If I could put no stars I would. This place has no compassion for animals at all. They are so wrapped up about money with absolutely no concern for the well being of or the care needed to be given to the animals that come into their place of business. THIS PLACE NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN. VISALIA WOULD BE BETTER OFF NOT HAVING THIS AS AN OPTION TO GO TO. If you do go you will be greatly disappointed with the care your sick family member will receive.

My dog had a major ear infection. I took her to other vets and they could not clear it up. We took her to Companion and Dr Caldwell knew what to do and what kind if medicine she needed. Thank You Dr Caldwell. The staff treated her as if she was their pet.
I hate that this is the only middle of the night option in the area. I have been to this place three or four times and only once was I lucky enough to get a caring doctor. I've also hearrd similar things from other people about how they are so focused on money. Every time I've called and explained the situation the conversation is all about money and your constinitly reminded of prices and that they will run your info to see if you can afford since everything is upfront which they love to remind you of as well. Also every receptionist or tech I've spoken to will not give a shred of advice or even a hey if this was my dog I'd do this or that. All they will do is tell you bring them in. And if your there they will repeat over and over the treament and cost and will look at you with blank looks if you ask them anything not money related. Also this place is open from early evening till 8 am the next morning but if you don't come before 10pm they charge you 125$ instead of the normal 90$ which is already ridiculous. 125$ just to have some insensitive doctor tell you the most minimal info possible then list expensive treatments and tell you decide and pay so we can get started. When a human goes the emergency room we save that person and worry about money later, why is it any different for animals in an emergency. What happened to all the compassion and home visits like vets in the old days??
Dr TolMAN is the worst vet I've ever encountered she will let your animal die with no remorse. Our 9 day old French Mastiff puppy was not eating and a bit lethargic so with my 2 daughters we rush to the vet thinking we were going to a doctor boy were we wrong!! As we waited for 40 min for Dr TOLMAN to make her appearance in our room our puppy's condition worsend. I walked out to let someone know things were not going well Dr. Tolman finally made a quick appearance and said "we can put your puppy down" or give him a shot of atropine to speed the heart rate but he will ultimately die. So while we tried to contemplated our horrible options Dr TolMAN said "well while you think about that your puppy has probably already made that decision for you" and left the room.. Wow!! Pure AWE came over my wife and daughters. So with no hope we said we will take him home and make him comfortable with a heating mat and some electrolytes 12 hrs later he's going strong eating moving and latching back on mom he's still day to day but hey! If we listen to our scary terrible Dr TolMAN and her staff. He would be uthenized right now..
The staff at night is so unprofessional and so uncaring about people's animals that shouldn't be working there and I suggest not going unless you absolutely have to . Way too expensive
I took my dog into this get on a Sunday afternoon. They were busy and we waited almost an hour and a half before we were taken into an exam room. After three assistant look at my dog I realised she was not seriously hurt. We were advised that the Dr would be into see us. We waited an hour and 35 minutes, no one can in to even acknowledge we were there, or remind us that the Dr would be in to see us. We left, the receptionist said we did not owe anything. Visalia, needs another weekend vet. I am going to Clovis next time.
I don't know about the other vets but I will stay away from Dr. Adams. Whatever you do. My English Bulldog went into castration surgery under Dr. Adams and almost died on the operating table. She said my dog turned blue. Thank god my dog was strong enough to live through it. I will never take my dog there again. Scary!
I took my dog to this place because it was the middle of the night and I thought we couldn't wait until morning. The young lady who helped us was pleasant enough but all she did was tell us how much everything would cost. I went there because it is the only emergency vet in the area. You would think people in that type of business would care about helping sick or injured animals-WRONG-all they cared about was money. They even refused to look at my dog without my SS#! Why would they need that unless they were going to run a credit report to see how much they could gouge me for! The Vet wouldn't even look at my dog unless I forked over another $100! How sad is that. Once they found out I couldn't afford expensive tests and treatments out came the euthanasia option. I am not sure that the lady that was helping us was even qualified to provide medical care, she seemed like a receptionist. We ended up putting our dog to sleep because it seemed to be the right thing to do at the time. When we went to pick up the ashes the people, receptionist, office manager, were rude and condescending when we complained about their lying and lack of compassion. Wow, even basic customer service was too much for them. This was the most traumatic experience of my young son's life and the final memories of his beloved friend has been tainted by the very people he trusted to help.
They killed my dog!!!!!!!!!!!! Stay away from this place.... The staff all lie and are only out to get all the money they can from you. They take advantage of the situation you are in and then treat you rudely if you question what was done or the amount of your bill.
We brought are friends dog in because He was hit by a car. Our friend was out-of-town because she just had brain surgery . They were very professional and wanted to make sure that owner wanted to save him. Very nice staff yes they are expensive but who doesn't want the very Best when saving their pet of course it's going to cost more because it's an after hours hospital but we are very happy with our service here and would recommend it to anyone
