Your pet's care and comfort are at the heart of all that we do. We consider our veterinary practice to be a place of healing and compassion, and we look forward to the opportunity to partner with you on you pet's health care.
At a typical medical visit, one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians will collect a medical history and list of concerns, and perform a minimum data base such as weight and temperature. Your furry friend will be given a tip-to-tail examination by one of our Veterinary Doctors, who will discuss treatment or diagnostic recommendations. If your pet needs to be hospitalized, or the recommended diagnostic plan is more extensive, our staff will go over an itemized Treatment Care Plan estimate. If you would like an estimate for any services at any time, please ask! We are happy to go over any anticipated costs with you to try and avoid unexpected financial surprises. Our Client Care Specialists will work to guide you efficiently through check-out, and schedule any recommended follow-up appointments for your pet.
For our four-legged patients who have recently been examined by the doctor and need ongoing monitoring, minor treatments (bandage changes, nail trims, anal gland expression), or vaccine boosters, we offer Technician appointments. These streamlined appointments with one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians help your pet get their necessary blood tests or shots more quickly, so you two can get on with your busy day.
Please check our Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine page for further information about these more specialized appointments. And if you would like your pet to be examined while they board here at the Pleasanton Pet Hotel, please let us know. We would be happy to have one of our Town & Country veterinarians provide any needed medical services while your furry friend is staying with us.
