I am so grateful for everything Dr. Abraham and the rest of the staff did for Sanfur and my family last week. Not only did you all did everything possible for my beloved dog, you also took care of me! I cannot thank you enough.

Mabel Velásquez

I was impressed with the total care you took upon Tuxy. I will forever be grateful 🙂 you took the fishhook out from his nose that some abuser pierced him with. Good news is that it is a year later, he is sweet and loving and pretty much forgot about the incident. He was up and out within an hour. You all are our heroes!

Debbie Perez Gomez

To the staff at Knowles Snapper Creek
Especially Dr. Wenzl, Jan, Rachel & Lory...

Thank you so much for the kindness you expressed to my family during a difficult time. You treated us with the utmost respect and compassion. What we went through with Toby was the most difficult thing any of us has gone through since a death in the family 14 years ago. We were so broken and your staff made sure we had everything we needed. I take comfort in knowing we were in good hands and Toby had love through your staff in his final days.

Dr. Wenzl, the time and dedication you took with Toby's complex case was amazing. You made sure his nurse knew all he needed. You were thorough, took your time and made sure he had the best critical care plan. I cannot thank you enough for the care and love you showed him-and us. When my mom went to visit Toby the next day, she said you were so lovely and compassionate. I am forever in your debt.

Jan, I know you gave Toby lots of love while he was under your care. As I was leaving, you hugged me and I knew you understood my pain. I slept better that night knowing he was under your care. Thank you so much. You'll never knowmhow much it meant to me.

Rachel, the front desk client representative, was so comforting, warm and made me feel my dog would be well taken care of. She offered to give me updates whenever I needed and assured me she was only a phone call away. You were so kind and loving with my family. You are amazing at your job and it really shows. Thank you.

Lory, thank you for everything. You helped me get Toby in the car to get him home to spend his final hours with the rest of our family. You were kind and compassionate. Thank you so much. In that moment and forever, it meant the world to us. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you everyone for all that you did. Toby was a champ and will be forever missed. Thank you for helping us. We are forever in your debt.

Michelle Jara and Toby

Thank you Dr. Canabal for helping my Cocoa Puff in so many ways. You have been just wonderful with him.

I highly recommend this animal hospital to anyone. Dr. Wise, Dr. Abraham and Dr. Beg are amazing vets. All the technicians at this hospital are amazing with dogs, especially Carlos, Vlada and Laurie (these are not the only ones, but there are too many to mention). The new manager David is great. The girls at the front desk absolutely love my dogs and my shepherd Buddy loves to play ball with them. This is not the cheapest veterinary hospital by any means, but you never have to worry about the quality of care that your pet receives. If I had a difficult decision to make regarding my pets, I would definitely allow Dr. Wise to guide me.

Nancy Lyons

My dog Armani required ACL surgery not only for one but both his knees 8 months apart and the surgery was successful both times and Dr. Wise was exceptional. Vlada his assistant was also amazing. I know the cost is high but the service is also outstanding. They took care of my Armani with very caring hands and for this I am grateful!!

Barbara Marchante

The Staff and Doctors at Snapper Creek Knowels Animail Clinic are outstanding. They are compassionate, caring and my labradoodles love them.

Mercedes Tercilla- Ruby and Sophia

I would like to thank you for saving my dog last night. I spent 15+ yrs. In a very progressive interventional cardiology dept. at a local hospital. I cannot count the number of times I have both saved and lost lives at my very hands. But yesterday when I saw the toad in my dogs mouth, I panicked. Nothing I knew applied here. The only thing I did was scream at the frog and grab the dog. I knew my next move was to call an emergency vet. clinic. I called the one on Kendall Dr..& 117 Ave. I was immediately advised that the MINIMAL charge for Bofu toxicity was over $950.
II had only my debit card. I was really lost now. Than I remembered Knowels. I called and they quoted my less than half the previous clinic price. We were on our way to Knowles when he started getting tachicardic and spacey. He was sliding into shock. The second I got inside the lobby the staff at the desk called for emergency help. He was out of my arms in moments and getting treatment. He received a higher cardiac toxin dose, only some neurotoxin. They stabilized and kept him over night. He's home again, and on a leash till winter.
I was so very impressed with the swift and efficient care Coco received while in your care. I will be forever grateful to all of you. Your compassion was sincere. Your professionalism impressive. Thanks again. Lucero and Coco Escobar

