Lost Pet File

I liked this clinic until they lost my pets file/medical record/chart, and the office manager Carrie yelled at me and hung up the phone.
Very poor customer service etiquette and they didn't offer to remedy this problem.
Carrie said they don't know where the chart is and that there is nothing they can do for us.
How sad that becasue they have such ugly, poor, illmannered staff working there the got a poor rating and lost a client.

been happily going to this office for the past 6 yrs

I have taken ALL the pets that I have had in the past 6 yrs to this office. I have NEVER had a bad experience with any of the staff. Very friendly and kind. The vets have always been thorough with information and I trust them. I will continue take all my pets there. I do recommend this Vet Clinic to ALL my friends to take there pets, and THEY HAVE. I have heard NO complaints from any of them either.

Remains to be seen ... need to go back for the same issue

My dog's nose was snotty for a couple months and started to smell like infection, I finally took her in, afraid it was maybe a foxtail - and I was told, no it wasn't a fox tail, that he didn't smell anything, and it was probably allergies - thank you and goodbye.

It's been months since that appointment, and her nose is continually snotty, and now her eye has the same green snot. I'm sure it's a respitory infection (or whatever, a nose infection) - so I called to get a free re-appointment, since as I see it, I already paid for a vet appointment for this issue. I've been told to call back on Monday when an office manager and the vet are in.

we shall see ...

Excellent Care

I was recommended to this hospital by a friend who had taken her 17 year old cat there since she got him as a kitten. I have taken my 14 year old cat there since I moved to San Diego in 2003. They are very nice and always ask about my animals when I go in there to get my cat's Rx food. I trust these people with my babies!

Horrible Experience!!!!

Plain and simple. We had requested to have our dog's nails examined and cut....and what did we get? ...a half -shaven dog!!! They did not refund our money for our lose and now we are considering bring this to court for his practice if the doctor does not act accordingly.

I will stay with Colina Veterinary Hospital as long as I am in the City of San Diego.

I have taken my pets to Colina Vet Clinic for 15 years. They are the best!!!! I have never had a bad experience with the service or the staff. I have several animals that are patients there and I've always had the best treatment and results. **********HIGHLY RECOMMENDED*********** A very staisfied client.

Happy with Service

We took out dog to get spade last week 3/10/07 and found the faculity, personel, and vet very nice. There was a consultation with Dr. Guajardo before the proceedure. We also had our dog's teeth cleaned. It has been a week and our little one is doing great.

I took my cat there to have him nuetered. He left fine but a day later he started to act lethargic and didn't want to eat or drink. I took him back the next morning (where I was ""scolded"" by the lady and the front desk for not making an appointment) and the vet said that it had nothing to do with his surgery, that it must have been a dormant sickness that appeared coincidentially soon after. Not to mention that on our return visit he still charged me over $150 to check him and give him fliuds and antibiotics. I have never been to a vet that charges anything for a return visit when the problem obviously stemmed from previous treatment. The day after our return visit I took him to another vet clinic where I was told that he had an internal infection and the only way he would have gotten it was from his surgery, I AM NOT A VET and I could have told myself that. If you love your pets and want them to be healthy don't take them to Colina Vet Hospital as the vet is irresponsible and the staff is rude.
