I have been taking my dogs past and present to Dr Bailey and staff Thalia and Margo since moving here in 1990. The care I have received has always been excellent including many teary goodbyes that were met in turn with compassion and empathy. But our most recent situation, dr Bailey saved my little Boston Terriers age 4 life. We brought him in without an appointment in severe pain and found out his stomach had twisted which is a deadly situation. Surgery would have to be done in Sacramento. The Dr called for us to find out the cost, which was $4,000-$7000. This was not an option for us which faced us with a difficult decision. She saw our pain and said she was willing to try and do the surgery, but no promises. We agreed. She then talked to Dr. Eaton who also works there on different days. They decided to try to turn the dog and try to manipulate the stomach back into place. So about an hour of turning and stomach massage she got in back in position. Luckily no other organs suffered any damage. Our little dog is doing great now thanks to a vet and staff that go the extra mile.

This is a bit hard to find, but I was really really pleased with the exam, explanations, time spent with my new cats and with me. The vet even gave the kittens two of their meds I didn't feel comfortable giving. I didn't even tell her. She read me as well as my new kittens. The kittens were gotten from a reputable pound. They had FLEAS, and upper respiratory infections with one kitten having oozing eyes. ? Worms ( I insisted on a dewormer), no extra tests pushed, and the price was quite reasonable. No bad words from them about the place I got them.
Everybody helped and were so nice and calm. I love this place!!! And I have been to 5 desperate vets since coming to CA. Best hands down!!

I just want to say how wonderful they were with my dotty (chihuahua rescue) not only did they make me feel comfortable with leavIng her to get fixed. But over the weekend Dottie tore her spot open, when i walked in Monday morning they said we will take care of it, they kept her all day to watch her free of charge. And when we picked miss Dottie up that night she was all better! Great customer service and they took all my phone calls and questions with a friendly tone!! And Thelya (might have mispelled) was the sweetest lady ever! Her persona and all around way with me and dotty was great!!

Customer Testimonials

I came here after moving to Galt a few years ago. Staff is very nice and knowledgeable. Anytime there has been something with my cats I didn't understand the doctors/vets and tech explain it very well. I took both my adult cats here through the end of the lives. Now that I have two new kittens they will be coming here as well.


I've been taking many pets, from those leaving this world, to those just entering it, and my fur babies could not recieve better care. The women that work there don't just provide care, they truly do care about their patients and their patients' owners. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for being there for our family!


This place is amazing! I am so thankful that I found this place! They are genuinely concerned for your pets.
