Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

    I have taken both of my Bearded Dragons here and they're wonderful. Dr. Axson is great with the animals and really great at communicating with the pet parents.
    DJ R
    We always use Seneca Animal Hospital for our boarding and vet needs. They take very good care of our babies. The prices are comparable to other pricing, but the quality of care is my foremost concern. They were very compassionate with the passing of our beloved Chomper a few years ago. Everyone was very sad and hurt as we were, because that dog had our heart.
    Angela W
    The staff were most accommodating to us especially since I got the appointment day and time wrong. Seneca Animal Hospital is very fortunate to have Ashley on staff She was helpful and informed, something THAT appears to be at a premium in many facilities. The absence of chaos usually encountered in vet offices was a big plus for me. The kindness and concerns that Dr Moore exhibited was truly heartening and I am glad to have found you!
    Catherine F
    We take both our dogs to Seneca Animal, Darla and Otto, our pups love the staff and Dr. Axson and would never want to go anywhere else. They are the Best anywhere in this state. Thanks for all the care you give our babies!
    Melissa H
    Amazing people! They helped me out in a last minute emergency. They fit my dog in for treatment and treated us with the utmost kindness! I can't thank them enough for all they did!
    Holly M
    I've been taking my animals to Dr. Moore and Seneca Animal Hospital since 1999. I have two dogs and too many cats that are current patients there. The staff is very friendly and compassionate during the happy times and even the sad times. I always recommend Seneca Animal Hospital!
    Allison V
    We adopted a dog but haven’t had one in almost 20 yrs. Not knowing what to expect on our first well check at the Vet we were a little anxious. Everyone was super nice, explained everything. Customer service is top notch... went above and beyond my expectations. Treated me and our pet with patience and Kindness. A rare gem these days, I knew right away that this was the best place for us!
    Charlotte

    I just wanted to send a quick note and let everyone know that Tammy is the best groomer I have ever found for my goldendoodle. Most other groomers just shave him every time he is groomed to make it easy, but Tammy took the time to brush him out which keeps him absolutely beautiful. So glad to have found her:-)
    Allison C.
    I took my puppy Blu there for the first time today and was very impressed. I will never take her anywhere else if I can help it. She fell in love with everyone there and they made me feel very welcome. I would refer anyone to them!
    Rebecca T.
    Many thanks to Alexandra, Rand, and Dr. Moore for making our sweet puppy's first visit easy! They were friendly, explained everything well, and took great care of us!

    This place took adequate time to address all concerns for our dog.. couldn't ask for better customer service!

    Go to church with Dr. Moore I know he is a honest person, and checks everything out before making a final decision.
