For real. And I go way back. There was Dallas, then Scott then Randy. This was the only place that could heal my dog when they got sick. Every place else charged me but then my dog never got better. Did I say 5 stars? I should have said 6. Your baby will love you if you bring her/him here. Read Less

Laytonsville Vet Practice is AWESOME. The office itself is welcoming and the office staff are great. The doctors saved my cat's life 5 years ago and I will be loyal to them for life because of it. I trust all their doctors and appreciate how patient they are and explain everything in great detail. They always ask if I have any questions and always spend the time to answer any questions I do have. Dr. Fitzpatrick & Dr. Paynter are really wonderful doctors. I recommend this practice 100% and I wouldn't go anywhere else! Read Less

Laytonsville Vet is great. I have since relocated in Maryland and drive almost 45 minutes to take my dogs there. They don't run unnecessary tests, give accurate estimations, tell you what you need and what isn't a necessity, and honestly include a lot of services that I have been charged elsewhere for. One of my dogs is a special needs who has been going there for almost 8 years.They recommended he get supplemental weekly injections for a vitamin deficiency. The first few weeks they gave him the shot, gave him a full look over (without an exam charge) and then recommended I do the shots at home myself to save money as he seemed to be doing fine. They in no way play money games. I can always call and get an appointment quickly and they are always polite and know my dog by name when we walk in. Over the years I have seen all of the doctors and they are great; however my dogs primarily see Dr. Godwin if she is available. Read Less

We trust this place 100% with our little one's life. They're convenient if you live in Laytonsville otherwise plan on a two lane Highway, 40-minute one way trip I know all the GPS and Maps say it's a 25 to 30 minute drive at night with traffic however every time we go it's virtually guaranteed that we get stuck behind some slow moving truck or tractor or tractor trailer or sightseeing tourists so plan your drive take your time it is a beautiful trip through the rural Montgomery County scenic Countryside. It's stressful enough for your pet going to the vet anyway so just relax enjoy taking the scenery deep breaths fresh air will do the speed limit if you can everything be fine) it is highly recommended to make all checkups and Non-Emergency yet essential appointments at least 7 to 10 days in advance call and schedule it out the earlier you come the better your chances of seeing Dr. Claire Godwin DVM often times they are booked solid, then always be on schedule or early for your appointment they respect that and will minimize your wait time. Be careful not to nickel-and-dime the vet with ad hoc request make all your issues and concerns known when you call and make the appointment that will minimize your cost if you nickel-and-dime the debt during the appointment they will nickel-and-dime was more like quarter and dollar you back time is money their time is precious and valuable like a bird and very expensive but you get what you pay for so the value is priceless. after the on-call vet has seen you and written up your charges on your way out the door when you're leaving you get the added bonus of paying in full with cash or credit card if they know you the will accept a check you pay n full there are no payment plans and we've been going there for 20 years. Now you're probably asking which vet do you see it as practice generally we see the owner whenever we can see if it's her practice she's been there since day one we've known all our lives and were used to her when she's not available that's fine too because the other vets that work under Dr. Claire have all been there for over two decades, since we've been clients at Dr. Claire's Animal Oasis on the Hill, formerly known as Laytonsville Veterinary practice, a model Professional Medical Facility who's six-day-a-week daily operations would not be possible without the assistance of a very dedicated and diligent staff, tirelessly supporting a well-trained, dynamic team of Top Notch - Doctors of Veterinary Medicine uses the latest State-of-the-Art equipment.

I've been to several vets and I've finally settled on Laytonsville Veterinary Practice. It's the ONLY practice that offers quality, comprehensive care without playing money games. Our favorite vet is Dr. Fitzpatrick but if he's not available, we also like seeing Dr. Paynter, who saved one of my dog's life. The office is clean and spacious and the vets are compassionate and competent. This practice offers some of the lowest prices in the area, they are not over priced. I know, I've researched high and low. Veterinary care is expensive and emergency is especially. The other review stating that this place is over priced couldn't be more wrong. Laytonsville Veterinary Practice even received Checkbook's top mark for low prices. Read Less
