For all the negative reviews let me ask all of them this one question: When you go to the Human Doctors if you have no Insurance do you NOT have to pa y up front? Or do they say oh don't worry about it we will treat you for free? No they never say that ever. So for all of you who claim that TAH is money hungry let me tell you something Dr. Nave has 15 Animal Hospitals in the Las Vegas Valley and if he were so awful how could he have so many hospitals?

this place just made me sooo mad! i called and asked the lady if she had time to talk and she said okay but hurry.i told her about the problem i was having with my dog that was barlly breathing and just had puppies yesterday and looked like she was gonna die. this all begans after i tried to save a dogs life that someone dumped off on the side of the road, that ended up having pravo and 3 out four of my dogs caught it and died! now i only have the one thats acting like shes dieing also but wasnt sure if it was parvo or if it was the birth taking a toll on her but the lady just keep saying well your gonna have to have 100 dollars 60 for testing and plus the cost of the office visit. its just a shame how people are now a days! even after explaing to her i just lost my job. she just said well maybe you can find someones credit card you can charge but we cant help without a least a 100 dollars! what jerks.

I read the reviews and am amazed. Right now I have an almost 1000 dollar balance for previous care and I have to bring my dog in and the answer was "just bring him in". Great vets in my opinion

Besides the fact that its full of disgusting people with nasty attitudes everybody looks money hungry.. I will never EVER EVER consider here again..

I have be using TAH for over 6 years and they have always been there to help. Dr. Fontes is an amazing doctor recently two of my cats have had liver failure and I had no idea on what or why but Dr. Fontes has been there every step of the way with us going out of his way to call and check up on my babies and he always calls and lets me know how there doing, always answers all of my questions and you can tell he is a good person who really cares about animals now I only trust all of my animals to him. Dr. Fontes even came in on his day off to do the surgery on my dog all I have to say is he and the staff at Tropicana animal hospital are amazing and I would recommend any who really cares if their vet hospital actually cares about there animals to go to TAH!!! You'll always be close to our hearts TAH and thank you so very much!!!

Our doxie has been having a lot of back problems lately. She has several herniated discs and after several emergency trips here, and many office visits, and finally one surgery Roxie is now going to be doing MUCH better. The best part is that throughout the whole thing Dr. McDermott has made sure that he was available to be the one to help us (even emergency night trips and to observe and even breathe for Roxie during the surgery).
I would not have trusted anybody else to be in that situation with my baby and would recommend anyone do there. He is the most amazing and caring vet I have ever had the opportunity to use.

We had called to many many vets when our dog tore her second ACL muscle in her leg. She had this surgery last summer so we knew the cost should be under $2000. We called over a dozen vets who all told us between $2500-$3200. We called TAH, and talked to one of the front office staff who connected us with Dr. Fontes. He spent at least 45 minutes with us on the phone discussing our options and estimated our bill for full surgery (including pre/post op xrays, boarding, medication, etc) to be around $1800.

On the day of surgery he called us when our sweet Nalla was going into surgery, and when she was done with surgery. He spent about 15 minutes on the phone the day after her surgery answering all of my additional questions.

They even were able to offer us in house payment options because we weren't able to get approved for the care credit.

Tropicana Animal Hospital has a great staff, and great vets who aren't more concerned with the money than providing great care for your pets. We adore them and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a new vet.

I've tooking my dog to Tropicana Animal Hospital over a span of 4 years off and on...each time it was a very very pleasent experience, the last time i took him there and the staff rushed me into a room right away and shortly after.. i would say not evening five min's later the doctor came in. My dog was very old (19yrs old) and he gave me my options right away and told me that exactly what he thought. AND I GREATLY APPRECIATE the honestly i recieved. My dog did have to be put to sleep and the hospital held him there until I could afford to pay for his cremation for a span of one month..there are no word to describe how much i appreciate the staff and hospital and I do recommend them to anyone who has a pet and live on that side of town A+ FOR SURE!!!

