Testimonials

We love Dr. Byrd!!! We have one rescue Great Pyrenees dog and 4 inherited pure bred cats which makes for a busy fur baby household. Dr. Byrd has provided exceptional, excellent care to all of our animals, along with her wonderful staff. In addition, she provides amazing community service by hosting vets during their training. We highly recommend her & her 4 Paws Animal Clinic!

We love Four Paws! We have two elderly pets and lately have needed their assistance. We love their attitude that we start with the simplest solutions. The cost seems lower then other clinics we have gone to, and no guilt trips if we don’t want to jump to the most expensive and extensive treatments. They genuinely care for you and your pets.

Really like this place. My poor sweet cat is at her end with cancer and everyone here has been so patient and caring helping us through this tough time. I am so beyond grateful for the kindness from everyone. Thank you for helping Nonnie.

Teri gave our puppy Lucy the most thorough wellness checkup and even gave her basic training as a bonus. The staff all genuinely cares for their charges and they also give great customer service from the front desk to all technicians/assistants. Lucy especially loves being able to come for occasional playdates in the fabulous fenced yard. Thank you, 4 Paws for being such an asset to the island and the wellness of our pets.

Dr. Terry is a caring thorough vet. Her staff is supportive and kind. Diagnosis was well explained and the care of my dog long term was obviously important to this clinic. I would highly recommend using this group as part of your pet- family”s care!

Had my first experience with 4 Paws and have to give 5 stars across the board. I have a rescue dog who frightens easily but needs regular visits for his horribly neglected toenails. 4Paws got me in right away and the tech Krystal was patient and calm with Jack and worked with us outside which allowed me to hold him and to get all four paws addressed. We are going back monthly. Super impressed with the care these people apply to their business. A GREAT resource to have on the island.

This veterinary clinic is wonderfully caring. Terri Byrd is an excellent vet who always puts the needs of the animal first. Her entire staff is also very caring and compassionate. I highly recommend 4 Paws, I’ve had extremely good experiences with them every time.

Very friendly and professional. Got lots of good tips for training our puppy.

Dr. Teri and her staff were very kind and took excellent care of my older, and somewhat ornery, cat. They made her very comfortable during her exam and blood draw and I really appreciated the speedy test results. Thank you!

-Alyssa R.


Caring, thorough and compassionately professional. They have separate dog and cat entrances, I thought that was cool. They had almost instantaneous lab results, CBC included. Very impressed will bring my kitty back.!!

-Charlie M.


My pitty absolutely LOVES the team there, she is very picky about other people but she really warmed up fast, they make your dogs feel at home 😊 we sure do love them and so does Lexi!!

-Taunya P.


For the first time, my animals don’t have a fear reaction going to the Vet. That is huge. The staff are wonderful and genuinely caring. I highly recommend them.

-Cindra L.


I wish I had found Dr. Byrd and her caring staff 10 years ago. I recently brought Brylee (dog) there for her yearly exam. Dr. Byrd and her staff are excellent. For the first time in ten years my girl, Brylee experienced the first fear free nail trimming. They are a certified fear free clinic with amazing and comforting approaches. I am so grateful to have them here. Island life has just gotten better.

Dr Teri is our first choice in vet care. We are so happy she back in the area in business. Her commitment to high quality animal care and the well being of not only my pets but animals everywhere is exceptional.

-Kim C.


Dr Byrd and her entire staff were so kind and helpful before, during and after Mazie’s surgery (she’s an 11 year old Golden Retriever). Dr Byrd is an excellent surgeon and Mazie recovered quickly & completely, thanks to the wonderful care she received. I highly recommend 4 Paws Veterinary Clinic!

Our Stella had her first dental cleaning after almost 6 years of putting it off. We went in thinking there would be little if any issues. We knew 1 tooth was getting removed, but due to her teeth not being fully grown in, Stella had to have 8 teeth pulled!

The care and compassion shown by Teri and her team during this went above and beyond; how Robyn immediately emphasized with us and showed so much attention and understanding to how Stella and we felt, how the team kept in contact with me over their Facebook’s messenger the whole way through. I am still crying.

We take great care of our pups, weekly brushing at home, good food and like many, our dogs are like our kids. We will be happy to see Stella as her old self playing frisbee again with Michael and tug with her sidekick Jake.

Stella will heal, she may not be doing commercials like her mom or her sister Moxie – she lost many front teeth – but we are confident her health is in good hands with this team.

I set up appointments for my two pups. One was a blue heeler who isn’t really nervous (like the other who’s a dachshund). Both experiences were amazing. The Veterinarian was thorough and had a positive attitude and calming personality. She made great suggestions about my dachshund’s IVDD issue and helped me help my heeler loose weight. Going back for sure!!

-Victoria L.


Our pets love Dr. Byrd and the staff at 4 Paws. We’re really happy that we switched to 4 Paws—especially since Dr. Byrd was able to diagnose and promptly cure an infection that two other vets were unable to help us with for over a year.

-Linda H.


Honest and affordable. I won’t take my dogs anywhere else.

-Kaya K.


Very happy with this clinic. Strongly recommend!!

-Lara Y.


Mike took Obie to her appointment and said it was the calmest she had ever been during a visit to the veterinarian. I appreciated the great follow-up phone calls about her reaction to her new medication.

-Tina D.


Dr. Teri Byrd and her staff are wonderful with our pets. Lily, Carmen and Minnie love going there, and we are confident that there’s no better veterinary care for them. HIGHLY recommended!

-Linda S.


Everyone here has been wonderful! Informative helpful and caring. They were Sensitive to my dogs issues and knowledgeable about the behavior in addition to the expert medical attention. Thank you for providing a positive experience for us!

-Lori L.


4 paws has been extremely helpful and informative with my puppy Charlie! They are always willing to answer my questions about if what he is doing is “normal” and made my pup which was adopted from a bad situation like the vet!
-Megan M.


Very friendly and knowledgeable my dog loved Teri and everyone there! My dog is usually really stressed when he has to go somewhere new but he wasn’t at all! I highly recommend them!

-Patty R.


Our little pup seemed so at ease with the staff at 4 Paws today! We had the type of visit that she usually detests (anal glands + nail trim) and she was quite cheerful and forgiving! Love the “fear free” concept and quality of care for our precious beast!❤️
