We stumbled upon ACC by chance. My dog was having a crazy case of Pancreatitis. He wouldn’t get up to eat/drink/go on a walk, leaving me scared and stressed with how to help him since I had no idea what was going on. I called our primary vet explained the severity and they couldn’t get me in that day. I called our backup vet and they had no availability. Finally I just drove to ACC (where I had never been) with my sick dog and they MADE TIME FOR HIM right then knowing that it was imperative he receive treatment as soon as possible.

Since then, we have brought all of our pets to ACC and have made Dr. Barber our primary vet. We feel comfortable with her and trust her. It is the entire team that make you feel comfortable and as if you were apart of the family. The team clearly talks you through the cost of everything before proceeding so you aren’t stuck with a giant surprise bill at the end of your visit. I appreciate the transparency.

When my elderly cat began having health problems, the vets were supportive and kind. They recommended ways to support her and never pushed things that I said I wasn’t able to afford. They did what they could to work within my means while still providing her with exceptional care. When she passed not only did I receive a card from the clinic, but I also received a personalized card from the vet that I had been working with over the years since I had adopted my elderly cat. This business truly cares about the animals and people that they serve.

These vets know their stuff. Compassionate and very knowledgeable. Very aware of owners feeling and fears. Their staff are very responsive and professional. Their waiting area is spacious and treat dispensers for your pets. my dogs look forward to their Cheerios. Cheapest place in town? No but definitely worth the care you get.

Melanie L.

The most caring staff you will ever encounter. They will explain every procedure and every medication that they are performing/giving to your pet, to make sure you have a comprehensive picture of their health. The staff even goes out of their way to call you in a few days after your visit to make sure that your pet is happy. If you love your pet like a child there is no reason to go any other place, than Animal Care Clinic.


I completely trust the vets at Animal Care Clinic… I have seen a couple different vets over the years and everyone has explained everything during exams and answered any questions. They are also careful when handling my cat and are so friendly!

Jen P.

Animal Care Clinic has been so wonderful to us and they’ve taken care of all our animals for many years. I would highly recommend their services to everyone I know!

J. C.

I want to say how friendly and professional the whole team at Animal Care Clinic are. Every time I walk through the door, I am greeted with a smile, however busy the clinic is. Everyone has the pet’s best interests at heart and I love the fact that the clinic dedicates time to training and ensuring they are always offering the best medicine and veterinary advice that you can get anywhere. They are warm, friendly and definitely a premier clinic and I am grateful for everything they do.

Amanda C.

We have been taking our 2 dogs to the Animal Care Clinic for 8 years, since we first adopted them as puppies from Woods Humane Society. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable and seem to genuinely care for your pet.


The only place i would trust to treat my much loved Pug.

Doug S.

They are well versed on the current best practices in veterinary health and always go the extra mile to address any concerns I may have.

Christopher E.

They were extremely respectful of my desires…The staff were very polite and helpful, and the office was by far the cleanest vet office I have ever seen.

Jackie P.

My cat has been here multiple times and the staff does well at making a situation that can be scary, very comfortable. Animal Care Clinic really goes above and beyond each and every time.

Tanya T.

Unlike so many in the SLO area, they care and they actually know what they’re doing. They are one of the few things we will miss having just moved away. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Kukana F.

Really professional clinic and their communication with the dog owner and handling of our dog for check ups is very sincere and thorough. The doctor was very good with talking with you directly so both of you fully understood any questions or direction. Thank you!


The staff is great with my very nervous dude and they always lay out the cost of everything up front so I know what my options are. Everyone (both techs and veterinarians) are very confident and knowledgeable without being pushy. I always recommend ACC to friends in SLO.

Cheyenne S.

Amazing staff that genuinely care about your animals: I have two guinea pigs and recently they were showing signs of what could’ve either been ringworm or mites. They were able to get me in with Dr. Evan (who is knowledgable about rodents) within a day and were on time with my appointment. Receptionists loved my piggies and their names (Lentil and Yam) and were so sweet to them. Starting treatment now and it looks like they’ll be a-okay. Thank you guys!

I have a fear-aggressive rescue dog with trauma in his past. So, I contacted ACC to see if they had a better approach. I gave them examples and they soon experienced his aggression first-hand. HOWEVER, rather than becoming frustrated, they began to problem solve and ALWAYS kept my dog’s care and well-being in mind. I have been going to them for about 9 months now, and we have made very good progress (we had a small win today that allowed my boy to get simple routine care that he otherwise wouldn’t have tolerated AT ALL). They are truly dedicated to making their clinic a FEAR-FREE environment, so that their patients have LESS FEAR, and BETTER CARE. They worked with me to determine the best plan to keep the visit as FEAR-FREE as possible. I am so thankful to the care team – from the doctors to the vet techs – they all show their dedication to providing the best care for their patients!

