HARBOR VETERINARY HOSPITAL HAS MOVED TO OUR NEW LOCATION NEAR STAPLES AND WEST MARINE ON 17TH AVENUE

After 22 years in our original location we have moved the practice to 2450 17th Avenue Suite 125. 

We are now located  on the ground floor of the two story building right next to Staples and West Marine on the corner of 17th and Soquel Avenues.  

We now have greatly improved parking and a shiny new hospital with the same friendly helpful staff and experienced doctors.

Harbor Veterinary Hospital is a full service animal hospital providing comprehensive healthcare services to dogs and cats in Santa Cruz County and the surrounding areas. We are conveniently located in mid county, close to the Hwy 1 Soquel Avenue/Soquel Drive and 41st Avenue exits. Our clients bring their pets to us from Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, the San Lorenzo Valley, Felton, Boulder Creek, Bonny Doon, Capitola, Soquel, Aptos, Watsonville and even from San Jose, Salinas and Monterey. Our veterinarians offer a wide variety of medical, surgical and dental services.  

Our veterinary hospital strives to provide the highest standard of care for your pet. Our facility has the equipment to provide digital x-rays, dental care, general surgery, spay/neuter surgery and diagnostics for dog and cat health problems.  We have a twice daily courier service to send samples to the IDEXX laboratory for blood  and urine testing, and  to the VDX laboratory for cytologies and biopsies.We can obtain specialist consultations on x-rays on an emergency or routine basis.  

If your pet's problem is outside the scope of our practice, or even if you just feel that you want a second opinion on a complicated or serious condition, we offer referral to several specialty practices in our area or to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at UC Davis.  Through our referral colleagues we can provide you with access to specialists in cardiology, dermatology, dentistry, internal medicine, surgery, neurology, oncology and physical therapy/rehabilitation.   Many of our clients also consult with alternative practitioners and we are wlling to share our patients with those doctors.

At Harbor Veterinary Hospital we are committed to providing quality care at every stage of your pet's life.  We provide preventative care tailored to your pet's lifestyle, and recommend a comprehensive vaccine schedule that maximizes protection while minimizing the vaccines that your pet will receive each year and throughout life.
