We love our clients and patients!


Your kind words mean so much to us.

The entire team at Irvine Boulevard Animal Hospital strives to provide exceptional care during every single visit. Your feedback and testimonials allow us to continue our learning and get better at providing excellent care. From all of us, thank you.

Our 2 previous dogs were happy patients here (1998-2010) until my daughter (vet tech) started working at an animal hospital down the street…and we followed her there.

We’re back again and couldn’t be happier! Our pup’s shots expired so we came for a new patient exam and shots.

Dr. Karen has a way about her that makes you feel like you’re talking with a friend. Add the fact that our pup was comfortable in her presence and it made our visit enjoyable. I’m sure not many pet owners can relate to an enjoyable visit to the vet!

The staff is just as friendly and handled our pup with love and care.

To all my friends that followed us to “the other animal hospital”…come here and get the best care for your pet!

Dr. Lori was super helpful when my puppy ate a foreign object. She took several additional calls from us after the visit and made sure we have all the information. Although our puppy is still waiting to be fully diagnosed, I really appreciate the great job the vet clinic was able to provide to my boy.

The wonderful doctors of Irvine Boulevard animal hospital have been taking wonderful care of my dogs for 10+ years. Doctor Dave is such a joy to work with and is clearly passionate about his career. I also adore doctor Kaplan. My dog had a little paw emergency, and as a crazy neurotic jewish dog mom, I was worried sick and called the vet immediately. Doctor Kaplan took my Oliver “Marty Cohen” Lipsky-Nguyen five minutes after I called. She’s an exceptional vet with such a kind heart. I can kvell all day long. Thank you so much for taking care of my 11 year old baby, doctor Kaplan! you’re a mensch and a half.

This review is long overdue. Quite some time ago our dog was attacked by a coyote, the animal hospital wanted to charge us thousands to operate on him, they gave him a few stitches (thankfully his injuries were minor), we followed up the next day with Dr. Dave and he was fantastic! I had a few follow up appointments and was extremely pleased with him, not only is he very good at what he does but he’s also very down to earth and unlike most places in Irvine I never felt he overpriced anything.

Great service and great care here. It’s refreshing to have such good customer service and a friendly atmosphere. Our pup loves coming here too.

This is the BEST vet hospital I have ever been to, both down in SoCal and SF Bay Area.

They are honest, incredibly helpful, never make you feel rushed, answer your questions thoroughly, and every single person I’ve encountered here has been very nice.

We took our dog here when we first moved to the area, and when we adopted another dog who had a cyst on her foot, they were able to examine it and remove it without putting her under anesthesia (which another vet wanted to charge 4x the amount for the anesthesia and major surgery).

Sometimes you go to a practice where there are multiple vets, and only one of them is the “good” one – but not in this case. Both vets are excellent here, so I never have to worry about which one will be seeing my precious furkids, and I can always trust them to make the best recommendation for our dogs.

Highly, highly recommend this animal hospital if you’re in the area!

Doctor Kaplan is the best vet I’ve ever seen. She is very responsible and patient. She treat my dog as her own child. And keep follow up my dog’s situation.

Dr Dave is so nice. He will talk to you at length about your pet’s issues. I wish my own Dr would be this thorough and compassionate about my health concerns.

We moved to the area recently and needed to find a new veterinarian for our family dog. We visited another vet a few months back when she had a ear infection, and were not impressed. After reading the impressive reviews on yelp, I decided to make an appointment to see Dr Dave when our almost 10 year old lab started acting off.

Without getting into the details too much our dog was dying, quickly. Dr Dave was so compassionate and thorough. He got on the floor and examined our dog extensively. He offered multiple options for treatment while never being pushy. He is very calm and kind, and doesn’t rush you at all. You can tell how much he genuinely cares about your pet and their humans. Because our dog was declining quickly (within about a week), I called the office a lot as new symptoms kept showing up. Dr Dave was made available to me within minutes of calling each time. The one day he wasn’t there the Dr. that was in the office returned my call within 15 minutes, and was very helpful.

Gold & Blue has a sister location called Irvine Boulevard Animal Hospital where we had to go for X-rays and back when our dog needed to be put down. It’s only about 20 minutes from the Lake Forest office. The staff at that location as well was top notch. The Lake Forest location is still pretty new. The office itself is modern and clean. Not your typical vet office, which I really liked. Prices are fair and upfront, and office staff was always attentive and kind.

It’s never easy to lose a family member, but the team at Gold & Blue and Irvine Boulevard we’re so unbelievably kind and compassionate. They made the process as smooth as possible. As soon as we adopt our next fur baby, you can be assured her Dr will be Dr Dave. and his team.

Irvine Blvd Animal Hospital did a great job taking care of my dog the last time I was there. I brought her in for an allergic reaction on her eye. There was little to no wait time with my appointment and the staff were all very friendly and professional! The vet did a great job explaining everything to me and she was in and out in less than an hour. $20 discount on office visit for new patients!

Long overdue on this review but this is an excellent vet! Dr. Dave and his associates and staff are so friendly. Everyone here, including the doctors, take their time explaining everything, never push and always try their best to take a conservative route or what would be best for your fur family!

So excited, what a great place! They even carry the food “just food for dogs”. I have new rescue and he doesn’t eat much. They gave me some samples to find out what he would eat. The staff there is super nice, my furbabies love Dr. Ann. So glad she works there.

If you are looking for a GREAT veterinarian…..look no further, Dr. Driscoll and his team are AWESOME!!! To begin the office is always welcoming and clean and who ever is working the front desk that day will greet you and your 4 legged friend with a friendly smile. Dr. Driscoll always takes the time to answer all your questions, explain everything in perfect detail and makes sure to spend some quality time pampering your furry friend! Thank you Dr. Driscoll and your whole staff for always making me and my buddy Banjo feel welcome!!

Dr. Kaplan and the staff at Irvine Blvd Animal Hospital are professional, knowledgeable, fair and offer excellent follow up care. I’m grateful to have found a Vet that really cares about my pet and they will definitely be my go to Vet for all pet services.

Dr Dave and staff have been taking care of our schnauzers now for close to 10 years. While we’ve moved from Irvine 6 years ago, there’s plenty of other vets to choose from, its his level of detail, attention to follow up and compassion and love of animals that made us make sure to drive the extra miles to take care of our pampered pooches.

Wonderful Dr. & Staff. This summer my 18 year old rescue kitty became ill. I took her to see Dr. Dave for a check up. Unfortunately, after 18 years she was found to have an incurable disease. This week she left us to be in kitty heaven. Thank you Irvine Blvd Animal Hospital for your care and kindness to Heidi & I. Everyone there was so nice to Heidi and made her comfortable and safe. The work you do really matters.
