Though the ad material says VCA Highland's main priority is our pets' health, it's very clear that VCA's main priority is making money. Though it has had some good veterinarians through the years, I see no reason to go there now that Dr. Mask has retired.
I took a Great Pyrenees, a working dog, in for a neuter and got talked into a more expensive version that, it turns out, is primarily for show dogs. It was not presented to me as an "appearance" thing but rather a health enhancer. Guess what? Only dog I've ever had, and I've had dogs for 55 years, who has had repeated problems with a neuter!
And then there was my ailing, elderly cat. I got talked into a senior wellness check to the tune of hundreds of dollars. This wellness check apparently showed nothing, or at least that was what the veterinarian, Dawn somebody, said. And as soon as I had spent the money, she was no longer interested in my cat's health problems at all. Wellness check said he was fine, so that was that. My cat died of hyperthyroidism within the year.
I have no desire to further enrich a vet practice that does substandard work and cares only about money.
