We have our first puppy, a ****zue, 5 months old and we live in Irvine. We currently have a wonderful vet but expensive. For example, fecal testing is $55, grooming $55, boarding $30 per day. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

I have a wonderful vet, Dr. Julie Stegeman, DVM, who has been treating my elderly lab for the past 5 years. She's been spot on with the diagnosis of my dog's complicated medical issues. The one time she was on leave between switching practices, my dog went to urgent care at the old practice and was misdiagnosed by the urgent care vet--that vet didn't spot the signs of pneumonia.

Dr. Stegeman is also sensitive to financial constraints and will work accordingly. As an aside, getting medications thru Costco is a huge cost saver for folks that have dogs on expensive meds. I have literally saved thousands by buying my doggie's meds Costco.

Unfortunately, I can't help out with a price comparison so you would have to call to compare prices. Without question I would bring my next dog or puppy to Dr. Stegeman:

I think every Vet in Irvine is too expensive, you're basically paying for their new building and pristine appearance, not better care for your pet.

I say screw all that and go to an older established area where the Vet has been working with clients for 20, 30 years.

We had an awesome Vet "All Creature Care Cottage" IN Costa Mesa

Compare @ these Prices:
Grooming 30
Boarding 17.50 a day

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but these are some nicest best qualified vets I have ever seen, these people care about your pet.

I found my vet through a friend who breeds dogs and has 5 dogs of her own. I always wondered how she afforded all the vet bills. We now go to Brookhaven Animal Hospital in Garden Grove. No fancy building or elite reception area but great care at a great price. Sandy is the RVT there and will see your animal for a lot less than the actual doctor. There is a doctor on site if needed but Sandy is a wealth of knowledge. Our dogs love her. When she couldn't help my dog for something she referred us to a specialist in Irvine that we loved but was expensive. I have told many people about them and they are all happy with their service.
