I'm giving them a star just so I can share my experience...�������� I find it important to advise you all!!! Doctor's at Auburn Animal Hospital, located at 3713 Auburn St., Bakersfield, CA 93306 are not educated on the Neapolitan Mastiff Breed. Unfortunately, my family and I realized it too late. We have been taking our Neapolitan Mastiff's for regular check up's and the simply "my mastiff don't feel good". We had noticed our young Neo at around four months was having a difficult time trying to stand, and that's when our short journey began with our little guy. Visit after visit it was always "He's growing too fast, let's change his food" or "He's got inflammation" medication after medication. Our little guy now six months was not improving, but getting worst. Friends adviced us to allow a Doctor down south to take a look at him. The Doctor then diagnosed him with metabolic bone disease, cervical injury, and left leg arthritis, etc. All of this in one visit. Our little guy was so bad, he had to be put down to rest. It's sad to say they call themselves Veterinarian Doctors. They didn't care about our baby! They took advantage of our situation, knowing we would pay for whatever it took to get our boy better!! NOT TRUSTWORTHY OF!! Below are the names of the Doctors our boy was seen by. Dr. Leticia Davidson, Dr. Kristy K. Utt, and Dr. Ann M. Hamilton ... What A Shame !

They gave me a quote on services (Surgery and shots). I paid in full. then they went to do surgery on my dog and it was worse that they thought. So when I picked him up they said it would cost more but they would waive the extra change because it was their fault for the misdiagnosis. But when I returned for shots that we also put on the quote they said because of the surgery costing them so much the money i paid for shots went to the surgery. I then had to come up with $60 on the spot because they told me this after Ithey gave the shots. I was told I couldn't leave with my dog if I didn't pay.i asked if i came back with the quote and receipt would i get my $60 back? She said no. I have since filed a claim with the Better Business Bureau.Also my dog came home after his 30 hour stay hungry and thirsty like I've never seen him before. I can't prove it but i don't think they gave him any water or food and he was there for about 30 hours.

We have agricultural working dogs as well as a couple pets. Dr. Jensen has been helpful and understands how to work with both. Glad to do business here.

They clipper burned my poodle. I had to take her to an emergency vet because her face was so badly burned. Sloppy grooming. Ears weren't even cleaned. I contacted my credit card company and had the $75 grooming fee reversed. Ironically, that's how much the vet visit cost. When I contacted the groomers, they never apologized. NEVER AGAIN.

Never go here!!!! I went because it was close to home... The doctor didn't show no compassion didn't give me no tips advice... Don't go to him if you suspect your dog has parvo.....!!! Or has parvo...

I have been to this veterinary doctor a couple of months back and I was very pleased with everyone's service. I intend to take my dog in every time needed since he is an old dog and I trust the doctor and his staff.

Dr. singh Mahal has cropped the ears of my great dane, awesome results. Staff is very helpful. Very reasonable prices. could have done a better job if the picture of the dog was cropped properly.

San Joaquin Veterinary Hospital
We took several kittens here to be checked out. One had a respiratory infection (we had caught them wild and found homes for them; we also were going to spay and neuter,etc.). The vet said the one kitten would have to be isolated for several days from the others. Of course that made sense. When the vet was asked what the charge would be to administer antibiotics twice a day and board the little one, she said $18/day. But when the front desk person was advised at payment, she, in turn, asked my wife to wait while she "asked the manager." She returned and quoted the outrageous price of $98 a day!! We could've gotten a hotel room for the cat at that price!!! We'll never return to this place. Too bad doc, we have other animals and we've done this several times with stray cats and dogs. You lose and we will tell all our friends.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
