​​​​​​​Dental Care

We know how important dental health is to your pet’s overall well-being. Untreated tartar and gingivitis can lead to serious complications, including loss of appetite and even periodontal disease—and not to mention icky breath! To prevent such conditions, we offer dental chews, toothpaste, and toothbrushes for your furry friends. However, if your pet should develop any dental problems, our practice is fully equipped to provide comprehensive dental care, including tooth extraction. With our expert dental services, we work to make sure your pet maintains optimal oral health and a happy, pain-free life!

At Animal Hospital of Palo Alto, we rely on advanced diagnostic tools to ensure the best possible care for your pet. 

In-House Laboratory
We’re equipped with an in-house laboratory, allowing us to quickly and accurately diagnose your pet’s health issues. 

Our advanced ultrasound imaging technique is a non-invasive, painless way to get a detailed look at your pet’s internal organs using sound waves. With this technique, a computer-generated image is generated, allowing us to accurately evaluate your pet’s internal structure, identify any abnormalities or lesions, and diagnose potential health issues. 

X-rays, also known as radiographs, are a widely used and highly effective diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine, as they provide immediate and clear images of your pet’s bones and internal organs. These images can be manipulated to provide a more detailed view, leading to faster and more accurate diagnoses. If your pet requires specialized care, we work closely with a network of exceptional specialty veterinarians, including dermatologists, dentists, surgeons, ophthalmologists, cardiologists, oncologists, neurologists, and internists. 

​​​​​​​Surgical Procedures

Our team of skilled and experienced veterinarians offers a range of surgical procedures to help keep your pet healthy and happy. From spays and neuters to mass removals, ear hematomas, wound and abscess repairs, and more, we’re equipped to handle a variety of surgeries. We do recommend scheduling procedures in advance, though we understand that emergencies can arise, and are happy to accommodate patients in need whenever possible!


We offer a professional bathing service to help keep your furry companion looking and feeling their best. Our experienced staff uses only high-quality, pet-friendly shampoos and conditioners to ensure that your pet's coat is clean, healthy, and shiny. We'll also trim your pet's nails, clean their ears, and brush their teeth if needed.

​​​​​​​Anal Gland Expression

We offer anal gland expression as a service for your pet’s comfort and health. Anal glands are small sacs located near your pet’s anus that can become impacted and cause discomfort or infection if not properly emptied. Our trained staff can safely and gently express your pet’s anal glands to help alleviate any discomfort and prevent any potential issues from arising. If you notice your pet licking or scooting, please schedule an appointment with us to have their anal glands checked.
