Doctor five coat is so nice and caring! We are so happy with her! We feel really good having her taking care of our 14 years old baby.

Over the past few months I have called to make appointments for my 2 dogs and every time I have been told that the next available appointment is at least 2-3 weeks out. Which was quite frustrating when my dogs were having pain issues. There suggestion was to go to an emergency clinic. So the only care they have provided was their yearly exam and vaccinations.

Best veterinary experience ever! Dr. Jillian Fivecoat is really the most caring Dr (including human doctors) that I have encountered. She really took her time explaining everything to me, and was very helpful not only with my pet's healthcare but also with getting the right paperwork for taking my cat abroad for an international move.

We recently had to put our 12 year old lab down and as difficult as this experience was, Dr Fivecoat and 2 technicians, Tiffany and Michelle were wonderful to us. They were caring and did not rush the process at all. As there were several of us, they had set up in the garden area, so the whole family could attend, and our lab looked relaxed in her last moments and put us all at ease too. They explained each step and only proceeded when we were ready. We were able to take pictures and ask questions. I am sure you do so many of these everyday, but thank you so much VCA for making this experience unique and special for us.

I love how kind and caring these ladies are with my doggy. My dog has major anxiety and these ladies always go out of their way to accommodate and make my dog feel comfortable, even if my dog doesn't like vet visits. She always comes back with a smile and is full of playful energy.

This was my first time there. You have to call for an appointment due to Pandemic there is no walk in. The representative that answered the phone was courteous and helpful. Be prepared to have a carrier for your pet and be able to have a credit card for payment. When I arrive to the appointment, I called them to let them know I was there, a representative came out and took my kitty for his annual appointment and shots. After the visit the Vet talked to us and gave my kitty good health bill. The representative that took my kitty inside was very nice and you can tell she had a way with animals ???? and that she cared. Overall, it was a great experience despite the pandemic they followed protocol to make it easy on us and my kitty.????

Poppy Got me in on a Monday morning at 9 am for my cat being sick. So far have hit it right on the head with diagnosis and treatment. Explained at a high cost first and brought it down a few with some figures I could work with. So far so good.!.!.!

They care more about making money than helping owners and their pets. I requested a call back from a doctor ( just had our yearly appointment for our dog which was very expensive) to ask a few questions. My question for a call back was ignored and I had to ask numerous times for a doctor to call me back. Even asking all those times, I still don’t know if a doctor will be calling me. She just kept saying over and over to “book an appointment” (more $$) and then “our doctors are busy (surgery and with other patients), we will try our best.” It feels like they only prioritize you if you are going in and paying. We’ve been going there for years, but now we will be mostly likely switching vets.

Drs. Miyamoto and Ma are wonderful people who value not only your much loved fur baby, but realize the importance of their healthy existence in your life. Both have gone above and beyond in all instances in my over 16 year old dog and his sister who passed two and a half years ago. They are truly my Comfort Team!

I’ve been taking my pets to VCA Almaden for nearly 20 years. Dogs, cats, bunnies, turtles, and more. They have consistently and compassionately given the best care imaginable to my animals, and the best professional advice to myself. I can not recommend them highly enough!!

This is the top south bay VCA to goto if you can. Dr Stiehl and Dr Miyamoto are fantastic doctors and even better people. This place has earned my trust and my business based on their ethical approach to treatment and do what's right mentality.

I only board my dog here so my review only covers that. My dog doesn't take well to boarding but they really took care oh him here and do the extra to make sure he's comfortable. It's on the expensive side but you also have the comfort of knowing there is a vet on hand in case your furry baby needs care while you are gone.

I don't know how much I really like this place. Most of the nurses there are super pushy to sell you something for your pet. I can't really tell if they care or if they are just trying to sell me another $50 shot. Last time I was there when i refused to get my dog a flu shot the nurse told me I'm not allowed to go to dog parks or outside or have my dog get into contact with any other dogs under any circumstances. I understand the seriousness of the flu, but she basically commanded that I understand that I cannot do anything with my dog except keep him at home. I didn't like that approach.
