My daughter was a vet tech there for a few of those! They have a caring and professional staff from the people at the front desk , the techs, and the docs. It is a tough job, I know as I have a cat who is very stressed when he has to go in and he becomes nasty aggressive and they are able to do what they need to do for him and even handle his behavior with humor! CN’t beat that! I would highly recommend this clinic!Sharon S.Sharon S. ★★★★★ Dr Estes and staff are wonderful.

We appreciate you so so much, definitely gained a client. The staff here is absolutely wonderful. Very nice atmosphere. & they have the cutest office cat! 5/5h lh l ★★★★★ I want to start off by saying my beloved dog Snickers was never seen alive by this hospital. We took her to Banfield the entirety of her 14 years of existence. In her last weeks of life, she began treatment for a severe heart murmur which caused syncope. On 1/13/23 our vet wanted us to watch her to see if the heart medication would start to work. However, the next day she went into cardiac arrest. Stunned and panicked, we searched for the closest pet hospital and discovered Big Creek. Unfortunately, she passed before we reached the hospital. As I approached the hospital doors, I could see staff running towards me. They immediately grabbed her and prepared a room for us to say our final goodbyes. I have no words for the compassion shown to myself and my family. They didn’t know us or my baby but immediately treated us like family. I can not thank your team enough for being there for us in our time of need. If we ever decide to adopt again, Big Creek will definitely be our vet.Charity R.Charity R. ★★★★★ Caring, amazing team of animal care professionals. They have taken care of our pups 🐶 and cats 🐱 since they’ve opened. Grooming service is excellent, facilities are super clean—great convenient location.LaDonna L.LaDonna L. ★★★★★ Big creek animal hospital has the MOST compassionate veterinary staff I have ever come across. Not only were they fantastic in working with me financially but also just extremely understanding and caring during a very difficult time. Take your animals here. You won’t regret it.Patricia M.Patricia M. ★★★★★ They really care about and take the time to answer your question.Renee-Claude P.Renee-Claude P. ★★★★★ Vet was thorough and explained everythingDanny W.Danny W. ★★★★★ We have been trusting Dr. Estes with our fur babies for about 7 years now. Her love for them and what she does is evident every time we see her. When we lost our Chaya in June we were devastated- we have no words for the compassion and love shown by every member of the team at Big Creek. There is no where else I would bring Freya, Percy, and Hathor- and no one I trust more with their care. There will never be enough that I could say to thank them.AdaAda ★★★★★ Great Drs and staff. Truly there for the love and health of the animals.Julie N.Julie N. ★★★★★ Great service only widh they were closer to Atl. They love and take care of my greyhound Sam.MannyManny ★★★★★ They were very quick to see my puppy last minute on a weekend. I am very appreciative of how quick the appointment was, and how thoughtful it was for them to call and check in afterwards. Would definitely recommend!Marcus J.Marcus J. ★★★★★ Had a new patient appointment with my Nervous Nelly dog over the summer. Dr. Estes took great care of her and the tech was super nice too. Since then I have filled a prescription with and they were very helpful with getting it filled. Overall, though I only spoke to the doctor over the phone because of COVID protocol I am still happy. My dog came out wagging her tail which is the most important thing for me!! And they are in a great location!Shannon H.Shannon H. ★★★★★ We had a great experience at Big Creek Animal Hospital. Unfortunately, our 12 yr old dog Bella is not doing well. She is going into heart failure. We came to Big Creek for an echocardiogram to confirm what she had. Dr. Estes was so compassionate, caring and informative! It makes a huge difference having a doctor like that when you are getting such bad news. The office staff were so sweet and caring as well. They made every effort to make Bella comfortable and to comfort me. I also appreciated that they only charged me for what I had asked to be done and no extra charges were tacked onto our bill. Thank you Big Creek and Dr. Estes for being so great during this difficult time!Myra R.Myra R. ★★★★★ Love BCAH!Sue B.Sue B. ★★★★★ We love this Animal Hospital, the doctors, and the staff. We have been with them almost 5 years, every experience has been 5*. The doctors and staff are compassionate, caring, they love their jobs and most important, they truly love our fur babies. They are dedicated to caring for them & make it easy to get an appt. by being open till 7pm week days & have hours on Saturday & SUNDAY!!We see Dr. Pollard, she is so attentive to my pets’ needs. We love how well she communicates and partners with us, making us feel that the care of our4-legged family members is of the utmost importance .A special shout out to Jessica, the vet technician, A+Examples below for those that want to read on:DR. POLLARD called us 3x during Duke’s surgery, keeping in the loop and partnering with us when a situation arose. Then followed up the next 2 days to see how he was doing.We recently got a rescue puppy that must have been treated very poorly. Dr. Pollard spent considerable time with Luna, getting to see 1st hand some of the issues we are having. She then called us, explaining what she had done, what we would need to do, and then we made a plan of action for the next few months.JESSICA: she listened intently to our concerns, was extremely encouraging, relayed our concerns as we described [I could hear her typing notes, as we spoke] & followed through like she said she would...Dr. Pollard called us back the same day.Re B.Re B. ★★★★★ They have taken excellent care of our older Cocker. They are extremely responsive with requests for medication refills. Our dog is attended to by Dr. Callahan. We are super happy with the care he provides and his follow up. Two thumbs up to the front