We know that our hospital’s convenient location is a bit tucked away. This gives us peace, quiet and a safe parking lot, but please check the map below or call for directions! We’re across the street from Fry’s, near BellyRubz and Chada Thai. We’re the first right after the bridge if you’re heading east on Via Linda. If you’re heading west, we’re the last driveway on the left before the bridge.
"My American bully had her ears cropped in February and they look amazing. We did the short crop and they are perfect. The post-op was a little rough but we got through it!"
"Got my boy cropped last December and he is now 6mo and they did an amazing job their customer service was amazing and they answered all my questions when I went to pick him up and we’re always willing to work with my schedule to do his follow up appointments"
"My cat was having some issues I call Quartz Animal Hospital and they were able to get me a same day appointment. Very friendly staff. Dr Pluckett was super helpful and explained in depth what might be going on. My cat needed to get on a special food and they recommended that I try it out first before over buying, just in case my cat didn't like it. I am also super thankful because my phone was not working when they were calling to let me know my cat was ready to be picked up. I called once I was off of work after the office was closed and I had to leave a message. They called me back and were able to stay and wait for me at the office. Very good experience for me here!!"
