  • Wonderful Dr. Cearbaugh

    -K. Erickson from Duluth, GA
    Pet Name: Jake, Kara, Zoe, and Hollis

    Pet Image Dr. Karen Cearbaugh is the most wonderful vet. In the 12 years and 6 dogs I have owned (currently 4) she has given me the best care with the most compassion of any vet I have come across. She is constantly going to vet seminars and stays very knowledgeable on the latest and greatest advancements and recommendations from the national vet associations. I know whatever recommendation she makes is well informed and has my dogs’ best interest at heart.

    Dr. Cearbaugh is such a kind person and has a calming presence no matter the situation. I love the fact that she gives my dogs kisses and truly cares about them. My dogs are never nervous coming to VCA and enjoying seeing the staff and Dr. Cearbaugh. She has wonderful patience and answers all my questions, which are a lot having 4 dogs! Dr. Cearbaugh has gone above and beyond for me too many times to count, but especially when I lost one of my dogs unexpectedly.

    The rest of the staff is friendly and also genuinely cares for the animals. I know when I do need to leave them for surgery they are in the best hands. I drive all the way from Duluth and couldn’t imagine putting my dogs’ care in anyone else’s hands.

  • Saving Scarlett

    -Theresa from Woodstock, GA
    Pet Name: Scarlett

    My dog Scarlett was ill for most of 2010. If I began to tell you why Scarlett was ill I would have to write a book but needless to say she is healthy and happy now due to Dr. Ray and the incredible staff at Roswell Animal Hospital. They were just as concerned as we were over Scarlett's health issue and were incredibly caring. Dr Ray often consulted with vets/specialists at other facilities to try to pinpoint Scarlett's problem. She went above and beyond to help our dog and after months and months of one issue after another, we finally got Scarlett back to health. I never felt that I was pushed or being "sold" treatment either (like I have in the past at other facilities). Dr Ray called almost everyday and thoroughly explained everything to me. All of the staff are polite, caring and personable. I can't say enough good things about them!

  • Thank you.

    -Beth from Roswell, GA
    Pet Name: Odyssey

    Pet Image I want to thank the Doctors and staff - from the front desk to the wonderful folks in the back - for taking such good care of my little girl these past 11 years.

    I will miss her forever but I know that one of the reasons she was with me as long as she was is the people who cared for her during her life - from the Drs Garrett at the beginning, through Drs Decker and Hillier and then finally Drs Katz and Ray.

    It is a wonderful thing to have people who care so much about animals that the feeling of care spills over onto the people owned by them.

  • My Dog Actually LIKES It

    -Abi from Roswell, GA
    Pet Name: Nyx

    I have had animals all my life (both dogs and cats) and I have to say of all the vets I have ever visited this is the all time best! My dog actually likes to go to the vet. She perks up everytime we pull in the parking lot (even though it is her doctor - I wish I had her courage).

    I just want to say how happy I am that we found your institution!

    Thanks for all you do...
