I used to rave about this vet and Dr.Christian Sharp. I've been coming since 2009 with my golden retriever who was turning 11 this year.

I must have refered a dozen people to him.

As of late he had become less personable with me and my dog- whom he seemd to love before..... His visits seemed rushed and quick.

Since mid December he seemed to be in pain from his joints and not feeling well- I kept pressing him "could he possibly have an infection of some kind" Christian would always say- he has no temp/fever which he said he would have if he had an infection

He kept getting worse and worse- and I kept telling him he seemed like he had a serious headache and his nose was running and his eyes were always watery and full of gunk- he told me it was just allergys .... And he was an old dog with achey stiff joints and dogs his age are usually lethargic and saw nothing out of the ordinary

These visits went on weekly with me pressing him about puting him on an antibiotic to see if he got better- he kept insisting he didnt have an I fiction because he had no temp....

My visit on 1-4- I brought in cash to do a blood test if he needed one.... I told him I would prefer to wait till it was due in April, but was prepared to do it that day if he thought it could pin point something to help with his symptoms which by this time were worse.... He told me to just wait, he did t see the need at this time and to just give him pain meds and benadryl for his allergys

Come 1-12 I rushed him in- he could barely walk- told me again it was just pain from joints and his eyes (which were worse) were just allergys....his temp was also normal. So I insisted he give me an antibiotic and we did blood test.... He upped his pain meds and call mon for results.

He got so bad he stopped eating and couldn't hold his poor sick body up- he kept collapsing. And his eyes were so droopy and sad and filled with watery gunk.

His test results came back he DID HAVE an upper respitory infection... I looked it up and said it was common in dogs but could be fatal if not treated.... That infection took over my dogs body...

And WHY didnt Dr Sharp even consider these symptoms as an infection when I was begging him???

The wonderful vet who came over on Tuesday evening to put him down told me Cody had DRY EYE a condition common in older dogs just like humans, And there were special drops for that .( His eyes must have been burning)

Why didnt Christian know this???

Twice Christian got it wrong with my dog!!! Had he listened to me- his infection could have been treated and my dog wouldn't have suffered a whole month with this infection and the burning his eyes must have felt day In and out!!!

Christians know it all ego took over and my dog paid the price!!!

Shame on you Dr Christian Sharp! :(

This is the best vet I've ever been too. Dr. Sharp explained everything to me in detail. He was very personable and kind. His friendly staff were also very knowledgeable, fast and attentive while I was there. They are also very reasonable as far as price. It was a little bit of a drive for me but it was totally worth it and I will return!! You can put trust in this vet! He knows his stuff!!

Both Dr. Sharps do it right! They both really care about animals and you can tell that right off. I have brought my cat here for 8 years on the recommendation of a friend. I have recently gone to other vets because I moved out of the area but they don't seem to know what they are doing and they overcharge. I am going to drive the extra miles from now on and go back to Dr. Sharp. They are really the only Vets I trust!

I love this vet! There prices are soooo reasonable! I moved from ohio and thought I would never find a quality vet in LA that didnt charge me an arm and a leg!I learned this the hard way when a local vet wanted to give my 3 year old yorkie a double knee replacement for the heck of it! I was appalled since I only went in for a travel certificate! ( my dog is just fine no knee replacement needed) I heard about Dr. Sharp through a friend and they didnt disappoint me! They are so nice and friendly and most importantly you won't be broke when you leave! I take both dogs and my kittie here and it is very enjoyable and worth it!

I have taken my two dogs since they were three months, they are two now. I have always trusted how they assess siutations and I'm a tough one. Im the paranoid dog owner that asks redundant questions just so I can hear it sraight out of the horses mouth! I was reading some interesting point of views on Dr. Sharp Jr. I can see how he can come off officious, and cavalier...I felt like that at first but if you choose to be objective (which I did) I feel he tries to remain very positive and his work is best when he is not sharing the worried-owner vibe with the owner. He is genial and answers your questions--dumb or not. He will smirk and roll his eyes at some and be enthsuiastic about explaining others. The man is human. I have experienced many vets and I have to admit I always revert to thinking, "Dr. Sharp Jr. would have assessed that right away and not sent me home with 5 medications for if-nots and might-be's!" Him and his father are knowledgeable vets and are trusted by far too many people to be criticized and say you will not return again because you didn't like how he rolled his eyes. We are all entitled to our own opinions but bottom line is- your dog was cared for at a reasonable price. They are on point with their care, and don't know any other vets that would pay me $100 bucks to write this review about them! lol Sooo kidding! But they come highly recommended from me to anyone any day.

