We brought our eight year old dog to Adobe's emergency hospital with breathing difficulty. He spent five days there, each day with an "improving" diagnosis. The evening before he died there, the vet said he has really improved and his vital signs look great. To us he looked almost comatose, poor thing. They led us on this horrible five day path of poor judgement and misinformation. Having a different vet looking after him each day wasn't good either.

$8,100.00 was our bill! And for a dead dog. Adobe has 24 vets, all part-time and many unqualified. They encouraged cremation right after his death and I had regretfully agreed. That made it impossible to have an independent autopsy performed and no way for a lawsuit.

My friend's retriever's gut split open at a poorly sutured spaying shortly after bringing her home and they wanted to charge her to fix the problem that was their fault!

My new puppies go to Dr. Natt at Serra Vet Hospital on Fremont Ave in Sunnyvale. I have nothing but praise for his professionalism and the whole staff's incredible compassion for people's pets.

STAY AWAY FROM ADOBE!!!!!!!

We had gone to Adobe Animal Hospital during the era of Dr. Berg. Once Dr. Berg retired things really changed!! They are simply a money-making operation now and the personal touch is gone. It is kind of like a vetinary factory now.

Adobe Animal Hospital is the worst, they worked us for every buck they could get, (with no help for the dog) and when they sensed that we where out of money (-$2500) they pulled a dump and run.
leaving me and my pet to start the process all over
this is a terrible place for pets and their owners alike

I have cats. Way back when, they really were great, but the last few years, not so much. I had an appointment on a week day, during the day. When I got there they said I didn't but they would get me in. I waited an hour. Then just before I went back they told me they had decided not to charge me the emergency price. What!? There reception person was the one who made the mistake!

So we go back and they look over my poor cat. The Vet grabs a swab from her ears and leaves to do some test. Turns out it was test they did six months ago. It would have been almost impossible for an indoor-only cat to get ear mites in six months. They charged me 27 bucks for no reason. They forgot to clip her nails and the vet left without saying goodbye, or letting me ask questions. I sat for ten mins before a tech asked if I needed help getting out. I didn't know I was done! I went to pay then found out about what test it was and how much they charged me. My furballs deserve better!

I've been a client at Adobe since 1982, and when I first started taking my dogs there, it was a fantastic place and one I could count on for top notch care. Over the past year or so, I've seen a big change here, since I would say it was purchased by four of the practicing 'Vets there. It appears to me that the vets there are trained to get as much money out each client as possible. For example, I took my twelve year old terrier in two months ago as he had stopped eating the previous day, and was told to leave him, the projected cost would be between six hundred and nine hundred dollars, the lower price if no complications. After i left him on a Friday, i found out another vet would be taking over Saturday, which is the day I picked him up. Initially, I was told they had ruled out a number of things, and it appeared to be a urinary tract infection, and sent him home with meds. The total cost was $1006.00. What the hell? For a urinary tract infection? Also I noticed they gave him two injections of insulin, as he is diabetic, at a cost of $16.50 per injection. It costs me a total of $36.00 for an entire vial of insulin, which probably lasts a month. month later I took another one of my dogs in for a thyroid test, and the estimate was between three hundred and three hundred fifty dollars. This time I was told I would have to leave a three hundred dollar deposit, i asked about this, and was told it was the practice now. I've always paid my account, this was an insult and I did not pay the deposit, but did pay them the total bill when I picked up my dog. I drive all the way from Milpitas to have my animals treated there, but I'll tell you one thing, not anymore.

I have had many animals and have gone to many clinics including UC Davis. This is the best experience that I have EVER had. Dr, Roos treated an ear infection on my Golden AND my German Shepard. After I took my German Shepard to 3 different vets (all with over 400 dollar price tags) Dr. Roos quickly cleared up the problem. With my Golden, expensive hip surgery was recommended by one vet and Dr. Roos took a great deal of time, diagnosed properly and did a elbow surgery that was reasonable and competent. He still calls us periodically to check on the dogs. I didnt have the experience that others described with hihg bills. With 3 dogs, he doesnt charge us for each office visit when I bring more than one and he is careful about saving us money. He is a fanatic about keeping your dog slender (for good reason) and helps you make good diet regimens based on your dog. Go, you really won't be disappointed.

I have had pets for decades, parrots, chameleons, geckos, fish, snakes, a cat and several dogs. I have also participated in rescue for pure breeds. Jane has always been a great hands on vet. Their prices are reasonable in comparison to other vets and I have checked. She cares about the pet and their quality of life, unfortunately I haven't come across that many time in my lifetime. Jane is a jewel and I dread the day she retires. We lost our Newf to kidney failure last Christmas (we knew it was going to happen fast when it did) they were thoughtful and respected what we had to say and what was best for our beloved pet you cannot ask for much more.

