"My yr-old female standard poodle, Bella, was unable to walk. I called VCA ASEC at 2: AM to ask about wait times and was told that there were several critical animals being attended--I should go elsewhere (they provided options) or wait. At 7: AM, I took her without calling. I was unable to get Bella out of the car, so ASEC had 2 technicians with a gurney bring her in. She was immediately seen by Dr. Kim. I waited < minutes before Dr. Kim met with me. She explained the findings from her physical exam, which was that my dog had sustained a probable acute on chronic thoracic spine injury and had lost proprioception (ability to sense one's location/movement). We discussed treatment options, which are few with a -yr old animal. Dr. Kim was fully attentive, gracious, and pragmatic. She kept Bella for an additional 2 hours to observe, treat for pain, and obtain lab work. When I returned to pick Bella up, she met with me again to ask about additional concerns and to review her treatment plan. I am hugely grateful to this veterinarian and to the ASEC staff for their management of my pet. This has been my experience of ASEC for the > 3 times I have been to them under emergent circumstances. I will always return to ASEC for my emergent animal needs. Always."

"I was very impressed with the speedy attention I received when I called about my cat, and upon arrival was immediately taken care of. Dr Vu called me right after the exam, was very kind, patient with my questions, thorough and informative. The staff was incredibly nice, very polite and professional. I would highly recommend this center, they really care about your pet and you! Thank you for the excellent care both my cat and I received! 5 stars! Thank you EVERYONE!!"

"We took our 7 year old dog (Lily) to ASEC after she was diagnosed with small cell lymphoma (b cell). The diagnosis came as a shock to us, and was made during Thanksgiving , during peak COVID-. After scrambling and begging for appointments at various cancer facilities, we luckily got to start chemo treatments right away with Dr. Downing. Unfortunately, our precious girl died 3 weeks after starting treatment, I think we just caught it too late. This review is less about the treatments (although, I was very impressed by the responsiveness and level of detail we were provided before and after our appointments) and more about the compassion Dr. Downing and her entire team gave us when Lily died on Christmas Eve. Dr. Zhang was the on-site vet that night. We were permitted to come see Lily afterwards and spend time with her. I had requested Dr. Zhang call me to give me details on her passing and she called me and spent quite a bit of time with me explaining her last moments although it was well past midnight. The staff helped me find crematory services and mailed me the sweater Lily was wearing when we brought her in. The next day, Dr. Downing called me to express her sympathies. Despite the awful outcome, I will never forget the kindness that ASEC showed to me."

"This is a late review but on April our pup had TPLO surgery with Dr. Chow at ASEC and he did an excellent job on Chappie. Chappie is a big dog who's not easy to handle and with the COVID restrictions of not allowing the pet's humans into the facility it made it all the more challenging. The techs who picked up Chappie from the parking lot and returned him to us were patient and kind. Dr. Chow was accommodating when Chappie refused to get out of the car for his follow up visit and he came into the parking lot to observe Chappie in the back seat of the car. The costs are expensive although we don't really know if another place would have charged less or more. We did not have many choices as to where we could take him at that time due to COVID making vet services harder to access and, of course, due to the nature of his injury which required specialized surgery. We financed the surgery with Care Credit and our pet insurance reimbursed us to % of the cost. One reviewer mentioned that they were charged for something that they didn't do/receive and at one point I believe we had a question about a charge on our bill. However, we did call them, they were responsive and they did a correction on the bill without any fuss or bother. The estimated charges were explained to us before the surgery and for anything that wasn't set in stone, a reason was given regarding the ambiguity. In our case, we did not pay more than the estimate and might have paid a bit less - at this point I do not remember. I highly recommend Dr. Chow based on this experience. This review was written with the approval of Chappie as well, although he hopes to never need to see Dr. Chow again. Below you can see Chappie hiking at Mt. Pinos in August, /2 months post surgery."

"We brought in a stray we found that was almost on death's door. The staff here were so kind and helpful to us, especially Dr. Zabalaga. She gave us treatment options and spent the time to give us clear explanations of everything so we knew what we were dealing with. They saved our new friend Pancake who is now feeling much better and we're so grateful!"
