What Our San Diego Clients Say

I couldn't be happier. They were very communicative up to arriving, and they were awesome to my cat. Such a better alternative than traumatizing her with a trip to the vet!

Dr Klaus and Meagan were so patient and gentle with Sparky. They answered any questions we had. They were very thorough. They didn’t rush through the appointment. They were referred to us and we highly recommend them to others.

I’ve used BetterVet twice now and have had very good luck with them. Professional and knowledgeable - they’ve worked well with my large retriever who has anxiety and doesn’t do well in a clinic. Would recommend them!
