Thanks to Dr. Blankenship and the terrific staff at ASEC for taking great care of Tokyo Bogart (and me) yesterday and last night. He's home now, and doing very well.

Recently my pomeranian (who has ongoing problems with kidney issues and a collapsing trachea) collapsed over and started having a hard time breathing. I rushed to ASEC. The girls at the front desk were amazing and compassionate and whisked

Unfortunately, my male cat got bitten by another cat twice. Both times, I brought him to Animal Surgical & Emergency Center. The care my cat received there was excellent. The whole staff were very skilled and caring people. I hope nothing happens to either of my cats again, but if something, I would not hesitate to bring them back here.

This place is amazing. i took my dog there after he snuck in trash and got a chicken bone. We did not want to take any chances and rushed down to VCA, they ended up having an emergency heart attack and could not take me. They directed me down the street to ASEC which thank god, because it is my new favorite emergency vet. I live in deep in the Hollywood hills and if had an emergency would not trust my dogs in any other emergency hospitals hands. Reasonably priced and made the scary, frustrating and nerve wracked experience almost pleasant! Vets were knowledgable and amazing. God forbid I do ever have to go back, but if I do have an emergency it will be where I am going no matter what.

Pros: Clean, pleasant and great staff

Cons: Wish they accepted non-emergency patients as well!

We took our dog there on an emergency basis (holiday --- only emergency vet open near us). She was unable to urinate and we informed the vet on duty that she has a long history of Urinary Tract Infections. She examined my dog and performed an ultra sound. She stated that my dog had a large mass in the bladder, implied that my dog had bladder cancer, and tried to sell me lots of tests related to the treatment of cancer. I okay'd a biopsy, but refused the other tests. Meanwhile, we're being told about how serious bladder cancer is and that we really should spend another $2000 on tests (we'd already spent $1800 for an exam, a few hours on an iv & draining of the urine.
The next day we moved her to another emergency hospital (she was heavily sedated and looked terrible). That hospital performed another ultra sound --- they found no mass at all (I guess HUGE cancerous masses can disappear all by themselves in 12 hours). They started treating her for a severe UTI and for inflammation. My dog was in the new vet's care for 24 hours and when we picked her up --- she was in wonderful spirits (they saw no need to sedate my dog), and she looked great. BTW, the biopsy proved that the new doctor was correct and the over-priced ASEC doctor was totally wrong (I'm wondering if that's why they held up the test results --- made them look totally incompetent and like a bunch of crooks). We spent hours frantically worried about our dog for nothing.

If you want to spend thousands of dollars on unnecessary tests and be kept in a state of terror over the health of your beloved pet, go to ASEC. Be warned that if you check your animal out, they'll hold up the test results (on tests you've already paid for), for days.

We spent $1800 at ASEC for 12 hours of care and we only spent $288 at the other vet for 24 hours of care + meds + ultrasounds.

Pros: Open 24/7 and they do have surgical specialists

Cons: Way over priced & totally incompetent in their diagnosis of my dog's problems.

My kitty was suffering from a bad hyperthyroid (I didn't even know cats could get that) and we took her here (it was the closest one open) and boy we were impressed with the doctors! The receptionists were a bit cold but other than that it was a great experience and I will use them again in the future should the need arise. They are a bit on the pricy side but worth it, since my kitty is a treasured member of the family.

I came home from a vacation a year ago and found my cat very sickly and weak. Since it was 10 pm, I didn't know where to take her. I had remembered seeing this place when I was driving home from work so I called and they said bring her right in and I rushed her over. We didn't have to wait long; the outcome wasn't so good...I had to put her to sleep, but the staff was so nice and caring, making an awful time bearable. They didn't even charge me for the Euthenasia. I found them very kind and caring.
