You want your pet to be happy and healthy, and to be able to enjoy as many years of companionship with them as possible. At Carmel Mountain Ranch Veterinary Hospital, we share that very same goal, and we want to help you achieve it! That’s why we’ve worked so hard to develop a comprehensive system of care that is designed to assist your pet through every stage of life – from birth through the senior years – to support a lifetime of good health. It’s our mission and what each member of our team is passionate about.

Our services focus first on wellness and preventative care, because we believe that this provides your animal companion with a solid foundation of good health. Beyond that, however, we’re also experienced and well equipped to handle any type of medical, dental, diagnostic or surgical need that may arise for your pet. Whether it’s a routine checkup, a diagnostic test to detect illness in its earliest stages, a complex surgical procedure to save your pet’s life, or just about anything in between, we’ve got everything you need in one convenient location.

In addition to our complete pet care for traditional companion animals, like cats and dogs, we also offer a full range of services for the care and treatment of birds, reptiles and other small mammals. Veterinary care for these creatures requires specialized training and skills. Our highly qualified team possesses experience in the care and treatment of a broad spectrum of exotic animals. In fact, many of our staff members own or have owned an exotic pet themselves, so we know what it takes to keep these special creatures happy and healthy!

Regardless of whether your companion is covered in fur, feathers or scales and can walk, crawl, slither or fly – we’ve got all of the tools and support necessary to provide them with a lifetime of quality care. Our extensive list of animal health care services includes, but is not limited to:

  • Wellness Care

Wellness & Vaccinations

Many otherwise responsible pet owners make the mistake of thinking that their companions don’t need to see the vet unless they’re sick. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, regular checkups and preventative care are vital to helping your pet enjoy a long, healthy life. Because our pets age at a much faster rate than we do, routine wellness visits – at least once a year – provide us with the opportunity to both manage their present health, and to identify and address potential health concerns before they can develop into something more serious. Disease prevention and early detection can add years to your cherished pet’s life. Carmel Mountain Ranch Veterinary Hospital offers comprehensive wellness care, including customized vaccination plans, to help extend and improve the quality of your pet’s life. Don’t wait until your pet is sick to bring them to us – give them the gift of a lifetime of good health by making a commitment to regular wellness care.

Since our pets can’t speak, they can’t advise us when they’re feeling sick or have been injured in some way. What’s more, unless the underlying problem is external and visible to the naked eye, recognizing the signs of a possible problem can be a challenge. That’s why veterinary diagnostics are so important. These tools, such as laboratory testing, x-rays and ultrasound imaging, provide our doctors with the ability to look below the surface and learn exactly what’s happening inside your pet’s body. When we can pinpoint the problem quickly, we can address it in a timely manner, greatly improving the chances of a positive outcome. At Carmel Mountain Ranch Veterinary Hospital, we have access to a wide range of routine and advanced diagnostic tools which help us to better manage the ongoing health of our patients.

Learning that your pet needs surgery can be a frightening time. You want to be sure that your companion will be safe, comfortable and receive the best possible care. At Carmel Mountain Ranch, we understand that while surgery may be second nature to us, it’s not something that you and your pet have to deal with very often, which can make it a stressful experience for you both. That’s why we work hard to make sure that every surgery performed in our hospital is as positive and stress-free an experience as possible. Our doctors are experienced in a variety of surgical services, and always adhere to the strictest standards of safety and care. Whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or something more obscure and complex, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your cherished companion.

Does your pet have bad breath? This could be a sign that something is wrong with their dental health. In fact, unless you’re regularly brushing your pet’s teeth and bringing them in for professional dental care, chances are your companion is suffering from plaque and tartar buildup, which could eventually lead to dental disease. At Carmel Mountain Ranch Veterinary Hospital, we take the oral health of our patients seriously. We offer all of the professional pet dentistry services you need to help your pet achieve a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums, from routine cleanings and polishings to the treatment and management of existing dental conditions. We’ll even work with you to show you ways that you can help keep your pet’s mouth clean year-round, in between vet visits. Together we’ll have your companion smiling for many years to come!

Behavioral Counseling

While we certainly consider our pets to be a part of the family, they are animals first, which means they sometimes exhibit behavior that is unbecoming. Bad behavior can make it difficult to form that important bond with your pet, and can stand in the way of you both getting mutual benefit out of your relationship. If you’re struggling with behavior problems, Carmel Mountain Ranch Veterinary Hospital can help. We’re experienced in all aspects of animal behavior and know how to get to the bottom of what’s causing your pet to act out. Through hard work, patience and the application of proven behavior modification techniques, we can have your pet acting like the balanced, well behaved member of the family we know they’re capable of being. Let’s work together to help your animal companion overcome that bad behavior once and for all.
