  • "I took my dog here to Button Brand on a recommendation from my neighbor after a terrible experience at another vet (also reviewed) a few days prior. I took him to the first vet initially because he started bleeding from his mouth and wouldn't stop. That vet gave me absolutely no indication of what he believed the problem to be, just a bunch of hypothetical problems, he didn't even try to stop the bleeding. Over the weekend my dog began collapsing and SO... I brought him to Button Brand for a second opinion fully expecting to have to euthanize him. Dr. Hays was really great and very forthcoming. He ran blood work on site at the time of the visit and had the results within 30 minutes. Turns out he's only got an infection and low platelets from the blood loss. My dogs prognosis is actually much better than I could ever have expected. I look forward to (hopefully) many more years with my buddy! I couldn't be happier :)"

  • "Was an out of town visitor when my dog displayed signs of a intestinal problem.
    Bunch Brand animal clinic got us in to see the Vet ( Dr. Hays) right away.
    Dr Hays diagnosed an intestinal obstruction. He stayed after hours to do the surgery
    to save my dog. The procedure went perfect. I have been involved with showing dogs for 35 years and have dealt with many Vets. Dr Hays ranks at the top of my list.
    He took the time to discuss my dogs situation and made us very comfortable with his knowledge and experience.
    Would highly recommend this clinic"

    Breanna Williams
  • "Have been taking my Britney to Dr. Hays for over a year and I have been
    extremely satisfied with the care Brandy has received. The staff has always
    been helpful and courteous. The building, inside and out have always been
    well cared for and clean. I appreciate the record of shots she has had and
    those coming due, on the bottom of my statement after each visit. This helps
    me keep Brandy up to date with her immunization.

    Thank you Dr. Hays and staff for the care you have always given Brandy."
    Morgan Wilcox

    Jess K
  • "Dr. Hayes and his family have cared for many of my pets and my children's pets for 14 years. He has always provided the best care for my animals. He charges me fairly and I am happy to pay his prices which I do consider to be more than fair."
    Marshall Coker
  • "Doc is very friendly and knowledgeable. He actually cares about my animals and will even make house calls if needed. The prices are not high like a lot of these reviews say. I was waiting in the lobby and I even noticed a few people came in to make payments, so he is nice enough to offer that.
    Sheree McIntire
  • "Excellent care and service! I had my Aussie recently spayed and she healed up so well and quickly, hardly any scar and the incision was small. So very pleased. Thank you Dr Hay's and all the staff at Button Brand :)"
    DSLD Info
  • "I like and trust the vet. The front office staff seems short-handed, as every time I visit it seems I need to wait 15 to 20 minutes to pay the bill and be on my way. I used another vet for several years- he was great and the staff very good and quick. But, Button Brand works hard for the homeless dogs and cats- something the other vet did not appear to be interested in. I appreciate Button Brand's willingness to help the homeless."
  • "Been using Doc since day one. Won't use anyone else! He is by far the most caring individual I know. His staff,bar none is the best! I recommend them highly."
    kathy c
  • "I dont trust anyone with my animals except for Dr. Hays. He's always helped my cats get back to health. On top of that with such a busy clinic that button brand is he manages everything well. Which to me is astounding work. Also the staff work with you when it comes to payments no matter the amount and are very friendly. Overall I'd never go to another vet until Dr. Hays decides to retire"
    Kurt Dog
  • "The entire staff at Button Brand are great people. They always greet us with a smile and have been a part of our family through good times (puppies) and sad times ( putting old animals down ). They make themselves available when needed. Thank you for the great care! I recommend Dr. Hays for all your animal care."
    Damian Orchard
  • "My animals have always been well treated at Button Brand. They even made a house call to put my old dog to sleep when he could not get up any longer after a heart attack. I appreciate the extra effort~!!"
    Steve Sale
  • "I really like this place they seem really nice and they care for your pet. We never went to them before but when we needed to get our dog spayed they went out of their way to get us in the next day. It’s really nice they ask information about your pet so they can send birthday card out for them and also a Annual check up. Thanks to the staff and we will be coming here for now on 😁"
    Gemmarey Daugherty
  • "Dr.. Hayes is an awesome wonderful and caring man. He has taken great care of my cats. Had some problem making an appointment. The receptionist was overwhelmed and i needed to be patient. Overall good place for care of pets"
    Donna Hernandez
  • "Dr Hays and his staff are caring and knowledgeable. They also work to get your pet seen when it isn't feeling well. I appreciate their willingness to work through lunch and late hours to make sure my pet got the attention she needed. They have a lot of patients to deal with and it can get busy, but they treated my dog with care and concern. I'm really thankful for Button Brand Vet"
    Rosemarie F
  • "On a Saturday afternoon my dog was in a lot pain (long story). The vet in Cloudcroft is not open on weekends and I couldn't stand to watch my dog suffer for two more days. I called Button Brand and Dr Hays answered the phone. I told him it was an emergency and he told me to come right down and he would relieve my dog's suffering. I was in tears when he told me that he could see me that day and I would not have to wait two more days to see the vet in Cloudcroft. I am so grateful for his emergency services! Also, Dr Hay's assistant was very helpful and understanding. He is a big guy and was able to carry my dog into the clinic. I could not have done it myself. I will forever be grateful to Dr Hays!"
    Marietta Crane

    more caring veterinarian for small or large animals."
    Sandi Knight
  • "WOW !!! What an amazing experience! Words cannot express the thanks I want to give to this clinic. I had an emergency situation with my service dog and they went above and beyond in getting me in to be seen right away. The staff was so kind and understanding working with such a delicate situation & they took great care of us. Dr. Marvin Hays was a God send on such short notice. His kind & intelligent way of handling not only my animal but myself as well was just outstanding. Thank you for everything.
    Jessycah Gilmore

    Cj Beltran
  • "I think Dr. Hays is a awesome vet! We used him for 8 years or more when we lived in NM, and we'd still use him if we hadn't moved to Georgia. He will always help any way he can when you need him, no matter the time of day or day of the week. If we could have moved him with us, we would have but that might have been selfish of us. �"

    Julia Ann Napier
  • "My family recently had an emergency and almost lost out youngest to parvo. I was out of town when it started and were 3 days into it over the weekend. they were able to squeeze him in as an emergency and got him fluids immediately.

    He is now home after 4 days and is still not out of the woods but is feeling and looking so much healthier. there are no words to really describe how much their attentive care and quick response means to our family emergency so they will get this poorly worded Thank You from the Griffith Family.

    His 14 year old Husky brother has been going mad with out his 2.5 year old pain in the butt pitbull tri-pod of a lil brother to rome the yard with and snuggle up with at night.

    For all intents and purposes DVM Marvin Hays and his staff have made the Griffith family so happy after we thought for sure Max was a lost cause.

    Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ all 7 of us"

  • "Our 4 year old Shi-Tzu had some bad teeth and hadn’t been herself. She’d not been eating all that well or even using the restroom normally either. I called them yesterday and was able to get her in today. They did an amazing job cleaning her teeth and taking care of her. She had several extractions and she’s already almost back to normal the same day. No more bad breath either. THANK YOU BUTTON BRAND! AND IT WAS ALL DONE AT VERY REASONABLE PRICE!😊"
