Vet Clinics NOT recommended

Below is a list of veterinary clinics in Amman that I do NOT recommend and the reason why.

VETZONE Pet Health Center

Location: 8th Circle – King Abdullah II Street, 336

Why I don’t recommend them: I have received many complaints regarding this vet clinic. See a couple of them here:

Real life testimonies:

“They mistreated our pup and as a result she died. They didnt call to tell us that she died, we were going to see her that day at the vet and that’s how we found out. We didnt get to see her and when we asked how she died they said they did an xray and found a bone punctured something, with no explanation as to how that happened. We then asked to see the X-ray and they flat-out refused. When I say ‘they’ it was the owner who was completely insensitive and downright rude.”

“I brought my sick kitten to them freaking out, I thought she might have feline distemper (panleukopenia) and the woman behind the desk came around and injected her for it before running a test. Then ran a test that came back negative. Then told me my kitten was dehydrated and over-fed and that’s why she was sick, put her on a drip and my baby became very active very fast. I went to pay the bill, looked in the box, and she had bloody foam coming out of her mouth. She died on the table in front of me within 15 minutes. They said she had an “untreatable” virus like a cold found in stray cats and that even in the best conditions 50% of kittens don’t survive (bullshit, I know, I used to run a cat shelter).”

Amman Vet Clinic

Location: Mecca Street (near Toyota company)

Why I don’t recommend them: They support dog breeding and selling.

  1. Want to add a comment about Vetzone- they are horrible, please please don’t bring your pets there. The facilities are nice and the shop is good, though expensive, but the vet services are careless and business-driven. Brought a rescued kitten there as I was concerned with her eye health…a vet looked at her for literally a minute and declared she is blind but healthy. I didn’t trust this and brought her to Healthy Pet who treated her immediately for pneumonia, feline herpes, and infections in both eyes. A few weeks later one eye had to be removed, but the other is getting better and still being treated. How on earth a “trained professional” missed these things I will never understand. Also my neighbor brought their new puppy there and told me the same- they looked her over for a minute and said she is in fine health and offered a price for grooming. I looked at her the same night and found over 20 ticks on her body, most in her ears…so I guess the vet didn’t even examine her at all!
    Healthy Pet is great- have treated 4 rescue kittens there, and First Pet is great- have treated a rescued Canaan…though to note I never received any discount from First Pet for a rescued animal- but have from Healthy Pet.

    Thanks for sharing this information.


    1. Hi Laura. You are definitely not alone in your complaints against Vetzone. They are in the section “Not recommended” in the article due to the amount of people who have sent me similar horror stories. Very unfortunate to see this happening at an established center 😦
