“Love this vet! Had my cat’s teeth cleaned and they did an excellent job. There was no last minute charges or surprises. The price was the price and it was fair!” -Shawna L.

“I decided to give Dr. Eckstein a try after reading all of the positive reviews here. My previous vet left me feeling a little shamed for not agreeing to every test and shot possible. My dog is on 3 different medications for a chronic condition so it’s expensive enough. I was so happy I switched! Dr. E actually examined my dog with me present and spent quite a bit of time discussing all aspects of my dog’s care. All of the staff were terrific. She’s not the closest vet but I loved her! She was very informative and respectful.” -Cindy A.

“Rancho Viejo Animal Hospital is the best vet clinic.  Since moving to Southern California,  I’ve been to four vets, including emergency,  and we have found a home here.  The prices are very reasonable, the staff is kind and knowledgeable,  the facility is calm and quiet by design.  They worked with me, not talking down to me or isolating me from my pet.  The doctor called me at home the same day with the test results as well as a second opinion from a radiologist.  They also emailed me the results so I could read the radiologist’s report myself.  They offered me many options for diagnosis and treatment.  They made sure I knew what everything cost so I could make informed decisions.

I cannot stress how happy I am with them.  Take your dog here, or, like me, your cat.  You won’t regret it.” -Campbell F.

“We’ve been taking both of our dogs, a chihuahua and westie, for the past couple of years.  We’ve had nothing short of a wonderful experience the entire time.  The staff is always friendly and patient.  Dr. Eckstein always takes a lot of time to explain everything that’s going on and why it’s happening.  From the get go we’ve always FELT how much she and her team cares about our furry fam members. 

We’ve had dental work, blood work, basic check ups – we always come away knowing they’re both getting exceptional care.  While any vet visits for major items and sticker shock go hand in hand – at least we know the care received is well worth the expense.  There is always a follow up call the next day to check in and see how the pups are doing… we can call with random questions or concerns after anything’s been done and they put us at ease with respect to our concerns. 

Bottom line:  do we recommend Rancho Viejo Animal Hospital?  Absolutely without a doubt… GREAT PLACE – GREAT TEAM!” -Matthew S.

“Dr. Eckstein and her staff are wonderful! My Sophie is deathly afraid of the car and the vet…she pants and drools she gets so nervous. Dr. Eckstein and the staff, all get on the floor with her so that she does not need to be lifted up on the examining table. I feel so confident when Sophie is in their care. I have tried other vest and always felt as if we were just a number, we love our new vet!” -Susan B.
