If I could give this place a "zero" I would. I should have know by the smell upon enterting that the AVPMC was not up to standard. The medical center is run by a father and his 2 sons. Not sure where they were credentialed but do yourself a favor and avoid this establishment. I have a Bichon/Maltese mix that I brought in for grooming about 3 years ago. Their groomer sliced the dogs face and tail, and they later charged us for the anti-biotic and other treatments necessary for the dog after THEY caused the problems! They are nothing but crooks. I am positive the groomer is an undocumented worker and he looked TERRIFIED when we came back. We decided to sue the establishment which was a mistake because when that didn't work out, we sent photos and a file to the board of CA Vets and even they said over the phone there was nothing they could do because we went to court first, but the photos were horrific and she felt terrible for us. The poor dog was MUTILATED by the vet, and he lied in court and said it was conjunctivitis. Since when did dogs get conjunctivitis on their tail and lips? I hope that old jerk experiences similar pain one day. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do yourself a favor and take your dog somewhere else. Crenshaw Dog & Cat Hospital on Crenshaw and Florence is a much better alternative. These guys are cold, heartless liars and we had to pay for it. AVOID AT ALL COST. There are plenty of vets who do honest work.
