this place is horrible. if your dog came from the shelter i am so sorry they dont care about you or your pet. they were a entire day late with my dog getting spayed. and they told me to come back to get the stitches out well, my dogs stitches were too tight. i know this becauuse i took him to a different vet to get the stitches out. also the stitches were dissolvible stitches so they were just trying to make me pay for a visit to look at the infected job the did. they also gave my do a cone that was too big for him. this wouldnt have been a problem for a big dog my dog is a chihuahua and he tripped over it alot until we got him a new one. this place is in a back of an alley, can you say shady!!! i believe this place is gone now and i can only hope its because of a lawsuit that took all there money. god knows they deserved it. i know i complained to the animal shelter as to were they were sending the pets and how discusting it was.

I have been going to Value Vet for 10 Years. I have several animals and have always followed the instructions given for my animals have never had any problems. The Vet and staff are the best I have every encountered. I will never take my animals to any other hospital. When following the doctors orders everything always works out fine. That person complaining needs to spend more time following instructions and less time doing what ever thay are doing. Value Vet Rocks!!!!

I've been going to Value Vet for 7 years and have always been treated fairly. Sounds like the owner complaining didn't follow post op instructions. I feel for the pet.

Honesty - ONLY $$$ Hungry
Post Op Care - VERY BAD
Price - Not CHEAP, go to regular VET
Love Animals - NOT. They are $$$ Makers
Honesty of Doctors - NO. They look up to Tony and make up stories to charge you more $$$

Episode 1:
Got an animal from shelter. They sent it to Value Vet automatically for Spay/Neuter. Incision was long but only 2 stitches found. One at the each end. The middle section WIDELY OPEN. Wound infected. Went to ER. Spent $150.
Episode 2:
Found tumor. Surgery done. $450 = not cheap! But bad Pre Op care. Remember? Every bandage change $15 - 20 every 3 days to come back. Bad Pre Op instruction given. Infected Wound just like Episode 1. Another ER visit $150. Medication $100
$450 + $60 (bandages) + $150 ER + $100 MED = $760 WOW!! A LOT MORE THAN A GOOD VET WITH GOOD MEDICATON

Bottom line: They love for you to come back with more problems one after another. Surgery is a good opportunity for them to suck you and your pet into more trouble. You see how much additional $$$ I had to spend thinking that it's a vet with a VALUE? YOU ARE DEAD WRONG.

Oh, yeah.

Episode 3: Additional Surgery required for post OP infection. Another $325. HAHAHAHA. Is this a joke??!!?? Well, went for 2nd opinion. Alas, the wound was clean. Doctor told me that the 2nd surgery is NECESSARY and TONY said that the dead tissue MUST BE REMOVED. Went in for 2nd opinion. Wow. The wound was healing beautifully without any dead tissue!!! So, does this mean that they wanted more $$$ for lying about the wound?

Episode 4:
Due to bad Post OP CARE, the tight bandage was causing the 2nd injury to unwounded skin. $100

Overall, at this VET, they NEVER SHOW YOU the wound. You have to believe whatever they tell you. While the pet is being examined, you NEVER SEE what the wound looks like. They basically take the pet into the tiny surgery room. PLEASE DO NOT THINK ABOUT GETTING A GOOD DEAL AT THIS PLACE. THEY WILL GAUGE EVERY PENNY OUT OF YOU. NO MERCY, NO HEART, ONLY MONEY MONEY MONEY.

THIS IS MY PRESENT TO THE PEOPLE THAT DO LOVE THEIR PET. PLEASE DO STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. I AM WELL EXPERIENCED IN THEIR BUSINESS -- I HAVE BEEN BURNED TOO MANY TIMES. I AM AN EXPERT AT THIS PLACE. I HAVE BEEN THEIRE TOO MANY TIMES with MORE PROBLEMS.

Cons: Go in to get rid of problems -- Come out with MORE :-)

Yeah, I do have to agree some of reviewers opinions about the manager (Tony)... He is a little bit cold and distant. When I sent my dog for neutering and he said he would call me... And he never did... this is to compare him to the other female staffs. He is definitely colder. The other female staffs (forgot her name) greeted me with smiles and promptly called me when my cat is ready to pick up. Maybe he is more friendly to regular customers...

I never had the chance to talk with vet so I don't know...

Both my cat and dog are doing ok after neutering but I did add cone and some anesthesia so the total price is not that cheap as I like.

Dr. Sheriff has treated my dog Lucy for 5 years now. Previous to being with Value Vet he treated her at another clinic which was close to my home. Now I drive from Hollywood to Canoga Park just to see him to treat Lucy. All her life she has been sickly with hard to diagnos allergies, viruses and diseases. She has been treated by many other Vets who could not figure out what was wrong. Once finding Dr. Sheriff her life improved drastically! She now is 15 years old and is in better health than she ever was before. Although she is a Senior Dog she is full of life. Recently, a few months ago she got sick with another rare sickness and once again, within a few days, she was back up on her feet, barking and nipping again. I highly recommend Value Vet and Dr. Sheriff for your Pet's needs. He is so knowledgeable and really shows care in there needs. Also the staff takes pride in there work and really takes care......

I just read the negaticve response regarding Tony the Office manager. The client must have been having a bad day! I have known Tony for 8 years. I rescue animals and apprciate all Tony has done for me. He is fair and very honest. I have recommended clients to Value Vet and those I have referred have had a good experience.. I will continue to bring my pets to Value Vet

Pros: Great Staff-Prices-Services and Vet

.

