About The Pet Hospital of Penasquitos

The Pet Hospital of Penasquitos is a full-service small animal veterinary hospital dedicated to providing the very best for animals of any shape and size. Dr. Boyer, Dr. Mendez, and their team share a love for dogs, cats, and exotics such as reptiles, avians, and pocket pets. We are conveniently located off highway 56, Rancho Penasquitos Blvd and Carmel Mountain Rd, in the heart of Rancho Penasquitos.

Don't let our size fool you. Only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals in the U.S. are AAHA accredited. We may be small, but our hospital has been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence by the American Animal Hospital Association, which means we hold ourselves to a higher standard of care.

AAHA-The Standard of Veterinary Excellence

We are an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. Only 12-15% (about 3,600) of hospitals have gone through the accreditation evaluation process by the American Animal Hospital Association. Accreditation by AAHA means we have been evaluated on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence. That means we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Pets are our passion. And keeping them healthy is our #1 priority. Here, we strive to deliver excellent care for pets. Because your pets deserve nothing less. 

Dr. Boyer is also a specialist in reptiles and amphibians. Our commitment to you is to provide quality, collaborative veterinary care throughout the life of your pet. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in preventive care for young, healthy pets, early detection, and treatment of disease as your pet ages, with complete medical and surgical care as necessary during the lifetime of your dog, cat, and exotic pets.

If we can't provide the care your pet needs we will not hesitate to refer you to a board certified specialist who can provide the care your pet requires. We appreciate the role your pet plays in your family and we are dedicated to be your partner in your pet's health care.
