Our Clients say...

Had a wonderful experience here, Dr. Fish is very kind and takes her time listening to concerns about your animals health. They even took the time to show me their personal bearded dragon! Prices are very affordable, I will definitely be using this vet in the future. Highly recommend.

Cheyenna Goss

The team at Apalachee Ridge Animal Hospital is fantastic. We recently moved to the area and needed a new Vet for our aging pets. Having only been seen one time in office, they were wonderfully supportive through the process of losing 2 of our 3 pets within a three week timespan. They supported us through some really tough decisions, even coming to our home at the end of one of our pet's lives. They treated us with such compassion during a very difficult time. We have continued to see them for our remaining aging pet, and we know she's in good hands!

Heather Wright

Dr Wanchick and his staff are all very dedicated, talented and caring professionals. They have provided our aging cats the best of care in both critical situations and normal office visits. We have trusted them for years

Jerry Nessen

I have taken my dogs here for several years. The staff is very friendly and professional and I would recommend this Vet to anyone. Their approach is very practical and they put your pets needs first.

Jason Mundy

Our dog, Chelsea was sick over night and yesterday morning. Dr. Wanchick picked up his staff in the snow and drove to hospital. It took Dr two hours to get to hospital (because of all the road blocks.) Dr. Wanchick treated Chelsea and was very professional. Thanks to Apalachee Ridge Hospital Dr. and his staff for coming out in this bad weather and taking such wonderful care of Chelsea. I am forever grateful.

Linda Sanford

Had a great experience with my cat, Clyde, about 2 years ago and now I have a doggie I’m going to take today for them to check out!!

Cindy Hill Souther

We have been bringing our three little dogs here for several years and have always had excellent service! Everyone is knowledgeable, friendly and really seem to care. Their prices are very fair as well. They always call the next day to check on my little ones which is really sweet! I also love that they send me reminders when it's time for my dogs' check ups!

Deb Puszewski

I have used this practice for years and highly recommend Hamilton Ridge...Their entire staff are always there to help you...even if it's just to listen! They are truly concerned and dedicated to the well being of your furbabies!!! Thanks for always being there for me Dr. Williams and Anna....you're the greatest!!!

Debra Adams

The folks at Hamilton Ridge Animal Hospital are always kind and efficient. I feel very comfortable taking my much loved pets there.

Margie Postlewate

I have been so happy with Hamilton Ridge. My dog and my cat have both had various health issues and I always feel I can trust the vets here. They are friendly, great with my animals, and they can always answer my questions. I never feel like they are trying to just take our money and make us pay for things we really don't need. I appreciate that honesty. I highly recommend them to anyone with fur babies.

Mary Catherine

This was my first time going here and everyone was super nice and helpful. They were great with my cat and I will definitely be taking my 2 dogs here when they are up for their yearly check up. Very pleased! ☺️

Cristina Vazquez

They are so friendly and truly care for you and your pet! They are reasonably priced and will work with you to find a treatment plan that works for your finances.

Lydina Cave

My experiences are always positive. They know their business. With the recent problem of a lense luxation and what options we have to save the eye, our Vet was concerned and used every aid to help us. We appreciated that very much.

Ann Hearn

Our first exam visit was excellent. We recently boarded our dog here while we were on vacation. The technician staff was great! When we returned for the exam visit, we were welcomed as if we were long lost friends. Anna, an assistant to Dr. Cummings was very personable and informative. Dr. Cummings was very professional and kind. Great job to all of the staff!

Larry Swaim

Dr. Rachel is wonderful! She provides great care and spends time answering all my questions. I couldn't be happier with the services provided!

Martha Newton

Such a clean facility. Vets and help are very friendly and professional. Best vet I’ve ever had!!

Len O'Neill

Everyone at the practice are so caring, I wouldn’t take my pets anywhere else !

Moria Mulholland

Great experience with Camden Animal Hospital so far! We took our sweet puppy to this vet as soon as we got her to get her wellness exam. She absolutely loved the staff. They're very kind, knowledgeable and not pushy! They love Daisy and she is so well behaved when she goes to the vet. Looking forward to continued relationships with this vet and highly recommend them to all pet owners!

