    Beloved Pet Mobile Vet
    I cannot thank Dr. Lynn Hendrix enough for providing her mobile vet service for animal palliative care and animal at-home euthanasia. She was recommended to us by two different veterinarian services in Davis and was highly recommended. We needed at-home euthanasia for our cat, who had advanced cancer. On the phone she was compassionate, attentive, reassuring, and very clear about what services she provides and what we could expect. Her online scheduling is very effective and helpful. In person she was absolutely wonderful with us and with our sweet cat. When I met her in the parking lot, I was very distraught and she asked me if I wanted a hug. Yes, I did. So sweet! With our cat she was quiet, gentle, kind, moved slowly and talked in a very soothing manner. She talked with us for a while when she arrived so that the cat would get used to her voice in the room. She let us make all the decisions about where our cat would be, when we would start the proceedings,how we wanted to hold our cat during the procedure, how long we would be with our cat afterwards, if we wanted to carry the cat to her car. The procedure was very straightforward and painless for our cat, helped by the fact that after the first injection (in the fold of the skin on the back of the neck for the tranquilizer with small needle), Dr. Hendrix leaves the cat (which reduces stress on the cat), goes to a different part of the room to prepare for the second and third injections, and we were with the cat while the initial tranquilizer took effect, which took about 12 minutes or so and our cat slowly fell asleep. Then Dr. Hendrix injected the anesthesia, and a few minutes later, the euthanasia. Dr. Hendrix provided a very soft blanket which she covered our cat with during the injections. After our cat passed away, Dr. Hendrix went to our car to put her supplies back, giving us alone time with our cat, which was very much appreciated. When she returned, we wrapped our cat in the blanket and I carried our cat to her van, where she had a little bed for the cat's body, surrounded by other soft blankets and padding. I noticed that she closed the trunk of her van very, very slowly and gently before she left. The entire procedure from the time she arrived until she left was one hour and ten minutes. The cost included the tranquilizer, the anesthetic, the euthanasia, cremation, and ashes returned to us, for a total of $475. It's about $100 less expensive if you opt for a communal cremation and ashes not to be returned - they are taken to the Sierras. We wanted to keep the ashes; Dr. Hendrix said it takes about 3-6 weeks to receive them. My son and I were completely distraught about our cat's illness and the fact that she needed euthanasia, and Dr. Hendrix made the experience as dignified and respectful as we could have ever wanted. We feel that this was a gift to our cat, and we are forever grateful to Dr. Hendrix for her skill and gentle, loving personality and kindness. She provides an invaluable service.

    UC Davis Veterinary Medicine
    An extraordinary experience, far surpassing any expectation I had when I brought my sick cat Jennifer in for an oncology consult. I met with Dr. Fabrice Fosset and vet student Cassandra Shoup, who were so gentle and compassionate with my cat, and so very articulate and thorough in their examination and explanation and recommendations. Over a period of four hours, an extensive exam was performed, they looked at the x-rays and read the test results I brought with me from a local vet, they consulted with faculty clinician Dr. Steven Epstein, and a printout of the findings, recommendations, instructions, and the two medications were given to me. The private rooms are warm and quiet, very stress-free for the animal and human. The waiting rooms are wonderful - very large, quiet, with lots of magazines and coffee/tea/hot water available 24/7. The staff is very friendly and supportive. My cat was diagnosed with advanced malignant cancer, and our family chose no further tests or surgery. Their summarizing report is thorough and so very, very kind. "Thank you for entrusting us with Jennifer's care. We are so sorry that we did not have better news for you today. We hope that your remaining time with Jennifer is precious, and know that we are here for you if you have any questions in the future. Please feel free to contact us or bring her in; our hospital is open 24/7." I wish I had brought my cat here for all care - vaccinations, checkups, etc. Just recently UCD Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital was announced as #1 in the world. Well deserved. Thank you, Dr. Fosset, Ms. Shoup, and Dr. Epstein.

