RUN don't walk - away from this clinic!
These people don't have a clue about animal treatment or customer service - but they sure know how to make a buck!
Case 1: my dog started to become inactive one summer which began to concern us so we took her to Animal Hospital of Oakville. They couldn't find anything wrong but said she would need to be on prescription food for the rest of her life - but couldn't explain why - her appetite had not been affected. I'm dumb, but I'm not stupid - I politely declined. Lo and behold, come the autumn and cooler temperatures and we had our same old dog back, raring to go. It turned out...our dog doesn't like to run around when it's 40+ humidex - go figure.

Case 2: Same dog, a few years later, was vomiting and heaving for a few days, also loss of appetite. Foolishly took her to the same vet - $300 later - she had an upset tummy. They went straight to her pancreas (?!), did bloodwork, and were even going to x-ray her (thank God the machine was out of service that day!) - all this within the span of half an hour! Just ludicrous! I felt like such a fool - I, as most other pet owners, try to do what's best for my dog and Animal Hospital of Oakville blatantly exploits the owner's concern and lack of animal knowledge for their own ends.
While I don't like to tar all vets with the same brush, I've heard vets compared to used car salesmen but I actually believe a crooked vet is worse as they are playing on people's emotional bonds to their pets, not a hunk of plastic and metal.

I will NEVER subject my dog to another visit to Animal Hospital of Oakville!
