No two pets are exactly alike, and we don’t believe in treating them as such. You can expect individualized attention and treatment every time you pay a visit to our animal hospital. You can learn all about our veterinary team and the services we provide by looking through our website and making yourself at home. Better yet, stop by and say hello! We would love to meet you.
I decided to go to Poway Animal Hospital after some traumatizing experiences at another vet. I was drawn to PAH due to the location to my dog’s day care. Upon first appointment I knew PAH and Dr. Tracy Smith were EXACTLY what we needed. Dr Tracy Smith has a heart for pets and is one of the most compassionate soul’s I’ve ever met. The staff is supportive, kind and knowledgeable. The follow up after treatment is incredible (they will even text a photo). The community of Poway and surrounding around are so fortunate to have PAH and Dr. Tracy Smith.
Thank you for all that you do!
I originally went to Poway Animal Hospital due to a recommendation from another vet in Poway. That doctor sent me there because they were doing specialized procedures needed by my dog at that time. Years later, I have continued with the doctors and staff at the Poway Animal Hospital because of their skills, demeanor and apparent love for all animals and their owners.
I can’t say enough about the outstanding and compassionate care that the veterinarians and staff provide at Poway Animal Hospital. We’ve been bringing our cats here since we moved to the area 9 years ago. Dr. Teague took outstanding care of our two seniors until they passed two years ago. Now we have two new Egyptian Mau youngsters and are getting the same great care from Dr. Smith as well. I recommend PAH to family and friends. My daughter takes her cats here now too.
The Vets & the rest of the staff at Poway Animal Hospital have always provided the most personable, knowledgeable, courteous & compassionate services to both myself & the other very important members of my family, my pets. I’ve been entrusting the care of my cats to them for the past 20 + years that I’ve lived in SD & will continue to do so as long as I live anywhere in the San Diego vicinity. I can’t sing their praises enough & would recommend Poway Animal Hospital to any of my friends & acquaintances.
