Dr. D' Sousa was wonderful with us and Barney. She's is very thoughful and took a lot of time and explained everything. We could tell that Barney likes her and that's a good thing. Thanks you.

I have been bringing my dogs to Lifetime Animal Care for over 20 years. They have always treated us and our pets with understanding and care.

I love this place! Great care for my dogs with excellent advice and tips on overall health and care. Recently put my 2 dogs on their monthly "Paw Program" that covers many of the usual fees like Heartworm tests, thyroid, dental, vaccines, spay/neuter, etc. We also used them to put our beloved Muneca to sleep last year. She had cancer and tumors rapidly taking over her body.. We miss her so much. Lifetime Animal provided us with her ashes, paw print and a Certificate. We Highly recommend Lifetime!

Lifetime is a great place to take your pet. Very nice and kind reception assistants. Dr D'souza is very good at what she does, professional, and obviously loves animals.

Always 5 ⭐️ review! I’ve been taking my doggies there for over 10 years and they have been there for me when Ive had a few doggies pass away. They truly have your best interest and your pets at heart! They have affordable monthly plans to help care for your animals!!!! I highly recommend!!!!

My aging cat received an extremely thorough examination by Dr. Gianopoulos and I appreciate the amount of time she took to explain her findings, and also Dr. D'Souza for her explaining the results of the tests. Cassandra got along well with my cat, who is not always easy to get along with. I appreciated her cheerfulness and helpfulness.

This is a very busy clinic. Merlot had been trying to fight off a nasty ear infection but we finally were overtaken by it. Appointments were too far off to be booked but Sue was on it and was able to get him in in 2 days. He is sad because his 3 to 4 days at Fiesta Island are on hold for 2 weeks but we are on the mend and counting the days for his return to the island.

Warm, friendly staff. Arrived a couple minutes early and seen shortly after. In for a quick booster shot, so it was fast

My dog Beazlie had a mass on his and and on his chest that needed to be removed and biopsied. They scheduled the appointment in a timely fashion, took great care of him during and after the procedure. Dr. De Souza is knowledgeable, informative and has a down to earth approach which is calming when needed:). I appreciate that.

So I’ve been coming here for years. The veterinarian is always super nice but the front desk staff is horrible. I asked them to reschedule an appt since I needed to go out of town. No big deal. But they only scheduled one dog and I have 2. They needed just a booster shot. It takes what, 30 seconds to give a dog a shot? Well they refused to get both dogs within the 15 minute period. When I asked to if it was ok the booster wouldn’t be within the correct time frame they said I would have to repay for them to administer the shot. That makes no sense. I called 2 days before the appointment to reschedule but they said the appointment was only for one dog. Then when I said we’ll keep the appointment but both need the shot I was suddenly the bad guy. They immediately sent all my vet records (which they should have had way more since we’ve been going there for years) and told me to find a new vet. Horrible service. Won’t recommend to anyone ever again. Super disappointed and hope they get new staff. They were rather expensive anyways but it was worth it because the vet was so good with my dogs but now, it outweighs the positive.

Thank you for a wonderful first visit with my puppy! You were so kind and gentle with him and I know he will feel comfortable coming back. Also, I appreciate how thorough you were in answering ALL of my puppy questions. Thank you again!

Love it here! Everyone is very caring and supportive. I feel that my Buster is safe there. He is usually terrified of most everyone, but not there.

The employees are very nice, and they provide a great service but be aware when they try to rush you out the door with a prescription or product that is double the price of chewy or anywhere else. they do not price match, discount to make it reasonable or return any medication once its out the door even if its 2 hours later and clearly unopened or tampered with. In my case the single medication was $43 more than available on chewy including shipping.

Took my new puppy in for her first visit, some vaccines and some advice. The vet and vet tech spent over an hour doing the exam, the vaccines and answering a lot of questions. Couldn't have been a nicer team and better experience. Fantastic!!!!

Love the staff always helpful. Things are expensive but worth saving/helping my animals. They made sure I understood everything I was paying for and needed for my pets. Also contacted me to make sure my pet was doing okay.

I have been to Lifetime Animal Care Center twice now. Once for a check up for my puppy. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Took their time to answer all my questions and provide information to help our pup. The second time was for my pup to be spayed. Again, the visit overall was great. At pick up it look a little longer than the morning and previous appointment, but it was later in the day rather than first thing in the morning. It was very nice to get a call from the doctor post surgery and also a call the next day to check up on how the pup was feeling. I would recommend them.

Very happy with this practice. Short waits. Friendly staff and doctors. Great care for our fur babies. We started here with a new dog after we were having issues with our current vet and plan to move all of our pets to this practice as a result of our experience. Highly recommend.

Our youngest dog has been uncomfortable with a skin issue. Lifetime and their staff were friendly, attentive and thorough in their exam and followup. Thank you!

My cats had to have their teeth cleaned. Curbside pickup and drop off was very good! They did an excellent job and my cats are happy again!!

Dr. Ozusa not professional. Dani the manager no skills for customer service at all. Instead of taking responsibility for their actions, Dani, Manager called me to discuss more details regarding my complain and all she did is to tell me that Lifetime Center was not going to be able to meet my expectations, and the wellness of Max (dog), meaning no compassion or understanding for my dog's behavior. Which these people are responsible for Max's reaction in my last visit on July 2,2021. Instead, an apology and try to fix the problem they ignored it and Manager cancelled my Essential plan that I recently bought for Max! After all these years, this is how Lifetime Center solve their problems with their loyal customers, and by not taking responsibility with their mistakes.
