Always satisfied with the service received for my pet. When we started coming my dog had cancer in the mouth and was given 7 months to live from my local vet. After treatment from California Veterinary Specialist personnel, my dog is now in remission.

The care my dog received was good, but the wait was really long. We went in at 1 pm. finally got to see the vet around 3:30. He needed to have an abscess drained so sent me home to come back in a few hours. I kept waiting and waiting. Due to other emergencies, his surgery didn't happen until 10:30 pm and the pick up time was 1 am. They were kind and kept him until 7:30 am. Cost was as expected for an ER, except the culture was going to be $300. They said they send the test out and cannot control the cost of that test..

They appear to be undergoing a transition, apparently the group of vets who own them sold out to VCA, a corporate veterinary group. My regular vet worked at a place sold to VCA and I didn't like it at all so followed my regular vet elsewhere. I'll keep my eyes open about future changes.

Opthalmology was excellent. Our Shihtzu’s eye is healing nicely.

California Vet Specialists is just the best. The doctors are top notch, experienced and very knowledgeable. And the staff is always patient and wonderfully kind. I can't say enough positive about this wonderful group. My animals are blessings in my life and I trust them implicitly to California Veterinary Specialists.

To begin with, JosieMae is the smallest and youngest of our 4 dogs. And as such, she is our baby, our princess. Her back injury was an extremely emotional experience for us and we weren't sure if JosieMae would even recover. However the staff at the Murrieta office and Carlsbad office were not only very knowledgeable and comforting but they were also very empathetic to us during this very trying time. JosieMae's back surgery went much better then we expected and in just 2 weeks, she is actually starting to walk on her own ! The doctors that we interacted with included Dr. Dhupa,who performed the surgery, Dr. Osggod and Dr. Carr. They were so understanding and helpful that words cannot convey how grateful and appreciative we are for them fixing our little one. And because JosieMae had problems urinating, we brought her into the Murrieta office daily and sometimes twice a day to assist with expressing Josie's bladder. They were patient, caring and understanding. The staff at Murrieta and Carlsbad are truly the best in the business. THANK YOU CVS !!

We have had great experiences with both our dogs at CVS. I wouldn’t take my pups anywhere else for specialized care.