Lucero Escobar- Coco

Knowles Animal Clinic has been a vital part of my pet family care since I was 5 years old. They have provided excellent care for all my pets through these past 60 odd years. The doctors and their staff love animals and love your pets throughout their stays. The doctors provide forthright (positive or negative) information regarding my pet's health plan of care. That information allows me to make the right choices. Ensuring dignity and a quality life for my pet family is very, very important to me. I love, love my pet family and I give the best I can in return for their unconditional love.

Karen Quintero

Recently, my family experienced a very scary moment. A few days after adopting Candi (1 year-old dog)- she alerted us that our kitchen was engulfed in smoke. Immediately taking her to Knowles Animal Clinic (Snapper Creek) I didn’t know what to expect- I was in a crisis mode. I, in tears, brought Candi in seeking help to check for possible smoke inhalation and/or carbon monoxide. Although I was in a panic- all whom I came into contact with starting off with Keitha (front desk) and Taylor (providing care) remained calm yet compassionate. Lory Nelson (outreach manager/client relations specialist) was truly empathic as she listened to my story of my Hero Dog, which brought her to tears. Lori stayed with Candi and I through the entire process. She also shared a reassuring hug that put me at ease. Dr. Scola (providing treatment) kept me informed every step of the way-explaining the x-rays and test results with a gentle yet comforting voice. Her compassion is so clearly demonstrated in her words on Candi’s report “So Glad Candi came into your life and you into hers, you both rescued each other!” I knew then I had come to the right place. The Team at Knowles (Snapper Creek) demonstrated a high level of compassion and handled Candi and I with care and gentle hands, and tenderness. And for this I am forever grateful.

Silvia Reyes

My dog recently has surgery for a torn ACL and everyone at Knowles, from the girls at the front desk to Dr. Wise himself, were so very attentive and understanding to Coco and to me. They addressed all my concerns and kept me informed of everything that transpired during the day of the surgery. I am truly thankful to all of the staff at Knowles for the care shown to Coco.

Iliana Arcada

My dog came in with my 2 year old Beagle with a heat stroke and they took her out of our arms before we could finish our sentence. The doctors and techs were very gentle with my dog who had gotten really scared and snappy. They took the time to explain the cost of all they had to do to my dog and explain all that they were doing as well. All the prices seemed very reasonable and it turned out to be a lot cheaper than I thought it would be for her to come in emergency, all medications, all procedures, and be hospitalized for 4 days and 3 nights (approx 1300 for everything that was ever done or provided for her). They had her bathed and made sure they explained her medications regimen and sent home printed instructions as well. After I brought her home I had some questions and they were very willing to answer all my questions. I am very grateful for Knowles and Dr. Canabal, they saved my baby.

Rebecca Borrego

While I did have to wait quite a bit of time due to emergencies, the service is excellent, and Dr. Wenzl is AMAZING!

Joselyn Perez

Good morning
Mimi had a very good solid bowel movement this morning two rocks one distinctly large 1 distinctly small and in the front end of the bm this kind of sandy stuff.
I will continue to monitor her but we know for certain that she's cleared at least two rocks and she is acting as though nothing ever happened.
I cannot thank you all enough.
Every person I dealt with was professional and warm and kind without being patronizing.
In all my years I have never seen any business on the inside and outside with so many top notch people working.
I will tell everybody I meet and I meet a lot of people because of this her, I will tell them about your clinic.
Thank you so much
Love from Mimi and Robert

Mimi and Robert

Thank Dr. Pereira for all the years of caring for my pets as well as all the team at Knowles.

