Dental CareDespite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease. […]

It reduces damaging inflammation thereby helping to minimize pain and increasing healing potential. It can help patients with a variety of conditions ranging from painful arthritis to ear infections and wound healing. Please call us for more […]

Our Clients Love Us!
The Capitola Veterinary Hospital really came through for us. Our dog was really in distress and they took us in when three other vets would not see him, including his regular vet (no more). Becca worked us into the schedule. Victoria took great care of Max and the doctor followed up very quickly. How happy are we with CVA? As happy as you can be when your pet is lovingly cared for in the manner they provided. And, by the way, I have been charged much much more for much less in terms of service and meds. Even with an Emergency visit, CVA was still very, very reasonable. Excellent staff, techs and docs. I highly recommend CVA.
We just adopted a puppy from Santa Cruz Animal Services. I found Capitola Veterinary Hospital on the list of providers who give a free first time office visit and cross - checked with Yelp. I must say that CVH staff is professional and kind, and Dr. May was indeed the one who checked our puppy out. Nothing bad to say about him. I like him! My pup adores him. An interesting sidebar to the business is its focus on being green and using "natural" (I'm not sure that's what it's called.) remedies in addition to traditional medicine. Another bonus is that there is no fishing around for additional revenues by pushing unnecessary tests and services. 5 wags of the tail for this one.
