New at ACC 10/15/2010

Animal Care Clinic announces new services in 2010 to help them to continue to provide the up-to-date family oriented veterinary care that you and your pets deserve. Advanced digital radiography is now available to all patients. Digital radiography is faster and less stressful for pets, provides much more diagnostic information for doctors and allows Animal Care Clinic to easily share images with owners and other veterinarians. Dr. Greg Marsolais, a board certified veterinary surgeon, is now providing advanced orthopedic and soft tissue services at Animal Care Clinic. This means your pet can undergo these procedures without having to leave the area and while still enjoying the excellent medical support and customer service that Animal Care Clinic is famous for. For more information check out animalcareclinicslo,com or find ACC on Facebook. more

Would you like Fries with that? 12/16/2009

The question isn't about great care . . .though the doctors here are as good as any other in the Central Coast area, there unfortunately are lots of inept new hire newbies here that break their teeth in on longterm clients that are starting to seek Vet care elsewhere due to the ""do you want fries with that"" approach that this facility seems to practice almost as much as Mcdonalds ""would you like that supersized?"" practices. Of course, if you noticed, McDonalds ceased the use of the ""supersize"" when enough advertisement of that little phrase was out and about to cause harm to the business. Now they ask if you want the med or large when ordering those meals. Animal Care needs to stop gouging the clients that are attempting to seek medical care for their pets. What they ""mark up"" on labs and additional not necessarily necessary tests etc is getting a bit over the top. Especially when the staff is constantly being turned and the newbies are as empty on experience as they can get. Paying the kind of money for vet care that this place charges should come with red carpet and pampering of the pet owners along with the pet. Those rave reviews that you read here about ACC come from those who are working there and have been encouraged to go online and post a positive review. One employee is so niave she actually admitted to being an employee right there in the review. I am sure Dr. Markoff roled her eyes with that one thinking, good job newbie . . I didn't say identify yourself as an employee . . that makes the review worthless! \r \r Change your tune ACC or you might just show up on you tube one day with a list of charges for vet service being advertised along side comparison vets in your area. Pros: Doctors for the most part are skilled Cons: It will cost you an arm and a leg to save fluffy's! more

OUTSTANDING practice 9/12/2009

I just love the place! They're efficient, knowledgable, VERY skilled, and every employee is trained to answer questions. Apparently the above mentioned review by ""lovemydogmore"" needs to review their life a little better and remember that this practice is here to SAVE animals. If something was detected early on, they would have found it and treated it. It obviously didn't happen the way this owner explains it. They run tests that are needed to provide answers. Dogs can't tell us what hurts. I'm sure the doctors are playing ""detective"" all the time. I'm sure it's always a mystery as to what's wrong with the pet. Keep that in mind when you go to the Vet's office. The tests are for a REASON...to find a solution. Anyway, I LOVE THE PLACE!! Pros: Genuine love for my dog, caring, compasionate Cons: nothing! more

They Are The Best! 8/5/2009

The doctors and nursing team at Animal Care Clinic are the best. I am an employee at ACC and have worked at many other hospitals. This is the best working environment I have ever experienced. I love coming to work because I know that we will be taking excellent care of every pet and pet owner that comes in. We even have a complete in-house training program that every employee is engaged in as long as they are employed! I love learning. So many cases are referred here by other veterinarians because our doctors are so skilled and we have wonderful equipment and facilities. I am blessed to work here. Pros: Outstanding medicine, compassionate, Love Pets!!! more

Our Pugs Love Animal Care Clinic 7/25/2008

Our pugs have seen all the vets at Animal Care Clinic and we think they are all great. The receptionists are terrific, too. Very friendly and helpful and knowledgable. We were traveling out of state and needed the pugs health records faxed, so we could board them. Julie, the receptionist, had the records out in a jiffy, saving us much time and concern. When our Zasu had a bad reaction to her annual shot, they reacted immediately and saved her life. They are caring and professional. I worked as a vet assistant and know what a good veterinary practice should be. Animal Care Clinic is one of the best. more

EXCELLENT, PROFESSIONAL, AND COMPASSIONATE ANIMAL CARE 5/14/2008

I HAVE WORKED AT AND TAKEN MY PETS TO SEVERAL VETERINARY FACILITIES ON THE CENTRAL COAST AND 2 ER CLINICS ON THE CENTRAL COAST. HANDS DOWN, ANIMAL CARE CLINIC PROVIDES SUPERIOR MEDICAL CARE IN EVERY ASPECT. THE ENTIRE STAFF(RECEPTION, NURSING, KENNEL, AND VETERINARIANS) GO ABOVE AND BEYOND TO PROVIDE THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE FOR EACH ANIMAL AND THEIR OWNERS. I HAVE ALSO BEEN TO 2 SPECIALTY CLINICS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WHICH BOTH AGREED WITH THE TREATMENT MY PET WAS RECEIVING FROM THE VETS AT ANIMAL CARE CLINIC. IF YOU WANT THE BEST CARE FOR YOUR PETS, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ACC! more

TERRIBLE VETS!!!!! Ripoff!!! Cursory Exams!!!! Unnecessary tests!!!! 5/2/2008

If you love your dog or cat don't ever go to Animal Care Clinic in SLO. They failed to detect a tumor in my dog and ""watched tests"" for months without acting when one ER visit to a REAL vet told me everything about what needed to happen for my dog's care. I wasted hundreds at Animal Care Clinic over months and never would have known that my dog needed serious medical attention if I hadn't gone to an ER. From one ER visit I found out more than half a dozen visits to the Animal Care Clinic. Cons: Cursory Exams, Unnecessary tests, Expensive more

Pushy on procedure that may not be necessary 4/17/2008

I brought my cat in with an abscess on his arm, which I know is common for cats to get when they've either been in a fight or had some other kind of puncture wound (we live in a very brushy area and the cat is an outdoor cat). I have had experience with this with other cats and know that in most cases they just need to be drained and given antibiotics. I asked the staff to please do both of these for my cat and they highly recommended X-rays to be sure the infection didn't go to the bone. I told them I didn't think this was necessary as a first step and that I would keep an eye on it. They pressured me heavily at the time, as well as with 2 more ""scare tactic"" phone calls through the day while my cat was there being treated. I had to get a little harsh on the phone with the vet I was working with and tell them to please not call again asking to do Xrays, as I would bring the cat back if he didn't heal with the draining and antibiotics (I had caught the swelling early and it was not an extreme case by any means). I was put off by their insistence on unnecessary and expensive treatment for a minor issue.\r When speaking about my experience to a friend who knew very well a previous employee, I was informed this employee left because this clinic is very much run like a business that pressures their vets to be salespeople for procedure, and they can even get penalized for NOT selling enough procedure. This broke my trust completely with this vet and I don't feel I would ever know if they were advising the right health care for my pet or just advising what would make them more money. I find this to be very dishonest, especially in the realm of medical care.\r That said, I believe Dr. Markoff and staff to be very knowledgeable and skilled if your pet does need extensive surgery/treatment, and the facility is probably one of the most sophisticated in SLO. But I would advise getting a 2nd opinion before getting pressured into extensive/expensive procedures from this clinic. more
