 6/16/14   5     5     5     4   Nice and empathetic doctor. Our dog required knee surgery. When we asked him questions, he showed us the xrays and educated us on the problems so we could make an informed decision. RID: 52128

Click to report rating    2/6/13   4     4     5     5   I have been to other vets before and am so glad that I met Dr.Ubi. The costs for the same procedures are less at Cambie Animal Hospital than the other hospital. Dr.Ubi would not give extra or unnecessary procedures. RID: 40206

 11/1/12   1     1     1     1   If you love your pet DO NOT take it to this hospital! Dr. Ubi comes across as a very nice, caring vet but it is not the truth. His hospital always seems severely under staffed and he can't seem to keep any knowledable employees for very long. He hires very inexperienced young people that seem to have no clue as to what is best for my pet. My beloved dog had terminal cancer and he performed a useless surgery - money grab! My dog was sent home in poor shape and died later that night. I have since learned that he often performs surgeries with no qualified assistant and that the patient care is severely lacking. A horrible place that I wish I'd never set foot in! RID: 38212

Click to report rating    9/7/12   5     4     5     5   I brought my ferret here 2 months ago to see Dr. Ubi. I found Dr. Ubi to be very honest (he does not push for unnecessary, expensive procedures), compassionate and definitely knowledgeable in ferret care. He always carried himself in a professional way and he was extremely courteous for a vet. I cannot say enough good things about this vet; I myself work for a vet so I know how difficult it is to come by a vet who isn't just looking to suck money out of you! The prices are quite fair considering the quality of services you get. Carol at the front desk was very helpful and understanding. Dr. Ubi was highly recommended by a local ferret shelter, and I can see why after bringing my own baby here. RID: 37059

     3/22/12   5     5     5     5   Cambie Annimal Hospital treated my little Multipoo dog from 1997 to Jan 6, 2007. In her last few years she had Cushings disease and needed alot of care. I found Dr Ubi to be a wonderful Vet, very knowledgable and wasn't afraid to consult another Vet if something was complexed about your pet. He is an extremely compasionate Vet and very caring. He handled the passing of my pet in a very sympathetic and delicate manner. I highly recommend this Hospital to other pet owners. RID: 33070

Click to report rating    3/9/12   5     5     5     5   I went to this clinic because it's close by and their rating is not too bad, since I couldn't get a time from my own vet, so I tried! The staff is very helpful, they are on time & professional! The Vet did take his time to check on my cat, she has an infection on her eyel The vet explain her situation well, and the staff shows their care for my cat as well by asking me if I know how to put eye drops into her eye and to actually show me how it's done right away! Although I've no idea how they charge, but after paying the bill, it explained what's been done and I find it's reasonable! I'll definitely go back! I hope my feed back helps your pets to find Vet Clinic that cares! *(^^)* RID: 32756

Click to report rating    2/8/12   5     5     5     5   Our dog has a chronic illness that took years and several vets to diagnose. When we were told by our vet that we could expect annual vet bills of about $6,000 a year, we knew we could not afford to keep him and considered letting him go. We decided to try Cambie Animal Hospital and found Dr. Ubi. It is not always easy for doctors to diagnose people‚Äôs illnesses, let alone vets whose clients cannot speak for themselves. Tests and diagnostics are a tool that help provide that information. It is these tests that make vet bills high. Our dog is excited to see Dr. Ubi. That speaks volumes to us. Dr. Ubi has helped us keep our dog pain free for over 5 years. He has provided reliable and consistent care. He has also made himself available in emergencies after hours. We trust his judgement implicitly and follow his advice as best as we can. When it comes time for us to part with our pet, we will know we provided him the best care possible. RID: 32080

Click to report rating    11/24/11   5     5     5     5   I have lived in Vancouver for almost 12 years and I have finally found an amazing vet clinic. Not only is Dr Ubi knowledgeable and personable, his staff truly go above and beyond. Whenever I have taken my dogs to see him, I always receive a follow-up phone call to see how my pets are doing!!! I have been to some very scary clinics out there... so trust me, you will not be disappointed here!!! Thank you to Dr Ubi and all of his staff for their incredible work ethics! RID: 29368

 6/13/11   5     5     5     5   Dr. Ubi is the best vet I have ever had the pleasure to work with. When I had a cat that had been suffering for years with Kidney disease, he helped me keep her alive for much longer than anyone thought she could live. He warned me that when the end came, it would be very obvious, and it was. He made a house call so that he could put her to sleep in my arms. --- He attends the top veterinary conferences in North America, and tells me the latest info in issues that concern me (a hobbyist breeder of cats). He has literally saved a failing kitten, and when I am expecting to have a litter, I can call him 24/7 if I run into problems. Recently my queen had to have a c-section. He and his staff worked harmoniously together, and the 3 vet techs literally breathed life into the 3 kittens that were born. Without them the entire litter would have been lost. When it was all over, he bought us pizza and pop so we could see the end of the hockey game. Absolutely TOP RATE. RID: 25595

