★★★★★ Everything from setting up our first appointment to the day of our visit was great. It was easy to set an appointment and we did not have a long wait. On the day of our appointment, we were seen promptly and everyone was nice. Our questions were answered and everything was explained. I could tell they cared about our experience and our pets!Paula M.Paula M. ★★★★★ Awesome staff! EVERYONE was cordial, kind and accomodating!!MzVon2 SMzVon2 S ★★★★★ Dr. Caldwell was terrific and so kindRA 4.RA 4. ★★★★★ Just moved back to town full time. Was in need of a vet and wasn’t excited about using the vet I had visited for years. Read the reviews and they are only a couple miles away from my home , so I decided to try them. Was extremely pleased. Upon walk in, no smell of pets. Very clean, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Vet was the best. She was gentle with my dog and gave me the cause of my dog’s distress and options to treat. She didn’t push expensive procedures like many vets do. With an older pet, she gave me suggestions. I told them I would be back and would make this my pet’s new “doggie doctor place”. Highly recommend!!!Caroljean I.Caroljean I. ★★★★★ I made the appointment for the following day with ease and speaking to a human, super friendly and knowledgeable staff. This was our first visit here and we will continue to go here.wanda C.wanda C. ★★★★★ We took our Golden Puppy to Dalton Vet. Clinic for a horrible hotspot.It was 5 days ago and it's almost healed.The Staff was so nice and accommodating.Dr. Shipe was so sweet and very knowledgeable especially since she specializes in animal dermatology.I think we have found the perfect fit for us at Dalton Veterinary Practice from now on.SherrySherrySherry ★★★★★ The service and employees are spectacular!!! I highly recommend 👌John B.John B. ★★★★★ From the veterinarian, Dr Shipe, to the vet tech, to the front desk staff, I felt so welcome and assured that my kitten was receiving the best of care. I plan to start bringing all 3 of my cats to them for their vet visits.TerryTerry ★★★★★ Above and beyond. They were so kind and sweet to my sick dog; it's very clear they love animals here. They were very thorough in the exam and recommended a reasonable treatment plan and didn't try to tack on unnecessary charges. The exam fee is a little high at $70 but the service is excellent so I can't complain. I'll be bringing both of my dogs here going forward.ETA: They even called the next day to check up on him and see how he's doing 😭 such excellent customer service!MM ★★★★★ My sweet, but hyper around new people, American Bully did very well with his caregivers today, Tanner and Dr Johnson. Our first visit to Dalton Veterinary Practice after our vet moved, so I failed to hear the names of the “front desk” ladies who were efficient and helpful. Cost of Sentinel for >51# dog through their affiliate online pharmacy was less than Chewy. After benefiting discounted fees at the National Spay Alliance Foundation the cost seemed high, but the reality is I was fortunate to have had NSAF care/prices as many years as it lasted. I am thankfulDonna D.Donna D. ★★★★★ Great staff very friendly loved the Dr. Took great care and explained everythingDevin E.Devin E. ★★★★★ We mostly come here to have our pugs nails trimmed. Something neither of them is very fond of having done. They can be quite wiggly and their nails are difficult to trim because they curl. Their groomer knows just how to calm them and is able to get the job done without stressing out the dogs. Appointments are always done on time too. No long waits in the lobby. Very clean facility. Highly recommend.D T.D T. ★★★★★ The doctors and staff of the new Dalton Veterinary Practice are very caring and took very good care of my fur baby today! I would not go anywhere else.Laura J.Laura J. ★★★★★ Awesome folks!

They go above and beyond to take care of my pets.Last Friday I was taking my cat, Annabelle, for a recheck appointment and on the way to the vet, she had diarrhea. It was on her and in the carrier. It was a mess.When we got to Dalton Animal Care North & Kitty Korner, I told them what happened and asked for the nearest sink so that I could get her cleaned up.They said, 'We will take care of it, it's no trouble at all. We will give her a bath and clean the carrier. We will bring her out in a few minutes, she will be all cleaned up and ready to go!'The staff showed so much kindness and compassion to my Annabelle!

