Laguna Niguel, CA
In response to the last post, I am extremely disappointed and shocked that any veterinarian worth their weight would go back and comment on a case that they had no involvement in. As in all walks of life, it is very easy to play Monday night quarterback, especially after a succesful outcome...only to claim that you could have done it faster and better also with a successful outcome.
After doing what we refer to as relief work in other practices, I have returned to Crown Valley Animal Care Center (CVACC). It is because of the extremely high quality of practice that we enjoy. For example, yes, you can get a spay or neuter done elsewhere cheaper. However, ask a few questions about the procedures that we at CVACC practice with the best intentions of taking every possible risk out of anesthesia....all animals placed under sedation have in-house bloodwork performed prior to anesthesia, an IV catheter is placed(a life line in case of an unexpected reaction), they are placed on fluids to maintain pressures, monitored with a continuous ECG, CO2/oxygen saturation, ventilator if needed, placed on a BAER hugger air flow body heater if needed, have an overnight nurse monitoring all patients withing the hospital, receive aggressive pain management, etc.
We have no apologies for not cutting corners. The old saying 'you get what you pay for'. Also Dr. Ivers and myself, Dr. Adams, attend numerous continuing education meetings each year (not only the easy local) but travel throughout the country to attend the more cutting edge, state of the art meetings including the annual Emergency and Critical Care convention.
I would be happy to entertain any questions that you may have.
Sincerely, Dr. Deborah Adams 949.495.1123
