Dr. White and his staff are really great. I recently went in there for an exam for my dog and was really surprised. The last Hospital that was here was terrible. It is like night and day now from that terrible place. The girls up front and very kind, and knowledgeable. They actually knew what I was there for, and didn't act annoyed or surprised that I was coming in. My dog immediately greeted them, something she never does at the Vets office. Dr. White was very friendly. thoroughly examined my girly and answered all my questions. I have never felt like my previous vet ever really listened to my little concerns. Seems very knowledgable. I completely agree with what his staff refers to as "preventable maintenance". Exams yearly, bloodwork and all that. Gets expensive, im not going to lie, but worth it if it means I'm not paying thousands to get her better after not paying attention before. Didn't know vaccines are every 3 years now. It was a breath of fresh air hearing his beliefs of well pet maintenance. One technician that was not very perky. Maybe just having a bad day. Guy who came in to get my dog, I'm guessing works as an assistent was very friendly. Very kind to my girl when taking her to the back for her shots she never flinched

I recently switched from dr do motor & was very hesitant with trying a new vet. I took my dog in & I waited for over an hr & a half & was about to leave. Dr. White tried selling me a new flea medication which I did not want. My dog is on a great one already. He looked @ my dog all in about 3 minutes & said he was fine. I had a 2nd appointment for a wellness exam for my cat. This was just a routine check up. They called the day before & told me the cat needs to fast for 12. Hrs because she may need blood work. The cat is 6 yrs old & in perfect health. I gave never heard of making an animal fast before a routine check up. I canceled & switched to dr. Garcia who I love! The ladies up front @ dr. White's office were very friendly.

Dr. White diagnosed dog as having torn ACL in back knee. Opened him up, said there was no tear afterall, must be arthritis or joint problems (keep in mind the dog was about 18 months old), closed him back up, and charged us over $2,000. Went to Arc. Small Animal Hosp for second opinion after our dog wasn't getting better. Dr. Klause said he was convinced he had a torn ACL, so we agreed to another surgery and sure enough, he did tear his ACL. Due to that misdiagnosis, I cannot recommend Dr. White. On another topic, I always got the feeling it was all about the money and the art of the upsell.

I would like to say that with needing to change veterinarians, I have been very satisfied with the care and attention my beloved "babies", all 4 (three cats and a dog), have received from Dr. White and his staff. Previously, i went to another veterinarian care facility, and absolutely adored each and every veterinarian there, but could not, and would NOT, put up with the callous and cocky attitudes of the front desk staff, so I made the very difficult decision to change from that facility I went to for 13 years, to go to Dr. White's practice. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with friendly and welcoming personnel who were not only interested in ME as a person, but also, my beloved menagerie. One of the people who works at the front desk formerly worked at my former veterinarian; this wonderful lady, Danielle, has helped bridged that transition to a new veterinarian but offering a sympathetic and empathetic ear. Next, the professionalism of Dr. White and the on-target clarity of his diagnoses have never once been off base. I appreciate and respect that tremendously. Never once have I been disappointed with the care received. As a medical professional myself, I am a very tough critic, but have been wholey impressed with Dr. White's practice. Although the change initially was very hard, I have never once looked back! My hope and prayer is that Dr. White can have someone relieve him once in a while, but, then again, when you are a truly dedicated professional, that is not a priority. I know from my own experience. Huntington Veterinary Hospital has been an exquisite experience, and a desperately welcome change for me, as well as my beloved "managerie".

Cannot express how much we love bringing our dogs and cat here to see Dr. White and his staff. The first time I walked in the door I was hooked. Not only is the front staff very friendly and attentive but the Hospital itself is impecable. Doesn't even smell like a regular vets office. And above all, Dr. White is great. Very knowledgeable and attentive to my pets needs. Never too busy to answer all of my (many) questions. Get answers everytime to all my issues and if there is something he can't figure out he won't quit until he does. I recommend him HIGHLY to anyone who is seriously about their pets care. My whole family goes there now and I have yet to refer someone who has been displeased.

