If you have an San Francisco pet emergency...

Our Veterinary doctors and technicians at Balboa Pet Hospital are ready to provide the emergency treatment your pet needs. If time allows and someone is with you, call us ahead so we can start getting prepared to provide emergency medical care immediately. If you are alone, just come right away. Your pet will be assessed by a veterinarian or veterinary technician, and triaged much like a human hospital.
