All of the vets are excellent and I have found them to be reasonable in their approach to treating my dogs and cats with their various issues. I have had experiences in the past with other vets who would try to alarm me - urging me to over-treat a health condition so that I would spend more money and unnecessarily stress my pet.

Great experienceJenny P.Jenny P. ★★★★★ After four years of no pets, we are once again using East Brainerd Animal Hospital for our new puppy. I am so pleased to see that their professional care and office standards remain at the highest level. Clients since 2012, we have always received great communication on-site and by phone, and their doctors are great at explaining each part of the pet's treatment. I have no hesitance in recommending this friendly veterinary office for any pet owner.Michael G.Michael G. ★★★★★ One word awesomeCathy G.Cathy G. ★★★★★ I have been going to East Brainerd Animal Hospital for four years. My Vet is Dr. Barb Jacobs, and she is first class! She is truly compassionate and educated about everything I needed to find out about, and she takes ALL THE TIME you need to get answers. She's thorough and makes you feel like she and her staff are family. The staff (front desk and techs) are a cut above the rest. The techs are so gentle and compassionate. When our 14-year-old Labrador Simon was diagnosed with diabetes and kidney failure he had to be on intravenous fluids twice a day. The techs trained me how to do this as I was very nervous. My yellow Lab is gone now, and we have a 12-week-old puppy who had his first visit this past week. Again, very good visit!! Here is one of the reasons why they are so good and compassionate. As I was checking out with my puppy Brody, a technician who helped me with Simon my yellow who is now gone, remembered my voice after not going there for six months and came out to see the new pup and immediately said she really missed Simon and the way he carried his leash in his mouth and came up and down the ramp to my car. I MEAN. . .HOW SPECIAL IS THAT FOR HER TO REMEMBER!!!!! The staff at East Brainerd Animal Hospital truly are the best and they are like family! 20++++Dr. L. A. D.Dr. L. A. D. ★★★★★ Professional and caring staff! Easy scheduling for your fur baby. Dr. Neal Ligon is AWENSOME!S US U ★★★★★ We loved Dr. Revell, her assistant, and the front desk ladies! Everyone was so nice and I feel like my sweet dog got the best treatment by everyone there!

Highly recommendKaren H.Karen H. ★★★★★ EBAH is fantastic!! The staff are so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this veterinarian office for your four legged babies!!Leanne and Pete D.Leanne and Pete D. ★★★★★ East Brainerd Animal Hospital cared for several of our pets while living in Chattanooga. They provided caring service, reasonable prices, and helped us through some difficult times in the passing of our dogs. I would recommend them.Chris A.Chris A. ★★★★★ East Brainerd Animal Hospital went above and beyond to take great care of my injured Great Dane/Labrador. He slipped on my hardwood floor and severely injured his lower back region. Upon arrival, the entire team went out of there way to see Leo right away. Dr. Neal Ligon and his entire staff are amazingly compassionate and accommodating, even during the busiest of times.

I have had 2 cats that lived 20+ years.Ralph N.Ralph N. ★★★★★ Great vets and caring people. They really care about your pets.Lynne C.Lynne C. ★★★★★ East Brainerd Animal Hospital has been my “go to” for my dogs for almost 20 years. The doctors and staff have seen me through the highs (our Ellie’s pregnancies) and lows (dealing with our losses of Ellie and her mate, Chester). I still have one of Ellie’s puppies, Dexter, who is 17 years old. My pups have received excellent care through illnesses, surgeries, teeth cleanings, and when I have had to say goodbye and my heart hurt so, the doctors and staff were there to support me.

Would definitely recommend.❤️Cantiflas L.Cantiflas L. ★★★★★ The staff is excellent....best place for services and boardingKarol R.Karol R. ★★★★★ Dr. Huey and the staff gave excellent care to my older pet. I was well aware of the consequences of surgery at her age. She has recovered very well and I am grateful. Thank you.Michael D.Michael D. ★★★★★ Didn't go to E.B.A.H. but instead went to Brenda's Pet Grooming. I'm not going anywhere else to get my poodles hair cut. This is the best he has ever looked.

I had adopted a five month old puppy from a breeder, only to get home and immediately see signs of Parvo. I called everywhere close to me trying to get her in for a test, but nobody could fit me in (even though I was adamant about her probably having Parvo) they got me in right away, got her tested (yup, that’s what it was!) and started treatment right away. Now she is home and the playful, naughty puppy she should be!Everyone from the receptionist to the vet was compassionate and knowledgeable. Even though I have a regular vet for my other dogs, I will continue to use them for my dog’s care.Joseph L.Joseph L. ★★★★★ Great place to take your petBethani S.Bethani S. ★★★★★ I've used this vet for a couple years now. I've heard people complain online that they can't get their pet into their local vet for a few months but every time I've emailed east brainerd animal hospital in the middle of the night, panicking about my fur baby, they have me in the next day. I've never had to wait to know if my cat is ok. I found an abandoned dog at the mall one time and they scanned her for a chip and looked her over without an appointment. They genuinely care about animals. They gave me ideas for rescues and never charged me a dime. These vets care. Don't hesitate to take your babies here.Wayne S.Wayne S. ★★★★★ Been using E. Brainerd Animal Hosp.for 40 years. The absolute best.James P.James P. ★★★★★ They always take great care of my little yorkieLuther G.Luther G. ★★★★★ East Brainerd Animal Hospital is a great veterinarian office. Everyone is friendly and the veterinarians are wonderful.Eric B.Eric B. ★★★★★ Relaxed staff, reasonable prices, good veterinary careNikki V.Nikki V. ★★★★★ Dr. Jacobs is one of the best vets I have ever met. She takes time to learn about both the pet and the owner and legitimately cares about the pet. She devises a treatment plan with the pet owner, explaining things as you go and giving you several options. She truly looks at the whole picture. She was with me and my dog, Penny, over the course of her two-year end-of-life, and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else in the world with us as we navigated the end. She is knowledgeable, kind, funny, and just a great person and vet. I can't recommend her highly enough!Joe L.Joe L. ★★★★★ A great place and they have always been compassionate and professional with my puppy!Joan H.Joan H. ★★★★★ Dr. Carter and Dr. Ligdon are the best.
