I had appointment to get my puppies ears done.
I could not go in to see the Dr I was told that he was too busy, and I just needed to leave her them letting her in from the door.
They did the paper work and took a payment from the window.
I did not feel comfortable but I thought I need to trust them, the are hospital.
I was waiting to be called to come to pick my puppy, but instead I got a call in the evening telling that my puppy had died in Dr Freitas routine care and I could not pick up my puppy's body since their were closing!
First I was told by Dr Freitas that he would pay me my cost but later changed his mind.
I had sign paper saying that I understand risks, even thought I was told that there were no risk since it was just a routine thing.
I WILL ALWAYS MISS HER! I LOVE YOU GIRL!
I only have her pictures, memories of sweet happy puppy full of life and everlasting sadness.

Dr. Frietas walked with me with eight dogs over a period of time. My last, best memory was when we had moved to Hayward and someone poisoned our Dobie. We came all the way back to Dr. Freitas. He peacefully helped our girl to cross over while we held her paws and loved her. He closed his office for 30 minutes so we could grieve alone.
This man remembers me when I stop for a visit 41 years later.
THIS IS ONE OF NO! THIS IS THE BEST VETERINARIANS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, MY DOG HAD CONTRACTED WORMS, I CALLED THE BIG PET STORES YOU KNOW WHO, THEY WANTED LIKE 80.00 TO SEE THE DOG AND ANOTHER 90 TO TREAT. STATING THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE WHAT TYPE OF WORMS BULLCRAP, ANYWAY LONG STORY SHORT I CALL CALIFORNIA PET HOSPITAL, MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOLLOWING DAY, PAID 20.00 DOLLARS PER ANIMAL, I HAVE 2, I ASKED THE OWNER THEY NEED TO ADVERTISE ON A LARGER SCALE, PLEASE HELP THEM OUT, THEY ARE THE BEST, STAFF IS EXTRA POLITE AND PROFESSIONAL, SO DO THEM JUSTICE TELL EVERYONE HOW DAM GOOD THEIR SERVICES ARE AND PRICES ARE UNHEARD OF!
I took my 10 week old a.p.b.t to get her ears cropped, and i have to say, when I first saw the neighborhood and the location, I was a little hesitant. It was old part of town and surrounded by some, let's say, "unsavory" characters. The building was old, and inside looked like a flashback from the 1950's. But, Dr. Freitas was very nice, with a gentle sense of humor and he did an exceptional job! I showed him a picture of how I wanted the ear crop to look and no problem. The next day I picked up my girl and she was perfect! I was very satisfied... no fuss, no hassel, just good old fashioned vet work.I would of given 5 stars if the location, and parking was better, but I can't complain. The prices for professional ear cropping here can't be beat! and come to think of it, the old building was sort of charming in it's own way. I can only imagine how nice the area was way back then.
