Chow knowledgeable/friendly vet in the Bay Area

Post by ChowFUN » Mon Sep 27, 2010 6:16 pm

Hi all,

We just moved to the Bay Area and are looking for a vet for our Mochi. I ran a search, but the recommendation was for a vet 60 miles away. I'm in the East bay but I'm willing to drive 25-30 miles from the San Francisco area for a really chow friendly and knowledgeable vet. Does anyone have any recommendations? (If possible, please provide the name of the clinic/hospital and if there is a specific vet that is really good.)

Thank you!

Leonora's vet is in SF. She loves it there & everyone there loves her! All the staff are friendly & professional. She is boarded there when we go away as well. However, you might want to find a vet closer to you.

Thanks for the suggestion. Is there a particular vet Leonora sees?

They are all very good, and Leonora has been seen by all. But Dr. Michael Ina, Dr. Jamie Ina, and Dr. Margaret Kang are the three I try to go for.

I didn't quite recognize the name of the clinic, but I did recognize Dr. Ina's name. I took my cat Rusty to that clinic years ago when I lived in SF. He was so cool then, glad to know he's still working. Jamie must be his son or daughter? I'll have to check out the website.
