Wouldn't recommend this productBought three collars. Smell set off my asthma and one dog got itchy from it. Took forever for them to respond..Then they only offered 40% back not including tax or shipping. Or I could send them back, pay shipping again and possibly I'd get my money back. Don't know at this point if I'll get the 40% . The whole encounter made me not trust them. Wouldn't recommend.
RoguesAs a breeder used a local vet service but since Fur Life took over the business prices are just so excessive I can’t afford to go there and on principal refuse to in any case. Big franchise out to take over and run a muck with their exorbitant prices. Eg: Cytopoint was $120 now $195 in a little country town with no where to go they think this is ok!
McIvor Road, emergency, Easter holiday: thank you for being there!I have never experienced such an amazing vet. I don't know what her name was but this is the Easter long weekend and we had to do this as an emergency with a cat who had to be euthenaised. She was the best vet ever. Gave us lots of time with the (blind) animal, gave him a good sedative first and then it was time. She was kind, gentle, loving, and really really empathetic to us. I found reception first call which was thru to Eaglehawk a little bit nonchalant and more "efficient" than "sensitive" as she told me no one was on today and they w... Read moreere on "Easter break" (who gives a .... when you have to put an animal down) and the next receptionist was brusque too but I could understand why with everyone ringing them as the emergency vet today. Kudos to the vet though and thank you for taking us at such short notice. Bless you.
Money hungry franchiseI had been using the same practice for years, staff and vets were outstanding with my dogs. True country clinic with very realistic prices. Cared about my dogs and had my full trust. I’m am so dissatisfied since they sold out to the “Fur Life” group, prices have gone through the roof. Very unhappy and even though I love the vets there, I am looking at other clinics. As a breeder and showie I have a team of dogs and can spend a lot on care and pups ect so i need reliable affordable vet care.
The Perfect Vet for my DogAfter many, many years of our pets being treated by another Highton Vet. The last time we rang that Vet for our dog the service and timeframe offered was very disappointing. Needing our dog to be checked fairly quickly we rang Fur Life Vet and meet George.. Who was brilliant with our dog.. Harvey felt very comfortable with George's approach, touch and treatment which made us very happy. George explained extremely well what he was doing with Harvey and the treatment he needed as well as the outcomes which was great.. When we came to pay for this... Read more visit and treatment we felt the fee was very reasonable compared to what we we use to be charged by our previous Vet. Harvey has required further treatment and we have been back to George at Fur Life a couple more times. As with our first visit Gorge has been brilliant each time with Harvey. Would not take Harvey anywhere else..
Good Vet ServiceThe staff have been taking good care of my dog at Devoted. The vets and staff are professional, caring and experienced - I enjoy the experience and my dog enjoys the visits as well!
Licence to print moneyOur local vet was recently rebranded under this franchise. I was wary when I needed to have two of my dogs looked at recently. I needed a prescription for one dog & the other had ongoing/recurrent yeasty ear issues. No complaints about the care of the dogs but the overcharging is rampant. I get my dogs heart medication through an online vet medical supplies so I need a prescription from the vet. I can get for $100 what the vet charges $250 for. Furlife charge $50 to write you a prescription which doesn’t have any repeats! So each time I need a ... Read moreprescription (every 3 months) it’s an $85 consult fee plus $50 prescription fee. Plus the dog with the ear issues, even though it’s the same problem every time, they insist on charging $33 extra to look at it under a microscope. The ear drops they charged $50 for are $15 online. So their prescriptions are at least double the price you can source them for (legally) online. Then they have the nerve to have one of their staff approach you about their “membership” package at $500 to $600 per animal! Though the staff are caring, this is nothing but a money making scheme. Find a less money focussed vet.
Disappointed. Old Trusted practice replaced by franchiseA horrible example of the corporate monetisation of people’s love for their animals. Increased consultation fees and unbelievable drug prices with a production line attitude to vetinary care. Not happy
Very unprofessional business - lack of communicationStaff are rude and Very unprofessional, communication absolutely awful- if I could give a rating below 1 I would.
The business needs to look at the staff they are employing and re-evaluate whether or not they want customers to bring their animals to them. I was made feel awful and that my Dag was not a priority like all the others that were there that day.
I would not recommend taking your animals here.
Good work just bad businessI have been dealing with passionate vet care for many years, good vets and they do a quality job, but... and this is the but.. they don’t care about the animals.. it’s just about the bucks.. these people are ruthless and they cry about how much work they do then open a new store and close the other one down on weekends... but sell dimwits $150 bags of dog food.. I won’t be doing any more business with them ever again.. it a scam.. and even though they do good veterinary work.. I can drive to Melbourne and get three times the better service at half the price .. they’ll go under in a couple of years .. badly run business.. just like a lot of bendigo and central vic vets
Questions & Answers
How good does Furlife flea and tick collar work. thank you.
Honestly I’ve not used a flea collar for years and wouldn’t. I’d also never use ingestibles. The spot on type ones seem to be the best from all the research I’ve done. Revolution.
