I feel so comforted by Dr. Hayter and the entire staff here. They always take their time with you and I know my cat is receiving high quality care when she has to visit. They even trim her nails and give her a bath when she needs it! She always seems relaxed when she has an appointment there. Thank you guys!!

Everyone at Laguna Beach Animal Hospital is really great! They always make me feel very comfortable, and calm, when I am having medical issues with my kitties, or even just having their shots updated. They will always give me all my options and work with me to get the best care for my animals. I wont take my fur babies anywhere else.

I took my dog in for an exam - he had thrown up and had a soft stool. They recommended an X-Ray, overnight stay with IV fluids, and a "pill" for his vomiting. After I said I was taking the dog home they said not to feed him or let him drink water for 12 hours. I instead gave him half a portion of his dinner and a couple of fried eggs. He's fine now. Felt like they were trying to upsell, would not recommend.

Incredible caring staff. They called the next day as well to see how my dog was doing. I would highly recommend them to anyone and the bill was very reasonable unlike some veterinary offices.

Our dog was bitten by a rattlesnake in our yard, and thanks to Covid-19 we were home and able to act quickly. We called a few Animal Hospitals in the area looking for Anti-venom and Laguna Beach Animal Hospital had it in stock. I was met in the parking lot by staff, and Dr. Hayter, and they immediately went to work on the dog. Just as the dog was starting to swell, he already had pain meds, fluids, and anti-venom on board. We are so grateful for how quickly they acted, the care, and followup. My dog is fine, and we have a new Veterinarian.

I'm very happy with the care you've been able to give to my Stella. I've been to other vet offices who, because of her aggression, won't even attempt to trim her nails without first sedating her. Your staff is able to deal with her without any problems, and everyone is always very knowledgeable and helpful.

This is our family's 3rd rescue kitten in the last 17 years. The staff at LBAH has always been super personable, and caring, actually engaging with us and all our kitties! I believe they adore them and care about them almost as much as we do! When My 1st cat died-in my arms at the clinic, they were there to support me and were so gracious to let me sit there and grieve (ok be hysterical) for as long as I needed. The next day, I received a HUGE beautiful bouquet of flowers and a lovely card. I will never forget that experience. Thank you so much, all of you at LBAH!

I’ve taken Odin here since he was a puppy and although he hates going (the groomers also strikes fear into Odin) the staff are always very good with him and very professional. Dr Rosencrantz makes sure Odin’s health now and to the future is being looked out for.

I'm a loyalist to my vet; however, they do not treat rats so I called up LBAH and they did. I had a real good experience with the staff and doctor, they were realistic and honest about my rat's condition. It's been 4 days and my "Dude" is starting to show signs of recovery from his infection. Keep you updated, hopefully a photo soon. Thanks again, Brett.

Dr Rosencrantz and the team at Laguna Beach Animal Hospital are the best! They're attentive, clearly communicative, and deeply knowledgable as well as willing to refer to specialists as needed. I trust them with my pets' health, always.

Our dog always received great care here. Now, our cat was attacked by a racoon. Took him in and he was seen immediately. Staff was very receptive and compassionate. Very caring vet and excellent care is leading to a full recovery. I highly recommend Laguna Beach Animal Hospital.

We just moved to Laguna Beach and had to bring our kitty in for a check-up. Found Laguna Beach Animal Hospital via Google and was pleasantly surprised with the great customer service. I was able to get an appointment quickly, the front desk staff was super friendly, the vet who took care of him (her name escapes me) was super friendly, patient, kind and knowledgeable. We will definitely be coming back!

My dog got into the garbage and ate a bunch bad stuff including cooked chicken bones and fresh grapes. I was worried first and foremost about the health of my animal and least of which the anticipated cost. The doctor promptly got on the line and let me know normally this situation would be an easy fix of bringing him down and having the dog vomit but since he ate bones that wouldn't be a good idea. The protocol was 48 hours of IV fluids (grapes are one of the few things that can kill a dog). The doctor asked if I wanted an update call - I said: "Yes at any hour" I received a personal update in the middle of the night. After 24 hours toxicity reports, which were being closely monitored, looked normal and I was allowed to bring him home early. The bill was not cheap but given the care, the confidence of knowing I did the best thing for my animal and the fact that my dog is alive and without internal damage it was a small price to pay.

My husband and I moved to Dana Point a few years ago and took out 2 fur boys (golden Retriever & Goldendoodle) to several vets in OC and Laguna Beach Animal Hospital is by far the best. All the Dr’s are very knowledgeable and great about educating the pet parent. They are genuinely interested in ensuring they are providing the best care for your pet and aren’t trying to pressure you into unnecessary procedures or tests. They’re the best and would highly recommend them!

Laguna Beach Animal Hospital is great. They are friendly and have our animal's best interest at heart. I am not sure how they compare price wise, but I always feel like it's a little pricey. Love the staff and doctors though. Happy to have my dog cared for by them.

Six months ago at the recommendation of a friend, I began taking my cats, Ashley and Misty to Laguna Beach Animal Hospital, and I couldn't be more pleased with the excellent and compassionate service I have received for my senior kitties. Vet visits are never cheap, but I discovered that the prices here are comparable to other vets in the region. What makes this place so special is the high level of caring attention my girls have received from Dr. Levin, Dr. Rosencrantz and Dr. Nudleman. At 14 and 13 years old, between them, the girls have had to deal with a host of issues many senior cats face including diabetes, kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, and feline herpes. With my cats having to deal with the complications and dietary restrictions resulting from these conditions, I naturally have a lot of questions and concerns, and the vets and staff have gone out of their way to answer my questions and guide me in providing the best care for my beautiful senior cats. It's wonderful to always feel welcomed and never rushed at this office, and I love the comfort of knowing these vets and this staff are incredibly competent, and obviously love and do their best for the animals in their care.

I recently took my rescue pup, Heidi, to LBAH for the first time. Heidi has had a hard time with new veterinarians ever since we adopted her four years ago, but Dr. Rosencrantz did an awesome job reassuring Heidi and getting her taken care of. I really appreciated that Dr. Rosencrantz trusted me to help introduce them and calm my anxious dog. Would highly recommend to other pet owners!

We just took our dog (Andy) to Laguna Beach Ainmal Hospital for physical checkup, especially eye exam. Although the first time physical exam is free, Dr. Rosencrantz examed our dog thoroughy and did an excellent job.

Very friendly towards humans and dogs, great follow up calls. They do not push procedures or medicine to make that extra buck. Give you great advice.