I was incredibly shocked and dismayed by my experience at Adobe in general, and especially with Dr. Jane Johnson. During a physical, she did a blood panel for our cat. She called us about the results, but neglected to inform us that our cat's blood glucose level was 438 mg/dl (I am reading that number straight off the report we later received!). Note, this was a "fasting" blood panel, and our cat had never had a blood glucose level higher than 150 in the past(The normal range for blood glucose is 70-140 mg/dl in a cat). She also did not mention that his blood urea nitrogen was 75 mg/dl. I simply cannot believe someone who is an experienced medical professional would fail to even mention these extreme outlier results. We had no idea our cat had diabetes and she didn't even mention the possibility of it!! To me, that is negligence. We only found out just how extreme his blood values were when we requested copies of the blood test a week later. All she told us over the phone was that his blood glucose was slightly high, and she suggested our cat was probably just agitated during his visit, and that it wasn't anything to be concerned about! Due to her failure to correctly interpret the blood test results, our cat went into a diabetic coma about a week later, due to his undiagnosed diabetes and resulting ketoacidosis, and we had to rush him in for emergency treatment and extended hospitalization that cost over $2,500. Of course, Adobe did not offer to compensate us for a problem that could have been treated at considerably less expense and with a considerably better outcome if it had simply been caught during the initial screening. Our cat never ended up recovering, and died, in spite of our having been told there was nothing seriously wrong with him. I would NEVER return to Adobe under any circumstances, and I have told all the pet-owners I know (and that is very many) to avoid Adobe and specifically Dr. Jane Johnson.

Thank you, Adobe. I have never before been faced with the task of euthanizing (how is this spelled?) a dying pet, but you helped me through this process with sympathy, respect, tact, and clear and helpful information. Thank you for helping me and Gwen through this painful process. Being able to sit with Gwen in the "Good-bye Room" was especially valuable. I feel that she was accorded the best death possible.

With all the good reviews written, I felt the need to write my own. Adobe is horrible with more uncommon animals (parrots, rabbits, reptiles, etc.) and I believe that all those people who disagree with me have never really been there before. Adobe = bad.

I have a sick goat in Cupertino. I call animal hospitals for help, and several refer me to Adobe Animal Hospital in Los Altos as my best bet. I call and am told by pharmacy staff that their vets don't see livestock. I am perplexed. I call some other vets, who again refer me to Adobe. I call back and get someone else who says they currently have doctors on duty who see goats. Since they have no appointments today, I can bring my goat in for an emergency visit. Alarm bells. Not sure what to do, whom to trust.

I have since heard some horror stories that are not my place to repeat, about mistakes made with goats and other animals, unexpectedly high prices of treatment, and given the quality of my telephonic interchanges, I have not much inclination to actually trust them with one of my animals.

I brought our rabbit in after she was paralyzed. No one really seemed to know why it happened, and there were certainly no rabbit experts there. We ended up driving her to Oakland VCA (GREAT place by the way). I don't know how great Adobe is with dogs and cats, but definitely not exotics or small animals....

I've taken my cats to Adobe for more than 7 years and they helped me through the deaths of both of them within a 10-day period last winter (one from kidney failure and one from cancer). If you have animals who are older or chronically ill, it's wonderful to have all of their records available day or night to whomever is on duty. And it's very reassuring that there IS always someone on duty there. One of my cats was hospitalized twice there during his life and he received excellent care in their intensive care ward, where I was able to visit him. No, it wasn't cheap, but I don't think it would have been any less anywhere else. If you want to take the best care of your sick pets that you can, it will never be cheap. The prescription costs have been much lower there than they were at my local vet (Adobe is half an hour away from where I live) and they have always seemed eager to help me save money, when possible. It just isn't always possible, when they need to do tests to try to figure out what's wrong with the animals, who, unfortunately, can't talk.

I have other friends who drive distances to take their cats to Adobe, too. Unlike smaller practices, there are lots of other doctors for the vets to consult if they want to get a second opinion. And having newer vet school grads along with the older ones means you can get vets with experience as well as ones who've been exposed to the newest in treatments. It IS a very busy place, but I know that and bring a book or magazines in case I have to wait. And feel grateful that my pet isn't the emergency that sometimes takes precedence. Dr. Boltz, Dr. Shandro, Dr. Nakamura, Dr. Elizabeth Rogers and Dr. Koga have all been great, as has vet tech Bryce and John at the reception desk. I've been back with new cats this summer and they've also gotten fine care.

