Local Medical Issues

Several local issues can arise due to the wide open spaces in the south Santa Clara Valley area. Rattlesnake bites happen all too often, especially during the hot summer months. Hikers with their pets are advised to be observant at all times keeping dogs on a leash and should be particularly careful when negotiating fallen logs or boulders and when near rocky outcroppings and ledges where snakes may be hiding or sunning themselves. VCA San Martin Animal Hospital recommends that all pets with a potential exposure to rattlesnakes be vaccinated with a Rattlesnake Vaccine.

A majority of cases seen by our hospital during the summer months involve foxtail removal. Dogs and cats alike are affected. If not removed promptly, foxtails can be extremely dangerous especially if lodged in an eye, mouth, nose, ear or paw. Bring your pet to VCA San Martin Animal Hospital as soon as your pet shows any symptoms of foxtail penetration.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