1st met Dr. White at VCA where he diagnosed our dog with Addison's even before the test (which confirmed his diagnosis). He was very thorough and did not want to over medicate her. After he left VCA another dr started giving her steroids and extra tests, etc. which just made her worse. Once I found him again we went back to him and although his prices are higher, he kept her monthly injections the same price as at VCA. We love the staff and even though our dog still doesn't like vets, she does love to see all the girls when she visits. They all come out and "love" her. We do have pet insurance which I am thankful for, and they are more expensive than other vets but it is worth every penny. I trust him (and all the staff) to take care of Lucky completely. I'm sorry that some have not had good experiences but we've always been happy with each visit.

This is a very good hospital. The prices are sky high but that is my only issue. I have taken my cat there for over a year now and I am happy with the way they treat him. I trust Dr. White and will continue to bring my cat there. I have had some problems in the past with staff billing me wrong, but it got straightened out. Everyone is very nice and they care about the animals. I would consider getting Care Credit vs. pet insurance. You can use it for anything medical including your pet. Being unemployed and financially "broke" right now, I have put all my vet bills on Care Credit. It helps in vet emergencys and care which are quite expensive. I would highly recomend Dr. White.

The doctor is great, the staff wonderful except for a few of the girls up front. The one they call concierge should not have any contact with the clients. My Aunt came home so upset with the way she was talked to by this person. My Aunt will not be back to this place, she has decided to seek another vet. There is another girl that seems to be interested in checking her cell phone. The office manager needs to keep herself covered up.

Dr. White and his staff saved my dogs life and convinced me to stick with the treatment when I was ready to give up. I am thankful to them for that. It is definitely more expensive than other options, though. What really bothered me is that after spending thousands of dollars with them, they would not agree to allowing me to fill my pets' prescriptions online to help me keep my costs down.

For one year I had desperetsly been jumping from vet to vet all over town, in hope to find a vet who could heal my dog from a scratch allergy she had on her skin. After one year of desperate home, I heard about Huntington Vet, so decided to take her in, although I had little hope she would be cured. That was the only Hospital that took care of my baby's skin and now both her and I are soooo grateful. It was also affordable for me. Thank you so much to you. I strongly recommend this vet. They are not only honest, but were able to heal my dog I love.

I have taken my boxer dogs to Dr. White for about 15 years. Dr. White is outstanding as a vet and has exception medical knowledge for diagnosis purposes. I received a Boxer from BRLA (Don't adopt from BRLA as most their dogs are sick) and within a couple of days the dog could not walk or eat. We took the dog in to be Euthanized, but upon examination by Dr. White we found he had Myasthenia Gravis, and extremely rare disease, the sister to Lou Gehrig's disease. After working on the proper medication, he is alive and well today, five years later, thanks to Dr. White. Dr. White is a very sensitive and excellent doctor.

Those who have had bad luck, it is unfortunate, But you can't go wrong with Dr. White. Yes, veterinary prices are high today, but that is because he has new state of the art equipment, which most vet's don't have, which gives your animal a much better chance at life. As to itemizing the bill, why not. People holler because they don't know what the charges are for, now they are hollering because they are finding out how much it cost a veterinarian.

There's an old saying in life. "You get what you pay for" and with Dr. White you will get the best treatment available. He is the best.

If you want the humane societies treating your animal, more power to you, not me. I want the best for my dogs and I have always gotten it from Dr. White.

As to the front office help, remember this is a new office for Dr. White and it takes time to get good help and train them. Even though some are new, give them a chance and I am sure you will be very pleased with their service.

I went to Dr. White before when he was with VCA. I have used other vets in the area, and haven't been all that happy so I thought I would give his new hospital a try with two new adopted (and sick) kittens from the Baldwin Park Shelter. I was very impressed with the appearance of the hospital and the friendliness of the staff. I had no wait at all (unlike both VCA and Dr. Domotor's where I ALWAYS have to wait at least 30 minutes). Dr. White was courteous and thorough in his examination. He did not immediately order blood tests (many vets do on kittens) telling me to wait until they are a little older - I appreciated that.I have a lot of experience with cats and dogs (and lots of vets) and felt that his charges were right in line. Me and the kitties will certainly return!

