Absolutely outstanding vet practice
I adopted a kitten years ago and after he was full grown, he was diagnosed with kideney issues and possible renal failure. I had a vet from the time I brought him home, it appeared to have been a genetic condition. Once we noticed some problems, my wife and I took him to our vet in Point Loma and while we had decent service, we paid for Ringers solution, medications, needles and everything else from the clinic who would not allow us to search for better prices online. Their staff was only somewhat friendly and the service was pretty abrupt each visit.
We heard about Rancho San Carlos and it took about 3 minutes in the office on our first visit to make a switch. ""Dr. Jeff"" (Rey) and his wife are extremely caring and considerate and were willing to listen to our ideas and answer all of our questions. The staff is courteous and very nice, the facility is clean and well-maintained.
Dr. Jeff wrote prescritptions for medicine and medical supplies to allowed us to shop online and even encouraged it, knowing that would mean less money to his office. This allowed us to continue to give subcutaneous fluid to our cat and his shots as well. Dr. Jeff even went so far as to ask us to provide website information for the best prices for these and other supplies, so he could pass this information on to other pet-owners.
When we got a dog, we knew where to take him for vet care. We own a greyhound, which is a specialized animal in terms of needs and care. Dr. Jeff took the time to learn more than his already extensive knowledge about the breed to better help us care for him.
Boarding costs are reasonable and the staff takes good care of the animals. Medications are about average from what I have noted, when comparing to our other vet. Good hours, good location and fairly easy to get a reasonable appointment. I would recommend this clinic to anyone!