A. Morrell

I just want to let you know that we have a Dog (13 years old), half Pit bull, half German Shepard. We Have lived in Jacksonville, Fla for over 15 years and regret it. We have NOT found a Vet that is as good as you guys!!! It is amazing that this town lacks such great service. They do not seem to know what is wrong with our Dog. We had several dogs in Miami and ALWAYS used Knowles Animal Clinic. Sincerely, Randy and Alcia BIrd

Randy and Alicia Bird

Dr. Abraham and folks at Knowles Animal Clinics:

Sadly, I must tell you that E.P. Kotkata died yesterday afternoon. He acted like a teen aged cat after returning from your clinic last week; and then he became listless and sickly the day before yesterday. Sylvia found him on the living room floor upon returning from work.

E.P. Kotkata (“the cat” in Bulgarian) was a good, gentle and faithful friend to Sylvia and me. We will miss him. We are grateful that we had some 15 or 17 years to spend together. He added warmth, humor, companionship, and a healthy sense of cat-anarchy to our lives.

Thank you Dr. Abraham and the staff at Knowles for your caring and expert efforts. It was a true pleasure dealing with you. Over the years we have "shopped around” visiting various doctors with sick cats and one dog. Somehow I felt that we had found a veterinarian “home” with you all. One day a kitten will wander into our lives and then, I will look forward to seeing you for its first set of vaccinations. Until then I wish you well.

Again, our sincere gratitude,

Lucian E. Ferster

This was my first time at Knowles and it was quite an experience.
I am so grateful that they took extraordinary care of my pet in this
stressful moment. Dr Pereira is an outstanding skilled practitioner, very
knowledgeable, compassionate, caring, and understanding.
The nurses, staff and assistants were also very helpful, courteous, and caring
I wholeheartedly recommend Knowles as a great animal hospital.
Thank you so much everyone for all your assistance

Marta Prohia

We've (my father and I) been clients of Knowles since 1973 when we moved to Miami with five Skye Terriers, all showdogs. Dr. Jack Knowles was recommended by our vet in Oyster Bay, they both were alumni of the University of Pennsylvania's School of Veterinary Medicine, one of the top two vet schools in the US. Dr. Jack died some years ago but his daughter Jane-Ann Wise and son-in-law Dr. David Wise continue the excellent service that we have grown accustomed to. The team that they lead are competent and wonderfully caring people. My current dog is a 13 year old Norfolk Terrier who remains healthy because of the great care she receives at Knowles.

Robert Flanders

I would NOT take my dog anywhere else if it's not here to Knowles Animal Clinic. BEST service that you can get for yourself and for your pet. Very family orientated! My dog and myself feel like at home everytime we come here. The techs and front desk girls are amazing. Since I got my dog I was recommended to put my dog with Dr.Canino, best decision I've ever done. My dog as a puppy when I got her was full of worms and had a skin disease. I brought her here to Dr. Canino and he treated her within 3 days all the worms were dead and gone! & her skin was healthy as well! I don't trust my dog with anyone else but Knowles Animal Clinic. Best veterinary in Miami! Want to get the treatment you and your pet deserves? Come here, guaranteed!

Ashley Dabalsa

i love the team at Knowles. they have cared for my dogs since i moved to miami 12 years ago. they are knowledgeable, professional and dedicated, but more than anything, they truly care for the animals in their clinics. what a wonderful place for my pets! i am so happy to have Knowles in miami and recommend them 1000%.

Susan Linning

Dr. David Wise has meant the world to us, our family pets and demo dogs for thirty years now. We always refer our clients and we appreciate Knowles caring staff as well. Thanks guys, and keep up the good work! Carol, Juan and Melissa Vega of West Point K-9 Academy.

