The Advanced Care Veterinary Hospital Facilities

Large Enough to Serve You, But Small Enough to Care

We are proud to provide a state-of-the-art pet hospital facility for the highest quality veterinary care available. We are confident that you will feel right at home in our office as we welcome all patients as if they were family. Our hospital is large enough to serve you, but small enough to care.

The hospital was originally constructed in 1999. It was a Pizza Hut restaurant originally but was completely remodeled. We offer the latest in patient/client comfort and technology. We have a state of the art surgery suite, dental unit, digital radiology and digital dental radiography. We offer boarding and sanitary bathing services.  Advanced Care is the only veterinary hospital in Poway that has earned the accreditation of the American Animal Hospital Association. This means that we have been evaluated on over 900 standards by an AAHA consultant that directly affects the care of your pet. Only 15% of veterinary hospitals have earned this distinction. We are proud of this achievement and hold ourselves to this higher standard of care.


If you would like to make an appointment, please contact our office by phone or email. Our office facilitates all communications and appointments are available and welcome, especially for new patients seeking help. We also see emergency patients. These are evaluated immediately by the doctor or trained staff and a determination is made whether life saving intervention needs to take place right away or if the patient is stable enough to be able to wait. “Walk-ins” are welcome, although it facilitates our scheduling and patient flow if you are able to call ahead for an appointment. As long as “walk-in” clients are patient and respectful, we will do everything we can to see you and your pet in a timely manner. Drop-off appointments are always available, and we are open at 7AM weekdays to accomodate owners that need to get to work. 


We will do everything we can to help you afford the treatment your pet needs. Forms of payment accepted by the office are check, cash, or any major credit card. We also offer Care Credit Veterinary Financing. For information about Care Credit and to get pre-approved for veterinary financing in about 5 minutes, go to

There is no interest financing on a variety of plans.

Pet Insurance

The cost of veterinary care is a huge bargain compared to what comparable services cost in human medicine. Still, pet owners are expected to pay for medical care “out of pocket” which can create unexpected financial burdens. We are a strong supporter of pet insurance, and believe all pet owners should consider pet insurance to help defray the cost of veterinary medical care. See Pet Insurance Review to compare plans.


If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice. We ask for this advance notice so that we can offer this appointment to another patient.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our facility for your veterinary care.
