We have been taking our pet family to Animals First for over 10 years. Dr. Scott and the whole team there are so friendly, thorough, caring, and really live what they do. We don’t take our pets anywhere else. A huge Thank You yo you all!!!!!

Such a kind, friendly environment. So knowledgeable and great with my dog. Sparkle was treated so well and had a very good experience meeting the vet and the tech.
Monique B
Friendly service and although it was my dog's first time, the staff went out of their way to make him feel welcome and comfortable. Dr. Dhaka was very knowledgeable and provided a detailed pre surgery consult and options, which I appreciated, after seeing 3 other vets for the same issue.

I know this vet is a great place to be when my farm dog who is normally afraid to go inside buildings just prances right in there with her tail wagging.
Rochelle G
As always Hershey was treated well and we left haply. When your clinic started allowing text messages allowing deaf people like me the ability to communicate especially in emergency situations has meant the world to Hershey, Quinn and I. Thank you
Derrick O
My appointment with my cat was very successful. Everyone there is calm, patient & professional while still being warm and kind. My scared to death cat did great in that environment. Would definitely recommend
Nicole B

Years ago, I'm not sure how many exactly. a friend recommended Dr. Barth and his team. His compassion and true care for animals has always been a stand out quality. Our dogs have been in for a few minor things and a few major things. Surgery for Pymetra, a c- section to delivery 2 healthy babies, a knee surgery and a little care after a neighbour's dog attacked ours. Most recently though, we had to say goodbye to both of our girls (16 and 13 years old) weeks apart. Dr. Barth and nothing but kindness, care and compassion for our fur babies and us. Thank you all for the support in taking care of our fur babies over the years.
Amanda M
Great first experience. They were patient and knowledgeable with our new puppy
Shawna G
Very good Friendly services, my pup Loves to go there.
Dave D
Very friendly and helpful staff! After explaining our pets visit, time was taken to address any questions and concerns we had. Even tho they were a very busy office we never felt rushed out the door. Also they have their covid protocols in place and are taking them seriously to care for us and our pets!! Thank you Animals First!
Desiree E
Animal first clinic was amazing! They rushed my sick dog in immediately when everyone else refused to help. The vet was kind and explained every test she was going to perform. Molly is feeling much better.., thank you from our family for helping our furry friend.
Katherine D
Love Animals First. Nothing but great service every visit. I feel that they are genuinely concerned about the welfare of my dogs. I have two senior dogs that had terrible teeth. I am more than pleased with the care they recieved at Animals First and the dogs think so also. Thank you!

Cindy C
They were all so friendly, supportive, welcoming, and so very helpful. I couldn’t wait to get Diego in to see a vet, and they were the first to get him in. Thank you! He’s on the mend
Amber D
These talented people have been outstanding to say the very least both visits have been phenomenal.
We had one of our cats spayed here and now that everything has healed there is no evidence whatsoever that she had the procedure done.
More importantly our pup became very very ill in less than 24 hours, they explained what was happening and what procedures were needed in detail for us and because of their swift work our beloved pup is on his way back to a full recovery. They didn’t push any extras on us like lots do just plain brass tax.
Please if you need help go to these guys and gals you’ll be beyond happy that you did!
Ian S
Very friendly and professional service. They went out of their way to accommodate my cat’s needs and kept me updated on his progress every step of the way.
Elizabeth J
Been going here for years with my dog. Honestly the staff are amazing. They work hard, do their best to fit everything in and work in emergencies as needed. I can honestly say they are the reason my dog is still with me today. The willingness to try new things, different treatments and work with an owner always brings me back.
Jenny C
My experience with Animals first clinic was very good they were very friendly and they looked after my older dog highly recommended them
James Van B
I recommend Animals First Clinic because they really do put animals first. They are most accommodating when you have concerns about your pet and they find ways to have your concerns addressed even when the clinic is overwhelmingly busy.
Maxine R
We have a very accident prone Golden Retriever, and have had to bring her in for a couple emergency visits the latest one was on a Sunday. They got us in within 40 minutes of our call, got her stitched up and repaired!
All of the staff at animals first have always been nothing short of amazing. They are kind and companionate, and my girl actually doesn’t even mind going there!
Would highlllllyyyy recommend to anyone with fur babies!
Sierra C
I really enjoy the friendliness of the employees and they really cared about my pet. They answered all my questions and concerns before I took him home. Phoned to check on how he was doing.
Alison H
We had to put our 17 yr old cat put down recently and your staff was amazing! They treated us and our Mickey with dignity and respect. We were giving time and all the information we needed to make that difficult decision. We cannot thank them enough.
Tanya I
Dr Huber is awesome. Professional, clear and knowledgeable. I don’t know if there’s anything she can’t help with! Vanessa is also awesome she is the staple of the clinic and is very efficient.
Sam S
I always am very happy with the services and staff at Animals First. They are so understanding and kind, especially in an emergency.

Bruce L
The care and attention that Dr. Barth and all his staff give Shep and I whenever we come to the office is wonderful. They always remember Shep and go out of their way to make him comfortable, help with his pain after surgery and my worries and concerns
Mac S
Our chihuahua Taco was attacked by a bigger dog on Tuesday. The staff at Animals First took control of our poor boys care immediately making him as comfortable as possible and keeping us informed of his condition while treating him. I have complete confidence in the doctors and staff there. They even text me the next day to see how he was doing, if he needed anything else. I am forever grateful. Thank you Animals First
Gordon L
The check up was awesome!!! Very knowledgeable staff who care and the vet was phenomenal with our 2 dogs and they loved him!!!!!
Shelley M
Everyone is wonderful here! Always the best care! Animals First has been our vet for over 8 years and I highly recommend them.
Sandi S
It was clear that Dr. Barth loves his job and loves animals. Friendliest vet ever, and Gracie felt comfortable and loved. Lots of good information in a non-rushed, comfortable visit.
Cathi H
We have taken our animals to Animals First, because of the same great service, dedication and love to our dogs. They really do put Animals First! Thank you!
Margo & Dan B
This is the most caring vet clinic! All the staff is friendly and make our visits easy and convenient. We will always go here.
Sally S
Dr. Barth is a very committed and knowledgeable vet. He really cares about the animals :)
Carmel B
I was referred to Animals First based on my dog requiring luxating patella surgery that is beyond what my regular vet does. Everything from the consultation to the surgery and information provided for her at home recovery was amazing. I live a couple hours away from GP but if I was from GP this is the office I would want to have as my regular provider.
Nikita L
Animals do come first at your clinic! The whole staff and Dr. Barth are awesome. My two pugs love visiting your clinic. Your care is outstanding!Thanks Dr. Barth and staff.
Celeste O
Friendly, light atmosphere, exceptional care. You can tell when people treasure animals and when they don't. Best vet clinic in the city, hands down.
Kim Q
So impressed with the care and compassion shown when I took my Shih Tzu in for assessment, the after hours call and the way they helped Tina cross the rainbow bridge. you now have 4 more potential clients as well as myself!!
Laverne T
I was so thrilled with this clinic. From the phone call, to checking in, to picking up my dog, the staff was so super nice and friendly, AND they even called me a couple days later to check in on my dog. I was so grateful. 100% recommend this office!
