The love of my life LOLA was very ill in April and May. I had been to several other practices here in Albuquerque.
One practice lost Lola's labs, and had no record of my appointment or of Lola's visit. As Lola became sicker and stopped eating, playing with her ball and stopped greeting me with kisses and her howel of WELCOME, I became very concerned.
My family took Lola to her appointment to the "other" vet where the staff were rude and the owner stated Lola might have cancer and that it was too late, but gave her medicine without clinical cause.
After several appointments and not hearing back from the vet, Lola getting sicker and sicker, I panicked. Lola became so sick she was incontinent which she has never been. I called St. Francis at 10:00AM on a Saturday and was seen by Dr. Lee, DMV by 10:30 AM. I have to say the recieptionist was caring, pleasant and communicated my every question to Dr. Lee and was so very reasuring. When we got to the office, I could sense a calmness and in my mind if Lola was going to pass, I would feel I had done the best I could for my dearest friend and love of my life. Gladly, Lola has improved, her energy level is almost back to normal. I am once again receiving Howel greetings from Lola with even more jubilation then before.
Be aware that as with people medicine, medical records are to be kept regarding our pets health. When a Vet looses blood labs as in our case, your special furry friend is not recieving the best care and without you there as their advocate you could loose your pet. I will continue to go to St. Francis and know that Lola will be treated with the dignity and respect every pet deserves.
I have owned dogs all of my life and I'm a animal lover. I have been to the big vet groups and not one seemed that they were as interested in my pet as they were my wallet. This clinic is different and they do care more about the pet than any other I have been too. THe older vet is fabulous with my little friend and the assistants are great. Never am I sold unnecessary treatments but they do keep me up to date on the potential problems. That's not overselling, that's information Mt little friend actually loves the vet and doesn't have to forced inside. They do care about the pet and the expense. They are the most reasonable and caring clinic I have found.
Excellent Vet. they truly care so much for your animals, dogs & cats. We have lived here in New Mexico for a year and a half and always went to St Francis Animal Clinic. They are truly the best and I would not trade them for nothing. They can board animals too and it's the cheapest place to board. St. Francis is just all around there for animals. We love them.

After getting unnecessary treatment and a bill for a huge amount on a little dog i found in the dumpster. I went to St Francis and we were given wonderful care and walked out paying very little. Dont be suckered into paying for pet insurance when you can go here and get service like the good old days where people are honest.

We visited St. Francis after one of our cats hurt her paw. I'm always nervous about taking our animals to the vet for minor problems, since it had always meant a huge bill. Dr. Cage examined our cat, and she was awesome! Super nice, professional, and kind to our cat. I was concerned since our cat is behind on shots, but Dr. Cage addressed the problem without any pressure to have any additional (unnecessary) services done and was totally nonjudgmental. I was relieved and surprised that our vet visit plus antibiotics cost less than just an examination by our previous vet! Thanks to the wonderful staff at St. Francis and the affordable prices, I look forward to bringing the rest of our animals in for any services they may need! Thank you St. Francis!
