★★★★★ My sincere appreciation to the staff and my total thanks to Dr. Vargas for helping me thru the process of putting my 22 year old poodle Lexi to rest. Orchid Springs has been like family to us over the years. There is no better place on earth to care for your pet. I will miss you all.Thank you again. Gail LongchampsGail L.Gail L. ★★★★★ During the pandemic, when it was impossible to get a appointment with a Veterinary, Orchid Springs Animal Hospital, said come on in, they were the only one that would see me that very day, I will always be grateful for them.Nancy K.Nancy K. ★★★★★ They were kind and with great communication towards us.Lizzy R.Lizzy R. ★★★★★ Friendly staff and the techs seem to know what they are doing.Ethan D.Ethan D. ★★★★★ I cannot begin to tell you all how much Orchid Springs Animal Hospital means to me. I've been going here for almost 20 years, and over that time Dr. Vargas and her team has saved my dogs again and again. Most recently is my Greta, shown here. We drove 4 hours from Jacksonville in a last ditch effort to figure out what was causing her pain as my vet up here in Jacksonville was at a loss. Dr. Vargas took the time and was able to diagnose Greta and 4 days later I see a remarkable improvement. Today would've been the day Greta was scheduled to be put to sleep, but Dr. Vargas has saved my girl to live and fight another day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.pryncesshmspryncesshms ★★★★★ My 1st time there, and Jessica was so sweet and helpful. I wish I could give her more stars ⭐️Thank you Jessica 💛Lisette S.Lisette S. ★★★★★ My three fur babies love visiting their Vet. Dr. Vargas and the wonderful staff here.Nerissa D.Nerissa D. ★★★★★ I don’t normally post reviews – but thought this was one where I should. I have been going to Dr. Vargas since 2007 (before World Suites addition), and have trusted Drs. Vargas, Hood, Moisa, Fernandez, Farrar and whomever Dr. Vargas brings into the OSAH family with my pets’ care. Her staff is fantastic from Paige to Courtney and too many that I can’t remember or name, and are attentive to their patients, even while boarding Our dog Paris, had many medical issues since she was 1, but lived for 15-1/2 years under their care from traditional medicine to acupuncture/holistic, and when it was her time to go the Rainbow Bridge due to age (dementia) and other issues, Dr. Vargas and the staff were as visibly upset as we were. We are now in the process of going down that rickety road again with my other dog Cami (just turned 12 and was diagnosed with cancer). Drs. Farrar and Vargas and I discussed our options, and we feel confident in what we are opting to go with - holistic. It’s not a cure – but neither is the traditional method – and it’s nice to have that alternative at our disposal. In fact, yesterday was “spa day” for Cami, and although Cami can still walk slowly - the staff at OSAH picked her up to bring her to the back, and carried her to the car for me when we left. I wish I had medical providers that paid that much attention to me and my husband. I totally recommend OSAH and have done so to neighbors for years. In fact, I have people I work with in Orlando, and when they are at wits end with their fur babies, I always recommend OSAH to them. I say it’s a hike to Polk– but I think it’s worth the trip to at least see. Anyway, that's my two cents worth.Catherine O.Catherine O. ★★★★★ Was a great place that I took my aging pet to after his cancer diagnosis. They made sure he was as comfortable as possible in his final year on this earth and I'll always be grateful for their compassion and empathy during the hardest time of my life. Miss you always Oscar boy, and #fcancer .*UPDATE* 😻We recently adopted a cat into our family , and we were there recently to get his shots and again , what a wonderful place! The aura and vibe in this office are nothing short of amazing. They truly care about your animal's health and make the visit as easy peasy and light as they can. Soon after our visit , I received a card in the mail, it was from Orchid Springs, and they were letting me know that a tree has been planted in Chippewa National Forest , as a tribute to my Oscar pup. The tears definitely flowed yet again that day when I opened it, but they were tears of appreciation and joy that this wonderful office had gone above and beyond and did this for me and my Oscar. Thank you Orchid Springs Animal hospital for everything , y'all are the best!Kacey C.Kacey C. ★★★★★ Friendly staff, very clean and open on Saturday.

