    My dog was with them for heartworm treatment, and there are number of complaints I needed to point out and so I did, the vet reluctantly sent me away, saying they will refund and "you can start from the scratch" there are always pause between his explanation but straight forward when sending away the patient.

    I strongly advise you not to go there -whatever the problem is, sending away a patient with illness that might kill her, says that they are not competent and careless about your pet. Inexcusable.

    ps) specialized in dermatology? he couldn't even point out what was causing skin problem my dog had last year. All he gave me was antibiotics, and at the end, it costed me well over $1000 dollars. I visited 5 times for the same problem.
    Lack of knowledge.

    Wonderful place to go to take almost any pet. Friendly staff. Clean and reasonable costs. They also have late hours. Call for information they will help you with emergencies are just a pet check visit.

    It was the day before payday and my dog (a paitient for almost 9 years: not to mention we had already been clients for 4 years with other pets) got bitten by another dog. She had a huge gash over 4 inches long and DEEP, i felt she needed attention immediately. I rushed her over to vca, only to have them 1st talk money. I have NEVER not paid these people. Being day before payday I only had 200 of the over 400 they wanted and i asked if there was any way to give them what i had and bring the remainder of the money AS SOON AS THEY OPENED. They adamently refused to treat her until I assured them I would find a way to pay before they closed. That told me all I needed to know about thier priorities. Obviously not the patient or their owners. EVEN AFTER OVER 12 YEARS of good standing buisness. My pets are like family and I was very offended at thier lack of caring for my girl. Because of the severity of her injury I had to let her be treated there, it was the last time. If you love your pet like family, please don't go to ANY vca apparently that is company wide policy; payment 1st, pet car, far second.

    p.s. I guess I should have known better when after 9 years they couln't remember her name.

    We have used this Pet Doctor for a long time and found the service to be satisfactory when all you need is yearly shots and heart worm pills for you pet. However, as our pets got older and developed problems, we found it better to get a second opinion as we felt that these doctors didn't have the in depth knowledge of aging dogs. Front office staff is polite. It's usually easy to get an appointment quickly. Inoculation and heart worm pill prices are reasonable. They carry speciality food for pets, too.
