Editorial review from Citysearch 10/18/2012

Adobe animal hospital in Ramona I never a good place to take your animals if you truly love them, we too a family dog there 2 years ago and it seemed like they couldn't wait to put her down because they would get $60 from us, we are happy to say we ran out of there and thanks to a little internet research and high valley vet our very happy/healthy dog is alive and well, I will never in my life recommend adobe to anyone, I makes me absolutely sick just driving past that hell hole. We even called them 2 weeks after the last visit to tell them to take our dog off their records and they said that they had her down as dead because they thought that they killed her, which I'm sure would have made them very happy, never ever go there, please! The life of your animals depends on it. more

We have been clients of Adobe Animal Hospital since early 2000. We use to take our pets to a clinic in Poway, now since we live in Ramona, we thought we would give Adobe a chance since our neighbor recommended them. Boy am I glad we made the switch! They are so up to date on veterinary medicine and they offer the best possible treatment. My akita recently had a tick on her shoulder, I removed it with tweezers and she became sick within days, she got sick with a tick-borne disease! Go figure, well Dr. Wood figured it out quickly and treated "Cindy" right away! Thank you Dr. Wood and staff of Adobe for saving our spoiled girl! more

5 star service! Dr. Wood is so caring & skilled with labs! We have 2 labs & would never take them to anyone else! Thanks Adobe for being there for "Della"& "Charley" Brink more

The Langford Family 11/23/2010

We have lived in Ramona for over 8 years, living in such a small community you get to know which businesses to use and which ones not to. Adobe Animal Hospital takes pride and is an honest business. Dr. Wood has been taking care of our standard poodle Isabella for 6 years and we would not take her to anyone else! Thank you Adobe for being the best vet for our girl! The Langford Family thanks you! more

RIP OFF!!! 11/8/2010

I am beyond irritated with this scam of a veterinarian! \r Their fees are absolutely outrageous. I I didn't mind paying them the first few visits but today threw me over the top. \r I started going here to get my ol' lab's ear infection treated. I spent over $300 the first visit and went home with some drops and antibiotics. The infection returned. I took her back and and dropped $400 for an ear culture and new medication. The infection returned in a month. Two weeks ago I dropped $577 for another injection, ear cleaning, drops and both types of meds. They asked me to return in two weeks for a follow-up check. That was today. I was outraged they they wanted to charge me $40 for that visit! For what?! After all the money I have spent that doesn't include a 5 minute follow up visit?! \r After this review I am contacting the Better Business Bureau to fie a complaint. \r THIS PLACE IS A SCAM!!!!! STAY AWAY!!! more

Chiropractic care for Goldens with hip problems! 8/5/2010

I have a golden retriever who has severe hip problems. I use to use a clinic in El Cajon and a friend suggested I try Dr. Greer for chiropractic care. She is great! Dr. Greer comes highly recommended by other veterinarians and my previous vet in El Cajon recommended her too since I asked him if he knows her and trained her while she became certified. Thank you Dr. Greer for caring and doing a great job on our golden! more

Adobe Animal Hospital is SUPER! 8/5/2010

Adobe Animal Hospital ROCKS!\r I went to another clinic for an ear hematoma surgery. I left very upset...My neighbor suggested I go to Adobe Animal Hospital. Sooo glad I did! Dr. Soares did the surgery the next day and it went PERFECT! I am a Nurse Practioner and I work @ Scripps and the care at the Animal Hospital is INCREDIBLE. Thank you for the surgical updates and taking the time to answer all of my questions! Gracie is happy and so am I! more

Bitter is as bitter does 7/8/2010

To Cheryl G.\r It is really sad to hear of your story. Especially since the exam is only once a year. You seem bitter about something other than this clinic. Any physician, including mine, would expect me to have a yearly physical to ensure that everything is going well. Every clinic that I have ever been to has done the same thing. I've been to the other 2 clinics in town before I began going to Adobe 11 yrs ago. One requested an exam for vaccines, and the other was just not adequate in their field and the front desk was just so hateful it was as if I was interrupting them every time I called them or walked in. Yes Adobe is a a bit more expensive, however, the doctors and staff far surpass any that I have gone to before. If you want to keep jumping clinic to clinic every year, aren't you paying for an annual exam ANYWAY? You keep skipping around, I'll keep Adobe. I don't mind paying for great care for my "kids".\r Gidget M more

