Dr. Mike Ina at Arguello Pet Hospital has taken excellent care of my pets since 1995. I had 3 cats who all died at ripe old ages. Dr. Ina has always been wonderful, but his kind and gentle manner when it was time to put down each of our cats was truly exceptional. We also saw Dr. Fong at Arguello during a time when Dr. Ina was out of town and he diagnosed my very fiesty 20 year old cat with osteosarcoma. He was great even though we could tell he was a little afraid of our hissing, spitting, growling, vicious baby. We now have two kittens and a puppy and they are all under the care of Dr. Ina.

I wish I had taken my cat to Dr. Fong Arguello Pet instead of to a specialist vet (specializing in cats in the Sunset district.) Dr. Fong probably could have saved my cat's life by correctly diagnosing what he had ingested and taking action sooner. I ended up going to Arguello pet after the vet "specialist" in the Sunset misdiagnosed the situation and my cat fell into a hypoventilic state. I then rushed to Arguello vet, and while it was too late for them to resuscitate what was essentially the most loved pet I think I will ever have, Dr. Fong handled the situation with grace and compassion. I was essentially inconsolable, and I don't envy vets who have to deal both with animals they can't save, and the pet owners who are then distraught beyond all measure.
Years later, I'm still not over the loss, and still blame myself for not going to Arguello Vet in the first place instead of the veterinary specialist whom I foolishly thought would be better. But I know to trust Arguello Vet from now on. (And other vets I know to avoid.)

Dr Joe Fong is the best vet we've ever known. He's very caring and treats all the pets as if they were his own. His new hospital is fantastic the hours are wonderful. The hospital is open from 8:00 AM to 8:00PM Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Thursday and Friday 8:00 to 6:00 and this is the best Saturday 9:00 to 4:00. Now if we need an office visit or medication the hours are great after work or the weekend. The staff is friendly. He has taken care of my 2 doggies since they were puppies and I have confidence in him of handling their health care. 5 stars it is highly recommended.

It appears that Dr. Fong has left Park Animal hospital. If anyone knows where he is, my dog, my friends dog and we would like to know. He is the greatest!

While the location can be central for a lot of folks living on this side of the city, I would not recommend this hospital for your pet . After going to a new vet, I discovered Arguello Hospital had talked me into spending more than needed on unnecessary tests, they were comparitively way too expensive, and ultimately never did diagnose my animal accurately. The care isn't that good, the staff is not that friendly, not compassionate - and ultimately they were not able to help my pet at all. Also, my cat who was pretty good about the vet, but is beyond frighteneded these days to go, after we went to Arguello several times. I don't know how they treated my cat behind closed doors, but it had a lasting impact on my kitty for sure.... Skip it

Pros: Convenient location for back side of city (though parking is extremly tough)

Cons: Too expensive, staff is not friendly, they don't follow up well, and ultimately poor diagnosis.

Dr. Fong is professional and understands the needs of our little friends. Everyone who has a pet should see Dr. Joe Fong.

Arguello pet hospital is located in the richmond district. When we lived in the area we brought our dog here for his vet care. They took very good care of our dog and the service of the staff is wonderful. Everyone here is so friendly.

I only got to see Dr. Fong once and found Arguello hospital through the reviews of Dr. Fong. He is great but now he no longer works there. However, I have had Dr. Ina and Dr. Price see my french bulldog puppy and they are great. Extremely friendly and experienced. I really like the other staff as well at the front desk. However one woman there needs to improve her attitude and is very cold and even rude at times. Otherwise the other women there are great and always ready to give hugs and even kisses to my pup! I feel good going there for my puppy's care.

One day I expressed my disappointment with its service and the next day the manager sent all my pets record to me and told me to find another hospital, while my cat was still sick! It made you think that they are not there caring for your pets.

I brought all our animals to Arguello and always had a great experience. The staff try hard to remember you AND all your pet's names! We saw Dr. Fong, who was great, altho in a pinch we've used the other doctor's as well and they were also great! The vets go out of their way to explain things to you and give you adequate time. They don't try to rush you in and out. We have since moved to New York and still haven't found and adequate replacement for Arguello Hospital! We were spoiled by them!

I went for the firt time the other day to utilize their pet 'ER'. The wait was long, but the staff was courteous, professional and when I made it into the examine room with my dog, the Doctor was very communicative and answered all my questions. The price is what I expected for an ER visit, lab test and meds. I will go back again indeed. I am very impressed by how kind the staff are, and how clean everything is.

Pros: Veterinarian, Saturday appt

Cons: Location

If you need to keep your pet healthy, they take great care of him. They have highly trained professional vets at this location. They are very affordable and inexpensive. Cost of pet care could cost you a lot but Arguello Pet makes sure that it is affordable and that your pet is taken great care of. They have a great location and this is probably my first choice to go to have my dog taken care of.

Like all people, pets also need medical care. I love Arguello Pet Hospital because they take such great care of my dog, Turbo. They make sure that he gets all his shots in a comfortable way. Their staff and services are great. They make you feel totally at home. The doctors are extremely professional because they can relate to all pets. Dr. Fong is one of the doctors there and he is great.

I take both my cats to Arguello Pet Hospital and the vets and support staff are all great. The staff always has treats for my guys and the vets are gentle with the animals and patient with explaining things to me. I've never had a bad experience there.

Dr. Fong is great with cats - always makes my cat less nervous and eases my tensions as well. Dr. Fong is knowledgable, friendly, and very personable. The staff and service is also great! And the prices are very reasonble.

Dr. Fong goes out of his way to make puppies feel 100% comfortable at the vet. Now that my dog is almost full grown and been through many shots, neutering, etc. he still loves trips to the vet because of Dr. Fong. He makes me feel at ease, answers all my questions and gives a very high level of medical care to my dog at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend him for any pet owner, especially those with new puppies.

I have had a very good experience in my dealings with the vets and professionals at Arguello Pet Hospital. They are kind to my cat and respond to my questions with courtesy that professionalism. When I've had urgent issues with my pet they've made time to see him, and when I have questions by phone my vet has always called me back within a reasonable amount of time. This sort of treatment keeps me a happy customer.

Their prices are not the lowest, but frankly I don't shop for this type service based on price. They're certainly not the most expensive in town either.

My only wish is that they had separate waiting rooms for cats and dogs.
