Very nice and knowledgeable staff. They are so good with my fur babies. Got my female in for surgery the same day after she tore her side open at the dog park.
I am a very long term customer having lived in Fair Oaks since approximately 1972 and started utilizing their services as soon as we found them. Sunset Animal Medical Center has saved my animals lives many times over the years and every vet I have seen is kind, caring, compassionate and exceptionally knowledgeable about my specific breeds of dogs and cats which is an amazing plus since they have genetic differences that don't apply to the average pet. The doctors and all staff Sunset AMC work together as a team very well to provide the best care for our pets. Its amazing to be able to see a vet in the evening or on the weekend if I'm not able to leave work during the day for a non emergency visit. The staff that work every shift are all knowledgeable and kind. They care for my pets just like they were their own and I wouldn't even consider going to another hospital with my dogs and cats. They also have boarding available which many people utilize. HIGHLY RECOMMEND SUNSET AMC 4 ALL!
My family had two older pets. One needed to be put down last year - The vet came to our home and the entire experience was very calm and peaceful.Unexpectedly, my .cat got sick in October. I was shocked that the Doctor called me to follow up on how Daisy was doing, and when she wasn't in, her staff called to follow up and answer questions. The doctor gave further suggestions and help on administering the medication. When we had to put down Daisy, they actually sent me a sympathy card signed by members of their staff. Very thoughtful. At all times the staff and doctors were professional and very compassionate. I Highly recommend them.
I do not recommend this vet at all. When I brought my cat in I thought I would be going to a "team hospital", but I was locked into just the one vet who origianally saw the pet. Everytime I tried to call to get advise or help I could not get help because the vet who saw my pet was not in. The vet is in 4 days out of 7, and woe is you if you need to contact them for help. I was treated like an outsider, as the one vet was the only one who would be able to help me. If I knew that they worked this way I would never have come there in the first place. Never before had I experienced this kind of service and treated this way. It is not a "team hospital" , but you have to pay another vet just to get another opinion. The vet also would not dismiss a rabie shot for my dying 17 year old cat with kidney disease, and said that he would still have to have his shots. They were Not considerate or helpful. I found them, as somebody else has noted, they are into your money and want only more money. Woe is you if you cannot afford two check ups a year with all kinds of tests, because they don t care if you are low income. They will not give advice if you haven't met their quota of office visits. I will never return again, and am sorry I ever came here. Left out in left field so many times. Find a better place, and there are better places for sure where people are kind, considerate, and most of all compassionate.
I have bounced from vet hospital to vet hospital in the Sacramento area for years. Some were ok some were down right horrible. I was refered to Dr Griffiths by a friend a couple of years ago. He and his staff have now saved the life of two of my pets. I can't say thank you enough. I have never meet kinder caring folks. The hospital is modern and the saff is very considerate and patient with all of our questions. I highly recommend Sunset Animal Medical Center.
We have found the staff to be compassionate and helpful. Fees are discussed fully before treatment and options are offered when available. The waiting area can get very busy at peak times, but that's to be expected with a practice this size.
I highly recommend Sunset Animal Medical Center.
Sunset has treated my sheltie for cushing's disease for many years. We had to let him go almost two years ago. Dr. Arbios helped us make that heart wretching decision. When she administered the injection she was visibily shaken, showing that she cares. After our loss we did get a long hair dachshund from a breeder that was very ill with pneumonia & kennel cough and Dr. Capon oversaw his care, I believe with all my heart that if it wasn't for her three months of care & concern he would have died. I do believe we have dealt with all the medical staff there at one time or another and would recommend this facility.
The front desk has issues, the check in and check out process leaves a lot to be desired. There has been times where my husband and I take seperate cars, so he can take the dogs (we now have two long hair dachshunds) home while I wait to check out.
I have recently moved to the area and needed a vet hospital for my 3 pets. Due to the exceptional reviews on this hospital I decided to give it a try. I was very unhappy with the service and client attention. It was like cattle, in and out as quickly as possible. No bedside manner, no smiles from the receptionist. It was like all they cared about was my money. They were reasonabily priced but they didnt take any time explaining their services or anything. I wasn't even asked about heartworm prevention or diet or behavior. I would not recommend this hospital.
We had a male staffordshire terrier and he began to have grand mal seizures. We called another vet and they said oh he will be alright just watch him. We did and then he had two more in a couple of weeks. We woke one morning on the 27th of November and he began to have them one right after the other. We had to go into sunset to say goodbye to this wonderful boy and be mericiful. He had severe brain damage and the vet that was on duty was Dr. Capon she is so wonderful she made all of us feel special and let us know that we were doing a loving thing for him and that he was going to a better place. We miss him but will always go to sunset vet because of the love the staff shows to everyone and we just got a new puppy and we took him there and they were great with him.
