They have CARED for our dogs from puppyhood to the golden years, from routine care to mystery illness. My older dogs have lived longer, happier, and healthier than expected, and are always happy to walk in here. My puppies always get a great start in life. Dr. Buchinger has treated our family's pets before she ever came here, and the other vets have all been great when we see them. The staff is friendly and helpful--even more important, our shy dogs go to them happily!

My husband and I were using this Vet office for a few year for routine medical exams and vaccines for our 2 cats and 2 dogs. I have to say they are for the most part friendly doctors/ staff. Again for routine things. As we all know our loved animals do get sick from time to time. This is where this review gets really bad. I don't believe this office is equipped to deal with sick animals. My dog for example has allergies established for years now- a new vet in the office wants to start testing and changing my dogs diet/ life to re-discover what has already been established. This is frustrating to the owner cause its costs us lots of money and my dog to get more symptoms rather then just giving him the medicine he needs to live comfortable. In addition we brought out cat in for a frequent urinary tract infection- it took 3 weeks and a new vet for my cat to start to get treatment and medicine. This was the straw that broke the camels back for us. Some times re discovery isn't the best for on-going problems- holistic medicine and diet change are good but to let a cat suffer for 3 week pee-ing bl00d and very uncomfortable isn't right nor fair. I went to a new vet and have never looked back. FYI alameda doesn't do their own surgeries either they call in specialists. So keep these fun facts in mind when looking for a new vet. Also be prepared too once they have examined you pet if you have left him or her they do not talk to you in privet they tell you the results good or bad including treatment in the lobby in front of all other patients and they have no shame either. They hand off your animal and move on to the next dollar they can collect. Sometimes nice-ness doesn't account for good quality. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE ENCINA VETERINARY HOSPITAL!
They are a full hospital and they are fully equipped and fully staffed every day of the week. Plus they are affordable and highly knowledgeable too. Make the switch do some research.

After reading all of the reviews about this vet hospital and heard good things about it, and I need a vet as soon as possible because my dog just got injured on his knee. Since I got my appointment on the same day I called them, I took my dog there. I didn't get a chance to meet the vet at all. Only the assistant was seeing my dog. All they did is examined my dog and told me that here is some printout of the problem and told me to rest my dog. I didn't get anymore information at all. And they OVERCHARGE me for whole exam. I didn't know the exam is not including with eye exam also. So they charged me for the eye stain problems. I will never go back again. I felt like rush and didn't really felt that they cared about my dog!! They just there to get your MONEY!!!

This is a great veterinary clinic. I brought in my dog that I had adopted from a shelter and they were nice enough to give me a free medical exam. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable and the waiting room is clean. They are usually pretty busy so I suggest making appointments ahead of time. I moved from Alameda to Tracy,CA but I will continue to bring my dog here because I feel that the vets here are trustworthy and honest.

The vets are usually pretty busy. But when it is your turn for your pet's appt., they spend time w/ you. I have been going to them for the last seven yrs. I am pleased w/ their service. Clean offices. Clean waiting room. Front desk folks are pretty friendly.
