I took my cats for their routine annual checkup and vaccinations. Dr. Basta Jr recommended a senior panel so I agreed since they never had one and they were 8 years old. One test came back a bit high on the liver count and he recommended x rays and an ultrasound which all came back negative. He recommended putting her on denosyl which I did. She started to heave and he recommended putting her on laxatone and when that didn't work he said to shave her. I had called this office several times, and he did not bother to return my calls. She continued to heave and I took her back for another liver test. The liver count was a bit high and he said it was ""through the roof"". He looked at her ears and said she was juandiced and didn't even exam her. She had lost a great deal of weight by this time. He told me that he would be telling me when it was her ""time to go"" and I responded I wasn't ready to give up on her yet. He suggested giving her something to stop heaving. I started her on that and she continued to heave. After the poor treatment I received from Dr. Basta Jr., I took my cat to an internal veterinarian and called Pets and Vets to send the liver test results to the internist - which they did not do. It took several calls from the internist to this office to get them to finally release these tests. The internist said that the liver tests were not alarming and suggested giving her antibiotics . I did that and after 3 weeks she started to come around and gaining weight. It has been about 6 months and she has recovered and gained weight and is her normal self. She is still on the denosyl and a little of the anti heave medication. Had I kept going to P&V she surely would have died. Dr. Basta is rude and unprofessional and didn't explore all available courses of treatment as the internist did and was wonderful. I spent a lot of money with Dr. Basta Jr. and almost had a dead cat. If you love your pet don't take it there.

I have a Chocolate Lab and she had ""smelly"" feet. We love Hershey and she sleeps with our daughter. I was given a lot of advice from several different vets, but only Amgad Basta, D.V.M. could help us. Hershey was given special wipes and cleansing lotion for her paws, and she has resumed sleeping with our daughter, less the ""smelly"". Thanks Dr. Basta. Hershey thanks you too. I would recommend Dr. Basta\nvery highly!

When I was on vacation in Mexico my Red nose Miniature Pinscher was attacked by a Rottweiler and my pet sitter brought him to Pets and Vets. My little baby was severely injured and needed emergency surgery and I was miles away. Dr. Basta Jr was swift to act and saved his life. Dr. Basta Jr constantly kept me informed of my dog?s medical condition until I could return to Miami. His knowledge, compassion, professionalism and true understanding of the human animal bond made me feel at ease during that very difficult time. The atmosphere at the clinic is very welcoming. His staff is knowledgeable, professional and compassionate and Dr. Basta Jr always takes the time to explain things. I will always be a client and fully entrust Dr. Basta Jr and his staff for all of my pets needs.

We have received nothing but excellent care from both Dr. Basta and the staff here at Kind Animal Hosptal. We have our 3 dogs groomed here, this is where we take them when they are sick and we also have them boarded here when we go out of town. The staff literally knows our dogs by name we are here so often! Thanks all your dedication, you guys are the best!

Dear Sir or Madam,\n\nI am the owner of Kind Animal Hospital in North Miami Beach/Aventura and our office does not have any recollection or documentation of seeing your beloved pet as one of our patients. There are several veterinarians with the last name Basta and I believe you may have our office mistaken with another. Please be so kind to remove this review of our office as we believe it is in error. Thank you so much for your cooperation in advance.

Apparently its a miracle that my dog is even alive according to Dr. Basta! He basically told me that everything I have been doing to care for my pet is wrong. I feed him the wrong food, I feed him at the wrong time of day, I use the wrong collar, and the heartworm medication I use is bad for him. WOW! Thats a lot to say about an animal that he knows nothing about, all in the first 5 minutes. Because of an incident with another dog that goes to Dr. Basta he offered to check out my dog for free. I dont know what his definition of free is but $225 and my dog is covered in iodine and still swollen. I am never going back there again! The one star rating is only because I had to put something, otherwise it would be no star.
