You can't find better vet with the fair price in Bay Area. Had quotes all over 3k for my boy cherry eye surgery. Finally had done it here with a better price and great outcome.

First visit wad for skin treatment ended up with a $520 bill. Then was told to come back for follow up visit 2 months later that ended up costing another $264 for the same skin treatment that never worked in the first place. Definitely not recommending anyone or will be back again ever. See posted invoices

I chose this place because my vet has no availability in next two weeks. The service was OK but the price is at least 30% higher than other places. The vet is trying to persuade me to let my dog take many exams/vaccines/tests, and I felt like he was a salesman rather than a vet. I don't think I'll go back again.

This place just wants your money. I am a new dog owner and was trying to be responsible and take the best care of my new family member. I just moved to the area and wanted to establish a new vet for my dog. He was 10.5 MONTHS old when the vet told me he needed a dental cleaning. I trusted Dr. Bajwa to take good care of us especially me being new to owning a pet and I'm clearly still learning. I found out by one of the front desk receptionist after check out that the dental only took 5 min because my dog has no tartar build up and that all my dogs adult teeth haven't even fully grown in yet. And I paid almost 400 bucks for that visit for my dog to get his puppy teeth cleaned when they are going to fall out in a couple months? The doctor refused to speak to me and has yet to return my calls.

Provided extra treatment just to up the bill. Never discuss with us on what treatments will be provided, nor how much those treatments would cost. After checking online to see how much other people pay for the same treatments, which are between $100-$200, we feel cheated, because we paid twice that!!! Stay away from this place. Did I mention poor customer service? It's about the worst customer service you can get. We just needed the treatment/visit notes for insurance purposes, and we were told the vet is too busy and can't provide it in a timely manner. Well, if that's the case, have less visits scheduled and spend some time on taking care of your current customers. FYI, first review I have written online ever, if I could I would have given zero stars.

They were so quick and inexpensive so hard with no one else to help me for 2 days when my dog has kennel cough I am so thankful for their service and their kindness I would definitely recommend over every other emergency our service in the county

Dima is amazing!!!!!!! I was reluctant to turn my pet over to anyone due to the fact that I treat my cat like the child I never had. She made me feel comfortable with her services. Her apparent love for animals shines through.

I'm military, stationed out of country. I came home, and immediately took our dog here. We were seen by a Punjabi doctor, who collected samples for lab work on our dog and presceibed meds. This place prescribed high dosage, low amounts = $$. We were told results would arrive within 2 days. Almost a week later, no response about the results. When I pursued them, the doc said his lab results were fine, reluctant to provide paperwork. I had to return so my fam took over, and my dog's condition worsened. We tried a new Vet, they immediately did lab work to verify, and contacted here to compare, but turns out Calaveras never did the lab. My dog was prescribed high dosage of meds by Calaveras, which in turn was shutting his system down. Your methods were slowing killing my dog and trying to drain our pockets. We spent approximately $1k within 1 month just to see that your service was not worth my dog's life. That's a form of positive perspective, enjoy your karma and all that entails. And please don't respond with some fictious message, attempting to personalize it by implementing my name in the message, when the template is the same for every customer. Glad to see the true care you provide for our military community.

Dr Anderson, pet nurse Dima and their staff treat your pet as they would their own! We have been coming to Dr. Anderson for well over 20 years. We have a frenchy a very special breed not easy to care for HOWEVER, Dr A and Dima have ALWAYS given her the special attention and love she requires when she is there. Their prices are fair and quality of service and care is exceptional!

Very bad experience. The staff are very careless and irresponsible. My cat got spayed last Friday at Calaveras vet clinic. They asked me dropped off my cat by 8am and picked her up at 4pm. I called twice to check in how my cat worked and they told me she was doing really well. But when I finally picked her up they told me that she was in a very bad condition due to anesthesia allergy. She was totally freaked out. I was very disappointed at the miscommunication. They could tell me the truth sooner over the phone instead of tell me the truth when things could already have gone wrong. When I got home I found that a clip from ECG was left under my cat's right foreleg which made me lose all trust of this vet clinic.

Dr. Bajwa and Anderson have provided the best care for my boy Chulo. They always answer any of my questions and you can tell they truly care about the wellness of our animals. Thank you to them and the amazing staff.

This place used to be good until the recent ownership change and turned into a $2,800 mistake. 11/9/2020: took my pet there for dental scaling and polish ~$600. I picked up my pet 2 hours after they told me she was ready to go. When I got there, I noticed my pet was breathing heavily and didn't looked right, so I asked the doctor to take a look. Dr. Bajwa took a look and said she was fine. 11/9/2020 Night-time: my pet did not look normal and was still breathing heavily, so I took her to Sage emergency and chest x-ray showed that she had pneumonia from the dental cleaning and needed to stay overnight for monitoring. The emergency visit was $1700 because Calaveras didn't noticed anything wrong with her when she was in the cage not doing well for 2 hours and the doctor didn't think there was anything wrong with her when I asked. 11/10: Call Calaveras and spoke to the office manager and explained the issue. The office manager apologized, but said the Dr. Bajwa is out of the office until Thursday and that she'll have the doctor call me first thing Thursday morning to see what they can do about the emergency bill. 11/12: Thursday - no call from the doctor 11/17: I called Calaveras to speak with the office manager again, she apologized and said she forgot to talk to the doctor last week. After the call, the office manager apparently called Dr. Bajwa and updated the doctor on the situation. I received a call back from the office manager and said the Dr. Bajwa will call me first thing Thursday morning when he returns to the office. 11/18: Follow-up appointment for my pet to make sure the pneumonia is cleared, the bill was $500. 11/19: No call from the doctor as promised. 11/24: Didn't hear back from the doctor or anyone from the clinic. The result is a $2,800 mistake and pet that felt miserable for 2 weeks. She is just finally starting to resume her daily activities.

Dr. Anderson was very honest about what our cat needed to have done versus not with us. Very friendly staff and doctor.

We’ve taken our two cats and dog to Dr. Anderson for years and I can’t say enough how great he, Pam and the rest of the staff are!!! Their caring, knowledge and friendliness have helped us tremendously! 5 stars isn’t enough, if I could give 1000 stars I would! All I can say is if you’re looking for a Quality vet team led by an amazing Vet Dr., Calaveras Vet Clinic is the one!

My calls are never taken seriously. The woman who answered the phone laughed at the fact that my diabetic cat hasn't eaten for 2 whole days from his surgery and told me to keep feeding him treats. I reiterated that he was diabetic and can't have whatever I have in the fridge, then she told me she would ask the vet about it and call me back. 2 hours passed and I heard nothing. I went to my cat's other vet who was able to help and offered more pain medication. I only went here because the extractions were cheap. There was never any follow up calls to see how he's doing. Also, his blood work took 3 days before I got the results prior to his dental and extractions.

It's hard to find a good vet. It is even harder to find a great rabbit savvy vet. My bunnies are very lucky to Dr. Anderson care for them.

I have taken my dog, Penelope, many many times here and they treat her so well. The last time I went was for a dental cleaning and they left my girls teeth sparkly clean and fresh breath!!. They did a beautiful job with her as well as cut her nails. ❤️❤️❤️

Wonderful experience! When I first step through the doorway, I was greeted with beautiful smiles and great customer service. The place was very clean. The doctor was very knowledgeable and patient. Took time to get to know my English bulldog from head to toe. Even helped clean his ears. Dr. Anderson is amazing!!!! I’m forever grateful. I’m very picky when it comes to my dog. If your looking for a vet clinic look no further, this place is awesome. Great team!!!!!
