Losing a pet is something you can't prepare for, but having you guys help us through it made more of a difference than you'll know. Thank you...Nick J.Nick J. ★★★★☆ 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. ★★★★☆ I have nothing but great things to say about the doctors and staff!Sarah LSarah Ljs_loader

Drs Debbie and Christian and staff are amazing! We showed up with our dog who was struck by a vehicle and they saved his life. Friendly heartfelt staff, compassion, and massive call to action in an urgent time sets them apart and is well deserving of 5 stars!

Thank you Myrtle Grove Animal Hospital!

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.

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!

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 .