Over 15 years I have brought my dogs and cats to Dr. Sharp. They answer the phone right away. Bring your pet in. One of my cats almost died. If we had waited. They do the job. When i call them about my cats. They take the time and help me. I would not consider even going to another vet. I'm not a vet. So when I take them there. Its because I have faith in them.

I have been having my pets cared for by Dr. Sharp for 10 years. First I started with the elder and now Dr. Christian Sharp, the son is our vet. They are both caring and very empathetic. I rescued a puppy from the street and when taken to Dr. Sharp he did a thorough examination, gave me meds for the pup and only charged for the meds. They are vets with a caring heart! I would not go anywhere else!!!

Love the office staff and Dr. Christian Sharp. I have found them to be caring and very efficient. My daughter referred me to their office as she has been taking her Boxers to them for years. I drive from Agoura Hills and if you know the 101/134 you know it isn't a pleasant drive no matter what time of day anymore. But it is well worth the it. Stella just had her second surgery with Dr. Christian (infected fatty tissue) last week and he did a wonderful job, she is healing very nicely. The staff called the next day to see how she was doing which I find very comforting. I agree he is on the conservative side but I like that, no unncessary blood panels, xrays, etc just to drive up the bill.

I hardly recognize the Sharp Pet Hospital based on these reviews. Yes, their prices are very reasonable, and their front-desk staff are kind and compassionate. But young Dr. Sharp is certainly not the best vet, in my experience. He's very officious and cold. And while I agree with a previous reviewer that he is "conservative", I think he's sometimes too conservative. There are conditions that my dogs have had that, when I asked him to address, he just waved away, as though my dog's discomfort wasn't worth the effort of treatment. He's cavalier and almost rolls his eyes when doing intake. Not my favorite office. But, again, they're very inexpensive. So if you have very simple needs and don't mind a cold shoulder, this is the place.

These vets (father and son) are amazing! I have been taking my dogs and cats to this facility for over 20 years. I can count on them to always give adequate care with love, experience, and integrity. If they were to ever leave the area, it would be a real "dog day of summer."

Dr. Sharp Jr. took my dog to a room out of my sight and gave her an injection without asking me or telling me that he was going to give it to her. The injection was unneccessary and I never would have approved of it. I had an appointment and was kept waiting for over an hour because they said they only have one room for treating big dogs. When you call the office, no one answers the phone.

I have been going to these guys for over 20 years. They have always been wonderful to me. They greet me by name. The remember past animals that I have had.I was getting worried that Dr James Sharp was getting a bit long in the tooth and may retire soon, but his son stepped up to the challenge. I was so relieved. This is truly a family run place that cares about the animals that they take care of as well as the owners who love them.

I don't recommend Dr. Sharp Jr. I've been going for several years and he's always had a very cold manner. I can deal with that. On my most recent visit, my cat had an infected scratch. He didn't clean the wound, gave her an injection without telling me what he was doing and then told me she would need antibiotics on his way out the door. I had to stop him to make him explain what he had done and what the process was for the meds. We've also been working on reducing her weight. His suggestions in the past have been to reduce her food to 1/8 of a cup a day which is extreme. I got her down to 1/3 of a cup a day and had an incredibly cranky cat 24/7. On this visit, he tells me in a very condescending tone that there are other foods that have 1/3 the calories. We are now using the new food and it's working great. Wish he would have told me sooner! I spoke with a neighbor that is a vet tech at another hospital and she said he was basically giving me all the "cheapest" options. Well, I think he should have laid out the options so I could choose. I can't speak for the elder Dr. Sharp. The office staff is incredibly kind an helpful.

My pets are my children. I don't give them just any food or take them just anywhere for medical care. They go here to the Sharps and have for 14 years. Everyone is amazing- kind, helpful, calming and reassuring when needed. They care! I can always get an appointment even same day, within the hour, they always accommodate. And yes they are very reasonable in pricing, which sure helps, but what you get is excellent care- bottom line. They even sent me a card when my Emily kitty died recently at 14. My sweet canine Gracie was just diagnosed with a heart condition. The care that she is getting alleviates my anxiety. =)
Dr Sharp Jr also cares for bunnies! Which made me even happier because I am always adopting rabbits. My Harvey bunny (kind of a rascally Big white rabbit) was calm and happy during his exam.
I found the Sharps when I called Actors & Others for Animals for a recommendation- They sure were right!
Everyone at the Sharp Pet Hospital have my praise and adoration for an eternity.

