I toke my dog had a cold so I toke it to Cahuenga Pet Hospital for a check up 1st time there. I have been to many different vet's around town but Cahuenga Pet Hospital was the worst experience I have ever had. The vet Lady toke nearly 40min before seeing my dog and the worst part is she performed all of these UN necessary test's and shots that my dog did not need nor did I ask her to do so. I ended up paying over 400 dollars just for taking my dog in for a simple check up. Stay away from this Vet Total Rip OFF !!
If there was a way to give less than one star I would do so. It's the third time I went to this place, the 2 first times were not great but I figured everyone can have off days... But I had to put my cat to sleep today, so first off you'd expect compassion and extra effort from the team to have it as less painful as possible. But no, that's not how you do it at Cahuenga Pet Hospital... I took the appointment on Saturday, and asked for a tranquilizer pill to be picked up on Tuesday (the day before) to allow the cat to feel less stressed in the car on the way there. Tuesday comes... ""you have no appointment with us, but we'll squeeze you in"".... I'm like I call on Saturday to make it... Today comes, we get there at 8:50am, for the appointment at 9am. Lady up front was not super nice but whatever. She asked ""do you want to be present?"" Yes. At 9:15am, we were allowed in the patient room since a big dog was coming in... At 9:30, a nurse came in to ask ""do you want to be present?"" Yes. By this time, my patience is running thin... 9:45am, a nurse comes in to take the cat in the back to get the temperature and weight, but grabbed the cat by the leg before seeing me observing her and then picked her up normally. Came back 3 minutes later... 9:55am, the nurse came back to put on the receptor for the needle.... 10:00am, the vet finally arrived and started injecting right away, I would not have been petting my cat, I would not have had any notice of her leaving... 10:03am, the vet left, I took a moment, to compose myself and saw another nurse come in happy and greeting into the room, just to leave right away, saying ""oh sorry wrong room""...... The vet was professional and my cat left purring so I'm ok but the place is run and holds terrible nurses and helpers. I will not ever go again to this place and would never recommend it.

This was our first visit to the Vet and quite honestly we are both very happy and satisfied with the care we received. We will definitely be coming back. Jack Frost, like any other animal, is not a fan of Vet visits, but you guys made it pain-less which he truly appreciates. He's already getting better with the antibiotics we were given. I couldn't be happier! Thanks guys!
