Dr. Deo is remarkable – I have been taking pets to Dr. Deo since I was a kid with the family dog. A few years ago I moved to East County and began taking my dog to someone more local. On Friday 3/23/12, my almost 14 year old dog developed a skin infection on her face. I took her to a vet in Santee who gave her an antibiotic. On Wednesday 3/28/12 I took my girl back to the Santee vet for nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and anorexia. This Santee vet told me she was in liver failure and recommended we euthanize her at that time.
Heartbroken I took her to Dr. Deo on 3/29/12, who had treated her when she was a pup, for a second opinion... I am so thankful I did.
He has her admitted under his care along with the more than professional staff there who cried along side of me as I told them what has happened to my girl, he arranged for x-rays and ultrasounds and got her comfortable there for over night observation. I went in this morning to see my dog and his staff greeted me warmly as well as Dr. Deo who came and reviewed everything with me with kind words and a hug. My dog is looking good and he thinks she can go home on Sunday, 4/1/12, her 14th birthday.
Turns out she had acute renal failure possibly due to the antibiotic from the other vet, who wanted to euthanize her on the spot.
Dr. Deo and staff saw my old dog for the spunky teenager she is. When the other vet was ready to give up on my dog, Dr. Deo and his staff have nursed her back to health. I owe them so much.
Do Not Bring your pet here! – These vets are suppose to be doctors, so they should know that throwing up and not eating are symptoms of parvo, yet........
I was extremely disappointed in their services. I brought my pug to get his shots on a Saturday afternoon and by Sunday night he was feeling horrible. He was throwing up and did not want to eat. By the following Sunday he died from Parvo. The vets did not test him for parvo until the very end. These vets are suppose to be doctors, so they should know that throwing up and not eating are symptoms of parvo, yet they racked up our bill and waited till the end. My puppy was a healthy beautiful pug, they even said so when we took him for the first time. WE believe he picked up parvo here! Do not Bring your pet here! You will regret it!
Bad grooming services – Bad grooming. I took my dogs there because I needed special shampoo for one of my dogs and someone recommended to buy it there. My dogs needed grooming and after checking South Bay Vet Hospital's web site I saw that they pride themselves on offering a full line of professional dog grooming services so I decided to give it a try but It has been the worse grooming that my mini poodles ever had. Only clippers were used in the whole body and nothing was trimmed with scissors on their long hair on face or head, only the clippers were used and now their hair looks horrible. Nothing was cleaned on their private areas, ears or teeth. They charged $55.00 for each including $10.00 for teeth cleaning. It is all my fault for trusting this place only for the nice things they say on their web site, I should of taken my dogs to the Real Professional people at Posh Poodle in Lemon Grove which are very good.
