My family had just picked up a free pup and a week later thought he had parvo so we made an appointment and brought him in. Come to find out the puppy did not have parvo, thank goodness, but I felt completely taken advantage of. This was a puppy my family and I had no long-term commitment to and Dr. Dave did in my opinion everything imaginable without discussing the costs first. I went in with good intentions trying to help out a new puppy and instead of leaving feeling relieved my family and I felt completely stressed about what we were going to do to pay our bills. Our bill was over $300 and they do not accept payments. I believe that was an unreasonable amount of money without my prior authorization. To think that people with good hearts and good intentions can readily afford such a cost is unthinkable. My family and I take good care of our pets and would do whatever necessary to help them, but $330 is more than my pocketbook could afford at the time, especially for a puppy that didn??t even have the disease. Shame on you Dr. Dave. Please be sure to discuss costs with the owners prior to doing any procedures and or tests just to make sure you are not creating a great unnecessary burden on them.

I have used this Hospital twice now. My Animals have been treated in a very timely manner, The Drs have been very good in my opinion, the only issue I have is pricing. I feel they are way over priced and you have no options but to pay.
The care outways this strike for me.

Love Dr. Dave! He is the best!!! I had 2 Golden Retreivers that he gave excellent care to in their time of need and was very kind when he had to deliver bad news on their conditions. The male was diagnosed with cancer and passed away only a couple days after and the female had to be put to sleep when she stopped eating 6 months after her brother passed away (she had a tumor in her stomach). Dr. Dave was so respectful and caring during both those troubling times and is a kind-hearted man. I wouldn't take my animals any where else. Now that we have become cat owners Dr. Dave treats them with the same kindness and Dr. Greg did an excellent job in fixing our kitten we rescued. She needed surgery to repair her lower mouth. Thank you so very much AV Animal Hospital!!! You have awonderful staff as well!

AV Animal Hospital, especially Dr. Dave, has provided our pets with exceptional care. They really feel for our pets and for us. We have never had vets who took the time they do to thouroughly analyze and provide the best care for our dogs and cats. I would recommend them to anybody who loves their pets.

Dr. Gallegos loves animals. He shows it as soon as he walks into the room. He even makes us an owners of pets feel very comfortable. He explains clearly the situation so that you can understand what is going on. You would absolutely love to have in on your side.

wish i'd seen this page years ago! i believe Dr. Dave is the only exotic vet in the area, and he takes care of all my house bunnies (7 at this time)! EVERY SINGLE MEMBER of the staff is kind, loving, and willing to learn.
i recently lost my beloved cat, bubba, to complications (maybe) of diabetes. we'd been treating him with insulin for @ 4 years, and all the doctors, assistants and office personnel loved him to death. Dave's always been there with a hug when needed, and gone out of his way with treatment for the cats and the buns.
the cost has NOT been out of line, and even with the worst of news, i love going there. in fact, i'm taking three of the buns there this week, and have no concerns what so ever.

if you need a vet in the antelope valley, these folks ARE THE BEST. they love what they do, their fees are reasonable, and dr. dave is the only exotic vet in the valley (and yes, more animals than you would think are considered exotic.).

also, please reconsider buying bunnies for your children at easter time. they take a lot more effort than you may think, and i'm part of a bunny advocate group that tries to educate people
about much effort buns need in a day to day basis.

I brought my 10 year old Yorkie in for an emergncy visit. She was diagnosed quickly with a uterine infection requiring surgery. I believe she was very close to death at this point. The doctors performed the surgery and saved our little girls life. They were very kind and compasionate and also very truthful in the diagnosis and possible outcome. This was my first experience with this hospital and we will be taking all our pets there in the future. I highly recommend this facility!

I have had problems with my GSD for the past six months. Dr. Leigh was compassionate, and knowledgeable. I ended up having to have the dog put down due to an incurable disease. Dr. Leigh and her staff were accommodating. I cannot say enough good things about Antelope Valley Animal Hospital. Highly recommended!!

This vet clinic sees all types of animals: dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs and the like, but what sets this place apart is Dr. Dave Gantenbein. Dr. Dave has a great 'table-side' manner and is a very skilled vet, but on top of all of this, he specializes in unusual animals: reptiles to be specific. His forte is turtles and he has an expertise with the endangered California Desert Tortoise (which is illegal to collect from the wild, or even to purchase, but can readily be adopted to good homes through tortoise preservation societies since captive tortoises can never be released back to the wild). If you are fortunate enough to own a turtle or a tortoise and it needs medical attention, Dr. Dave is your man!
