They care about money first. Your pet is really inconsequential. Don't go there.

Took my miniature schnauzer in for a grooming today. When I picked him up he looked better than I expected. His nails trimmed, ears cleaned and his coat is so shiny and clean. I am very happy with their service. It was much cheaper than taking him to a pet store. I also had his vaccines updated while I was there. Will definitely keep taking him back. Very happy.

Owning a pet is a huge responsibility both to the pet and financially. Veterinary can be expensive especially if your pet is sick or hurt without you being prepared. High Desert Animal Care worked with me. I had a huge bill because my pet was hit by a car. It was not easy but what was the most important was the exceptional care that my girl received and the fact that she was nursed back to her old self. She was worth every penny!!

I took my one month old kitten down there. Before they would do anything, they asked if I can even pay for the treatment. I found this very rude. Then when my kitten passed, the assistant quickly said "She passed away." and she bolted from the room. A few minutes later, I found out that my kitten wasn't quite dead and would need to be euthanized. This broke my heart and the vet demanded that I "get a hold of myself" and sign because apparently, I was causing her to suffer.

I paid with check, but they said they needed my ID, which I had left at home. The moment I got home, I received calls asking for my ID so they can get their money. Yes, its a business, but can I have a moment to grieve?

This was a terrible, cruel place. No compassion, no comfort. Heartless.

This place may seem like they are all about animals but when it comes down to it....their all about the money.
I brought my 4 month old puppy to this vet in desperate need of help. With no money (right at that moment) or care credit eligibility.
I then left my dog with them and proceeded to search for any possible ways of payment.
They WOULD NOT start any treatment without any sort of payment...by this point my baby was bleeding internally and vomiting up everything (Parvo)
Then come to find out 5 HOURS LATER they will except Co-lateral.
My puppy died a day later...
And i am left with a 700.00 bill.
I believe that my baby would have survived and still been with me today if treatment would have began way sooner than did.

-Why didn't they let me know about co-lateral in the beginning?
-Why wait 5 hours to help a puppy that is physically and emotionally in pain?
-Why do you need MONEY before the treatment of a young life?

I have been to High Desert many times now, over the course of a couple years. I am always treated politely and with respect. Everyone listens and tries very hard to get answers to any questions I have. The prices are very reasonable. I am very happy with all who work there. Everyone behaves with compassion and professionalism.

I have switched to High Desert in the last couple of years because the other place nearby, after my 8 years of patronage and many, many thousands of dollars, treated me like they didn't know me when I needed a little bit of help. It was truly heart breaking and offensive to me. Their prices were extremely high, as well. I then switched over to High Desert and all I can say is that HIGH DESERT PET HOSPITAL IS SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY.

I have been going here for around 7 years. They do the free health checkups for pets adopted from the pound. They are always able to get me an appointment when I need it, same day usually. I've taken my cat and 2 of my dogs there, and will be going there today for a puppy I just adopted from the pound. Rates are reasonable, no higher than any other vet. As far as I remember they were the cheapest to spay my cat when I had her. Dr. Naditch is great.

We have been using High Desert Animal Care Hospital for the last 12 years for our 3 dogs.They always have same day appointments their prices are fair but some times the nurses can be cranky to your pet ex we had a pit bull that we took for the low cost vaccines located out side. When it was are turn the nurse made a big stink because she had to go to him(maybe 10 feet from the table were the shots were) he was down at the other end of the building. No2 our boxer went in last Sept with a skin problem the nurse pulled him(really pulled hard he was scared) by the leash to the back room to get shots and them came and lectured us be cause he was not neuter and how he can die so and so fourth. In the end I guess their OK.

I had to have my dog put down. These people lost the cremains that I had paid for and then lied to me, stalled me and never checked to see where they were. I was told to call back or they would call me but no one ever checked on it. Then when I got upset they said my dog was there. (I'm sure they meant ashes) and then they said they were checking with the crematory. They charge too much and they're inconsiderate. My dog meant a lot to me and this experience was stressful.

I have been taking my animals to High Desert for over 12 years. I have never had a bad experience, even when I had to put my beloved pets to sleep, the staff was compassionate and caring. The doctors came out and discussed the treatment they were giving my Nela and when the treatment didn't work the doctor was very honest about costs. She had broke her back and the doctor said that they could keep working on her but it would be costly and he didn't think it would help, I really appreciated the honesty and concern for our family. Over the past 12 years they have assisted in helping myself and my family through some really hard times with our pets, now I have some young pets and I will always bring my pets to High Desert. Just to let you know my family is a multitude of races and we have never been treated badly by anyone at High Desert. Thank You High Desert... Lisa Nava-Hough

I have been doing business with this vet since 1994 - they are the best and very compasionate. They had to put my cat down and they were wonderful. No one could be better than Dr. Gay Niditch, she is great. I took my pug there thinking I would have to put her down, the Dr. looked over her chart, said her thyroid levels were just slightly down on the last visit, and did blood work - they put her on synthroid and she's great now. She's 17 and go a new lease on life. Both my dogs are doing well and get seen there. I drive from Rosamond to Palmdale to see them.

this place has no compation at all, i though maybe i went in on a bad day and gave them a second and third chance and each time i was treated bad. find another place to take your pet. if you come to this clinic you'll see the doctor for 3 seconds and be left with more questions, and a huge bill.

I Had a little doxin named max he was very special to our family. He came down with parvo and this hosp took great care of him and us... lived to the great old age of 15. Also not bad with their rates either. Now all my animals go there.
