We've taken our much-loved rescue mutt, Lucky, to Healthy Pet for her annual check-ups for 3 years. Cheerful staff, clean lobby and exam rooms, friendly techs and vets who are able to answer questions without getting bogged down in complex details. Compassionate, respectful of owner approaches to pet care and medical treatment. From having a cancerous tumor removed to getting her rabies shots, we've been pleased! But don't tell too many people about them: their schedule for day-of appointments for more urgent care is already hard to get in to!

I have been taking my two cats to Healthy Pet Vet Clinic since 2008 and plan to continue. Their dedicated staff are friendly and always show concern when treating my pets whether its a regular check-up or for something more serious. The newer location on East Washington Avenue is easy to get to and offers more exam rooms and space in the waiting area. They also offer boarding for small animals (rabbits, ferrets, etc) and cats which is a great bonus. I have housed my cats here once or twice due to travel and always feel more at ease knowing they are in good care.

Having been to several vets in the Madison area, I have been very pleased with the Healthy Pet experience. The care has always been greater than expected, and they know the specifics and needs of my dog (greyhound). I have always been able to get an appointment when I need to, and the emergency/non-appointment service has also been exceptional.

They were very knowledgeable and loving to our little furry babies. DR Christman is very friendly and willing to explain all the options for your pet.

We saw Dr. Carla for years with our greyhound and received excellent care. My beagle was recently at Healthy Pet for a dental cleaning and I was very happy with the cleaning itself and the care he received from staff. The vet technician thoroughly reviewed the paperwork and explained optional procedures we could add-on. I felt he was very straightforward with me about what was recommended for my dog's health and what I could opt out of this time. I received a call from the doctor shortly after the procedure describing the condition of my dog's teeth as well as very clear pictures showing the work that had been done. The whole process was very thorough. The costs at Healthy Pet have always been very reasonable and fair. Overall the staff have a great dedication to keeping pets at their best and that keeps me coming back!

The Cliff notes version: Skilled, caring, dependable veterinary care where I know that my dogs & cat are getting the best possible medical attention and that we're all in loving hands. The novel-length version: I started taking my pets to Dr. Christman (or affectionately, Dr. Carla) over 14 years ago when I moved to Madison. I had a greyhound at the time, and their physiology is somewhat different than other canines. Dr. Carla had and has a greyhound herself and does veterinary care for a number of greyhounds, so that was my original point of reference. Over that 14 years, I have had a number of dogs and cats (plus added a husband--to whom she does not administer medical care, but has enthusiastically embraced into the fold), and every visit has been five-star worthy. During that time my pets and I have also seen Dr. Roberts and Dr. Oxley, veterinarians who have our deepest trust and respect. The Healthy Pet staff of vet techs and receptionists/administrators are also amazing. Our animals always get excellent care, and when the path to follow might be in doubt, the veterinarians and staff at Healthy Pet educate us about the options and help us make the decision that's best for us and our furry family. They also recognize that budgets can be a consideration no matter how much we love our pets, and seek to work within that as well. I have never felt that they recommended a test or procedure that was superfluous and wasn't in the best interests of our pet and us. As George Carlin so accurately observed in his black-humor way, "You're not just getting a pet. You're getting a small tragedy in the making." The pets my husband and I adopt are often seniors, so as pets age and quality of life seriously deteriorates, we have experienced more than our share of seeing euthanasia as the humane choice and saying good-bye to companion animals. This is such a difficult time for anyone losing a beloved family member. When those times have come, Dr. Carla has created an atmosphere of loving respect for the animal and for us, making it feel like a sacred moment rather than merely a clinical procedure. We are so grateful to know we have Healthy Pet Veterinary Clinic to support us and our pets through the entire life cycle, and making that life the best quality possible.

We have been going to Healthy Pet since we got our first greyhound. Since then we've had another greyhound (Dolly), a husky/border collie mix (Stanley - Dr Carla even came to our house when he had to be put down at age 19) and now a terrier mix (Maggie). All had their share of issues and misfortunes but our trust in the Vets at Healthy Pet has ALWAYS been rewarded. Drs Carla, Roberts and Oxley treat us and our dogs with compassion and caring. That goes for the entire staff as well. Maggie used to balk at going into the clinic but now she happily goes in, even though the examining room still makes her anxious (did I mention she's a terrier). Even then, she allows poking and prodding from the staff that she would NEVER allow from us. That just might say it all.

Great service. Both my dog and my cat are seen here and we have always been happy with the service. My cat was originally going to an all cat vet where she didn't do well, we bring her here now and she is calm and easy to work with.. it was a complete change! Decent prices and they don't seem to try upselling. 100% recommend.
