An important message for our valued clients

WE ARE STILL OPEN. Veterinary medicine is an “essential service” during the current stay at home order and we will be here for our patients and clients in their time of need.

To protect you and our staff, we are implementing new safety procedures, as detailed below:

  • The public will not be allowed inside our facilities. When you arrive, please call our front desk to initiate your visit. For our La Mesa hospital call 619-462-4800. For Chula Vista call 619-591-4802. All paperwork will be sent to your smartphone (check in form, approval forms, discharge forms, etc).
  • Your pet will be treated and our doctors and nurses will communicate with you by phone after the examination and treatment.
  • We ask that you remain in your car in our parking lot, or within a 30 minute drive of the facility for pick up of your pet.

We care deeply about the health and safety of you, your animals and our medical staff. Thank you for your understanding as we all band together to get through this situation.

The Pet Emergency & Specialty Centers


The Pet Emergency & Specialty Center of San Diego is available when you need us. Both of our hospitals have emergency doctors on site 24/7 providing the highest level of personalized and compassionate care for your pet. We know your pet is an important member of your family and deserves the best possible medical care.
