They have a very excellent doctor and a very nice staff. I could not have asked for better care for my pet.

Dr. Jordan is the best! It's always a bad thing when you have to take your pet to the vet, but the entire staff here made the experience stress-free and comfortable. They were all loving and professional with our dog. To top it all off, appointments were flexible and the rates were fair and affordable. Thanks.

Ive never liked the term best friend because it always seemed too idealistic and too hard to live up to, but he was mine. He was my best friend and a better friend than I ever could have imagined Id have. He was 20 years old and to ask any more of him would have been selfish. He had already taken care of me for way too long. He died in my arms while my amazing vet sang to him (the gospel song, Like a Lion). It was exactly the kind of goodbye he deserved and I am so grateful I was able to give it to him.

He saved my Oso. I brought Oso as a puppy and now he is 16 years old and for his age he is going great thanks to Dr. Jordan. He has saved my Oso's life so many times. I am grateful that I brought Oso to Melrose. La Brea Animal Hospital. I think Oso has lives like a cat.

You are 1 in a million.

"My favorite tech is Gabi, who has meow conversations with my cat and is incredibly sweet.
The care is a bit pricey but he will allow you to split up payments. He also will board my kitty if I'm out of town."

I have taken my animals to Dr Jordan for many years- three cats, three dogs. I followed the immunization, food, and advice given during that time.My animals lived long and full lives. I find Dr. Jordan to be kind and an understanding caregiver. His prices are competitive and he and his staff are more then generous with their time taken with your pets. I have had nothing but appropriate and wonderful attention paid to my animals.

My beloved seventeen year old cat was diagnosed with cancer last year. Dr. Jordan sent me to a specialist to determine what procedures should be followed to cure/care for her. The specialist explained that there was nothing they could do - she was too old and the cancer had progressed too far. Then they sent her and some medication home with me - she honestly appeared to be at death's door. I told Dr. Jordan that the experience with the specialist clinic was one of the reasons I keep going back to Melrose Animal Hospital. The other clinic did nothing wrong, but Dr. Jordon would NEVER have sent my cat home in her condition. He would have kept her under his care until he determined whether or not the medication was working and if I would be able to care for her effectively. She died in my arms a few months later, but Dr. Jordan was always there when I needed him and I'll never take my cats to any other vet.

I have been bringing my oldest dog, Sydney a basenji mix, since i rescued her at 6 weeks. She is now 4 years old. Dr. Jordan and his staff have been nothing but helpful and caring. Our newest addition, Rocco a 9 month old Rottweiler, was having digestion issues. Dr. Jordan was extremely helpful in finding the cause of these issues and did everything I asked of him to make sure I satisfied the insurance requests for reimbursement.

"Two weeks ago, my 14 year old daschund suffered a massive stroke.
I went to Dr. Jordan in a panic. It was the worst day of my life. I had to put her to sleep.
I was in tears and broken emotionally. He walked me through this terrible period with grace and love. Dr. Edd Jordan is one of the nicest veterinarians I have ever met or used.
Again- I just wanted to thank him for being such a FANTASTIC DOCTOR, AND A 5 STAR HUMAN BEING. I called him the next day to thank him. I appreciate his extreme help, would recommend him to everyone I know."

Dr. Jordan really took the time to listen to all the symptoms and changes my sick cat was going through, not like some vets who seem to think they know your pet's problem before you can tell them anything. He was very nice, and really kept me informed about how my cat was doing throughout his hospitalization, and was easily accessible and helpful when I had questions. Recommended.

What I like about Dr. Jordan is his old school approach to veterinary care. Recently, my puppy had some spots on his skin. Another vet initially checked him out, did a skin scrape but found nothing. Sent us home...well, we wanted a second opinion. Dr. Jordan's knowledge was phenomenal. He immediately suggested what needs to be done. We took him up on his recommendations and we saw the results within a short time. And he's absolutely wonderful with us and our dog. Highly recommended

Although it can be a bit pricey- I'm getting the best care... And, for my puppy- I wouldn't settle for anything less. You can tell, even meeting him for the first time, that he loves animals... And will take great care of your pet... As he does mine. Highly recommended.

I worked an animal hospital that got his patients after seeing him just once. I was in the courtroom when his license was under investigation, which eventually was revoked and, unfortunately, was stayed. Check out the Better Business Bureau for his history. I would never bring an animal to his practice.

Although it has been a few years since I made the mistake of bringing my puppy to Melrose La Brea Animal Hospital for emergency care, my experience was so terrible that my family and I still regularly discuss it to this day, so I felt I should report it. From the looks of it, I was not alone in my negative experience.

I have never, I repeat, NEVER, had a worse experience in my life. I was helping my daughter move into her new apartment in Laurel Canyon. We had a 3-month old Australian Shepherd puppy at the time, so we took him with us rather than leave him alone all day.

Unfortunately, construction on the apartment had only been completed a few days prior, and we didn't notice all the leftover nails lying around the area. Our puppy stepped on one and sliced his paw. He didn't even yelp, but we saw huge drops of blood covering the floor, so we thought we should be safe and take him in to a vet.

Being new to the area, we looked up the closest vet using the yellow pages. I wish we'd had internet access! Dr. Jordan was the most incompetent man I have ever encountered. He put a MUZZLE on a 3-month old puppy because ""you never know what they'll do when they're in pain."" I had been poking, prodding and examining the bloody area for at least 20 minutes and our puppy didn't even notice.

He noticed the muzzle though. He went from calm and sweet to absolutely terrified. Just a quick side-note- I have had several dogs, and none of them, including this one (who is now 3 years old) have EVER needed a muzzle, and I've been to at least 10 other vets. At legitimate veterinary establishments, muzzles are reserved for truly aggressive dogs.

His assistants (he need TWO to hold down a 3-month old, 15 pound puppy) clearly had NO training at all... I'm not exaggerating when I say I think he picks them up at day-labor sites. The entire episode was turning into a circus act, so I stepped in an calmed our puppy down. It was unbelievable (my daughter later said it felt like a prank, or some reality show called ""Punked."") A total joke.

When inspecting the wound, Dr. Jordan couldn't even figure out what was going on. His eyes are so bad he couldn't even see where the blood was coming from, or that there was a HUGE flap of skin that clearly needed to be trimmed off of the paw pad. When he began bandaging the paw, I interjected and suggested we cut off the flap and put some antiseptic ointment on the area first. With a surprised look, he exclaimed, ""Oh, yeah! That would be a good idea.""

Even though I did most of the work and the bill was far too high, we just paid and got out of there as fast as possible.

There was one upside to the whole experience- I learned that if I don't feel comfortable in a doctor's office (pet or human), I have the right to leave at any time. I should have left this place right away. Going here was surreal, to say the least.

DO NOT COME HERE.

When he began bandaging the paw, I interjected and suggested we cut off the flap and put some antiseptic ointment on the area first. With a surprised look, he exclaimed, ""Oh, yeah! That would be a good idea.""

Even though I did most of the work and the bill was far too high, we just paid and got out of there as fast as possible.

There was one upside to the whole experience- I learned that if I don't feel comfortable in a doctor's office (pet or human), I have the right to leave at any time. I should have left this place right away. Going here was surreal, to say the least.

DO NOT COME HERE.

Dr. Jordan took care of my kitty so many times & with so much love & compassion, I am forever grateful.
His staff is sweet, professional, loving & caring.
After years of crappy, high priced, fancy Vets., Dr. Jordan is a down to earth relief!
