La Mesa Client of VCA Grossmont from La Mesa

We have been going to this vet for about 15 years, with anything that requires a vet hospital or immediate care (about once a year, approx). VCA's Dr. Perry is wonderful and the staff and other vets have been very good, too. They saved our dachshund's life when she ate rat poison - she came through with not a single ill effect, they saw her right away and administered the medicine that prevents bleeding. We have had our dogs spayed here, without any problem and also other miscellaneous treatments through the years. Also, recently, when our 14 year old dog had heart failure, they were very compassionate and took time to talk to us when the dog expired shortly after bringing her there. They even sent a card with lovely, personalized sentiments. I would say they truly value and care for animals at this animal hospital and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for this. They can be expensive (for certain surgeries) - I think being cautious about extras is a good idea. On the other hand, shopping around for cheaper vets might land one in the hands of those who have horrible reviews. Do your homework! VCA Grossmont is reliable and does good work, they have highly experienced veterinarians there - and very importantly, these vets respect and love the animals they care for. I am a real patient and a fan of theirs! :)
