Editorial review from Citysearch 11/12/2012

This is a great place with a great staff. We have a Mastiff puppy and brought him in. Everyone was so helpful, kind, and easy to work with. All of our questions were answered and we really felt taken care of. We know they were great with our dog because he was excited to see the vet. techs when we brought him back in. Thanks a bunch! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/3/2012

Dr. Dhillon and his excellent staff are just wonderful. They stayed very late tonight to perform procedures on my beloved Trisha. Talk about thorough, knowledgeable and compassionate! I cannot recommend Dr. Dhillon highly enough! He has taken care of my foster dogs and my other pooches. He restored their health, and for that I am beyond grateful. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/9/2012

Highly Recommend!!! Dr. Dhillon is a truely great man. He has gone out of his way to treat my 15yr old cat Ninny even though I have little to no money. Making himself available to me morning till night, 7 days a week. Not to mention the awesome deal of $19.95 for the first exam, which you can't find anywhere. I feel so lucky to have found him and his helpful staff, thought I would share. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/30/2012

When we decided to get our first pup, I did quite a bit of research on which vet to take our pup. It seemed every single vet clinic nearby had some sort of flaw that pet owners complained about. I decided to call 5 different vets to price match and to see what type of info I'll get. Blk Mtn Rd Per Clinic not only had an affordable puppy package but Dr Dhillon also has an emergency line he personally answers any day from 6am to 10pm. more

Pretty sure these great reviews are 5/30/2012

Pretty sure these great reviews are fabricated. See the reviews on Yelp before you make the expensive decision to go. I probably should have looked at some of Dr. Dhillon's reviews before going. My lab has had ear infections for five years. I made an appointment for an ear infection and told the staff when I arrived that it was an ear infection. The staff did a test for ring worm. It was negative. Dr. Dhillon then seemed convinced that it was ear mites and pressured me into a $40.00 test for mites. It was also negative. He then seemed concerned that it was a which I called BS! My dog would have been in horrific pain if it were a foxtail. If he was suggesting this happy, healthy puppy had a foxtail piercing her inner eardrum and miraculously showed no signs of pain or discomfort, he was either a horrible veterinarian or a sheister. I said, enough with the needless tests...just give me the freakin' ear infection medication. So at the end of the day, I walked out of the clinic with the same ear infection medication that she has been prescribed for five years...only the total cost was four times as much as it regularly is. Don't be fooled by the $19.95 first time only means he is going to charge you an extra $20 bucks on top of everything else. I won't be coming back. :( more

Great personalized care 4/11/2012

I would like to thank you for all of the great personalized care which you provided for my dog Caesar. For nearly 14 years Caesar benefitted from your medical expertise, great care and devotion to his health. We now have a new puppy, Attila, which without hesitation I entrust his healthcare to you and your staff. Dr. Dhillon has always had an excellent bedside manner and demonstrates care and compassion with professionalism. He readily provides an explanation of the medical options for your pet. His staff is extremely caring, knowledgeable and has a devotion to the animals which come to the office. I strongly recommend this pet clinic to anyone who is looking for excellent pet care. Thanks again for your care of our pets both past and present. more

Recommended to any pet owner 4/11/2012

Dr. Dhillon has been taking great care of my animals for years now. Starting with my cat Damiaan and now with our two dogs London and Bandito. He always knows exactly what?s wrong and always prescribes the best care. Our puppies always get better immediately and we thank and appreciate him for that! I would recommend him to any pet owner! more

Above and beyond customer service 3/10/2012

Remarkable - The hidden jewel in So. Cal. pet care. We recently encounters a medical problem with our dog Peaches. The unexpected cost associated with her medical condition caused a great deal of anxiety and Dr Dhillon (and staff) picked up on my emotions and took every possible step to ease the burden. They offered multiple solutions and went above and beyond to ensure that Peaches got the much needed medical treatment. Dr. Dhillon we as far as to follow me to the parking lot to express his concern for Peaches and took extra time to make sure that I understood all financial options. In the end, we were able to proceed with the surgery and received treatment which far exceeded the money spent. Dr. Dhillon requested that we contact him multiple times, late into the evening, to give him updates on Peaches' recovery and offered comforting reassurance as to how she would progress thru her next few days of recovery. Additionally, he asked that we contact him, first thing, the following morning. When he sensed that my wife was reluctant to force feed medications, he suggested that she bring Peaches in where he again went above and beyond. Noticing that my wife was emotional, the requested that she leave Peaches with them for 1.5 hours and they made sure that she received the floods, food and medicine she needed. Less than 36 hours after her surgery, around 8:45pm, I received a 3rd follow up call from Dr. Dhillon personally. I was happy to report that she has progressed much faster than I expected; but right on the timeline he projected. She is at 70% of her normal self and I have EVERY confidence that she will be at the 90% Dr. Dhillon expects when we wake up tomorrow. I can honestly say; I have never seen anyone so passionate about their patience or customers. To know that Dr. Dhillon often works 7 days a week (after 25 years in his profession) and accepts calls from 7:00am thru 10:00pm is nothing short of a passionate Dr. who is a Godsend to any pet owner within driving distance of Black Mountain Road Pet Clinic. Above and beyond any customer service that we have ever experienced. The facility was very clean & organized, the staff were very accomidating, polite and compassionate. From the minute we walked in, for an unexpected surgery on our dog, until she was 100% recoverd; they continued following up and educating us every step of the way. It was clear that our pet's health was their number 1 concern.... more

