I recently moved to Aptos and was referred to Del Mar Pet Hospital by neighbors and friends. I'm very pleased (and have confidence in) the care my three dogs have received. Dr. Paula La Hue (one of several vets at the Hospital) is professional, committed to the animals' best interests and kind, as are her tech and the front office staff. I have also heard encouraging things about Dr. Molly Takebury from friends whose dogs are their children. \n\n

Our dealings with Jeanne Koploy and her Del Mar Pet Hospital were dire and ultimately fatal to our dog, and best friend, and so to save others from having their dog misdiagnosed and possibly dying (as was our case), we are making this post urging others to AVOID DEL MAR ANIMAL HOSPITAL AT ALL COSTS--to SAVE the life of your beloved pet, find a better and more experienced veterinary office.\n\nWe took Inky in with labored breathing, the day after having an attack where he slightly passed out (he had been having itchy allergy issues the week before.) We saw Dr. Jeanne Koploy, the owner of the Del Mar facility (for some 20 years we were told). Dr. Koploy looked over Inky, including listening to his heart, and then told us that he was having allergy issues; that he needed some teeth (molars) pulled, and his teeth cleaned; she surmised that between the allergies and the teeth (possible swelling), he was having trouble breathing. She prescribed an antihistamine, expressed his anal glands ($24), and sent us home with a written estimate for teeth cleaning. She did blood work, and assured us Inky's breathing was nothing serious, and he should be breathing better soon.\n\nInky's breathing got much worse overnight. We went back to Del Mar, and this time saw Dr. Molly Takabury. Dr. Tackabury instantly noticed a heart murmur and recommended X-rays. Two hours later she was telling us that Inky had fluid in the lungs due to congestive heart failure; she gave us the meds for CHF, and told us the next 72 hours would be crucial. She said to keep him inactive and get food and water down him. \n\nWe loved and stayed with Inky for the next 48 hours, (his breathing did get a little better) until he died in my arms, two days after leaving Del Mar. Dr. Takabury was very informative and did find what was wrong with Inky. Unfortunately due to the incompetence of the owner/managment, Dr. Koploy, we cannot recommend anyone take their pet(s) to Del Mar for any reason or to see any doctor in practice there. The antihistamine that Dr. Koploy wrongly prescribed for Inky causes breathing difficulties, and probably worsened his compromised lungs (fluid in his lungs, a secondary condition caused by his sudden onset CHF.). Rather than receiving the proper care from Dr. Koploy, our Inky probably lost his life faster than he should have!\n\nThis is a practice where the incompetent head doctor (owner) sent home a beloved family member with undiagnosed congestive heart failure, and instead, gave him a medication that worsened his already compromised breathing; not to mention an estimate for teeth clueing--a further $500 charge/profit for her business. Had Inky been treated with the proper meds 24 hours earlier than he had (when he first saw Dr. Koploy), he might still be alive today (we realize that no dog can actually be cured from CHF, but some live decent lives for up to a few years).\n\nPLEASE--join us in avoiding Del Mar Pet Hospital for any and all reasons. Our beloved family members deserve better and more accurate care than most of this hospital can provide.

Two weeks ago we lost our beloved cat Samantha. Through the loving care of Dr. Wilson and her staff Samantha lived to be 20 years old. She was six weeks old when Dr. Wilson started caring for her.
Thank you for taking such good care of her.

Dr Wilson is an amazing veterinarian! She combines excellent acupuncture skill with knowledge of chinese herbs, while up to date on every "western" veterinary approach you might need! She and the wonderful staff have made my big achy old dog feel and act young again! And this makes me young and happy as well.
