Alameda Pet Hospital


Compassionate Care For Pets In Alameda • Karen Buchinger, DVM At Alameda Pet Hospital we provide compassonate, professional veterinary care for both you and your pet. We strive to provide high quality medical guidance to educate you about pet care for the entire life of your pet, and we try to treat your pet as if it were our own. Do you have a fearful feline? Do you have a cat that never gets a checkup because they freak out when they go to the vet? If so, please consider making an appointment with us on the first Tuesday evening of the month. Dr. Granzow will be available from 6 to 8 pm for cats-only appointments. We hope it will help frightened cats feel more relaxed at our office if there are no dogs near them. When in a calm environment and with gentle handling, most cats will cooperate for examinations, minor procedures like blood collection, and even wound treatment. Please give us a call for a first-Tuesday-of-the-month evening appointment. We’d love to have the opportunity to provide great healthcare for your fearful feline. Services: EXAMINATIONS Scheduled examinations with a veterinarian take place weekdays from 9am–noon and from 3pm–6pm. We’re open late on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so exams on those days are scheduled until 8pm. (Surgeries and dental procedures are performed from noon–3pm.) VACCINATIONS Vaccine protocols are individualized for each cat and dog and are discussed at the time of examination in regard to risk versus benefit. Each pet vaccinated at APH is first examined to ensure that they are healthy enough to be vaccinated. DIAGNOSTICS As a full-service pet hospital, we perform x-rays, blood tests, urinalyses, and other needed evaluations in-house. We also have access to specialized laboratories and CT/MRI facilities for cases where advanced diagnostics are needed. SURGERY Our veterinarians perform many types of surgeries, including spays, neuters, tumor removal, and biopsies. Orthopedic and more complicated procedures are performed by board-certified surgeons who work on-site on an as-needed basis. DENTISTRY We perform dental cleanings for dogs and cats with our high frequency water scaler and high speed polisher. During the procedure each pet is evaluated for gum health and tooth integrity. We also perform dental x-rays, extractions, and oral surgery as needed. REFERRALS We have long-established relationships with many board-certified veterinary specialists in the Bay Area, including acupuncturists, internists, oncologists, and ophthalmologists, as well as other specialties. We will help arrange a referral based on a pet’s needs. PHARMACY Our in-house pharmacy is stocked to meet the medical needs of our patients, and includes an ample supply of over-the-counter products to help with parasite control and grooming needs. In addition, we carry prescription diet food for dogs and cats. BOARDING We board dogs, cats, and occasionally rabbits for our existing clients. Our kennel assistants take each dog to our fenced yard for playtime twice daily. To be accepted for boarding, pets must be current on vaccinations, neutered, and pass a temperament test to ensure that they will be comfortable in the kennel environment.

very helpful

First time here, very helpful. They wanted to take the cheapest route first before any other extensive treatments for my German Shepard. They did not pressure us to do anything we weren't comfortable with (money wise) I definitely would go back for more treatments.

Such a great facility!

My partner and I took our dog Guacamole in for dental surgery recently, and we LOVED the facility and the staff at Alameda Pet Hospital. APH was recommended to us by a lesbian friend who lives in Alameda who had had a similar procedure for her old dog, but our friend neglected to mention that this place is full of awesome women and queers! What an awesome discovery :) We love to support community businesses like this, especially when all the staff is so sweet, caring, and involved. Thank you, we will definitely be back!!
