I received a coupon from the Humane Society, which offered discount prices for neutering/spaying. A list of participating clinics was included on the coupon. I picked this clinic from the list because it was closest to where I lived.
I took my cat to be neutered, and after I went through the entire intake process and my cat was going into his operation, I went to check out with the desk, gave them my coupon to be told, ""Oh we don't take those coupons"". ""Well"" I said, ""You're clinic is named on the coupon, and the coupon doesn't expire for three more months, so why wouldn't you?"" ""Well, we just don't accept them anymore, we've been trying to get our name taken off the coupons, but we haven't had any luck"".
I don't have to go into much detail explaining why this is absurd, unethical and downright fraudulent do I? I wouldn't have even been there if it hadn't have been for the coupon, so basically I got suckered.

I took my dog there for several months, before that I had her with a different vet, she had something that no one really knew what was going on but she would not gain weight in fact she would drop and go into a weak state. The first vet I saw was very argumentative and really snotty to me. I saw another vet and he seemed more workable. My dog seemed to get better with some meds but went into this state again six weeks later, got sick again but in an even weaker state, took her back she was so weak and sick they said, without very expensive test that I cannot afford, they do not know what is happening. I felt she was suffering I asked that they put her to sleep and they would not. This was not something I wanted to do it tore me apart to even ask. I treated her with meds and special foods for a fourth or fifth time. She perked up a bit then got even sicker. Well I took her back an aide came in and told me that one of the staff had offered to adopt her in this way she would get the all the medical help she would need. I said I wanted to think a minute and talk with my son. I called him and he said what ever it takes to help her. I agreed but then the aide hemmed haud around stated she could not take her now due to her circumstances had changed and the other aide could not be reached. then why did they offer in the first place AND in writing? this was within the same hour or two I was there. I asked the girl up front about it and she tore up the contract said that was then not now with a really bad attitude. I asked that they put her to sleep then due to her state they would not agree told me to take her to the humane society if she was still ill the next day and treated me awful I asked for all her paperwork and the girl had attitude when giving it to me. I was so upset as we really did love this animal but could not stand to see what was happening to her. This dog should have had a healthy weight of 40lb and her weight had dropped to 22 lbs so she was nothing but bones and she could not adsorb her food. She got worse through the night diarrhea, throwing up even water, shaking could not stand, and so on it was breaking our hearts, I took her to the humane society they looked at her and her past vet care papers said they could not help and that I was doing the right thing for her at this point she was suffering. Said they could not believe the experience I had with this Companion Pet Clinic. She passed away just before Thanksgiving. Please if your pet has more to be done then shots or a check up do not take them there!

Comments : These people misdiagnosed my beloved junior with a herniated disk. I took him in four times. I saw three different vets.The last guy said the breathing problem was caused by he medication. I was unsure if he had even looked at the file. My dog just got worse. The last time I took him my dog died in the parking lot. I don't even know why. I went a few days later to talk to the vets about what happened. They wouldn't see me without charging me the office fee. Junior was my companion of nine years. A lab mix I expected him to live longer. I am absolutely devastated by this. I don't think there is much communication between the vets. Who you see is haphazard. I just don't think there was enough concern. I am not going to attempt to sue or anything. I think, however, that some responsibility is in order, so that another loved one does not die of what probably was an infection, not a back injury.

After trying a couple of different vets we finally found one that provides, professional, friendly, and inexpensive service. And, without adding on unneccessary services, or charges. Our puppy, Gidget Ann, is like a family member to us, so we were very particular about selecting a vet. On our last visit she was wagging her tail instead of shaking like she did during our visits to other vets. The staff is very friendly, and knowledgeable. I have to admit I was leery after reading some of the other posts on here, but they provided service above & beyond my expectations. And, without emptying my wallet! Thanks so much!

I started at Companion in another city. I had a good experience and moved my animals to this clinic when moving to P-Town. After many good experiences I found out about all the ""bad stuff"" but MY experience had been good so I continued to go there. That stops today.
Companions prices have continually gone up over the years and their quality of service has gone down. I appreciate the walk-in appts but I do not appreciate being there for over an hour before being seen by a vet. I do not appreciate that they continually try and ""sell"" procedures to me as they don't seem to appreciate that I am knowledgeable about vet care and have the RIGHT to accept or decline treatment.
My recent experiences have left a bad taste in my mouth. Specifically requesting no dis-solvable sutures and then getting them. Requesting no e-collar but when one of my fellow foster moms has to pick-up a dog, being sold one anyways. Not being told that if I wait for my HW test until I get my fosters altered I will SAVE MONEY. Being ""pre-charged"" for a fecal float with out being told that this is going to happen....
And don't even get me started on their bad, BAD attitudes. I understand they may be under-payed but doesn't MY money help them to earn their paycheck? I will NEVER, under ANY circumstances go there again. Just think about the things I don't know about.... Ugh!

DO NOT RISK TAKING YOUR PRECIOUS ANIMALS HERE! It is just not worth it. This is the WORST CPC I have ever been too. I cannot speak for all CPC's, I can only share my traumatic experience with this clinic and with Dr. Peetz. Please do not learn the hard way like I had to.
I found too many uninformed staff, receptionists who were rude and/or would ignore you, seemingly uneducated vet techs AND vets who cannot answer questions or convey important information. And the head hancho running the clinic, Dr. Larry Peetz, was incredibly unprofessional, egotistical, uncompassionate, and seemed to lack basic knowledge of cat behavior!
The staff failed to inform me of pertinent details (such as no one is at the clinic for over 12 hours, so whats the benefit of my cat staying in their care?), the staff failed to put my kitty in a secure kennel (the latch was broken!), the staff failed to shut ANY doors in the whole clinic, the staff failed to give him any pain management, this all resulted in my kitty escaping from the kennel overnight and lost for 5 days. Thankfully, he was found in the ceiling in a live trap, alive and relatively well.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peetz accused me of not having a good relationship with my cat, attempted to intimidate and belittle me and my situation, tried to put responsibility on my cat for escaping. This is not even the half of it.
If you'd like to read more you can read my full reviews on google and yelp. Though I hope this is one too many bad reveiws to deter you from ever going back there again. If you do, PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

DO NOT take your pet there. They may be cheap, but you get what you pay for! Each vet will tell you something different. I have had two emergencies and foolishly went there. They told me the pets were fine and sent me home. The very next day they died! The vets are not even graduated from Veterinary School! If you go there you are risking your pets life and your pet is worth way more than that place!!

This man have been charged with animal abuse in Oregon and convicted of other crimes in California. His license was suspended in California so seems that he moved to Oregon to keep commiting his crimes.
There are countless comments about this man negligence and mental health problems, let alone the way he treats animals and their owners.
Do your own research, call the state organization that monitors veterinarians and ask for his record. (Specially California)
Better yet, call the attorney who file charges against him in California and Oregon.
This man is an animal abuser, there are accusations of stealing dogs, abusing them, making them go throught painfull and unnecessary procedures , disrespecting owners, etc etc
If you want to take your kid to a daycare where the owner have been charged with pedophilia, then is either you don't care about the welfare of your child or you just hate your child.
Same goes with dogs.