Hi I am a 9 year old AKC registered Female Rat Terrier last month my Owner was giving me some much loved belly rubs and felt a lump I suffer from Addisons Disease and for the past 4 years I get a monthly shot of percortin so at my next visit My owner showed it to the Vet at Knowles which said I needed a mastectomy to remove the tumor so 3 weeks ago I had it removed and the biopsy came in I had a low grade carcinoma of the mammary chain I am feeling better was a rough recovery really felt a lot of pain for the first week I am here to spread the word about canine mammary tumors. It happened to me and if not for my constant belly rubs my owner may not of felt it at such an early stage. Thanks Dr Wenzel I will see you hopefully tomorrow when I get my monthly shot I am all healed and getting lots of belly rubs I so missed them as I was healing ♥

Aiko Hoshi

Dr. Emily Abraham is an extraordinary practitioner, extremely knowledgeable and profoundly compassionate both with my Boys and with me. Knowing she is in charge of my babies' care gives me complete peace of mind. I will never be able to thank her adequately for all she has done for us.

I have read a lot of the feedback posted here and can agree to a point, but like all, I'm entitled to my opinion. My family and I have been clients of both Knowles Central and Snapper Creek offices for over tens years now. My family consist of two households, one with large dogs and one with small. About 11 years or so ago we were here visiting our Miami home when one of the larger dogs suffered a leg injury. Not knowing of many people or reputable vets in the area I needed to research quickly and came across Knowles. I cannot recall initial Dr at that time but remembered Dr Wise had performed that orthopedic surgery that was needed. Our follow up appointment was with Dr Canino, who we could have not met a more compassionate Dr. After relocating a few years later. We all continued to see Dr Canino who had the best "pet side" manner any of us have scene coming from the NYC/Northern New Jersey area Drs we have dealt with in the past. Dr Canino is all heart with the best means for your loving family member whether it be a dog or cat. Dr Canino talks to you and "understands". There are also the not good times when you have to let your loved one go where Dr Canino is by your side. I also have to speak of Dr Wenzl of the Snapper Creek office. I had come aquatinted with Dr Wenzel when two of our large males had somewhat of a scuffle. Dr Wenzl was so attentive in a quick manner and performed what was needed of a surgical procedure right away. We follow up appointments after that as we'll with Dr Wenzl where my family member was able to meet her. "A true Gem, Diamond in the sky as put" by. Dr Wenzl gets down on the floor, talks with your loved ones, and asks what's wrong to them.
Just like any Dr. Office you wait, you have good and bad, but these are two Drs I would wait and see for when it comes to my dog or cat. I believe Dr Wise reads all from here and I hope that you do. You have two of the best Drs in south FL

Paul M.

I was referred to Dr. Canino and Dr. Wise through a good friend of mine after my mini labradoodle puppy fractured her tibia. I had gone to see another orthopedic specialist at the recommendation of my vet at Miami Veterinary Specialist and left feeling confused and worried with an estimate of $3000. The doctor there was pressuring me to have my pet in surgery and told me I needed to decide that same day or he would not do it. What a different and much better experience I had at Knowles! Dr. Wise's staff did everything they could to squeeze me in to see him. Dr Canino stopped by even after a 13 hour night shift to check on Lala. The staff was attentive and the tech was so sweet to Lala. I left feeling very informed and knowing she's in good hands with people who really care. Dr. Wise ended up not recommending surgery and was very honest about all our options. I am very thankful to him, Dr. Canino, and their staff. Lala has found a new vet for life!

Debby Zabludowski

Merry Xmas to all at Knowles 27th Avenue. By far the BEST CLINIC EVER. Dr. Abraham is the best doctor that i have met to date, in every aspect. Also Kim, Miti, Julia, Miranda, Esteph and the rest of the CSR's. Best wishes to all.

Alex Meliciano

Snapper Creek is such a wonderful animal clinic! Everyone has been so wonderful and they are always very kind and generous. The doctors are very attentive. So wonderful to have this kind of facility open 24 hours.