I am relatively new to Vegas and have had every pet owner's problem of finding that perfect veterinarian. I have two pit bulls, both sweet but sometimes need a little patience. I have been going to Tropicana Animal Hospital for abour 8 months and have made a few visits in that short amount of time. I first saw Dr. Fontes who was excellent and took time to discuss and answer the many questions I had about my dogs. Just recently my pitbull Shadow came down with a horrible skin infection, itching and scratchign and driving me nuts. I saw Dr. Bone and he took so much time to talk to me about causes of the skin problem and recommended not only what was needed to help my baby in the short term but we also talked about diets and what to do to prevent this problem in the future. Both Dr Bone and Fontes are amazing!!!! I tell all my friends to go there. THe front desk staff seems a little stressed but I can imagine why after handling people like me all day :)

But seriously, if you want vets that care about animals and have the knowledge to back it up...go to Tropicana Animal Hospital!!!

I have been taking my animals to Tropicana for years. Always the doctors I have seen have been great. They seem to care so much for the well being of my pets and I trust them completely. I have seen Drs. Brooks, McDermott, and most recently Dr. Bone. Although they all appear to be young their knowledge base is great. I feel comfortable in all their suggestions and would recommend this clinic to anyone!

Great place! Very cheap prices compared to other places in Vegas. I boarded my dogs there and I have had no problems, they came back clean and healthy. Doctors are careing and helpful with any and all of your needs. I had to put down another dog I had and the doctors there were so caring and helpful with the whole process. Highly recommend! The building is a little older but the staff & doctors are 1st class!

i have trusted dr fontes and dr chang with all of my dogs. they have pulled us through some very grim times . and the service and care was top notch the way they contact you and let you know step by step treatments and how your animal is doing. most vets shy away from you calling to see how your pet is here they encourage it.

I moved here to Las Vegas from Colorado and needed a great vet to take care of my kitties, one day my oldest cat a 6 year old Bangel Mix was acting very strange. I sat down on the couch and she came up with me and curled up with me which was odd because she is a loving cat but usually does not sit on people. I reached down to scratch her neck and I felt a golf ball sized lump, I was so scared so I called Tropicana Animal Hospital, they told me to bring her down straight away. I took her down and it was a good thing I did because she had an absess. The doctor went ahead and drained it and sent me home with a healthy kitty. She was upset for a while due to the tube in her neck that we had to clean every day for about 2 weeks but at least she was alive. THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH TROPICANA ANIMAL HOSPITAL!!!!!!!!

When I moved to Las Vegas, I wanted to find THE best Veterinarian for my 7 year old English Mastiff, "Wrath".

A year later, I thought that I had an emergency situation, so I called Tropicana Animal Hospital. Dr. Mathew Brooks was on duty, and called me back immediately. He listened to me explain the situation at hand, and then asked about Wrath's medical history. He answered all of the questions that I had plus more.

The next morning I brought Wrath in to see Dr. Brooks, along with his medical records and x-rays. Dr. Brooks read carefully through all of the records that I had, asking me a lot of questions. He then did an examination and sent us home with a recommendation that indeed helped Wrath.

I had found what I was looking for! Over the next couple of years, Dr. Brooks was very patient and knowledgeable when examining, treating, medicating and operating on Wrath.

He was very informative every time. And always showed pictures, diagrams, charts, ect. to make sure that I comprehended what was happening with my dog.

He is a super guy and veterinarian.

We have used Tropicana exclusively for the past 3 years, and Dr. Brooks is absolutely the best. Very professional and competent, and he actually listens to what you have to say, and explains things in terms that are easy to understand. I only wish more "people" doctors had his approach! Highest recommendations!

I highly recomment Tropicana Animal Hospital. The staff is great but Dr. Brooks is the main reason! Not only is he cute as a button but he made me feel so at ease with my 90 year old doxi (brandy). She needed emergency surgery and I was so worried she might not pull through because of her age. But Dr. Brooks consoled me and told me not to worry and that he would call immediatly after surgery, which he did. He gave me confidence and a big ole SMILE and Brandy's fine! I sure wish he could be my primary Doctor!

He's GREAT and so is his STAFF!
