We were unfortunately forced to take our young cat Jekyll in for what turned out to be a life-threatening urinary blockage multiple times. After the third time, Evolution Vet recommended surgery which would (hopefully) permanently correct... the problem. Over the weeks we worked with Evolution Vet, they were consistently communicative, understanding, patient and encouraging. Five stars does not nearly convey how much we appreciate them for saving our cat and dealing with our five-times-a-day phone calls with grace and compassion. Thank you to the entire incredible staff!read more

Both my cats ended up at Evolution in the past month. Everyone who worked with my cats was extremely informative and caring. One of my pets needed to spend the night and I appreciated the updates on her condition throughout the entire... time. Thanks to their care, my cats are now healthy and back home. My sincere thanks - I highly recommend the team at Evolution.read more

My 14 year-old dog Ralph was diagnosed with congestive heart failure a week ago today. My vet put him on some medication, but over the next few days, his condition started declining. I knew I wanted to have him seen by a cardiologist, but... I thought I'd have to wait until the following week to do so, assuming anyone could even fit us in. I did some googling, and came across Evolution Veterinary Specialists. They told me I could bring Ralph in right away, and that they could consult with their cardiologist (who wasn't in at the time) if necessary.I dropped Ralph off with them shortly after the call. It was the first time he had ever stayed at a vet overnight, and I was a wreck. They called me with regular updates, and every time my phone rang, I would panic, but all of the doctors and technicians were so upbeat and optimistic. After two nights, several tests, a pulmonary hypertension diagnoses, and some medication adjustments, I was finally able to pick Ralph up and bring him home.It's been a little over 24 hours, and I can't believe how much better he is doing. It's like night and day. He's back to his old self (though a bit more sleepy), his appetite is coming back, and he seems so much happier. One week ago today, I didn't know if we'd still have him around past the weekend, so I am beside myself.It's also worth mentioning that Ralph is pretty aggressive with anyone who isn't me. I always worry about taking him to new doctors, because he's not an easy patient. They were able to help him despite his grouchy demeanor, and that really means a lot. Ralph's care was not inexpensive, but it was worth every penny to have more quality time with him.read more

Evolution is awesome. We had an emergency with our 10 week old puppy and our vet recommended Evolution. They took her in without wait, explained their diagnosis, treatment plan and cost estimate in good detail and it all made me feel a lot... more comfortable. They kept her overnight and she was much recovered by the morning. The staff was friendly and professional from start to finish.read more

After going to other emergency vets over many years we had our first experience with Evolution recently. Short answer, this was the best combination of helpful staff, caring and knowledgeable vet, and fair prices. Couldn't be happier about... the care our dog received here!read more

I became aware of Evolution Veterinary Specialists conducting a blind study to determine the effectiveness of various medications for congestive heart failure in dogs. My dog is part of the study. I am impressed to have in my neighborhood... this facility that conducts advance research. My dog has responded well to the medication, and it feels good to participate in a study that will help other dogs too.All the folks there have been kind and professional in all my dealings with them. My impression is that the hospital and staff are an excellent place for care and treatment of our fur babies.read more

Evolution Veterinary Specialists are absolutely outstanding. As much as I don't want to be bringing my kitties in for emergency care, I've used Evolution three times over the past few months. Their staff is knowledgeable, compassionate,... and always there for me. The fact that they are open 24/7 gives me great comfort when I need it the most. Dr. White is fabulous. I wish she could be our regular vet! But very grateful she is there when we're worried and in crisis. Thank you!!!read more

I had an emergency after two of my dogs got into it one evening. I hurried my more injured dog in around 8pm on a Friday night and was seen immediately! I originally went to Alameda East, but they informed me how busy they were and... recommended Evolution. I am very pleased with the recommendation and will be letting all of my pet parent friends know that this is the best spot for an emergency situation. The staff was so accommodating to my dog and my needs and were super friendly with the whole process. On top of all that, it was not a crazy expensive visit either!If you are in need of a wonderful, honest, well priced veterinary clinic, I HIGHLY recommend Evolution.read more

(Even though it was the hardest thing ever) 😢 thanks again Evolution you’re the best!read more

My little girl ( 4 yr. old black cat) had a bad reaction to a rabies vaccine and they were able to get her all fixed up late at night and reassure me everything was going to be alright and it was. I thought it was going to cost me an arm... and a leg but the price for what was done was pretty reasonable. I highly recommend. A compassionate and knowledgeable team works here.read more

Great urgent care veterinary hospital. Very friendly, clean and efficient. Allowed us to go in with our dog with COVID strict safeguards in place. April, vet tech Britany and Dr. Koehler took great care of us in a professional and timely... manner. Very thorough and caring. Our Shiba was more relaxed then normal vet visits.read more

I moved to the area about 3 months ago and due to COVID many primary vets are not taking on new clients at this time, so I was referred to Evolution when I called one vet about my dog (Reggie, 2 y/o shepherd mix) who we suspected had... kennel cough.Evolution was able to get us in right away you could tell they were dedicated to keeping both the animals and the people coming in to their building safe.Because of the symptoms I mentioned over the phone, the vet tech had me come in through a separate entry to avoid Reggie contacting any other dogs/spreading his cough. As for me, they were sure to clearly explain all the social distancing measures they were taking in order to ensure their staff and visitors. The room was very clean and the vet tech (I forget her name but she was so nice!) and the vet (Dr. Liz!) were extremely kind and thorough.Reggie is my first dog ever and this was the first time we've had to come in for something beyond vaccinations and a regular check up. I was so grateful to the team at Evolution for encouraging me to express all of my questions and concerns and to clearly walk through their answers.I recommend Evolution to anyone who is looking for quality care for their fur baby!read more

Thank you so much to the kind, caring and compassionate humans at EVS. Our Mazie Moo was given a fighting chance with their expertise and I was guided along the way with some very tough decisions. Dr. McGuire was amazing, in the tough... phone call to myself to meeting my husband at the front door at 11pm just so he could say hi to our pup. Expectations were clear and we knew she was in the best, knowledgeable hands. A special thank you to the nurse who spent an hour explaining, planning and teaching me how to care for my moo at home, your kindness did not go unnoticed.As I did many times, I broke down at one point and said "I'm sorry I'm crying, I just love her so much and want to do what's right". The response from Dr. McGuire was exactly what I needed to hear to make my decision, she said "never apologize for loving you animal". I can't tell you how much we appreciate you giving us more time with our pup! She is the light of our lives!read more

Everyone here was kind and helpful the whole time my dog was hospitalized. It was a hard moment for us, but knowing he was in good hands was calming. They kept us up to date on how he was doing, as well as what we could expect to happen.... They also explained everything, including the treatments and medications, to us in great detail making sure we knew exactly what was happening.read more
