The best animal hospital in town. Dr. Terry Prescell, saved my dog! She is remarkable and a true animal lover. Their prices are very reasonable since they are an EMERGENCY FACILITY, they would be higher then a regular vet, after all your vet is not open all night! If your vet had to open at night for your emergency I bet it would be twice or maybe three times the amount that the Animal Emergency Clinic charges. I have 4 dogs and 2 birds, and I am so happy that the Animal Emergency Clinic is there for my "kids"

I had a WONDERFUL experience with this emergency clinic!The comments the person wrote about them "gouging" them is so ridiculous! All of her comments were, for that matter! The comments should be deleted! These people saved my dog's life when he was bitten by a rattlesnake. They were sincere and treated us kindly and most importantly knew what they were doing and helped my dog! Maybe the other person should look into pet insurance if she can't afford to take care of her dog! I will definitely go back to them if I have another pet emergency and I have already had friends go to them, as well, who were very pleased and grateful for their services!!

This place was amazing. We've had experience with two other animal emergency hospitals, and they were awful. This is a family-run business, and you can tell. I had to take my dog in the day after our first late-night visit because he wasn't improving, and they only charged me $35 for the second visit. They also called a couple of days later to check on his progress. Service above and beyond and priced MUCH better than any vet I've ever been to.

The people at the Poway Animal Emergency Clinic did a great job handling our pet emergency. They worked quickly and were able to get the situation under control right away. They were very professional as well as very kind to us. I have recommended them to friends.

We were referred to Poway Animal Emergency Clinic (by our vet's voicemail message) when our dog started having seizures late one night. The staff at the emergency clinic were thorough and professional. They ran several tests, prescribed treatment and referred us back to our primary vet the next day. They faxed the paperwork/reports to our vets office right away as well. We appreciated their efforts which resulted in great continuity of care for our dog.

My husband took our dog here after he got hit by a car. We were glad they were close by and open late hours of the night. They took good care of him and we were very comfortable and happy with their work. We would definitely take him back here if needed.

We had to take our dog here when she was in a serious accident and while the quality of the work itself was good, the doctors and staff seemed far more concerned with gouging us for all they could get under a very trying time rather than being understanding in a crisis. I felt like they were more interested in our bank balance than our dog.

Business Response:

I'm sorry you felt that way... we are not in the business of "gouging" clients. The reality is we cannot completely put aside the monetary issue when we are dealing with a serious patient and a great deal of treatment is going to have to be administered. Unfortunately, most emergency clinics have had the experience of treating many critical animals without dealing with any payment up front, only to be "stiffed" by the client! As for not being interested in the animals, I'm sure you saw in our waiting room the dozens and dozens of thank you cards and photos from appreciative clients who realize what a sacrafice our staff makes to work the hours that they do to HELP ANIMALS.