Reece & Rick Nesbitt

Very positive experience. The Vet spent a lot of time with us. Her exam was thorough and all our questions were answered. The treatment plan was easily understood and reflected our discussion.

Sharon Myers

Started taking my sweet little dog, Franklin to see these AWESOME folks about 5 years ago. As a 'geriatric dog', it seemed like I was there a lot with one thing or another but they never once lost their patience with me (AKA: CRAZY DOG MOM) and were always very thorough/understanding/caring. Recently, I had to make the toughest decision ever to have my companion of 16 years put to rest. This office was NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING. The vet (Dr. Hurst) was just as emotional about the decision as we were but gave me plenty of time to say good-bye, come to terms with, understand and process it all. I live in Woodstock but when the day comes for our family to have a new dog...I have NO DOUBT we will choose Camden Village Animal Hospital.

Brandy Stegall

I've been going to Dr. Smith for several years and so appreciate the dedication and caring of the whole staff. She takes care of my 2 cats and a senior chihuahua I just adopted. She had cared for my Mom's toy poodle for several years before she passed in her sleep. I highly recommend Camden Village. I have been going there for several years now and are so compassionate and thorough. I recently had my chihuahua in for a dental cleaning and 5 teeth extractions. Dr. Hurst was so patient and nice explaining what teeth had been pulled, how it would affect her etc. I usually see Dr. Smith who is also wonderful!

Lynn Page

Dr. Stacy was at our previous vet's office. We missed her compassionate demeanor and complete explanations of everything that was going on with our dogs. Months later, when one of our dogs took a turn for the worst I decided I had to find out where she went. Dr. Stacy was her last hope. I found her at Camden Village Animal Hospital and she saw me immediately. Her whole staff was amazing! She took the time, that I know she didn't have, to spend with me and my dog to help me make the toughest decision of my life, letting her go. It was a devastating decision, but Dr. Stacy and her staff were so compassionate and sweet. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. My other pets will be patients for life.

Lisa LeMoine

I love Dr. Morgan Smith. She is so kind and caring with my dogs. I feel that the prices at Camden are reasonable and the treatment is excellent. They are very thorough but they don't recommend unnecessary tests to pad the bill the way a lot of veterinarian offices do. The vet techs and the receptionists at Camden are also wonderful. My Poodle, Julian, actually looks forward to his visits with Dr. Smith. He gets excited every time we pull up to the building. That's enough validation for me!

Debra-Ann Rufolo

This vet is absolutely awesome. My son and his wife has used them for years with his ferrets and dogs. My friend was in town for 3 weeks with her dog and it got sick. They did surgery and follow-up even though she was back in Austin, TX. My little dog scratched his eye and they were able to work him in the same day. I feel like they genuinely love the pets and go above and beyond with them. Highly recommend.

Joy Liebengood

I brought my very sick cat to them for an emergency which resulted in surgery and they were very compassionate to me and my family and took great care of my sweet fur baby. My sweet boy is still in their care holding on to his sweet little life but Dr. Miller and Dr. Rolf are taking the best care of him. I have no doubt they are doing the best they can in this situation.

Amanda Horsley

Genuine people providing top notch vet care for both my cat and dog. Been going here for the last 5 years. So glad I found them!!

Shara Ryan

We love Russell Ridge Animal Hospital! They have been a great vet for us for over 9 years and I completely trust all of my pets' care with them. Dr. Miller is the best.

Lori Mruk

In all of my years of owning pets and needing veterinary care, Russell Ridge is by far the best care we have ever received, specifically from Dr Miller. To date, Dr Miller has performed a canine ACL surgery (TPLO) for one pup, a tumor removal for another, and multiple dental extractions for a senior kitty. These procdures, although routine for the veterinary professional, is often very scary for the owner. Dr Miller has always gone above and beyond to accommodate and ease our concerns, every single time. I have always felt he treated my beloved furr-babies as if they were his very own, which is more comforting than words can describe. Regardless of the procedure, I feel my babies are in the most competent and skilled of hands and in the presence of the most caring of hearts. For all of my animals major procedures, we will always take them to Russell Ridge, particular to Dr Miller. You get what you pay for (and more) with this place.

