We treat your pets like family
I don’t typically write posts like this, but this vet went and beyond for me last week. They are also a small business so I think it’s important to spread the word. Dr. Abbott at Vista Animal Hospital, just off of highway 7 is amazing! I have been searching for a good vet for 4 years and have tried numerous ones, and this place was by far the best. It is also all ran by women which I think is pretty great. I was a new client last week, and I am also a bit of a crazy dog mom. My dog started showing some neurological issues. Vista was able to get me in right away within the hour. They did a full exam - Dr. Abbott spent a ton of time going through her chart and checking everything out, blood work etc. She consulted two different neurologists and we went home with meds. Throughout the week my sweet girl got worse. Dr. Abbott gave me her cell and said to text her or call her with anything. I got more meds and more fluids, but in the end I had to make a really difficult decision. Dr. Abbott was honest with me about her prognosis (most likely brain tumor)- I say this because I feel like most vets out here want you to push and push and spend more money when it is not the humane thing to do. When it came time to make that decision Dr. Abbott came out to my house, after business hours, to help send her over the rainbow bridge. This was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. Dr. Abbott was so unbelievably compassionate, and caring, and just made this whole process just a bit easier. I honestly can’t say enough about how great she was. If you need a great vet, I highly highly recommend this place. They are also so much more reasonable than any other vet I’ve been to.read more
This was our first visit here and we are so impressed! Our dog is a little nervous and very scared of new places/people. Dr Bonnie and her staff were amazing with our girl Daisy. They were calm and patient with her. They never tried to force her to cooperate and really just took their time making sure she was comfortable. I just can’t say enough good things about our experience!!read more
Highly recommend! Outstanding professional team from the front desk (Jennifer) to the medical team (Dr Abbott).Thank You for your great care of Annie! ❤️read more

I can’t express how much I appreciate the experience I had today at your clinic. Everyone who I interacted with provided not only outstanding customer service but also a level of care to my cat that amazed me. Having just relocated from another state I am incredibly lucky to have found a place to entrust the care of my pets to - something I take very seriously. The atmosphere and care were first class and I am beyond grateful. Thank you!!read more

I’ve never been to such an amazing animal hospital! From the front desk staff to the techs to Dr. Abbot - they were all kind, caring and made me and my 8 week old puppy feel comfortable and welcomed while taking the time to answer any and all questions. Dr. Abbot took the extra step and offered a puppy paw print for a keepsake as well as showing us a bunch of different exercises to put our puppy through so that he is more successful as an adult with groomings etc. I cannot recommend this place enough!!!read more

I had an amazing experience at Vista Animal Hospital. They got my cat in the day after I called. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was no waiting around, Dr Abbott saw us right away. The environment is very welcoming and warm. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this animal hospital!read more
I have had nothing but wonderful experiences here. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and my babies.
I’m completely in love with Vista Animal Hospital and their staff!!!! I can’t express enough how different and incredible this place and all the people who work there are!!!! <— I’m not using the !’s lightly, they are intended. As anyone with a rescue dog, or a pet in general, can attest, the vet can be a very stressful place/time/situation. And finding one that deeply loves and openly embraces every creature who walks through their door, is extremely rare to find. I have two rescue dogs, Leo, a 9 month old Shiba-Inu mix and Koda, a 1 yr and a half old boxer, pitty, mutt mix. Today was Koda’s booster shot day and check-up. He’s never had a positive experience at the vets office and while he’s a big ol’ sweet Lumix, he’s emotionally very sensitive and he’s hyper aware of how people feel about him. Since I’ve promised to be his guardian, furever, finding a vet with whom he’s comfortable with is extremely important to me, and today, we found that it Dr. Carisa Rindal!!! She is AMAZING!!! The whole staff, from Jennifer, Kaitlyn, and Cait to Dr. Rindal, the four ladies we had the utmost pleasure in interacting with today, all welcomed both my boys, and myself with open arms and hearts, and made us all feel loved, welcomed and comfortable. From the exam tables being dog beds, the ability and use of half doors in the rooms so the dogs can still experience and feel connected to what’s going on around them, to the staff getting on the floor and genuinely enjoying snuggling with my boys and taking time to truly see each soul as their own unique being, I’m beyond impressed and grateful!! Never have any of us experienced such an enjoyable visit to the vets office. So while I could go on about all the little things they did that truly impressed me, this post would be much, much longer. Instead, I will say:I HIGHLY recommend this place and it’s warm, incredibly special staff!!!! Thank you all!!!read more
I've never had a good experience at the vet until we came to Vista Animal Hospital. We have a 13 year old, small breed dog who is terrified of going to the vet. The entire staff was so welcoming, gentle and patient with him. Dr. Rindal was incredibly thorough with us and our dog even licked her on her cheek (this is a HUGE deal as he is usually bolting for the door!!!). It is so nice to know we have a vet that we can take him to who we feel truly cares for him like her own. I would HIGHLY recommend this place!read more
A very welcoming staff. We felt so much love here.

I would love to give Dr Abbott and her staff more than 5 stars but it doesn't go any higher! This office is so warm and welcoming and you can feel how much they care about your pet. The entire staff is amazing and we feel very fortunate to know that they are our vet.read more
If I could give Vista Animal Hospital and Dr Bonnie Abbott 10 stars I would! I have never had a more caring and compassionate vet in all my years, dogs, and three states. She and her staff are absolutely wonderful. She is so personable, friendly, and knowledgeable, and from the minute you walk into her inviting clinic, you know you are in the right place with your precious furry friend. ❤️read more
Dynah and I LOVE Dr. Bonnie! Worth the drive from Boulder so we can keep seeing her.
Best vet my senior Lab had ever seen! He didn't even fight the nail trim! So greatful ��
We had a 'must treat NOW' situation happen to our dog on the Saturday of Graduation. Our regular vet was booked, the other Erie vet wouldn't get us off of hold. On a whim I did a google search and found Vista Animal hospital. The got us in within the hour. I could not have been more pleased with our experience. The office is designed for a no fear visit. The exam rooms are comfy with dog beds low to the ground. Not a tall, slippery, cold metal table. There was music in the room, half doors to keep the room from feeling enclosed and scary. Our dog hopped right up on the bed and remained relaxed. The staff was attentive and kind and knowledgeable. When he had to go to the back room, he was allowed to walk himself, no leashes or restraints. All the while he got spoiled with treats and scritches and the best thing of all - s chicken broth Popsicle. I would encourage you to check out this animal hospital. We found the whole experience to be worth while.read more
