"We have a Boston, Louie and since we moved here we have been coming to Petsadena. We have recieved nothing but exceptional care. Everyone from the Reception staff to the Vet techs to the Vets themselves have always been outstanding. Are they busy, yes. Do they still take the time to explain everything, again yes. We would not go anywhere else."
"I am so happy to have found Petsadena. After adopting our rescue during Covid I was unsuccessful at reaching any other vet clinic and they were super responsive and professional. When we finally got in to see the vet (Which was that same week) they were so organized and made our first time seamless and stress free. Their intake assistant was so reassuring and truly delightful. The fact that we were still able to remotely connect to "sit in" on our Pup's first visit was just icing on the cake. Thanks, Petsadena!"
"My pup began going to Petsadena during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although he is a very anxious pup without me at the vet, the team at Petsadena were very kind, understanding of my dogs anxiety, and still gave him great care. Their ability to talk to you while they work with your animal is impressive and the technology is great! Since our first visit, we've had a few tech visits and a day-of appointment that all went smoothly and were helpful. Thanks!"
"I've been taking my adult cat to Petsadena for the past year and they have the most compassionate, comprehensive, and quality care I've seen in a veterinary practice. Everyone who works there is extremely professional-- even with the complications that have come from COVID, they've made visits accessible, easy, and stress-free for my pet."
