I really love UVH and everyone that works there. They are accommodating to my dog's needs and he enjoys going to the vet. I have been going to UVH for about 20 years and will not go anywhere else. I highly recommend them!
I have been taking my four dogs to Dr.Mattu for 4 years, since I rescued the first one and I could not be happier with the care and attention they receive each time.Over the years, I have sometimes been to other places, and each time I went back to Dr. Mattu even more convinced that he was the best choice. Dr. Mattu is extremely competent and it is just obvious that he really cares. With three dogs who have an active life, I have had to deal with a number of issues, running eyes, red eyes, lethargy, snoozing, limping, diarrhea, etc. Dr. Mattu solved the issue each single time. And if he can't solve it himself, he will do what is necessary. One day, I went with one of my dog who was shaking, stiff and hardly responding. After quickly checking his vitals, Dr. Mattu urged me to take him to the emergency hospital where he could be watched during the night. As I was going there, he called them and when I arrived they had already been briefed and were expecting me. On that day, I know Dr. Mattu saved my dog. Sometimes he has also discovered some problems that were not yet noticeable thanks to being always very meticulous in his examinations. So I totally trust him, his knowledge and his experience. In addition, Dr. Mattu has a rare ability to make a personal connection with the dogs before he starts the examination. It is a way he has of being really present and considerate, the way he talks to them and touch them that make them relax, that I find just as valuable as his competence. Something else that I really appreciate is that when they show me the estimate of the exams they recommend, there is no pressure if I choose to postpone those that are not urgent. And I have always had a very good experience with all the people working with Dr Mattu at the University Veterinary Hospital. They are friendly, helpful and efficient. Finally, I found the location of the building very convenient, and the parking is easy.
