Complete Confidence in this Clinic! – I just visited this clinic for the first time with my only 'child'. I was more than pleased with the cleanliness, professionalism, and above all, compassion and caring I found with the McCormick clinic staff. Dr. Karst was knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding. Judith and the other techs made us feel like we found a new vet home for our beautiful husky. He is scheduled for surgery tomorrow and I have the utmost faith in the doctors and staff. They helped us make an informed decision at a most difficult time, and I feel sure they have us and our beloved Blue in their best interests.
Now using another vet – I used to be satisfied with this vet, however when my cat recently got really sick they wouldnt fit him into their day. I knew they had openings hey just didnt want to stay late. My cat had cancer and died soon after. I do not recommend.
Find another vet....I sure did – I had used McCormick for 8 years & always thought they were great. The staff is very friendly & the vets seems okay. However, last year my dog started sneezing way more than normal & started reverse sneezing. I took him multiple times & every time they said it was allergies, but they never tested him for any allergies, just gave him random pills. Even when he started weezing through his nose, they still said it was allergies. It wasn't until a bump developed on his nose they recommended I get an MRI. After I go the MRI, they didn't even call me back with the results...I had to call them. Over the phone they casually told me he had cancer & it had eaten through half the bone in his face, that there was nothing I could do. They didn't bother to prescribe any pain medication or medicines to help the infection the cancer was causing. Thank God I went to another vet & they helped manage his life for the last three months.
Not once did McCormick test for anything, not once did they offer end of life care. Thanks to their ineptitude, the cancer was caught too late & I lost my dog two days ago. Stay away from this vet. Unless it's yearly vaccinations they are worthless. I recommend you go to someone who cares.
I love this clinic! – This place is great! I got my Macy and had only had her for a few days when she started acting strange. She'd gotten her first shots here, so I brought her in. She was very sick (I forgot what the name was), so she had to stay overnight for a couple of days. And the overnight fee IS ABSOLUTELY $15.00. They were great the whole time they had her - told me I could call anytime, even though they called me daily, and when I did call they'd go right on back and check on her. I live nearby so the office staff even said to drop by and could see her if I wanted to. After I got her back, she was healthy and happy. After a couple of days, the staff called again just to see if she was alright.
Every time I go in there - with or without my dog - they know me and my dog by name. They commented several times about how she grew as a puppy. They even helped me with an issue I had about spaying her (I had gotten her out of state and they were demanding I get her spayed, even though they gave her too me at around 5 weeks - way too young). The staff worked with me and the other clinic nicely. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these people.
Hurried – I would only recommend using this vet clinic for routine shots or picking up heartworm medication or flea medication as it is convienient in it's location. I was having major problems with my small dog who had been very healthy for 11 years. She began having episodes of fainting, possible seizures, frothing of the mouth and respiratory distress. I tried with 3 appointments and seeing all 3 vets to figure out this problem. One vet acted as if she was just an old dog and oh well - and also insisted my dog had cardiac issues and if I wanted to she could have an ultrasound done, but really there was nothing we could do about it as this is just part of having an elderly dog. I am in the medical field and knew she did not have CHF b/c those were not her symptoms. Another vet told me this was just common with this breed and she would not die from it - she would relax and start breathing again. Well, that is scary! My dog was turing purple, I had to give her cpr a few times. I knew this was not normal. The other vet did not offer much information - started her on prednisone thinking she had some allergies, and sent us on our way. I never got one phone call back from either of these 3 vets to see if the meds were working. In fact, this medication made her more sick and her episodes went from one a month to 3 a week. I sought a different vet who took her off this medication as it had induced cushings disease - now being off of the medication for a month - no more cushings. We found she needs an antacid - prevacid once a day - it has cured all problems! She was having a vagal nerve response to GERD causing her to pass out/heart stop. My old dog is fine now, playing and enjoying life now. I always felt rushed and like I was ridiculous when I went in McCormick Animal Clinic - like they only wanted to deal with the routine yearly appointments of shots etc. The easy stuff. I recommend if your dog has an illness, take them elsewhere. I gave them 3 tries. It seems the 3 vets do not consult with each other at all - I got 3 different diagnoses without any tests being run. I had to beg for tests and a thyroid panel to be run. I just felt they did not care about helping us and I take my dog's care serious as she is part of my family. I hate that I gave them 3 tries and caused my dog more harm in the process.
