Office staff is AWESOME. Our dog got out, was hit by a car and we had no idea where he was. I posted on craigslist and a Good Sam brought him here. Elisha saw the post and contacted us. I will never be able to Thank Elisha enough for this. Everybody at the front desk and ALL the nurses were great. Friendly, caring, understanding and helpful. I did not care for the doctor, she seemed to just not care and was accusatory, but it may have been an off-day for her and it was after closing time as we were in there, so I don't want to throw her under a bus, just trying to be honest. But the staff is wonderful. God Bless you Elisha.

This is a mixed emotions review. I've been taking my dog, which has serious health issues, to these folks for 5 years. The staff is and has always been amazing, polite and helpful. They love my dog and animals generally. That's the good news.
The bad news is that in the last 2 years or so, the attentiveness, quality, and follow-up of vet care (diagnosis, treatment, fulfilling requests) has fallen through the floor. They used to spend considerable time during my visit, provide discounts without my asking, and unfailingly call later to follow up. All of that has disappeared. My dog has crippling issues now, I don't make myself a nuisance with them, but I went in recently to see about a new plan for him., possibly pain meds, etc I was pawned off on a less experienced vet who had zero treatment suggestions, my primary doc said ""hello"" and walked on, the newer vet said she'd call back after consulting with her ""mentor,"" and then never did. Nobody did. I also asked for a written prescription for anti-inflammatories, which she declined to do. The cost of meds here is HIGH, plus I don't want to come in every month when his is a lifelong ailment.
So it's thumbs up for the staff and a big thumbs down for the decline in pet care, diagnosis, and follow up. I've paid thousands upon thousands here over the years, but they've gotten my last dime. Moving on.

I came to know West Flamingo Animal Hospital ten years ago by way of an emergency. My ShihTzu had been recently spayed by another clinic that had done a poor job and the incision split open just as we were going to bed.
In the middle of the night, I was lucky enough to find West Flamingo Animal Hospital, Dr Gross and Dr Yach. We raced to the clinic where they immediately took my puppy as an overnight patient in an attempt to save her life. It was touch and go for days, as they explained that bacteria could enter the open wound and cause death. The doctors showed great concern over my pet's health, all the while with compassion and honesty.
Dr Chris Yach and Dr Gross are excellent diagnosticians and surgeons, and they saved my dog?s life that night. I immediately moved my entire furry family?s records to West Flamingo Animal Hospital.
In the years since, every doctor at West Flamingo Animal Hospital has treated my pets, and I have found all of them to be knowledgeable and on the cutting-edge of the newest technology and ideas. The doctors always return my calls the same day, and always call my home after any procedure to check on my pet. This is a warm and friendly place that treats your pets like they?d treat their own. The doctors and staff are genuine animal lovers - - they put so much `care? into their work. I won?t ever take my pets anywhere else :)
I would recommend Dr. Yach and West Flamingo Animal Hospital - 100% - to all pet owners in the greater Las Vegas and Henderson areas!!

we've been taking all our critters to ""doc yach"" for years now. our dogs are our children, and the doc and his staff have always come through. we spare no expense, ""putting them down"" is just not an option for us, unless it's simply inhumane to keep them going. they never flinch at preforming a surgery or providing additional care, and the treatment has always been great. we've been coming here for over a decade. you can trust them.

My cat became ill suddenly and we were referred to this vet hospital when we checked out of the emergency vet clinic. The vets were very understanding and tried to explain what was wrong with the cat. The only complaints were their computer system kept failing and it was difficult to get updates while the cat was in the hospital. Eventually we had to put the kitty to sleep. The staff was very patient letting us spend our last moments with the cat. They have built in a nice system so you can leave the clinic without having to stop at the desk on the way out- which is nice when you are sad and don't really feel like talking to anyone. They also have excellent hours on nights and weekends.
