Had a great experience with Dr. Cooke. He explained everything that was going on with my dog and the possible treatments with expected outcomes. I will continue to bring my pets to him with confidence.

We have been with Dr. Cooke for more than 8 years, and Dr. Cooke and his staffs have been wonderful to our babies (yes, we call our pets babies...!). I have (and had) aging cats and, as you can imagine, as they get older and older, we experienced various medical issues including the end of the life. I cannot imagine to get through these issues without his medical advices as well as great customer services and cares towards the pet-owners' emotional support.
In my experiences, I had 3 cases of Hyper thyroid problems, which one case was detected early enough so that Dr. Cooke can perform surgery and resolved this condition. For two other cats, due to their age (15 and 16 year-old) and health conditions, we have decided to treat them with medication. One cat developed kidney failures towards the end, but both of them had great life. They finally walked over the "rainbow bridge" peacefully at the age of 17 and 18-year-old. I also have a cat developed diabetes who is enjoying his life very much under the Dr. Cooke advise and direction (he is now 17 year-old). I also got 2 rescued kittens, and Dr. Cooke and his staffs have been great to deal with all the medical issues related to kittens as well.
If anyone who are currently looking for any 2nd opinions or in search of a new vet, I would strongly recommend Dr. Cooke and his staffs.

We've been going to Dr. Cooke for years and have never had a bad experience.  He is gentle with our animals and has never been one to rip us off.  We highly recommend Dr. Cooke and will continue to bring our cats and dogs to him for many years to come!!

I had to offer a review of today's visit.
My Tara, the dog in my avatar, came up lame for some reason. She won't put any weight on her rear leg. I panicked, and called Whitney (the receptionist) about 9am and she made me a day of appointment for 3.
Dr Cooke and his tech gave her a very thorough exam, and diagnosed our problem. Her knee was twisted. He told me to give her an aspirin every other day for pain, and to strictly limit her activities--maybe even crate her. If her problem doesn't go away in a week or two, bring her back in.
Total cost: $18.50 He didn't try to sell me some drugs or unneeded treatments. Even when I suggested taking an xray, he said he didn't think it was necessary.
I just don't know too many people who won't try to jack up some phoney balooney bill on you. I came into that hospital ready to spend $500 if I had to, but I didn't even need $20. You tell me this ain't the place to be.....
Thanks again Cookie--You're a good old boy!