Life Savers – I moved to Hermitage in June of 2008, My 10 year old dog became deathly sick in November and I found this clinic in the phonebook. I called and took him right away. He was anemic and they had to do a transfusion immediately and saved his life. Thank God I took him when I did, Dr. Karst said if they would not have done the transfusion when they did my mack mack would have died. They are so very nice and really care about your pets. I would recommend this clinic to anyone.
BEST SERVICE EVER – MCCORMICK ANIMAL CLINICS STAFF IS VERY KIND. I HAVE BEEN GOING THEIR WITH MY DOG SPARKY FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS. I MOVED HERE FROM MAINE AND DIDN'T EXPECT TO FIND A PLACE AS GOOD AS MCCORMICK ANIMAL CLINIC. THEY TAKE THE TIME TO CARE FOR YOUR PETS NO MATTER HOW LATE THEY HAVE TO STAY. THE KENNEL PEOPLE ARE VERY REASSURING. I WOULD TRUST THEM TO LOOK AFTER MY SPARKY FOR YEARS. 60$ A NIGHT?!?!?! WHAT IS THAT PERSON TALKING ABOUT? THEY ARE ONLY 15$ PER NIGHT. I WOULD GIVE THE TWO KENNEL PEOPLE : BETH AND DANIEL A PROMOTION. IN MY PERSONAL OPINION THEY HAVE DEVELOP A RELATIONSHIP WITH SPARKY. EVERYTIME I DROP HIM OFF FOR BOARDING, RATHER THAN HIM SCRAPPING THE FLOOR, HE WAGS HIS TAIL AND LEAPS OVER TO THEM. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THEM!!!
Do you want the best Vet in the Nashville area? – My animals are as important to me as my child and therefore, would only take them where I thought they could get the best care. I just lost my baby (Chris) a sweet loving poodle that was my best friend after 18 wonderful years. I have taken Chris to McCormick Vet Clinic since the day (1990) I got him as a small puppy. Everyone has always treated him as the special boy that he was and always made me feel that he was getting the best care possible. I moved to Mount Juliet and continued to make the drive because I truly trust them to give my babies the best care possible....why try someone else, when I know I already found the best? When Chris passed, my heart was broken as I loved him very much and the staff reached out to me to try to make this lost somewhat easier. I will always be thankful for the great care they gave to Chris as welll as the care that they currently give to Carly (Yookie-poo), Tay (Shizoo-poo) and now Corey (teacup poodle) and wouldn't take them anywhere else.
Thanks for all you do! Pam Posner (Ease my troubles, that's what you do)
Pet's rule the house! Keeping them healthy.... – I have used this office for my pet's for about 15 years. I have never had bad service and everyone that works here is very friendliy and loves pets. I have had numerous pets over the years and most of them look at going to this office as a social event. Both of the doctors are excellent in their 'bed-side' skills and act as the professionals that they are trained to be. The tenure of the staff speaks highly of the work environment as well. it is nice in this fast paced world to patronize a business that remembers your name and your PET's. They probably like them more anyway. ..
No idea where the bad review came from, always courteous and will find a way to make time for you at a fair price. I remember when he had a small office in the plaza before building his facility! Anyone that I know that has used them has stayed a client. They will help you place abandoned animals on their posting board also.
I hope to try out their kennel facility over Christmas, but they were full by Thanksgiving so someone please cancel so they can take care of my boxer... Mom's cats won't share the house with her.
Ignore the negative review... – I just have to comment on the previous bad review. That information is completely false. I've been taking my dog there for 5 years and they've always been wonderful. The boarding area is very clean and I went back there without a single argument. And the boarding is $14 a night, so I have no idea where that person gets off saying it's $60! My girl was very happy there and I was gone for 10 days! She came back healthy and perfectly fine. The doctors and staff are very kind, compassionate people who truly care about animals. I also recently took a kitten that I found had been injured by a car in there and they helped me right away. Didn't charge me anything for it (yes, some places would).
