Vista Pet Hospital

At Palomar Animal Hospital, we’ve seen many changes and improvements over the years – each one of them an opportunity to better serve our clients and patients. Yet while our physical facility and list of treatment options may have changed, the one thing that has remained constant is the exceptional care and outstanding service we provide. We treat each and every person and pet that walks through our doors as if they were our most valued asset because we believe that personal attention is what makes all the difference in veterinary care.

We are a full service small animal hospital, serving the health care needs of just about all manner of household pets, including dogs, cats and pocket pets to birds, reptiles and exotics. Whether your best friend happens to be covered in fur, feathers or scales, if they’re special to you, they’re special to us! From routine wellness care and preventative medicine to advanced diagnostics and critical care, we’re fully prepared to manage your pet’s health, providing the best opportunity at a long, healthy and happy life.

Our hospital offers a warm, welcoming environment for both people and pets, with all the little touches that make visits with us a positive experience. Whether it’s an extra belly rub, a soft blanket to provide comfort, the soothing music playing in the background or the gentle touch of our experienced staff – we know how to make even the most anxious pet feel at ease.

At Palomar Animal Hospital, we take a collaborative approach to veterinary care. As your pet’s caregiver, you are his or her greatest advocate and we consider you to be an important part of the team. That’s why we always take the time to answer your questions, discuss your concerns and explain all of your options to you. We want you to feel confident about your pet’s treatment and care and to feel comfortable turning to us for all of your animal health care needs.

Beyond the services we offer to our valued clients and patients, the team at Palomar Animal Hospital also feels strongly about giving back to the community as much as we can. We work closely with local rescue groups, offering discounted services for the pets they have saved and provide free adoption exams to all pets adopted from local shelters. We also work with the San Diego House Rabbit Society to perform low cost spay and neuter procedures.

Our hospital is conveniently open 7 days a week to provide consistency of care for your pet. If you’re new to the Vista area, recently welcomed a new animal member to your family, or you’re just looking for an experienced vet that will provide your pet with the exceptional care he or she deserves, look no further than Palomar Animal Hospital.
Stop by any time – we can’t wait to meet you!

Pet Wellness Care

In addition to our adult pet wellness checkups, our pet hospital also provides specialized senior pet care and puppy/kitten care. This includes the puppy/kitten shot series to protect young pets from highly contagious and potentially deadly diseases. As your pet ages, our specialized senior care programs address common age-related health concerns such as mobility restrictions and incontinence with compassionate care. From your pet’s first months through an active adulthood and into his golden years, our veterinarian is with you and your pet each step of the way.

Even with the best wellness care, Handel understands that illnesses and accidental injuries can happen. Common symptoms of pet health problems include vomiting or diarrhea for more than 24 hours, lethargy, and unwillingness to eat food. Seizures or loss of consciousness require immediate urgent care. Your pet does not need to be a current patient in order to receive urgent or emergency care at our veterinary hospital. We request that you give us a call on the way in so our veterinary team will be ready to assist upon your arrival. Our emergency veterinarian is ready to treat a wide variety of pet health concerns including illnesses, skin conditions/allergies, orthopedic injuries, and intestinal distress. When an emergency strikes, every second matters. Our pet hospital offers cutting edge technology and diagnostic exams for prompt, precise results and immediate treatment.

Committed to Excellence!

Our animal hospital is warm and welcoming for pets and children of all ages. We are a family-friendly pet hospital committed to excellence in all that we do. Pet care education is an important part of our mission. Our veterinarian works closely with all pet owners to ensure they have the resources they need to provide the best possible care for their pets. We are always happy to take extra time to answer your questions.

We look forward to welcoming your pet into our animal family. Contact Palomar Animal Hospital today at (760) 727-7622 to schedule your pet's appointment!
