I highly recommend them!Sonja H.Sonja H. ★★★★★ Indian Ridge Animal Hospital has always been the best for our pups. Matt is wonderful. 2019 they were about to close and our Buggey Boy was sick and we knew it was time. Matt stayed for us and didn't rush. Matt, Holly, and I will never forget this.

Very friendly. I overslept my kitten's appointment (I work graveyard) and they were very understanding and accommodating. They told me I could come right down and they'd see me no problem, and they did. We love Indian Ridge!Brianna S.Brianna S. ★★★★★ Recently got a pet and needed to have it neutered. But we also wanted to establish a relationship with a vet for any future problems. Picking out a vet was a big decision for us because we needed to have the “hospital” availability in the event something went wrong. We live quite a ways from the city. After reading multiple reviews about many vet offices plus animal hospitals in surrounding areas, we decided on Indian Ridge although it wasn’t necessarily the closest for us. It’s just a couple more miles farther than another option.In addition to basing my decision on other reviews, I called Indian Ridge. The lady I spoke with was so patient with all of my questions about price, recovery, etc. once at the clinic, every single office and medical personnel I came in contact with was fantastic! They were super busy at 7:30 in the morning and they handled each client with efficiency and in a caring manner. All of the clients appeared to be happy too which says a lot.The vet tech explained the procedure for dropping off our pet, picking him up, the post surgical instructions and more. The clinic also provides everything in detail in writing to include itemized pricing.K PK P ★★★★★ We followed Dr Alexander from a clinic in Johnson City, but we'd follow her anywhere! She's saved the life of more than one of our babies. Great techs here, too. 🙂Charlene M.Charlene M. ★★★★★ We had to put our old cat to sleep.

The response from the staff was great. They immediately went into action to remove a bone lodged in her mouth and throat. Very professional and caring.Paul P.Paul P. ★★★★★ One of the best Veterinarian Hospitals I have dealt with in a long time, for several reasons. Our first visit was pleasant and affordable. The main office and exam rooms were clean. The staff is courteous , friendly and accommodating. The Vet. ( Dr. Mears) was considerate and communicated well in simple terms. He then kept his promise to call with results. Amazing these days!! The atmosphere while there was calm and I don’t dread bringing my senior dog ( who is normally sensitive and easily shaken,) there in the future. I truly believe they do their best to communicate well with their Clients and offer the best care. KUDOS!!!SJG M.SJG M. ★★★★★ They are the best at caring for my fur babies.

They are friendly, caring and affordable. Wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else!April K.April K. ★★★★★ Very helpful and great advice on where to reach out to for exotic vet in area when I needed itJessa B.Jessa B. ★★★★★ They are taking such great care of my daughter's dog who has cancer. The best vet in all the tri citiesAlan N.Alan N. ★★★★★ I had a beloved pet whose time had come to an end on Monday. My regular vet’s office is closed on Monday’s and w very little time and life left for my boy I contacted Indian Ridge to help me humanely put him to rest. I was treated w respect from the first phone call to receiving a beautiful card w paw and nose prints, w a flower to plant in the mail from staff at IR, literally two days later. The staff were able to get me in wi in a 5 minute or less span when I arrived and were able to get us in a room comfortably where I could spend some time w my Diego before I said good bye. They gave me all the time I needed before and after. I could not have asked for a better reception than what was given to us. I’ve had the same vet for 15 years but it’s been so far away for me to have the convenience to be able to use them consistently. . I believe that we will be using IR from here on out for our babies in the future. Thank u above and beyond for taking such good care of us on Monday. I can’t tell u how much that has meant to me and made this difficult decision a little bit easier and less stressful too. Thank u from the bottom of my heart for helping my sweet boy cross to The Bridge.Lara D.Lara D. ★★★★★ We took our Min. Schnauzer in yesterday as walk in emergency. Our boy was extremely ill and we were afraid we were going to lose him. This was the nicest, kindest bunch of people from check in to check out, and everybody in between! Dr. Bunch was a rare jewel. Helping us thru testing, costs, injections and finding the best care plan to remedy our son. He made an instantaneous bounce back after Dr. Bunch and his staffs efforts. I can't say enough to thank them. What was sure to be a bad experience with this illness, turned into finding a genuine place of care and concern. You can't go wrong choosing this Vet practice!Sophronia M.Sophronia M. ★★★★★ Very caring, friendly and helpful staffSharon N.Sharon N. ★★★★★ Great staff. Had to euthanize one of my furnbabies due to cancer but they were very comforting and even stayed past closing time for us to grieveJames R.James R. ★★★★★ Indian ridge animal hospital is the best I have ever went to. My dog loves going there just not the shots. But we get her nails done every 3 to 5 weeks and Bella loves the people. She gets scared at fist at the door but once she gets through the door she starts wagging her tail and goes and says hello to the workers and the cats that are there. Thank you Indian ridge for the best service and the best people I've known.william B.william B. ★★★★★ They have always been very caring about your pet.I have been going there for a number of years.Diana H.Diana H. ★★★★★ Very nice and helpful.Phyllis W.Phyllis W. ★★★★★ Had to have 2 of my dogs and my son's dog euthanized over a period of 3 years. They were the kindest, most compassionate group of people. They truly seemed to care above what I expected from people who didn't know us or our dogs. Highly recommend this place ❤️Dee B.Dee B. ★★★★★ This has been my vet since 2008. I've strayed a time or two because of distance, but always back because they are the best vets. They honestly care about your animals. Others I've been to care about the dollar not the animal. Doctor Mears saved one of my a cats in the past and Dr. Bunch just recently took care of my dog bella. hoping she gets through and looking better since taking her to Indian Ridge. They are kind and compassionate. They take time to listen and explain. Most of the people working there are longtimers as well. Everyone is very helpful and caring. I do like the new set up to text in with your number of where your parked. It's more organized this way.J B.J B. ★★★★★ Love how we are treated by the staff.

