When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Pet Health Center of La Jolla in La Jolla CA have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient. Call 858-945-4565 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.
Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam where Dr. John Morizi will check the health of your pet from nose to tail. This is an excellent opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have about your pet's health, behavior, and the inevitable aging process. We carry a full line of prescription diets that can be used to prevent certain diseases and aging processes as well as therapeutically to treat existing conditions. Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Dr. Morizi can still work with whatever information you have. In some circumstances, Dr. Morizi will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
