Capitola Veterinary Hospital

Winter 2016-2017

Holiday Closures 

To help our clients prepare for the holiday season, we are announcing our hospital’s holiday hours for this year.  We will be closed on December 24th and 25th in observance of Christmas.  In addition, we will have limited hours on December 31st and will be closing at 4pm.

Happy Holidays!

Tick coverage for cats is here!

Capitola Veterinary Hospital now carries Feline Bravecto!  This topically applied flea and tick preventative lasts for 3 months and is available for all cats 6 months of age and older.  It controls all stages of the flea life cycle and protects against two species of ticks, the black-legged tick and the American dog tick.  Please give us a call for more details!

Being a locally owned business, Capitola Veterinary Hospital relies a lot upon referrals from our current clients.  As a reward, we offer a $40 credit on existing clients’ accounts when their friends or family come in for their first visit!

We’ve Been Featured!

Capitola Veterinary Hospital is proud to be a locally owned and operated business serving our community and a longstanding member of Think Local First.  In the Santa Cruz area, there are over a ½ dozen veterinary hospitals that are corporate owned.  As such, only a small portion of every dollar spent at these hospitals stays within our local community whereas a much larger percentage of every dollar spent in a local business stays in the community.  The Aptos Times has published an article on our hospital in its November issue.  Read it here to learn a little more about us and how we value our place in our community.

Winter Dental Special

It’s almost time for our winter dental special!  Starting December 2016 and running through March 2017, all patients with a current annual exam are eligible for this $109 discount on our comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment (COHAT) procedure.  

Some of what’s included in our dental procedures are:

  • Complete DIGITAL x-rays of every tooth.  These are much faster, safer, and better quality than film x-rays and they allow us to examine the tooth root where disease and infection can hide.
  • 3 member team for monitoring
  • Ultrasonic scaling and high speed polishing
  • When necessary, extractions are performed by the doctor only.  Sites are closed using absorbable sutures and pain medications are sent home.

85% of pets have dental disease by the time they are 3 years old.  There are many warning signs to look for, including pawing at the mouth, bad breath, and difficulty chewing.

Please be aware that we do not recommend “anesthesia free” dental procedures.  They are much less effective and can be dangerous for your pet.

Please call us for more details at 831-476-7387, email us at, or visit our website.

**This offer cannot be combined with any other offer or discount.**
