I highly recommend Dr. Walker. We went in to Strawbridge because it was one of the few vets open late in the area and my dog had pulled the stitches out of her mouth after a cancer surgery and was bleeding. Dr. Walker saw her quickly and was able to get her in for surgery quickly to redo her stitches. He was great at communicating every step of the way and gave me lots of useful information to help care for my dog and prevent her from pulling out anymore stitches. The front desk staff was great as well and I appreciate that everyone was kind to my big Akita baby and made her feel comfortable because she’s been scared of vets lately after so many medical issues. She is now doing great and on the mend and I’m so happy we found this place. Definitely recommend. Thank you!!

I just moved from NC when my 16 year old cat became sick. I had used same vet in NC all of his life. Strawberry Animal Care was outstanding in everyway. Even under the Covid19 restrictions I could not have found better care. Dr German was very patient and informing regarding his oriblem, treatment and possible additional care that may be needed. Vet Tech was friendly and understanding. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone...

Every time I have come here they have been nothing but polite, professional, and attentive to my dog’s needs. They’re reasonably priced, they don’t try to sneak in hidden fees or anything like that. The vets are very good at diagnosing problems and know their stuff. I’ve never been to another vet as a first time dog owner, but I can say these people are legit. I will most likely be a life time customer for as long as I am in Virginia. Thank you Strawbridge!

I was referred to you by an prior employee. When I first called I was informed that due to an emergency I could not be seen today. Was given a number to another Vet. But hours later in my frustration I accidentally called your number. The man that answered the phone was very nice and informed me to bring Buddy Love in as soon as possible. arrived within the hour and Buddy Love was seen. Everyone was very nice and comforting. Dr. German called me and kept me informed of everything going on with Buddy Love putting me at ease.

My lil Penelope was seen at the ER on Sunday. I touched base with Strawbridge on Monday and by Wednesday she still had me worried so I wanted her to be seen. The front desk was very kind and was able to take us under an urgent care appointment to see Dr. Gilfeather. Once she was seen the Dr. gave me a call and explained her thoughts, concerns and a plan. She was extremely kind and asked my opinion on what I thought about the next step. By Saturday she was still not doing well and I had some concerns with Sunday coming up and not wanting to go back to the ER. Dr. Gilfeather tried to get in touch with me but I missed the call because I was at work. I sent my Mother up to pick up a special food and the Dr. came out to the car to speak to her. This to me shows the type of care this hospital makes a point to give. Not only were all the conversations pleasant and understanding over the phone but the service of care not only for the pet but for the concerns of the owners is top notch. From the front desk to the technicians to the Dr. I felt we were in the best of care during a trying time. With Covid going on there has been a huge change for not only the offices to have to handle but also the clients. We don't get to go inside, be greeted and made to feel comfortable as it was in the past. This office has taken the time to still establish a relationship with their clients in a much difficult time. I'm forever grateful for the hard work and commitment of this office. I highly recommend them and all the staff to anyone who is looking for a Vets office. You can be sure to be in good hands. Thank you again for everything you've done Strawbridge. Penelope is getting back to herself again and this momma couldn't be happier with the experience and care given.

The staff at Strawbridge Animal Care is second to none! Their curbside service during the COVID-19 pandemic was safe, responsive, and easy. They update you throughout the course of your pet's treatment either by coming out to your car or giving you a phone call. They addressed the concerns I had about Archie, and even recommended things to improve his health that I didn't even know about. I'll definitely be bringing my kitty back here again!

Dr. Gilfeather has always cared for my Chocolate lab as if he was her own, he has terrible skin allergies and is pretty accident prone. Anyone who mistakes her professional demeanor as anything other than caring is severely mistaken. She is a new veterinarian with a lot of heart, and an open mind. Thank you for always taking care of us.

