Prices are WAY too high: My dog needed an adenoma removed from the base of his tail. The vet who saw him quickly worked him in to his schedule for later that afternoon. Very fast and responsive service. The bill, however, is a different story. To set the context, we were referred to a veterinary ophthalmologist a few months back to have my dog's right eye removed due to a tumor. This sub-specialist was able to perform the enucleation surgery under general anesthesia, place a prosthetic eye, send the diseased eye off to pathology for analysis, and have a follow up appointment all for $1,600. The one payment, due at the time of surgery, covered all of that. The veterinarian at Murphy Road Animal Hospital was able to perform only the removal of the adenoma under light sedation (i.e. not general endotracheal intubation) for $1,350. This DID NOT include pathology (which we refused) or a follow up visit. This leaves me wondering why a sub-speciality surgeon is able to perform a much more complicated procedure involving the eye under general anesthesia, place a prosthetic eye, get pathologic analysis performed on the diseased eye, and see the patient in follow up for only $250 more than a general veterinarian can remove an easy-to-get-to adenoma from the base of a dog's tail without using general anesthesia, getting pathologic analysis, or seeing the patient in follow up. The staff has usually been very professional and courteous. And to be fair, the veterinarians are very smart and courteous as well - thus no complaints from this end. I feel taken advantage of on the price.

We drive 30 minutes, past several vet offices, to get to MRAH. The entire staff is AMAZING. They have taken such good care of us… we'll never go anywhere else in Nashville.

I have had to bring my Chihuahua, Pebbles, twice to have a tooth extracted. Both times Dr. Bell was amazing with her, and very helpful with letting me know the best course of action. The staff at Murphy Road are really great and very helpful, and I have always felt comfortable with bringing both my dogs to see them for everything. Additionally, their grooming services are AMAZING! They always do a great job and I feel much more comfortable bringing them here as opposed to anywhere else.

The vets here are great, at least my experience has been positive, with both my dogs. BUT ... they are so very overpriced. They seem to charge about three times as much as other vets, and let's face it, the service they give isn't all that different. Sometimes the vets also seem to underestimate how much something is going to cost, and I feel like I'm constantly being pressured to bring my dogs in more often than necessary (post cards and emails aren't enough - they also text me more often than I'd like), and they must make a fair amount by upselling their clients. It just gets old after a while. When telling me that my dog needs a behaviorist (yes, that's the same thing as a pet psychiatrist), I was told it would be $300.00. That's AFTER they had me pay over $300 in blood tests, to which they wanted to add another $200 test. Oh, wait - that $300 for the behaviorist? No, it was really going to be $450, just for the first consult. Really, all I wanted was to find some medication for my over-anxious older dog. She was born with a strong prey instinct, it's part of her breed, and we know we have to manage that. But no, no medication UNLESS I pay a minimum of $750, and THEN we can maybe talk about that. So frustrating - I've talked with my dog's boarder and trainer, and I feel like I understand the problem because she's my pet and has lived with us for over a decade. I guess I feel a bit used at this point, but I'm just going to cut my losses and move on to another vet that won't try to milk us dry. Bottom line, great vet care, but not a very affordable price. If you think your pet is so super special that they need to be in the care of one of the priciest vet practices in town, then you've found the place to fulfill your needs. But if you love your pets but also have to pay your rent or mortgage, find someone else.

I took my new puppy here this morning and I had such a good experience I had to write a review! The nurse and vet (Dr. Cassidy) were wonderful and so gentle and generous with the treats that my puppy received several shots and oral medications and never even noticed. I also got a very thorough speech on new puppy ownership and a huge folder full of helpful information. We left with a month's supply of flea/tick/heartworm medication and some medication for a parasite found in her stool sample. For all of the treatment she got, I expected to walk out with a huge bill, but the prices were very reasonable and much less than I expected. I will definitely be taking my puppy here for her regular care!

Have always had a good experience here. While I have never boarded, the exams and care under Dr. Bell have been exceptional! The front desk staff is not only friendly, but knowledgeable and if they don't know, they'll find out for you. After providing our senior Dachshund, Hugo, with the best care, and when the time came, they helped us see him lovingly and compassionately to Rainbow Bridge. So, I was eager to introduce our new rescue, Charlie (another Dachshund), to Dr. Bell, and everyone there. Bring your four legged loved one here with confidence!

We work hard to answer every question in detail, no matter how unique the question is. Dachshunds are a special breed aren't they! We always love to hear the pitterpatter of feet from the weenie dogs!