I will continue to use them.Johnny D.Johnny D. ★★★★★ So much luv for the babiesEvonne D.Evonne D. ★★★★★ I really like this place. The Drs and staff are fantastic.Laura S.Laura S. ★★★★★ I just moved to Dalton from Chattanooga and needed to find a new veterinarian here in the area. I don't want to subject my cat to an hour long drive if I don't have to. My cat started constantly sneezing large amounts of snot out of his nose and seemed really uncomfortable. I tried antihistamines but nothing helped so I searched on Google for local vet offices and this was the first one that came up.ONLY 7 MINITES FROM MY HOUSE! Yay! Also, they had a "cat specific" side called Kitty Korner AND could get me in the next day. So thankful for that.The appt went great. They were on time and they were the nicest vet staff I have ever encountered.They ran some tests and decided we needed to try antibiotics (a shot and nose drops).He was sneezing less that 1st night!4 days later and he's hardly sneezing at all and isn't producing the massive amounts of snot that he had been. He seems to be in a better mood too.He's 13 and he played harder last night than he has in years. I am so thankful they got my eldest baby feeling better!I will definitely keep bringing my cats here!Meredith B.Meredith B. ★★★★★ I reviewed this office already but l received a prompt to review it on this visit also.The facility is clean and welcoming. The tech and the vet were knowledgeable and kind. They were thorough with my fur baby's care. They seemed genuinely interested in her. Like most veterinary clinics it is costly. But that's what we do for our fur babies, go the extra for them because they are worth it.Mary-Catherine Rogers (.Mary-Catherine Rogers (. ★★★★★ Dr. Summer Faith is awesome very knowledgeable and very caring to my dog.Rodolfo N.Rodolfo N. ★★★★★ I love Dalton Animal Care because Dr. Johnson is a truly caring Veterinarian that cares not only for her patients but also her patients owners. Her staff is the best I’ve known out of any Veterinary Clinic in Dalton, Georgia, their caring for your animals and you yourself. All around the best in my opinion to take your animals to, they have my 100% trust with my animal for sure !!lori P.lori P. ★★★★★ Very friendly & informative staff.They was absolutely amazing helping my cat today.10/10 would definitely recommend!!!Jonnie C.Jonnie C. ★★★★★ Friendly staff. Loves on my pets and always does a professional job. Very informative with my needs.Tricia O.Tricia O. ★★★★★ Doc was very sympathetic and explained every possible option including euthanasia which is what we ultimately chose. She made the process as easy as possible and did not make us feel like we were wrong for choosing this.ronald M.ronald M. ★★★★★ Always super understanding and helpful during emergencies or crisis, Kayla is always super sweet to my furbabies!! Will continue to come here for the foreseeable future🥰🥰Grace D.Grace D. ★★★★★ I see mixed reviews but the vetenerian that is there now is Mrs. Johnson. She is excellent! She takes her time and will discuss with you what is going on. There is never no rush. Let me just say, she saved my cats life! I found her with maggots in her paws and Mrs.Johnson let me come to her office everyday for idk how many days it took and she removed them until they were no longer there. All bc some other vet didn't want to do that. I am thankful she didn't turn me away, she was so patient and understanding. She knows what she's talking about. She treats our animals as if they were her own. It's not expensive , it's reasonable prices. All of the staff are so nice and courteous. I am thankful that I found this Veterinarian and her staff!Big Socks' M.Big Socks' M. ★★★★★ This is where I go for general vet services.

I didn't have a doctor currently, so I googled veterinarians in the Dalton area and decided to call Dalton Animal Care North. They were able to give me an appointment the next day. They took excellent care of her. She is feeling much better. I now have a new Veterinarian for my pet. The pandemic has made me change a lot of things and I am grateful and thankful for this Clinics care for my pet on such a short notice.Elaine H.Elaine H. ★★★★★ Excellent service.
