The vets at Bowmont Animal Hospital are the most caring vets we've ever visited. They really are concerned about your animal -- but unlike many vets, they don't go overboard with testing and are very practical/cost aware. If tests aren't necessary, they don't order them.
I used to use a vet practice that was part of a large consortium in Calgary. (In fact, most vet clinics in Calgary are part of this group....that means they can keep the rates the same, i.e. very high, and consumers have little choice). The rates were through the roof -- it was unaffordable. Bowmont Animal Hospital is a small, independent clinic, and their rates are considerably lower than consortium clinics. I've saved hundreds of dollars -- and my pets are getting much better care.
They see animals -- not dollar signs -- at Bowmont Animal Hospital. Highly recommended.
