    Pet Name : CRICKET

    Dr. Spongberg and Blake are awesome!! We believe you both are responsible for saving the life of our puppy and we are so grateful for the care you gave and that you never gave up hope and continued to find the answers to heal her. My last visit was with my kitty and I received the same care and concern that we did with our dog. Thank you.

    Pet Name : JASPER

    After the last vet that i took him to refusing to even look at him unless I spent $160 updating all his vaccines. It was a relief to find a dr who actually cared and treated him immediately. Staff infections are very scary, who knows how bad it could have gotten of Jasper had not been treated. Also deworming him. Thank you for treating him as a patient and not a money machine. And the helpful advice for his diet was much appreciated.

    If your pet is having issues, it is like your child is in danger. You expect a little compassion and care when entrusting a veterinarian practice. This is exactly what we got and more.

    We have been going to All Creatures Care Cottage for 11 years and have always had a pleasant experience. We loved Dr. Pasco and Dr. de la Torre. And continue to be very happy with Dr. Spongberg and Dr. Behm. They are very personable and truly care about their patients, they listen to our pets needs and always have solutions to any issues they may be having. All Creatures Care Cottage has always taken care of my furry kids, from the caring doctors to the extra TLC from Blake to Melissa‘s always friendly greeting. We feel very safe leaving our animals to be cared for by All Creatures Care Cottage.

    Pet Name :HARLOW

    I’ve been taking my pets to ACCC for several years and I really like the email news letters, reminders and pet advises I receive. It’s pretty cool. As for my recent visit, I called in to pickup flee pills and when I arrived, they were ready for pick up. I didn’t have to wait. ACCC has become more efficient and is applying more advance technology which has been the bigger change I see.

    I’ve taken both my kids there for years (Buddy & Figaro). I am always given options on any medical issues I’ve had with them. Buddy passed away at 18 1/2 years and Figaro is still going at almost 19 years old. Everyone there is always so caring. So helpful. I will always recommend anyone to come here. I may not live close anymore, but I will always bring Figaro for her visits.

    “I just started taking my puppy here…a rescue. Everyone there is so very friendly. I used to take my turtle there for years. It’s a great place.”

  • A


    “Great Vet that is good for all Guinea Pigs, Ferrets, Dogs & Cats. We took our Guinea Pig here both of them before they died. Dr Pasco was wonderful with them. Pasco was very knowledgeable about Guinea Pigs and helped us through hard times. The doctor was very helpful with our 2nd Guinea Pig too. Our dog has been here several times and they have always treated us fairly and always charged a decent price. There staff is very nice too and empathetic in times of loss. We encourage anyone with small pets and dogs to try them as they have an old fashioned feel good place unlike those places that look like a resort.”

    “This was the first time visiting this location. I had to bring in Buddy our 16 1/2 year old poodle who was suffering from several illnesses. Unfortunately Buddy had to be put to sleep. My kids 18 & 21 were raised with Buddy so as you can imagine this was extremely difficult. Doctor and all of the staff I dealt with were extremely compassionate and helpful and my heartfelt gratitude goes out to everyone there. Sincerely Frank and family.”

    “I took my tortoise here for a runny nose. The vet was amazing. It turned out my little guy was much sicker than I thought, with the help of the doctor shes making a pretty speedy recovery. She didnt charge me as much as she could have and even saw me last minute when I didnt have an app. Love this place and have recomended it to many other reptile owners”

    “My Doberman got in a fight with a pit bill and my Doberman was badly wounded. All creatures care cottage took outstanding care of him and whilst it cost me a pretty penny to get my boy back on track it could have been much worse. They didn’t charge me for check-up visits and were very kind in doing their best to keep the bill down! All the staff I met were fantastic and understanding – real animal people! Can’t say enough good things about ACCC – good stuff!!”

