Having always owned pets, I have many experiences with the local veterinary hospitals in Stockton. A good friend referred me to Dr. Singh at Bear Creek Vet after I became dissatisfied with the care my animals had been receiving. What a blessed day for us all. Dr. Singh and his staff are compassionate and skilled beyond words. My animals always acted as if they were visiting friends, quite unlike anywhere else they had ever been. In addition to the fine "above and beyond" care provided to my cat and Lab, Dr. Singh cared for my mother's little dog, Lily. She was diagnosed with a liver disorder that would normally have taken her life in a short time. Dr. Singh researched and came up with a combination of drugs which allowed Lily to live two additional years. She passed away at over sixteen years old. Dr. Singh will never offer treatment that is not necessary, he will provide gentle, loving care which helps pets to relax. Kristen, Marla and Eunice provide the warmth and genuine concern that is so vital to pet care.
We moved to Stockton almost 4 years ago with two elderly cats and were devastated to have left behind an excellent veterinary group near Philadelphia, Pa. After some inquiries and recommendations, we took our cats to Bear Creek Veterinary and have been pleased ever since. Dr. Singh and his staff know how to work with animals not only medically, but also socially, which was very important to us since one of our cats was ex-feral (frightened of new experiences). They put him at ease and treated him gently. Dr. Singh provided respectful end-of-life care for our 21 year old cat who had been on fluid therapy for 5 years, and gave us excellent advice and care for our other cat (ex-feral) who sadly passed away due to complications from cancer (age 15-17). We now are "taming" two ferals, one which had kittens just after we adopted her. We have also adopted another cat from a friend who lost her home to foreclosure. All our "six new pets" either are--or will be--under the care of Bear Creek Veterinary Hospital. The Pet Portal web-service allows us to ask questions on line and the answers (from Kristen and Dr. Singh) are always thorough, understandable and prompt. The rooms are clean, and the staff members are knowledgable, respectful, and loving to their furry clients. My husband is a health care professional and pharmaceutical researcher. He is very impressed with Dr. Singh--his knowledge of diagnosis, treatment, animal behavior, and his ability to evaluate and communicate options comprehensively. It is reassuring to us, because having no children, our pets are our "kids."

I absolutely cannot say enough good about this place and Dr. Singh. I was somewhat skeptical in the beginning, having been with another Veterinarian for many, many years. But he has COMPLETELY restored my faith in vet's, and has gone above and WAY beyond what any other veterinarian I have ever dealt with has or would. A very kind and compassionate man.
