Family Pet Hospital is an established, full-service hospital that offers high quality medicine, surgery and dentistry for dogs, cats, small mammals, birds and reptiles. We perform many routine surgeries such as spays, neuters and declaws, as well as many orthopedic, corrective, cosmetic and other specialized soft tissue surgeries. We opened in 1998 with the principal of providing quality healthcare while building lasting relationships. We believe that veterinary medicine starts with a foundation in relationships. The better you know how a family interacts with their companion the better you can understand behavior problems, health issues and sometimes the secret of the missing shoe!
All exams start off with proper communication and if your exam is not communicated well then so many things can be misinterpreted or missed and that's where our level of care begins. Each one of our staff members goes through internal continuing education every week. Whether it be how to better communicate, where we went wrong and how can we fix it, to intestinal parasites, dentistry, dermatology, immunology and so much more. We strive to give you the best experience we possibly can , but of course we can not do that without the fundamental love of animals. We take pride in our staff members and some have been with us for over 10 years. The average number of pets per staff member is 5! Most of these furry friends have been rescues off the street. Sometimes we forget the large number of rescue animals that need help in San Antonio. Family Pet Hospital does its best to help where it can and we work extensively with Alamo Rescue Friends and Gold Ribbon Rescue. We also work with groups such as Guide Dogs for the Blind ,Train a Dog Save a Warrior, and the occasional deer and wildlife rescue. We do our best to spread our love of animals wherever we can. We hope that you will allow us to show you the difference in our hospital and we only ask one thing in return, be ready to make a relationship that lasts!!