    Davis Small Animal Hospital
    Avoid this "hospital" at all costs. It is with great sadness that I write this review, because I have done my sick cat a great disservice by going here and having my cat undergo various tests for two weeks, when I should have gone to UCD and had all testing, results, recommendations, and medications given in ONE DAY, not to mention the extreme frustrations I experienced as the client. Here at Davis Small Animal Hospital on Russell Blvd, test results can sometimes take more than one or two days; some medications have to be purchased at Davis Compounding Solutions (which is not open on weekends or Mondays, so good luck if you need the meds immediately); communication is very poor (sometimes calls are not returned on the same day and/or calls are not returned when the vet (Edson) said she'd call back - receptionist (Fran) said "The vet is busy and has other clients."); sometimes calls are returned as late as 8:30 pm; I was told that I might not be able to make an x-ray appt for my cat at 9:45 a.m. because "the vet doesn't like to come in that early"; the vet (Edson) did not detect a mass in my cat's pouch/abdomen on initial visit and we would not have known about it except that the radiologist noticed it when the cat was laying on her back (not even during the ultrasound; just visually); printouts of test results are not provided unless you ask for it - everything is verbal; recommendations and instructions are not printed out, only verbal; the waiting room and consult rooms are very cold; be careful when you walk in, because there is sometimes pee at the front door. This place has definitely seen better days - the look of the property itself and the outdated facilities are just a few indications. I eventually took my cat to UCD Small Animal Clinic (at 1 Garrod Dr.) for an oncology consult, and discovered that the two weeks I spent in great frustration at Davis Small Animal Hospital because of the back-and-forth various tests, waiting for results, having to get medication at a different office - all of this could have been avoided if I had taken my cat to UCD, where they do all the testing AND provide results AND medication AND recommendations AND instructions in ONE DAY. Their attention to detail is amazing, and they provide excellent support and follow-up care. It was definitely worth the $225 emergency fee just to get my cat seen immediately, since their appt calendar fills up very quickly (and for good reason, they are the #1 Veterinary Medicine School in the world). The rates at UCD are comparable to the rates at Davis Small Animal, so you don't save much money by going here; instead, you would be doing yourself and your pet a huge favor by going to UCD School of Veterinary Medicine Small Animal Clinic.

    ANIMAL CARE CLINIC OF WOODLAND
    Everyone was very compasionate from the receptionist to the vet.  The vet talked honestly about the prognosis and did not insist on a lot of tests that would not change the outcome.  I was grateful.

    Acorn Veterinary Clinic
    Dr. Cadino was the primary vet for both our dogs, but if she was not available, we also worked with Dr. Nixon.  Both vets were always willing to answer questions. Service was very thorough and prompt.  They were very caring throughout a long illness with one of our dogs.  Vets can be expensive, but they were willing to work with us to keep costs down.

    South Davis Veterinary Center
    I stopped by to buy a shampoo for my dogs with allergies problems. Then the Vet was available and helped me to pick up a good one based in their skin problems. So, I went there actually to buy their shampoo, and the Vet was very attentive to my questions.

    ANIMAL CARE CLINIC OF WOODLAND
    It was fine and is sort of a small town clinic. I think the practice is fairly large. It’s in a little old house so it is kind of homey. The staff is very nice. Their location is a little inconvenient because the parking is not great. In terms of price, they are all about the same in this area.

    Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center
    Each veterinarian i have seen at PVSEC was great.  For the more routine cases they were very thorough and gave me all my options for my 9 year old spaniel mix and my little dog who had luxating patellas.  For emergency services, I took my golden retriever there the two times he got suddenly ill and they took great care of him.   My dogs are like my children and I want the best possible care for them.  You may be able to find cheaper, but probably not better care.

    Midtown Animal Clinic
    The veterinarian was good at listening, asked many pertinent questions regarding my cat's symptoms, observed my cat's behavior, and spent some time trying to get to the bottom of it. Labs were what was expensive, but I have not gotten any tests on my animal in many years. She did not give me a hard time about not coming in regularly, and the tests done were relevant. She explained the possible causes of the vomiting and the steps we would take to work it up. She did start with a bunch of unnecessary studies, but tried simple stuff first. I felt heard and cared for. My cat was not traumatized and while she did not appreciate the bladder tap to obtain urine, she got over it and was acting normally again within minutes of arrival home.
