What Our Clients Are Saying

A few years back quite by chance I found Dr. Manprit Natt and the Almaden Animal Clinic when we moved to Almaden. As a BayArea native and lifelong owner of both cats and dogs, I have required the services of vets off and on for years. To say I discovered one of the best animal care clinics in the valley that day is no understatement. What sets Dr. Natt and her staff apart is the perfect combination of care and skill. Dr. Natt provides personal, attentive treatment to pets and their people as well as the detailed, expert information and skill required to give pets the best options possible for their medical needs.  The bonus here is that Dr. Natt is an amazing diagnostician and treatment guru. She thinks outside the box, researches current findings and procedures and applies her many years of experience to create   individual treatment protocols based on what works, not what puts the most money in her pocket.  With her knowledge and her treatment steps, our senior Collie Star, enjoyed two more happy and playful years after being diagnosed with kidney failure at 25% kidney function.  One of the best clinics to bring a pet to in San Jose.

Now that she is focussing on Cochrane Animal Hospital, I plan to take my pets to this facility.”  — Madeline M.


I took our Grand dog Ginger in because of pain in her mouth. Dr. Natt recommended cleaning her teeth and possible removing a tooth (or two) if necessary.  Being a Boston Terrier, her age and the infection, her risk level was pretty high.  They took excellent care of her during the procedure, then send us home with the recommended meds. Ginger is doing great now, even though she had two molars removed.  I was thrilled with the service before, during and after the procedure.  Ginger showed signs of pain on Dec. 26 and they told us to come in  that same day for blood work with the procedure being done the following day.  I couldn’t have asked for better treatment for our little princess …Love this place and the price was lower than other vets in town.”  — Elizabeth H.


This vet is great! I’ve taken all my animals here and have had great service every time! The vet and vet tech’s are wonderful, easy to talk to and very nice. Plus the facility is immaculate which is pretty rare for a vets office! Always smells good in there too. 🙂 they treat my pets great and I wouldnt think of going anywhere else! Highly recommended!”        — Ashley L.