The staff are great and very caring and professional. We are very happy with this full service, accredited animal hospital.Laura G.Laura G. ★★★★★ Love Dr VargasLeisha M.Leisha M. ★★★★★ My almost 17 year old cat woke up having trouble breathing and walking last week. I called several vets and explained the situation and not a single one was willing or able to take us. I called Orchid Springs and they said bring him right in. The outcome was not what we hoped it would be and I had to have my sweet baby put to sleep, but the entire staff was so nice and caring and I greatly appreciate they're willingness to make such a bad situation as easy as possible. I got his ashes back yesterday and my family and I were blown away by the package they put together for us.Angela W.Angela W. ★★★★★ Consistently Simply the Best. We trust them to provide quality care to our precious pups, Gemma and Cadet.Dave T.Dave T. ★★★★★ I love this places, the attention is excellent and my favorite part is that they have doctors on weekends. perfect for the people who work Monday through Friday.Stephano GStephano G ★★★★★ Love Dr. Vargas and the staff. You guys are awesome ❤️u uu u ★★★★★ Had a great experience taking our new puppy there... Very friendly staff and my Zoe didn't even realize that she was jabbed....Will be back for our follow up visits... Oh and her sister will be going there too...Mike K.Mike K. ★★★★★ I use for boarding and they have the best facilities and staff.Kathryn B.Kathryn B. ★★★★★ I took my fur babies to Orchid Springs Animal Hospital and I must say that they should be called an ANIMAL CARE CENTER & HOSPITAL, because Hospital doesn't say enough.They have a beautiful, clean, and well maintained facility.They can board our pets, have daycare, do acupuncture, dental cleaning, and even have a bone-shaped swimming pool!These pets are pampered.Now, I will get to the Vet and Vet Tech persons.THEY ARE AWESOME!My bichon, Tucker, is traumatized when going to the vet and groomers because of past bad experiences elsewhere.He went in today for his annual check up and was due for shots.I must say that his first experience with the Vet Tech, Jessica, was a great one. When Dr. Michelle Vereb entered to do his full exam, he felt relaxed enough that he allowed Jessica to hold him, and the doctor could do her exam and administer his scheduled immunization. We discussed his anxiety with lightning, thunder and fireworks. He was prescribed both a natural remedy to try and also a prescription (if absolutely needed) to calm him.Lillie, our 1year old Shih-Tzu, rolled around and was without a care in the world.She had her first check up and loved all the staff and was especially good with Jessica and Dr. Vereb.They went over every item I inquired about. They are informative and easy to understand. We were not rushed, and believe me, they were busy.Plus, to add one more thing.....They had a VERY ANXIOUS GERMAN SHEPPARD IN THE VERY NEXT ROOM. This poor dog was literally jumping on the walls and door, and barking continuously.I first hand witnessed a loving group of staff put their heads together with a plan to help calm this poor dog. Within minutes he was settled and reassured by staff that he was ok, and HE WAS.THIS PLACE IS TOP NOTCH!While checking out, I saw a BermaDoodle looking out over his split door in "his private room", very happy and calm. Heck, he was relaxing in the resort with a pool area.They go above and beyond.You may be able to find "cheaper", but I challenge you to find better.Keep up the great work!!THANK YOU!Grandma Margaret, Mommy LaVon, Tucker, & Lillie LeppoLaVon L.LaVon L. ★★★★★ Muy buen cuidado para las mascotas. Excelente servicio!!Claudia P.Claudia P. ★★★★★ Our dog Daisy had been suffering for allergies for a while. In the beginning it was something I thought we could manage at home but it became evident that was not true. Our poor girl’s back end was hairless from the itching, the skin on her paws was irritated, and she even had an ear infection. I felt like a failure for letting it go on so long! Dr. Hood was wonderful to us, she explained every part of Daisy’s plan of care thoroughly and didn’t make as feel judged. Also, we’re not rich by any means but the pricing was definitely very fair in my opinion. And it doesn’t hurt that the building is very beautiful and tranquil inside. We’ll be bringing all our pets here in the future.Salma J.Salma J. ★★★★★ I visit Dr LeighAnn Farrar and Kelsey technician , was Super Nice super professional and cared. This place is nice and clean and beautiful.

They immediately gave us an appointment and trreated her with care and skill. She’s recovering quickly.Jan M.Jan M. ★★★★★ I have several cats and they all go to see Dr Vargas. She’s extremely caring and really understands felines. The entire operation has great friendly personnel that love all fur babies. I e never had to use their boarding but it looks fabulous!! I tried different places when I first moved here and I m so happy I found Orchid Springs. We’ve even had them help one of our babies across the rainbow bridge and they couldn’t have been more caring. They made it much easier to say goodbye. Best Vet I have e er had!Debbey R.Debbey R. ★★★★★ We have been taking our cats to Dr Vargas since she opened her practice in the small building across the street. The doctors and staff at OSAH have always been professional and caring, treating all of our animals so well.

The staff is very friendly, provide pictures and videos. I love Orchid Springs Animal Hospital.Pablo Monge (Prophet Pablo M.Pablo Monge (Prophet Pablo M. ★★★★★ OSAH is a caring & professional group of people. I changed from my local vet to them when I adopted a senior cat through them. I was so impressed, I decided to stay with them & take my 2nd cat there as well. They have a wonderful facility that includes a bone-shaped pool for water-loving canines & boarding. The waiting area is wide & open enough for even the most rambunctious 4-leggers. It is exceptionally clean, the staff is welcoming. The vets (just a side note - all female) are compassionate & knowledgeable. I would take my cats to any one of them for treatment. I had a difficult decision to make at one point & they were there to help me with the best solution, for which I am very grateful. They are a 15 mile drive each way for me & my previous vet is a 3-mile from me. That should tell you how highly I would recommend Orchid Springs.Joanne B.Joanne B. ★★★★★ Diva had stage 5 IVDD with no bladder or bowel control. She had been on 3 weeks of complete crate rest with steroids and no improvement. Dr. Vargas was recommended so she started acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Now 4 weeks later,she has complete control over her bladder and bowels. She's standing, walking (a little shaky, but walking) and trying to run.Dr.Vargas and her staff are so caring and gave us hope. Would definitely recommend taking your furbabies to OSAH.Teresa MTeresa M ★★★★★ Having to fond a new vet was stressful, but I found what could be the best and easiest going vet around. They took care of Sadie and if felt like they had been taking care of her forever. Great people, great techs, and they respect you as a pet parent.Simply Plain Fancy A.Simply Plain Fancy A. ★★★★★ Vert services are top notch and facility is extremely clean should you need to board your furry babies. They also offer dog training and socialization opportunities for your dogs.Sharon C.Sharon C. ★★★★☆ O.S.A.H. is a nice place for cats too. When I would go on vacation, they take care of my cat and I don't worry about him being o.k. when we get back.Russell R.Russell R. ★★★★☆ Very expensive, nice facility. My Mom was a vet. Two vet office, very personal. Orchid Springs was all business, no personal feel.Dot Burkley D.Dot Burkley D. ★★★★☆ Way to expensive!! But then again every vet down here in FL is for the service they provide. Midgie was a rescued and we love him to death but down here they cost over 600.00 a year to keep your love one. Sounds like the heath system here.Edward D.Edward D.js_loader