Not only did they fit me in last minute but they took wonderful care of my little guy. He had to stay overnight and I was so happy I was able to go visit him on Sunday even though they were closed. I highly recommend this veterinarian. Everyone truly cared about every animal I saw come through the door as I waited. My little Tiny Dog is recovering well at home thanks to their wonderful care.Michelle D.Michelle D. ★★★★★ Dr. Bunch and all his staff are always very courteous and truly care about their patients.amy L.amy L. ★★★★★ Professional and caring !!

One did walk ins but only at the end of the day. They got my dog in, a new patient, evaluated and started surgery on him all within a couple hours. We went home with all meds to start my pup on the right track. Prices were reasonable as well. They have earned my trust!jeff hjeff h ★★★★★ I’ve been an IRAH client for over 20 years.

I travel approximately 20 miles to take my pets there…it’s well worth the drive. My 10 year-old recently had a torn ACL for which she had to have surgery…six months later she doesn’t even have a limp. IRAH is the best!Constance T.Constance T. ★★★★★ Solana can't thank y'all enough for taking the time to care for her! She's feeling great today.nicole E.nicole E. ★★★★★ Very friendlyPriscilla G.Priscilla G. ★★★★☆ Quick service, cheaper prices, and willing to work with you.Christopher M.Christopher M. ★★★★☆ Nice people and have a walk in clinic on SaturdayTravis P.Travis P. ★★★★☆ Updated Review (8-15-2023):I did receive a message from Indian Ridge today, and while there was no response to my partner's prior emails, I did go back and see where there was attempt to contact me a bit over a week after we left our cat with them. I was at work and did not recognize it as a saved number on my phone, but I am updating my review in fairness to them.We're picking him up later this afternoon and we're very relieved. Thank you for reaching back out; we really appreciate it. It's been a very painful loss and we're glad to get this closure after the miscommunication.--Initial Review:I'm not sure exactly where to place the blame, if I'm being totally honest. We lost our cat very suddenly a month ago; my fiancee rushed him there, but he passed before anything could be done.Traumatic, but these things happen. The issue is that we opted to leave his remains there. We were told that my partner's card would be charged by the cremation service within a couple days.We waited til the following week. No charge. No word. We waited another week. I checked my messages and email... Nothing. She emailed and didn't receive a word back.Our work schedules are hectic so it's hard to get down there during their open hours, so we gave it a bit longer. Today makes the month mark, then suddenly after my partner send another email today, the charge goes through her bank account and not a soul contacted us about it . Nothing. Losing our baby was horrible enough. Not knowing where his remains were has been anxiety inducing.At this point we don't know if they company they use is even going to be giving us the ashes of our actual pet or just something completely random.If the vet did actually, promptly pass his remains on to the cremation service and they failed to do as they were supposed to, then perhaps they should look into recommending a different company. We're mortified. Our baby deserved far more respect than this. The money is one thing--it did end up causing that account to overdrawn mid pay cycle for her; but the biggest issue is the total, utter lack of communication during an entire process. We will never go back, though the doctor we saw was very kind in the moment. I like to think that this part was out of his hands, but it doesn't change how taxing this has been.Chey W.Chey W. ★★★★☆ Dr Mike is a caring and kind vet. The staff is also nice and helpful.Susan Marva K.Susan Marva K. ★★★★☆ They are very friendly and helpful.Lorrie H.Lorrie H. ★★★★☆ Good environment 👍Patrick B.Patrick B.js_loader

Dr. Bunch is the best. He has helped me with my fur babies so much over the years. Also the nicest staff from reception to the assistants… wouldn’t take my babies anywhere else.

I have taken my animals here pretty much my whole life .. we have always had such great experiences here even during some of the hardest times with our pets.

I have been taking my fuzzies to IRAH for years and have the highest respect for the staff. They have treated numerous pets, with numerous issues and I appreciate their professionalism and medical knowledge. Thanks to all at Indian Ridge.

Dr. Bunch and Dr. Stribling took phenomenal care of my pup Otis after a big scare! They are compassionate, experienced, and the best in the Tri-cities! Thank you!!

Lindsey C.

This was our first time using this office for our fur babies. Our puppy was getting spayed so naturally we were a little nervous. We were met by professional, courteous and caring staff from start to finish. The vet took time to speak with me before and after the procedure and the staff made she was loved on and comfortable. Will be taking all of our fur babies here for their check ups, shots and other needs.