Michelle M.

The BEST place to go for your pets care. I have been taking my cats here for about 7 years and they have always been very helpful and caring.

Nuria R.

We have been to Knowles Snapper Creek several times over the last year with our dog Chip. Mostly routine check ups and shots, but we have had a crisis or two as well. The service has always been extraordinary! Knowles is open 24 hours a day, every day. The staff is amazing and attentive. The facility is clean and well equipped. We have been to other vet offices over the years and although I am sure they think they are fine, they just don't match up to Knowles. You may find more or less expensive offices, but you won't find a more caring, loving, passionate and compassionate vet practice than Knowles.

Kevin S.

It's over 35 years now that Knowles Snapper Creek has cared for our animals and I have come to realize that the Clinic not only has the most caring and knowledgeable Vets and state of the art equipment but they have provided us with more than just service and compassion, they have provided peace of mind and the security of knowing that they are there 24 hours a day, every day. Things happen, pets get sick not just during the day but at night too. Knowles Vets are there all of the time.
I believe it is always best to have a relationship with a 24 hour Veterinary Clinic . Knowles 24 Hour Clinics are always there for us. When there is a need to take one of our little family members for a regular check up they are there.When and If that emergency that has unexpectedly occurred in the wee hours of the night they are there for our furry families too.. I wonder what I would do without them?
Does your regular Veterinary Clinic provide you with peace of mind? Can you reach them in an emergency?

Sue N.

We have had issues with several of our dogs in the month of July and when it was time for one of my dogs to move on, we were going to go to another emergency clinic but then someone suggested Knowles. I knew that the last thing I wanted was for my dog to pass away at the other clinic because the personnel is awful. When we arrived at Knowles Snapper Creek , my husband went in to fill out the paper work and in the middle of that my dog was passing away with me in the car. The doctor came out and helped us. The staff and vet at this clinic were amazing. They were sympathetic and so accommodating that in the end I will always be grateful to them. My dog did die that night but I could have not asked for more. She passed away surrounded by her loved ones and very warm and loving strangers. We were heartbroken but am so appreciative to them.

Melissa C.

KNOWLES SNAPPER CREEK IS A LIFE SAVER! this clinic is amazing. they are open 24 hours. the service is great. they treat your pet with great care its 100% worth it since, they are trying to save your pets life. my family and i rushed my dog arthur to the clinic one night that he got a seizure and they rushed him in and ran a bunch of test on him. we all waited in stress until the doctor came out and gave us the news he was going to be okay but, we had to leave him for 24 hours which killed us. Arthur is now nice and health! thank god!

Diana A.

I'm writing this review, because I honestly felt I needed to. First of all, my dog and cat's vet is Dr.Gomara/Dr. Cruz, who are excellent and dedicated vets., however, this time around my dog needed a consult with an orthopedic vet to see if my dog would need surgery in his back leg, I made sure to ask my vet is this clinic they were referring me to was as good and honest as they were. Although he assured me they were very conscientious, I went and did my own research. Had I gone by all the bad reviews there are here, I would have not taken my dog there, but I said to myself let me just go and if I don't get a good vibe a I will get a second opinion.

I gotta say, the staff was very professional and helping, Dr. Canabal was very nice and thorough with the medical examination and diagnosis, he was honest about the urgency of the surgery, this people were not pushy at all, before they even did the x-rays they showed me what the costs were going to be, and I thought they were reasonable prices for being x-rays.

So I don't know how true are these other negative reviews, I cannot judge for personal experience because overall they gave me a really good impression. When I do decide to do the surgery I will be bringing my dog here and if I have a negative experience I will let you know if I was wrong, but I doubt it. I felt very comfortable here and will be coming back if needed.

P.S: while I was there I asked two of the people waiting there what was their experience with the clinic and both seemed to be pretty satisfied with the level of care and customer service received here, although a bit pricey they were very good at their job.

