Care and Comfort Veterinary Hospital offers comprehensive treatment ranging from complete physical examinations to complex surgery in our state-of-the-art facility.
We provide veterinary services for dogs and cats. Following is a list of some of the services offered at our hospital.
Complete Physical Examinations - We offer appointments with the veterinarian of your choice 6 days a week. The doctor will provide a written treatment plan with financial estimates before any procedures, surgeries or therapy is started on your pet. In this way, you will be able to make an educated choice on what are the best treatment needs and your financial options.
Safe Anesthesia & Surgery - We use modern inhalant anesthetics to make anesthesia as safe as possible for your pet. Your pet will be observed by a veterinary anesthetic technician, using the latest in monitoring technology including pulse oximetry (measuring oxygen levels in the bloodstream), EKG, carbon dioxide levels, and blood pressure monitoring on every anesthetized animal to ensure your pets' safe anesthesia. Your pet will also be warmed by a forced air warming blanket during the entire procedure which helps them recuperate quickly. Our high tech surgical suite provides the proper environment for the specialized and highly technical surgeries our veterinarians perform.
Low Cost Spay/Neuter - Care & Comfort Veterinary Hospital proudly contracts with the San Diego County Animal Shelter and Spay Neuter Action Project (SNAP) to provide charitable low cost spay and neuter services. Every year we have donated over $51,000 worth of low cost services to pet owners of San Diego County through this program. Pet overpopulation is a serious problem, and this is our small way to help.
Dentistry - is a very important part of your pet's overall health care. We use Midmark dental machines to ultrasonically scale your pets' teeth and take dental x-rays to provide the best dental care possible. For more information visit our Dental Care page.

We also contract with Antech Diagnositics veterinary laboratory to send many of our blood and tissue samples for overnight results.
Digital Radiology and Ultrasound - Our digital x-ray and ultrasound machines allow us to see internal organs in great detail for the highest quality of imaging. These tools are vital aids to help the doctors make an accurate diagnosis and best treatment plans for your ill pet.

Pet ID's and Microchipping - A microchip is a small device that can be easily inserted under your pet's skin. It is as quick and painless as a vaccine. The owner's information is registered with a national database, and if a lost pet is found, the owner can be contacted. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have scanners that read the microchip number and allow the owner to be identified.
