To start off with this place saved my dog's life when 2 other specialist hospital in san diego missed it.
1. Majority of the Er doctors I have years of experience & knowledge. They have helped me understand previous conditions that the other vet specalist hospitals never told me. There is one Er doctor that I am not found of there but the other out way him.
2. Sarit Dhupa, BVSc the surgeon is incredible knowledgeable. He is very understanding. I was impressed with him when he explained some things which made common scene.
3. Gregory Ogilvie, DVM is great. He was great as an internal med doctors. I have heard great things about him as a Oncology as well.
4. The back of the hospital (treating area) is very nice and clean. I like see clean area in hospital treating area. I have been in the back more then once.
5. They listen which helped as well.
One of my favorite is that the group of doctors work as a team. When I brought my dog back to the specialist, the whole group worked together to make a plan. Another good part is the doctors listen to me which was nice and helps diagnoses.
Again this place cost money which all specialist places do. Get your pet, pet insurance.

Please think twice before to take your pet to these... really don't know how to call them.I didn't do my research the way i was use to it when it was about my little Artemis, i was blinded by many factors and i did rush the whole process. I toke my pet to a second opinion to this place, for a none invasive procedure, they took her away for 15 minutes and long story short, my Artemis after two hours was dead. Please don't make the same mistake i made! At All time they lied to us, they tried to cover up their mistakes, at all time they cared only about the fees. At least if they would told us the truth so we would spent the last moments with her, but instead, again they lied and stole from us those last moments

I would think very carefully and do my research before taking my beloved animal to CVS. There are other specialty hospitals and emergency clinics in the San Diego and North County area that I feel are superior to CVS. I made the mistake of trusting CVS with the care of my dog and will regret this decision for the rest of my life. He had surgery and died the next day under suspicious circumstances while still in their care. My experience is that this facility demonstrates a lack of standards and professional practices that one would expect from a veterinary specialty hospital, especially one that charges such high fees. There is a general lack of communication within the staff, and between the staff and their clients, which leads me to conclude that they are a very poorly run facility. I find it hard to believe that they provide the best care possible for a sick or injured animal. It's too late for me to bring back my sweet dog, but maybe reading this will cause you to think twice.
Please explore your options before deciding to trust these people.

This vet is a RIP OFF! They over charge and gouge you, if you don't have the money they try to get you to finance it! How ridiculous? You won't get out of this place for under $1500 and your pet won't live afterwards anyway!

California Veterinary Specists is an outstanding facility. They are available at all hours. They take excellent care of your pet. I took my little dog there twice and she received excellent care. The staff is very friendly and compassionate. They provide a wide range of services for cats and dogs.

Dr Ogilvie cured my dog of cancer w/ his DHA treatment. Our 2 yr old dog came down w/ lymphoma and had a grapefruit sized tumor in his abdomen. When our dog was diagnosed, his prognosis was not very good but after a few months on Dr Ogilivie's treatment he was cured. It was amazing! I highly recommend this facility if your pet is diagnosed w/ cancer.

We've taken our dogs here a few times for emergencies. They've treated the dogs probably better than our regular vet. The first time, we had to leave our dog there to assess and treat his problem. When we picked him up, they had a 3 page, detailed running history with times for us on his symptoms, conditions, etc. They faxed the info to our regular vet for follow-up.
My Mom also had to take her dog there. He needed to be put down, (unfortunately), but the staff was right there with her and the dog the whole time, cried with her, and comforted her throughout the process. This was not the dog's regular vet, either.
I can't recommend these people highly enough.

My cat has been a patient here over the past few years. They are extremely competent veterinary practice for animals who need this type of vet (internal medicine specialists). The treatment program they recommended worked well and my cat is happy and about to turn 18.
