Our receptionist team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability, including Saturday morning appointments and same day appointment.

We offer curbside assistance for our elderly and disabled clients and offer handicap parking.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, bee sting reaction, Sago Palm ingestion and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. 

Types of Pets Seen

We at Pet Health Center of La Jolla, care for all breeds of dogs and cats, and specialize in those more "difficult" and temperamental patients. We may or may not bribe them with baby food!


Pet Health Center of La Jolla offers senior citizen and military discounts. Inform us at your first visit that you are a service member so that we can apply your discount to the current as well as future appointments.