Kari P.

I have been coming to Animal Care Clinic for over 20 years because they have the “cleanest” facility, “friendliest” staff and love my pets! A special thank you to Jennifer Evans and Bonnie Markoff for being the best!

Celeste V.

I cannot say enough about the compassion, professionalism and competence of the staff here. From the front desk to the techs to the doctors, they are incredible. In particular I would like to recognize Dr. Tao. I only wish I could find a doctor for myself who was half as good!

Rose D.

We had to have some dental work on our cat, the staff was very friendly, informative and helpful, they explained everything that they were going to do and when the work was done they called us and informed us and how it went, we are glad we took our cat to the animal care clinic.

Allan A.

Everyone I’ve encountered that works here makes me feel comfortable and heard about my concerns and questions about my dog. He has a bad ear infection and on my first visit I couldn’t have felt more appreciative of their attentiveness. Dr. Barber is very knowledgeable and kind.

Sara H.

Very professional and quick. Appreciate their dedication to the animals.

Allen K.

Just the most helpful happy group of people, how could they not be look what they’re dealing with puppies and kitties!

Lynn H.

I’m so glad I was referred to this place. They are so kind, professional, and personable. I feel like my new puppy Blue is in great hands, and it’s a huge relief! Highly recommend.

Clay V.

Animal Care Clinic is a professional, very compassionate, and overall wonderful practice. I’ve taken both my cat and dog here, and both of them have received incredible care. Their fear free techniques are awesome – my big babies aren’t afraid to go to the vet anymore. The staff are direct and upfront with any additional procedures or charges and offer alternatives just in case, which anyone who has paid a vet bill knows is very helpful. The kindness, professionalism, and level of care here are top notch – I won’t be taking my pets anywhere else.

Ashley B.

Had such a great experience here! The staff are pleasant and caring and deliver a consistent level of helpfulness, efficiency, and customer service. It’s obvious that their priority is helping your pet as they were able to work us in on short notice. Will keep coming back and will also recommend their clinic to our friends and family.

Recently my dog Nash had a fox tail in his paw. I took him in and the staff there was so kind and loving both him and me. They took care of Nash and after I took him home they called and checked up on him daily and were so courteous and friendly and kind and caring. This is the only place I would take any of my animals and a matter of fact it is the only place I take my animals to. I also have a cat named Buttercup who frequently visits there for shots and necessary visits. If you were looking for a veterinarian to care for your animals with over and above care and expertise, this is the place to go!

Mary S.

The staff here went above and beyond for my nacho kitty. I had to bring him back twice and the Dr and all the assistants were so helpful and explained everything to me and made sure that I totally understood my take home instructions. They have a number to text and talk to the Dr which of very helpful. I love this place. I would recommend it to anyone that wants their fur baby in the best possible care. Thanks you guys!

Angela W.

Vet Bonnie Markoff and her team are the most professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate animal care team around. These guys truly are a blessing. If you love your animal, take them to Animal Care Clinic. You and your pet are in good hands here!

John K.

Outstanding and caring for the human need and pet need.

Les L.

Great staff, excellent care. The veterinarians are compassionate and thorough. The support staff is kind and efficient and the front office staff is as friendly as can be. My pet has a complicated medical history and has been treated with exceptional care at Animal Care Clinic.

Rosa C.

These folks are the absolute BEST. We called in worried that our puppy was yelping and swatting at her jaw. They took her in immediately and removed a (bee) stinger from her tongue. We even received a follow up text the next day to check on her. It’s comforting to know they care about our puppy as much as we do. We can’t recommend this place enough.

Sarah R.

At Animal Care Clinic in San Luis Obispo, CA. Is one of the best clinic. The Vet. Doctors and the entire Staff does their best to care for our pets. My dog Candie Cane is very well cared for. Her needs and comfort and love given. The people who work here are part of the family. I am very happy with this clinic that I can trust her in their care when I need help right -a- way. ✌️♥️🤗

Delorise R.

I just dropped my dog off to have her teeth cleaned. This is the best vet clinic that I have taken her to. My favorite vet is Dr Meussel but all the Vets there are great.

Michael E.

Friendly staff loves all pets, reasonable fees, easy parking.

Richard Z.
We foster-adopted a kitten from a local shelter. The kitten was very sick. Thankfully the vet team got to the bottom of it and figured it out. It was very rare but it worked! We now have a healthy one year old cat that is loved and adored. From the minute you walk in to the minute you leave the staff treat you like a long lost friend.
