Please dont go here the staff is rude, big time attitude.. Dr. Brooks is always getting ready to make a buck, and I definitely agree with the person who commented on Dr. Brooks. Go to Ladera Pet Clinic, they are nice and the Dr,Hines is very easy to talk too.

I brought my new puppy to Mar Vista and saw Dr. Brooks. The reception staff was terrific. The kindest people in a customer service position that I have came across in years. I was suggested a puppy well package to take care of everyhting. I had a pleasant experience with the Dr., reception, and the tech staff as well.

I took my cat here for almost a year when he became very sick. The reception staff was rude and unfriendly. The vet could not diagnose my cat and rather than tell me she didn't know or recommend a specialist, she kept saying lets try this, and now lets try this. My cat is not a guinea pig and meanwhile she was charging me for a lot of expensive and fruitless tests! In the end my cat got much sicker under her care and I later learned that my cat had an illness that would have been curable had it been caught a year before. I met other patients there who had the same problems. Go some place else.

I have taken my small dogs here at one time or another over a period of eleven years. Although three dogs had very different symptoms, in all cases, years apart, they were all diagnosed with "Pancreatitis" after much costly testing. Symptoms did not resolve at all with the care they recommended. I finally took the dogs to Dr. Alan Schulman at Animal Medical Center, now on Sepulveda. The first dog had impacted bowels and NOT pancreatitis, I was out HUNDREDS of dollars and my dog suffered needlessly for days. In the second case my dog had a bacterial infection as a result of an allergy which Mar Vista left untreated..In the third and last case, my dog was brought here just to have a vaccine and his anals expressed. My dog screamed during the process and it turned out my poor dog had a perforated rectum where they botched a simple grooming procedure. It makes me sad and furious to even THINK about that!!! I am most unhappy with their level of care. I understand it's possible to make a mistake..but THREE times with three dogs? Save yourself the grief and take your dogs to Schulman.. (The only reason I give this Vet 2 stars is for the free care they provide to rescue animals. I only went back here because I adopted a dog from here and I do appreciate that..just won't bring them here for medical care...)

PROS: Does nice rescue work
CONS: they left my dog ill and in one case injured, HIGH bills but misdiagnoses

I took my cat here for his annual shots. The wait is usually between 10-15 minutes before seeing a doctor. The staff is professional. The place is not huge, but they get the job done. They also sell pet products such as food, flea medicine, etc.
The hours are 8 to 6, and they are open weekends including Sunday which is convenient.

I decided to go to this veterinary clinic as I had heard there were female vets there. One of my dogs has a fear of men and I felt this would make things easier on both of us. I found the front desk people to be unfriendly if not cold. I brought my dog in for a rabies shot and to be microchipped. They took her in the back to get the shot, and though they were advised she also needed the microchipping they forgot about it. When I reminded them, the vet looked really irritated when she came out to get the dog again.

I haven't brought my pets here for anyt serious illnesses, but the lack of warmth and friendliness with just the vaccinations and microchipping I do not plan on returning.

Their prices are reasonable.

PROS: Reasonable prices
CONS: Poor attitude on the part of doctors and staff