Went there for many years, until they nearly killed my dog by giving her a medication known NEVER to be given to a dog with a heart murmur, which the vet joyfully announced prior to injecting her w/the drug. The dog (and possibly the vet, based on her inaccuracy) was comatose for 6 hours, and they said "just get her out in the parking lot and she'll be able to walk." Next day I contacted UC Davis, and they said they would NEVER use this drug on a dog with a heart murmur, period.

So many bad experiences - plus they do not have a SINGLE BOARD CERTIFIED surgeon on their staff of over 25 vets. That's a bit odd - many of them say they "specialize" in x, y, and z, but there are no board certified specialists or surgeons.

I suggest Sequoia Veterinary Hospital in Redwood City - excellent vets, board certified internist, and actual care past the quarterly $$ goal....

For the last few years, I have been taking all my pets to Adobe. They used to be fabulous, and many of the vets are still excellent. However, some of the front staff and some technicians leave a lot to be desired. They are rude and condescending. When a customer calls to complain about the treatment they have received from the staff, they are aggressive and insulting, and side completely with the employee.

My pet was diagnosed with cancer, and she had surgery and other procedures. I was extremely frustrated as I could not get anyone to speak to about the diagnosis, ask questions, or get information about the results of subsequent tests. How strange is it that I would want to ask questions about my pet's condition in these circumstaces? The vets and technicians at Adobe now return all calls within a narrow time window - between 6:00 and 7:00pm, which meant that I was playing "phone tag", and could not physically speak to anyone. I needed to make decisions about my pet's life and treatment, but that depended on the information I was seeking. I was abused verbally, and told that I was acting like a "prima donna", because I expected a prompt response from the vet, that they were all extremely busy, - and could not return my calls except later at night. I tried to explain that I have a job where I am often still working or in meetings until 8:30 at night, so it is very difficult for me to pick up the phone if I am in meetings or in conference, and that only led to more abuse, as they then assumed that I was "self important" and demanding special treatment. An obnoxious technician then said she also worked long hours, she had to wait when she took her own pet, etc etc, so I was being completely unreasonable. Although I had an ultrasound and an x-ray scheduled for my pet to determine whether the cancer had spread, I was told by someone that if I was that unhappy with their service, she would cancel the ultrasound and x-ray and I could take my pet elsewhere. Of course, I had already paid for the surgery to remove the tumor.

This abuse was directed to a grieving owner who has just found out her pet has cancer, and only because I was demanding information about the results of test and biopsies!! They need to remember that when a pet is seriously ill, the owner is upset, and this is not the time to abuse the owner. One of the people there even had the nerve to chastise me for having referred to a procedure as a "damn" procedure. The technician told me not to "swear" at her, and when I called to complain about this treaqtment, the person I spoke to further chastised me, saying that the procedure was not "damn", I should care more about my pet.

I will never go back to them, even if they are the only animal hospital within 500 miles. It is too bad, because they used to be much, much better, and I still like the three vets I had contact with throughout the ordeal. To all the people who sing their praises, my response is, in 2006 and previously, I was also one of those who was singing their praises, and I referred a lot of my friends there. They are completely different now.

My cat died after bringing him here. The doctor couldn't wait to give him anesthesia because she didn't have a clue how to treat/diagnose him. He was returned to me in a vegetative state and subsequently died. I incurred costs exceeding $5,000.00. Apparently, these vets are protected by the courts and our only recourse as consumers is small claims court. Don't take your animals here!

With all of the positive feedback I felt compelled to register with insiderpages just to let folks know it's not all roses at Adobe. I took a feral kitten to Adobe several years ago that was anemic and full of flees. The kitten was whisked away and it seemed to me all they cared about was what they could nail me for cost wise. They just took the kitten and did whatever they were going to do, without consulting me, and I was left in the lobby (to worry about the kitten)! I had to hassle the girl at the front desk to find out what in the heck was going on. I didn't like the way the kitten was handled at all (brought back to me sopping wet about the head and looking quite terrified) and the gal they had working the front counter at that time was rude and seemed pretty cold towards animals for somebody who CHOSE to work at a vet's office. Trust me, I'm not hard to please but I was left with the distinct feeling that it was all about making a buck at Adobe and not at all about truly helping the animals. I ended up taking the kitten somewhere else that felt less like an assembly line. I have since adopted 2 cats of my own and have been taking them to Pet's Friend Animal Clinic in Sunnyvale (off of Central and Wolfe). Now, that's a f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c facility. Over several visits over several years I can't think of one negative thing to report about Pet's Friend. The vets are always very friendly and very gentle with the cats. I'm never left in the lobby! Adobe was a HORRIBLE vet visit. Trust me - it's been about five or so years since I had the displeasure of their services and I still recall how terrible I thought they were - enough so that I felt compelled to WARN others - especially when I saw that others posted about the high cost (uh, didn't I say something about them seeming to only care about making a buck!?) so I know it isn't just me!

