I took my two German Shepards Zen and Zoe here and we were treated with quick, kind, and efficient service. The Vet was very knowledgeable and helpful! The hours could not be more convenient and the prices are very reasonable!
I like the small family feel to the practice and it is close to other places I shop on Mission Street. I have owned multiple cats in the years I have gone to Dr. Horne. He always takes a genuine interest and does thorough and careful exams. I never feel rushed along like I have at other vets. I am very happy with companion animal hospital, with Dr. Horne and all the nice staff up front.
Took my 2nd dog for tooth extraction and my cat for vaccine updates. Everything went wonderful, after the surgery, they even took my dog for a short walk! They all liked my pets and how calm and friends they were, and my pets liked how nice they were! Again very reasonable, I think I am done with Vet searching.
this hospital is under new ownership with a great new crew! they also have a new number (650)591-VETS(8387) First exam is free stop in today with your furry friends or call for an appointmet! they have great prices and a loving staff!! they hope to see you and your furry friend soon! ask about special offers they got some great ones
I recommend this place – my dog was having non-stop bloody diarrhea and my original vet was closed that day, so while i was looking for some vet, i found this one and they had first initial free visit. So, i decided to go, girls up front were very nice and friendly. After waiting for like 20 mins which i understand since i called like 10 mins before and very late at night, a tech came and asked qs. Then finally i met the Dr. I was amazed by the Dr. he went through everything so thoroughly and took his time and gave me options. Before doing any treatments, he brought me an estimate so i know how much it'll cost. So, i needed to get my dog treated, so we did some tests and Dr. gave me some meds to go home. Cost came around $100 bucks, including free exam, two lab tests, plus meds which was pretty reasonable. Then, Dr himself came outside and went over the meds with me thoroughly and i was very happy with the service that i received from the Dr. I was called the next day with test results and they asked me how my dog was doing. My dog was back to normal and jumping around in 2 days. I will definetely go back and i would suggest others to go and try this place.
I love Companion Animal Hospital – I have two dogs. Ruca and Penny. Ruca has been seen here for her knee. Which she must have twisted. The treatment plan was to give her the anti- inflammation medicine and keep her off it so it could heal. If that did not work then we would go for the x-rays to see how bad it was. And possible surgery. My point is tho that the vet could have swindled me and fed me a bunch of crap but she did not. She is an honest vet and gives you options on the treatment your animal may need. Same with my Penny. When she was seen and diagnosed. The vet explained in detail what it could be and gave me options. I am very pleased with this place. I feel its a great animal hospital. All the staff are very nice too. From the front desk staff, to the vets assistant to the vet, etc. They r all very kind and calming to you and your pet. In fact Ruca has a check up tomorrow. I love that I found Companion Animal Hospital and now that I have this is my vet for life.
I have to completely disagree with the negative review on this site. First, a disclaimer -- I am an internist (for humans), so perhaps the treatment my dog received was unusually good because I knew the right questions to ask. I have an old basset hound who has a lot of medical problems. Dr. Bower was extremely thorough and gentle in his exam. He addressed all of her issues, gave recommendations about treatments and offered appropriate referrals. He also took my opinions into consideration. I have had another vet for my two dogs, and Dr. Bower is much more knowledgeable and comprehensive. Overall, I was very pleased with my dogs' care there.
Long time client – I have to TOTALLY disagree with Lichi and Chris. I have been bringing my cats there for just about 5 years. When no other vet could figure out what was wrong with my cats, or telling me they are dying, Dr. Bower saved their lives. I completely trust Dr. Bower. He explains everything in detail and answers all questions and never rushes to get you out of the office. As far as I am concerned, Dr. Bower has performed miracles on a couple of my cats, that otherwise would no longer be here with me. They survived and are healthier then ever. If I listened to the other vets, well, they would be in pine boxes on my mantle right now. As far as the staff is concerned, they are very friendly and professional.Perhaps it was your attitudes, Lichi and Chris, when you went in there that caused them to be unfriendly and defensive. Remember, you have to treat people the way YOU want to be treated.
We're in very good hands with Companion – I'm a new dog owner and visited Companion based on a friend's referral. My puppy and I had a very good visit. The office area was very clean and organized, and the office staff was friendly. Additionally, I found Dr. Bower to be very knowledgeable, consultative and patient. He allowed me to ask several questions, volunteered some solid recommendations (with rationale) and provided a new puppy informational packet. We were in and out of the office within 45 minutes without any barking, yelping or tears! I think we're in very good hands.
I happened upon these reviews in an attempt to google Companion's phone number. Dr. Bower and his associates took care of our very sick dog for almost three years- until she died several years ago. Dr. Bower is our hero. What was supposed to be six weeks became 3 years due to his extraordinary skills. Our dog's dire health made us search out a scientist vs a warm and fuzzy. This guy is an extraordinary clinician. Simultaneously I was personally undergoing treatment at UCSF and Stanford hospitals. I often said that I wished my doctors were as thorough, comprehensive and communicative as Dr. Bower. You tend to get detailed explanation filled with medical terms. He'll take the time to explain it all- you need to ask questions and indicate if it's going over your head. Our dog was so sick with an esoteric disease that there was no way to avoid a fairly dense explanation. If you need cutting edge veterinary care then Dr. Bower is your man. Yes, he's not a TV vet in terms of his personality, but he is an amazing doctor. A good friend back east is a vet and "consulted" with me through my dog's illness and commented several times that we were lucky in that Dr. Bower was obviously a master clinician. BTW, he IS a very nice guy. I now live over 100 miles away and our other dog is having a serious medical issue, which makes it time for a master clinician, i.e. a long drive to the best, Dr. Bower.