If you don't have a insurance be prepared to get shocked when you receive the bill. The vet is good but the charge is like seeing a human doctor or more. Also, they itemize everything and then adds up to a huge sum.

We have been a loyal client of Dr. Whites for 10 years. He has been so good to our dogs and to our family. We recently lost our dog Sophie due to kidney failure and Dr. White was kind and helpful with the whole sad proccess. We now have a new dog Kali and we will only have Dr. White take care of her as well. The staff is great and we feel lucky to have such a great vet right here in Monrovia.

I just had to comment on Dr White and his staff and let people know how caring they really are! I was saddened that the other people were so bitter with their lives to be so negative to a wonderful facility!! I highly recommend this Dr and hospital! I have taken my dog there for both medical treatment and boarding and have been very happy with the experience!

As a college student working a part time job, I've avoided vets for ever. For the most part, I take my cats to the humane society for their shots, spay/neutering and de-worming. The last time I visited a vet for the same problem I ended up with a $500 bill. I was dreading the visit. Surely I didn't go back to the same guy. The Dr. was amazing. The price was very reasonable. He didn't guilt me into expensive test, which the last guy did (apparently they weren't even necessary). He was friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. This is definitely the place I'll be taking my three cats from now on...

I was surprised to read the other recent reviews. I have absolutely loved my experience with Dr. White and his staff!
My previous Vet was always very condescending when I asked questions about my dogs health. She was very unresponsive and I always was left feeling like I didn't fully understand what was going on.

When my dog recently became very ill, the stress of dealing with such an uncommunicative and negative Vet was unbearable. I did not feel that my dog was in the best of care so I decided to visit Dr. White. I had learned through a previous employee of his that he had taken over this practice and was told that he was great.I have been so pleased with my decision to change.

Dr White is exceptional! I have found him to be extremely compassionate and goes to great lengths to thoroughly explain my pets condition. He actually pays attention to what I am saying and responds, so I know he actually listens. Being able to fully communicate with him has given me great peace of mind.
The facility is very nice and the staff is warm and friendly. Although some of them are still learning the computer and billing procedures, each one goes out of their way to know your pets name and to relate one on one with them.

Costs have been pretty standard, from what I've experienced in the past and he actually did not charge me for something recently out of consideration of the fact I had been in a couple of times this week already as my dogs condition is stabilizing.

At the other Vet, I was never in communication by phone with her, but on two occasion's, without even asking, Dr. White got on the phone to address an issue pertaining to meds.

I have nothing but praise for Dr. White and his staff and would recommend this facility with full confidence to anyone.

New owners of a previously family and budget friendly pet doctor who ran a well organized business wants to give your pet drugs, specialized diets, and their owners 'spin' that for people who don't have their heads up their rumps amounts to, 'I can only speculate about how to treat your pet.' Shameless exploitation of pet owners guised in Spa terms like 'canine wellness.' Avoid this once trusted business. The office staff barely has clue how to assemble the plethora of overlapping charges into a justifiable bill. I witnessed two other clients questioning exorbitant charges. Last time I'll put my loved ones in their hands. Bad news.

I want to assure readers that I am not a former employee of this business. I am also quite happy with my life. I am an educated professional that knows when I am being ripped off. We miss Dr. K. and would never recommend this veterinary practice to friends.

AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COST !!!

In the past, we have visited this place before for some routine check up, which went ok, nothing eventful.

SINCE THE RECENT CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP, IT HAS TURNED INTO A MONEY SUCKING MACHINE~~!!!

After receiving a postcard "Reminder" that our dog is due for 3 vaccination shots, we took her in. This turns out to be the worst experience at a vet ever.

First of all, appointment means nothing here. They WILL make you wait for at least an hour.

Then the nurse told us it's better to do a check up for $45, which sounds reasonable, so we agreed.

