The veterinarians at Tamarac Animal Clinic like to say, "We treat your animal like our own." They must be very dedicated pet owners indeed, for they see to every dental and health-related need of the pets that come through their door. They scrub teeth and gums, examine glands and organs, and test for signs of and contributors to health risks. They also inure their furry patients against particularly malicious diseases with vaccinations. They even provide complementary fecal exams, a necessary duty that most owners can't complete themselves because they're laughing too hard at the word duty.
During his days at a pet emergency clinic, veterinarian Dr. Simon Seskus learned how to keep his cool while expertly healing animals. Now as the owner of Dr. Simon's Pet Clinic - previously known as East Oakland Pet Hospital, a community fixture for more than 20 years - Dr. Simon displays this calm demeanor as he works with cats and dogs. Dr. Simon and his staff provide a full range of health care services for pets, including wellness visits, nutritional counseling, vaccinations, surgeries, dental care, flea and tick control, and other routine care.
The certified dog trainers at Canine Dimensions have dog obedience down to a science. They don't use clickers or painful collars; instead, they use familiar objects and teach dogs inside their owners' homes in obedience rehabilitations for any dog older than 7 weeks old. By working on the dog's home turf, they keep them comfortable while teaching them not to pull on the leash, growl at guests, or use slang words their owners don’t understand. For families uninterested in at-home training, Canine Dimensions offers 10-day board and train programs and overnight boarding inside the trainer’s home, where they exercise, play, and learn within a home environment.
When owners drop their pets off for boarding or grooming at Pets Playground, they do so comforted by the knowledge that they're leaving their furry friends with people who love animals as much as they do. As a grooming school, Pets Playground is staffed by both experienced groomers and enthusiastic animal lovers looking to start a career in the grooming industry. Its grooming services cover most breeds of cats and dogs, even canines 70 pounds and heavier, and its boarding services treat each pet to a cageless experience with ample time in an indoor play area to socialize and enjoy a leisurely round of hopscotch.
Inside their 4,200-square-foot facility, Animal Medical Center's staff strives to treat furry friends with the same care and love showered on them by their owners. Using ultrasound, therapeutic laser therapy, and optional holistic medicine, a team of compassionate vets works to keep pets hale and healthy. Their pharmacy makes things easy for owners, who can opt to pick up their pets' meds on site or have them mailed. In addition, an emergency care clinic provides urgent help and a groomer bathes and beautifies healthy cats and dogs.
If a kitten is due for its first vaccines, an escape-artist pup needs microchipping, or a bunny is suffering from an insufficiently twitchy nose, the compassionate veterinarians at Nob Hill Animal Clinic can help. They also keep furry patients healthy with regular check-ups and a slate of diagnostic tests. Pet owners don't need to leave the clinic for more specialized services: it's outfitted with its own lab, emergency and radiology equipment, and surgical facility, and the doctors are even trained in animal dentistry.
