Whiskers To Tails Cat Hospital
Whiskers and Tails. I brought my cats in to be fixed. Apparently the vet and/or staff did not know they were my pets. They thought the cats were from a wild cat colony. My cats were not given pain medication to go home with like other cats I saw leave after same surgery. Also 4 of them came home with MANGE. The mange started In their eye area where they put lubricant for surgery preparation. An employee by the name of Rosie was rude, disrespectful, and in sensitive. I mentioned to her I had 2 of my cats in the garage so they could not get pregnant. It was around the 4th of July and was over 100 degrees. Rosie responsed by saying "I don't care". I asked if I could speak to the Dr. I was told "no". I told a Spanish staff member what happened she got mad. I told a different staff member her response was "that's your pet"? I said "yes". Then I was able to speak to the Dr privately. As soon as she finished discussing my cats issues. I tried to discuss my experience with Rosie. Our meeting was terminated.

Animal Emergency Clinic of Pasadena
My cat had a ruptured abscess on her rear end. I took her in at 11pm on a Friday night after keeping an eye on the wound for 24 hours. I was seen quickly and the staff was courteous but the nice review stops there. I was charged $168 for absolutely nothing but a referral and some wound flushing solution. I understand if the doctor doesn't know how to fix her but at least cut me some slack on the 10 second exam that took place only to find out that vet didnt have the necessary skill. Waste of time and money. I paid $65 to get her all fixed up in West LA. That's the only good that came from this and I just choose to look at it as paying $168 for the best vet referral ever! VCA West LA. Save time and money and just go there. It's worth it if your pet needs proper care.

Eye Care for Animals
They can careless about your pet's eyes. They only care about that you pay them for everything they recommended at a very steep price. Did not take their time to diagnose my dog's eyes and recommended all kinds of useless things such as a wrong kind of medicines and a dog collar. Definately get your second opinion at a different location. You will see the difference.

Pasadena Pets Veterinary Hospital
I live close by to this Vet.  I called at 5pm and got an answering service.  (They stay open until 6) I explained this was an emergency. My papillon was bitten by another larger dog and the wound was deep and bleeding. The answering service said she would have someone call me right away.  I asked if they took walk-ins for this type of situation. She said yes and they were open until 6.  At 5:15 I decided to jump in my car and head straight there.  My little girl was in shock and crying from pain.  I arrive at 5:25.  I tell the receptionist what happened. She said the docs were with other patients.  However, she would see what she could do.  It is now 5:38. She returned stating they close at 6 and would not be able to see her.  I told her I could wait as this was an emergency.  She said she was sorry they close at 6.  I was in complete and utter shock. Anyone who cares about animals could see my little girl was in dire need of attention.  Guess what, they CLOSE at 6!!! This is the most uncaring clinic I've ever experienced.

Pasadena Pets Veterinary Hospital
This facility seems to be fine for routine care, but they really seem to fall down when it comes to other things. Case in point: if you have a pet that you've just spent hundreds of dollars on to find out that they have cancer and should be humanely euthanized, would you call, expecting a sympathetic ear based on these reviews? What do you get instead? "Oh, we're sorry, we're not taking any new clients right now."  Oh, BTW, so you won't take my pet even though she had an appointment 2 days from now? "No, but we'll go ahead and cancel that appointment." Yeah. Good job. Lots of empathy there.make sure your pets have their flea meds. My indoor cat, who doesn't have fleas, spent a day there for a biopsy and picked some up. Which also happened to carry typhus and knocked me down for two weeks.  So, being responsible and wanting to let them know, in case anyone else has gotten sick, what do I get? Defensiveness, attitude, denial. Good show office staff. Ignore the fake reviews on Yelp

VCA Foothill Veterinary Hospital
Pets? Yep, got em. Foothill has been our go-to vet hospital through thick and thin. Their vets are caring and capable, and with the flexible hours including Saturdays, they accommodate our busy lifestyle. From hosting training classes through puppy needs and geriatric and special needs, I strongly recommend Foothill and the team.

Exotic Animal Care Center
Dr. Sari Kanfer specialize in rabbits. She's gentle and caring. Friendly staff and clean office. Their price keeps going up but it's hard to find rabbit doctors so we still come to her.

Rose City Veterinary Hospital
We were referred by a friend to Dr. La Bounty. When we called his office number it was forwarded to Rose City. We were informed that Dr. La Bounty had retired and that they were now seeing his patients and or taking his calls. We were calling to set-up an appointment to have our pit-bull's ears clipped who was 5 months old in April. We were told by the Rose City receptionist that their schedule was full and she did not yet have the schedule for May and not to worry, pit-bulls could have their ears clipped within the first year. She then took our information and told us she would call us in May and let us know what the schedule was so that we could make our appointment. May came and went and we did not hear back, but we were not concerned because the receptionist said we could do it within the first year. We called again in June, now our pit is 7 months old, and scheduled an appointment for July and paid a $100 deposit. At our appointment on July 3rd we were informed by the vet that our dog was not a good candidate because she was more than 7 months old and that her soft cartilage had already started to form. So, our pit did not get her ears clipped and we were only returned $50 out of our $100 deposit. Our experience with this office obviously was not a good one. Unfortunately, we can't turn back time so make sure you do your research and double check the information given if it is anyone other than the vet!

VCA A Breed Apart Animal Hospital
I have been taking 3 of my dogs here for a couple of years now. Everyone - the receptionists, the techs, and the vets have been very nice and pleasant. I have also gone to TLC in the past, and did not get the same feeling in terms of quality of the vet. I highly recommend this place to anyone.
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
