Read What Our Clients Say

    Dr. Rojas has always been loving, caring, and extremely professional and experienced with my pets. She saved 11 week old Bella when diagnosed with Parvo, I didn't think she would survive but she did, thanks to the expert care of Dr. Rojas and her staff who did a wonderful job at caring for her during hospitalization, they even gave her a bath. Bella has recovered beautifully and is once again vibrant and energetic, eating, drinking, and enjoying life. Dr. Rojas saved her life and saved me heart ache again after having lost my beloved poodle Bibi just recently. We love you Dr. Rojas, you are the best! Prices are affordable compared to other clinics and staff is helpful and nice.

    I am a member of this family, since 1990, the staff and doctors are wonderful, have been great with all my children(dogs) I have nothing but high praise for this Animal hospital.

    All our family dogs have had EXCEPTIONAL care at D.E.A.H. Drs. Hopp & Klein are excellent practitioners, patient with all my furry babies and most compassionate and empathetic when discussing end of life measures. As long as I have dogs in my life, Dr s Hopp and Klein will be the veterinarians of my choice. (too bad they don't treat humans; I'd most likely seek their care for my medical needs) 😁. Seriously, excellent care with minimal waiting, superb and clear explanations are the norm at each visit. If you're new to El Paso or looking for a new vet, seek no more! I recommend them with no reservations.

    The Doctors and staff are awesome. You can tell they care for our pets. When we visit, they even call our dog by name as we walk in. They're like family when it comes to our pet's well-being. I've been taking my pet's here for about 20 years.

    We’ve been taking our dogs to Desert East Hospital for over 3 years, and even though there are Vets closer to us I would not change. The staff is great, and the Vet Doctors are absolutely awesome!! I would highly recommend Desert East for all your furry friends’ needs.

    This is the most caring, professional veterinarian clinic ever. The loving care by each doctor is unmatched. My pets have been treated like their own pets. The doctors spend extra time to give the best care and comfort for each patient. They are the best!!!

    I have to bid farewell to my precious boy Danny and Dr. Hopp made it easy for me. Received a plant and a card from them. I know every one of them had touched and had taken good care of my Danny for almost 12 years. Thank you so much guys! I'm still not ok after losing him but I know time heals. I still have Simon to love and care.

    We had to say goodbye to our baby Oscar. She had been cared for here for almost 11 years up to her last breath. Dr. Rojas and her assistant were amazing in helping with our decision. Everyone here is and has been extremely compassionate. They allowed us to take our time to say our goodbyes and handled everything so nicely. We received Oscar’s ashes today, I never expected to receive her in such a nice package. Everything was so beautiful. Our family will forever be grateful for the services that were provided from this clinic. We have 4 other babies that we will continue to bring here. Thank you for caring for Oscar in such a beautiful way

    I love this establishment. You can tell all of the staff really care and are there to help out. Every time we had a problem with are dogs they were quick to get us in and figure out what was going on. I wouldn’t trust anyone else.

    Constance K.

    Dr Klein is amazing. She takes such great care of all of our fur babies, always asking how the others are when we bring someone in. She and the staff have saved one of our family pups from parvo, has helped us rehabilitate a senior dog that had his neck fractured in a freak accident with a couple other dogs (and was written off for as good as dead by the Emergency Animal Hospital ) and recently helped us save a street kitten with a nasty abscess on his cheek. She is always up front and honest with us. It's always 100% clear it's about the animals welfare. Going there is definitely worth the 30 minute drive across town for us! 💚

    Dr Hopp and Dr Klein have always done a wonderful job with our pups. They have taken care from beginning to end and show great compassion to the owners. We lost our boxer in September and had to humanely let him go. Since we have been with them for so long they allowed us to pay once we picked up his remains. They respect the owners and wanted to allow us to leave when we were ready. They have always given choices of treatment and have been spot on when it came to diagnoses. They are very fair with pricing and the entire staff has always been wonderful. Our bulldog has had to have many surgeries and the surgery done by Dr Hopp and Dr Klein has always been clean and without issues. Not only do they care about your pets they care about their clients and make every effort to help in any situation.
