One Saturday morning our little puppy got sick.We called everywhere and were unable to get an appointment. Even the Vet Emergency Rooms were at capacity and wouldn't see our puppy.Tierrasanta Veterinary Hospital made an exception and saw our puppy right away without an appointment.They have been kind, patient, and much more affordable than other vets we've visited.They are now our go to vet and we're so happy to have found them.

The Dr and Staff are top notch. They take the time to explain any questions. They care and are so respectful. After a few unpleasant experiences trying to establish vet care in San Diego, after a military cross country move, I read a military spouse post on this establishment. I couldn’t be more grateful. We had a unique situation with our dog and it went from being stressful to knowing we were in good hands. This establishment is the vet care you want at a very affordable price.

    As early as I can remember, I had always had an immense connection and love for all animals, thanks to my mother. I've been an employee at Tierrasanta Veterinary Hospital since 1999. Over the course of my years at the hospital, I have worn many hats and had many titles. I am proud to say that I have been able to help many, many animals and clients over the years and I hope to help many more in the future.

  • My pets are always first and are always provided the best care. And my babies love coming here. I 100% recommend bringing your fur babies here because you’ll be rest assured they are taken care of. I boarded them here and they had a great time and were cared for so well.

  • Being new to the area we didn’t know where to start with finding a vet for our new rescue dog. So happy we decided on Tierrasanta Vet Hospital. We definitely came to the right place. Great, caring, transparent staff.

    - Crysta Lynch
  • I really liked this place because they thoroughly examined my dog and when they found ou that she needed oral surgery the vet explained everything in detail and was very kind and supportive throughout the whole process and the staff even called several times to let me know how my dog was doing and how well the surgery went. Overall, I highly recommend this place

  • As always, our recent experience was great. The doctor and all of the staff treat us like family and both our dogs feel very comfortable there. Well, mostly comfortable. They always look forward to going to the doctor, though. They know there will be love and treats and very little hurt, if any. I love Tierrasanta Veterinary Hospital!
