Never Again

I have taken my pets here before and even though 1 of the staff members is very rude the Dr. himself is very nice and careing with my pets and he knows what he is doing very professional.
but I will never go there again after taking 1 of my puppies to the vet for his booster shots I was sitting waiting and there was 3 other dogs 2 walking around very cute not disruptive or anything and 1 other poodle who apparently looked very ill and when they were finally called in and the lil girl that was holding him stood up and walked towards the back room the dog was dripping blood the poor baby had parvo and dripped blood across the entire floor and I stood up and told the lady at the front desk that the dog dripped blood and we had to wait about 10 minutes for someone to come out with a dirty dry mop and basically just smeared it across the room and casually left. I was furious as to why they would not clean this up properly, everyone knows that you have to use bleach to kill this deadly virus and they did nothing when it was my turn I walked along the wall to make sure I did not step in the blood and I was mortified to find blood on the weight that they expected me to place my puppy on. This was horrible and I heard the whole conversation when the Dr. told the owners of the dog having parvo and yet not doing anything to clean this mess up. I was so sad to see a dog in such horrible state and now I can never go there not knowing what kind of dogs have been there with what illness and them not being sanitary.I go to the vet thinking they are more aware and are more cautious about virus since so many take different aged pups there to get cured not sick. This happened on 8/29/09

Best & Affordable Veterinary Hospital

I don't mind driving 2 hours from San Diego just to take my dog to this Veterinary Hospital everytime there's medical necessity. Doctor's and Staff are friendly and knows what there doing. Cost are affordable and reasonable than other Vet hospital especially in San Diego and Los Angeles area. I thank my friend who recommended this hospital and I am happy that my dog is back to her good health.
Most people I talk to are satisfied with their service.

If you LOVE your pet

We are unspeakably grateful for the love and attention our dog received while in the care of the Doctor and staff at South Gate Hospital.

They were recomended to us by a friend and we have no regrets. We were a nervous wreck going into this situation but they paid attention to every detail and most importantly gave my husband and I peace of mind. We had immediate updates and progess reports, video of the care she was receiving and were at ease once we left our pup in the hospital.

this hospital was amazing......

this hospital was amazing...
My dog gets such great service and attention here. Every single Dr. and staff member we have encountered is knowledgeable, helpful and caring. Though it is not always a fun experience for my dog, she likes going as much as a human likes to go to a Dr. they love. Love this place and am so grateful for their help and care.

AMAZING! The whole staff is extremely helpful and understanding. I have taken all of my pets here and I have had all my friends and family bring their pets here as well. I moved out of South Gate and still continue to make the drive because of they great care my pets and I receive, they have literally saved my pet's life. The pricing beats any other place, South Gate Dog and Cat Hospital is knowledgeable and inexpensive. I would highly recommend this veterinary hospital to everyone! Thank you Dr. Stewart and your great staff! :)

I would like to write to praise . My dog Lucky had very bad bleeding cysts on the underside of his paw., He was in great pain and licked the area constantly causing it to become worse and worse. Dr. performed laser surgery on Lucky. It was a hard 2 and one half month recovery. We followed his advice to the letter and Lucky is now completely healed and walking well again. I feel very fortunate to have had Dr. Truly as Lucky's vet surgeon. He 100% knows what he is doing and is kind and caring as well.

I really don't know what to think about this place, but this is what I experienced. It was around 8 pm on a Saturday, and I was worried because my cat had been throwing up and looked in pain when he walked. I called the hospital, and I thought it was convenient since I only live a block away. Well, they told me they were closed but they had a doctor on call and told me to meet them at the hospital at 8:25. Dr. Stewart showed up and he seemed really nice and was really friendly to my cat. He told me my cat had a urinary blockage and told me he was glad that I had brought him in because it could have been fatal. He told me he had to operate him, and that my cat would have to stay for about 3-4 days. He did the operation and called me back within the hour letting me know everything went fine and to call back on Monday. I call on Monday and they put some other doctor on the phone. I don't know his name but he had an accent and I couldn't understand most of what he said, but he told me my cat was feeling better. I asked if they will call me when my cat is ready to come home and all he tells me is to call back the next morning. I call the next day and he tells me that my cat is feeling down compared to yesterday. I ask if he will be okay and he tells me there is still a problem and he wanted to do and X-ray on him. I knew something was wrong so I decided that I should go see my cat and see what was going on. Once I got to the hospital they were doing ""treatment"" on him and like not even five minutes later my cat dies. I want to believe that they did the best they could to save my cat, but I really don't think they did. Dr Stewart had given me hope that my cat was going to be okay, because he did not mention that there would still be a possibility that my cat would die. I ended up paying about $1100, and I don't even think they took care of my cat properly. I suggest if you do ever go to this hospital that you check up on your pet because I will not trust these people, and for that matter not any doctor after this experience.
