We have been bringing our 2 dogs and 2 cats to Dr Sandin for 3 years.We moved from LA to Long Beach and it's worth the drive. He is very caring and gentle with our pets. No hidden fees or unecessary services. Even offers home remedy options. Recommended!!!!

I have been taking my dogs and cats to Dr. Sandin at Ave 26 Animal Hospital for 17 years. I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Sandin's care and concern for my pets. If some think of him as abrupt or rude, that is only because he puts the well being of your pet first and foremost and he he takes your pet's care to heart. He has little tolerance for those who do not take proper care of their pets. I have been to many vets over the years and he and his staff are by far the most competant I have found. And, his charges are the most reasonable you will find. When my dog broke her leg he referred me to a specialist, but with that exception, he has cared for my 3 dogs and many cats all their lives and I couldn't be happier with his services. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Sandin.

I recommend this facility. I have two small mixed boy puppies (rescued) requiring neutering and micro chips. My regular vet only makes house calls and doesn??t do surgery. Their vaccinations are complete and have had wellness exams. I shopped around and wanted:1) a hospital/vet that was direct, 2) wouldn??t try to ??up sell? me on unnecessary stuff 3) took appointments 4) was reasonably priced and 5) take the City of LA Neuter $30 coupons.Because I grew up on a ranch I also know that neutering a dog is a simple procedure as I assisted either the farm vet or my dad in neutering assorted animals. Prices quoted from $65 to $297 to neuter a 7 lb. dog, 5 mth dog from 10 different hospitals. All but one did not require a pre surgery exam (which I think is necessary). The more expensive inserted catheters (which I don??t think is necessary) and prescribed pain medication. I selected Avenue 26 Small Animal Hospital. Gateway Animal Hospital in Los Feliz was #2 in case Dr. Sandin made a joke that didn??t make me laugh. I didn??t meet Dr. Sandin (but I was prepared for his directness). Dr. Levitt handled things. Professional and sincere. She had two assistants help in the pre surgery exam which I participated in. The front office person was knowledgeable, friendly and caring. Levitt found ear mites performed a cytology and prescribed medication. Suggested lab work, which I declined (and she may not have professionally agreed with my suggestion, but she respected it). She called me after surgery and said everything went well, discussed the ear mites and gave me a time to pick them up. When I arrived the front office person said she had been back playing with them and noticed different personalities between the two and how cute they were (impressed me that everyone is involved). I also had two LA Animal Dept coupons for $30 off neutering. Avenue 26 accepts these (the more expensive hospital do not). Final bill for two puppies with each of the following: Tresaderm, microchip, pre-surgical exam, neuter, ear cytology $258.00. Best value in town.

DO NOT RECCOMMEND AT ALL!!!!! I had been taking my two dogs there for a little over a year. Everytime, I would dread having to go to that clinic. Dr. Sandin always made me feel uncomfortable. He's quite rude, makes me feel like he has no compassion for my dogs. His sarcastic remarks are not appropriate when I'm taking in my dog for something serious. He told me once, "whos here for a nail trim today? you or the dog?" I can take a joke, but that was not the time. The staff is nice, they dont seem friendly when you first meet them, but they are. One time only I did have the female Doctor see my dog. She was really nice. Made me and my dog feel comfortable. She wasn't pressuring me to buy anything. She was very knowledgable. I wish Dr. Sandin was like that. Honestly I did not want to leave that clinic b/c it was so close to home, but I thought of my dogs & myself. Dr. Sandin would give my dogs their shots in the back room and I didnt like that. At times I felt that my dog didnt even receive a shot. I did not trust Dr. Sandin. A family friend told me about L.A. Central Animal Hospital. I immediately looked online for their reviews and lots of people were pleased. I also noticed avenue 26 small animal hospital didnt have any reviews. Well I decided to take my dog to this new place. OMGSH! I FELL IN LOVE! lol The Doctors give the shots that are needed for your pet, right in front of you. You can even hold your dog while they do it. So many great things about L.A. Central Animal Hospital. Too many to list. I will list it under their review page lol oh also, L.A. Central is only about a mile away from small animal hospital. It's right next to the jack in the box. & their prices are just the same or even less expensive. Just give it a try. I promise you won't regret it! :)

If you are looking for a great Vet and clinic to entrust your precious little pet with, then this is it. I was looking all over LA for a clinic that I felt comfortable with, especially for procedures like surgery etc..., and I finally found this place. I was SO impressed by the sincerity of everyone there - even the receptionists whom I spoke with on the phone! Dr. Sandin was practical and honest, and didn't promise me any fluffy perfect outcomes, but said he would do his very best. And he did. My cats were spayed and even though one of them had a more complicated surgery, he charged only a marginal amount more. I left them there feeling confident that my kitties were in the right hands, and I picked them up feeling even better. Go here for wonderful, caring service and treatment for you and your pet.
