I give this place ZERO stars by Caitlin B. at InsiderPages
Simply because they charged me $164 + change to euthanize my rat!! A rat!! She was sweet and I was sad to see her suffering, but if I had known it was going to cost that much, I would have let her pass away at home. Price was never discussed. I tried to bring it up before the procedure but it's hard to talk when choking back tears. The vet (I forget her name but she was tiny) said, Don't worry, we can send you a bill. When I got the bill in the mail I was LIVID. Charging that much to put down a rat, or any animal IMO, is adding insult to injury. This place is ridiculous!!! I understand that veterinarians need to make money, but overcharging customers is not that way to do. Now I am certain that they will never get any business from me.

I had a rat put down a few years ago when I lived in Davis and that didn't cost anymore than around 30 bucks. I also had a 17 year old cat put down in Davis, and that cost around 100 bucks. Something is wrong with the VCA. I am never going back. And I am trying to contest this recent bill. I would simply refuse to pay it except that I'd rather not have a collection agency after me....
DO NOT go to the VCA if you are looking for reasonable pricing.
