So Thankful
Emmaleigh Lanza from Lake Elsinore

We just moved to Lake Elsinore from Corona a couple of months ago and our previous vet was all the way in Irvine. While it was a very long way to the vet from Corona to Irvine, it was worth it to know that our sweet puppies were being taken care of so well. But moving to Lake Elsinore made it impossible to travel to Irvine for the vet, especially if there was an emergency with one of our pups. I searched online and found VCA CA Oaks Animal Hospital and read through all of the testimonials here and even did a Google search. Everything I read met every concern that I have when visiting a vet and I was so happy that VCA was so close and sounded so wonderful. Within days of finding VCA online, one of my pups was walking oddly on his back right leg. I tend to be over-protective (and maybe a tad paranoid too) when it comes to my puppies, so I called VCA and even though I hadn't yet been in for a first visit yet with either of my dogs, they were so kind and were able to fit me in right away. Upon arrival, they took care of everything my puppy and I needed. The nurses and doctor (Dr. Ashley) were not only so kind and patient, they were so knowledgeable. It turned out that my pups leg was just fine(of course by the time I had him in the vet he was no longer walking weird on it) no one ever made me feel silly or as if I was wasting their time, they listened to me and never made me feel silly for being so over-protective, in fact instead said that my bringing him in meant I was a good pet parent. :) They never took away my puppy to another room leaving me wondering what was being done to my puppy; at the beginning of the visit, the nurse kindly informed me that he would need to be weighed and the scale was in the next room, she kindly asked me if it was ok to take him to the next room to weigh him. I was so thankful that they understood that I would want to know why and where they would need to take my puppy even if only for a minute. This is something that worried me about trying a new vet, and even though I never ever even mentioned this to them, they already are so in tune with their patients and the parents of their patients it is truly wonderful and I am so thankful! :) On top of all of this, the visit (my initial first visit) was free! The next day they called to see how Ricky (my puppy that had the visit)was doing and informed me that when I bring my other puppy (Giovanni) in for the first time, his initial visit would be free too! Then a couple of days later, a sweet card came in the mail addressed to Ricky thanking him and I for coming in and that they would be there for anything we need; this note was handwritten by Dr. Ashley! I know they will be there for us and I am so so so thankful!! :)
