Very rude Dr. Over priced by a lot....Wanted to muzzle my dog just because she is a pitbull mix. The staff were very pushy and even after i gave the consent to use a soft muzzle the staff then wanted to use a cage over it.. They are very rude, uncomforting, very snippy. The doctore here was the worst ive ever seen. She should not be a veterinarian. She came in the room and didnt greet my dog at all and made her get muzzled before even introducing herself in the room. I can see if my pet was vicious and growling uncontrollably but my dog was in so much pain she was lathargic and them staff and doctor just did not care. We walked out and went to VCA west hartford. Old canal is also very expensive. Many places had lower prices than them and much better atmospheres. We will never bring any animal there ever again. The doctor should find a new occupation for sure. Read Less

The reason I’m giving a three out of 5 is because most of the staff was great with my cat. They were very helpfully and supportive of the needs of my cat and trying to find solutions to her behavioral problems. The problem I have with them is the communication skills they lack. The office was trying to make me pay for another set of vaccinations that I already had paid for and wasn’t completed correctly because they did not tell me they couldn’t do it at the appointment I purposely made for the booster. So now I paid for something that never was conpleted and was told I would need to pay again, even though I followed through on my behalf, and they never told me they couldn’t do it and when I called questioning why I was receiving reminders that was what I was told.

We have been with Old Canal for years for all our two dogs and our cat. They have been really good with us, and they are very considerate and sympathetic when ours eventually got sick and passed. Just picked up our cat's memorial clay paw print today and they still were very sincere and showed sympathy. I have no real complaints and I recommend them, and will definitely go back when I have pets in the future. Read Less

The staff are really nice. First time there I waited almost an entire hour just to get in a room, so my kitten was in a box the entire time. I do understand this part because many people were there putting their animals down that day. I had brought a stool sample, they lost it and never processed it. Probably because they were so busy. The REAL kicker, the vet gave me some generic kitten advice and actually recommended declawing my kitten in the future "depending on what kind of furniture I have". I couldn't run out of there fast enough with my little girl. Read Less

The staff is very friendly, and they truly care about the customers and pets. The prices could be just a little cheaper, however it's totally worth it.

We began using Old Canal when we adopted a boxer back in 2002. We decided to use Old Canal as they had been seeing the 2yr old boxer since she was 8 weeks old. Eleven years later, we are still very satisfied patients of Old Canal. Dr. Hexter and his staff are amazing. They have seen us through good and bad times with our dogs, always with kindness and compassion to both us and the dogs. They have been with us as we said goodbye to our beloved boxer at the age of 12 in 2012 and when we had to make the hard decisions for our other boxer earlier this year. There is a lot of support and zero judgement found at Old Canal. And there just wasn't anywhere else we even thought of going when we welcomed new adopted mastiffs to our family. Read Less

If I could do 0 stars I would. Dr. Fahey was very rude and condescending. She told me if my dog didn't get spayed within a day or two she'd die. The infection just started so she has time in real life, but according to her she didn't. She told me if I could not afford this $1200+ procedure to give her up. I'm 19, how will I just make that money appear? I will certainly find a new veterinarian.Read Less
