My name is Stephanie Kenyon, and I am Dr. Kenyon's daughter as well as one of her technicians. It is a joy to work there and be able to help our client's pets whenever we can, whether we are helping them through an illness or keeping them healthy with preventative care. We care about your animals and want the best for them and you. Dr. Kenyon started her veterinary career in 1985, when she bought the Sanger Veterinary Hospital. She continues her education to this day, and if there is something that she doesn't know the answer to, she will find the answer for you (probably by consulting another doctor, lab technician, or anything that might contain the answer). We might be a small hospital, but what we lack in size we more than make up for with our loving hearts.

Regarding the review that said their 3 week old kitten was killed by Dr. Kenyon is inaccurate. First of all, Dr. Kenyon would never declaw a 3 week old kitten, a kitten has to be over 3 months of age before she will preform surgery. You also failed to mention that you did not bring the kitten back into us for the re-check. We always schedule a re-check about 2-3 days after surgery.

When you called the office and spoke with the receptionist, she informed you that Dr. Kenyon was not in the office at that moment. She then asked you if there was a number you could be reached at...You refused to give your number, so the secretary told you the time Dr. Kenyon would be back in the office and to call back then and speak with her. You never called back when the doctor was there, and would not give a call-back number. We can not be held accountable for negligence if we did not get the chance to see the cat again after it went home from the surgery. Which, by the way, the kitten was in good health when it was picked up.

What most people don't understand is that it's not necessarily the surgery that is the hardest part in the surgical process...but the aftercare can be equally as important and as dangerous. Especially in declaw surgeries. It critical for someone to monitor the cat very closely after a declaw. It can mean life or death if you do not properly care for the animal after it goes home, That means giving all of the medications on time, if scheduled for a re-check, be sure to be there, and also if you signs of infection or trouble after surgery, come back in and have Dr. Kenyon examine your pet. That way we can hopefully resolve the issue before it has a chance to do harm to your pet.

I think your review was unfair to Sanger Vet Hospital and also think it was wrong of you to write a review that didn't include all of the facts.

When it comes to the health and safety of your animal,, it's not just up to the veterinary staff at time of surgery. It is also up to the owner to care for their pet after surgery properly. If there seems to be a problem or sign of trouble with your pet, it's best to see a vet right away. There have been too many times when I have seen a dog or cat die or be put to sleep because they weren't taken to a vet soon enough.

want to assure everyone that we give 110% to your animals and their health. We think of animals as family, not just pets. I know my dog, Titan is my baby, and my pride and joy. Hope this was helpful and informative.

My name is Roxanne Gonzales, I live in Madera County. Now my cat is my world, my mom works at Sanger Vet now if the Dr. is so terrible like these ppl say she is, why did she give me my cat when my cat was 4 days old, She provided me with some T.L.C
I did EXACTLY what she told me to do, after she declawed my cat. She also mentioned to me they can not declaw cats at 3 weeks old. I have left my cats there over night and I must say Ms. Dr. Kenyon is the most HONEST, LOVING, SOFT, AND TENDER Doctor ever with these animals. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR TO ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY

This vet literally killed my 3 week old kitten. We took the kitten to this vet to get declawed, the paw became infected, we took the kitten to a new vet who opened her up to find that Sanger Vet had botched the declaw, cut the cat in the wrong place and caused an infection that grew into the kittens bones. The second vet said that she was 100% positive without a single doubt that the infection was caused by the surgery and that it was not performed correctly. We were given two options, pay $1,000 to remove the kitten??s entire leg ?? money that we did not have or put her down. We attempted to contact the Sanger Vet repeatedly to do emergency surgery even though it made my stomach knot up thinking of the type of care that poor kitten would receive. It was her only chance at living. Despite constant phone calls and urgent requests the vet never returned our call. We finally were forced to put the poor kitten down 2 days later after waiting for the vet to return the call. By the time she was put to sleep the infection had grown up the bone of her leg causing the entire leg to turn black. Not only did this vet FAIL to perform a relatively straight forward surgery, she inflicted unnecessary pain and injury that resulted in the DEATH of that poor kitten and she was so callous that she refused to even return a call concerning the kittens care. This is the only online post I??ve ever created and it is the first time that I??ve ever filed a lawsuit against any party. I cannot honestly believe that this happened and that this vet cared so little that she couldn??t even return a phone call.

I took my 10 wk. old blue male Great Dane puppy to the vet because his leg was sprained. This was my first time at this office so I wasn't sure what to expect. The staff was wonderful and Dr. Kenyon really did a nice job taking care of my puppy. She checked his leg to make sure it wasn't broken and gave him some medication for the sprain. My puppy was very comfortable at the Vet's office and enjoyed the attention that the staff and doctor gave him. The office was clean and they took extra precautions (such as using newspaper) to make sure that my puppy wouldn't be exposed to germs. Dr. Kenyon owns Great Danes and knows all about the breed, so I was glad that I selected this office. I would definitely recommend this Vet to others.

I just had to write a review after reading the other one posted. My Experience with Sanger Vet and the employees was nothing like what happened to the other person. My Dog Ally a border Collie was having seizures it was the first ever for us to experience It was very frightening. I called another Vet in town they suggested I drive my dog to Dinuba since they were closing in 15 mins. I called Sanger Vet and the receptionist after hearing what was going on said can you bring her in right away so Doc can see her..So off we went..When we arrived the receptionist said are you the one that called? and with a node of a head she said go in right away in that room she didn't ask about payment no paper work nothing just go in . I cant begin to tell you the Love and caring my Dog received from the staff and Doc Kitty. There was no slamming the dog on the steel table the assistant Jonathan picked up the dog and gently put her on that steel table even put a towel under her head then packed her with Ice to bring the fever down. The entire time he spoke to our dog in a claming voice and was rubbing her in a soothing way. When doc came in she asked us questions then she explained to us very professionally and in a down home country doc kind of way what was happing and what kind of tests needed to be run. Even when she drew blood she was talking to the dog letting the dog know what was going on and soothing her. You want a vet that is down Home and one that loves animals there is no other vet around as loving and compassionate as Doc Kitty. Turns out our dog has epilepsy. We get pills for her from doc sometimes I dont have the money for the pills and doc lets us have them on credit till we can pay..some times I might be a dollar short and the receptionist says I'll give you the dollar.. So if you read the other review please understand that what one might experience isnt always the way it is..plus you have to understand sometimes what mood people are in , plus what the animals behavior is. We are fortunate that our Border Collie is a calm loving dog..perhaps the other dog was unmanageable. Whatever the case my be..I will never forget everything Doc Kitty has done for us and would Highly recommend her to anyone. Oh and by the way that other Vet in Clovis that this person said was great...Not what I have heard from others...I am just grateful To Sanger Vet's Staff...Keep up the good work...

Pets are part of the family, right? Well, not necessarily here. My Lab/Greyhound had a mass in her abdomen. She's my baby girl, so I was fairly distraught. I actually watched the assistant grab my dogs feet in her 2 hands, and flip my dog on the steel table. My sweet girl's head bounced against the steel, and she cried out. The Dr had no problem with any of this. Fortunately, the mass was not cancerous, and it was removed and my girl was stitched up. The stitches came out that night as I awoke to my doh lying open and bleeding on the floor. She charged me for follow up staples! I'll never go back!
