What Our Clients Are Saying about Vista Animal Hospital
Dr. Abbott took excellent care of our dog who is anxiety aggressive and can be a challenge especially with these Covid times.
Friendly staff! Always willing to help. I followed Dr. Herndon from her other hospital I just can’t imagine my cats health under anyone else’s hands. I always leave with a smile knowing they take care of my kitty as if she were theirs!
We went to Vista today for the first time, and simply put, the experience was amazing! All of the staff couldn’t have been nicer and more caring to our pup!We worked with Dr. Abbott and she couldn’t have been a better fit for our puppy and us! She clearly explained every thing she looked at and was doing with our little pup as she was doing it. There was clear conversation about the options we had for shots, and a health plan. She also shared with us more information about our mixed breed puppy than we had heard from prior vets. This helped us make informed decisions on what we needed to expect from a growing puppy. At the end of the appointment, which was quick and efficient, she shared multiple options for insurance that would apply to us, and gave candid answers when we asked about the differences between service providers. Overall, we left proud of our pup, informed on ANY topic new puppy parents would need AND excited for our follow up appointment in 3 weeks!!
VERY friendly, helpful and accommodating!! My dog Lola and I are going back home to Hawaii and she needs a health certificate and flea/tick treatment before I can take her back in through the DAR (direct airport release) program. Dr. Abbott, Heidi and Caitlyn are all extremely helpful and thorough, helping to hopefully make my time through Quarantine a quick one and were very quite knowledgeable about the requirements and making sure I was following them all. I am very appreciative of their time.
I don’t typically write posts like this, but this vet went and beyond for me last week. They are also a small business so I think it’s important to spread the word. Dr. Abbott at Vista Animal Hospital, just off of highway 7 is amazing! I have been searching for a good vet for 4 years and have tried numerous ones, and this place was by far the best. It is also all ran by women which I think is pretty great. I was a new client last week, and I am also a bit of a crazy dog mom. My dog started showing some neurological issues. Vista was able to get me in right away within the hour. They did a full exam - Dr. Abbott spent a ton of time going through her chart and checking everything out, blood work etc. She consulted two different neurologists and we went home with meds. Throughout the week my sweet girl got worse. Dr. Abbott gave me her cell and said to text her or call her with anything. I got more meds and more fluids, but in the end I had to make a really difficult decision. Dr. Abbott was honest with me about her prognosis (most likely brain tumor)- I say this because I feel like most vets out here want you to push and push and spend more money when it is not the humane thing to do. When it came time to make that decision Dr. Abbott came out to my house, after business hours, to help send her over the rainbow bridge. This was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. Dr. Abbott was so unbelievably compassionate, and caring, and just made this whole process just a bit easier. I honestly can’t say enough about how great she was. If you need a great vet, I highly highly recommend this place. They are also so much more reasonable than any other vet I’ve been to.
This was our first visit here and we are so impressed! Our dog is a little nervous and very scared of new places/people. Dr Bonnie and her staff were amazing with our girl Daisy. They were calm and patient with her. They never tried to force her to cooperate and really just took their time making sure she was comfortable. I just can’t say enough good things about our experience!!
Vista Animal Clinic is a fear free certified clinic., this makes a big difference in my dogs. In Vista Animal Hospital are very caring and helpful every time I take my dogs there. I highly recommend it.
I’ve never been to such an amazing animal hospital! From the front desk staff to the techs to Dr. Abbot - they were all kind, caring and made me and my 8 week old puppy feel comfortable and welcomed while taking the time to answer any and all questions. Dr. Abbot took the extra step and offered a puppy paw print for a keepsake as well as showing us a bunch of different exercises to put our puppy through so that he is more successful as an adult with groomings etc. I cannot recommend this place enough!!!
I love Dr. Abbot!! She saved our dogs life and went above and beyond. She stayed late and missed her sons birthday to make sure our dog is OK. She is kind and caring and compassionate and she is very good At what she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I had an amazing experience at Vista Animal Hospital. They got my cat in the day after I called. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was no waiting around, Dr Abbott saw us right away. The environment is very welcoming and warm. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this animal hospital!
I’m completely in love with Vista Animal Hospital and their staff!!!! I can’t express enough how different and incredible this place and all the people who work there are!!!! <— I’m not using the !’s lightly, they are intended. As anyone with a rescue dog, or a pet in general, can attest, the vet can be a very stressful place/time/situation. And finding one that deeply loves and openly embraces every creature who walks through their door, is extremely rare to find. I have two rescue dogs, Leo, a 9 month old Shiba-Inu mix and Koda, a 1 yr and a half old boxer, pitty, mutt mix. Today was Koda’s booster shot day and check-up. He’s never had a positive experience at the vets office and while he’s a big ol’ sweet Lumix, he’s emotionally very sensitive and he’s hyper aware of how people feel about him. Since I’ve promised to be his guardian, furever, finding a vet with whom he’s comfortable with is extremely important to me, and today, we found that it Dr. Carisa Rindal!!! She is AMAZING!!! The whole staff, from Jennifer, Kaitlyn, and Cait to Dr. Rindal, the four ladies we had the utmost pleasure in interacting with today, all welcomed both my boys, and myself with open arms and hearts, and made us all feel loved, welcomed and comfortable. From the exam tables being dog beds, the ability and use of half doors in the rooms so the dogs can still experience and feel connected to what’s going on around them, to the staff getting on the floor and genuinely enjoying snuggling with my boys and taking time to truly see each soul as their own unique being, I’m beyond impressed and grateful!! Never have any of us experienced such an enjoyable visit to the vets office. So while I could go on about all the little things they did that truly impressed me, this post would be much, much longer. Instead, I will say:I HIGHLY recommend this place and it’s warm, incredibly special staff!!!! Thank you all!!!
I've never had a good experience at the vet until we came to Vista Animal Hospital. We have a 13 year old, small breed dog who is terrified of going to the vet. The entire staff was so welcoming, gentle and patient with him. Dr. Rindal was incredibly thorough with us and our dog even licked her on her cheek (this is a HUGE deal as he is usually bolting for the door!!!). It is so nice to know we have a vet that we can take him to who we feel truly cares for him like her own. I would HIGHLY recommend this place!
I would love to give Dr Abbott and her staff more than 5 stars but it doesn't go any higher! This office is so warm and welcoming and you can feel how much they care about your pet. The entire staff is amazing and we feel very fortunate to know that they are our vet.
If I could give Vista Animal Hospital and Dr Bonnie Abbott 10 stars I would! I have never had a more caring and compassionate vet in all my years, dogs, and three states. She and her staff are absolutely wonderful. She is so personable, friendly, and knowledgeable, and from the minute you walk into her inviting clinic, you know you are in the right place with your precious furry friend. ❤️
