Our family moved to Valley Center in 1986, and very shortly thereafter, we needed a veterinarian. That’s when we met Henry Van Wyk, who remained our vet til the day he retired. So we truthfully were a little concerned when we learned he would be leaving us. We needn’t have worried! Dr. Natasha Clarke has embraced our community and brought to Valley Center Veterinary Clinic a wonderful combination of modern technology and traditional country veterinary medicine. What we appreciate the most about Dr. Clarke was how she took her time getting to know us and our pets. She knew the importance of gaining our confidence and did exactly that with her calm and professional demeanor, and most importantly by treating our animals with gentle compassion. She has introduced us to Acupuncture, and to Reiki, which has made a huge difference for several of our dogs. And now the clinic even offers exotic animal care: folks who live in the country don’t always just have dogs and cats and livestock! The staff at VC Vet is great: everyone is friendly, efficient and caring. We love being able to email Dr. Clarke with questions and concerns, and we always feel that we are getting the most comprehensive care for our pets, without any unnecessary tests and treatments… and all this is just a few minutes from our home! Thank you, Dr. Clarke for giving us peace of mind. Our critters mean the world to us, and we know that the folks at Valley Center Veterinary Clinic will always treat them like their own beloved pets. We couldn’t ask for more.
You can feel the kind and caring attitude of the staff the minute you walk into the clinic. Dr. Clarke gives 110% every day, is a great veterinarian, listener, educator and always offers financial options when available. What more could you ask for?
Norah and I met Dr. Natasha Clarke some years ago when we followed Dr. Amy Ito from Temecula to Valley Center Vet Clinic. We so trusted Dr. Ito that we would not take our beloved Golden Retriever, Soleil, to anyone else. Immediately we fell in love with Dr. Clarke and the whole staff at VCVC. Dr. Clarke is one of the best diagnosticians we have ever worked with and she has such a genuine love for her patients. Soleil actually would get excited when we said we were going to see Dr. Clarke. At 12 1/2 years old, Soleil passed in October 2014 after a 21/2 year battle with cancer. Dr. Clarke and her staff made the whole ordeal as easy as possible with their great care and love for Soleil and us. We now have a new Golden puppy named Joshua, and we would not go anywhere else for his vet care. The 20 mile drive is well worth it. We feel that Dr. Clarke and her staff are more than just our vets, they are our friends.
For a number of years Dr. Natasha Clarke has been and continues to provide the highest possible medical care and treatment to all members of the Willowind Lhasa Apso family. There is no other veterinarian in the state of California I would trust more than Dr. Clarke with health and care issues of my Lhasa’s. She is just as concerned about their treatment, recovery and welfare as I am. Dr. Clarke explains every condition, issue, illness and treatment plan in great detail in words and examples a non veterinarian can understand. She genuinely cares about your animal well being and their quality of life. Dr. Clarke is honest and up front with you and does not hesitate when a specialty issue occurs to recommend and refer your animal to a specialist. She calls and emails to check on their condition and helps you through your concerns. Dr. Clarke not only treats their symptoms, she determine the root cause in order to improve their quality of life. I have every confidence my Lhasa Apsos always receive the highest and best medical care available anywhere from Dr. Clarke. Every member of Dr. Clarke’s staff is always very polite, professional and helpful. Everyone listens and takes your questions and concerns seriously. Dr. Clarke and her staff have a five star rating in my book. Without hesitation I can state Dr. Clarke and her staff will provide the best medical care and treatment your animal could receive anywhere. With complete confidence I highly recommend Dr. Clarke as your primary Veterinarian.
When I have a great experience, I just want to shout it out to the world. This is the case with Valley Center Veterinary Clinic. I have been a Standard Poodle Breeder for many years and in that time I have been to several Veterinarians. I never had a great fit until now. Dr. Natasha Clarke and her entire staff are nothing short of amazing! First of all when you go there you feel like you are part of their family, they are all so caring and the personal touches they extend are seldom found in the world today. Dr. Clarke goes beyond any expectations I have ever had and has helped me develop protocols and practices that have allowed me to develop a successful breeding program and raise happy, healthy wonderful Standard Poodles.
Many of my “poodle people” listen to me rave about my Veterinarian, Dr Clarke and decide to take their new family member there. They are also thrilled with the care and some that drive to Valley Center express that it’s worth the drive to have a trusted, caring, knowledgeable and affordable Veterinarian. I couldn’t agree more and highly recommend Valley Center Veterinary Clinic for the care and treatment of anyone’s beloved pets.
