Our staff at Urban Pet Hospital is filled with passionate animal lovers who are here to help you and your pet! They are highly trained and dedicated to making sure that your pets receive the care and compassion they deserve every time they walk in the door!
We offer the following services to keep your pets healthy:
If you want to travel internationally with your pet, you need to plan ahead. Since each country is different, you will have to contact the embassy or consulate where you are going to find out what you need to do.
Though every country has different requirements, most require a health certificate that is done by a USDA-accredited veterinarian. Luckily, we have a USDA-accredited veterinarian. If you are not a client, you need to make sure you bring your pets’ records in with you to the examination.
If you have a cat or dog, your biggest fear may be fleas and ticks. These critters are not only annoying to you and your pet, but fleas and ticks can also cause a whole slew of problems. Fleas can transmit tapeworms and your pet may experience itching, irritation and allergies. Ticks can also cause Lyme disease, tick paralysis and much more.
Our staff can recommend the best tick and flea prevention method so you can avoid this mess altogether! When you schedule an appointment at our animal care clinic in San Francisco, we’ll schedule a regular flea, tick, and heartworm checkup and prevention appointment, so you don’t have to worry about these pesky diseases!
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and has the potential to seep into your pet’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
At Urban Pet Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.
But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should he or she ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.
Annual checkups are an essential for all cats and dogs. No matter how healthy he or she may seem, it is important to have an experienced veterinarian check him or her out. Our veterinarians are trained to notice early warning signs of leukemia in kittens, monitor healthy growth and development, and detect any diseases early on. We’ll also make sure all shots and vaccinations are updated.
When you take your pet in just once a year to be looked at by us, you can go home with your special friend knowing that he or she is healthy and happy. To schedule your appointment, please call today at (415) 400-5754.
Heartworm can occur in your cat or dog after being bitten by a mosquito. The mosquito can transfer the infection through the bite and these types of parasites can fatally damage your pet’s heart, lungs and even blood vessels. The symptoms for heartworm can vary from pet to pet. Some pets may not show any signs of infection. Dogs are affected more than cats.
The key is prevention. Come to us for medicine to prevent roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, ear mites, fleas, and ticks. Call today for an appointment.
Procedures done on dogs and cats are challenging for a variety of reasons, one being that they often don’t want to be still while doctors and staff are trying to help the animal. They also have a level of stress that comes from being in an unfamiliar environment. Because of this, the use of anesthesia is a beneficial way to give pets the care they need.
The use of anesthesia is safe, and we are expertly trained in administering it and caring for patients that are under. If you have any concerns about anesthesia for your pet, please call us today at (415) 400-5754. We would be happy to speak with you and assuage any fears you may have.
We are pleased to offer our clients the highest quality veterinary care. We want nothing but the best for our clients, especially during surgery. It is our goal to make sure that our surgical team is prepared to offer our clients the latest medical procedures. We look forward to learning about the newest medical advances in surgery and actively partake in continued surgical education.
