Meet The Owners

Learn Who We Are

  • Paul D. Clary, III, D.V.M., and Alice K. Clary
    Owners of Balboa Pet Hospital in San Francisco since 1966

    Dr. Clary began practicing veterinary medicine in 1963. He and his wife, Alice, purchased the practice in 1966. They worked together to establish a well known and respected veterinary practice with a family atmosphere that is welcoming to clients. Their four children and some of their 16 grandchildren have worked at Balboa Pet Hospital over the years. Before Dr. Clary died in 2011, he and Alice had laid the groundwork for his legacy of service to live on. The Clary Family had many pets over the years. Sadly, their dog Fathom passed away within a month of Dr. Clary's death. Their cat 'Pete', who Dr. Clary called 'the most beautiful cat in the world', still lives with Alice, keeping her company when she is not at the Pet Hospital. Alice remains active as  Practice Manager and Owner.

  • "I love Balboa Pet Hospital! Balboa Pet Hospital's staff is amazing! The staff is knowledgeable, caring and above all honest! I feel confident that my pets are getting the best possible care there. The staff has always taken time to answer all of my questions and if I think of something after my appointment, I can just email! I know I won’t have to wait too long for response.

    Unfortunately, this year I’ve had to make some really difficult decisions. The compassion the staff showed to both my pet and I made these unbearable times tolerable. I am indebted to both Dr. Del Rosso and (the wonderful) Dr. Ravn for their kindness, compassion and dedication.

    If you are new to the area or just looking for a new vet, please give Balboa pet Hospital a call!"
