We want to thank Ron, all the veterinarians, and staff from Vet Playas in Tijuana, that took such wonderful care of our pet Chihuahua. He urgently needed a surgery to relieve a herniated disc that was preventing the mobility of his back legs. They did an amazing job on the surgery, and showered him with love, and care during his recovery stay! After only a week and a half Fred is now starting to walk again. The cost was only 20% of what it would have been in California.

What can I say, the folks at Vet Playas are literally the BEST! It doesn't get much better than this for those who value our pets as family members. They saved my 1.5yr old French Bulldog Mako from his death bed. Poor Mako's health quickly deteriorated from vomiting his food to his skin color turning yellow due jaundice. I took him to my local vet, who after charging me over $600 dollars for X-rays, bloodwork, fluids, medication, etc essentially told me my dog would have to be put down or would only live a few more days on medication. At that time I quickly opted for the medication and made an appointment at Vet Playas. Luckily Mako was barely able to survive the next couple of days. Upon arriving at Vet Plays, the entire team quickly went into action and Mako was admitted. They promised nothing except to provide the best and optimal care. I authorized Dr. Alfredo to personally monitor his health through the night. I literally received hourly updates on Mako's health, unbelievable! Mako was diagnosed with diaphragmatic hernia, it appeared to be hereditary as my dog was not involved in any accident whatsoever. I received a quote for the surgery, hospitalization, care, etc. Estimate was approximately $1500-1750 and I approved it on the spot. Curious to see how much this would run me at a specialized vet such as the VCA, they begrudgingly estimating the cost to be between 7500-10K!!! Never ever ever again will I take my bulldogs to any vet except Vet Playas!!! Thank you, guys!!! Photo of Vet Playas - Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico

Vet Playas was AMAZING. Our my 3 year old son accidentally stepped on our 2 month old pug and broke her back leg. We went to a vet here in California and they wanted close to $6,000 for the surgery and follow up appointments. There was no way we could afford that right now. Thankfully my husband looked into Vet Playas and contacted Ron. I was really skeptical but Ron made me feel comfortable. Ron was amazing and ALWAYS kept us updated. They sent us pictures of her the whole time she was down there. The surgery went well and we have our puppy Buttercup with us now. They also referred us to MexiVet Express who took our dog across the border and back. Her name is Ana and she is amazing. Overall I am so thankful for them. They saved our dog and saved us THOUSANDS of dollars. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I love this place. I will drive and will continue to drive for hours for my fur baby to get the best treatment possible. They are extremely friendly and they know exactly what they are doing. I get my lab results within a few days, they are extremely professional. If you care about your fur baby as much as I do, you won't think twice about making that drive. The only down side I could say about this place is that the wait is a bit frustrating but it's worth it. So please make a appointment, I hate hearing people complain in the waiting room. If you didn't have an appointment and drove 2+ hours to get there; guess what? That's your fault.t
