Yes, that is where I usually take all of my dogs. I got lucky and got a $30 off coupon, and another $10 off couponn in the mail.

Mee, VCA Animal Hospital is the name of major vet hospitals around CA, maybe in other states. They are like franchises, chains, or commercial vet hospitals...kind of like Carls Jr. or Burger King burger franchises .. I have been to four all together, and find them a bit impersonal. BUT, I had an emergency one time with another dog a couple of years ago, and fortunately they were a 24 hour vet hospital, so I was able to go way after hours. Plus, I have never gone to a privately owned vet, so I really can't compare.

I like them because they have a variety of doctors to chose from, but they always seem VERY busy, rushed, and in a hurry.

Why do you ask?

I'm in NJ, and we have one that I know of here. I took my cat there, before they became affiliated with VCA. I think their level of care went way down, and a number of the vets we really liked in the original practice, left. We now use another vet hospital. We are very fortunate to have several really good 24hr. emergency care facilities near by.

right now in vet school we are now having to decide where to do our externships (which is working under a vet for a month) i know i want to work in a place that has all the new high tech equipment with more than one vet, and possible some specialist present at the hospital. i know that some VCAs are like this. VCAs are all over the country. i was a little concerned how the average client thought of the practice and that is why i asked. i have never been in one. if anyone wants to tell me about their vet, it might halp me out. the areas im interested in right now are florida, nevada, and texas.
