I took my dog to Palmdale Veterinary Hospital on the advice of my friends. They were very professional and CARING about my dog, and they made me feel so welcome. My dog had been in a fight and was beat up. The doctor did a thorough exam and found the wounds AND other wounds I didn't see and fixed her up beautifully. They wanted to be sure she didn't hurt and didn't get infected, and warned me about how the healing process would go and they were right! It was nice to know what to expect, and they were always willing to talk on the phone to help me with questions. They are so patient and gentle with my little girl. You can't beat that. I wish they could be MY doctors, too.

We took our 6 year old lab to Dr. Choi in August, 2011. A few days earlier, our lab suddenly seemed to be in a lot of pain. She yelped when she stood up and was unable to jump into the car. She had no visible injuries. We were scheduled to travel out fo the country with her in less than a week. A friend recommended Palmdale Veterinary.\r\nI am a doctor, but I did not advertise this to Dr. Choi. Our dog is lean and extremely active. She has been eating human food (carefully selected and of good quality) as a treat everyday since she was a puppy. There has never been an issue. As sson as Dr. Choi heard this, he said it was probably pancreatitis from table scraps and recommended a $70 test. I knew that pancreatitis was associated with a fever, which my dog did not have. When I mentioned this to the vet, he blew me off and said this was probably the early stages. The test came back negative. Then, he recommended a set of xrays. I knew this was appropriate in case she had swallowed something that she wasn't supposed to. The xrays came back negative. The vet pointed out that her spleen was enlarged. He said it could be a tumor which could suddenly burst. He wanted to run blood tests, an ultrasound which would probably need to be followed by a biopsy. This is when I told him that I was a doctor and to stop being so vague. When asked how common it was for an enlarged spleen to a tumor, he admitted it was very rare. When asked what the most common and simplest diagnosis for my dog would be, he said it was probably a pulled muscle that required an anti-inflammatory injection followed by pills. I told Dr. Choi that I would go with that and would monitor my dog for the next few days. We left Palmdale Veterinary with a bill of around $500.\r\nOur dog was fine from that evening onwards. She stayed on the medication for only a few days.\r\nI am extremely DISGUSTED with the professional ethics of Palmdale Veterinary and Dr. Choi. To think of what they would have put my dog through if I let them. There has to be a more ethical and caring vet in this area.

To one J D M., you must have trouble grasping reality. Palmdale Veterinary Hospital is THE only, and best place to take an animal. Your personal vendetta is showing. All of the personal is kind, caring, compassionate and willing to work with you, as long as you work with them as well. A clinic's best support to a wonder group of Doctors is its staff. If you??re so un-happy with a great group of people then why do you stay? To have something to complain about?

Drs. McEwan, Choi and Kirshner, are progressive, compassionate, and caring. I know at anytime that my animals need care; I will receive the best and most current treatment available. Charges/prices are reasonable too. I have never been turned away; whether an emergency or a concern. They also provide a vaccine clinic. You can get your animals vaccinated at a lesser price. I have had animal most of my life. I have searched out the best care takers when it comes to my animals. Dr. McEwan rates at the top of my list! You want excellent and consistent care for you pet; Palmdale Veterinary Hospital is for you!

I have been taking my birds & animals to Dr. L. McEwan at the Palmdale Veterinary Hospital since I moved up to the AV 16yrs ago. He is the best veterinarian I have been to in many years, & I??ve been to a lot of them! Over the past 35+ years I have raised & showed, Birman cats, Shelties, Rottweilers, Golden Retrievers & Canaries. If I know more than the vet, I don't go back.

I no longer breed or show anything; I just rescue, spay & neuter animals that have been dumped out here in the desert! All of them go to Dr. L. McEwan first, for what has to be done to make their lives healthy & happy.

I am highly recommending Dr. L. McEwan only, not the other vets that work there. I??m sorry but I know nothing good or bad about them. I??m sure they are good, but I personally don??t know that.

Linda

All the doctors, Doctor Mc Ewan, Doctor Choi, Doctor Kirsch, are absolutely wonderful doctors, ready to help you in moments notice. Animal technicians all of them treat your pets like a family member.

Negative side to it, two particular office managers not naming names don't take suggestions well, they'll take whatever your saying good, bad, or indifferent as an insult, blow it way out proportion regardless of it is, and there no need for that.

I was recently given a female pittbull puppy. She is our family dog (she is apsolutly NOT for fighting). I called palmdale veteniary hospital to ask information about spaying assistance to help with the costs and as soon as mentioned it was a pittbull the receptionist became very rude. She did not provide me with any numbers of organizations and just flat out said NO and hanged up! After wards I called high desert hospital and they provided me with THREE telephone numbers and were very kind! Its ashamed that pittbulls get a bad reputation. In my opinion they are great family dogs. I have 2yr old twins and my dog is very calm around. I have never had anything unfortunate happen with them. I believe that it all depends on the owner on how any dog reacts

I've been bringing my pets here for years. The staff is terrific, but we are especially big fans of Dr. Kirsch. Not only is she a wonderful vet, her caring and kindness are so very much appreciated. I'd recommend her without hesitation.

I have been bringing my dog here since we got her at 8 weeks old.
She is now 6 years old and still very healthy. They provide Spade and Neuter service and also low cost vaccinations days. They also do a great job with our dog's teeth cleaning. The staff is friendly and great with animals and they always send me a friendly reminder by mail when it is time for the updated vaccines and teeth cleaning.
My dog is also happy coming here, because she gets her dog treat after her service.

Dr. McEwan is a lifesaver! He handled my cat's multiple problems with expertise and compassion, and for an extremely reasonable fee. The Dr. and his staff went out of their way to make my "fractious" cat perfectly at ease. He managed to spare my pet trauma and to spare me added expense at the same time. The staff is professional, knowledgeable, and warm, and my cat's special diet problems were also quickly solved by the variety of supplies on hand. The facility is pet and owner friendly and the equipment state of the art. I was referred to the clinic by other long-time pet owners, and they did not let me down!

Vet did not listen to any of my concerns or my dogs symptoms. He fixated on one problem and ignored everything else. The Staff was really nice thou and office was clean.
