Default Where on this website can I find an actual recommendation for a veterinarian?

I am new at using this site and I'd like to find a compassionate veterinarian that is reasonably priced?
I have clicked around a bit but either only see advertisements or else I see other types of health care, not for my two little poodles.

Maybe I need to go outside the villages? Thank you for any recommendations you can share.

I am 100% satisfied with Buffalo Ridge. They are the only animal hospital open 24 by 7 with a vet always on site. They board and there is an on site groomer.
They are not the cheapest but I would not go any where else.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Huff in Leesburg. Village vets are OVER PRICED!
Example, cost of tooth removal in Villages $750, Dr. Huff, $256, great staff, not long wait and very friendly staff. Tell them Moses sent you!!!

We too used Dr. Huff -- far more reasonable.

My bridge partner is a retired vet. He’s subbed for most of the vets here, including Buffalo Ridge, Paws and The Villages Vet. There are are two he recommends. Dr. Valdez at Park Heights in Fruitland Park and Dr. Porter in Wildwood.

We also use Dr. Huff and we're thinking about bringing our new Pup to him once we find the one who needs us most. Almost there. Sorry.

I so agree and they try to sell up using your love for your pet and try to get you to feel guilty for not paying for overpriced and very iffy treatment. We have gone to three here and they all use the same methods.

Our beloved Samantha is gone several years ago, but boy was she expensive. Every visit to the vet was in $hundreds.

However, I have heard that the vet in Wildwood is excellent and very reasonably priced.

Animal Care Clinic of Wildwood. Dr. Timothy Porter. (352) 748-6348.

I had a lot of problems with the treatment given by Buffalo Ridge. If I needed an ER I would go to Leesburg animal ER.

Dr. Porter is by himself so you always see him. His office isn't fancy but he's a seasoned vet who has years of clinical experience. His staff are the same since I've been going to him unlike a lot of places. He will not try to do anything you don't need. He's very caring and compassionate.

I have sent many people to him and all have loved him.

He's in a strip mall in Wildwood where the post ofc. and Ace Hardware are.
