They are all about treating your friend/pet with as much love and respect as you do. The doctors take their time and always sit on the floor with me until 'Dino' agrees to be examined. They bring a lot of calm to my worry and have successfully brought Dino back to being a healthy strong dog.

Our dog is a rescue that had been abused and had been bitten by another dog before we rescued her. She is very sweet with our family but can be reactive with some people and dogs. The staff and Dr. Johnson were so wonderful with her, being very sweet and gentle in handling her. Our experience was a very positive one and we are so glad that Happy Pets is our new veterinary center.

I was very satisfied with the treatment my little schnauzers received. Dr. Osmundsun and her staff was excellent and I would highly recommend Happy Pets to my friends and family. Thank you again for such a great experience and care. Gretchen, Gretta and Trinka have a new health care center Happy Pets for as long as we live in the area.

This is the most amazing veterinary office I have ever been to. Everyone treats both pets and people with love! Gabi is so helpful and sweet! All my questions and concerns were taken care of. After we lost our Smokee Bear the card we received with personal messages from each one of the staff meant more than words can say! Happy Pets is the BEST veterinary center!!!

We LOVE Happy Pets, they treat our pets like they were their own and have very competitive prices. They even go as far as to call and check up on our dogs a couple of days after their visits to make sure they are getting better. We can't thank Happy Pets enough for showing our pets the kindness and compassion while making them better. We will always choose Happy Pets Veterinary, the whole staff is professional, courteous and very knowledgeable.

Happy Pets is the best place for family pet care in Valencia. The staff is compassionate and caring when it comes to animal care. We have three dogs and wouldn't take them anywhere else. They also seem to have very good prices compared to other veterinarians. If you are a first time pet owner looking for a great veterinary, give them a try :)

We originally took our puppy to Happy Pets based on the reviews. However, it has been unpleasant. On our first visit, our puppy had to have a fecal test, the doctor said she would call us in two days with the results. Several days past, and no call from the doctor my husband called everyday for a week until the doctor finally called us back almost a week and a half after she promised. It turns out our puppy was in need of anti-biotics. On our second visit, the girl at the front desk had scheduled us an appt for the wrong shot which would have made our puppy very ill. I would not recommend Happy Pets!

Dr. Ronchetto & staff were wonderful during Tobey's illness. He was here everyday for 5 days. The staff was very kind & patient. They took time to answer all my questions & concerns. Tobey was happy too! He was excited to come back for his check up. I highly recommend Happy Pets to all my friends.

All of a sudden my 9 year old cat could not keep his balance and kept falling over. I just moved to the area and did not have a vet yet so I checked on line and called Happy Pets. They said their schedule was full but once I explained what was going on they had me come in. I figured he had a stroke but they said he did not have all the signs. Dr. Ronchetta was very pleasant, explained everything and answered all my questions patiently.They said it could be a inner ear infection and sent me home with meds. I appreciate that they didn't rip me off and charge me for unnecessary, expensive tests. Which if they said I needed them I would do anything for my baby. They were professional, honest and reasonably priced. We just found our new vet!!

I love this veterinary office! I have been bringing all 4 of my pets (2 dogs and 2 cats, all rescues!) since they opened and I have never had an unpleasant visit. The entire staff is very friendly and knowledgable, you can tell they really love what they do! Dr. Vega is wonderful, and offers both traditional and eastern medicine, one of my pets needed acupuncture and chiropractic and it worked wonders! Their chiropractor, Dr. Langford, is great and has a way with the animals. They also have a relief vet, Dr. Hershbein, that comes in when Dr. Vega is away. She is incredible! My 18 year old cat used to hate the vet, but when she met Dr. H, she loved her!! Even though I hate when my pet's get sick, Happy Pets makes the ordeal just a little bit easier for all of us! Their hospital is clean, and their prices are reasonable compared to some other hospitals in Santa Clarita. I've made many visits to Happy Pets, and my pets are always happy to go there! I wouldn't recommend any other place!

Business Response:

Backwards logic Uh, let me see... they were booked up. Hmm, they're very popular. Perhaps it is because they are a great veterinary clinic. I would think that if I called a business, any business, and they had so many customers that you had to wait for a chance to get in there that they just might be the best at what they do. For you to give this place one star because they couldn't get you in right away means that you don't really understand the way things work in this world and is not a poor reflection on this business. The great thing about places like Insider Pages is that they let you know what businesses are highly rated (popular) and low rated (avoided). Perhaps you should use this site to find a veterinarian with a One Star rating, since the rest of us will be avoiding sending our business there. They should be able to get you in right away and proceed to give you the type of service that earned them such a low rating!

Michael,

If your veterinarian was so amazing, why would he/she pull the bandages off and pull the hair out? Why would you not trim the hair, or use a solvent to remove the bandages? If you ask me, you're current vet is an idiot!

I am very happy with Dr Vega. I take my dog there once a month for treatment and always gets great service, quick understanding. The staff is great always willing to listen and friendly. Very loving towards my dog. When I went there the first time Chloe was deionized with Addison and it was the staff the went out of their way to help her. She is a happy little dog. I could not have done it without them. They saved my dog's life. And I will always be grateful. HAPPY PETS KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB AND THANK YOU. I will recommend them to anyone.

We saw Dr. Vega when our regular vet was unavailable. I have a service dog that was having trouble with her paws. Dr. Vega fit us into her already tight schedule. She and her staff were very gentle, kind and understanding to my needs. I depend on my dog for everyday assistance and Happy Pets made it possible for me to live my life....happily.