Good luck to everyone.

We rushed my 14 year old Lab mix to the central location one night in March of 2014 fearing the worst. She had not been eating much and she had been sneezing a lot, occasionally with some blood. I took her to her regular vet but they wanted us to spend an inordinate amount of money on an MRI to make a diagnosis. I just presumed the worst (because of her age) and asked that instead they provide her with treatment that would improve her. She was not improving and continued to lose weight refusing to eat the special diet food the vet had recommended. Unexpectedly one night she had a massive nose-bleed. It was so bad all I could do was think of rushing her to a Vet ER to STOP the bleeding. Knowles was the only place open 24/7 near my home. We rushed in soaked in blood with Nubie (my 14 yr old dog). I thought it was all over. The doctor on duty that nigh t was Dr. Emily Abraham. Within seconds of coming through the door the staff allowed me to take her back into the examining rooms. I told her I thought she might have cancer but was uncertain and that this nosebleed was a new symptom. She asked us to wait outside and 20 minutes later she came to get me. Nubie was lying calmly on the examining table with two assistants soothing her. The bleeding had stopped. She wagged her tail when I came in. She was below her normal weight, lethargic, and actually looked close to the end. The Dr. said I had to make a choice, either to treat her to see if she could recover or if not, then we needed to put her to sleep. I blurted out "Treat her"!, before I knew what I was saying. Well they kept her overnight and the next day I met Dr. Wise. He brought me in, brought Nubie out at the end of a leash and sat me down. He told me she indeed probably had cancer and that there really was only one way to treatment that was viable, and that it would probably not cure her but he felt she could recover enough to enjoy a good life for another year. He said if not, well then the best thing to do was to let her go. I've had Nubie since I rescued her as a 9 week old street puppy following her her sick old mange covered momma dog around the neighborhood. She had been my companion for 14 years loyal and true. I suddenly felt I owed her some good times for being my alarm clock in the morning, greeting me when I came home, jumping in bed with me when I was lonely, and not leaving my side the night my own mom passed away. I said do what you can Doc. Well Dr. Wise is our miracle worker. Yes Nubie has "nasal cavity carcinoma", and he did not need an MRI to conclude that. The combination of meds he used worked miraculously. Nubie began to eat again, greet me at the door, paly with her toys, go for long walks again. She has made an incredible 100% recovery. Every time we go see Dr. to check on that nasty tumor she actually relaxes and lets him check her out all over with any indication of annoyance. I forgot to mention Nubie was a bit of a snapper. She growls at almost any stranger that tries to touch her without her checking them out first. Not with Dr. Wise or his assistant. I was amazed, am amazed, at the work they do at Knowles. I feel extremely fortunate that Dr. Wise is her primary Vet. He is one special guy. He truly makes me feel like he knows what that dog means to me. I'm not very emotional actually, and am pretty cool in most situations. But I had to same something about this wonderful place and the top notch people that work there. Dr. Wise is not just a vet; he is a gentleman, a scholar, a friend, and a miracle worker! Nubie is back 100%. I had asked him if, back in March if he could keep her going till Christmas. Well she is still here. Now I take her on special trips to her favorite places almost every weekend. The Beach, the gettys, to visit one of her siblings that also was rescued. I put the top down on my car and let her sit in the passenger seat, wind blowing as she points he snout straight at the breeze. I've been able to thank her over and over since then. Heck the only thing I still haven't let her have is chocolate. Maybe on her last day, when we have to come to that. Fro now Thank You Dr. Wise and all your wonderful staff for helping me return the Love in heapfulls to my faithful companion, Nubie. You are the best and my greatest wish is that God rewards you as often as you help others and that he keeps you healthy and going strong, for all of us that love our pets, for as long as you wish to remain of service and beyond. Muchas Gracias!

