Just wanted to share my experience with all of you. I would strongly recommend Sonora Veterinary Specialist to care for your dogs. We recently adopted a boxer puppy, Tyson. He was about 6 months old and was cute as can be, my two young boys absolutely fell in love with him. Within a week, the puppy started acting strange. He seemed very lethargic, dehydrated and he wasn't eating. He for sure wasn't acting like the puppy we brought home. We called the clinic to see if they could help us out. They told us to bring the puppy in right away. Immediately Dr. Rizzo came out and met us. It appeared she was visually checking him out, checking his gums, his stomach, and his behaviors. She decided that she would run some blood tests on Tyson. We later found out that he had parvo. :( Dr. Rizzo was very good at explaining what needed to be done for Tyson to survive. The recommendation was that we leave him there so she can treat him. Dr. Rizzo was very sympathetic and caring towards us. Anytime we wanted an update on the dog, the office and Dr. Rizzo quickly responded. Turns out our Tyson survived!! She even told us that she hadn't seen a puppy recover so quickly from parvo as Tyson did! A huge thank you to Dr. Rizzo and her staff for testing our puppy and diagnosing him so early on. We appreciate all the professionalism that we received. We now have Tyson at home as healthy as can be! I would strongly recommend the clinic as well as Dr. Rizzo to anyone!

Great Experience

We had a wonderful experience with Sonora Veterinary Specialists and Dr. Rizzo. Our Maltese Mix was urinating frequently, having accidents in the house, and I even noticed blood in her urine. A friend recommended Dr. Rizzo at Sonora Veterinary Specialists. We made an appointment and we are so happy we found Dr. Rizzo and the clinic! When we walked in the clinic everyone was very friendly. We didn’t wait long before we were taken to an exam room. Dr. Rizzo came in and was great with our dog, Winni. She examined Winni and explained to me the different reasons that could be causing the problems. She took Winni back for x-rays and within minutes came back to the exam room to talk to me. Winni had bladder stones and needed surgery. Dr. Rizzo was kind and caring when she explained to me what this all meant. She could tell I was concerned and she took the time to explain everything in detail. Dr. Rizzo was able to do the surgery that day. Dr. Rizzo was very patient with all my questions. I never felt rushed when talking with her. She was even available by phone to answer my questions when we brought Winni home. I would highly recommend Dr. Rizzo and Sonora Veterinary Specialists.

Amazing 24 hour Emergency Clinic

I have had to bring my dogs and foster dogs to this facility many times. It is so wonderful to know that there is a 24 hour emergency facility available with a wonderful staff, knowledgeable and compassionate vets and in a convenient location to boot. They have always been nothing but nice and supportive when I have been there. Since it is a 24 hour facility, it is always open and they are always prepared for any emergency. As with all emergency clinics, they are not cheap, but they know their stuff and so willing to listen and work with you for whatever you need. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this facility. Thank Dog they are here!