I have three rescues~! Talk about a lot to handle. I have been going to them for 3 years,ever since I adopted/fostered these dogs. Both Dr. Sharp Sr./Dr. Sharp Jr. are efficient, compassionate and conservative in their approach to any medical problem. I have always been taken right in (or in the case of an emergency surgery patient coming in) I gladly had waited a half hour.. knowing they would take the care of an emergency action for me.

To the disillusioned customer.Bummer! YOu lose! a standard procedure, not much to talk about drop your dog off. If you had asked any one of the staff, they talk as long as I have unanswered questions or concerns, before they tell me to bring the dog in or once I have dropped my dog off they give me all the attention and compassion I need.
PS $10. difference in a chip. for your time and gas expense, as well as your convenience for making another trip is worth it.. They deserve every penny they charge!

They are really special! This vet is conveniently located near rescue/shelters, and provide services, more than the fair share of medicine for the rescued animals. They are true to the veterinarian cause and creed!

Great work you all, I am so glad I was referred to you!

I have been going to to both Sharps for 8 years now, they have always been great with my animals. The ENTIRE staff is a pleasure to work with and most important they have never price gouged me. My cat had to have a procedure that every vet consult tried to tack on extra fees and tests for hundreds more than Dr. Sharp's office, I have been loyal and happy ever since.

We recently took our puppy to Sharp Pet Hospital for neutering. The intake nurse was very friendly and reassuring. The young vet (I think Sharp's son), was a bit cavalier about the dog's obvious discomfort and squirming at being tied up to the scale. I was a bit surprised because everyone who posts online says they're great. He spent moments with us and rushed out of the room with our puppy. He just wasn't that great.

The nurse told us we should get our dog's chip implanted at the same time, that overall it's cheaper to do so. She said the charge was $35. We agreed. As it turns out, it only costs $25 at the city shelter to get the chip. But when we picked the dog up, the nurse informed us that there was an additional $18 charge on top of the $35 to register the dog's chip. Then the nurse tried to suggest that the city shelter may have that additional charge, too (they don't).

When we left, they didn't give us a cone collar to prevent him from licking his stitches. A couple days later, my friend got his dog neutered for free with the Sam Simon Foundation. Not only did they send him home with a nice flexi-cone (not like the hard plastic ones sold at Petco), but they gave him a small tranquilizer in case the dog was having a hard time with his stitches and cone.

We chose Sharp based largely on online reviews, so I wanted to be sure to post back here. I am giving it a low rating because of the combination of
-- getting a somewhat calloused and rushed handling from the vet,
-- the little "gotcha" on the bill which we complained about but for which they didn't seem to care
-- the lack of the post-surgery care items

I should note that our puppy is in good health. I just don't want to go back there again.

One last note: they did ask us how we found them, and I told them through online reviews. They are only human, and I get a feeling that's not personal enough for them to really give the 100% care. Or maybe they were preoccupied by something else--who knows.

I was a bit surprised because everyone who posts online says they're great. He spent moments with us and rushed out of the room with our puppy. He just wasn't that great.

The nurse told us we should get our dog's chip implanted at the same time, that overall it's cheaper to do so. She said the charge was $35. We agreed. As it turns out, it only costs $25 at the city shelter to get the chip. But when we picked the dog up, the nurse informed us that there was an additional $18 charge on top of the $35 to register the dog's chip. Then the nurse tried to suggest that the city shelter may have that additional charge, too (they don't).

When we left, they didn't give us a cone collar to prevent him from licking his stitches. A couple days later, my friend got his dog neutered for free with the Sam Simon Foundation. Not only did they send him home with a nice flexi-cone (not like the hard plastic ones sold at Petco), but they gave him a small tranquilizer in case the dog was having a hard time with his stitches and cone.

We chose Sharp based largely on online reviews, so I wanted to be sure to post back here. I am giving it a low rating because of the combination of
-- getting a somewhat calloused and rushed handling from the vet,
-- the little "gotcha" on the bill which we complained about but for which they didn't seem to care
-- the lack of the post-surgery care items

I should note that our puppy is in good health. I just don't want to go back there again.

