UltrasoundAlthough humans and animals are different in many ways, some advances in human medicine are also very useful for veterinary patients. One of these advances, diagnostic ultrasound, has proven to be a powerful tool in veterinary medicine. As a practice, one of our goals is to offer state-of-the-art medicine and diagnostic testing; so we are...

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....

Our Clients Love Us!
This place and their staff are worth every penny! They have the most compassionate, responsive, informative, thoughtful, and careful veterinarians and technicians. We have had the pleasure of bringing our cat and dog to doctors Mitchner, Volant, and May and would highly recommend all three! (Apologies for any spelling errors.) They are so gentle with our pets and always work with us to make sure we understand costs, procedures, and the reasons behind certain health/vaccination choices. The separate entrances and waiting areas for cats and dogs really helps our cat feel safe! And the reserved patient parking always helps me breathe easier on appointment day. We are moving across the country in a month and are so sad to have to leave this hospital behind! It's going to be one heck of a challenge finding such an overall stellar staff again. Thank you all so much for everything that you do! We couldn't be more grateful! (Colby and Hamilton say, "hello and thank you for keeping us healthy!")
Our dogs have gone here for almost two years and we have received amazing care. They are always thorough and informative in everything they do. They really talk us through each step of any treatment and even call a few days later to see how they are doing. What makes this place amazing though isn't the level of care. You find a good vet and there are things you expect an things that they are "supposed to do" and they go above and beyond in my mind. There are certain things not required to care for a dog, yes you expect some level of compassion. The same sort that you would get from a doctor for yourself or a family member. We had to put one of our dogs down about a month ago, It was a very hard time for our entire family. Capitola Veterinary Hospital made the experience itslef as comfortable as something like this could possibly be, they were kind and caring. We left and I appreciated all they did and did not expect much more from them, however I was completely blown away. The next day as I was dealing with a very hard day at home, my first without my beloved Storm around there was a knock at the door. It was a florist delivery, as I took the flowers I assumed it was from my mom or mother in law. I opened the card and it was from the vet. The card expressed their condolences for the loss in our family, I was brought to tears and just completely awe struck. Then a few days later we got a card in the mail, it was to let us know that a donation had been made in Storm's name to the buttercup foundation. There were hand written notes from all of the staff as well as the vet herself. They truly understood that we had lost a family member and were so caring and supportive. They didn't have to do any of this, and I am so glad that we are giving our business to people that love animals as much as we do. Dear Capitola Veterinary Hospital Staff, Thank you so much for being so kind to our family, and for the endless expressions of support during a difficult time. There are no words that can express how grateful we are. You touched our hearts and we will never forget all of your kind gestures. Warm Hugs, The Spencer Family
