Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I’ve been going to Dr. Gilger for over 13 years. He is practical and thorough. I don’t like being spoon fed information and he will even bring out “The books” to let me get every angle. I recently went in and got one of the new Dr’s (I don’t remember her name) and she was just as good, more on the compassionate/thorough side. It’s important to find a vet that matches your personality, and I did!"
    Robert B.
  • "Pet Vets is the best place we have ever been. Thank you for helping me with Casper’s hospice care. Thank you for Penny. You all make a big difference in a lot of lives. Bless you!"
    The Leber’s
  • "The staff is awesome! They really care for your pet and are super knowledgeable and friendly. The new location is great! Instead of just the vet they now have a dog washing station, dog training classes, a kennel, and lots of merchandise to purchase. They are very reasonably priced and to me they are worth every cent for the awesome care they give to my baby girl :)"
    Andrea B.
  • "Amazingly helpful and knowledgeable staff, excellent prices, and most importantly, great with my pets. I have gone to many and this is the first that I haven’t felt robbed after I leave"
    Sarah G.
  • "We have been going to Pet Vets for over 15 yrs. And Dr Rod is amazing as well as Dr Joe. We won’t take our dog anywhere else. They are honest and truly do care about the whole family”."
    Pam M.
  • "I was very impressed with this place. I took a rescued dog there and the veterinarian took his time examining him. He answered all our questions & didn’t recommend things to make more money. He understood we might not be keeping the dog permanently. However, we decided to keep the dog and will continue to patronize this pet clinic. We chose this place as it was highly recommended on the Folsom forum"
    JC P.
  • "Dr Joe & Pet Vets in Folsom True animal lovers…. and in my opinion the best vet in Folsom. Dr. Joe has to be one of the most compassionate and caring vets in the business. His wonderful treatment of Pet Vet patients and their owners is unlike any other Veterinarian or human Dr.s office I’ve ever experienced. I can’t recommend visiting Pet Vets and Dr Joe enough and I think you’ll agree he’s the best"
    Brian
  • "Pet Vets — Great people, Great Pet Care. I am new to Folsom and I recently had a very sick kitty. Even though Dr. Tish had never seen my kitty before, she treated him like one of her own. The rest of the girls who saw my kitty are extra special, too. A truly professional group"
    Carol
  • "While in the office, I watched as someone came in with their dog, and explained their problem. The doc came out and said, “Save your money”, then promptly shared with the person what they could do at home to treat their dog themself! When was the last time, if ever, you heard of a vet doing something like that?! I know a LOT of people who go to Pet Vets that are completely happy. In my opinion, and judging by everyone else’s reviews, Pet Vets rocks!"
    Mr. Lead F.
  • "You are all very special to me and my family. The love and concern you all put forth when dealing with Teva’s mystery illness was more than anyone could hope for when caring for a beloved family member. Thank you. After her passing, the cash donation you made in her name to UC Davis (Veterinary) was more than I could have ever expected. We have been with you for about 15 years. Five dogs and two cats later, and you guys keep getting better and better! Thank you so very much. Please don’t change… we are loyal Pet Vets people."
