Overall

We have been taking our pets to Dr. Gordon before he sold to VCA and had continued to use this facility and other vets on staff since they moved to this location. Several weeks ago I took both our dogs for their vaccinations. Our 2 year old german shepard mix had to receive multiple shots and questioned if this procedure was advisable. The option would have been to split the vaccinations between two visits. The female vet assured us it would be no problem and we went ahead with the procedure. A day and a half later our shepard was extremely sick with loose stool and vomiting. We made an appointment to bring him back to the vet. Upon our arrival the receptionist stated she "doubted it was the result of the vaccines since symptons would occur in two to three hours after the procedure". I wondered to myself when she became a vet! Anyway, we saw another vet and he informed us our dog indeed had a severe reaction to the vaccinations and he would have "never given him so many shots at once and our dog could have died". Since I was desperate and so afraid he could die we immediately spent another $<url removed> for his treatment. Three weeks later he is just now really getting back to normal. Finding a good vet is hard and I have paid more to keep using VCA Arroyo for what I considered piece of mind. No more, I am definitely going to find another vet! I can no longer recommend VCA Arroyo based on this last experience. I can tolerate higher prices, but I cannot tolerate incompetence!

Overall
does this vet even like animals??

Today I took my cat to this clinic to be checked, while waiting for the vet I ready many glowing pet memorials people had framed and given to Dr. Gordon. Dr. Heo who treated my cat however, acted like he didn't even like cats, not calling my cat by name, acting nervous when my cat squirmed when he tried to check his temperature and his heartbeat. He noticed a bruise on my cat's ear which I was very concerned about, but brushed it off like it was nothing. I also told him of various bizzare behaviors only when certain people are home, such as growling, shaking and hiding for hours on end and pooping where he is hiding. As a mommy to my sweet kitty I was panicked about the sudden change in temperament in my kitty in the last week (which changes during the day depending on who is home- one minute he is an active, purring, loving kitty and an hour later he is hiding and tense.) I addressed these concerns to the Dr. to which he said, "Cats are mysterious, we really don't know thier minds, I don't know what to tell you, maybe someone changed their perfume." He just kept telling me he had no clue why on earth my cat would be acting so terrified and that I should google a cat behaviorist on the internet. Needless to say, I was furious when I left and even asked if I could not pay since I was so unhappy with the indifferent way in which my pet and I were treated. The staff at the front desk however, were very sweet and understanding and listened to me intently and compassionately as I spoke of my disatisfaction with my experience with the vet. I have taken my cat to vets before farther away that you could tell actually have animals of their own and are vets because they love animals. I chose to come to VCA because it is closer to where I live, but from here on out, I will be sure to make the extra hike to a vet that really cares and doesn't just brush off my concerns and treats my cat with love and respect.

Overall
Great Animal Hospital Especially for Very Sick Pets!

Many people don't like the VCA chain however this hospital is the exception.

The staff is very caring and very attentive. I had a dog with kidney disease stay here for 3 days and the staff called me several times a day with updates.

The vet always returns my calls.

Also their prices on some items are cheaper than other area vets.

They have a holistic vet on staff - Dr. Gordon who I highly recommend as well as a pet nutritionist who did wonders for my dog's health.
