Thank you for making us one of the highest-rated veterinary hospitals in West Hollywood, CA.

Laurel Pet Hospital is exceptional! Dr. Rettinger is incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate, and kind. The administrative staff is super efficient, organized, and accommodating. All the vet techs are friendly and sweet, both with me and my cat. It’s hard to leave him for treatment, but I always feel reassured knowing that he’s with people who go above and beyond to make sure he’s comfortable and safe. My cat had a dental cleaning and extraction today, and Justin, one of the techs, took the time to answer all my questions about aftercare and was so thorough. My cat means the world to me and I wouldn’t take him anywhere else. Laurel is the best!

This has been one of the worst weeks of my life, but the folks at this hospital made it that much more bearable. Their care for my cat in her last few days is something I’ll remember forever. Nearly everyone I interacted with was empathetic and compassionate. They spoke to me with patience and answered all of my questions. They did everything to ensure mine and my cat’s comfort, and while I hate the fact that I had to say goodbye, I am glad that I did so under their care. I only wish I had known about them earlier so they could have been my cat’s full time vets from the start.
