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.