By far, the best clinic around. Dr. Wise has been treating my German Shepherd/Lab rescue for lymphoma for about 6 months now. I still have my perfectly happy girl because of him and the incredible staff at Knowles who spoil her rotten and make her weekly visits exciting! His method of treatment is aggressive but gentle so that she is HERSELF every precious second I get to spend with her. Dr. Abraham trusted me to be Bailey-Abraham's mom. He's a perfect 8-week-old fireball. Now, because of Knowles, my life is infinitely richer with TWO amazing souls I get to call my own. I can never thank this team enough for making my little family happy and whole!

It was labor day weekend - our Italian Greyhound tumbles, lands wrong and breaks her paw. We had no idea what to do but google animal hospital and found Knowles. The person who answered my hysterical call was incredibly kind and understood every word I said between my crying and yelling. The staff and Dr. Linda Wendland (London's new vet as of yesterday) were incredibly sweet and treated London better than a human patient at a regular hospital. London has an emergency consult with Dr. Wise tomorrow in order to determine if her fracture requires surgery. She has a lengthy recovery ahead of her but has parents who adore her and a great team of doctors to help her along. Thank you for being there for us! -London's family

Lillie LOVES Dr. Abraham. She always gets first rate treatment!

Dr. Pereira is the greatest! My Loki is always taken care of and the clinic is open pretty late and has a 24 hour emergency staff as well. Very convenient even if it is a bit of a drive

My Yorkie was seen at Knowles animal clinic last summer. He arrived in respiratory and cardiac arrest after choking on a piece of steak. The medical crew was able to dislodge the piece of steak and resuscitate him after much effort. After being in a coma, he gradually recovered his ability to hold himself up, eat, drink and walk. Over the last few months he has also recovered most of his eye sight. Dr. Canaval saw my Yorkie BJ. Although the situation seemed hopeless, Dr. Canaval always believed in BJ's recovery. That helped me through moments that seemed hopeless. The staff here was also very nurturing, understanding and accommodating. They would let me and my friend come visit BJ at any time of the day or night. After a couple of weeks of being at Knowles, BJ was well enough to come home. I know this miracle was possible not only due to the expertise of the vets and techs at Knowles, but also in the faith and love they had with BJ. I have no way of thanking everyone there for saving his life. Also, for all that was done the price was extremely reasonable.

Dr. Wise has been taking care of my animals since 1996, and there is no other docter I trust more than him. His knowledge and loving care of animals goes beyond what is expected. And during the hard times when we had to say good bye to one of our babies, he is always there to give us comfort and kind words of support. His assistants Valda and Carlos, are beyond awesome! All my fur babies seem to know they are in safe hands with them. All the staff at the front and chekout counters have always been wonderful and very friendly.

This is to express my most sincere appreciation and thanks to Dr. Wi...se for all he and his wonderful staff did for Diesel during these last 10 months. Firstly, trying to save his only good eye, and lastly, for the immensely compassionate care yesterday when I brought Diesel in for what turned out to be his last visit. Dr. Wise was in between surgeries but when he was told Diesel and I were waiting to see him, Dr. Wise came out and did everything he could to try and extend Diesel's life. I lost track of the number of visits I have made since May of last year, but it's around 15. A special thanks and hug to Vlada for helping me through this very difficult time. It's been just 24 hours and I still miss Diesel but I can sleep peacefully knowing all the loving care that he received. I also thank the tech, Carlos, for all his assistance and service. The young ladies at the reception desk knew me and Diesel whenever we came in and always greeted us when arriving and upon exiting. May God continue to bless all of you as you continue to provide care to all the pets and owners you serve. Jose Fernandez A very grateful and appreciative owner

Jose P Fernandez- Diesel

I just wanted to thank you guys for everything, on Tuesday we put our dog to sleep, he was one of your patients, the doctor, staff and experience on such a difficult day for my husband and I were exceptional, we weren't rushed and even after they put Lou to sleep they let us spend more time with him, they comforted us when we couldn't bare with the thought that he was gone forever, even when we were walking out they let us know that it was the best thing we could've done for him as he was suffering. Thank you again for helping him all these years and for being so amazing till the very end

