We love CSAH! Dr. Contreras is our favorite. When my cat passed a couple of years ago and he was caring for him, he called to express his condolences. We are currently working on getting another one of our kitties healthy again, and he has been incredible. He is always so caring and informative.If you're looking for a great place to take your fur babies, this is the place! The rest of the staff is amazing, too!

"Do Your Eyes Water From the Noxious Fumes Emanating Out of Your Pet's Mouth? Have You Looked in your Pet's Mouth, Lately? You May be Surprised by What You See!Proper dental care contributes to the good health of your pet. Bad breath, inflamed, bleeding gums, discolored, loose or missing teeth are signs that your pet has dental disease. Left untreated, dental disease can weaken your pet's liver, kidneys and heart. This additional stress can affect your pet's health and shorten life expectancy.Beginning on January 1, 2017 and ending March 31, 2017, we are offering a $30.00 discount off the cost of your pet's dental cleaning. All pet's must be current on an annual physical exam and vaccinations. A blood panel is required to assure the safety of anesthesia. This panel can be done the day of the dental cleaning. If Well Pet lab tests have been done within the past 3 months, no additional blood testing will be required."