OWNER BEWARE! This vet has lied to us about prices multiple times and the office manager [possible owner] Tony is a compulsive liar. Nice staff, HORRIBLE management.

I was quoted a price of $1.53 per can of prescription dog food on Sunday. They ordered the food and let me know that it was avaiable for pick up on Monday. I called Monday before going for pick up and the office attendant verified that the food was available for pick up. I get to the office to pick up the food, after a 52 minute drive, and they inform me that the food was not in. I spoke with Tony, the supposed owner, and he blames me for not calling to check even though the attendant verfied that I called twice. I reconfirm to him that I indeed called, he's unapologetic and goes about his way. I then call on Tuesday and he confirms it's not in. On Thursday I call and the food has arrived and I confirm w/the receptionist that the price is $1.53 - she agrees. I re-confirm this with Tony and ask him if he would jot those prices down so that their sister company [which is MUCH closer to me] can match those prices. He then says the price has now changed to $2.08 per can. I advise him that I was quoted multiple times, and he responded that they have been understaffed and haven't had time to update their prices, that are obviously very old. I've bought from them for the last 6 months @ the price of $1.53. I then ask him, will he honor that price for the order that I already placed, he agrees to $1.53 per can. I send my husband to pick up this food and he tells my husband he has to charge him $1.93 a can - AND HE COULDN'T RECALL TALKING TO ME LESS THAN 3 HOURS PRIOR! Tony's selling practices are EXTREMELY deceptive and improper. He has done nothing by lie over and over again and when we confont him he can't recall ANYTHING! I've had other issues with them that I've let slide, this is definately the straw that broke my back!

Prior to my being allowed to adopt her, my healthy 8-week-old kitten was brought to Value Vet by the Animal Shelter for spaying with pick up by me the same day. A few days after surgery, she required a second surgery due to a postoperative hernia caused by the spaying. Two days after that, she developed significant swelling at the incision area, which Value Vet said "looked normal and was not cause for concern." At this point, I took my kitten to my usual vet and learned she had a serious abdominal infection, requiring a third surgery. Ten days post adoption, my once healthy kitten is on heavy doses of antibiotics, and frankly, I hope she survives.

In addition to all of this, the experience at Value Vet was unnecessarily traumatic for my kitten. While the staff seemed genuinely warm, the office manager showed very little compassion for the animals: making my kitten jump in fear by slamming shut the steel door of her cage; having me bring her there at 8:30 a.m., only to perform surgery on her 5-hours later; and finally, placing this teeny sick kitten in a cage next to a huge, loudly barking dog. When we left Value Vet, my normally meek and quiet kitten was truly hysterical, flinging herself against the side of her carrier over and over and screaming "OW, OW, OW," the whole way home. It was horrible to witness.

The facility itself is dirty and dusty. While I don't want to be overcharged by a veterinary clinic, I do want to have confidence that my pet is being given compassionate and excellent treatment. I am concerned that she received neither at Value Vet.

Pros: It's cheaper than other vet clinics

Cons: Dirty, poor surgical result

When arriving to Value Vet I didn't know what to expect. Was this hospital going to try to rip me off like past experiences or were they really going care about my animals and there health. The staff thier were very welcoming. Greeting not just myself but my pet as well. .When a business staff brings a enraptured presence foward , it makes a client confortable . I recommand this hospital because I feel they have treated me and others fairly and equal. They also have resonable prices as well.

.

I highly DO NOT RECOMMEND Value Vet in Canoga Park, especially Dr. Reid Moorhead. I had brought my pet to be examined because my she was ill. During this time, I found Dr. Reid Moorhead to be condescending, cold and impatient. He spoke in vet jargon that I did not comprehend. I asked him to explain what he was talking about. He suggested I rephrase my question so he could answer it so I would understand. WHAT!!!? I am concerned about the welfare of my pet and not there to be belittled and demeaned. At times, I felt Dr. Reid Moorhead recommended additional services that were not necessary. Whether they were or not, I was not comfortable with they way he appraoched and suggested it. Dr. Reid Moorhead LACKS EMPATHY towards owners of their pets. I would highly reconsider using Value Vet for their services. On the other hand, the support staff were professional and courteous. I only wished they were the vet and not Dr. Reid Moorhead.

Dr. Feldman has been consistently competent and fair. I've been through a lot of vets who are in it for the money only, and he is definitely not. He is trustworthy, and his rates are better than any vet I've been to. He treats all animals gently and genuinely cares. I especially liked the fact that when he had a client in his waiting room that was slapping his dog with the leash, Dr. Feldman told him to stop hitting the dog and reminded him that "we don't abuse animals or children."

My cat got sick and was vomiting and not eating. Dr Feldman took blood and X-Rays and found that my cat had swallowed a foreign object. Dr Feldman did the surgery right then and removed the forgein object. The day after the surgery I also got a phone call from the Doctor to see how my cat was doing. My cat has fully recovered and doing well. The best part of it was the cost. It only cost me about a third of what would have been charged at any other hospital. Dr Feldman and the staff are absolutely wonderful.

Pros: modern, clean, hi-tech medicine

.

Dr. Feldman's rates are about half of what you'd expect to pay elsewhere at one of the megaclinics.

Also, he is a full-service general practicianer. There is no need to wait for special hour vacination clinic discounts. Vacinations are always inexpensive.

Usually, there is very little waiting time.
