Our cat was seen almost at the correct appointment time. They immediately requested past records from our previous bet. I liked that they did their initial exam and tests with us present. We were told every step of the way, what they wanted to do next as far as diagnostic tests are concerned and we were informed of the cost up front. After giving permission, the tests were conducted within the half hour and then the Dr. came in and discussed her findings. She then chose to refer us to the VCA West Coast Specialty and Emergency Animal Hospital because she suspected our cat might have a blockage that might need surgery, but definitely needed an ultra sound. We felt very comfortable with her recommendations because she shared all the test results with us on the spot. We will definitely be using the Animal Hospital of Huntington Beach for all our future pet needs.
