I highly recommend Animal Specialty Group. Their staff is very efficient and knowledgable. I was able to get an appointment quickly. There is very good communication between doctors and families.

The initial appointment was very informative and covered all questions I had and more. The doctor and assistant spent time with you going over all options and really breaking down the entire process. The cost was scary, but once again they gave you the entire picture. They gave us a low cost and a high cost and compared them right next to each other. Even after the cost scare we decided this was our best option for our dog. We admitted him that same day.

The next day was his CAT Scan and if all was clear they were going straight into surgery. Unfortunately there was an emergency with another dog and when he came out of his CAT scan the surgery room booked was occupied. The doctor contacted us immediately and told us we would not be charged for any added costs due to the emergency that took his room. They made sure to call us 2-3 times daily to update us on our dogs health and the next steps. The next day he had his surgery and all went well. Again they stood in constant communication with us and made us feel comfortable. We were able to pick our dog up on Friday and bring him home. They went over all of the medication and follow up requirements before they brought him out. They also went over all the costs and we were excited to see that we were on the low end of the costs!!! That was a huge plus. Our dog still has staples and will need a few more follow up appointments, but overall we have not seen his back look so good in so long. He has not had any pain attacks and appears to be healing just fine.

I have never had a better experience in the 12 years that I've owned animals. The staff was knowledgeable, courteous and very detail oriented. They saved my dog Dutch's life. I will be forever grateful. THANK YOU!

My initial consultation with Dr. Huber about TPLO surgery on my 12 month old puppy was very informative and he took the time to explain in detail what he was going to do and what to expect. Surgery was scheduled the following week. Then the unthinkable happened and the day before the scheduled surgery he tore the other leg. I rushed my puppy to emergency and they took him straight in on a gurney. That surgery would have to wait until the original leg was healed, about a month.

From the first moment I walked into ASG and checked in to the day I picked up my puppy the whole staff was extremely polite, professional and sympathetic. Yes the cost is high, but the old saying is true. You get what you pay for. When I picked up my puppy and looked at the leg, I could barely see the staples, the incision line was clean with no puckering or signs of irritation. Peggy, the Office coordinator spent so much time with me explaining every aspect of what I was to expect, what to do, how to give the shots, to where to put the water bowl, potty breaks; everything. She assured my that I would be fine and that if I needed anything at all and they were there 24 hours for me.

Dr. Gonzalez called me twice a day to update and re-assure me that everything was fine.

I couldn't be happier with the service. From the Front desk to Peggy, Dr. Gonzalez to Dr. Huber, I wouldn't go anywhere else for the care of my animals. I trust them with their lives.

Great place! We have had 2 surgeries on our cat and the service and care shown to him were above and beyond.

We love Animal Specialty Group. They were very clear about what to expect, what the procedure would be, and options for payment. So thankful for ASG in our dog's time of need!

We were referred to ASG for an ultrasound after our sweet little Boston Terrier, Leroy Brown had spent the previous 24 hours vomiting and yelping in pain. We had taken him to the ER in Eagle Rock for x-rays the night before, then back to our regular vet (Village Vet) earlier that morning for more x-rays, to no avail. He appeared to be getting more and more lethargic and distant as the hours went on, which we knew was not a good sign. We head over to ASG, and were quickly escorted into a waiting room where Dr. Coddon arrived shortly thereafter. She took one look at him and immediately sensed that an ultrasound was not going to cut it and that he very likely would need to be admitted into emergency surgery to remove whatever it was that he had eaten. We were given the financial details in advance (a printout of the low and high end of what the services would amount to), and made the decision then and there to get Leroy into the operating room.

We left ASG that afternoon feeling emotionally depleted, but comforted in knowing that Leroy was in the best hands possible. Not long afterwards, we received a call from the doctor letting us know that everything had gone extremely well and that they had found a "foreign object" (a combination of some sort of fabric and chunks of Nylabone) lodged somewhere between his tummy and intestines. Had we waited any longer, his complications would have been much more severe.

Leroy stayed at ASG the next 3 nights and we made sure to stop by and visit him each afternoon. 18 staples, one cone and multi pain meds later, our little guy is back home and back to his needy little self (success!). He is staple-free and can brag to his step brother (our other Boston, Geronimo) all about his battle scar. For this, I have to thank Doctors Huber, Coddon, Nelson, Steve Katz and the entire ASG staff for their diligence, expertise, patience and compassion in caring for my baby.

Ths is the second time I have been "lucky' enough to get a referral to ASG. The first time was with my little terrier "Gimlet" she had Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome and received excellent treatment from Dr. Schulman and is now leading a healthy happy life.

This past Friday her BFF "Furla" was operated on, for luxating patellas. Dr. Strom did the surgery and she is home recovering.

In both instances I have been very impressed with the whole staff at ASG
