I moved across town and tried several other Vets that were closer, but none compared.

It was 5:30 in the afternoon and I call Christian Bolz and he said to bring her on to the office (usually this time so close to closing, other vets will say to take to the Emergency Vet).

We feel lucky to have been taken on as clients and Ingrid&Sammy are lucky to be new patients.karen P.karen P. ★★★★★ Myrtle Grove has the best team of expert veterinarians in Wilmington, NC!!! I took my kitty in for what I thought was just going to be a rabies shot and Dr. Peat noticed he was not breathing good. After taking an X-ray she saw that something was surrounding his heart and lungs. She was proactive and had their whole team of doctors review the X-rays. Dr Houlihan was trained on a Global Scan Test and was able to determine that it was fluid vs a mass. We came home with meds for congestive heart failure and overnight my kitty is feeling 100% better. As a Team they were able to buy him and I some more time together and make him comfortable ♥️Thank you Myrtle Grove Animal Hospital for showing me that you all really care and Dr Peat for going the extra mile making multiple calls to check on my baby and come up with a solution.I HIGHLY recommend this team of experts to anyone!!!!👍Shari H.Shari H. ★★★★★ After eight years, MGAH continues with the most competent veterinarians and efficient support staff in Wilmington!Pat Brooks E.Pat Brooks E. ★★★★★ This is Q-tip my new rescue kitten, took him to Dr. Bolz for his first visit and they were so wonderful with him.

Truly care about the welfare of the pets and put in the time to prove it.Meagan B.Meagan B. ★★★★★ I can’t explain how happy I was after taking my dog there! I came from a bad experience with a vet, and I was kind of biased how my experience was going to be. After reading recommendations of this vet, and how they treat reactive dogs, I had to give it a go. They had several treats for my dog, they were so patience, they explained me things about her diet, and they listened to me (thing that didn’t happened before). If you have a reactive dog, I really recommend to take your dog there, there is scale there so your dog doesn’t need to move without you, they let you know if there are other dogs on the reception. It was absolutely the best experience I have ever had. So happy that I can offer to my dog a good vet experience.Daniella R.Daniella R. ★★★★★ Cali - my cat has now been a patient of Myrtle Grove Animal Hospital for 3 years! They all are so nice every time we have been in and this last visit with the automated system somehow it had that we were not on the schedule and even though they were busy they worked Cali back in and got her taken care of! I appreciated it so much as my NHC pet tax/license was due!Kari C.Kari C. ★★★★★ I just wanted to say how wonderful this clinic is. I called to just see if they recommended a good dog food for weight management for my dog and they actually gave me a sample bag of the food. It was huge they didn’t have to do that , but they did. They are so kind and friendly. Even when your dogs can get excited and jump. I am so Thankful they took such good care of my fur babies! Allllll threeRachelle K.Rachelle K. ★★★★★ The staff is amazing here. My dog is very anxious and needs lots of extra care and support during her exams.

She's the best!Teresa P.Teresa P. ★★★★★ Awesome Vet!Kris C.Kris C. ★★★★★ We absolutely love this office. We've seen every doctor and have enjoyed them all but our regular go-to is Dr. Houlihan. He knows our dogs well and the quality of our visits is exceptional.Danielle C.Danielle C. ★★★★★ After having a bad experience with a previous vet, I was scared to try any new vets around the area. Someone actually recommended this vet to me after taking in a neglected puppy and this is now the vet I take all my pets to. Dr. Cozart has been the best, making sure all my questions are answered, helping with simple tips, and overall you can tell she genuinely enjoys what she does.

Every Vet and every employee are top notch.Betsy M.Betsy M. ★★★★★ We recently moved to Wilmington a few weeks ago. Our Maltese had a bump on her back that blew up like a red balloon!

This office is very organized and professional! The staff were all so kind and amazing. The best vet and office on the planet!MargaretMargaret ★★★★★ Fantastic vet!!

They are very friendly and I feel like my pets are getting fantastic care from any of the doctors that they see.NECA J.NECA J. ★★★★★ 1st time visiting with my baby and everyone was so sweet and attentive. They listened to what my concern was about but also made my baby feel comfortable while checking him over. Dr Houlihan explained all the findings and concern about the age and murmur my baby has and suggested about me thinking about going on with anesthesia but also suggested getting bloodwork done to see if my babys levels were good to go so I can make my decision. Bloodwork came back good, worried about the murmur but I did schedule the procedure necause my baby is a champ and I know he will be just fine with Dr Houlihan, thats how comfortable I feel!!!Evelyn L.Evelyn L. ★★★★★ Great people there who take excellent care of your pets! Welcome them!🐾🐾😊Susan L.Susan L. ★★★★★ Great care of the animalsElizabeth C.Elizabeth C. ★★★★★ All the drs and techs are amazing.

The staff at MGAH are amazing. Dr. Daniel Houlihan (Dan) is amazing! We are great full to have him around for all our cat needs.Gregory H.Gregory H. ★★★★★ Our dog loves the place. Gets excited when we pull up and drags me to the door.Lee M.Lee M. ★★★★☆ We recently moved to Wilmington with 3 older cats and 1 dog. After reading reviews on different vets, I chose MGAH. There is construction going on in the building so a vet's assistant will come out to get your animal and the vet will come to your car after the visit to explain what they found. (There are phone calls also.) I felt that they did a comprehensive check up, although I did not chose to do all the blood tests, etc., but I did switch the cats to a different flea medication on their recommendation which is working great. One of my cats had a skin condition and they were able to figure that out. Also, there is a window first thing in the morning for animals that need to be seen asap. I used that and it was great to be able to get into see a vet that quickly.Susan K.Susan K.js_loader

Such a great place to take your loving pets I have been coming here for almost 10 years with my loving pets my little Roxie girl loves to come here to get her nails Dremeled and a bath she smells so pretty. The staff here, they are really awesome, they really care about your loved one and taking care of them. I love the curbside service that they offer now due to the Coronavirus. it would be great if they could, continue the curbside service after the coronavirus is lifted.

Sarah H.

Love our vet! Staff and doctors are all sweet. They make our appointments quick and they keep the wait time to a minimum, so I can get our anxious pup in and out!

Sarah K.

We had been loyal patients of another local practice for 10 years. Until recently we were always able to be seen within hours of a phone call. I understood with this Covid debacle, things would be different, but my baby’s skin allergies flared up and I had to wait a week before she could be seen, and then 3 days before I could get a refill on her prescriptions.(oh, and this was a Monday-Wednesday ordeal) I’m sorry, but in my humble opinion, this was totally unacceptable. So I called MGAH and within an hour and a half of my phone call, she was seen and treated! Thank you Dr Houlihan and staff!!!!!

Brenda M.

My Daughter was visiting & her dog was ill . We called on a Saturday at 10:30 & they agreed to fit her in as soon as we could get here . The staff was very professional & accommodating especially considering we were not existing patients . Dr Bolz was great & my Grand dog is doing just fine . I will recommend this practice to all my friends & will take my future pets here without hesitation .