After five years, I'm finally giving up on Adobe Animal Hospital. As the other reviewers point out, this place is expensive. I took my dog in for a physical today and when I went to pay the bill it was $183! On the invoice was a $26 charge for an anal gland expression, which is normally included as part of a physical. When I asked the receptionist about this, she declared in a very condescending voice, "Well, pets are a luxury!" (By the way, groomers typically charge about $4 for this).

When I first started using Adobe five years ago, I alway felt good about the vets and didn't mind paying the extra money, but over the last year, I've had too many bad experiences and astronomical bills. I feel like they rush through appointments and run up a bill without informing you of the expenses and options.

I took my 12-year old dog in today for a physical with Denise Johnson. She did a whirlwind body check and seemed annoyed when I wanted to ask her questions. My dog lost one eye to glaucoma a couple years back, so I was shocked when she didn't even look at his eyes. (She obviously didn't read his records before the exam). She also failed to check his joints and knees, which I think is supposed to be standard for old dogs. What she did do was prescribe three medications for cleaning his ears (total cost > $100).

When I first started going to Adobe they did an amazing job, every day of every hour...the vets were experienced and caring and the staff was friendly and sincere. It didn't matter who you went to or what day it was, the experience was alway outstanding and I felt great paying the bill. Now it's hit or miss depending on how busy they are and who you see. Today's receptionist was particularly infuriating because she spoke to me in fake-sweet sort of way...if you're going to tell someone to shove it, saying it with a chipper voice and smug smile just makes it worse.

If you do use Adobe, I recommend that you go with a vet who's been there a long time and you book your appointment during non-rush hours. In the past, I've had great experiences with Dr. McKenzie, Dr. Maxwell, and Dr Jane Johnson. Note: there are two Dr Johnsons. I wound up with Denise Johnson today because I thought I was booking the appointment with Dr. Jane Johnson...so be careful to make sure you get the right vet.

I love this place--have been going there for years. I have always gotten very good, attentive service. The people there seem to be very caring and were very kind when I had to put my cat down. I love the fact that they are open 24 hours, so I could call for advice when my dog had a siezure at 5 a.m., or when I discovered my cat had an abcess one Memorial Day. It is always easy to get an appointment, but can be a bit of a madhouse when they are busy. I have been kept waiting in the treatment room for very long periods of time, which can be exasperating when you are cooped up with an anxious animal.

PROS: Well equipped hospital/pharmacy, open 24/7, easy to get in
CONS: Can get very busy with long waits possible

Everyone I've encounterd at Adobe is very caring and professional. Appointments are easy to schedule
and available early AM and weekends. Each time
we were there they remembered our dog and her problems.
They were realistic with their recommended treatment
plan and when she passed away their support was
again remarkably kind and caring.

My family has had three dogs go through Adobe over the last 20 years. The staff could not be any more caring or attentive to every critter who walks in the door. They are efficient, thorough, and have always shown genuine compassion and concern for my dogs. We wouldn't dream of taking them anywhere else!

Adobe has some wonderful vets and is well-equipped to handle almost all animal's situations, emergencies, as well as regular veterinarian check-ups. They have obedience training for puppies and can recommend almost anyone that is needed for certain special services. They have always been caring and helpful. We've used them for over 16 years for dogs, cats and hamsters.

We've taken all of our animals here with good results. They take good care of them. The one caveat I might add is that some of the vets do a lot of expensive tests an older, more experienced vet might not do. The result is on two occasions, I felt we spent a lot more on lab work than was necessary for minor problems. Since then, I just stick to making appointments with the vets I know. All the other times we've been there have been great. They have a great drop in service for shots (if your pet has had a physical there within the right amount of time) and if your dog gets a tick on it you can drop in and they'll take if off for you.

PROS: Good service, good hours
CONS: expensive

I've taken my dogs to Adobe with all sorts of problems from stepping in red ants to having a small rubber ball removed from the intestines. They do a good job of getting an animal patched up and back out doing what animals do best (which sometimes seems to be getting in trouble and going back to the hospital.) I wouldn?t recommend taking animals there for vaccinations or spaying or neutering. There are other places in town that have far better rates for that sort of thing.