    ” I have a little American Bullfrog who injured both of his arms, but by the time I was sure there was something wrong it was 4pm on Mon. I called 4 vets clinics before finally reaching All Creatures Care (the others in my area either didn’t serve frogs or didn’t have a doctor in that day) and they promised if I could get there an hour before closing (6pm) they would see my pet, despite them being busy.

    And even though I was a last minute walk-in, my frog was seen after waiting only 20 mins (people I saw with appointments weren’t waiting more than five).

    The staff and Doctor were kind, quick, professional, and the bill for the meds/visit was decently priced. But more importantly, I’m really grateful they were able to see my pet on such short notice. They saved my frog an extra day of pain and gave me piece of mind. Hopefully my little guy gets better and I never have to go back but, I’m glad it’s around if/when I need it. All Creatures Care Cottage will be the first place I call from now on.”

    ” I have been coming here for 6 years, they treat my Netherland Dwarf Rabbit, Rag Doll & Scottish Fold Cats. When I brought my dwarf rabbit in he had a stomach blockage and had gone into GI stasis, anyone with rabbits knows that most pets will die from this. ACCC worked with me for over a month and we were able to save him from something most rabbits die from. They also treat my cats, they never charge me for anything I do not need, are immensely knowledgeable where other vets lack and the staff is the best in the world, each and every member there is wonderful and have been there for years, which tells you this is a good place.

    For those who had negative reviews, Im sorry they are incapable of applying logic to their complaints, this is what worries me about people (anyone) being able to leave reviews, it should come with their IQ listed next to their name so you know whom to dismiss. Mr. Wong, they directed you to an emergency facility which is where you should have contacted if your dog was in need of immediate attention, you dont call your physician with allergic reaction, you go to the ER; same goes for pets genius. As for the other guy if you called at 5:30 and they close at 6 my guess is they weren’t going to fit you in because by the time you got there (even two blocks away) it would have been time for them to close, and past closing time once you were done being seen, how about being respectful with peoples time and business hours and call ahead of time.. or just go to that other vet place as I am sure that is both good for them not dealing with some demanding a-hole like yourself. They cant defend themselves but I can say what I please as a customer, so from me to you shove it up your you know what.”

    “I knew Dr. Pasco when he was at Sun Surf in Sunset Beach, well before he started All Creatures Care Cottage, and would follow him anywhere he practiced. Getting to know the doctor has been a rewarding experience and I could not have asked for anyone better to take over the practice. I trust him with all my feathered, finned and furry four legged companions. He is always informative and willing to take the time to answer questions. This has been very beneficial to me as my companions go through the various stages of life. The staff is very knowledgeable and caring and treat my pets and myself like family.”

    Thank god for this place. ..its very hard to find a great vet. .even harder to find an exotic specialist that doesn’t stress your animal out and is extremely patient and knowledgeable. For those who are worried about cost, they take care credit and the exam is only 50 I believe.

    I took my red eared slider turtle here today. Upon entering the building the decor is welcoming. I saw dogs, birds and rabbits eating to be seen in the waiting room. The clinic sees a variety of animals. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The doctor had a great bedside manner and provided educational materials upon discharge. This is now my veterinarian of choice! Thank you.

    All Creatures Care Cottage is a very warm and welcoming office. The entire staff are friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. We especially love seeing Melissa, Blake, Alicia and David. Dr Spongberg, Dr Behm and Dr Hayter are absolutely wonderful. We feel our dogs are getting the best care possible and that they are in safe and capable hands. Our dogs have been patients at All Creatures Care Cottage for 11 years and we travel all the way from Orange to Costa Mesa because we have always had such positive experiences there. We just love All Creatures Care Cottage and highly recommend them to all creatures big and small!!

    Keep up the good work. Your doctors and staff are kind, caring, and very knowledgeable–what more could a “pet parent” want? Your support during the euthanizing of one of our cats was amazing–it was as easy as an event like that could be. My husband and I have been patients at this clinic since 1992, and will continue for another 25 years or until we run out of cats. Thank you for all you do
