    A+ Dog Training
    He is excellent. The owner's name is Thomas Lee. We actually finished one class and we are about to start another next week, so we are still using them. We took a package deal that included several things. We had home training, we had classes out in the field and other things. The cost included 7 private lessons, 5 puppy group training sessions and then 5 intermediate sessions. They had different packages.

    Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital
    We have been going to MVSAH for years and we are very happy with their service. The vets are great, kind, and understanding. I really never had an issue with the care they provide to our pets. As of late I have noticed that they seem to be very expensive and this is my only issue. It is to the point that I will be looking for another vet. I feel that pet health insurance has driven up prices and find it very frustrating that we have to go into considerable credit card debt to provide health care for our pets.

    Merced Veterinary Clinic
    We called them without any prior knowledge of the Doctor or staff. It turned out well, the dog was relaxed and happy in the office and the girls working there treated her friendly and thought she was sweet. You can see that the staff really loves animals which put us at ease. The surgery went well and we got our dog back by 5 that evening. They offered to keep her overnight at a extra charge but she was just fine to come home. Everyone was nice and I would reccommend this hospital.

    Lisa's Pet Styles
    The experience overall was fine. Conversations on phone and at the store were a bit abrupt but most likely based on how busy the store seemed. We weren't impressed with the results. When we take our dog to get groomed we expect her to be well brushed and clean. I am sure she was shampooed but either the store is not familiar with pugs, had someone new doing the work or just don't have the attention to detail we expect when spending money for her grooming. Pugs have a very specific type of hair and require a lot of brushing. We picked her up and took her home and I have never seen so much loose hair on my dog, It was like someone brushed her after her bath but just enough to loosen all the hairs but with no actual clean up. I didn't expect to have to brush my dog the same afternoon we paid for her to be groomed. She also had a small piece or poop on her butt when we picked up up as well.

    Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital
    Only issue with this visit (which was a little troubling) was that insulin we ordered for our cat had been given to another pet owner with a similar name the day before.  Thank god the other owner did not start the treatment on their pet yet! Also, the employees did not update our prescription's dosage changes on my new label.  I have gone to this practice many years, and I did not recognize the ladies working today, so perhaps they were new.  This is kind of a big "mistake" to make, though, and I fear could have seriously harmed a pet.  Hopefully the vet was informed by the employees themselves.  I would say price-wise they are on the high end as well, but I am willing to pay for consistent high-quality treatment.  Mistakes like the one made on this visit are rare, fortunately.

    Shaggin Waggin Mobile Pet Grooming
    It went excellent! I had been looking for a pet mobile service because most grooming places I have been to seem to not care to do cats. They usually complain. I love that they come to my house, so my cat doesn't have to sit in a cage and be bothered or scared by dogs. The owners were extremely nice and friendly! I will be using them for now on!

    Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital
    While there are good vets almost everywhere, the personality of Dr. Santos and the program he mentors is both phenomenal and leagues ahead of his contemporaries.

    At the top of my comments, I would state that Dr. Santos and his entire team at ?Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital? are a family of professionals that you can feel comfortable with.  You cannot escape liking people who enjoy their roles with your family pets as much as these people do.  They always remember your pet?s name, even if they are not always as accurate about the owner?s name. Pets are greeted in such a manner that wiggle tails and purrs are common.  

    My wife and I handle a sweet canine (Doberman) service animal as well as her little sister, a tabby cat who believes she is of privileged class. Both of these animals look forward to seeing their medical caregivers and get excited as we drive closer to the facilities. Even in the worst situations, these folks have a knack for lifting spirits and helping us humans through difficult times with our (pets / family members / working partners).

