★★★★★ I can't say enough about the amazing staff. My family has used this vet for 20+ years and I am still blown away with how caring and knowledgeable this absolutely fantastic group of wonderful people have been to me and my dogs.ROBERTROBERT ★★★★★ Very friendly staffAnthony M.Anthony M. ★★★★★ My cat got his tooth knocked out. Brought him to Blue Cross. Everyone was great! And the cost was very reasonable.Jonathan B.Jonathan B. ★★★★★ Once we made the appointment, there was no waiting.Our Jake was having anxiety while in his carrier, so it was very quick.The staff was wonderful,from Reception to the Dr. The Dr made it very comfortable for us and our Cat.The pricing was very reasonable as well.I would recommend this place to whoever is looking for a friendly environmentHali F.Hali F. ★★★★★ Brought my 4 year old rescue pitbull this morning after two biting incidents. I’ve only had him for 6 months and his aggression is new as of about 2 months ago. Got lots of great information on further steps and I learned lots of ways to handle his aggression. After talking with them, I have changed my mind on putting him to sleep and we are going to attempt training and some medications to see if we can regulate his anxiety. The staff were very calm in dealing with him as he hates new people, small spaces, and anything in between. The ladies showed me how to be confident when he is stubborn and to ignore his attempts to be scary. They did not critique me and our handlings at all and we felt very safe going there and will definitely be going back for his bloodwork exam. They cleared a path for him walking in and out of the building as well.Rylenn R.Rylenn R. ★★★★★ We've been coming to Blue Cross since we moved here in 1998. They have been great working with us and caring for our many dogs over the years. They are professional, kind, and knowledgeable. They rock!Anita B.Anita B. ★★★★★ The shock and pain of seeing my beloved cat suddenly in such a critical state was utterly overwhelming. The Hospital staff was so kind and gentle and patient in supporting me as I made the brutally painful decision to let my cat go in peace and without pain. The friend who was with me and I have talked about how the vet could not have handled my experience any better. I will always be thankful to her.Lulu P.Lulu P. ★★★★★ The people here were so nice and respectful to me. They used they/them pronouns to refer to me and I didn't ask them to do so, they were just being respectful as I look semi androgynous. This made me feel really comfortable and welcome. I felt very listened to and they answered all questions I had thoroughly. The vet was really helpful and had a lot of great information for me and was really nice. I liked everyone I interacted with here and I really feel like they love and care about animals as much as I do. Definitely recommend.Rabbitt P.Rabbitt P. ★★★★★ I've had very good service here and have loved seeing Dr Jess each time. All the staff are very kind and loving to our precious pets.nancy T.nancy T. ★★★★★ I have a fearful dog who doesn't like to go to the vet.

Our previous vet wasn't as compassionate or professional as they once were. The dynamics changed over there since COVID, and we needed to find a new place.We found Blue Cross Animal Hospital from a simple Google search and even from just the first initial call to set things up, everyone was super nice and friendly and willing to help us. The staff are so quick to respond to emails too! We love all the staff here and they are so sweet and compassionate.Dr. Jarvi and Dr. Mack are some of the best and most compassionate doctors we've ever seen. They are very gentle with our pets.

Even if they were super busy, they found a way to get us in for a walk-in just so our cat was taken care of.