Lauren Millman

The veterinarian was very nice. The place was clean and pleasant.

Ilse Descher

First time visit was such a pleasure! warm, smiling front office staff that was very helpful! dr. miller was awesome with our little morkie and took great care of her - and he took time to explain what was going on, and provided a sensible plan of treatment! highly recommend!

Rob Mottola

The best customer service, and the best service provide to my dog! All my appreciations to Dr.Brad Miller and crew! Thank you!

Terry Krasten

We originally came to this clinic following our Veterinarian. She no longer works here, so we were hesitant...changing doctors can be a big deal. However, I am very pleased to say that Dr Michael Wanchick was more than capable, he was very thorough and caring. You can easily see how he is genuinely concerned with animal welfare. We will definitely be happy patients with him as our Doctor. Dr. Mayberry is also fantastic. She explained everything that I asked about regarding my female cat being spayed. She is also very kind and caring. Mary, the Vet Tech/Front Desk/do everything girl is fantastic! She will take care of you and your pets as thought they are her own.

Laura B

Dr Mayberry is THE best!!! Spends so much time with us during our visits , going through every detail and explaining everything. Her priority is your pets health and gives the utmost care

Deborah Shattuck

I was worried when I heard that Dr. Travis had left the practice, 'cause we had been seeing her for about 10 years...but I think that the staff here is still excellent! They take really good care with my 16 year old lab/retriever mix. They are always patient & kind & gentle with my dog. Thanks for all you do! :)


Dr. Travis is the best! I will always use Dr. Travis as long as she is practicing and Mary is always friendly and very helpful with my pets and treats them like her own. I never worry about my pets while they are at Abbots Bridge animal hospital. They do an amazing job and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for veterinary care. The facility is always very clean and the staff is friendly, experienced, knowledgeable and very helpful. I'm always happy with the services they provide. Plus my pets love going to this veterinary hospital, so I know that are treated very well!

Anita Callaway

Dr. Travis at Abbotts Bridge Animal Hospital is one of the bests in the business! My parents have been clients of hers for over 25 years and I have been taking my dogs and cats to her as long as I've had them (7 years). Her patients are her top priority. I don't trust my pets with anyone else, so much so that I drive over an hour just to see her. She's great at laying out your options to enable you to make a decision on behalf of your pet. Fees are reasonable for services provided.

Layne Oldfield

Dr. Jeanne Travis and her staff at Abbotts Bridge Animal Hospital are amazing. Each time I have visited, I am greeted with a big welcome, never have to wait for an appointment, have plenty of time for my pets needs to be addressed and leave with a very reasonable bill for service. Above all, Dr. Travis is the very best. She is compassionate, incredibly experienced and cares so very much about MY animal! She is laser focused on the issues and I know I have a complete diagnosis of a problem. She is practical and is also cognitive to expenses, what works, what might not work so well. She gives me options and we talk through it. I wouldn't take my pets to anyone else! Great experience - each time!

Joanne Pecina

After hearing wonderful things about Dr. Travis, Leah and Stephanie from a fellow animal foster, I moved my animals to Abbotts Bridge Animal Hospital and I've been very happy with this practice. Dr. Travis is very intelligent and experienced. She is always looking up the most current research and she stays on top of practice information. Best of all, she educates the pet owner very well. It makes a huge difference in understanding and following advice when you know the why and how. Vet techs Leah and Stephanie are terrific. I really enjoy seeing all these ladies (and my cats like them, too!).

Aunty Ehm

I took one of my cats to Abbotts Bridge Animal Hospital yesterday (due to the recommendation of a friend) for a consultation. I needed a second opinion on his health - and possible steps to take in the future for him. It was a great visit. I appreciated the care and the time given to Rudy and me. They were very helpful and I look forward to keep coming to Dr. Travis for my cat's care. Thank you!
