    Seriously,if you value your pet & your wallet stay away from this place & do your homework for a good honest animal hospita/vet. Look on the internet & look the complaints this company has ! I suspect that any positive reviews are posted by employees of VCA or pet owner who were extremely lucky. We were over charged & misinformed by them but were fortunate that we saw through them & cancelled surgery that was't needed -they also have a big push on uneeded dental work. We did our home work & are saving about $1500.00 from the VCA estimate. Take Care

    When my dogs were patients at this place, the Director was Dr. Rick Lungo. Dr. Mark Fosberg may have been second-in-command but I'm not certain of that.

    Rick Lungo and Mark Fosberg appear to be gone now; but many of the veterinarians who worked there, at that time, might still be there.

    I had very bad experiences with the majority of them, including Drs. Lungo and Fosberg.

    In my opinion, these veterinarians are horrible.

    I recently moved away from Spokane, Washington, to another state. However, while I lived in Spokane, I foolishly went to these vets for a couple of years.

    They seem to be only in it for the money. They see way too many animals, more than they can handle.

    They also try to push you into unnecessary procedures and surgeries.

    Every time that I boarded my dogs there, my dogs were extremely thirsty and absolutely desperate to go to the bathroom, when I picked them up.

    My one dog urgently needed surgery. I wanted to make payments; but these vets insisted that I come up with the huge surgery fees (in one lump sum), before they would do the surgery. When I said that it would take many months for me to save up the lump sum, they did not change their minds.

    I found another vet, who did the surgery for one-half the price and who allowed me to make monthly payments.

    I took my dogs to North Division Animal Medical Center's groomers. Their groomer called me and said that one of my dogs needed to be given a tranquilizer, because he was refusing to allow them to finish grooming him.

    When I arrived at their place of business, my poor dog was in agony and was covered all over his body with razor burns! I took my dog home; but then, I went back to the animal medical center, to complain.

    I did bring my dog back with me and had one of their vets examine him.

    When I complained to another of the North Division Animal Medical Center's veterinarians about their groomer injuring my dog, the vet said that my dog had been "just fine" (when my dog left their property) and that I must have GIVEN my dog the razor burns, when I arrived back home!

    Both of my dogs had surgery that was done by these vets. Each dog was given insufficient pain medicine and was in horrible pain.

    When I asked veterinarian Rick Lungo for more pain medication, he said that my dogs were NOT in pain and that they were just "talking" and "making a bid for attention." He refused to give my dogs any extra pain medication.

    I had another surgery done by one of their veterinarians, because that vet misdiagnosed my dog and said that the surgery needed to be done as soon as possible. After the expensive (and painful) surgery was done, I found out that my dog never even needed the surgery!

    These vets made me pay FULL PRICE for the unnecessary surgery!

    Some friends of mine, who were their clients, were fired (and told to find another vet) for complaining too much and "for asking too many questions"!

    My friends were told that the vets were "TOO BUSY" to answer questions or complaints about the veterinary care of their dogs.

    On another occasion, their vets tried to talk me into doing a completely unnecessary, elective surgery on one of my dogs. This time, I was smart enough to refuse.

    These vets overcharge and "nickle-and-dime" you to death.

    I finally wised up and found some wonderful vets, who took great care of my dogs and charged reasonable prices.

    These (Spokane-area) North Division Animal Medical Center veterinarians are beyond terrible!

    I heard that this place is even worse now (as of November 2011).

    If you want to be greatly over-charged for neglect, cruelty, indifference, greed and incompetence, be sure to use this animal medical center!

    I must say i totally and completely disagree with the before mentioned post. I have had nothing but the best experience with VCA North division animal medical center, I have 4 pets that all go to this clinic and have boarded there. I thought the staff did a great job taking care of my babies ( because thats what they are!) i toured the facility with a kennel guy and found it to be clean and all the animals seemed happy there . The staff was also very friendly and professional. I am sorry that person had a bad experience but i definately would recommend North Division Animal Medical Center to anyone with pets

    This business should be out of business. There is no supervision of the dogs, they are running in the office & in the exam room too. I left my dog there for teeth cleaning, they put him to sleep & he was listluss for a week. There is no real place to exercise him, they walk him on a leash for 15 minutes 2 times a day, then he sits in a little kennel that should hold a 8# dog, not my lab. They were rude, over priced for the service & dangerous to your dogs well being. I would never go there again & never recommend it to anyone. Stay away from this business.
    Your beloved pet will come back very calm with all the medicine they give to the pets. It's a crime to put animals to sleep just to keep them quiet. That Dangerous.

    They will treat rabbits and other exotic pets here! The vets are knowledgeable and caring. Yes, it can be a bit expensive, but I think worth very penny when you know that the vets and staff care and do their best.
