m very disappointed, about this place. I brought my dog for a teeth cleaning six moths ago and without telling me, they had removed two front teeth from him. I understand that, but it seems that the employees there don t understand, that

I have been going to AVAH for years. Though I like the other dr.'s, I was thrilled to discover Dr. Venesian. She is super cool. Dr. V. is plenty professional but cares more about your pet than the others do. She is warm and friendly and really related instantly with my pet. She was siiting on the floor with my dog and really getting to know him. She made suggestions to help me help him with his arthritis that in 5 years Dr. J has never suggested to me! She showed me pictures of what normal joints look like and what arthritic joints look like. I feel like I FINALLY understand what my pet is feeling. The othr dr. just gave me medication but defiantely never made me understand why he was presribing it or how it was going to help my dog. More vets need to be like Dr. V and take the time to get to know the pet and EDUCATE their clients!!!

I got my American Staffordshire Terrier's ears cropped in a show crop for the show ring and they looked outstanding. A person I know that shows these kind of dogs (and has seen hundreds of ear crops) said his ears looked very nice. No complaints there. However the downfall is this crop cost at least double what it would have cost getting it somewhere else. Considering the fact I did have a dog's ears cropped somewhere else, and they came out horrible, I suppose when you come here you get what you pay for. Still, I think the prices are a bit unreasonable.

Having lived in the High Desert for over 20 years, I have tried most every vet in the area. Once I found Apple Valley Animal Hospital, I knew that I would never go anywhere else. The staff is caring and the doctors are the best. The follow-up, professionalism, and medical knowledge is beyond compare.

My spouse had been feeding our Siamese real meat for years, and when she started puking up after each meal, we brought her in to see Dr. Jessen. He did a full exam, and then told us to "just keep feeding her like you're doing; there's nothing you can do about it." I had expected him to tell my husband to lay off it and get her on a special kidney failure diet. But no. I asked, 'even the hotdogs, with all those nitrates?' and he actually told me, " it's not going to make any difference." If I'd been stupid enough to actually listen to him, she'd be dead by now, after having suffered a very painful death. Instead, I took her to a vet down the hill, who put her on KD food that day (which immediately stopped her puking) AND gave her meds to slow her disease process, all for LESS than this killer's BAD diagnosis. He knew she was like a child to us, because we told him. I found his behavior not only unprofessional, but unforgiveable. I'll never return here.

Business Response:

Renal disease Trish, we are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your visit with Dr. Jessen. When he saw your kitty in 2004, we did blood work, urinalysis, x-rays and started your pet on KD diet. I'm not sure if we were confused with someone else or if there was a miscommunication on our part. Either way, we appreciate your input. Nutritional care for cats with kidney problems is VERY important - and if there was a miss-step in this process we would love to talk to you to fix the problem. Best regards, Michelle Borchardt - Medical Manager
