Oh, what is the matter with poor Puggy-Wug?
Pet him and kiss him and give him a hug.
Run and fetch him a suitable drug.
Wrap him up tenderly all in a rug.
That is the way to cure Puggy-Wug

Winston Churchill

 Of all the things I miss from veterinary practice, puppy breath is one of the most fond memories!  ~ Dr. Tom Cat                                             


I have used the Veterinary Hospital at UC Davis for many years and
cannot say enough good about it. Regardless of what you may hear, the
service is excellent and usually "state-of-the-art". They often know
about and perform procedures that local Vets may not know about or
are reluctant to do. People bring their pets to Davis from all over

the US. Their rates are actually lower than Marin and, because your
dog is first examined by veterinary interns and then by a teaching
Vet who may be a world expert, you get at least two opinions and
often more. Davis will work with your local doctor via telephone,
fax and online for continuing or follow-up activity. They may do
the "heavy" work and your local vet picks up from there.
The small animal hospital at Davis may startle you as it is as large
or larger than many human hospitals and has major departments:
oncology, dermatology, cardiology, ophthalmology, dentistry, etc.
You can either make an appointment there yourself or your local Vet
can make a referral for you.

If your dog has a serious problem, this is where you want to go. Some
believe it's the best veterinary hospital on Earth.
It's 73 miles and about 90 minutes each way from Mill Valley
on I-80.
