Dr. Santos is THE BEST VET IN LOS ANGELES – Brought my little Pom in for her shots and to get a quick follow-up since she was sick last. Dr. Santos is the only Vet i request, she is amazingly sweet and knowledgable as well. Dr. Santos actually sat with my baby for 10 mins after her Bordetella shot massaging her injection site and making sure Pom was happy. Also she recommended some great over-the-counter allergy meds, healthy treats, food etc... Really, this is the best vet I have had in four states! I have two Poms and they just love Dr. Santos and i think the feeling is mutual. I live and work on the West side and drive all the way to Larchmont so my dogs can get treated by Dr. Santos.
HORRIBLE VET – Very rude staff and vet. Would never go back. Way overpriced for the service received. Tell all your friends NOT to use this vet!
Good Vet – I recently purchased and new puppy. My boyfriend and I took our new puppy to Larchmont Animal Clinic, the staff was great, personable and very friendly. The doc walk us through the next few weeks with our new puppy and gave us good suggestion.
Very caring and competent staff – This vet was recommended to me when I moved to LA, and I have been extremely happy with them. They are very gentle with my pets, and have always taken good care of them. I also love that I can get grooming done at the same place as the vet care.
I love this vet! – My cats come here once a year for shots, check-ups, and grooming. The cats seem a little more relaxed here than at other vets, and the lion haircuts they get are absolutely adorable! My cats have never been sick though, so I can't vouch for how this place handles sick pets. But I recommend them for check-ups and haircuts.
Looking for a new vet – I have been going to this vet with my 2 dogs since 2007 and will be switching after three straight visits with issues. I have two dogs and have been treated poorly from top to bottom......starting with the vet to the assistant. Unfortunately one of my dogs now has a chronic bronchitis which has caused her to have an enlarged heart. This was not diagnosed despite many visits with the same issue. Thankfully, diagnostic testing has provided an answer but $400 for an inexpensive antibiotic, inexpensive anti-inflammatory and a SINGLE VIEW Xray. I still cannot call the vet and tell them the issue persists... come in, spend more money....and no longer honoring comparible pricing for flea medications.
I thought the treatment I received may have been in response to my being irritated until they treated my very kind and considerate even husband worse.
best doctors and friendly staff around – Ive been taking my pup there for years and years. I dare say they helped my puppy (no longer a puppy) extend his life span. he is a happy healthy 13 year old chow. I was refered to the clinic by a friend when my dog's old vet brutally handled my less than doctor friendly dog in front of me. At larchmont tI was met with friendly faces everywhere that completely understood how I felt when i said that although my dog isnt extremely people friendly he was still my baby. They were able do all the necessary steps to make me and my dog comfortable and their staff took extra gentle care despite my dog being a little rough around the edges. The doctor's all understand my Buffy's needs and over the years Buffy's come to really like his Dr. Mac. Also Larchmont always always quotes u prices which they tell you are just an approximation and if any other costs come up they tell you. so really you have to sign before they do anything or charge so i must remind the people who seem to complain about a high bill that they at one point signed off on it and they wont do anything you dont want to be done.From the wonderful crew at the front desk to all the doctors and techs behind the scenes it's the only place I'd trust my dog to.
Sweetest Staff Ever!! – I have a Shar-Pei puppy... Well, she's not really a puppy anymore but she's my baby, and I have been taking her to the Larchmont Animal Clinic for the last 4 years. She's usually a very quiet dog and when we go out she simply stays by my side watching and protecting. But the girls (and boy) at Larchmont are so friendly and outgoing that from our first visit they have taken it upon themselves to become my Jia's bestest friends (aside from me of course). Actually, I have to laugh every time that we go in because as soon as the girls at the front see Jia there's always a very high-pitched sound that comes from the reception desk and they all run out to play with her and give her treats (unless they're extremely busy and then they make up for it on our way out).
And that's not all that I have to say about them. I recently found a homeless dog on my way home from work and the poor thing looked so sick and skinny that I put him in my car and drove him to the clinic. I told the staff what happened and they took him in right away. I thought that they might charge me for looking at the pup and getting him back to health but they actually took him in for free and even found a home for him. I called back the next day to ask about the doggie and they said that one of the vet assistants had made some calls and found someone to take the dog in once he was all better. I was really surprised by the compassion that these doctors and staff showed for the poor puppy. And I heard later from them that he was doing great in his new home.
Great job guys! :)
Didn't cure my dog (Twice!) – My Beagador, Ginger, is only 11 months old and has had numerous illnesses since I adopted her, partly due to the incompetence of the vets at the Larchmont Animal Clinic. She first contracted Giardia before I even got her, and they prescribed her the wrong medicine, twice, so she suffered with an intestinal parasite for the first 8 months of her life. Only when I took her to a REAL vet in San Francisco, did she receive proper treatment and get any better. Since then, possibly as a complication of having Giardia for so long, Ginger has developed a laundry list of skin, ear, eye and food allergies. For this, the vets at the clinic prescribed nothing, but instead told us to give her OTC Benedryl and eye drops. They also offered no suggestions for helping her cope with these allergies other than to wipe her down after she went out to try to clean off any allergens. Poor Ginger suffered for a month while I tried to discourage her from chewing her feet and tummy raw unsuccessfully. Finally, when Ginger's ear got infected, I again took her to REAL vet in Northern California. This vet took the time to look at other possible afflictions, prescribed EFFECTIVE treatment for her skin irritation and ear infection, and also gave instructions on how to decide on the right food options for Ginger. Ginger is finally feeling better, no thanks to the Larchmont Animal Clinic.
Just right – This place is the greatest. My dog loves going here, right up until the time he sees the needle. The small girl up front spoils my baby like it was her own. The doctors are great, and Bailey has his favorite but i'm sure they are all good. The location could not be better. They even have a pet store right next to their parking lot where you could stop by and get something to bribe your dog into behaving for the doctor.
They do everything there, baths, shots, and even risking their lives to clip my Bailey nails.
I highly recommend it :)
