North Coast VCA is the one for me
DeeDee Jumani from Oceanside

This is an absolutely amazing hospital with an even more amazing staff. Kind, caring considerate, compassionate, and very accommodating. My pets are my family and want the best for them just as I want the best for my children and this place is it. You want to find the best possible Dr. for your kids and the best possible Vet for your pets. North Coast VCA has specialist around the clock that constantly update their knowledge to give you the best possible up to date treatment. I know this from personal experience after spending thousands of dollars on my Akita's ear problems, many vets, many different meds and treatments none if which worked but were painful to my animal and heart wrenching for me. Dr. Yank tested my lil man's ear, created a solution and within one weak we saw a difference, after a month is was in total control. I wish I could give you the names of the vets that told us "there is no cure" because there was and Dr. Yank, found it. The atmosphere, attitude and professionalism set for the staff and administration is obliging and comforting from the minute you walk through the door to the time you're making difficult decisions. Every experience I have had with them has been more than pleasant for both me and my pets which is colossal when deciding just who is going to take care of my animals.