I have been taken my baby Jackson there from the day he was born.. I recently brought my dads 16 year old dog Prince to VA . They have been amazing to my senior baby!!! I knew he was in good hands even while I was in the car waiting.. from the girls out front, techs, and doctors. They kept me updated. Thank you for your smiles, laughs, taking care of my babies.

I recently moved to this area and needed a new vet for my dog. The whole experience was very friendly and professional. I felt they really took the time to learn about my pet and what issues he had. The doctor had a new approach for a recurring problem and it’s working. I was glad to see that they just didn’t rush to prescribe an antibiotic as my previous vet did. This place was great. I definitely will be returning for all my pet needs and I recommend them. Awesome place.

Strawbridge Animal Care is one of the best veterinary clinics in the area. The doctors, the staff, the front desk, everyone involved is very compassionate and caring. My baby Thalia has been going here since 2018 and they’ve taken the best care of her. Dr. German is her primary doctor and I couldn’t ask for a better provider for her. Sarah also knows and cares for Thalia a lot and it just makes going there all the more wonderful. Keep up the great work guys!

We just recently had bought a puppy, and had some issues going on that was a little later in the evening and most other vets had already locked up shop until the next day. I reached out to them for advice and if I need to act upon it and find an after hours vet or possibly bring her in to them. The young lady whom had answered the phone was great. Although not a Dr herself she had put enough calming info to us that it calmed my wife and daughter enough to wait for the Dr to call me back, as she did within about 15-20 minutes. After a bunch of questions and voicing of concerns she also was patient enough to deal with us being understandably upset, worried, and scared to put us at easy that she had probably just ate something that didn't agree, and she was right, we had our bouncing, happy, energetic puppy back the next morning! Thank you to all of you on staff at Strawbridge animal!

Given that we had to put one of our pups down at this visit, I don't believe it could have been any better. Dr. Gilfeather was kindness and compassion personified, and made a horrible experience as easy for us as anyone ever possibly could. I cannot say enough about how good she was to my daughter and I as we had to bid our first princess goodbye. She showed such concern for Leia, our pup, and for us. We won't ever forget the horrible day, but will always remember her kindness and empathy. I cannot thank her enough for giving my daughter the comfort she did as my daughter bid goodbye to her first puppy and closest companion of over half her life. My most sincere thanks for that, and for ensuring our other pup, Aurora, was taken care of, and that we knew how to give her medications.

The love & care they shower her with is genuine, professionalism is a 10+When they had to put my other babies down they were as gutted as I was & helped me through a truly heart wrenching experience. I have & will continue to refer others to SAC for loving professional treatment of their fur babies 🥰🐾🥰

My puppy ate two corn cobs whole and needed emergency surgery, and no other vet that I called could make room for her. Not only did they fit in her surgery on what seemed to be a very busy day, but everyone on the staff was incredible and took such great care of her! They all obviously love every animal that comes into the office, and I’m planning on taking both my dogs there from now on. Definitely would recommend them!

Recently we had to put our 13 year old golden retriever down, It was one of the hardest decisions we ever had to make. During this tough time, the staff at Strawbridge was amazing. They could not have been any kinder from the tone of voice they used though the sympathy card they sent to us, signed by every staff member. They made sure we understood the process and let us lay right on the floor beside her. I can't thank you enough for making a horrible situation a little bit more bearable. The Searfoss Family

I would like to thank everyone at Strawbridge Animal hospital for taking such great care of my little Lulu. Lulu is a Silky Terrier and she was pregnant with only one puppy. She is also very scared of people she does not know but from day one was very comfortable with everyone there. We started out with pregnancy checks, then the dreadful realization that Lulu was not going to go into labor. A quick trip to Strawbridge revealed the puppy was no longer living and Lulu needed an emergency C-section and spay. A couple of abnormal issues were found and a second surgery was needed. Lulu is fully recovered and back to her usual self and we just can't thank Strawbridge Animal hospital enough. I feel like we've made friends for life! Thank you to everyone there especially Doctor Gibbs and Doctor Hollowell!
