Dr Shaffer is a very well informed and
knowledgeable vet. He is a good surgeon as well. I have been bring my pets here through the years and I have never had a problem. They work so well with animals and provide the best treatment.
We want to thank you for all your help
and support while our dog was sick. You took the time with him that he needed and really helped our family through a hard time. You really made it so he wasn't suffering in the end.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful care you gave Barney. He lived a longer and very full life thanks to your diagnosis and compassionate treatment. He always lived life to the utmost and we are very grateful to have shared it with him and to have had you helping in his time of need. We would also like to thank all your staff especially Patty, Noel, Jamie, Shoshanna, Angel, Carolyn and everyone there who loved and care for Barney. Thank you again. -Dan-
Not a good experience.
As I read all of these reviews to select a vet as we are new to town, thought we couldn't miss with selecting this vet. Our experience was SO very different than what is written here and the references to a female Dr. Shaffer. We had a male Dr. Shaffer and found him to be impatient, more concerned about his "professional" opinion than listening to what was going on with our dog; and not aggressive in treating a very serious condition. We initially thought a one-vet practice would provide us with personal care. The real consequence was the unwillingness or inability to deal with a serious condition quickly and to not carefully or thoroughly review blood chemistry results. After 3 1/2 weeks of care that included five visits in this time, and two misdiagnosis, our dog has died. When I came in to get our file for a second opinion, I was met with a rude receptionist and a vet who seemed insulted that we would do this. His ego was clearly more important than the care of our dog. The second vet was more concerned about the dog; immediately sent us up to CSU, but by this time, it was too late. I would not go to this vet if your animal has a serious illness or you need aggressive action.
