Our Vet for Life

- Susan and Stephen Praver from Westlake Village, CA
Pet Name: Akeam

We have been bringing our 14 year old Samoyed, Akeam, to your Animal Hospital since you first opened in Westlake Village. We have always been impressed by your Veterinarians but, must say, that our most recent experience was the best we have ever experienced. Dr. Rick Kohltfarber has an amazing way of presenting the facts in a very caring and personal way. He is very thorough and is amazing with his follow-through. In all the many years I have had dogs, I have never felt so comfortable and warm from meeting a Vet for the very first time. My husband and I cannot say enough about him and we hope he will be our vet for life. We have already told a number of our friends about him and we applaud you for having such a caring and knowledgeable Vet as part of your team. We also want to thank you for having Gail as one of your receptionists. She is also very caring and personable as we can tell that she loves working at your facility. Thank you again for opening in Westlake Village and for having such wonderful people on staff! Sincerely, Susan and Stephen Praver (and Akeam)

We are extremely grateful we found your hospital!

Pet Name: Nala

On Wednesday, February 10 we brought our dog Nala into your hospital for emergency treatment on her tongue, that was severed in half. We have been going to the same vet for over 20 years. Her office was closed on Wednesday. Your office was recommended to us by Mike Grossman from the Ventura County Sheriff's K9 Search and Rescue team. We are writing this email to commend your staff on their expertise and outstanding service. Our first experience was with Allie who couldn't have been more efficient and polite on the phone. She handled our emergency with poise and professionalism. Nala received the utmost care from Dr. David Namekata. He performed the surgery and did an outstanding job. Nala was good to go home that evening. He carefully explained how to take care of her once we got her home. Your entire staff is warm, friendly and professional. We have three dogs and have already scheduled an appointment for our 13-year-old Jack Russell terrier to have his teeth cleaned next week. We are extremely grateful we found your hospital for all our dogs future veterinary needs.