'Annual Exam' scam 7/3/2010

We changed vets a couple of years ago after receiving poor customer service from our last vet. Since Adobe falls alphabetically at the beginning of the list we gave them a try. (That new building should be a major tip-off as to what you can expect your visit to cost.) And let me state that this 'exam' scam appears to be an industry-wide practice which began about 8 to 10 years ago. In the 80s and 90s it was the teeth cleaning scam - but you can't compel people to get their pets teeth cleaned, hence the 'annual exam' scam. Now in order for your pet to receive treatment - to even see a vet - you must pay $50 per pet, per year. You don't pay the fee, your pet won't be treated. This exam consists of nothing more than what you can expect from a scheduled appointment - check the two vitals (heart rate and temperature) and pop open you pet's mouth and exclaim, "Fluffy really needs her teeth cleaned." So what's up with this $50 fee? GREED! In an economy where everyone is feeling the pinch the more

Industry-Wide Practice 7/3/2010

Adobe AH employs what appears to be an industry-wide practice; a trend that started about 8 to10 years ago and that really amounts to nothing more than a membership or registration fee for your pet; much like the yearly fee you pay to the DMV or Costco and almost as expensive. YOU REFUSE TO PAY THIS MANDATED CHARGE - your pet will not see a vet. Not only will they ding you for this yearly non-service you didn't ask for, you'll have to pay for it again (and again and again) on each and every visit to their place of business. You know what I'm talking about, that 3-minute check your pet receives; temperature, heart rate and then they open their mouths and exclaim ""My, Fluffy really needs to have her teeth cleaned. If by some chance you've managed to get them to (""temporarily"") waive this fee, they'll call up at home like a bill collector to dun you for payment. And they wonder why I LOST it big-time. After all the thousands and thousands of dollar$ we spent on our animals during the last year with Adobe AH (and all the potential income they could have received in the future) they chose to dump us as customers. After I had already dumped them - the day before. Okay, Adobe, you really showed me. BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :D But they have a really, really, really nice building. Which will come in handy since you'll have a really, really, really long wait before your pet sees someone. Nope. Wouldn't recommend this group. Go to the next one on the list.

Caring Animal Hospital! 3/19/2010

My dog just had a tumor removal surgery last week. I was terrified the whole day when I had to leave "Jessie"! They reassured me that she was going to be ok and they would call me with updates. Well, sure enough they did call me 2 times with updates to reassure me! I am glad I had the surgery done and they truly care about your pet! more

Happy Customer 3/19/2010

My family has been bringing our cat "Sam" and our dog "Sadie" for 3 years. We have been very happy with the care our pets receive. They are very professional and caring and I love their follow up! Thanks Adobe for being the best Vet! more

I thought they were unprofessional 3/12/2010

I just took our dog to this vet. I thought our old vet was too into adding on everything they could do to put up the price. But this vet feels the same way. Then they called my vet to get our records - without asking my permission. I had to go to the phone and give verbal permission for the records to be sent but I didn't have to give permission for them to be requested. Then when I asked them why they hadn't asked me, they acted like I was being rude and it's standard procedure to not get permission. I was just asking a question and don't feel like I was being confrontational, but that's how I was treated. more

Adobe Animal Hospital is by far the best Vet Clinic 9/24/2009

Awesome Veterinary hospital! They truly care about you and your pet. They are the best in Ramona by far. They are always able to accommodate you and the Vets are very skilled and caring! more

Adobe is the best 6/15/2009

Excellent staff and vets!!! My dog Jake and my cat Beau will never go anywhere else while I live in Ramona. I can't say enough about the staff, they are the best.They even made a special trip to my house to drop off medicine we hadn't gotten while in the office. We had a recent scare with our dog Jake and they were terrific to us. They called to keep us updated on what was going on, to give us test results and to make sure he was doing OK. Highly recommend this vet office for both routine and emergency treatments. more

Very happy with my dogs' care! 12/22/2008

I've taken all of our dogs to Adobe at one time or another, both under emergency situations and for routine care, and every time I've been there I've found the vets to be kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. They are willing to work to keep costs down whenever possible and their primary concern is for the animal. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them! more

Adobe is the Best 12/9/2008

I had to have my Sam put down earlier this spring. She was 17 yrs. These people were the most compasionate people ever. I just got a 2 yr old St. Bernard Kira and I wouldn't even consider taking her anywhere else. Highly recommend Adobe Annie more

Excellent Customer Service 10/5/2008

Adobe Animal Hospital is an excellent hospital! I have been taking my rescued dog there for the last year and a half and have never had a bad experience. Always a friendly face at the counter when you arrive and all of the doctors answer all my questions and treat my dog with lots of respect and care! We had our dog neutered last year and I was a nervous wreck. I called every few hours and they always took the time to speak with me and give me detailed information. They have competitive pricing and everyone there is friendly and truly loves pets! more
