As of right now they're still adhering to covid-19 protocols and regulations so once you arrive at your appointment you have to drop your pet off. Staff were all wearing masks and were very amicable. Dropped off my dog and walked around the Uptown Whittier area until they called me to let me know my dog had received her treatment and was ready for pick up. Overall positive experience.

They no longer answer calls...calls go straight to the holding background music and are not picked up, they don't return messages (when you can leave a message), voicemail is now always full, they don't forward/fax records over for HOURS if at all. I use to rely on this Vet hospital, it was my go-to but in the past few months, this has been the experience. So disappointing for those that are doing their job there, and seems to be only a very few.

Dr. Dilip, his wife and all the staff really care for our pets. Best pet hospital. Wouldn't take them anywhere else. Queen and Coco say "give them a try".

The staff was incredibly nice! I did have to wait in the car for 2hrs for my dog to recieve a check up but they were really busy so it was understandable. The doctor explained my dog's results well and professionally and prescribed exactly what she needed for her rash, and she's feeling a lot better too! Definitely will come back.

Very good service! They took very good care of my dog. The one tech that helped me was amazing. She was so kind and made me feel at ease. She's been there for years and has always been great. Dr. Agnes was very professional, thorough and kind. Gave me lots of information. They took my dog in at a moments notice when other vets referred me over to expensive emergency partners. Very appreciative for the care.

This was my first time here since I don't live close to this location. I was skeptical at first due to some of the reviews, but those feelings quickly left me. The staff was very kind and helpful. Even when they were unsure about something, they went out of their way to find out to give me the answers I was looking for. The pricing for my visit was fair if not cheaper than what I was expecting or have experienced. The only downside that I can honestly say is that it wasn't easy getting a hold of them through the phone when I was just trying to check in. However, I credit that to the fact that their staff was busy discharging several other pets. I'm definitely coming back here even though it's a drive.

These people have the biggest hearts, we have a paralyzed dog (his name is Axel) and we wouldn't dream of taking him anywhere else. The video you get from the staff is unrivaled. If you want your pets to have the best experience when going to the vet look no further!

My first time going was okay. My puppy had a routine check up. brought him back a second time, to my knowledge everything went okay. i made a 3rd appointment over the phone and after hanging up with whoever i spoke with, she called me right back and told me to take my pup to their sister Hospital because my dog wasn't nice. This honestly hurt my feelings because i know my pup, he doesn't bite and he's harmless he is just paranoid around ppl he does not know. I could not believe she had the nerve to tell me that. When i took him to the sister hospital i asked how was he because we had to wait in our cars also and the Dr said he did really well and was fine.

I have been disappointed with the service that I’ve received. I’ve taken my dog twice and had him x-rayed twice by Dr. Agnes related to a cough he has. I was told he had a bronchial infection and was given anti onion is. He took them and the cough persisted. I took him back and paid For another x-Ray, again given the same protocol-antibiotics. Over a year later, my dog still has the cough. I need a specific medication, but they are always out of what I need. I have to wait and call several times to check on the status. When I call for assistance or questions or medication for my dog, I often don’t receive a call back. I have to call several times and wait on hold for a very long time to get some type of answer (sometimes up to 40 minutes within someone coming on the line to ask how they can assist me no less than 10 times).. I have found it difficult to care for my pet properly due to lack of flexibility, affordability, and availability of medication from this vet. As I’m typing, my dog is still coughing. I went last week and they were out of the medication and I was told they would call me when it was in. The week is almost over and no callback. Another time I brought my dog in with a harness and leash and they returned him with no harness and his leash chewed in half. They handed him to me in the parking lot. They didn’t mention the leash, I just happened to notice. I wouldn’t recommend to a friend or anyone reading this. They may be able to get you in quickly, but I question the thoroughness of care and service for the money I pay.

Waited 3 hrs for my dog to get treated I had to call to ask what was taking so long. They tried adding things to my bill that my dog didn’t need . I hope in the near future the service improves here.

I had a really good experience here, I have a older dog that I'm in denial of (I still see her as a puppy) and I loved that she was treated sweet and gentle and was checked out thoroughly, my next appointment will be with our younger dog who is an aggressive dog and hopefully they'll be able to deal with him the same way, I left a dog hospital that we went to for over 19yrs who went from caring to money making and I'm hoping to make this one our safe stay hospital, thank you for caring more able our fur baby and not our money.

