Yes I would definitely recommend Avalon Animal Hospital. I've been taking my 3 dogs there for the past 9 years and I have to say everytime I go there I always have a great experience. I have nothing bad to say about Dr.Perez or his staff.

Dr. Perez always seems to be pushing for more analysis...perhaps he's just trying to be thorough, but common sense should prevail. We had some tests run on our 21-year-old cat, who was clearly dying of old age. He said her liver enzymes

True what the other reviews say....Dr. Perez is not the most empathetic vet I've ever seen. But he saved my 20-year-old cat's life...delicate surgery and good follow-up treatment.
They ask for the money upfront because this is a poor neighbhoorhood, and they've been burned before...many people used to abandon their pets there after treatment rather than pay their bill.

Pros: competent vet

Cons: money first, pet second

After going to Dr. Perez for 6 years really because of convenience because if close to my home. The last straw was being charged a follow up fee of $30 after paying $522 for a ear infection, medicine and stiches to close a wound that my yorkie had. We went back to have stiches removed and he charged me for checking his ear I should not have been charged for a follow up, I had a poodle for 17 years always took him to ASPCA I was never charged for a follow up and asked around about it and I should not have been charged for a follow up visit. Also he is very distracted asked me about 3 times if he had his vaccines while holding his records in his hands, also always being interrupted for the asst or secretary. He over charges on medicine also don't buy it thought him go to petmeds.
I gave it one star cause you have to rate it otherwise it would have been no stars.

Pros: Near whereI live

Cons: Dr. only cares about money

.

The vet lacked people skills. He showed minimal concern for pet care after 2 visits . My cat suffered from feline lukemia and it was time to make a humane decision, so we decided it was in her best interest. Before the completion of the very difficult procedure I was asked for payment. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. I agree with the other review who stated all they see is dollar signs. If you are looking for a compassionate vet to care for your animal, DO NOT GO THERE. I repeat DO NOT GO THERE.

Pros: short wait time

Cons: not compassionate

.

I took two cats to Avalon for general checkups. Reception was friendly and attending vet asked questions about general health and vaccination history. Appointment was on time and waiting area was a decent size. Spoke to another client in waiting room who had been bringing pets to Avalon for over a decade. I feel comfortable knowing that I have found a dependable vet to care for my cats since I will be in the neighorhood for a long time.

Pros: Convenient hours; nice size waiting room

.

If you want a vet who first introduces himself to you, introduces himself to your pet, who really pays attention to your animal, tries to make friends with it, and is concerned about the welfare of the animal, this is not the place to take your pet. First impression: All the doctor sees is dollar signs. (e.g., I was charged for an emergency visit in the middle of the day even though I had called earlier specifically asking for an appointment. Shady.) Last and lasting impression: This vet is too uptight and angry to be a vet.

Pros: a regular visit is +/- $35, plenty of street parking

Cons: vet's bad attitude; lack of professionalism
