Finally found a vet who is excellent, staff is great, and I trust him completely. Dr. John always gives me options, tells me the pros and cons of the options, and is very current in his knowledge and expertise. We've been in Ventura County 30 years, and have had unpleasant experiences with a good many veterinarians and emergency vet hospitals. Thank goodness for Dr. John and staff! I've also seen Dr. Youngblood, who I also trust completely. I foster dogs so am at AVVH often, and they are just amazing with whatever situation I bring them. The kindness and concern shown by all staff members is genuine and touching.
