I grew up taking my pets here and was excited to bring my puppy here as they had provided great service before. While I am sure my experience is also a result of the pandemic, personnel shortages, and an increase in pet ownership I'm sad to say the treatment my puppy and I received was sub-par and we have decided to work with another clinic. My puppy broke his leg at 6 mo old. I called Arguello only to be told that they could not see me at all after I had taken him to the ER over the weekend. Not only was the front desk woman rude she also offered literally no help in referring me to any specialist and essentially told me I was on my own to find care for my dog despite the fact that my dog was an established patient. Thankfully the ER doctor was able to contact a specialist she knew and get me set up and taken care of. Arguello should have assisted in this process rather than simply telling me to figure it out on my own. I also contacted them a number of times when my puppy had recurring vomiting and diarrhea as I was concerned. They were only able to see me once and kept telling me to go to the ER. They also would not prescribe medication to help in the event of another episode which meant I had to keep going to the ER whenever this came up because he could never get in to be seen. Finally, one episode was so bad that after taking him to the ER (because they couldn't see me) I was able to get in days later and I requested an ultrasound and a GI blood panel. I was told that I could try giving him vitamin supplements or try him on a prescription diet but was not given a clear diagnosis nor path for treatment. Additionally, my puppy was seen by another vet, and my vet Dr. Ina never touched base to discuss the labs, etc. 3 days later I took him to another vet who immediately diagnosed him with IBD (based on the exact same ultrasound and blood panel) and got him on a regimen to manage his disease. This vet also kindly sent me home with prescriptions in case he did vomit or have diarrhea so I would not have to pay to go to the ER only to be handed these medications. I am not sure what has happened over the years but the level of care and kindness towards pet parents has decreased. I would only consider coming here for annual checkups/vaccinations as they are no assistance with more serious/pressing needs and it is virtually impossible to get seen.

We love this place - but it's hard to book something that can be urgent. But great staff. Also tough to find parking

Took my dog in, she had multiple issues. The shot for allergies worked. Was going to have them remove a fatty deposit from the side of her neck . They wanted 1100, I'll take my old lady some place else. She is 84 so maybe not.

She always knows the corner she's on when we get there and tries to run away despite the amazing care she has gotten throughout the years from Arguello pet hospital. Thank you so much for a healthy lil girl.

Can't say enough great things about Arguello Pet Hospital. We had the privilege of having Dr. Jamie Ina be our dog Maggie's primary vet her whole life (almost 12 years) and during that time we consistently had amazing, professional & compassionate care. Sadly, we lost our old pup a couple of weeks ago, but we will definitely be coming back to Arguello Pet Hospital & Dr. Jamie Ina for our future pup's veterinarian care.

Incredible experience. Everyone who works here is incredibly thoughtful and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Karissa Nishimura... she has taken care of my Pippin twice now & both times I have felt confident that his well being, comfort and healthy were the first priority. Thank you everyone @ Arguello Pet Hospital!

I tried to ask what core vaccines do they use for kittens. They REFUSED to tell me and said that when our kitten came in the doctor would discuss this with me. I explained that I needed to know before I arrived. She told me that I did not have to come there but she would NOT tell me what FVRCP vaccines they use.

I've had such a wonderful experience with this vet. They're responsive, compassionate, clear, and have always been able to see my cat on short notice if necessary. I wish I could get healthcare like this for myself!

Polite and very professional, small waiting room, no customer restroom, have to use restroom at gas station nextdoor. Parking is a nightmare.

I’ve brought my dog to around 10 different veterinarians over the years (we’ve moved around a lot) and Arguello Pet Hospital by far is my favorite. Dr. Vanessa Reeves is Wolfe’s current vet - she is direct, informative, and friendly. She’s basically that coworker want on your project because she tells you what your options are, what the risks are, and what her opinion is without feeling like she’s pushing you towards a decision. My dog is also a leaner and gives her heavy leans and sappy eyes - he definitely vibes with her better than some other vets we’ve had over the years! We moved to the peninsula a couple of years ago and I’ve tried 3 different vets down here, none of which I connected with. After a few frustrating visits we’ve decided it’s worth the trek up a couple of times a year to have our dog treated at Arguello Pet Hospital.

I’ve been bringing my almost 6 year old pup here since she was a little baby fluff. She was spayed here and the vet (Dr. Hathaidharm) did a perfect job - very clean, barely a scar was left behind. The vets here are very knowledgeable and thorough, the front desk staff have always been friendly and helpful, and the techs are kind and seem experienced enough to me. I used to drive over here when I lived in Bayview, now I’m in the same neighborhood as them. They’re great.

My partner has been taking his cats here for years, and when I got my cat I didn't hesitate to get his care here. They're incredibly thorough, thoughtful, and you can tell that all of the staff genuinely love their fuzzy patients. I can't recommend them highly enough!
