I visited this business for several months for treatment of my dogs and cats. They were always too busy for same-day appointments, even when it was an emergency. The staff is snide and unhelpful. they are always backed-up in the scheduling so you end up waiting all the time to see the vet. I have since moved to Boulevard Cat and Dog Clinic in Garden Grove and they are wonderful. The doctor there even visited me in my home in Long Beach to attend to my dogs cancer. She was soooooo sweet and helpful. The staff is great, always professional and intelligent.

This place is the best! The doctors are extremely compassionate and it is a well-run and trustworthy business. I have taken my dog and 2 cats here for over 3 years. Dr. Vani has gone over and above for my pets, and has kept me well informed, too. She has even given me her email address for questions and was willing to come to my home to put my cat down when he was dying of a tumor. She also nursed my dog back to health when he was very ill and was bleeding internally from something he ate. He is happy and healthy now, thanks to her. I cannot say enough good things about this veterinary practice, and I have referred several people here who have been just as happy as I am. All the doctors and technicians are top-notch.

I have a Weimaraner with issues...constant ear infections and skin irritations. On our first visit to Dr. Vani she solved them with a very practical approach. We have been coming to Boulevard Animal Hospital ever since. I fully trust her sound judgement and caring approach. I would never dream of going anywhere else. I have personally recommended freinds and family who are also very happy with her services. The staff know our dog by name! If I could give them a higher recommendation I would.

my dog was bitten by another big dog. After the physical check up, the vet cannot identify the wounds! She said "NOTHING" to me. I saw the 2 wounds later when I got home. Paid $44 for the exam and had to run to Petco buying first aid products for my dog. WASTE OF MONEY! DON'T COME HERE!

Competent, kind, and caring! Dr. Vani and and her staff are top notch! Dr. Vani has years of experience as a vet and it shows. I have been to numerous vets over the years and am thrilled to have found one I trust (and have been going here for years!) Her skill as a vet and surgeon is wonderful and she is also a very kind individual who listens to patients and their concerns. She is just a first rate vet!!! Check this place out! Dr. Sumpter is also wonderful.

Dr. Vani & staff have always provided the best care possible, regardless of financial means. All of my dealings have been very respectful & always professional. Most importantly, Dr. Vani & staff have always gone above & beyond any of my expectations. She has donated her time, energy, heart & resources for several of my more complicated cases - never asking anything in return. She is genuine in her love & care for all animals & has gone to great lengths to make sure they receive only the best care possible. I know each & every rescue they treat will be in the most capable hands around! Thank you so much Dr. Vani, you make my job much easier!!

I love this Animal Hospital. My cat doesn't mind going there! She hops in her cage and sleeps the whole way. We live 40 minutes from this hospital. There are places I could take them much closer but I prefer taking them there. Banfield scares them unlike this vet. I haven't had an emergency since banfield killed my last kitty on accident... But I completely trust BAH with my babies!

I was very pleased with Dr. Vani. I have lived in many states and met with many vets regarding my pet. I thought Dr. Vani was thorough, kind, and very sincere. My pet is very active and happy but unfortunately he is chronically ill and requires monthly exams and bloodwork. I wouldn't even consider going back if I thought Dr. Vani wasn't a qualified vet. I am very lucky to have found her after moving here just a short time ago.

They are great, but I am a little biased. I was told to put my cat asleep by another vet because she was very sick and sixteen years old. But Dr. Vani worked with her, that is year ago, she very healthy and happy. Most people that do not know think she is a kitten.

We board our dog here a few times a year, and they know him by name as soon as we introduce ourselves on the phone. This is the only place he gets a bath where he isn't stinky again 2 days later! We've always been happy with the staff and service, and they are very friendly.
