After asking friends what veterinarians they'd recommend, ABC Vets was their response. We took our senior dog and cat to the San Marcos hospital and they are simply the best! They're very professional, courteous and willing to spend time with us to explain; we think we're getting the best medical care possible for our pets.If only we could find doctors like this for people.

absolutely love these vets. I have been a patient of Dr. Neichin for the last 17 years. I have always had excellent service and great care for my pets. I also feel that in general the staff has been informed and if someone didn't know something they would find someone who did. I have referred dozens of people to see Dr. Martin or Dr.Neichin and will continue to do so.

Our 15 year old Beagle was not doing well, went to ABC to put her to sleep. Staff was very friendly and understanding, took us to a private room with sofa, chair, etc, like a living room in your home. Doctor came in to discussed my options, no pressure. Explained the procedure, asked if I wanted to be present, told him no. He said I could take a long as I wanted with my dog, no rush. A very nice young lady came in to complete the paper work, paid right there, didn't have to go back out to the waiting area. Very professional, made a very difficult experience as easy as possible. Price was very reasonable.

I went here for the first time a little while ago and had the best experience. I brought in a very sick dog, and I was really upset and I was definitely in a position where I could have been taken advantage of. I'm sure they knew this and they did not take advantage of my distressed position. I would have done any testing or procedures they recommended to figure out what was wrong with her. Dr. Hansche was so great. What I appreciated most was how thorough he was. When I picked up her up, he spent at least 15 min. with me going over everything to expect and her tests in great detail. I've never had a vet go through every single detail of every test and x-ray. He also personally called me several times over the next week, not an office person, the vet! He really cared, not for the money, but I could tell he cared about my baby. She is now healthy and happy with a full recovery. Thanks Dr. Hansche!

The vets and ABC are the best and most caring people I have ever known. ABC has taken such wonderful care of my dogs and cats and I miss having them as my Vets. I would get anything to find vets here in Texas as caring as I had in California. Thank you ABC for everyting.

I love ABC it is by far the best veterinary office I have ever been to. I mean the place even smells good! The staff was awesome and loved my little baby Cleatus. It's weird you would think a 4 pound chihuahua would be scared of his doctor but he wags is tail and gets so excited to see Dr Martin. I have never had one of my doctors call to check on me after an illness, but Dr Martin called to check on Cleatus... I was amazed.\nIf you love your pets go to ABC

I really appreciate the personal attention at your office. I've brought two animals in, my dog and my mom's cat while I fostered her, and after each visit I get a follow up call to make sure all is well. All my questions are always answered and realistic options are suggested for problems I encounter. Love you guys!

ABC Veterinary Hospital is Simply the best - if I could find doctors this skilled and caring for myself I'd be extremely happy....\nThey have an amazing veterinary hospital with a level of care and types of services I have not found anywhere else.\n\nI took my dog in for she wasn't feeling well and was greeted with the utmost respect and professional manner.\n\nI would recommend them to my friends and family.

We have two cats who both go to ABC. One is a shelter rescue and the other is a 4 month old kitten. The staff are always very pleasant and loving with the cats, giving them extra pets and attention. The doctor is great (Dr. Martin), asking questions, answering our questions, playing with the cats while he's talking to us. He always asks about the other cat when we're there with just one.\n\nThey are a little on the pricey side compared to other places, but we think it's worth it for the service we get. Our brother goes to a cheaper place for routine shots and check-ups but comes back here for emergencies.\n\nThe facility is very nice, always clean, roomy. Someone always calls the day after to make sure everyone is doing well and that we don't have any questi

I LOOOVE this place. The last 3 dogs I have had have been patients here and I am thoroughly ecstatic with the treatment they received. The doctors and staff truly love animals which provides for a much more caring environment than other veterinary clinics I have visited. I have had experience with almost all the doctors and have been pleased with the treatment my dogs received, even under very unpleasant situations. \n\nThe best part of this office is the large exotic bird that chills out in the payment area. They had to remodel the office filing system as the bird used to eat the patient files = awesome!\n\nIf you have a pet and reside near by, I highly recommend this practice.

I stumbled upon ABC Veterinary Hospital about three years ago when I first moved to San Diego and had adopted my Maine Coon Maggie! I had had some really terrible experiences at a few other vets and when I walked through the doors at ABC I was so excited to finally be among passionate animal lovers who are there to help! You'd think most vets are great with animals, but I realized prior to visiting ABC thats not the case.\nBut long story short I've been happy with my service ever since and will forever be a loyal customer for both my cats Maggie and Pinky! One Dr in particular stands out however, as I've had to come in on short notice a few times and have dealt with a few of the Dr's there, Dr Jonathan Hansche BY FAR is one the best! He's always attentive and listens to questions and concerns and just overall makes you feel at ease when your pets are in despair. The entire staff is great though and I have not had one complaint thus far!\nTHANKS ABC VET (you actually treated my cat Pinky today, and my boyfriend Bill & I want to thank you for getting her back home on the road to being in good health :)

We were referred to ABC vet and Dr. Martin. We have had only one visit so far but it was everything we were told it would be. We really like Dr. Martin and the way he was gentle with our Belle who is actually very hesitant around men. We like the way we get an estimate prior to any treatment being performed so we know what we are up against. We actually broke the treatments Belle needed in 2 appointments so it would be easier to afford. Dr Martin spent a good amount of time with us and allowed us to ask as many questions as we needed to. We were very happy with our first visit. The follow up phone call by Dr. Martin was extremely appreciated and great customer service. Better than what we get when we go to our doctors. Thank you Dr Martin and ABC Vet Staff....You are all Great!

