Dr. Pirrung is a great vet. He has taken care of 6 of my dogs over 20 years. He really loves his patients (furry, not human) and you can tell by the way he treats them and talks to them. He has gotten a couple of my pets thru some serious illnesses. If I have questions, he will take as long as it takes to answer my questions a make sure I understand what is going on with my pet. I just cannot say enough good things about him. He is a wonderful human being. He will give your pet all of the attention and care that you would yourself.

Dr. Pirrung is HORRIBLE! I took my puppy because he was vomiting, nor was he eating or drinking anything. They tested him and he was Parvo positive. As an owner, I was already very upset and crying. His "bedside assistance" is VERY disruptive. He made no suggestions on what I should do. I asked him if it were his pup what he would do. He replied by saying "if it were my dog he would not have Parvo to begin with". Luckily i was not in the mood to say anything back or hell would have started! My step mom was with me as well and said we were trying to find him a home but could not so then took him to get shots so it was partly our fault but we were trying to get rid of him due to the fact that we already have 2 dogs. He replied to her as well and said "Yeah well eye-to-eye/20/20. I am sorry, if i did not care, I WOULDN'T COME SPEND HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS TO HELP MY ANIMAL! Last night he was given 3 injections and I was told this morning more should have been done. No IV's were given for fluids either. Needless to say, i am VERY disappointed. My pet is no longer with us and I know for a fact more could have been done and i was willing to pay for it. I do NOT recommend this vet! DO NOT COME HERE! & "Dr. Pirrung," be sure and make your clients feel welcome. You are there to HELP! & I hope & pray you feel more sympathy next time for owners who are crying in your waiting room. You are there to help.

We like this vetinary office well enough. Dr. Pirrung doesn't necessarily have people friendly skills, but he is wonderful with his patients, the animals. I trust him and will always take my pets to him.

Dr Pirrung is an awesome vet. He's nice and knowledgeable. His staff are above average! Always able to fit my fur-babies in when they are sick.

There's been a Dr. Pirrung tak...

There's been a Dr. Pirrung taking care of my family for the past 45 years. For the past 19 or so that's been Dr. Mark Pirrung taking great care of my pets. He's just the best. Several years ago when my little kitten got pneumonia Dr. Pirrung met me at his office on a Sunday to give him an injection. That's going above and beyond the call of duty in my book. I wouldn't think of taking my cat or my dog anywhere else.

I have 3 cats. One had been outdoors and in cat fights during the previous two weeks, the other two are strictly indoor cats. I took the outdoor cat to this vet to be tested for leukemia and to get shots, and informed the vet that my intention was to let him into the house with the other two cats. The vet completely missed a huge abcess from a bite wound on the cat, and neglected to tell me that the $150 test would not be conclusive because the incubation period for the disease is up to six weeks. I let the cat into the house with my other two cats and now they are at risk of being infected with deadly leukemia. I found that out when I returned the cat a few days after shots and testing because of the abcess that had burst and specifically asked about the potential for spreading disease. I might end up with 3 dead cats due to negligence on the part of this vet in not informing me about the dangers. I won't know until I spend another $150 to repeat the test in six weeks.

BEST VET/BEST STAFF!

Dr. P. has been our vet for 25+ years. We have never had another vet since moving to Mesquite in 1979. He is caring and understanding, and very kind. His building houses complete surgical suites, laboratory, overnight/day boarding, prescription and non-prescriptions medication, etc. Dr. P. is up-to-date on the latest technologies and treatments. His wonderful office manager, Donna, has been with Dr. P. for many years and is also kind and caring. His two vet techs are wonderful and very knowledgable, and are readily available to answer questions.



My favorite Dr. P. story: Our precious Schnauzer, Harley, had an upper gastrointestinal bleed several years ago. I was very upset and expecting the worst. When Dr. P. called me to give an update on Harley, he told me how great Harley was doing and that I could probably pick him up the next day. I asked this wonderful animal practitioner/surgeon if he would kiss Harley goodnight. Dr. P. said he would, and I know he did what I asked. He's that kind of physician, and that is why our family (including my son and his wife) and friends will continue to see to see Dr. P. until he retires, which I hope is a very, very long time.



Thanks for all you do for us, Dr. P. and staff! You are the grestest!

He's there when I need him

When we moved to Mesquite in 2000, we went to a local vet near our home that performed bladder stone surgery on our dog. One evening after the surgery, he was in distress. I could not reach the vet and began to search for someone who could help me -- I was in a panic! Dr. Pirrung responded to my call and saw our dog the next day. Since then, Dr. Pirrung helped us keep his pH level with diet. He special orders the supplement that our dog finds the most tasty, too! I've had to call Dr. Pirrung after hours since that first time, and he is always quick to respond and there when I need him.
