  • Five Star Service

    -Kathy Caldwell from Carmichael, CA
    Pet Name: Casey

    This vet hospital gets a 5+ rating from my friend, who had to euthanize her dear dog on 11/3/13, and myself. Obviously it was a traumatic time for both of us, but especially for my friend. Everyone there, especially Dr. Kate Hamon, were so kind and caring and informative with all of the decisions that had to be made. My friend and her dog were treated with the utmost of dignity and understanding. The result was that my friend's dear canine companion of 13 years, the dog was 15, was helped to release her from her seizures and pain in her advanced years. It is still so hard to deal with this type of situation, but everyone at the VCA Hospital helped to make it at least bearable. We are forever grateful.
    Thank you all so very much.
    Kathy Caldwell, friend of Casey, my canine pal

    Also, your personal note sent to Karen was so special to her. I know she will get around to thanking you, but I just wanted you to know how much it helped her. You are so kind and caring.

    Thanks Bill and all of the staff at VCA...No matter when you go Dr. Bill we will follow... always The Falero gang.

  • My son Jack has an awesome doctor

    -Allyson M. from Citrus Heights, CA
    Pet Name: Jack

    Pet Image While our daughter Grace has required more extensive care due to hip dysplasia, our other baby Jack has also been to VCA for care. He's in good health and recently went for his annual checkup and vaccinations. Dr. Grinstead is just fantastic and she is so good with him. I am a very pleased dog mommy. Before Jack was a regular patient I brought him to VCA for emergency care when he had a mysterious bout of vomiting and dehydration. The vet on staff that night was just wonderful and very thorough and caring. He got my son hydrated, medicated and back to being himself. My husband and I are grateful to have VCA in our corner. Thank you, VCA for all the good work you do.

  • Knowledgeable and compassionate care

    -Allyson M. from Citrus Heights, CA
    Pet Name: Grace

    After receiving less-than-compassionate care for my girl Grace at a vet's office in Fair Oaks, I was at the end of my rope and desperate to find a great doctor for my daughter. We found her! Dr. Grinstead is just awesome, she is sharp and treats our babies so well. Our Grace has hip dysplasia at the very young age of two, we had to deal with incompetence and uncaring staff at the other place we took her to. I pretty much went on the warpath and made my feelings known, I'm sure that place is happy to be rid of my business. But all I am is an intensely caring mom to two beautiful pups, I want my babies treated well because they mean the world to me. I am completely comfortable with Dr. Grinstead and the staff at VCA. We won't go anywhere else. Thank you everyone for being so kind, attentive and competent.

  • A Long History

    -Paula Caplinger from Sacramento, CA
    Pet Name: Barrett

    My wonderful dogs and I have been clients at SAMG since it was housed in trailers! On behalf of Snoopy, Fritz, Holly, Mitzi, Sami, and now Barrett, I offer heartfelt thanks for the caring expertise of the doctors and staff. Barrett is currently the mystery patient, and Dr. Grinstead is thorough and kind in working on helping her. Thank you so much to the patient techs who have to deal with her black toenails when she comes in for a 'paw-d-cure'. You are all GREAT!

  • In Today's Hurry Scurry World

    -Barbara Endicott from Sacramento, CA
    Pet Name: Nitro

    We may forget to give heartfelt thanks to those who have gone above and beyond to care for our sick animals. Dr. Garfield and staff were absolutely wonderful, patient, kind, knowledgeable and sympathetic. Dr. Garfield, in caring for our very sick little boy, took our upside down world and turned it sunny side up. He patiently explained what we were up against, listened (and heard) our worried concerns, was always honest yet optimistic. It was an extremely difficult time, made just a bit easier by the care and concern shown by Dr.Garfield. We can never thank him enough.