desk staff and the vet techs.Bill T.Bill T. ★★★★★ I will be forever grateful to the staff of Big Creek Animal Hospital for taking care of our beloved yellow lab, Reese over the past two years. Special thanks to Dr. Estes and Dr. Pollard for all of your love and support.Holly R.Holly R. ★★★★★ I recently moved to the area and my fur baby suddenly became ill. Are calling around my dog sitter recommended Big Creek animal Hospital. The moment Becca answered the phone and I explained what was going on. She immediately told me to drop him off. Within 30 minutes of him being dropped off, Dr. Estes contacted me and had a diagnosis for him. Very caring staff, they followed up the next day to check on him. A week later, he’s back walking and on the mend. Definitely will recommend Big Creek animal Hospital.Nicole S.Nicole S. ★★★★★ Dr. Lahoni is awesome!!Barbara C.Barbara C. ★★★★★ This is to the great people at Big Creek for always taking care of our two 4 legged family members!Jim S.Jim S. ★★★★★ We were there for a grooming. My dogs had worked with a groomer that had moved to Big Creek and we gave it a try. It was terrific. Beautiful facility, great staff, caring people...wonderful. The girls were pampered and all their needs met in a very short time. The cuts and clean were excellent and the girls did not suffer any distress. I really appreciate the work and care of Jillian, the groomer, and I am thankful for her efforts! She’s a keeper.Terry B.Terry B. ★★★★★ I originally chose Big Creek because of their proximity to our house. One of our dogs has bad anxiety riding in the car so it's best for everyone involved to stay close to home. We've never had a bad experience here. The staff are always very friendly and they always call the day after to follow up and check on our girls to make sure they are doing okay. The facility itself is clean and well kept. I love the coffee machine and the other resident animals. I can't honestly speak to the prices compared to nearby vets, but it's very comparable to our previous vet. Again, the pricing was less important than proximity.Kim D.Kim D. ★★★★★ Our new puppy fell through the spaces in the stair bannister hit the floor below and was knocked unconscious. If it wasn't for this veterinarian clinic, he probably wouldn't be alive today. They even waived the cost of the drug that reduced the swelling in his brain and saved his life. I will be moving all my pets to Big Creek Animal Hospital this year.Having real weekend hours means I can count on them in an emergency unlike my old vet that closes at noon on Saturday and is closed on Sunday.Dan B.Dan B. ★★★★★ The most compassionate and caring group of people I’ve ever come across. My dogs get so excited every time they realize they’re going here. Even when they don’t have appointments available they always find time to work my babies in, which means that I don’t have to miss work and I know they’re being taken care of!Karen M.Karen M. ★★★★★ Very caring staff who demonstrate concern for their patients.Stephen W.Stephen W. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff.Adam M.Adam M. ★★★★★ Excellent Service. I brought our very sick dog to them on a Sunday. Dr. Estes helped, even though we did not have an appointment. She stabilized our girl so that the necessary tests could be done and then helped set us up with a facility for 24 hr care that was needed.Stefan B.Stefan B. ★★★★★ Dr Estes is fantastic! She is compassionate and truly cares about her patients...both pet and parent.Sadie C.Sadie C. ★★★★★ We brought our dog, who is not a patient, in unexpectedly last week. She was shaking showing signs that she was in pain. I called her primary and three other local vets and none of them could take her in immediately. When I called Big Creek, the receptionist, Keri, who answered was very compassionate and made sure we could drop our dog off to be seen in between appointments. Throughout the day we worked with Dr. Estes and although we were given a not so great prognosis, the standard of care that was given to our dog was and continues to be excellent. Everyone was extremely compassionate, sympathetic, informative and patient with us. We are so incredibly grateful and glad we found you all. Thank you all.Abby A.Abby A. ★★★★★ Friendly staff. Updated and clean building tooJudson P.Judson P. ★★★★★ Always a great experience. Big Creek on Post Rd always has friendly staff. They take great care of our dog and this week they looked at our bunny!Kelly H.Kelly H. ★★★★★ This place is great. Saw our dog for an evaluation and shots within 30 minutes of calling them. This is one of the only places around open on a Sunday and they made room to help us and our dog out while they were busy. They answered all of our questions and helped explain everything clearly to us. Very thankful and would highly recommend them. We plan on making this our permanent vet after our visit today!ctobias422ctobias422 ★★★★★ I called around looking for a new veterinarian for about a week. From the first hello, the concern for my concerns, to the care given, this is hands down the best Animal Hospital in Forsyth! My pets are my family and everyone here gets that!Cathy M.Cathy M. ★★★★★ Wonderful, caring, experience staff! Dr. Mise is without equal. He saved our dog's life when another hospital couldn't diagnose the problem. I would trust this facility under any circumstances.Chris C.Chris C. ★★★★☆ Clean facility and good staff. Doctors, front office personnel, technicians are all courteas and takes a good care of my dog.Venkata Ramana R.Venkata Ramana R. ★★★★☆ A bit expensive but the people are niceKathryn H.Kathryn H. ★★★★☆ Very friendly staffRegina D.Regina D. ★★★★☆ Was able to see our sick puppy and diagnose her quickly!Carol W.Carol W. ★★★★☆ People that careNick H.Nick H. ★★★★☆ Always.....Roger P.Roger P.js_loader

20 year satisfied customer. My current senior canine American for the most part likes to come in for K laser therapy. The doctors and staff are all compassionate, professional, and as good with owners as they are with patients. I appreciate the times the office has made follow up calls on my pet’s health.
