“This is a small neighborhood vet clinic at 16th and Emerson Ave on the east side of Indy. Low office fees, but that isn't necessarily a good thing.”

Pros & cons of Emerson Vet Clinic

I WILL say they have low office call fees, but that seems to indicate the quality of the vet care given also. One vet has been seen giving care with grime encrusted under his fingernails. This same vet was also seen mixing up the needles which contained microchips for 2 dogs-only a comment from his tech kept him from injecting wrong chips in the dogs. My human took her beloved Manx in to be spayed. They gave her back a kitten that was in no way fit to leave the clinic. They refused to keep the cat for observation another hour til they closed. The cat did not make it, and my human was told an internal suture came loose-seeing as how the kitten was unable to move, you have to wonder why the stitch came loose and allowed her to bleed out internally. The clinic was very unprofessional in dealing with a grieving human. When the owner, Dr Smith, was informed, she began screaming at my human because she misunderstood "your vet killed my cat" for" your vet should be killed", & when grieving human protested, the owner of the clinic lied and said she was recording conversation. This clinic was reported to the BBB, Angie's List, and the Spay/Neuter Services program, since that clinic takes their low-cost spay certificates. After refusing to make things right for grieving human, nudges from these organizations resulted in apologies from both owner and other vet employee. Adoption fees were paid by the vet who did the surgery for grieving human to get another feline companion. The Spay/Neuter Service had considered taking this clinic off their low-cost certificates, am unsure if they did that or not. I would not recommend this clinic for anything more complicated than a nail trim, I'm sad to say. Our east side neighborhood deserves better than a dirty clinic with a vet who confuses microchips and doesn't seem interested in cleanliness & an owner who treats clients so shabby. Other complaints from former clients are on Angie's List.