Thank you Dr. Dhillon 2/20/2012

We are so happy with Dr. Dhillon and Black Mountain Road Pet Clinic! I have never had a vet take such an interest in a pet before. Dr. Dhillon calls regularly to check on our puppy when he is being treated for something. He really cares about our dog and we appreciate it so much. He is very accessible. He always gives options for payment and treatment and we never feel that we are being taken advantage of. The entire staff is caring, friendly and warm. Thank you Dr. Dhillon and Black Mountain Rd Pet Clinic! more

Worst animal doctor ever! 8/22/2011

I brought 3 year old cat with respiratory problem, no other symptoms. He promised to get x-rays and see what?s going on. 10 minutes later he came out and said that my cat doesn?t allow him to give a shot to calm him down. He said I can use a mask but because of respiratory problem it?s very dangerous and might be lethal. I was insisting on helping him to hold my cat down if his other 2 nurses/assistants cannot perform same thing. Doctor replied that even if I help him my cat still can bite him (my cat doesn?t have claws so he can?t scratch, as well as it has all shuts). I was furious. Veterinarian is afraid of the cat bite. What does he thinks when animals are agitated they are fuzzy and its doctor?s obligation to find a ways to perform such an easy tusk as administrates sedative through shot? This doctor - Dr.Dhillon ? told us to go to emergency room because they are professionals. I asked him if they are professionals and they can administrate a shot who the heck is he? He said I can say anything but he can not help our cat. I will report him to State board and will force investigation with possible suspension of his licence for refusing our pet a first medical response. Don?t go to this doctor if you really care about your animal. He advertise that He offers and performs ? ?Black Mt Rd. Pet clinic is a full serviced Veterinary Hospital with state of the art hospital facilities. The comprehensive services we offer include, pet health exams, dentals, low cost vaccinations, travel, microchipping, diagnostics, radiology, dermatology, surgery, house calls and emergency after-hour service.? What radiology, surgery, or emergency Dhillon is talking about if he cannot even perform a sedative shot? Update: We went to Sorento Valley Hospital, they gave our cat sedative through shot without any problem. more



Thank you Dr. Dhillon!!!! 12/23/2010

When we first met Dr Dhillon 5 months ago, we had no idea how quickly he would become invaluable to us and our new puppy Kobe. At our first visit, we were surprised to learn about the after hours care we could receive with Dr. Dhillon. It never occurred to us that we would be using that service 2 times within the next few months. We cannot express how much it meant to us to have someone so caring as Dr Dhillon and his staff take care of our puppy during these emergencies and not have to rush him to an emergency clinic where they don't know our family, including our Kobe. Thank you Dr. Dhillon and staff, for giving us the peace of mind of knowing that we always have your office to take Kobe, not only for great regular visits, but for after hour emergencies too! more

paws up from D'argo, Chiana and Misho 12/23/2010

Dr. Dhillon has been our pets' vet for about ten years. He runs a small clinic, so I feel that the service is very personalized and since he is the only doctor on staff, my pets always have a consistent experience. The office is clean, the assistants are always really nice and most importantly, everyone handles and treats my pets well. For a year or two, I tried getting my pets' shots done at a large-chain pet store because it was a little bit cheaper, however I quickly came back to Dr. Dhillon because I realized how important it was to see the same doctor in the same office all the time. Each year, my pets come to the same building, wait in the same exam room, see the same people and smell the same smells. It makes them less nervous during their routine visits, and in the event that they get sick, it will be important that my pet knows the doctor and that the doctor, in turn, knows my pet. Dr. Dhillon also offers extended, emergency on-call hours, in case we really need him outside of regular office times. In the past I have had experiences with veterinarians who handle the pets like they are farm animals, pinning them down and not seeming to notice or care whether they are scared or uncomfortable. Dr. Dhillon is extremely gentle. Yes, at times he has to do unpleasant procedures on the pets, but he definitely demonstrates care and compassion. I really trust Dr. Dhillon and so do my pets. He offers everything I value in a veterinary clinic. more

