Nose-to-Tail Wellness Exams for Dogs & Cats in San Diego

Contrary to popular belief, routine vet exams aren’t just "nice to haves." These visits can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier and happier life by giving you the tools to catch health problems early. Our vet will start a detailed check at the nose and end at the tail.

Cat & Dog Vaccinations in San Diego

Preventive health care is key to helping your cat or dog live a happy and healthy life. Our state-licensed veterinarians discuss the best vaccination options for your cat or dog at each different life stage. Vaccinations for your dog or cat can be administered during your next appointment! Book your appointment today.

Microchipping in San Diego

Our San Diego veterinary team is equipped to implant the microchips into your dog or cat and also scan for them. Microchips are a great backup option to pet identification in the case your pet escapes, despite your best efforts, and the collar comes off. Microchips are a small chip, about the size of a grain of rice, that gets implanted just under the skin of your pet. These microchips can help bring your pet back home.

Spay/Neuter in San Diego

Get your dog or cat spayed or neutered at your neighborhood San Diego Petco's veterinary clinic. Our team provides quality care to ensure the safety of your dog or cat during this procedure. Discuss with your veterinarian about the optimal time to have your cat or dog spayed or neutered.

Dental Cleaning in San Diego

Regular dental care is important to maintain your pet's health. Our San Diego veterinary team can provide your cat or dog dental cleanings and check for signs of periodontal disease. Discuss with your veterinarian at your neighborhood Petco about your options for cat or dog teeth cleanings.
