    Do NOT take your pets here! Malisha Serrano killed two of my rabbits consecutively while attempting to neuter. My first rabbit's death was blamed on a rare allergy to the anesthesia used. I believed Serrano and decided it would be safe to take another rabbit there, assuming he was not rarely allergic also. My second rabbit's death was blamed on him choking because of regurgitating food he had eaten earlier that day, after given anesthesia. Rabbits do not need to be fasted before surgery, or at anytime. Later, after talking to other veterinarians and doing my own research, I learned that rabbits cannot regurgitate, period, it is a unique aspect of their anatomy. So not only were two of my babies killed by Serrano, I was also lied to about how the deaths occurred. I suspect that they were over medicated because of Serrano's lack of knowledge about rabbits. I have rabbits again, and I now take them to Southwest Animal Hospital, in Beaverton, Or, to Dr. Burgess (who is very educated and amazing with my rabbits!) and I have three successful spays/neuters. If you have rabbits or other exotics, it is well worth the drive to take them to a vet that you can trust!

    I have only went to this vet because my husband went there when we met. Since then I have taken over taking the animals to the vet. It is ridiculous the pricing, and the cold attitude from the front desk. I had found a new vet and asked to get the records of my dog. Their first question is "Are you going to another vet?" I told them that I was looking and that I would also need her X-Rays. They told me that I could take them, but I had to bring them back. I asked why, since I paid for them. They told me that it is a medical document and that they need them back. I told them OK and took them. Every time I went in there to get a check up on my dog, I didn't walk out of their less than $150.00 at a time. Just for a look over and vaccines. when they did do the"testing" they took her in the back room, and I was not allowed back there with her. I didn't like that so much.So No I would not recommend this vet to anyone. I was recommended to a vet out of Washington and I her this place is wonderful. The prices they quoted are reasonable and affordable. I have a new puppy, she will never walk into the ocean beach vet and I a will never put my old girl threw them again.

    Ever since this clinic was sold to VCA it has turned into a cold nightmare of a place. My dogs are treated like meat and my feelings are never EVER considered. They scoop your beloved pet from your arms and disappear into another room for "treatment". My pets have gotten infected from this place, they're not clean.

    To sum it up. The staff are not connecting with the clients. The pets are not treated well, the prices are outrageous since all the newbie vets have to pay for their college loans. Nobody cares about anything but their next car payment. Boy oh boy is that lot full of expensive cars owned by the vets and staff.

    Look elsewhere for a better vet. I sure will.

    I will never take another animal here again! They almost killed my 2 beloved border collies because of the filth and disease that runs rampant behind closed doors; I ended up spending over $3000.00 at another vet to get them over the disease they contracted while at VCA.
    I also was stupid enough to take my persian cat in for a skin irritation on her neck. Her coat measures 3-6" in length at any given time and they sent my cat home completly bald! They sedated her without my permission and shaved her from head to tail for a small cut on her neck that covered a 1/2" square area; what bothered me the most about that is the fact that my cat also has epilepsy which they were treating her for so they knew she didn't need the added stress! Beware OBAH and their incompetent staff!

    They get you in order that you arrive and are quite friendly they go out of their way to learn your name. Prices are high though but you can get in the same day if you need to.

    The front office staff at this establishment wasn't the greatest. I sat and waited while they helped another client and they never even attempted eye contact. That should be in Customer Service 101. Maybe they need some classes. I wasn't too happy with their greeting.
