Staff is always friendly and quick to take care of any questions, concerns, or scheduling requests. Will definitely be... Read More >

I have never had problems with regular check ups. The vets and staff are all very caring and knowledgeable. But tonight I needed to get in touch with their on-call vet. Their posted after-hours emergency number rang and rang, then disconnected, over and over again. EDIT: After about a half hour... Read More >

I can't say enough good things about Oakwood! Today was my first visit & from the moment I walked in I was more impressed than I've ever been in the 8 years with my previous vet, then it only got better from there. The Oakwood staff had no idea how frustrated I was with my previous vet with their... Read More >

Blake and his staff were amazing. I got him to laugh when he got the play on Jackie's name Jackie O' Russell, being a Jack Russell. He had a great bedside manner and Jackie felt very comfortable with his attentiveness. I could not recommend a better place for my girl to go. Read More >

Read more reviews from our clients:

The staff and veterinarians are excellent and seem to genuinely care about the wellbeing of the animals they care for. We are grateful for the time Dr. Barkow spends with us after our weekly visits to answer our questions and help us through the chemo treatments our dog is receiving. We have been very pleased with our dog's care. 
- Debbie W.

I called the day before for a non-emergent appointment and got in the following day to see the doctor. 
- Wendy H.

Very caring and compassionate staff. Dr. Barkow is the best. He always is professional, but makes you feel that your dog is important. Everyone is very warm and it makes you feel cared for. 
- Karyl H.

All of your staff is wonderful - we couldn't ask for more caring and knowledgeable people to care for our kids! 
-Connie Y.

I am always impressed by the care and treatment that Harmony and I receive. I recommend Oakwood Animal Hospital to everyone I know. Thank you! 
- Marcy P.

Impressed that staff seeks additional certifications; even Dr. Barkow, who was not our visit vet made a point to say hello; while a lot of pets go through your office, we always feel that ours is part of the family, they are empathetic with our past losses and glad to see that our new pets are part of our happy family. They make us feel like a connected family versus just a customer/number. 
- Deborah H.

The staff has always been so helpful and so kind and I have no fear leaving my dogs in their care. 
- Karen S.

The facility is always bright, clean and welcoming in appearance. The doctors and staff are welcoming, cheerful, professional and sympathetic when appropriate. Our pets are members of our family and the care that we have received has been - over the 25+ years that we have been clients - outstanding. I cannot imagine life without Oakwood Animal Hospital and knowing that you are always there for your 4-legged and 2-legged clients. Thank you for being a very important part of our family.

My dog Tasha, a black lab, received excellent care from Oakwood Animal Hospital for her entire life. This included 4 operations for cancer, all of which went well and prolonged her life for several years. At age 12, she had to be put to sleep. It was a difficult and traumatic event for us. Dr. Barkow sent my wife and I a kind sympathy letter. It was greatly appreciated. 
- Gregory H.

Tuffy always gets the absolute best of care whenever he goes for a visit to the clinic!!! They are the best...from the front door office staff and Dr. Playford to Tuffy's favorite Dr. Barkow!! They don't just say they care about your dog, they prove it. He is thoroughly examined during every visit and they work with me as a partner in his treatment. They are totally supportive. I tell everyone I know to go there with their pet and I always will! Keep up the good work!
