I brought my dog here to be neutered & to have a few baby teeth extracted. Dr sexton was very nice & seemed to care about my dog. It had a very family feel to it, which I appreciated because I really don't want my dog to feel unnecessarily stressed. It's bad enough going to the vet!

Everybody who worked there was friendly & seemed to be ready and waiting for my dog to arrive.

The pricing wasn't cheap, but it wasn't the MOST expensive. I was very happy with how my little guy seemed to feel after, and he has snapped back quickly. He didn't even have to wear a cone.

A couple of things they can work on are pretty minor. They do need better signage. It doesn't say Sexton Clinic on the sign, I think it just says Veterinary Clinic. Also, I asked them to email vaccination and neutering records so I could upload to get my dog licensed, and they said they didn't have that capability. That's a little strange, but the #1 most important thing is, and will always be, how they make your pet feel and the quality of medical care, and I was very happy with that!!

Found our forever vet. Dr. Sexton and Loraine are wonderful. They're solutions oriented but are always cost conscious. They run a clean, friendly shop and they provide really excellent care. We're so happy and thankful they're in Alamo. If they ever relocate, we will follow

I worked with Dr. Sexton many years ago when I was a vet tech. I've since changed professions and relocated back to the East Bay Area. I needed a vet and it was natural for me to choose Jim Sexton and his team. He's knowledgeable, compassionate, genuine, gentle and kind. He has your fur child's best interests at heart always. He's in Alamo so a bit more pricey, however you won't get better care and he won't gouge you for unnecessary tests, procedures etc.

I fully and completely recommend you check out his practice.

Dr. Sexton is a terrific diagnostician; thorough in his exams, ethical in terms of telling you the truth about your dog and what he or she needs. From something sort of small like "my dog wore his foot pads down in a too-long run" to something big, like supporting you if you have to make the decision to end your best friend's suffering, even when no one wants to. He's kind and helpful. Most recently checked out my new miniature rat terrier and gave him a clean bill of health.

Was taking our Labrador to another vet and was told our dog possibly had Addison Disease. Having heard the news, I was shocked and started to research it. I wanted a second opinion and brought our dog to the Sexton Clinic. Turned out to be the best decision ever. Ended up not being Addison and Dr. Sexton correctly diagnosed it as Hypothyroid. Our dog is now on a pill a day and is back to her normal self with no problems.

Have been coming here for over a year now and Dr. Sexton and staff are top notch. Super friendly and a nice clean practice. I highly recommend taking your pet here.

We have taken our dogs and cats to Dr. Sexton for well over 2 decades and are thrilled he and Laurain are back in Alamo in their own practice again. And they've hired a very capable, friendly assistant Devon. Because of their excellent care, our pets have been able to live out long and healthy lives. Twice we thought our beloved old shepherd mix Jake was ready to be put down, and both times Dr. Sexton rightly disagreed. Most recently when, at the age of 14 and with a bad knee, Jake fell into a creek and got stuck in the mud and his back legs wouldn't work when we pulled him free, Dr. Sexton & Laurain came out, scrambled down the steep creek bank and, after examining Jake, gave us the good news that it was not a "life ending event." Jake recovered and, while still old and creaky, continues to enjoy his evening walks and chows down every meal. Dr. Sexton is practical, recommending against some expensive treatments that proved unnecessary, and he is compassionate. Their modest clinic shouldn't dissuade anyone--I really appreciate that because they don't have fancy offices and their overhead is lower as a result, they can charge reasonable rates and still provide the best care possible.