Kristine and Kenny Alvarez

I have to say that a little over a month and a half ago I brought my 25 year old cat in to be put to sleep your staff was gentle and caring and compassionate i can not tell you what comfort that was in such a terriblbe time thank you and may god bless you all

I have had this review pending for quite some time now . I'm the happy owner of 3 beautiful schnauzers , unfurtunately a few months back I found myself having to take Benjy my male on to yhe after hour clinic for knowles after he had been almost killed by two pitbulls , long story short I most really command and recognize knowles staff , yes you might wait on hold longer than the usual before the vet comes to the line , yes receptionists might not be the quickest to get to your call or return call but always very attentive and they try to get to everyone as soon as they can . Now Dr Carlos Canino left a different impression on us , you could tell he loves what he does he cares about the dogs safety doesn't skip any steps to finally get to an unnecessary procedure just to charge you a ridiculous amount of money takes his time to explain things and it's extremelly knowledgeable , I will always be in debt for saving benjys life , I'm forever thank full to him and to knowles . I would never put my dogs in any other hands

We had to go to this hospital for an emergency. Although the folks here did not know us, I felt as though they took us right in and gave the best care possible for my boy. Thanks for everything the doctors, techs, and office people did for us. I can't explain how appreciative we are. Darwin, Karen, and Ken.

Ken Keene

Thank you so much for treating us with such kindness. We miss her so.

Out of 4 cities (tallahassee, tampa, nyc, Miami), Dr.Wise is hands down the absolute best vet I have come across. He is kind, caring, intelligent, genuine, thoughtful, and cares so much about his patients and their owners. He is simply the best vet, and for those who bring up the high costs in your reviews, shame on you! Please be sure to provide some context to such claims. Dr wise is fair and honest, and never charges extra for follow up visits, phone consultations, etc. Moreover, he will see your pet without any advance notice which (in my book) is PRICELESS. I advise anyone in search of a vet to make an appointment with him because you'll miss out on the kindest (and most intelligent) vet that the city has to offer. I'm leaving this city and hope that I find a vet who cares about my precious Marley as much as he does

My favorite thing is understanding the owners needs and questions with respect, always. The pet always comes first and they treat my fur baby, Lilly, like family!

Susan Barrio Hernandez

The professionalism and team work.... I have not seen anything like it in my 35 years in corporate America .... Corporate America can learn a lot from the exceptional Customer Service... Not to mention the talent and training and dedication in saving our 4 legged family members #Bestinclass

James Grundy

Dr. David Wise...he's been my rock through many of my "four-legged" babies!

Carolin Phillips

We lost our dog a little over a week. The staff and veterinarians at Snapper Creek are the best. It was a very difficult moment and they were amazing. Amazing customer service and everyone was loving and compassionate.

Jorge Sanchez- Saul

5 starThe staff is awesome!!! They couldn't have been more knowledgeable about Ceasar even though there were so many other animals. They all seemed to genuinely love their jobs and the animals! All the animals I saw also seemed pretty happy considering they were at the "Drs" with broken bones and surgeries approaching or in recovery! Thank you so much for saving my cat!!!! He is doing so good!!!!

Steph Mansell

Dr. Abraham was excellent and very professional. I would definitely see her again. Great addition to your team. CSR were pleasant and welcoming

Heidy Guevara

Peter is the greatest tech

Jonathan was excellent. He took Sammy ( who was having a seizure )directly from my arms and said that he would take care of Sammy. It made me feel very secure . He was also excellent in giving updates .

Susan Malbin- Sammy

We would like to thank Knowles Staff for the very special love and care given to our Snoopy. We can no say enough of your team. Everyone is excellent. We are so grateful to Dr. Pereira and Dr. Abraham. They truly show their love for animals.
