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 since 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.

  • "There are many people who are not experienced with small animals such as hamsters. It was clear from the way my animal was handled and cared for that my veterinarian was not one of those people! I felt that my animal was in good hands (literally). :)"

  • "I've been going to Balboa Pet for over 25 years. Everyone there is so professional and FRIENDLY!!!"
    Nancy M. | 2/5/2018
  • "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!"
  • "LOVE everything about this place!!! The people are all super nice & caring. I never feel like they’re trying to sell me stuff I don’t need. The vets (especially Dr. Alice Chan) are wonderful, I always fee; comfortable coming here whenever Walle has an issue. They even help me file the insurance claims after each visit! Would highly recommended any pet owners to see them for their fur-baby needs."
  • "My dog has been a regular patient since 7 years ago. Once in a while we visit other hospitals due to time conflicts. However, we always go back to Balboa Pet Hospital. My dog has bad allergy and the doctors and assistants always follow up with us after the treatments or visits, help us submit the insurance claims. It’s not a cheapest place to go but their patience and caring are irreplaceable."
  • "I’m glad to have found Balboa Pet Hospital near my home. It’s definitely a hidden gem! Dr. Chan saw my dog, Oreo, for her skin problem last week, and my three cats, Pepper, Tofu and Cola, today for annual check-up. She’s very patient (especially with Oreo who’s shy to strangers), knowledgeable and approachable. The front staffs are also very friendly and helpful. They are so prompt to reply my email (within a few hours when I checked back my mailbox). All my pets are about 1-year-old and I’ll definitely bring them here for their health issues/checkup in many years followed."