Pet vet doctor ever! 12/17/2010

Today was my first time taking my pit bull to this clinic and i love it! The Dr.Dhillon was amazing with our dog. He never judge it just because it was a ""pit bull"" The drive there was worth it. My boy had a sallowen leg because of him falling out of a truck window and when he check my dog out he said he wouldnt have us pay for things that were not needed. I love this dr, and im going to keep going to him! He also help out because of our money budget. He is always a understand person when it comes to our animals. more

A devoted client since 1988 12/15/2010

We have taken our pets to the A Black Mountain Road Pet Clinic since we moved to San Diego in 1988 and over the years we have had 3 dogs and 7 cats. Dr. Dhillon and his staff have consistently provided excellent veterinarian service both as preventative health care and when critical care was needed. They have provided excellent explanations of the treatments recommended and the various treatment options, allowing us to choose the desired course of action. Our pets are always treated with respect and kindness. I continue to recommend Dr. Dhillon, Sara and the entire staff to my friends. Our pets have enjoyed healthy and long lives thanks to their care. more

Great Vet 11/6/2010

Dr. Dhillon, just writing you to thank so much for the work you have done on our dog Luke after his devastating rattle snake bite to his lip. At one point we thought he was going to pass, and your work brought him back to give him a fighting chance. Your dedication in working after and before your normal hours, on Sunday in which you clinic is closed and your constant follow up with me and the emergency hospital is truly amazing and appreciated. Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime. more

Dr. Dhillon recommendation 11/6/2010

Dr. Dhillon at Black Mountain Ranch Pet Clinic offers affordable, professional, respectful, competent, and heartfelt care of animals and their owners. He goes above and beyond what any other vet would provide---offering clear explanations of what your pet is going through, patience in answering questions (during & after office hours), realistic prognosis & excellent follow-up care based on over 20 years of experience. When our senior cat grew ill, we were concerned about the cost and quality of her healthcare. Prices are fair and Dr. Dhillon actually cares! Dr. Dhillon and his stafff are clearly focused on their mission to respectfully care & heal animals, and support pet owners along the way in making the difficult decisions regarding petcare for aging animals. more

Saved my cat's life 11/6/2010

Dr. Dhillon and his friendly staff have been performing exams, dental cleanings, shots and minor surgery on my two cats (Mom and son, ages 12 & 11 respectively) for many years. Recently, my male cat had difficulty urinating, was diagnosed with Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). Dr. Dhillon and his staff saved my cat's life by giving him the needed care. As an employee of a major pet specialty store chain, I want the best care for my animals, my pets have received quick, friendly service from Dr. Dhillon and his staff. Regarding fees, before finding this pet clinic, I was going to a different vet in PQ, they quoted a much higher cost to have a growth removed from my female cat's paw many years ago. I've only brought my pets to Black Mountain Rd. Pet Clinic since. My male cat is doing well, I continue to be a loyal customer here! more

Dr. Dhillon's Black Mountain Road Pet Clinic is The Best 9/18/2010

We moved to San Diego in 2003 and tried a vet clinic in the neighborhood, but we didn't feel comfortable with it. A few weeks later we found Dr. S.S. Dhillon's ""A Blackmountain Road Pet Clinic"" and use it ever since on a regular basis for our dog, our two cats and our guest dogs. more

I strongly recommend Dr. Dhillon and Staff! 9/6/2010

We have been so pleased with Dr. Dhillon and Black Mountain Pet Clinic we would strongly recommend them to anyone who loves their pets. Our cat of 9 years was sick and Dr. Dhillon met us at his office on a Sunday morning. After tests we determined that our cat would not get better, only worse. What a difficult time it was for our family and Dr. Dhillon took the time to patiently explain what was happening several times so we could make a decision we were comfortable with. We even received a phone call from the doctor making sure we had all of our questions answered. Only a month later our other cat got sick, again the doctor met us after hours, 8 p.m. on a Saturday night, to evaluate our cat. He gave us a phone call later that night to make sure our cat was okay and wanted me to call the next day with an update. I felt and know he truly cares about us and our pets and that this is not a job for him, but his passion and purpose. I feel very grateful to have met him during such a trying time more
