  • I would not recommend this business
  • Great staff except for the vet.
  • too many to list

The staff were fabulous and caring. I would pay for a stranger NOT to see this cold money grubbing woman. My 17 yr old ill dog was in the process of death. Barely breathing, the last 4 hours of his life all 4 legs stiff and would not bend, he could not walk, and the dog was screaming, not crying...screaming. He had numerous growths, vomiting, peeing himself and now screaming and can not move. I called the Linwood Hospital for details of putting him down. My 19 and 18 yr old needed reassurance, without a doubt the dog would be dead in hours but a painful death.

Dr Montealegre told my kids the paralysis could be a herniated disc and maybe testing is in order. NO! The dog is dying, I want him out of pain. The vet said for $142 and testing she could determine if it is a herniated disc and fixable. Both kids in tears, I said we will take him home, he would be dead in a few hours no doubt and her unkindness and bizarre diagnosis made my kids feel like they were doing something wrong. End of story?? She injected LESS than a cc of sedation to relax him and he died, why she injected him with 2 other syringes or finished the sedation on a dead dog is beyond me. A staff member comforted my children after saying he was in pain and it was the best thing to do. The rest of the staff compassionate. Montealegre has no feeling and I will NEVER allow anyone I know to take their pet to this UN-VET.

Value for moneyWrong diagnosis? NO value for $$
