Years in Existence
Our Clients Love Us!
Finally...my seemingly endless search for a great vet is over! Dr. River May was amazing with my dog who has never loved his vet visits and has a bit of an attitude problem. He was very patient with us, taking a lot of time to answer any questions I had and really getting to know my dog. He is so knowledgeable and thorough, and I have no doubt that he really has my dog's best interest at heart. The entire staff was so kind and caring, and clearly consisted of true animal lovers. Capitola Veterinary Hospital is just how how a vet should be!
I switched to Capitola Vet when SC Vet Hospital was no longer able to provide the level of care I’d experienced with them for over 20 years. The folks at Capitola Vet have exceeded my every need for caring for my critters (14 yr old lab and 2 yr old cat). They are incredibly thorough, attentive, kind, and supportive. They also do NOT recommend unnecessary and expensive testing or treatment for every little thing that comes up. RB
