Every doctor, every technician, everyone at the front desk are always there for us. They are excellent at diagnosing problems and they are the kindest people on earth. They helped us with the loss of two of our pets over the last few years and now they are helping us raise our 7-month old Yorkie. I can't say enough good things about them all.Nina G.Nina G. ★★★★★ While visiting from out of town, my chihuahua puppy, Ollie, injured his eye. It was a pretty scary injury as it can lead to blindness, if not properly treated. I called vet offices closer to our location in Sharon and no one was able to see us. Sand Road Animal Hospital’s Dr. Brittany went out of her way to accommodate us in her busy day of surgeries to examine Ollie. She was kind, very knowledgable and helped us get the necessary medication to heal a corneal ulcer. I was also very happy with their more than reasonable pricing. If I lived in the area, I’d happily drive a little further to take my dogs to Dr. Brittany.Thank you very much Dr. Brittany and all of the Sand Road team!lisa C.lisa C. ★★★★★ Thanks to the great vets and staff for an urgent appointment Saturday.

I have lived in several different states and had Veterinarians in all of them. I have also been to several Vets around the tri-state area and none of them have been able to compare to the outstanding quality animal healthcare as Sand Road. The Vets and staff are also very pet-parent friendly, they communicate in gentle, loving, yet professional terms, and I trust them fully. I have been a client of theirs for many years now and I travel a long way to get there. Through their guidance and services I have become a better parent to my pets as I have learned so much from them and feel very emotionally supported by them in addition to my pets being kept in excellent health! All of the Veterinarians at Sand Road are exceptional doctors who provide wise councel on decisions for your pets. I feel that Dr. Dave Sandefer is one of the finest human beings on the Earth and his kindness radiates outward to everyone around him. We need to have more people like him, so our whole planet can become a flourishing garden of health and happiness.Moon D.Moon D. ★★★★★ Lovely staff. Always care about your animal before they care about lining their pockets. They are on the pricier side, but they know their worth.Ally B.Ally B. ★★★★★ This is the best vet I've ever used. I've been a loyal customer since 2009, even when I moved to Virginia, I scheduled my appointments around my visitations here. They really truly care about you and your pets and not the money. They are honest and never take advantage of the situation. They do their best to accommodate what you can afford.Jacquelyn S.Jacquelyn S. ★★★★★ Each person - doctor, vet tech, assistant, office, desk - everyone at Sand Rd Animal Hospital is full of caring, compassion and expertise.Pam W.Pam W. ★★★★★ We have been long time patients of Sand Road Animal Hospital!!

Thanks for the superior service Sand Road!Demitri C.Demitri C. ★★★★★ Most amazing caring people understanding they did a surgery for my dog many years ago she only had 2% chance of living and they still did the surgery she survived and there’s also so many private donors that help me pay for the expenses I had recently brought a baby kitten to them that was stepped on and they have done everything in their power to help save her this place is the most amazing vet So many vets will turn you away if you don’t have the initial exam fee not these people they care they love the animals as if they are their animals these people do not get paid enough and I cannot express how thankful I am for all their helpsurprise LOL doll's J.surprise LOL doll's J. ★★★★★ Dr. Dave and staff were wonderful with my baby through his surgery and recovery.
