Editorial review from Citysearch 4/1/2013

We had to put or Mikey down last night. It was tough he was 17. The people at the clinic where very courteous professional and caring. I called before our arrival to ask rates and other questions. They charged me exactly what I was quoted. As soon as my family and I walked in they immediately took care of us. I do recommend them if you need them. more

Awesome Vet 1/27/2012

This vet is so good I would use Dr. Gunderson as my regular vet if I could. She has such compassion and a kind and gentle soul for all the animals that come in. She has been with me when I have had to make that ultimate difficult decision to let my baby go in peace and she sat with my family, even cried with us. The person who commented on not getting served fast enough or not being allowed to use the restroom.... Well, they most likely had an emergency happening at that moment, and since I have used the restroom there, I can tell you that it is past the area where they would be working on the emergency and for that reason they would not allow you back there where they were working to save a life. It would be like walking through an operating room during surgery. I tell everyone I know to take their pets there. more

Unprofessional, accusatory, lacking all tact 8/9/2011

First, let me say this: The receptionist staff at this clinic are wonderful. I have no problems with those nice girls. My problem is with one of the part-time ""vet's"" that works at this location. ""Dr"" Cheryl Gunderson has absolutely no professionalism, not in her demeanor nor in her appearance. I wouldn't have cared about her appearance had she been more compassionate/respectful toward my situation. My pet, diagnosed w/a terminal illness but remains healthy now, needed pain medication for an adjustment period to a new medication regimen on a day when her regular vet was closed. Instead of respecting that I have my pet under the care of a vet whom is closely monitoring her condition & currently happy w/ her current state of health, she implied I was being dishonest about my pet's current condition,& told me I should put my pet to sleep now. I was mortified that this was her solution to an issue that was not even tied to the disease! I will NEVER go back. Shame! more

Dr. Wishnack is the best 6/2/2011

I have had to take my dog here twice now to have foxtails removed from her ears. It is a painful thing and she was in a lot of stress and pain. Dr. Wishnack was great both times in removing them and leaving her very happy. Although any vet visit is not cheap, it is worth going here knowing your animal is in great hands! more

BEST after hours Vet Care ANYWHERE! Love these guys! 1/4/2011

I just googled to get their phone number and I have to add a comment. We have used them several times over the years for our 17yo cat and 2 dogs. I was shocked to see the negative comment from Kristinb. I LOVE the vets and techs at the emergency clinic - even better than our regular vets! They have given us exceptional service in emergency and non-emergency cases. Right now I am taking in my cat who's been deteriorating all day. I have absolutely NO fear about being oversold treatment I can't afford or that won't be appropriate for our situation. In fact I feel much better HERE than I would at our regular vet! They've always been very open and frank with us about treatment options and when we've needed it (more than once) have been very flexible and generous on prices and payments. more

The best in Town! 7/25/2010

The best animal hospital in town. Dr. Terry Prescell, saved my dog! She is remarkable and a true animal lover. Their prices are very reasonable since they are an EMERGENCY FACILITY, they would be higher then a regular vet, after all your vet is not open all night! If your vet had to open at night for your emergency I bet it would be twice or maybe three times the amount that the Animal Emergency Clinic charges. I have 4 dogs and 2 birds, and I am so happy that the Animal Emergency Clinic is there for my "kids" more

VERY GRATEFUL FOR THIS HOSPITAL & STAFF! 6/21/2010

I had a WONDERFUL experience with this emergency clinic!The comments the person wrote about them "gouging" them is so ridiculous! All of her comments were, for that matter! The comments should be deleted! These people saved my dog's life when he was bitten by a rattlesnake. They were sincere and treated us kindly and most importantly knew what they were doing and helped my dog! Maybe the other person should look into pet insurance if she can't afford to take care of her dog! I will definitely go back to them if I have another pet emergency and I have already had friends go to them, as well, who were very pleased and grateful for their services!! more

Best ever animal hospital 6/14/2009

This place was amazing. We've had experience with two other animal emergency hospitals, and they were awful. This is a family-run business, and you can tell. I had to take my dog in the day after our first late-night visit because he wasn't improving, and they only charged me $35 for the second visit. They also called a couple of days later to check on his progress. Service above and beyond and priced MUCH better than any vet I've ever been to. more

Do not take your pet to this facility 5/15/2009

My dog was mauled by the neighbors dog and I rushed it to this facility. They told me the dog would be paralyzed and extensive abdominal injuries. I told them to put the dog to sleep and asked if I could say good-bye. They charged me $400.00 and put us in a room for at least 45 minutes. Still no dog. I was suffering from a Kidney infection and asked to use the restroom and was denied. I became irrate and asked to see my dog who still was not put to sleep. These people are money gouging, inconsiderate, and rude. They care nothing for the people or the animals they propose to treat. Do not take your animal there. I am only rating 1 star because they forced a rating on this site. If I could take them to court for some reason I would do it. more

Poway Animal Emergency Clinic 5/10/2009

The people at the Poway Animal Emergency Clinic did a great job handling our pet emergency. They worked quickly and were able to get the situation under control right away. They were very professional as well as very kind to us. I have recommended them to friends. more

Great Care for our Dog 4/26/2009

We were referred to Poway Animal Emergency Clinic (by our vet's voicemail message) when our dog started having seizures late one night. The staff at the emergency clinic were thorough and professional. They ran several tests, prescribed treatment and referred us back to our primary vet the next day. They faxed the paperwork/reports to our vets office right away as well. We appreciated their efforts which resulted in great continuity of care for our dog. more

Good care 2/1/2009

My husband took our dog here after he got hit by a car. We were glad they were close by and open late hours of the night. They took good care of him and we were very comfortable and happy with their work. We would definitely take him back here if needed. more

Not impressed 12/22/2008

We had to take our dog here when she was in a serious accident and while the quality of the work itself was good, the doctors and staff seemed far more concerned with gouging us for all they could get under a very trying time rather than being understanding in a crisis. I felt like they were more interested in our bank balance than our dog. more
