The Most Amazing People Ever
The Boorkman Family from Murrieta

We can not express how amazing everybody is at Cal Oaks. They have seen us through so much over the past 5 years. We had to put our Golden Retriever, Aja, to sleep almost 5 years ago and then in 2009 our beautiful black lab, Gracey, died. On both occasions it was not just our family who was heartbroken, but everybody there was as well. You see, they do not look at your pet as just an animal, they see them as if they were their own and that is exactly how they treat them. I think losing Gracey was the most devastating event we have had with our dogs, it was so unexpected, so sudden. I didn't even call them when she got sick that morning, I just showed up and they were on it. We waited while Dr. Wentzel did Emergency Surgery and they came out every 10 minutes to update us. When she went into cardiac arrest the entire staff was in there, Dr. Miller joined in the efforts as well. We have always known how stellar the doctors and staff are here but that day revealed the true compassion, skills, and the heart they have for all family members.
