Wellness Care

Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of bi-annual physical wellness examinations. Thorough check-ups and preventative care can help identify serious health problems early on when they can be more readily managed. In addition, regular vaccinations, heartworm and fecal parasite testing and flea and tick control play vital roles in ensuring the long-term health of your pets. We offer a full line of parasite preventatives (Vectra, Comfortis, Heartgard, Trifexis) to keep you and your family healthy.  




One of the most common reasons we see patients is for skin problems. Allergic skin disease can be both frustrating for pet owners and uncomfortable for pets! Our hospital offers full dermatology services to address the common skin disorders and allergies that afflict your pets. We offer allergy testing, allergy injections, prescription foods for food allergies as well as a wide range of testing and treatments for common skin disorders.




Dental disease can lead to significant oral discomfort as well as heart, kidney and liver problems if left untreated. We offer complete dental services including preventative care (cleaning and oral health assessment), dental x-ray, tooth extraction and oral surgery. Proper dental care requires anesthesia so that the areas of the teeth below the gums can be cleaned and probed for problems and so that the teeth can be properly cleaned and polished. Our brand new state-of-the-art dental machine allows us to perform a wide variety of dental procedures quickly and effectively. 



Diagnostics and Testing

Five Cities Veterinary Hospital offers a full in-house diagnostic lab as well as medical imaging. We offer x-ray, ultrasound and dental x-ray for all your pets’ imaging needs. Our brand new chemistry analyzer, clotting profile analyzer and hematology machine allows us to get blood analysis results within 20 minutes, as opposed to sending them to a lab. This is crucial for patients who are critically ill or require in-hospital monitoring during treatment. Our ability to check clotting profiles in-thouse allows us to offer safer surgery, especially for patients who might be prone to problems with clotting. 



Internal Medicine

Five Cities Veterinary Hospital is well equipped to handle the diagnosis and treatment of medical problems ranging from common ailments like cough, vomiting or diarrhea to endocrine disorders (diabetes, Cushing’s disease, etc). Our on-site diagnostics allow us the ability to address problems in a timely manner ensuring your pet gets the help they need as quickly as possible.  


general surgery

General Surgery

Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. Our fully equipped suite includes gas anesthetic machine, central oxygen, suction, cautery, and complete anesthetic monitoring including blood pressure, pulse oximetry, and EKG. Our heated surgery table helps to ensure your pet remains comfortable and has a quick recovery from anesthesia.


spay and neuter

Spay and Neuter

All spay and neuter packages include surgery, anesthesia, anesthesia monitoring, prescreening lab work, pain medication given at the time of the procedure as well as pain medication to go home, protective collar and suture removal. With pet overpopulation at an all-time high, it is more important than ever to get your pets spayed and neutered! Call (805) 481-5555 for a price quote or email us for more information. 




While we always recommend spay and neuter for our patients, we understand there are circumstances where responsible breeding can take place. For those special families who have decided to undergo the responsibility of breeding their cat or dog, we offer a full range of services including hormone testing, semen analysis, artificial insemination, ultrasonographic evaluation of pregnancy and C-section. We also offer counseling and advice for those families considering entering into breeding so that well-informed decisions can be made.



Puppy and Kitten Packages

At Five Cities Veterinary Hospital, we want to ensure your puppy or kitten gets the best possible start to life and that they grow up healthy and happy! Vaccinations are just one aspect of keeping your puppy or kitten healthy. Regular worming, screening of stool for parasites, heartworm prevention, proper feeding and dealing with behavioral issues come into play as well. To help you make sure your new puppy or kitten gets everything he or she needs, we offer puppy and kitten packages which comprise comprehensive care for your new pet. Package prices vary depending on the age of your puppy or kitten so please contact our office for more information at (805) 481-5555.