Just another super-commercial enterprise. I am an overly diligent animal owner so was concerned when my dog had a rquestionable looking stool. The "estimator' brought in a copy of the "estimated" costs to me after the vet had merely talked with me about my dog-no testing had been done. I was told that those listed were the costs in general (nearly $450.00) but after they had looked at the test results of the fecal sample they would eliminate the costs that were not pertinent. Well, they couldn't find anything wrong with her but nevertheless I got to bring home some drops and pills and I also got to pay the whole original estimated price, as apparently everything was "necessary" The worst part was that they gave me medicine to take home that had the wrong label and instructions and didn't give me another one I had paid for! Steer clear of this horrible place!!!

My family has been taking our pets to ABC for years and we've always been happy with the treatment we've received from the vets and staff. I credit Dr. Hansche with saving the life of my 13 yo feral cat when she was diagnosed with intestinal lymphoma, in addition to her pre-existing heart and kidney conditions. This same cat is alive and doing well and far past her original prognosis. She used to be so frightened of the vet. Now, whenever she sees Dr. Hansche, she starts to purr. He has also taken excellent care of our pug, catching a liver shunt almost by accident. No vets office is perfect, but I don't care how far I have to drive, ABC is the only place I trust to take my pets to.

While I no longer have pets, I patronized ABC Vets in San Marcos for a number of years and saw several different vets. In that time, I found only one whom I felt had an attitude of perhaps not caring, or perhaps burned out? That vet eventually left.

Towards the later years of my cat's life I saw Dr. Martin and found him absolutely wonderful! He gave me both minimal conservative approaches and more extensive (and expensive) approaches for care for my cat; the decision was ultimately up to me, as it would be, I feel, for any owner. He was willing to spend time explaining things, more than once, and taking a good history. I also saw a woman vet whom I believe was Dr. Martin's wife (?) and she was absolutely wonderful. I'm sure over the years I also saw Dr. Neichen at times and I had no qualms.

I feel care of a pet is ultimately up to the owner; a vet can tell you what to do, or what they would do if it were their pet, but ultimately it is YOUR pet and YOUR decision. Some people also do not want to hear "the worst" or bad things, but face it, things like that happen. If a vet on their staff told me, "this is the way it is," I understood it was coming from their experience (and perhaps differences in "beside manner").

To some people, money is no object when it comes to their pets. Others, it does make a different. Vet care, as well as human care, is expensive. Only the individual can decide what is right for them.

I have taken my pets to a lot of vets in the past 30 years and Dr. Martin and ABC is the best ever! They actually remember your name and your pet when you come in. They are great! They follow up with personal phone calls after your visits too! Just awesome! AND I don't know where some of the people who wrote reviews have gone to before but this is the least expensive vet I have EVER gone to! I have tried several in North County and these guys are OUTSTANDING! and quality vet service!

I worked at a veterinary hospital for 8 years prior to taking my pets to ABC. I have very high expectations, and I have not been let down. Dr. Martin is wonderful with my rats and mice. The staff is friendly, prompt, considerate and tactful. The facility is spotless, smells nice and has plenty of information in the lobby. The prices are reasonable as well. I also like that the staff ALWAYS calls to check on my pets after an office visit or surgery. The comments that some people make about them "pushing" diagnostics and making a profit off their pets suffering are comments from people who are ignorant to the animal medical field. Diagnostics allow the vet staff to better treat your pet and can safe your money and your pets life in the long run. And about the profit: most animal hospitals make no more than 10 % profit on all of their revenue, which goes into purchasing new up to date equipment. Next time you go to the vet take a look in the parking lot. Do you see any BMWs or Lexus? Probably not.

