Excellent! Dr. Schwartz found the cause of my cat's illness after 6 years of taking her to other vets! I drove 6 hours there and back because he was recommended by a friend and I'm glad. He was wonderful, explaining everything and letting me stay with my cat during her procedure. I was able to hold her inbetween her tests -- it's amazing they let people in the treatment room. I could oversee everything and my cat was treated well. Dr. Schwartz is way more savvy than anyone else. He even returned my calls on holidays. He's very caring and I'm so glad my cat is finally getting help! If we had gone to him sooner, my cat wouldn't have had irreparable damage caused by 6 years of the wrong treatment at other places. She's in good hands now!

I learned of this clinic from the Los Angeles Rabbit Foundation when I adopted my first rabbit eight years ago. They recommended this place as the go-to vet clinic for rabbit care. I've continued to bring my rabbits here for years now and they have always received top-notch medical attention from Dr. Jasmine Flannigan. I have a senior rabbit struggling with arthritis, (he's going on 10 yrs), and I love how gentle and attentive Jasmine is with him. The staff is super-friendly and I have always been able to see the vet the day I call if it's an emergency. I drive from Hollywood to bring my animals here and I wouldn't trust any other place.

The three stars in my review is for their prices, which are some of the highest I've ever paid for comparable work at other vets. I do believe they could be more competitive in that way, especially given wait times, etc. That said, my experiences with the doctors have been very good. Dr. Costin was great with our cat, who is quite difficult, and helped us clear up an eye problem quickly and accurately. When he had another flareup, Dr. Costin was out of town and Dr. Fuller called us. She was incredibly helpful, and even asked us to call her back and let her know how the cat was doing later, even if we didn't need her.

I appreciate the good medical and boarding care that my dog, Missy, receives when she goes to the Angeles Vista Medical Center. I was in a hurry when dropping off my dog recently and she needed shots prior to boarding. Victor who usually takes care of her while I'm away handled the transaction in a speedy manner so that I could be on time to catch my flight. Dr. Hardy has been taking care of my dog for about 12 years now and I am very please with the service that Missy receives. Thank you!.

I don't know how things were previous to my two years here - but I have had two sick babies and this vet hospital has been nothing but professional, deeply caring and reasonable with my charges. I have compared pricing with a few big ticket items with a few local hospitals and it seems that they all are within 5% of each other. I can't imagine charges vary so much from hospital to hospital. I know I can trust them with my dog and my kitty.

It makes me think other vets have written those bad reviews! Dr. Rhee may not be the least expensive, but he is a great vet. I trust him with all my animals and he's so very kind and compassionate. I don't take my animals anywhere else. He put my dog back together after a vicious attack and there aren't even any scars. He's gentle. I've seen him so very distressed when one of his patients doesn't make it.

The nurses are always so friendly and you know they really do loved animals. When we put our dog down they were so compassionate and before we left they made us a footprint in foam for us and made it into an ornament for us. They saw how upset we were and took action. That meant a lot.

I felt very comfortable leaving my cat with them for the several hours that it took to do the spaying procedure/surgery ( this was a big deal because I don't trust anyone with my cat :)) Theywere friendly and seemed to be animal lovers as well, and for that I am grateful!!

I've used them for years and have never had a problem. This last time I went there because my cat was old and having seizures. They recommended putting him down and I was heartbroken but they were so nice and sweet about it. Will continue using them for all my animals.

We started taking our new rescue kitten here. At first I was hesitant and I thought they weren't thorough enough but it turns out they take their time and want you to come back for follow up exams as too not get the kitten over vaccinated all at once. I like this place!
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
