Most Affordable and High Quality Veterinary Clinic – I am going there for my 2 cats and a dog since last 2 years. The most affordable and best veterinary clinic of Sacramento. Both Veterinarians are best- always gave me good advise. I was impressed with there affordability and high quality medicine. I would recommend everyone to go there.

So in this case there was no misdiagnosis. Client was notified about the lab result and oncologist consultation was recommended . Thanks- Del Paso Veterinary Clinic

Misdiagnosed my dogs cancer – Do not take your pets to this vet for any serious medical conditions. Both Dr. Ball and Dr. Kahbra misdiagnosed my dog's cancer, even though they had the biopsy results showing "probable aggressive adenocarcinoma". They did surgery to remove the tumors and told me they were benign and not to worry and didn't recommend any further treatment. I trusted them and was happy (of course) that the tumors were benign. Less than 2 months later, the tumors grew back larger than before. I took her back and was then told I needed to see an oncologist as the tumors were probably malignant. It was at this time that I was shown the biopsy results which clearly stated "probable aggressive adenocarcinoma". Dr. Kahbra would only say that he thought that was "inconclusive". I had the biopsy results reviewed by 2 specialists and they both couldn't believe how badly my dog was misdiagnosed!!! Sadly, by that time my dog was so sick that I no longer had the option to have the tumors removed again or to try any other treatments and I lost my dog.

Under new ownership - Great Doctor – I am not sure when specifically it happened, but some time within the past year Del Paso Vet Clinic changed owners. The new doctor, Dr. Kahbra, is wonderful. He seems to care very much about the animals. The spay/neuters he has done for my animals have been wonderful and I've never had even one issue after surgery. He is the type that shakes your hand every time he sees you. I am very happy with the change in ownership. Oh yes, they are also open till 8pm on Wednesdays which is great for me to be able to make appointments that do not conflict with my work schedule.

Cheap Price = Cheap Service/Results – I took my 2 rabbits to Del Paso to be spayed & neutered because I called around and it was the cheapest. Unfortunately, they didn't have the best service. My rabbits' nails were not trimmed well, my girl's spaying incision should have been glued because it's better than stitches, they didn't care about her chewing on stitches or being uncomfortable in her very tight head cone, and my rabbits were not handled very gently or attentively, which my other vet is great at doing. I suggest spending the few extra dollars on better care for your pet(s).

All About the Money – I had used this clinic for a few years, and overall I was happy, until recently. I have an older dog that was tested for heartworm by Dr. Bell, and though she "Kia" has no symptoms was told she had it. I did the antibiotic treatment indicated, and the heartguard regimen from then on. I was told that the full treatment to eradicate the heart worms would likely end her, and since she was old that I should just look for any progressive symptoms. Since then each time I have attempted to refill the heartguard I was told that they needed to do more bloodtests, which of course is more money for them. This makes no sense at all, for (1) she is too old for a treatment that could end her, (2) she has no symptoms, (3) heartguard is preventive, and accordingly would not do her any arm if she did, or did not have the worms anymore. The fact that this clinic refuses to provide the heartguard without more money for tests is a clear indicator that this vet, like so many others, is all about the money, not treating animals appropriate for a fair value.

Great local clinic – As a former employee and current client of Del Paso, I can vouch for their high quality of care and service. They offer affordable treatment and walk clients step-by-step through a variety of care options. That said, you may need to bring along some patience for special events like late night shot clinics when staff may be overwhelmed by the volume of clients and unexpected emergency cases that may stumble in. Locally owned, small practices are increasingly rare in the veterinary field, offering more personal care and community perspective. This clinic gives back by supporting local arts, treating animals for the (sizable) homeless population, and working with a local rescue group, Happy Tails. I highly recommend this clinic!

Veterinarian – Awful Doctor. Very rough with my cat. Had no patience. Cheap service. Seemed out of date. Left me sitting in the room for 30 minutes after seeing my cat. Spent about 7 doing the exam.