11 yr old Cat goes in for gland surgery and they say at the same time we recommend teeth cleaning, etc while they have her sedated. Surgery appears to go OK, cat comes home, they inform us she has kidney count that indicates chronic kidney disease (most cats eventually die from this, not unusual in 11 yr old cat). While she is still in recovery they advise yet one more bloood test, change her diet..mis informing me of how to transition to new food (receptionist told me one day transition), and all along they were sedating my cat for each follow up treatment without informing me that is a stress for older cats with high kidney values. The cat goes from 6 days out of surgery with her old food bouncing around, running for treats (even with the big cone on) to post food change, 2nd or 3rd anesthia for routing tests on her deathbed, and the vet telling me I better start to consider humanely ending her life....wowl Needless to say if that is what we have to do it will not happen at this place. The receptionists always look like they have too much time on their hands...talking and laughing about their personal issues whey you are in waiting room with terminal cat on your hands..not professional or respectul. Even on the way out after they recommended euthanasia they tried to sell me an $80 food supplement. For what food is this supposed to supplement I asked. After the receptionist went into the back and came out they admitted it was not needed....I am so heartbroken and disgusted at this place. BEWARE. If you animal can survive the choas and over selling of this place, god bless them, but if they are older animals I would definately stay clear. By the way after further research I have found that there are several don't when it comes to cats with high kidney values..Dont\n-over stress them with change in diet during surgical procedures. Eating anything is better than nothing.\n-putting a cat out by gas is stressful on the cat and its bloood flow - yes bad for kidney disease.\n-in older cats dont take the chance of deep cleaning teach during other surgical procedures before kidney values have been confirmed as normal. If a mistake is made by a tech with minimum experience and cat gets infection in mouth with high kidney values....she may be a gonner.\nAll of these best practices were ignored by ABC...2000 dollars later...two weeks later...on terminal cat later.\n\n

If a mistake is made by a tech with minimum experience and cat gets infection in mouth with high kidney values....she may be a gonner.\nAll of these best practices were ignored by ABC...2000 dollars later...two weeks later...on terminal cat later.\n\n

Pros: there have flexible hours 7 days a week

Cons: too many to count

I LOVE this place. The veterinarians are awesome. Dr Martin is by far one of the best doctors I have ever had. (including people doctors). The pricing is fair. I am always presented a quote and I have a hand in deciding what is best for my pets.

I've been going to ABC for about 1 and a half years, and I initially thought very highly of them. Now I am searching for a better clinic. The office staff, save for one person who does the b-work and gives shots, is composed of unhappy-looking girls with snarky attitudes, all of whom need serious customer service training. The vet was not much better. After an initial exam and my explanation for the visit, she immediately suggested the most expensive course of action. She never once gave any indication of what might be causing the cat's mild coughing, she just presented the procedures she recommended, never once explaining why, and then left to have some poor, ill-equipped girl to present the costs of the diagnostic procedures. When I asked for explanations for these procedures, the vet returned, staring at me coldly, appearing to be barely able to contain her disdain and impatience that I had dared to ask for explanations and about possible causes of the cough. It was like pulling teach to get her to tell me what each proposed procedure would indicate and what were the alternatives.\nIt cost $150 for the exam, some b-work and an anti-inflammatory shot. The vet recommended procedures that were closer to $500.\nIn short, no resolution to the cough, no helpful service, snippy little girls as office staff, a non-communicative vet more interested in expensive diagnostic procedures than in considering and communicating all possibilities and options. FIND A BETTER VET.

Pros: clean

Cons: customer care, attitude of staff, approach to patients, cost

This Vet is totally outrageous on prices. He charged $364 for an office visit and one antibiotic injection. The office staff are totally incompetent (except when charging) and the Vet techs must be paid on commission pushing tests that were totally unnecessary. DO NOT USE THIS VET

I have been going to ABC san Marcos for almost 15 years. I currently have 2 bulldogs. Dr Martin is just amazing with my bulldogs. My dogs actually like going to the vet. Dr Martin makes it fun for them. When my girl bulldog Uma became very ill, and almost died, everyone at ABC was so helpful, and they did everything they had to, to save her, and they did. Anyone who has a bulldog knows how they can get sick and how fragile they really are. I would recommend any bully owner to bring there bully's to ABC.

We recently had to look for a vet that would treat our rats and found ABC. They were so great that when my 16 year old cat started getting sick, we went back. They're a quite a dive for us, but worth it. Rocky gets scared going to the vet and is very shy, but not with the people at ABC! My only problem is that we still haven't figured out what is wrong with him. I would definitely take any of my animals to ABC before I went anywhere else!

I moved away from ABC Vets two years ago. Recently I had to rush my dog to a new vet where I live now. Immediately I knew the vets were not like ABC. When I needed to bring my dog to ABC he would walk into the office I would not have to drag him. My dog would not become nervous until we got into the exam room. With the new vet as soon as I opened the door to the vets?? office my dog freaked out. ABC vets and staff are extremely warm and friendly.

After asking friends what veterinarians they'd recommend, ABC Vets was their response. We took our senior dog and cat to the San Marcos hospital and they are simply the best! They're very professional, courteous and willing to spend time with us to explain; we think we're getting the best medical care possible for our pets.

If only we could find doctors like this for people.

This is a very nice, clean and friendly place to take your pet. Everytime I have taken my dog or cat there I have not had to wait that long to see the Dr. There is a nice kids area for little ones to play while you wait. My kids love to take our pets here.

We just loved everyone at ABC Vets from the first day we went there. Everyone is friendly, they are great with the animals, and they have a nice little area for the kids to play in while waiting. I was very pleased to find out when our hamster was sick that they treated hamsters as well. The Vet we saw was very helpful with my kids regarding their sick hamster.

A very nice staff with reasonable prices. I called around for pricing on declawing and spaying my cat and they were among the best. When the time comes, this is where my cat will go.
