I'm one of those "over protective" dog owners who takes their responsibility for their pet's health very seriously.
When I first got my dogs I went all over town(s) looking for a good vet. I discovered that a good vet isn't always easy to come by. Some places I got lost in the crowd of people in the waiting room, some places were super expensive, and some vets didn't even allow the owner of the pet in the examination room at all! Not on my watch!
Upon my first arrival at Alton Main I was reassured by the competency of the doctors and the openness of their practice so I decided this is a place I'd trust with my dogs health (life).
Now, I take my dogs there for their checkups, when they get sick or injured and for their annual teeth cleaning.
All the doctors there are very knowledgeable about their practice and have earned my trust by continually "fixing up" my dogs.

Dr Shim is now the only Vet in Orange Cnty that I'd trust with the care of my animals. He is knowledgable, gentle, caring, and concerned with not only the health of my cats but also with the cost of caring for them. He and his team are excellent practictioners. I now take my pets to Alton Main for their annual shot regimens, their baths, flea treatments, food, and emergency care. Recently, one of my older cats was suffering from the lingering effects of a kidney disease. Dr Shim ran a series of tests that uncovered an additional problem - and the animal is now receiving treatment for a thyroid condition that had gone undetected by their former Vet. The prognosis for her recovery is good. I am very grateful for Dr Shim's attention to details and his insistence on thoroughness.

I recently got a new little puppy and being a first time dog owner I didn't really know where to start! A friend told me about Alton Main Animal Hospital, and how she's been taking her pets there religiously for years so I figured I'd take her advise. I'm glad I did. I called and scheduled my first appointment and the receptionist was and helpful. Once I got there I felt welcomed and like they were expecting me. Dr. Shim was unbelievably informative and I felt like he understood exactly what I was going through as a first time pet owner. He has wonderful bedside manner, and he answered my long list of questions with great patience and care. He told me exactly what my puppy needed and we got him on track with vaccines and all of his puppy care. I definately recommend Dr. Shim and will take my puppy to him for all of his medical needs.

This place is horrible. They claim to set appointments but really don't so you have to sit and wait. Besides one of the receptionists, no one including the veterinarians come off as happy. Worst of all they lost my cat's medical record file. If you truly care about your pet, don't bring them here.

Business Response:

We are truely sorry for your experience with us. Dr.Moon and Dr.Zuniga are known as good and thorough doctors. They spend enough time on each patients and try to explain very thoroughly and kindly. Somtimes it make other clients wait a little bit. If you visit again, you won't regret it. Thank you.

My guinea pig was having difficulties with breathing. I took him to this animal hospital. The vet placed him in an oxygen tank so he can regain his strength. My guinea pig lived longer than expected. I thank them for giving my rodent a second chance.
