    Dog Whisperer of Santa Barbara
    Ronit���s ability with dogs is amazing! We have tried other trainers for our hyper and anxious dog who was aggressive, without noticing real change. Once we involved Ronit she showed us easy new ways of handling the dog and the results were astounding! The dog was completely different during the first session! Neither me or my wife would have believed it possible. He was like a different dog, it was like day and night. Ronit taught us how to work with energy and body language which made all the difference. No more loud ���no��� or any words at all, Ronit���s way is quiet and respectful to our dog, and as a result he is much calmer and happier now. I really recommend Ronit���s work.

    St Francis Pet Clinic
    I wanted to update this out of fairness to Dr. Morgan. The pathology report he requested on the removed mass was to make sure that all of the tumor was removed, to prevent it growing back, not to determine if it was cancerous. It would have helped for him to tell us that, but we are all human after all. We still declined however because if you think about it, what would we do if he missed a bit? Would we want him to go back in for more? The answer is still no. This is a traumatic surgery, and although I still think we did the right thing, I do not think more surgery is the answer unless the tumor endangers her quality of life or function of organs, which does not appear to be the case. Time will tell. If you get a chance to work with the vet tech Missy, do so. She was the one who thoroughly informed us post op, and cleared up any question we had. I would still not recommend this particular vet, with the caveat that he will spend your money easily and if you do use him be sure to make clear your limits, knowing he is a caring, albeit high priced vet.

    Surgery went fine, and we believe that the Dr was correct in suggesting it, but the problem is that the Dr. wanted us to send in the mass to pathology again at an additional and unnecessary cost. After looking at the costs each time we have gone to see that particular vet, we think the added diagnostic pricing is unrealistic. The ear growth, the size of a small pea (hystio cytoma - not sure about the spelling) testing and removal costs were unrealistic, especially after another vet told us they are very common and not a problem, and in fact usually fall off after a couple of months. I do think St Francis Pet clinic employs sweet people who really care about our pets. I do not like feeling as though I am an uncaring person for declining unnecessary testing and treatments, although the pressure exerted on us was designed to make us feel that we are. We will now have to change vets. I don't know if guilt pricing is clinic policy or just that particular vet. We adore our dog and would not put her through what we feel is inhumane chemo treatments even if she had cancer, but would make her remaining life as comfortable as possible. So what is the point in further testing of a removed mass (that tested negative for cancer anyway) to look for cancer when we would not do more than we have done in having it removed? Does this make sense to anyone else? I have had to ask myself why the vet would insist twice now that we go forward with expensive testing and/or treatment that is not in the best interests of owner or pet, and worse, unnecessary.

    Ventura Veterinary Hospital

    Fez?s visit on 03 June 2014 to see the Ventura Veterinary Hospital Entourage ?

    A sincere "thank you" for the special attention all of you provided 3 June 2014 for our dog Fez that needed oral surgery as soon as possible.  We had several issues leading up to why we chose Dr. Marianne and your hospital for this needed procedure and the overall experience ended up flawless.  After reading online reviews and within one visit to your office, we felt comfortable enough to trust your hospital with our sensitive, ?old-soul introspective? child/dog Fez.  You were truthful and responsive from the start and put us at ease knowing what would be involved in this procedure.

    We have communicated to friends & co-workers about what a great Veterinarian office you have and that this good experience is because of a combined effort between the Veterinarian, Staff, and Hospital Personnel.

    Thank you for caring and making our lives easier!  We will see you again in the near future for Fez and our other pets? needs.  We also will send photos and hope to be posted on your ?Wall-of-Fame? for current & future patients.
    Thank you again for providing us with the best Veterinarian-experience we could ask for.

    It is the closest where I live and when I looked online, they were just as well like this, and now, they wanted to lead us. Anyway, I have been happy with their services. I am using that vet. They are reasonable to other vets. I do not know exactly, for immunization, sometimes my bill is like $64 but she had 3 shots, so, I am not sure. My first visit was free to meet the vet and I am happy with their services. I have just started some puppy classes with a woman named Wency Lopez and she is excellent.

    Anna Klucken
    She was very nice and sweet and runs a mobile dog grooming business.  She had my dog in her van for almost 4 hours and when she was done my dog has razor burns all over.  She didn't do a good job cutting my dog's hair.  I had to take my dog to the vet and it cost roughly $175.00.  Anna was very apologetic and did send me a check to recoup the vet charges.  My dog is still traumatized I think. She was late and had to reschedule a couple of times as well.

    La Cumbre Animal Hospital
    Every time we went to see them, they provided excellent care for cat.  They are very professional when dealing with my pets and I.  The technicians in the hospital are top notch as well.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for a primary care veterinarian.

    Beautiful. Fur was cut perfectly, and was so soft and smelled great. And, he got a little scarf and a bag of doggie treats. They called as they said they would when our dog was done, which was ahead of schedule. We were a bit hesitant to bring him here, as we were told that the dogs wandered throughout the place, and we weren't sure how our dog would react or how much "mayhem" might ensue. Well, there was absolutely no mayhem, and it was the happiest bunch o' dogs in one place I'd ever seen. It's an old school kind of place, but it feels good in there - not antiseptic and cold like other places. Ill definitely take my dog back there.

    Sit. Stay. Pet Services
    Beth is a God-sent! She unconditionally loves my boys (two Havanese) as if they were her own. She is flexible with scheduling and caring with my boys. When they see her walking other dogs in the neighborhood, they are overwhelmed with excitement. Beth walks my boys as well as pet-sits while I out of town. I am confident she cares for them with the same level of attention I do! We love her!

    Royal Treatment Mobile Dog Grooming
    Sandy of Royal Treatment Mobile Dog Grooming was reasonably responsive when I called for appointment. Left message and she called back within 24 hours. She works alone. Has a well-equipped van with all the tools she needs for grooming. She even uses her own warm water supply and doesn't need to hook up to a hose. She's quite calm and is obviously very experienced dealing with dogs. Told me she's been doing mobile grooming for 17 years. I liked that she didn't cut the toenails but used a grinder to shorten them. Also liked that she completely dried the dog and I wasn't left with a damp doggie. Sandy was on-the-dot punctual, spent five minutes getting to know and making dog comfortable before starting to bathe and groom. Whole procedure took a bit less than an hour. I was impressed and have already made appointment for a second grooming.

    Care Hospital Inc
    When we had a pet emergency, I checked with friends and everyone I
    called emphatically sent me to Care Hospital on Haley and Garden.  At
    2AM we received attentive and supportive "care".  The doctor kept us well
    informed, we were permitted, in fact encouraged, to visit our pet while
    under their care, and the entire staff seemed competent, friendly and
    sympathetic to our entire family. 
    We now have our pet home and happy.  I'm grateful that Care was there when we needed it, and for it
    being such a wonderful quality service provider.  I have to say the cost
    was not cheap, but I don't think any more then my regular Vet and
    always available.  Thank you Care!
