★★★★★ It’s obvious the entire staff loves animals! They had so much patience with our pup, Ralphie and we feel he was very well taken care of. Colleen Jacox is a gem!Mission: K.Mission: K. ★★★★★ 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!Update: 2 years later and im still bringing my elderly baby here. I absolutetely trust the vet and everyone else here to do their best to make sure my kitty is happy and healthy!Meredith P.Meredith P. ★★★★★ I truly appreciate the staff and all the doctors here. They are friendly and knowledgeable. The staff are able to make informed suggestions on procedures and products. They really care about their patients and their humans.Darcie P.Darcie P. ★★★★★ You mainly have to make an appointment, but we did not have one our dog was really sick and they made time for us. They were really friendly and patient with us.Yury T.Yury T. ★★★★★ Great care for the cat. Dr. Johnson took time to treat Scooter with care and the staff goes above their duties.Anna F.Anna F. ★★★★★ My dog of 10 years, Cookie had been feeling sick for four days.I brought her to Dalton Vet. Practice today and found out she was in organ failure due to cancer. Unfortunately my only option was to euthanize her so she could go peacefully. The staff was EXTREMELY kind and patient with us. They made sure we understood everything well. I am very grateful and happy with the service my family and I received. They gave us a canvas with Cookies paw prints as a memoir.🐾 We were also given a box shaped like a casket so we could give her the proper burial she deserved . We were given a private checkout from our room so I was able to take her home peacefully. Thank you for all you have done for Cookie and I! We love and appreciate all you do! 🤎🍪Andrea D.Andrea D. ★★★★★ The doctors and staff of the new Dalton Veterinary Practice are very caring and took very good care of my fur baby today!

This was the only one that did! They were able to get me in immediately and the atmosphere was so relaxed. Everyone was SO thorough and nice. I've been trying to find a vet in Dalton that compared to my vet in Chattanooga and I think I have FINALLY found the place! Thanks yall!!!Alli R.Alli R. ★★★★★ Our Maggie has been a patient here for 4 years and has always received excellent care. Today the staff went above and beyond expectations. As I was bringing Maggie into the waiting room she got loose from her collar! She headed for Cleveland Highway and I couldn’t catch her. I was sure she was going to get hit by the oncoming traffic. All of a sudden the entire staff was out there trying to catch Maggie (60 lb). She was scared and fast but they were able to tackle her in the middle of Cleveland Highway and save her while getting a few injuries themselves! I am thankful beyond words that they saved our Maggie! As I thanked them they all acted like it was all in a days work and just part of their job. Then they calmly and compassionately proceeded with the appointment! These people are heroes! Their actions today reflect the amazing care your furbaby will receive at Dalton Veterinary Practice & Kitty Corner!norma K.norma K. ★★★★★ They took very good care of my sweet fur baby.

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”.

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. ★★★★★ Awesome folks! They treat you and your pets like family!Robert E.Robert E. ★★★★★ My dog can be a little feisty especially when she's not feeling well.
