The vet was never condescending, or harsh. She tried her best to meet our needs. My cat is still taking a while to improve, but he has actually be improving with this clinic. My old vet before recommended this place since it is a specialty clinic, but said in the end they would charge me a hundred dollars and say my cat was a lost cause. They were wrong, and my cat is now walking around living a little life. I'm very grateful for this clinic.

I was referred to the Clackamas branch of VCA animal hospitals after bringing my dog to their emergency Southeast location with GI issues and inappetence.) Over the course of the next few days, I interacted with a number of staff members, ranging from Reception, vet techs and two doctors. Each interaction made me feel confident that my dog was in good hands and that they cared about his well-being. My dog’s diagnosis wasn’t easy to pin down, and a number of tests were run over the course of two days. Dr. Billings was the primary vet and was outstanding. She called me every step of the way, kept me informed on what every procedure or test would entail, and then called me the next day to follow up on my dog’s blood work. A few days later, new symptoms arose and I called the hospital on a Sunday morning (my regular vet has been impossible to get an appointment with since the pandemic started.) They were short-staffed, but a second doctor took my phone call and talked me through my options, really helping to relieve some of my anxiety. I can’t express how grateful I am for her making herself available for a phone consultation. I highly recommend this location for Veterinary services.

Called urgently at 5 pm for a cat that was old and suffering. They treated us compassionately. Highly recommend Dr. Ellie Bohrer who was kind and caring and gentle.

The most horrible Veterinarian experience of my life. My cat has a lump that had developed an abscess. She immediately started talking about "basil cells" and cancer treatment without discussing the age of the cat (13), my wishes or my financial situation. I was presented with a $3000 estimate by a technician. I said I could not afford it and they simply cleaned the wound, sold me a dog "cone" for $8 and sent me on my way $260 poorer. The collar on my cat made it impossible for her to eat or drink. The wound did not get stitched and now she will have a nasty scar covered lump poking out of her skin. I've never been to a vet who cared so little for the animal.