One last note: they did ask us how we found them, and I told them through online reviews. They are only human, and I get a feeling that's not personal enough for them to really give the 100% care. Or maybe they were preoccupied by something else--who knows.

I used Dr. Sharp's services for 4 years. I have since moved out of state. I took many rescue dogs there while working for a non profit but most importantly I wanted my own 3 mutts to go there as well. They are caring, compassionate and very good at what they do. They are fair and honest, never overcharging or charging for anything unnecessary. Their rates are lower than most but their service, facility and staff is excellent.
Melinda and the whole front desk crew are caring and they remember you! Dr. Christian Sharp loved my dogs and when my youngest became ill he did all he could. After she passed, they all were heartbroken as it was there own. I can't say enough about this group.

My animals have been patients of Dr. Sharp's for over 12 years. I have taken cats, birds, and my dog to both James and Christian Sharp. I have always had excellent service from the office staff and both James and Christian Sharp. Services provided include yearly injections, health check-ups, x-rays, tests and surgeries. I have recently moved to San Diego and have not found a veterinarian that offers the same care and attention at a reasonable price. I regularly return to North Hollywood to take my dog for regular boosters and check ups.

Extremely satisfied client!

My dog Callie, has been going to Sharp Pet Hospital, since before I rescued her. Our rescue takes all of their dogs to the Sharps. The small family owned and operated establishment is ALWAYS accommodating. They really care and you can tell because they do not overcharge you, where you feel gouged and taken advantage of. Callie also had surgery there and they really did a stellar job. The staff are sweet and efficient in what they do. I would highly recommend that anyone take their beloved pets to the Sharps!

The father and son team are adorable, professional and everything is reasonably priced. I've taken in 7 dogs in now (I foster) and I've taken in my own dogs as well. The staff is wonderful, friendly and professional as well.

I've taken my rabbits to Christian Sharp (James' son) for about a year now. He is wonderful with them. He also neutered my male rabbit and did an outstanding job. I'm sure he's wonderful with other animals too. It is so hard to find a good rabbit vet, but Christian is great and you get a lot for your money.

I was referred to the Sharp's by a neighbor and I have to say, I just loved everyone in the office!I have an old dog and I like to keep his stress level at a minimum. The nurses were kind and friendly, the Dr's were GREAT! They treated my dog wonderfully and didn't press me into having unnecessary (and costly) extra tests and procedures.I highly recommend this Veternary Practice and I will use only them from now on.

Kind, smart, well-informed father and son vets, plus rare quality- great service with a smile throughout office. Worth the drive if you are not close.

We went here based on other insider reviews, and it was WELL WORTH IT! We met with the younger Dr. Sharp and he was terrific. He listened carefully and did a thorough examination on our dog. He explained treatment options very well and his front desk staff were organized and extremely caring toward our pet. We highly recommend Dr. Sharp and his clinic and we will return again! Of note, while we were waiting for our appt. (very reasonable wait time)an emergency case came in, we were so impressed how the staff jumped in to emergency action, but also kept the regular appointments going without missing a beat. I hope we never have that kind of emergency, but I feel better knowing that our new vet and his team could handle it!

PROS: Fantastic, compassionate staff and fair prices!
CONS:

Have been going to Dr James Sharp with all my pets since 1984. The care and knowledge are superb, the prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is friendly, he (and now his adorable son, Christian) never requires unnecessary testing.
My dog and cat could not be in better hands. Must also praise Mrs Sharp (Sr), the office manager - sweet, smart, caring. They also participate in the feral cat neutering program.

We've been going to Dr. Sharp for almost 15 years and we wouldn't go elsewhere. The Sharp's are like family to us. You can certainly find other good vets out there but you'll never find this vibe! And they are very affordable as well. We lost three of our pets in one year and the real sign of a great vet is how they treat you at that time. And I have never experienced such love and care. Dr. Sharp's wife even sent us cards of condolances. Now the new pets love going there as well!

PROS: Affordable, very friendly, loving people

I have been taking my animals there forever. Dr. Sharp's son is now in business with him. They are both excellent Vets. They take such good care of their patients. I don't know what I would do without him. I have tried other vets, but non have beenas good or reasonable with prices. Their assistants love animals and know how you are feeling about yours and treat you with sych compassion, not like just the person who is going to pay the bill.