We had a pleasant first experience with Dr. Vega and based on our first visit I recommended Dr. Vega to a few friends and neighbors. I was extremely disappointed with our next office visit. Dr. Vega was not available and our visit was with another veternarian. I have been showing dogs for over 20 years and have owned and handled numerous AKC champions. The vet attempted to suggest several courses of treatment that I thought were completely unnecessary and were clearly an attempt to bill us for services and products we didn't need. She told me that we need to immunize against "the new Parvo strain" which immediately put me on notice that this vet was completely incompetent. Check the internet and you'll find that there isn't any such "new" strain of parvo-dogs that have been fully immunized against parvo aren't at risk. The final straw was when the office called me the next day to confirm our appointment to spay our dog-I informed them that we never made any such appointment-our dog is currently being shown in AKC conformation events and cannot be altered. We won't be returning to this veterinary office again.

My animals although always scared to go to the vet, are very comfortable with Dr. Vega and her staff. I think Dr. Vega seems very gentle and kind and extremely professional and what I really appreciate is that she will combine eastern and western medicine for my animals. I followed Dr. Vega from Seco and I am very happy with this office,

This is a great office and very nice. All the staff takes extra special care of your pets and also gives them lots of love and kisses while they are there. I have never really known my pet to be happy to go to the vet and here they know where we are going and are even happy being inside and almost always just go to the back treatment area to say hello to all the staff and love to get the cookies they give... I couldn't be happier here and am very glad to have found this vet office and definitely would recommend them to all my friends and family that love their pets.

I totally agree with the reviewer below I had the most horrendous experience with Dr Vega as well. When confronted with the poor treatment (not to mention she ripped me off for close to $300), she blamed me!!! I wouldn't buy a can of cat food from this practice let alone have anyone there come near my animals. Stay away...

Dr. Vega is an extremely poor veterinarian. We have known her for several years as she's traveled from one practice to another causing problems just about everywhere she's gone. It is because of our haunting experience with this woman that we've made sure of where her practice is now located because we won't ever allow her the opportunity to see any of our dogs again.

The one and only time that we allowed her to treat one of our dogs was perhaps one of the most painful experiences for our dog in its life. She had recent surgery to remove a mass on her side and we were unable to see our regular vet for a scheduled bandage change. Instead were attented to by Dr. Vega who was dead set against following the instructions of our primary vet and surgeon who have been taking care of her since she was a pup. When we did not agree with Dr. Vega's desire to perform a differing treatment (because what she wanted to do made absolutely no sense to us whatsoever); we insisted that she contact our primary vet to discuss her treatment which she refused to do.

Instead of treating our dog with care during the simple bandaging that was required, we found that she applied adhesive bandages around our dogs entire abdomen without any cotton or other bandaging underneath the adhesive tape except for the surgical area itself. When our regular vet removed the bandaging a few days later, it was an extremely painful experience for the dog and us as we were literally pulling her hair out by the roots in order to get the bandage off. It was brutally painful and we feel that it was done intentionally by Dr. Vega to get back at us because we refused to let her go off half cocked with a treatment our primary vet would not have agreed with anyway. To no ones surprise Dr. Vega was asked to leave the practice a short time later.

Dr. Vega's forte is to blame everyone else for her many mistakes, but never takes responsiblity for her own incompetence. If you truely love and want the very best care for your pet, do not take it anywhere near Dr. Vega.

Dr. Vega is a kind and gentle vet who obviously cares about the animals she treats. Her staff is extremely friendly and helpful. My dog is always happy to go to this office! Although we haven't had to deal with any major problems (luckily!) for the minor problems (such as a skin rash and a clogged sebacious cyst) we have found Dr. Vega to be most heIpful. I cannot really comment on the "alternative" medical treatments as we have not use those services from her.For those who have students going to Valencia High School, this location is SO convenient. Its located in the plaza right across the street from the school. I often make my dogs appointments for 2:30 and then I'm right there for school pick-up at 3:00. What could be easier!

Dr. Vega and staff are doing something really unique here. The hospital is beautiful, warm and inviting. It is like going to someones home rather than your typical sterile veterinary clinic. And like the clinic, the staff at Happy Pets are offering alternatives to the standard "take these two pills and call us later" approach so prevalent in medicine today. I love my pet and almost made the critical mistake of putting her down when I thought she was in pain and was beyond help. Dr. Vega suggested alternative therapies that brought my baby back from the verge and I cannot express enough what this means to me and my family.

I followed Dr. Vega from her previous clinic, Seco Canyon Animal Hospital, which has been taken over by people who seem more interested in lining their pockets than the health of pets. I tell all my friends and neighbors about Dr. Vega and Happy Pets Vet Center, and I would suggest the same to anyone reading this here, to take the pets that they love so much here.

Dr. Vega and staff are doing something really unique here. The hospital is beautiful, warm and inviting. It is like going to someones home rather than your typical sterile veterinary clinic. And like the clinic, the staff at Happy Pets are offering alternatives to the standard "take these two pills and call us later" approach so prevalent in medicine today. I love my pet and almost made the critical mistake of putting her down when I thought she was in pain and was beyond help. Dr. Vega suggested alternative therapies that brought my baby back from the verge and I cannot express enough what this means to me and my family.

What a great experience.. Dr. Vega and staff seem to really care about my cat, while having to leave town I was able to leave my sick cat at the clinic and they did everything possible to help her. Even one of the staff members was willing to take her home during the night to assist feed her. Thank you so much for the great care.
