Pet Specialist reviews in Lake Forest

    I was so grateful to find a company that didn't destroy the bees that built a nest in my jasmine hedge but instead rescued them and, a month or so later, put them to work in the almond groves of central California. When I mentioned I needed to get rid of my bees, the first thing many friends and family think is "destroy." Apparently they aren't aware of the critical role of bees in agriculture and the cycle of life. Christopher of Bee Rescue is enthusiastic about saving bees, careful to collect every one, enjoys sharing the honeycomb, and is very kind. This is a niche small business run by one man, and of course you can't expect a switchboard and a specific timeline for collection, although Christopher does work with you to find a time that works. Have patience. I wouldn't call anyone else.

    He is very, very good at interacting with my pet.  His name is Ryan and he is very good at dealing with my extremely timid and disturbed dog.  He comes about every other month.  He's got me on a calendar and he'll text me an alert and ask me when we're ready.  He usually knows when we're ready more than I do.  He's very good with my dog.  He does a fantastic job grooming the dog & very good recommendations for keeping her clean and keeping her teeth clean.  He even gives advice on behavior which is good.  Also, it's just really about convenience.  He'll text me reminders and he will schedule around my availability and it's just so easy not having to load the dog up in the car and take her to a place.  It's just convenient, he's responsive, and the quality of their work is really, really good.

    It was a series of training appointments. What I liked the most was I had a place to go to with really big challenges of training a puppy. I love their support system for people going through this. It was great. My dog was a hyper active big dog. She responded so-so, she learned a few things, but mostly, I learned how to deal with my dog better.

    Excellent. The first visit our dog was very anxious and didn't want to be left behind. By the 3rd visit he was pulling us to get INSIDE Paws. He loves the staff and really enjoys the daycare. Now that we have a second dog, she pulls to get inside of Paws too. The staff is wonderful. The facility is clean and welcoming. They have remote viewable webcams so you can see your dog in the daycare. I can't say enough good things about this place.

    This review concerns the Lake Forest location of this company. I have been using them about a year with excellent results. Today, I took my dogs in at 9 am. When I didn't hear from them by 1:30, I had to go to another appointment. I checked my phone around 3 pm and discovered that I had missed their call at about the same time, 1:30. I arrived around 3:30 to pick up my dogs. The man at the front desk immediately began chastising me for being so late to pick them up. He said that they charge a $15 fee when owners don't come immediately to pick up their dogs. He said that they had called me at 12:30, which according to my phone was not accurate. He continued to berate me as I paid. In my own defense, I said that I had no idea they had this kind of policy, and that I had never gone to a groomer with such a policy. Instead of bringing my dogs out front as the groomers always do, he handed me the leashes and made me walk to the back where they have little pens for the dogs, and retrieve them myself. Why would a business person treat a customer like this? As I left, I said that I wouldn't be back, and all that got me was more verbal tongue-lashing. Don't use this groomer. Even though they do high-quality dog grooming, the undisclosed policies and lack of courtesy far outweigh the good. (By the way, in the end, he did not charge me the extra $15 for being "late" to pick up my dogs.)

    I run the Saint Bernard rescue and I have been taking my rescues to Steve for over 13 years for training and boarding. He has trained many of our dogs that had severe behavioral issues i.e. dog aggression. After completing their training they where all successfully adopted into great homes. I currently have 3 Saints with Steve and I have spent several hours watching him work all the dogs in his care with love and compassion. His place is a green facility plus it's the quietest and cleanest facility I have ever seen and I have been to several kennels over the years of doing rescue. So I highly recommend Steve Welch when it comes to training any dog for any reason i.e. aggression, service dog, or just to be a sweet family pet.

    I have been taking my kitty to The Cat Hospital for 19 years. Dr. Elston is fantastic! He is very gentle, an expert in cat behavior & offers discounts for long term patients if low income.

    I took my previous kitty to another vet, they killed when she was 14 due to negligence.

    I spent about $100. The vet is very knowledgeable. There has been a turnover in office staff and I  noticed that but when I took my dog there the staff was great, they knew him and it was wonderful.

    This VCA animal hospital is no longer in business. Patients were transferred to VCA Mission Viejo Animal Hospital or VCA Arroyo Animal Hospital. The doctors and staff are very good at either location.

    She is really awesome. She is really caring, she goes over and above with the dog and is very gentle with them. She is always available. They have vaccine clinics in the morning where you can get immunization for your pets at a discounted rates. The staff is very friendly.
