I take my senior cats to Dr Mangat and very much trust them in his care. He has very reasonable rates, is just a phone call away (except on Sundays) and is very flexible with appointments, same day possible, which is almost required for me with my skittish boy with whom it often takes a whole day to get into his carrier! Once a regular client, you will quickly grow to adore his house kitties, Tom, who rules the roost, and pretty Cookie, who is very shy of people but follows Tom like his shadow so sightings are quite possible. I have pet insurance and with my cats' chronic issues, he has helped make the processing of claims as swift as possible as well. If you want quality care for your companions at very reasonable rates, and one Veterinarian you know is just a call away to focus their attention on your animals, I highly recommend Dr Mangat.
We were able to walk in and wait for a time slot to open up. It didn't take very long. Our two-year old German Shepherd mix had an ear infection. The vet was great with our dog—doing an examination of his ears and gave us a two week cure that involved ear cleaning, ear medicine and antibiotics. It seems very thorough...and a two week follow-up appointment. The only reason I perhaps should not give a five star review is that we had trouble getting through to them on the phone so we decided to just show up there. But on the other hand, their prices are very reasonable and they are very nice people so perhaps it's a good tradeoff for some customers.
I appreciated the time and effort that went into treating my very uncooperative dog, who we recently adopted and who has an ear infection - and apparently isn't as accustomed to being fully handled as what he is now experiencing. Dr. Mangat was patient with me and his new patient, as well as his new assistant, while we all tackled my new dog - literally - and his ear issues, along with his other personal issues, all of which presented difficulties that only a good veterinarian can cope with and handle effectively. I've done my research so I also know that Dr. Mangat offers the most reasonably priced services in Hayward; as it turns out, he was able to quickly assess our dog's needs and provide me with thorough, easy to understand instructions. We had learned of Caring Pet a few years ago when our 22-year-old cat had to be put to sleep; at that time, we had been taken advantage of by another vet who made the end of our cat's life worse, so we were very appreciative of how compassionate Dr. Mangat was toward us. In my opinion, these are all of the qualities that pet owners should look for in a vet and I'm comfortable with recommending Dr. Mangat.
Dr. Mangat is terrific both accommodating me and providing excellent care for my "children". He is helpful and understanding and honors my requests but always putting my pets health dirt. He has saved their lives several times. From cancer to accidental poisoning! Having worked as a vet tech and with numerous veterinarians over the years I am very critical of the doctors I put the lives of my beloved pets care in and Dr.Mangat has been wonderful ( and economical too).