    Some of the qualities of leadership that Dr. Santos shares with his team are:
    • Compassion
    • Communication skills
    • Vast medical and scientific knowledge
    • Solid examination techniques
    • Focus on continuing education
    • Benevolence to the community
    • VERY Supportive of service and working animals
    • Community based practitioner who is actively involved in supporting local schools, children?s programs, and other local issues. (Dr. Santos himself sits on the board at Turlock Irrigation District)

    In regard to the amenities and services available:
    • The facility is clean and comfortable with well-organized offices
    • Location and parking is convenient
    • Appointments are encouraged but not required
    • Veterinarians of varied disciplines and expertise are in the practice
    • Well qualified and personable technicians or other professional support staff members
    • Dog and cat cages in separate areas
    • Staff is caring, calm, competent, courteous, and they communicate effectively
    • Veterinarians have special interests such as geriatrics or behavior
    • Range of services include the very small animals to the large animals
    • X-rays, blood work, Physical therapy, etc. are done in-house
    • Emergency services are available
    • Fees are very reasonable
    • Performs free and discounted services for community based programs related to feral cats and abandoned dogs.
    • This practice also has a crematorium for those who want to ensure the passing of their pet is with dignity and remains can be returned with confidence that only your pet is returned to you.
    • Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital provides a remembrance group to those in a state of bereavement.

    My wife and I travel 90 miles from the Sacramento area to Dr. Santos?s clinic because of the observable difference in services this office has over any other practice we have experienced. All are outgoing, sympathetic people who like animals and like to please.  They stand within feet of you when sharing information, give you considerable eye contact, and address you and your pet by name. Everyone smiles, is upbeat and strokes your pet with sincere affection. During a routine office call, the veterinarian never hurries or attempts to speed up the exam.  We get an extra benefit from this team in the form of exchanges that tend to add to an understanding of animal behavior or physiology

    The rooms are clean and free of odor. There is a children?s area adjacent to the main reception where young ones can learn from pet related videos, books, games, photos, and stuffed animals.  The reception area is full of eye catching design, art and comfortable seating for both you and your pet. Waits are NEVER very long.  

    The exam rooms have soft-scape walls and art so that noises are muffled and do not cause your pet anxiety.  There is a small whiteboard in each room so you can list your questions and concerns while waiting and therefore not forget subjects you want discussed.

    I recommend:
    • NOT merely using your veterinary hospital as an emergency room. It leaves little for your vet to know the special needs of your pet, (our Doberman is hypersensitive to anesthetics), little time to become comfortable with your Veterinarian or to make friends and have pleasant experiences.
    • Engage you?re Veterinarian in conversation until you are comfortable with his / her style with you and your pet. 
    • Set an initial appointment and set regular checkups.  It is far cheaper than working in emergency mode only. This practice allows your Veterinarian to note potential issues earlier than even you can and office visits are extremely inexpensive insurance.
    • Only take one pet in at a time so your attentions are focused along with your Veterinarians.
    • Make sure that the family member who takes your pet to the Veterinarian is the one who knows the most about the pet and or its condition.
    • Take new prospective pets to the Veterinarian prior to committing to a life with it so you can be assured of a fit in your home and the overall health situation of your pet.
    • Be Nice in return.  Just like your family doctor, your best results come from establishing and maintaining an honest relationship with your veterinarian. Buy a Starbucks card or such on occasion for that staff person who was ?extra special?. This really says ?thank you? on behalf of your pet within the office and helps establish long term friendships between your pet and their caregivers.
    • In the same light, try hard to not let stressful visits affect your pet?s emotions or makes you an additional concern to the Monte Vista Small Animal Hospitals staff.

    I go to the location on Olive Ave. Darlene grooms my dogs, and she is incredible. She always does a wonderful job. She's very good with the dogs. I feel like the price is reasonable. The place is clean. I haven't personally taken the dogs. They were actually taken by a friend of mine. They take the animals extremely well. Darlene just loves animals. You can tell by how she treats them. The chihuahua is ready to go with her when she comes to the door. The treatments are always wonderful. The trimmings are always wonderful. I prefer the poodle terrier to have more of a terrier look, so she trims the ears. I know when to contact her. There's a recording if she isn't there. She always gets right back in touch. She is just great.

    I have been taking my dogs to first Amanda, and now Darlene at the Olive Ave. shop for several years now. Darlene always does a wonderful job on my teri/poo and my Chihuahua, and on my now deceased Lhasa. She follows directions as to how you want them trimmed and always treats them very well. I highly recommed Darlene and the shop for their love of animals, their courtesy to their customers and the very fair priceing for their great services.
