Best service at reasonable prices

Oct 31, 2013 by Karen J.

We have had several dogs and cats over the 30+ years we have lived in Santa Cruz, and as a result have lots of experience with several vets. Veterinary care here in SC is very expensive so we have been pleasantly surprised with the reasonable prices at Companion.

The service from the front desk, to the staff to the doctors has been fantastic. They truly care about our pets' health and well-being, and are kind and caring to the humans as well. Dr. Horne resolved an on-going skin condition in one of our dogs as well as UTI issue with one of our cats.

I am very appreciative of their Sunday hours and their flexibility of seeing our animals if we have an urgent need.

One final word of praise for their front desk receptionist Karen: she is one of the warmest, kindest and most sincere people I know. We would come to Companion just because she works there! She's truly that amazing.

When I had an emergency with my cat, I took a chance to walk in to Companion Animal Hospital. I was greeted by a friendly tech, but they were booked up with other clients. However, the lady was so nice that she called 2 other local vets to see if they could accomodate me. She got me an appointment down the street, and the cat is fine. THEY REALLY CARE! THAT IS GREAT SERVICE

Very nice and very helpful

They gave excellent service. My dog had limpoma one of them ruptured. My dog recovered quickly and they did a very thorough job. She also got a dental cleaning. I was very pleased. Everyone is very nice and very helpful. I would recommend Companion Animal Hospital.

Really there for their patients AND the owners!!

I have recently had a couple of emergencies with my dog, and Companion Animal Hospital was there for both of us one hundred percent. First of all, they were very reassuring over the phone when I called in about the problem initially. We went in the next day because the situation wasn't life or death, and when we got there I saw that Dr. Horne and his amazing supporting staff are so caring with all of their patients, as well as the owners. They are really sensitive to owners if there's something horribly wrong. For my dog's more minor surgery, Dr. Horne still took his time showing me all of the x-rays and explaining absolutely everything.

Everyone there is so accommodating, too! When I got stuck across town and had to pick up medication one time, the receptionist, Karen, sat there in the office and waited for me until I arrived. They're also open 7 days a week, which I appreciate so much.

The big plus is the fact that my two dogs who hate going to vets walk right into the building here! They can sense that they're in good hands in the exam room, and don't struggle like they did at other vets. I've never seen them so calm during treatments.

I heartily recommend his services.

Dr Horne was a godsend for my female dog's need for surgery and care that no other vet would provide. I am truly thankful for his and his staff's kindness. I heartily recommend his services.

Grade A service.

From the moment they picked up the phone this place has been nothing but friendly grade A service. They got me in on a Sunday with very little notice, which was critical as my boy was having a problem that I thought I might have to pay emergency fees for.

They also figured out my boy was having an allergic reaction not a hematoma as I had thought. This was great as they treated him properly which got his symptoms under control fast and now he's very happy and back to his normal pretty self (instead of a having a fat ear :).

Fair prices too. Once again great staff from the front desk to the doctor.

Very Helpful

I've been going to Companion Animal Hospital for the past three months. I've been going a lot and the staff has been kind and helpful each time I've walked in there. I feel like they've been very thorough and they've provided a lot of great feedback. I had been going to other vets who were unable to help with my pet's allergy issues. I appreciate all that Companion Animal Hospital has done to help me.

Overall, I think they are great.

I brought two cats to Companion Animal Hospital. I had been with another vet for twenty years, but their prices kept increasing, and with less service. So I tried out Companion because they were open on Sunday. I later adopted a stray dog, and he had some viral infection. They did a good job treating that. I decided to have him neutered there later. They were good with the follow-up, and called to check on him, and gave me free advice over the phone. I've elected to have all my files sent to their office, and will be using them in the future. The only reason I didn't give them five stars, is because I felt surprised at the bill. They told me up front what the service would cost, and asked me if I wanted this or that, so when I said yes, the bill increased, but they never specifically mentioned the charge for each additional service. I think it's something that other customers should be aware of. Overall I think they are great.

I would recommend them highly. Both vets there are excellent. The staff, which is the people who I speak to when I come in, leave, and call, are excellent. They are the most caring staff I've come across, and I've been to other places. I'm delighted with my good fortune.

They're great.

I'll tell you this, everyone who works there at Companion Animal Hospital, from the counter person who does invoices and answer phones, to the animal techs and those who take temperatures and help with surgeries, to the doctors, are awesome. They really are compassionate people.

I have been a customer for over 20 years and have seen some changes in their company over the years. Certain techs and doctors leave and new ones come in, but they always have been good. I missed those that left but am pleased with the new ones that come. I have a good history of knowledge of them. Their doctors are good. They do good work.

One thing that really bothers me, and this is not exclusive to them but to the entire veterinarian industry, is the cost. Sometimes the fees are very expensive. For some people, that prohibits them from doing certain things for their pets. Companion Animal Hospital, I have noticed, is willing to work with you if you explain your situation. They will help you do the best you can with the funds available, and I can't say that about everyone in the area.

My cat is on antibiotics, my dog is on antibiotics, and my cat is getting a major oral cleaning very soon, and they're good. They do everything, so I am really pleased. They are compassionate, loving people with pets of their own. They're great.

We'd love to help you and your pet too. (831) 425-1970
