We were very pleased with the way Chaco was boarded. We were greeted by a friendly busy staff. We were gone 5 nights for a funeral, they took special care to place our little guy with the Cats since he is 10 lbs and lives with our 2 cats. When we picked up Chaco he was bathed, and we requested nail trim; that was taken care of, too. Chaco was really happy and healthy. No charge if you pick up before 12noon! I highly recommend boarding and care with AAA Animal Hospital!
BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! I am posting this review hoping that it will help other pet owners not make the same mistake that we made. Our experience with AAA Animal Hospital in Huntington Beach was nothing short of a nightmare. Please do not make the same mistake we did. Research the reviews on YELP, Google, YP, BBB and other information available on the internet before taking your pet to this horrible place.
My daughter took our beloved 2 yr old kitty Nala to AAA to get her spayed. About three days after the procedure Nala stopped eating, drinking and was lethargic. She took Nala to emergency care and was told that Nala is very sick and has a very high fever. They gave Nala fluids and an antibiotic shot and instructed to take her to our vet. the next day (it was late at night and vet. was closed). The vet. examined her and informed both of us that Nala was likely too far gone to save. Instead of having a fever Nala's temperature was now below normal and she was having trouble breathing on her own. We decided to do blood work and the results indicated a very low WBC. The vet. said that Nala was near death and only explanation was an infection from the spay operation.
It seemed strange to me that a perfectly healthy young cat would die after a routine spay procedure. I did an online search for reviews of AAA and to my horror discovered a long list of negative reviews from pet owners who have had to suffer through experiences similar to ours. Many reviewers reported unsafe and unsanitary conditions, picking up pets that were injured / infected /traumatized while in the care of AAA. Then it got worst. I found a series of documents relating to a City of Costa Mesa investigation of the facility initiated after volunteer workers reported appalling conditions and cruel treatment of animals in their care.
I urge you to not make the same mistake we did. Please read the reviews BEFORE taking your pet to AAA
We can't afford to pay high prices,they are amazing and I won't go anywhere else! Staff is awesome! YES there is a long wait, but well worth it if you cant afford to go anywhere more expensive...besides aren't your pets worth the time?
Seems like a lot of bad reviews, but my family has had nothing but good things from the staff to Dr. B.
They are trying their best and deal with a lot of snobs who are not used to waiting and always getting what they want right away and they still treat the owners and animals with care.
Thank you guys for all that you do for my dogs Bella & Chloe!
They are a total rip off and I have reported them to the ASPCA and PETA for they way they treated my cat. I have been a customer of there since 1998, but since they opened the new building it seems as they are looking to cover the construction cost. I have a Persian cat that requires shaving every year. Since AAA has been in the new building the cost went from 45.00 to 60.00. The quality of service has gone down dramatically.
My cat was always really good about getting groomed until there groomer shaved his nipples off. it took two days for the bleeding to stop. They called me and told me they needed to sedate him because he was trying to bite the groomer. I would bit someone too if they shaved my nipples off.
They drugged him so much that he could barley walk for 3 days. I needed to stay with him so that he would fall and hurt himself. (Please see attached Youtube video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qkFVaaJqfM.
The girls at the desk assured me that it wouldn't happen again the next time I brought him in. They gave him a milder sedative, but when I picked him up his nipples were shaved off again.
I called them yesterday and asked if they have a different groomer from the one they had before, they told me that she was no longer with the company so I decided to bring my cat in again. I was very specific that they needed to insure that they would not shave my cats nipples off or drug him excessively. They told me that it would be 160.00 for the grooming which is outrageous since they are the reason the cat is scared of the clippers. Their response " sorry". I do not recommend them to anyone, and if they are doing this to my cat I'm sure that there are many others that share a similar experience. Personally, I think they should be shut down.
This place gives vague answers, are give misleading information, they give wonderful goodbys if you buy into their scams, and their quoting/pricing practices are shameful. After 3-4 years of taking our pin pin to this business I find this place to be very unprofessional and dishonest. You call them for pricing so you can get an estimate of what the costs may be, then you get the business once your pet is in their hands. Last week a simple ear infection(results from water in the ear) was estimated over the phone to be about $100,once they had my pet their estimate came to almost $500, I reminded the estimator that I called prior to bringing my pet that a ear infection was the case, that the additional fees of $400 was unexceptable, to remove the mumbo jumbo costs, that only a exam, cleaning and antibiotics was needed(I took some vet classes). Wow did I get the cold treatment once I stood up to them and when they brought my pet out to me I saw that his ear was not washed no trace of a cleaning solution used. To not blow my top I took my pet and went home. My pet is 12 years old, day in day out he greats us and family/friends with kindness and affection Im not taking my pet to this place ever again! This place insults my intelligence and short shrifts my pet.

Dr. Beshai has seen my puppy now a few times and I could not be more please with how he treats and takes care of him.
My puppy's been neutered by Dr. Beshai, and has also had to have a foreign object removed after he ate something he was not supposed to. We also go to see the Dr. for routine visits, and he's always so friendly and you can tell he really knows what he's doing.
The facility he works at is so nice and newly-built, and the costs are low, which is nice. Overall a great experience. I couldn't be happier.
