My husband and brother in law took out Shelby Girl here on a Sunday the vet would barely look at her and automatically said she was Poisoned and we needed to bring her back in the morning to get blood work, we brought her in the morning the vet said she looks bad and there no point in doing blood work and to start her on fluid right away. We agreed with the dr seeing were not a veterinarian they said they will keep her for two days and call us Wednesday. I had to call Wednesday to ask how she was they said she’s doing way better and ready to go. We go pick her up and she didn’t look better but they said it was cause she was still on sleep meds. We brought her home and she went down hill within an hour. We called the vet back and were pissed off asking why they said she was ready to go when she wasn’t. They had the nerve to tell us we denied the blood work and she was fine. My brother and I rushed her to a vet in Turlock and the vet said she wasnt poisoned and the had an internal infection possibly from have her babies. But by time we got her there it was to late and we had to put our baby to sleep. Why the heck would I deny blood work if it could save my dog?? I would read reviews before taking you pet here!only reason I put one star is because it wouldn’t let me submit without. Y’all deserve no stars!!
I had the misfortune to find this vet and fall into their money pit scheme they have going. Last year (2016) around October and December they stole $600 from me. They diagnosed my Doberman with an ear infection to which they asked I leave him for a few hours as they were going to put him under to flush his ear. Now I find out the a dog has to be awake to do any flushing of the ears as the dog has to shake its head to flush it out. THEY RIPPED ME OFF!! Twice! This vet needs to be reported so they can cease their shady practices. Run! There are many vets who can give you an honest diagnose and won't overcharge for services not rendered. The worst unconscionable personnel ever! Yes, they are all shady and not caring at all as their advertise. Do your pet and pocketbook a favor and go elsewhere. Zero stars!!!
If I could give them a negative star I most def will my dog died at this vet and they didn't bother calling us until my sister called what kind of crap is that. They couldn't give me a time she pass or no information about her passing. They just said that well the illness she has you never know well we know that and that's why we kept her there so she can come home and well. Not in a box. Oh and all of a sudden they couldn't fine her chart. DO NOT BRING YOUR PET HERE.
This vet serves an important need for after hours and emergencies. However, the front office people are unprofessional and appear uncaring. The exam table had dog hair all over it from the previous visitor. I would definitely gave less stars if it wasn't for the fact that this does fill a gap for emergencies and perhaps slightly lower bills.
The Vet is personable and nice, however after care services apparently non existent. Usually owners are given a list of things to watch for after their pets surgery, a number to call if problem occur. Nothing. There website states they offer a senior discount, not true. "That's from our old website" . Really, I think they should update the site and not deceive seniors. Seemed like they were not concerned or were unaware as to how to best serve their clients and pets. Not what I expected nor used to regarding animal care.
I worked at another vet for years and have dealt with this place over the phone for a number of things; copies of records for patients and bloodwork results for mutual clients. The idiot I talked to on the phone apparently didn't understand that I needed the records faxed ASAP because I had to keep calling back several times until I got frustrated at him and he finally faxed them over. Another time, they couldn't find the patient's bloodwork and that's because they don't enter the patient in until after the results get back???? A friend said her cat died because they didn't weigh her before surgery to get the correct amount of anesthesia, and the cat died as a result of too much. This was told by the tech on the phone as to why she died. Not to mention, the doctor is unprofessional.
I would give this place no stars if I could. They should not be in business. They spayed my parents cat and attached stitches to her intestines; the cat died. Without knowing that this was the vet that did this, I took my lab puppy there to be neutered. They called me as he was waking up and said that one of his "members" was undesended and they wanted to know if I wanted them to put him back under and do an exploratory surgery right then. Umm no. I paid for a pre-surgery exam to see if he was ready, and they assured me that he was. They then gave me a pain prescription for a 140 lb dog, when my boy was only 40 lbs. Good thing I checked before I gave it to him. They also made me repay for the correct dosage when I returned to pick it up.
I know someone who took a rescue group of cats and dogs there to be altered. When they picked the animals up, they were groggy from meds (expected), but hadn't been altered.
There are much better vets in Modesto, so there is no need to take the risk of visiting these quacks.
over the sorry a$$es that work at this american pet hospital my pet is dead!!! all the doctor wanted to do was play on his phone and go to his fancy little car instead of trying to save a life then they want the highest price i have found to take care of the body!! they are the sorriest shi#y people i have ever seen!!! i just pray that they get sick and there doctor treats them the same way that they treat peoples pets and i hope that the out come is the same for them!!! i would not recommend anyone and i mean anyone to go there
My partner and I took in a stray about a month ago. We were referred to APH by a friend of ours. We had looked and felt for a scar to see if she had already been fixed and didn't see or feel one. We took our puppy there today to have her fixed. A couple of hours later I get a call stating she had previously been fixed and could be picked up tonight. When I went to pick her up I asked is there was any way they could cut part of the cost since they didn't actually do the spay there in their office and they told me no. They hadn't checked for scarring, or done x-rays her. Needless to say, I had to pay full price for them to cut my puppy open for no reason!!!

The Girls up front are really nice. My precious Regina was out cold at 6 in the morning. I couldnt find any one else so i called here, Dr showed up at the clinic at 6:30 and saved my baby.
Ive been hooked ever since then. They take great care in taking care of their clients, very proffessional as well.
My husband dropped off our cat at American Pet Hospital because he looked a little under the weather and lost his appetite. They first told us that he had swallowed something, they kept him for testing. When I called the next day they said he had lupis. Then they said he might leukemia. They never called me, I was the one that called every 24 hrs because they kept giving me the run around. When I showed up to see how he was doing the lady up front looked like she was uner the influence of something. They totally ignored us while we stood at the front desk for about 15 minutes. My 2 yr old cat looked like crap and totally scared to be there. They never quite explained why my cat who always seemed so healthy had suddenly got sick and had to be put to sleep. I understand that animals die it just sucks not really having a clue as to why?? What wwere the x-rays & blood work for? nobody ever made me feel liked they cared about my cat or even cared to find out what was really wrong with him. A cheap price is not always a good deal.

Last month my dog was attacked by a group of dogs. After trying many vets that were all unavailable... I ended up at American Pet Hospital. They acted fast and were very helpful. They explained everything that needed to be done and also they dicussed the cost options. Being someone with a very strict income... they worked with me. They went above and beyond for my dog. They also did more then I was able to pay for.... but they were generous and cared about my dog as much as I do. The staff there were GREAT and they all have huge hearts. I would reccomend this hospital to anyone who considers their pet a family member.

First the staff was rude and fighting with eachother. When i came back to get my dog he was so scared and freaking out. For the next two weeks he was acting sad and afraid. Since then we have taken him to another vet and had no problems. I have herd so many bad stories about this place. If you love your pet dont take the chance of taking them there

I've heard the stories, and ignored them, now my cat is dead due to their mistakes. Now my cat is gone, and I'm very sad that I ignored what I heard about this place. Yes, it took me a few times going there before something like this happened, but just don't let them do this to you. They are suppose to be the experts, and they are not. And it is going to come back and bite them.
I should have NEVER took my cat here, or my other animals. They will got get more more cent from me or the chance to hurt another animal of mine. If you have experienced something bad with them, report them, do what it akes for the justice of the loss of your pet!
