It can be scary and cause great concern when our pets are not feeling well. Our veterinarians and support staff have been caring for sick patients for many years. We care deeply about the human-animal bond, and see your pet as an extension of your family.
For evaluation of new symptoms, changes in behavior, accidents or injuries, give us a call to book an appointment. We want to be here for your pet beyond routine wellness care.
Uncertain if something is off? Our team can help triage the situation and get a note to our vets for advise. If there is something we can recommend to help at home, we will. If the vet recommends a visit, we will look for an appointment within their recommended time frame. If we are unable to accommodate your pet as urgently as needed, we will provide you with urgent care recommendations in the Bay Area.
Advise can only be provided to existing patients with a current wellness exam completed within the last 12 months. Patients on the waiting list to establish care are not eligible for this service. We would recommend contacting your existing veterinarian or visiting an emergency or urgent care facility.
Regular visits, at least annually, are the best way to stay on top of your pet's health. We are required to perform an in person physical exam at least every 12 months to maintain a veterinarian-client-patient-relationship. Without this VCPR we are unable to make any recommendations, administer treatments, or prescribe medications (including preventatives) for your pet.
Before your pet's visit we will send you an intake form. We request you take a few minutes to fill it our fully and thoroughly. This will ensure that all of your questions and concerns are addressed once you arrive.
During your pet's wellness exam the veterinarian will do a nose to tail physical exam. They will discuss all of your questions and concerns, share with you their physical exam findings, come up with a treatment plan, and set a timeline for the next visit.
We will keep your pet up to date on vaccinations, make recommendations for any routine labwork and/or parasite testing, and ensure you have authorization for an additional year of preventative medications.
Maintaining a routine schedule for examinations allows your veterinarian the chance to pick up on subtle changes throughout your pet's lifetime. As your pet ages your veterinarian may recommend examinations at a more frequent interval.