PROS: Good place to get your pet patched up

How great is it to have an animal hospital that can provide 24x7 service so close to our home. I use Adobe for all of my dog's needs and have not yet had a vet there that was not friendly and competent. Their rates for emergency service are alittle higher than their standard rate, but hey, when you need that emergency care, does it really matter. I have found their rates for regular vet visits to be competitive for the area.

Just switched to Adobe within the last year. Great facility with all the newest technology and great hours for all of us working animal parents. In addition they have a 24 hour emergency clinic on-site. So should you have an after hours emergency you can take your pet to a place that has access to their medical records and most likely already know him/her.

In addtion, the front desk staff, technicians and doctors are absolutely wonderful, friendly and caring. Adobe doctors will do telephone consultations when you aren't quite sure whether you need an office visit or not. Other vets will give you the standard well you better just bring him in just so they can make money. Not Adobe. They know by providing the best customer service and experience for your pet your well tell everyone. LIKE I AM NOW.

PROS: Super convienent hours and very friendly and caring staff
CONS: Haven't a single one yet

I think Adobe is great. I've been taking my animals ther for years. The staff is awesome. I like the fact that they do evening and weekend appts and you can call and get advice at 11pm when your dog might might be sick. Also, if your dog becomes seriously ill, becasue they are a hospital, they have the medical equipment and lab right there, so you don't have to take them someplace for tests or specialized treatment that a regular vets office might not have. When my 18 year old dog was dying, they were very kind and sensitive discussing options.

We have taken our dog and two cats to Adobe for a couple of years now, and have always had good experiences with the different vets we've seen. Additionally, we seem to always have middle-of-the-night and weekend issues arise, so it's nice to have a place that doesn't charge extra for after-hours visits. To make up for it, you do pay more here than at other vets; but for the convenience and the quality of care, I'm happy to pay it.

My dog received very good and comprehensive care on his visits, but on every visit we had to wait a VERY LONG time just to get into the exam room or visitation area. It was also very expensive, as the vet insisted on extra x-rays, antibiotics, etc. The vet even sold us the same antibiotics (with same dosage) twice! Good care, but out of my price range.

PROS: Good care, large and modern facility
CONS: Very big, busy, different vets every visit, super expensive!

I used Adobe Animal Hospital for 7 years and was very happy with my vet (Dr. Koga). They are a 24 hour hospital which is great--- and they have a vet for everything.

However, recently, my dog acquired a yeast infection in his ear, and I wound up seeing Dr. Dave Roos, the owner of Adobe. Dr. Roos was rude, arrogant, unkind, and all in all, it was the worst veterinary experience of my life. He spent more time talking about his pilates, yoga, running, and how he looks 10 years younger than he is then he did touching or working with my dog. When the (VERY EXPENSIVE) medicine he perscribed didn't work on my dogs ears, and I asked if I could get another medicine he claimed "this medicine always works". On my 3rd visit, he claimed he couldn't see in my dogs ears cuz there was too much hair in his ears so I paid more money to knock my dog out and have his ears cleaned. Unfortunately, he only cleaned ONE ear and on my next visit, started yanking hair out of my dog's other sore ear-- in the lobby- while my dog yelped in pain. Both ears were infected to begin with, Needlesstosay, although I did like Adobe, I will never go back because unfortunately, all money ends up in Dr.Roos' pocket! Since, I've found an amazing vet (ELC in Sunnyvale- Dr.Kleiman) who also had to knock out my dog and clean his ears, but fixed him in a week.

PROS: Good staff, good vets avail, open 24hours
CONS: Owner is unkind- a very poor vet.

I've use Adobe for over 18 years for 2 of my cats. They provide great care. My cat is one very fidgety creature and they were able to make her comfortable enough for her examinations. My roomate also used them and her cat is a major hisser. They provided good care for my cat when she came down with a liver problem. The staff is very knowlegeable and courteous. Appointments run on time.

I've heard many good reviews about Adobe Animal Hospital in Los Altos, which made me bring my dog there. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the vet was very knowledge. I would say that the service is first class. However, you pay for the first class service. Consultation alone cost $50, while most other hospitals charge around $30 for consultation. For serious illness, I think the fees are well worth it.

I've heard many good reviews about Adobe Animal Hospital in Los Altos, which made me bring my dog there. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the vet was very knowledge. I would say that the service is first class. However, you pay for the first class service. Consultation alone cost $50, while most other hospitals charge around $30 for consultation. For serious illness, I think the fees are well worth it.
