I'be been taking my cats to Allandale for the past 1.5 years and have been extremely impressed with the quality of care provided. I have two senior cats with different health issues, and was concerned our previous vet wasn't providing enough options for treatment. A friend recommended Allandale, and I'm so thankful we made the switch. ”

Love this vet! Dr. Mohammad is funny, caring and down-to-earth. She takes care of both my dog and cat with the same amount of tenderness. She is open and honest, while providing the necessary information. We don't feel judgement when we are there. Have seen other Doctors and Dr. Mohammad is our favorite!”
— Sara Hyzy
The entire staff was incredibly kind and personable. Our routine check-up was unrushed and Dr. Bello took the time to incorporate wellness education into our visit, making the visit (and the price) even more worthwhile. His more hollistic approach to vet care was incredibly refreshing and unique and I never once felt pressured to seek unnecessary preventative treatment or purchase expensive food. The tech was awesome and her assistance in keeping my cat calm and comfortable.”
— Sarah Gobble
Super friendly and knowledgeable. Dr Mohammed and the staff are helpful and patient in explaining all options. Everyone, including the front desk staff seem to know and like my dogs.”
