Great vet's office. You can tell they care about your pet from the moment you walk in the door. They took all the time in the world to ask my silly questions.Jamie Carnes
I have been using Dr. Jeff for several years. They have always done a great job of taking care of my old dog Georgia! They cured her itching problem that stumped previous vets, and saved me money. I have recommended them to other friends and family, and they have taken care of them as well.Luke Turner, Hopewell Tire & Auto Service
Our dog, Maddie, jumped off the sofa today and immediately went down at lunch yesterday. Our first thought was that she had broken her leg. Called up Oconee Vet and spoke with Dr. Bangle. He rearranged his schedule to see her within the hour. After careful examination, it wasn't broken and we walked away owing less than most veterinarians charge for a regular visit. Guess where Maddie will go for her yearly shots.Trey Patrick
All of the staff is so friendly! My dogs receive great care here and I'm always pleased with the level of attention they receive.Patrick S
I was impressed from my first phone call until the time I left from my visit. Maddie had fallen and I thought her leg was broken. Dr. Bangle got us right in and took us right back. He did a very thorough exam on all of Maddie's legs and checked her over from head to claw. He was patient and and helpful with all of my many questions. He put me at ease from the first minute I walked in.S. Cousineau
I was amazed at how quickly Dr. Bangle figured out what was wrong with my schnauzer. He diagnosed the problem and even found a seroma I was not aware of now my girl is back to normal and feeling great! Thank you so much!!Michelle P.

"Great place to board your dog! My dog has been a repeat boarder for the past 4 years. He is cared for and checked by the vets during his stay. One time I brought him in with a wound and Dr Bangle noticed it and began treatment right away. It healed quickly and prevented a bad problem if it had not been caught in time. "Jim B
"Can't say enough nice things about Oconee Veterinary Hospital! The Docs are extremely knowledgable and they have a lot of specialized treatments especially for older dogs that are 2nd to none! The team is very friendly and they all treat your animals like family. They have been very helpful in working in last minute boarding for my dogs when I leave to go out of town. Give them a try. You will be glad you did!"Paul
