Phenomenal place, phenomenal people. I had a legal case with my dog, and i couldnt ask for better service. Doctor is most professional person I met dealing with vets for the last 11 years in USA. I was already in stress coming to the clinic and doctor as well as his assistant took the best possible care of our case at the highest of possible professional level. They both made sure that as me as well as my dog felt further only comfortable, he is unobtrusive to an animal, asses the situation quick, finally he’s intelligent and down to earth doctor of an amazing intuition. He even helped me deal with a women from animal control over the phone who was biased towards us even though he didn’t have to do it. His confidence, intuition and down to earth posture meant literally everything to me that day. Not only genial vet but - a human being. Im not afraid entrust him most precious thing I have - my dog. And my dog trust him - from the first sight. Reasonable price they don’t treat patients like an opportunity to make money - like most places these days. We feel blessed we found this place and can’t say thank you enough ❤️🌹 Read Less

We love Dr. Shapiro and Nurse Natasha. They are the kindest, most compassionate and most professional animal health specialists out there. I've had a lot of dogs and cats and been to numerous specialists for different reasons, but Dr. Shapiro seems to always find an answer. His interest is only in the animal. So happy we were referred to him. Additionally, if there's a problem with your pet, Natasha the nurse said you can contact Dr. Shapiro on his cell phone. He's always there for you. Who does that? Nobody in the world!! Read Less

My elderly cat started peeing blood so we took her here. Dr. Shapiro and Natalia are really good, caring people. The costs are very reasonable and I felt that they were very practical with their advice for my kitty and did not order any excessive tests or recommend expensive procedures that ultimately would not have helped her. Unfortunately, unlike another reviewer, they were not able to save her from her advanced kidney disease. I do, however, appreciate how well they cared for her in her last few days. When my other cat started throwing up blood, I took her here as well, and she is doing much better. Additionally, I feel that they are very available. They answer the phone reliably, and are often able to make appointments the day of, which I very much appreciated as my kitty's health debilitated quickly and without much warning. Read Less

We have this amazing cat, that suddenly started pulling his hair out from both sides of his back. I consulted with a veterinarian whom consulted with a few other veterinarians from another animal hospital, not one of them had any type of a decent diagnosis. Then a miracle happened, my friend gave me the phone number of this magical diagnostician Dr. Shapiro, our problem was solved immediately.

If i could give this clinic a rating of negative negative & negative stars I would. Dr Shapiro is an awful human being. He does not care about being a vet and only cares about making money. I brought my dog here when he was sick and Dr Shaprio basically told me my dog is going to die..um excuse me? He said yeah..he'll probably die..those were his exact words. Obviously I broke down and he said he needed to keep him for the night because he was loosing blood. My dog at the time was a healthy 5 year old and had no problems whatsoever. He kept him overnight and when I went to go get him in the morning he was groggy and looked like noone had even taken him out to the bathroom. Thank god he ended up being total fine and just needed some antibiotics but what I want to know is what kind of doctor tells you oh..by the way..your dog will probably die! The only reason I brought my dog here was because my parents brought their cat their for years and I don't know why they said he wasn't that good but I think they were just used to him. I've never seen anyone at the clinic and there's no nurse just Dr. Shaprio. I've never met a vet that doesn't like animals and he is one of them. He doesn't even pet the dogs and cats or give them any attention like most vets do. He is an evil person and an awful vet..stay away!!! Read Less

I am surprised people keep taking their pets here. Why? I guess it's because the prices are reasonable compared to large/full service animal hospitals, but it's not worth compromising your pets health over. I brought in my cat for a simple yearly check-up and vaccinations. He doesn't handle going to vet well, and he has to be sedated. When I brought him in, there were no assistants around. I was expected to "assist", even though I explained my fear of needles (not to mention my lack of qualifications). The "sedative" given to my cat caused a sort of paralysis; he fell to the floor (luckily was not injured from the fall of the examination table); he was then partially paralyzed for nearly two days. He was clearly in pain, and could barely move. Whatever was given to my cat was clearly not an appropriate "sedative". The next year, I took him to the Wheeling Animal Hospital. The cat still had to be sedated during the exam, but he was awake within minutes and back to his old self with no negative side effects. Do not bring your pet here. There are much better animal hospitals in the area. Read Less

If i could give this clinic a rating of negative negative & negative stars I would. Dr Shapiro is an awful human being. He does not care about being a vet and only cares about making money. I brought my dog here when he was sick and Dr Shaprio basically told me my dog is going to die..um excuse me? He said yeah..he'll probably die..those were his exact words. Obviously I broke down and he said he needed to keep him for the night because he was loosing blood. My dog at the time was a healthy 5 year old and had no problems whatsoever. He kept him overnight and when I went to go get him in the morning he was groggy and looked like noone had even taken him out to the bathroom. Thank god he ended up being total fine and just needed some antibiotics but what I want to know is what kind of doctor tells you oh..by the way..your dog will probably die! The only reason I brought my dog here was because my parents brought their cat their for years and I don't know why they said he wasn't that good but I think they were just used to him. I've never seen anyone at the clinic and there's no nurse just Dr. Shaprio. I've never met a vet that doesn't like animals and he is one of them. He doesn't even pet the dogs and cats or give them any attention like most vets do. He is an evil person and an awful vet..stay away!!! Read Less

I am surprised people keep taking their pets here. Why? I guess it's because the prices are reasonable compared to large/full service animal hospitals, but it's not worth compromising your pets health over. I brought in my cat for a simple yearly check-up and vaccinations. He doesn't handle going to vet well, and he has to be sedated. When I brought him in, there were no assistants around. I was expected to "assist", even though I explained my fear of needles (not to mention my lack of qualifications). The "sedative" given to my cat caused a sort of paralysis; he fell to the floor (luckily was not injured from the fall of the examination table); he was then partially paralyzed for nearly two days. He was clearly in pain, and could barely move. Whatever was given to my cat was clearly not an appropriate "sedative". The next year, I took him to the Wheeling Animal Hospital. The cat still had to be sedated during the exam, but he was awake within minutes and back to his old self with no negative side effects. Do not bring your pet here. There are much better animal hospitals in the area. Read Less

I'm taking my dog to Animal Health Clinic of Wheeling for over 3.5 years. Dr Shapiro is a great specialist, who always knows about your pet needs, and ready to help.
