It’s a much nicer facility than the previous one in Menlo Park. Good parking on site as well.

Go Jan Lowry!

That’s my vet clinic! Woof, woof! Great lighting as well!

Free dog treats to boot!

We were long-time clients of Mid-Pen Animal Hospital. After a near-death experience exiting their garage onto El Camino traffic going 50+ miles per hour, we decided to change vets and chose one with a safer parking entrance and exit and less likelihood that a runaway pet would be killed in traffic. We are so disappointed by this new location.

@KateF: “After a near-death experience exiting their garage onto El Camino Real.”

You need to get out more and sharpen your driving skills. What do you when you’re pulling out of a parking garage in San Francisco? You use patience and exit when it is safe. Most merchants along that five block stretch in Redwood City have a similar type of parking and exiting situation. And people seem to be just fine with it.

I’ve been to the new vet center five times, and I’ve been grateful for the parking garage on every visit.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