Click to report rating    4/14/11   5     5     5     5   I live downtown and made the mistake of taking my cat to the Urban Animal Hospital just because it was nearby. I won't make that mistake again. Dr. Ubi gets good ratings for a reason: he cares about animals and he isn't out to rob you. RID: 24400

Click to report rating    11/27/10   5     5     5     2   Dr. Ubi is very patient and caring. He took the time out to explain the current info on vaccination to me, which was great. The girls in the front are always friendly, and have treats for my puppy. I was a little vexed at the pricing though... the cost of spay was over a 100 dollars more than the SPCA spay, and didn't include tattoo like the SPCA does. I also wasn't impressed that I was also charged $100 for a signature that my dog had no known health issues that would interfere with volunteer work, when my volunteer organization had told me signing such things is done at most vets for free. So a little more pricey, but good care given. RID: 21101

Click to report rating    11/4/10   5     5     5     5   I have only wonderful things to say about Dr. Ubi. We were concerned our little dog was pregnant after her first heat so we took her in. Dr. Ubi was very gentle with her and took his time. He said he felt something in her tummy (either a very small puppy or stool). I wanted to be entirely sure, but Dr Ubi recommended against further testing to save money and stress on our little dog. With our dates, he said if she was pregnant, she'd have give birth in the next couple weeks. He gave us guidelines for caring for her. He also recommended against having her spayed while she was pregnant because it is so high risk. Luckily, it turns out she was experiencing a false pregnancy. He truly had her well being over him possible monetary gain which makes him an excellent vet in my opinion. Dr. Ubi and staff have a genuine love for animals and it shows. Highly recommended.

Click to report rating    10/20/10   2     3     3     2   Took my previous dog here, dr. ubi injected steroids into him- which was not necessary ( I got a 2nd opinion). Took my 2 puppies here for a checkup, the Dr. on duty ( not Ubi) told me that everything was okay even though we told him that one of them kept on vomitting, and he could not tell whether the puppies' dewclaw was removed or not- he asked me, "Why is there a whole here?". Also, I told them to order a bag of medi-cal puppy food, and it arrived 8 months later. During this time, I had already switched their diets to raw and I had already changed vets. Also, the front counter staff are very fake and annoying especially the hippie white girl RID: 20409

Click to report rating    10/13/10   5     5     5     5   I drive an hour and a half to have Dr.Ubi check my ferret.He is very polite and is so good with my ferret that I highly recommend him. His price is also a lot lower than what I would pay in my hometown, well worth the drive and the staff are always so friendly and so good with my little Boo. RID: 20276

Click to report rating    10/25/09   5     5     5     4   Dr.Ubi & staff are great!! I had my lil one spayed there a few months ago, and they were very informative about the procedure. She also recently had a little accident swallowing a piece of her toy. Like all mothers, we get worried. They were able to explain everything to me...and of course made my dog a-OK again!!! Thanks for the great work!! RID: 15030

     6/29/09   4     5     5     4   I've been bringing my dog to Dr.Ubi for a very long time. He is great with my dog, he listens well and a communicates well. However one day I went to Cambie Clinic I was greeted by Dr.Toor. I was unaware of this new Doctor. And honestly I don't think I ever want to see him again. I hope next time the staff will notify me if Dr.Ubi is not going to be there. RID: 13334

Click to report rating    6/10/09   5     5     5     5   I am so happy I took my dogs here! Dr Ubi & staff are great. I praise the clinic for their punctuality. They stick with appointment times & don't over book the clinic. I took my dog in for surgical procedures & was so pleased with the care they provided for her. I am so happy to have found this vet, and can't imagine ever needing to go elsewhere! RID: 13132

Click to report rating    5/5/09   5     5     5     5   Dr Ubi and staff are amazing, I would not take my animals anywhere else (and I have worked in clinics) They routinely go above and beyond to provide care for both your animal and your self. I had to have 3 animals euthanized due to age and medical conditions and this process was made bearable due to their loving care for both of us during the process. Dr Ubi does this work because he LOVES animals! RID: 12705

Click to report rating    1/11/09   5     5     4     4   Dr. Ubi came recommended as a ferret vet, and we couldn't be happier with him. He is clearly familiar with the unique needs of ferrets, and communicates well with their owners. When we had to have our older boy put down, he was so gentle. Both he and his staff were sensitive, friendly and kind. They aren't cheap, but I wouldn't take our fuzzbutts anywhere else. RID: 11163

Click to report rating    10/29/08   1     3     2     1   Horrible vet I think, close friend of mine went there with their dog for a routine surgery and did all the test prior to the surgery to see if he was healthy enough to take the anesthetic. He ended up dying during surgery, gave no explaination and was not recommended to do an autopsy to explore the cause of death. just seemed like they didn't want to explain the cause of death.

Click to report rating    5/17/08   5     5     5     5   Dr. Ubi is the BEST; people are constantly switching over to him because of that! The vet assistants are amazing and genuinely care for your pets. They have very strict standards about sanitizing and sterilizing surgical equipment and table tops. I wouldn't take my dog to any other clinic! He deserves the best :) RID: 8537
