I was a first-time dog owner and they have always been patient and kind. The staff and vets are knowledgeable and friendly and available on quick notice.
Just awesome. Dr. Waikart called me in the evening to follow up with some additional results when my cat had ingested strings of a mask. Very thorough and an abundance of care and information for the pet owner. Will happy come back whenever my girl needs something.
I’ve had vets all over the country, and Montecito Pet Hospital is by far my favorite. It’s been a whole year since we’ve come in due to the pandemic and our main doctor remembered our pets, their personalities and dynamics, and was truly curious about their experiences through this time.
