★★★★★ Dr. Underwood and his entire staff are great to work with. They are always there for pets and their people... In good times and bad times. Thank you so much for your consistency in caring for my dogs, and cat, through many years.Rip R.Rip R. ★★★★★ This is by far the best vet I have taken my dog to! The service is amazing, and they truly care about the animals they treat! My dog had knee surgery over a year ago and it was my first time having any major surgery done with her, so I was just as stressed as my fur baby during the recovery. Dr. Underwood answered my questions and was available whenever I had concerns. I have never had a vet be so attentive both to the animal and its owner! I mainly see Dr. McDonald for regular wellness visits, and he is just as amazing as Dr. Underwood. They let you email any concerns you have and answer within the same day! Having a dog who has a lot of allergies, being able to email questions and concerns has alleviated a ton of stress I used to have. Not once have I had a bad experience here and all the employees are just amazing. I really cannot express how appreciative I am of them!Audrey H.Audrey H. ★★★★★ Service and care that far exceeds others that we have used over the years. Professional and caring attitude that provided a safe and comfortable place for our "kids" to feel at ease and welcomed. The caring attitude certainly prevailed with all of the staff, making us feel very much at ease with the care they offered for our dogs. Certainly recommend this vet location with the highest degree of satisfaction.Bob K.Bob K. ★★★★★ Amazing staff…..great care for my dogs! Don’t get them confused with another similar named vet.

They are all kind, helpful, and attentive. There is no place better than Kennesaw Mountain Veterinary services to take care of your pet!!Lauren M.Lauren M. ★★★★★ I have been coming to KMVS for years now, and I am so glad I do. I started coming here because it was close to where I lived, but I recently moved and still drive out of my way to come to this vet. All of the veterinarians, techs, assistants, and front desk personnel go above and beyond to make sure your vet visit is a pleasant one. Recently, my cat needed to have surgery to repair an entropion eyelid and have a sarcoma mass removed from his cheek. He is 11 years old and is FIV+ so he usually needs some extra care. Before the surgery, they walked me through the whole process so I knew what would be happening and what to expect. His healing took a little longer than anticipated, but Dr. Kirk Underwood, Dr. Zack McDonald, and the whole team at KMVS were always there to help. They would call me to check in and see how he is doing during his recovery or if there was anything I needed or if I had any questions, which shows they really do care!Susan McQueen who is the office manager makes sure you have everything you need and is always very welcoming and helpful. The whole team at KMVS really showed that they take animal care seriously. They truly want the best for your pet and will do everything to make sure they are receiving the best possible care. I trust them to take care of my cat and I recommend them to everyone. I cannot say enough positive things about KMVS!Ally H.Ally H. ★★★★★ Thorough explanation of our cat's musculoskeletal diagnosis from Dr. Underwood who was extremely knowledgeable, approachable and kind.Kudos also to the Vet Tech who elicited our kitty's history in acompassionate, patient manner to the efficient front desk staff who completed our checkout.Am strongly considering switching veterinary practices for our6 pets from our local Vet in Dallas to KMVS.elaine M.elaine M. ★★★★★ Always takes the best care of our pets..

Very knowledgeable and transparent about his condition.Brandon B.Brandon B. ★★★★★ We bounced around between multiple vets before we eventually found them. Our cat is very hesitant around the vet and can get aggressive, which used to make other vets make us give our cat sedatives before a visit. Since we’ve been coming to them, no sedatives have been necessary due to their patience and gentle handling of our cat. We’ll never go to another vet!Clay R.Clay R. ★★★★★ I've known Dr Underwood for about 30 years. He has attended all of my animals from my dogs to my horses. I drive about 25 miles in order to see him.

I found a dog that had been abandoned on the side of the road and brought her in to be checked for a chip. So many employees immediately came into the lobby to love on the puppy, trim her nails, give her a spray for her tummy that had scratches all over it. I have been in contact with Nicole for updates and she, like all the other employees I got to interact with, has been incredible and so kind. Thank you all SO much for what you do.Sara P.Sara P. ★★★★★ Went in without an appointment because my pup was sick and had a fever.

Even though Dr Underwood was fully booked, the staff at KMVS worked me in on Tuesday for a consult and surgery on Wednesday. The consult was quick and efficient- I met with both Dr Underwood and Dr McDonald who explained in depth the options we had with surgery. I checked in with the surgery tech Jenn the next day who was fantastic as well. She was very patient and thorough as I had many concerns/questions with the surgery and recovery. Also would like to shout out the practice manager, Leigh, for speaking with me after the consult and being so kind discussing my payment options since it was a big unexpected expense.RachelRachel ★★★★★ Very professional and friendly!Adella B.Adella B. ★★★★★ Great and timely service.

I highly recommend Dr. Underwood’s team for any animal that needs to be taken care of. They are the best in the county!!!Mark R.Mark R. ★★★★★ We have been taking our pets to KMVS for the last 4 or more years and have nothing but good things to say. No matter how minor the reason for your visit, they always call to see how your pet is doing and follow up. Sadly we had to have our 16 year old kitty put to sleep during the Covid shut down and the staff were so compassionate and kind and let me come inside to be with her. In addition to all that, we have a boxer mastiff mix 80+ lb puppy that is just this side of crazy and somehow they managed to get her to let them dremmel her nails! Must be a dog whisperer back there! The above average care we receive at KMVS is the reason I can whole heartedly recommend them. If you are looking for a new vet, look no further!Sherri P.Sherri P. ★★★★★ I've been going there since it opened. I am very pleased with the care that my cats have gotten. Everyone is caring and professional. I can tell that they love the animals.Jeanne R.Jeanne R. ★★★★★ Kennesaw Mt.

Our dog is the nervous type and only seems worse after recent thunderstorms and fireworks. They were gentle and caring.JoAnn S.JoAnn S. ★★★★★ We are new to KMVS, and were very apprehensive changing vets. We had the same vet for all of our Dogs, for 15 years, and after moving to Acworth, we decided to give KVMS a try, and have been VERY IMPRESSED. The staff is great and friendly, and you can tell they are animal lovers. You do not get to interact with the Vets, just the techs, which I am not a fan of, but besides that, I have been very impressed.Jeff B.Jeff B. ★★★★★ Can't say enough about Dr Arvid Edwards.
