As a former employee (veterinary Â technician) to a Vca in Philadelphia I would not recommend anyone to bring their pets to any Vca location. It is money hungry, evil corporation that does notÂ Care about your pet, but more so your wallet. I have worked at Vca for more then a year and noticed TheÂ client numbers diminish dramatically. Why is this you ask? Well,Â Vca over charges almost quadruple the amount for what a vaccine should be. Why spend 50$ on a vaccine when you can get the same vaccine for 5$ at the SPCA. Surgeries are a rip off as well. They say you are paying for top quality care when they barely putÂ money into any new equipment. There was a death recently from a dental
Because the moniter was not working properly. The practice also has an anesthetic machine that was hand built InÂ the 1960's. I guess thats top
Quality for Vca. For a routine spay and neuter you will be paying betweenÂ Â 250- 400$. Save ur money people and go to the SPCA or a dive clinic and pay 50-100$$. Dentals are the biggest rip off of all. Its a half
*** scaling job used with cheap fluoride paste. Dentals at any vca are 400$ + . And that does not include bloodwork!! If it were up to the dr's it would be half
The price vca charges. As someone who has done multiple dentals on pets I advise you to save your money and look around at other places before you take them to Vca. To the people
Who still go to Vca - do you remember the puppy
And kitten bundles. It was fabulous wasn't it? 300$ for Â 3 exams , fecals, all the necessary vaccines and more forÂ Your little one. Then onlyÂ 150-200$ for neuter and spays included!! SeemedÂ To good to be true. I believe i sold over 100 of those
Â Packages. PeopleÂ Loved it because they were getting alot for their dollar.Â Vca discontnued those packages because they said they were losing money!! People were getting to much for thereÂ Money !! Vca's new logo is "client Â centered, petÂ Focused". Nothing about that logo is true and should not be used for that corporation!! It should be money centered, money focused".Â If you areÂ Looking for a career do not fill at an application at Vca. SomeÂ Employees that i worked with have not received a raise in 5+ years.Â The insurance through Vca is also I joke!! I would
Know because I had to switch it to another insurance. They do not care about employees you are just a body paid minimum wage and they expect you to do mexican work. Vca wonders why they are losing clients, but it'sÂ All pretty simple to understand. when u raise prices to a ridiculous amount more then onceÂ A year, people can not afford a 300$ bill forÂ Simple routine visits!! I've seen people walk into where I worked very happy mostly because of the great staff, Â and leave scrating there heads dissapointedÂ because they spent 300$$ and they don't know on what. Vca is run by cluelessÂ Millionaires who sit around in there expensiveÂ Mansions calculating numbers for what wouldÂ Make them even richer!! Vca ( veterinary centers of America) more like veterinary center of ***!!!
