  • A Staff That Truly Cares About Your Pet

    -Judi B from Murrieta, CA
    Pet Name: Charlie and Cooper

    I have been bringing my two Basset Hounds to Cal Oaks Vets for almost 7 years. How great it is to know that the staff truly cares about your pet and you, too. You'll always be greeted with a smile and you know that your pet will be receiving top quality care, whether it's a short visit or surgery. Our vet is Dr. Wentzel. The minute he walks into the exam room, he'll warm your heart with his wonderful smile and then he'll actually greet your pet on the floor before he begins his exam with the animal on the table. How great is that? Dr. Wentzel just makes you feel so welcomed and you can tell he enjoys his "clients". No fakeness there! After years of chronic ear problems and years of going to a specialist for one of my dogs, Dr. Wentzel informed me of a new medication that he read up on and may improve the ear condition for my dog. Since I was told by the ear specialist there was nothing else they could do to help my dog, I was thrilled to think that Dr. Wentzel was aware of a new drug. He administered the new medication and after a few visits, my dog's condition and quality of life improved dramatically. I was amazed that Dr. Wentzel had knowledge of this new medication when the ear specialist had just given up. A few weeks ago, my other dog required surgery for a molar abscess. My dog was treated so lovingly by Dr. Wentzel and the nursing staff that when I left, I knew my dog would be receiving great care. The nursing staff explained the post op care and medications to me so that I could understand them fully. I had some additional questions afterward and they took considerable time to help me. Their attitude was one of caring and concern. With Cal Oaks Vets, you get the total package of outstanding doctor care, nursing staff care and front office reception. Real people with real love in their hearts. Always a pleasure to go there and never a disappointment. The minute you go through their front door, you know you made the right choice and you'll get the very best of care.