They try and make you think your pet needs things when they really don't was charged almost triple the original amount for things my dog didn't need.. and when I tried to call and cancel the extra stuff they said it was already too late and I had to pay about $400... I think I'll take my dog elsewhere

Terrible service. Covid-19 protocol requires that you call when you are arrive, but they don't answer for 10-15 min. They have a very poor record of call backs.

Our visit today was positive. I took in two dogs, for a first time visit due to the need for vaccinations and a brief exam. As expected, due to Covid 19, waited in the car, while completing paperwork, prior to them being walked in, and was told I could leave once they went in. I did so, and was called to come get them a little over an hour later, for a total time there of 2 hours. Not bad. All staff were kind, and patient both in person and on the phone. I was pleased, and we scheduled another appointment for next week for another pet.

I called all of the nearby animal hospitals for just a basic check up for my pet and their wait times were ridiculous. However, this was the only one that didn’t have a ridiculous wait time and fair prices. Now I take all of my pets there. They provide the best care and are always professional.

Been going here for years and unfortunately they will never get my business again. They took 2 and a half hours to give my pup her first booster when they told my it would take 45 mins. Then I got 4 different excuses from 4 different employees on why they were late one employee had a far out completely different story. Out right disappointed in this business

I have placed a formal complaint with the California Veterinary Medical Board. My dogs were terrified to go in, they would start shaking. I should have known better (in tears). I feel I got bad advice and now my dog is dead. He was 11 1/2-year-old , we could have enjoyed a few more years of him. He had stopped eating the day before, and the day I took him had a little difficulty breathing. Dr. Agnes, recommended blood work and x-rays and we did them. She told us that he had either a fungal infection or cancer, but there was no clear diagnosis. 1. We had taken him less than a year before and blood work had been performed, we did all the tests that were recommended. We were told he was healthy. 2. We live in a hill side, so why didn't they include a fungal test, when they did the blood work. 3. When I took my dog this time I was told to take him to a specialist. I would have taken him immediately, I called the internist immediately, and suggested the action to the hospital, but I was told by Dr. Agnes and the hospital that it was not an emergency. 4. When I called to check on him I had to call over a dozen times until someone picked up. I was under terrible emotional distress while my calls were not being answered. 5. The person who took my dog inside, in times of Covid-19, was not wearing a mask. They allowed their agent to be there without a mask and handle others' pets. 6. Dr. Agnes without a definite diagnosis, seeing he was under stress, suspecting he was anemic, but without his blood work, still prescribed antifungal and an antibacterial medication. After some research it seems that the medication prescribed and administered (if they in fact gave him his medication and not another dog's medication) may have actually harmed him and contributed to his passing. He was prescribed and given (again unless he was given another dog’s medication) ketoconazole, which I found "should be used cautiously in pets with ... low platelet counts, or those that are undergoing stressful events such as serious illness, ... or trauma", and doxycycline, for which I found "serious side effects include ... seizures". Before passing, my dog had a seizure. After he was prescribed and administered medication, over 24 hours after his passing Dr. Agnes informed us that he had anemia. She should have warned me of the risks of giving my dog the medication prescribed. At no point she talked to me about the side effects or risks of the medications she prescribed. And I feel I made the mistake of trusting Dr. Agnes. 7. If Dr. Agnes maintains that my dog was too sick for any treatment to work, then, she should not have prescribed and charged for any of the medications given. Instead she should have referred me to the emergency room of an internist vet or recommended a second opinion. 9. If she maintains that my dog was not as sick as to not be at risk of an adverse reaction to the medication provided, then, how can she explain his passing?, within hours since he visited the hospital. This place is very busy, are they seeing too many pets per day? 10. In one of the conversations, I asked what type of medication ended up being given to my dog. I was told he was given an injection. Dr. Agnes did not initially tell me about an injection. As I inquired I was placed on hold. The receptionist then told me that no injection was given. So now I wonder if my dog was given an injection that he was not supposed get. 11. Upon pick up, I was initially handed a bag with another dog’s medication. I now even wonder if the medication that he was administered while at the Hospital was the medication that was prescribed to him. I feel Dr. Agnes did not dedicate properly handled my dog, by stopping me from taking him to the emergency room, by prescribing him medication that harmed him without warning us of the risks, or by working at a facility that administered him the wrong medication. It stinks in there! I also hope it will be determined whether this place is sanitary and does not pose a danger to their employees and customers.
