  • "Dr. Berens and staff are amazing! I took in my blue & gold Macaw (Charlie) because he had been limping for a few days and wasn't getting better. I called on a Sunday and I was surprised that they were able to see me that same day! It just shows you the compassion they have for the animals they treat."
  • "I just moved to California about 5 months ago and needed a new vet for my puppy. At first all I needed was a vet to get my pup neutered and hope to not pay an arm and a leg for the procedure. Not only did I find a reasonably priced option at West Valley Pet Clinic but the staff was so attentative and kind to me and my pup. Their service was so good that I decided to go back to them as my primary and only vet here in my new home in Cali."