Then she says, the shot by themselves are 18 each, which comes out to $54, but since we are having the checkup, she will charge us $ 3 each, so the total becomes 45+3+3+3=$54.

When the Dr. finally got around to look at our dog, he ordered a blood test, for an additional $69, and then promptly declared that the shots are unnecessary.

Anyway, with all the tests and whatever they did to my dog, the bill end up being over $200.

This is for a checkup and a blood test that we did not need, and some weird flea medicine and collard that we did not want.

THEY ARE ROUGH WITH YOUR PET TOO~~!!!

It was ridiculous, just grabbing them like a piece of meat, which broke my wife's heart to a point that I had to step in and told the nurse and the vet to go easy on the poor animal!

I came from Florida and had a wonderful vet whom I as well as all the pets that went to him adored. When I went to this vet I had accupuncture done on my dog for her arthritis (which works wonders), like I used to have done in Orlando, and it didnt go well at all. 1st off her stuck her several times and she yelped, which she has never done, and he also drew blood. I asked him about this and he said it was getting the impurities out. In 3 years she never had that happen. Throughout the treatment she was uncomfortable with the pins in her. Usually they relaxed her. And a couple of pins had to be removed due to them causing her so much discomfort. Also when I left, quite frazzled by this time, I took my dog to pee outside and as she was squatting I noticed they left a pin in her leg. I removed it from her and took it back in and told them what happened. They seemed unconcerned and said sorry. Needless to say I wont go again.

PROS: They attempted to do accupunture
CONS: uncompetent

This is a real good place to take your pets. The workers are ok but the doctors are great and car very much for the animals under there care. They have a number of services including a groomer.

Although Huntington Pets specializes in care of exotic pets, I take my cats there and know that they are in good hands. Dr. Kay and his staff are extremely nice. They are very gentle with the animals and seem to really care. The prices are also very reasonable. The waiting room is cute, decorated with newspaper clippings and drawings/letters from area school children. I believe they offer a vaccination clinic on Thursday evenings, so if you're looking for a good deal on shots, you might want to call them to confirm that.

PROS: Extremely nice staff, short waiting times, reasonable fees
CONS: None!

Only Animal Hospital that I know of in the area that works with Exotic pets (rabbits, ferrets, rats, etc.) Great bedside manor. They understand that people can care for exotic animals as much as a dog or cat.

I've taken 4 dogs, 2 cats, and a snake here since 1995. The staff goes above and beyond in their care of both pet and owners (especially frantic worried owners). The doctors are knowledgeable and openminded to alternative therapies. The facility is clean, neat and well-lit. I'm thrilled to take my pets here, and have no doubts as the quality of care they receive. Some people have generally healthy pets that need little if any medical attention. I've had a few of those, but also a few less fortunate ones, chronic allergies and arthritis included. Still, the staff here have been patient, persistent and flexible in addressing these problems and all of my pets are happy and comfortable.

I've been to many vets in the Duarte/Monrovia/Arcadia area and though many are good, I feel this one is the best! This staff is SUPER invested in the well being of any animal. The walls of the office are adorned with Newspaper clippings of the doctor and children; letters from kids thanking the doctor for taking care of their pets; and pictures of many of the patients and their families. I also got a great deal on my puppies Vaccinations. It's called a puppy package and for about $160 you get all sets of shots and neuter or spay, and a preliminary checkup. We've taken 3 cats and 3 dogs. The best part is that they also do grooming, though not many people know it. If you're looking for a recommendation for a vet, well this is the place to go.

Message from Huntington Veterinary Hosp Inc

For purposes of clarity, I am not a "specialist". The "Message from Huntington..." on the left was written by the insiderpages and wrongly states that I specialize in certain disciplines. I cannot edit that statement. Only someone who is board certified "specializes". We do, however, offer many advanced procedures and nearly 20 years of experience providing among the best care available. The services listed are some of my strengths as a practitioner. If we discover your pet needs something we cannot offer, we will offer to refer you to someone who can.

Thank you,

Dr Gary White
