Dental health is a key factor in a long & happy life for your pet! 🦷 By maintaining the health of your furry friend's teeth, you can protect them from dental disease, which (in it's later stages) can travel from the mouth and affect other parts of the body. 😱

Have no fear! At La Cumbre, we carry a multitude of different dental products to help you care for even the most finicky of pets. πŸ‘ Although we consider brushing your pet's teeth as the "gold standard", the best method is the method you can consistently maintain. Scroll thru to take a peek at what we offer!

Happy Monday, everyone! Since the California mask mandate lifted last week, we want to remind our clients that we are still requiring masks in our office. This is to guarantee the safety & health of our staff so that we can keep our doors open and continue to be available for your pets. πŸ™‚ We no longer require N95s for in-room appointments - just a mask that covers both your nose and mouth. 😷

If you do not have a mask with you or opt not to wear one, we are happy to help you curbside either in your car, over the phone, or outside on our front patio. We also can sell you a mask for $3. πŸ‘

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you and your furry family member soon! #lacumbrelovespets

The feeling when you realize you haven't scheduled your pet's annual exam yet. 😳 AND they're overdue for preventatives!

Annual exams are an integral part of your pet's long & healthy life. They allow your vet to check from nose to tail and provide an opportunity to catch any potential concerns early! Plus - especially if your pet has not been seen for 12 months - an annual exam is necessary to continue prescribing any medications (especially for preventatives!) It's the law!

We are currently booking out around 3-4 weeks for annual exams, so give us a call sooner rather than later! We look forward to caring for your furry family member. πŸ₯° #lacumbrelovespets

Long time, no see! We hope you're staying safe and healthy this January. πŸ’•

With the surge of positive COVID cases attributed to the Omicron variant, we are requesting that all owners who would like to be present for a 40 minute in-room exam wear an N95 mask in our office. This will help us do what we can to keep our staff healthy and our clinic doors open! If you do not have an N95 mask for your in-room exam, we can sell you one for $3 or you are welcome to have your exam curbside.

If you are coming by to pick up medications, food, or bring your pet in for a tech appointment, an N95 mask is not required. Thank goodness for spacious lobbies! 😊

We look forward to continuing to care for your fur babies! #lacumbrelovespets

Last week was Staff Appreciation Week and, although our photos may be belated, our love for our staff is never ending! πŸ’•

Our team brings their compassion, their skill, and their perseverance in the face of adversity to work each & every day and we could not be more thankful to them for it! The past year and a half have been a true test of will for the veterinary industry nationwide; the La Cumbre Animal Hospital team has proved that, through it all, they are here for Santa Barbara's furry residents. 🐱🐢

In the good and the bad, the easy and seemingly impossible, this team remains faithful to our clients & patients. La Cumbre Animal Hospital would not be the practice it is without them. Thank you, staff! πŸ₯°

AAHA Proud

As we are looking forward to our next visit from the American Animal Hospital Association in May, we have been reflecting on how proud we are to have been an AAHA accredited practice for over 25 years, and counting! We take great pride in this accreditation, and are pleased to go above and beyond for our patients every day!

Chaunceythepooch LOVES Santa Barbara’s La Cumbre Animal Hospital!
I've been taking our dogs to La Cumbre Animal Hospital for decades and would NEVER take them ANYWHERE else. The entire staff treats my dogs like they are their own. They know my dogs, they know their health issues, and they always treat both me and my dogs with care and respect. I think I have the only dogs on the planet that fight to get INTO the vet!!! If you truly love your pets, take the to La Cumbre Animal Hospital!!!
Please, Santa Barbara people, share! Somebody saw a lady taking Boyo in a grey metallic car. Our hearts are broken. We want him back, and won't stop until he is home where he belongs. Please, return him, no questions asked. He is a big gray tabby, very friendly, usually rolls over to say hi. He is around 3 years old and microchipped. We are heartbroken. If you have seen him, please respond by email to this ad. He was last seen on June 19th around Salinas Place and Oak (East Side). There are two little girls waiting to see their friend again.
Absolutely love the staff of La Cumbre Animal Hospital. They are wonderful and take amazing care with my two cats! Which is not always easy as they think they are wild tigers sometimes! Keep on being the best and making it look so easy.
Better late than never...
Dr.Kuesis at La Cumbre Animal Hospital is honestly the only vet Dr. I've ever liked and trusted. In many years in Santa Barbara . She is well educated , knows what she is doing and also gas empathy. My 13 year old did before and after surgery with 4 lumps removed and 7 teeth removed is running around like a puppy again. Thank you Dr. Eve Kursis
Hi La Cumbre Animal Hospital! Due to the loss of animal life during the Thomas Fire and Montecito Mudslide, Hospice of Santa Barbara is reaching out to those who have lost their beloved pets to offer support and help them cope with their grief. We hope that you might consider sharing this post with your following. Thank you for all that you do for animals in our community 🐾❀️
ANIMAL OWNERS THAT HAVE ANIMALS THAT REACT TO FIREWORKS ... Next Monday night, July 31st. there will be a Firework Display after the New York Philharmonic concert at La Playa stadium, SBCC. The concert starts at 7:30.
Just wanted to say thanks to Dr. O'Donnell and everyone else at LCAH for always taking care of Juju, or "The Jooj". She's growing so fast, but I'm always happy to hear that she's healthy and doing well after her checkups. Have a fantastic 4th of July!! πŸ•
I wish to thank Bill Callahan and Eve Kuesis for taking care of Lilli so her time with us was in good health; until the last year when we have stayed in Yorba Linda so she would not have any stairs to impede her movement. She had turned the corner and was approaching fifteen.
Did you know?... Your dog can be trained to recognize rattlesnakes by sight sound or scent AND to then avoid them? They can possibly help you avoid an unfortunate surprise encounter as well by serving as your early warning system. My professional herpetologist & I offer what many of my thousands of extremely satisfied clients have claimed is the most humane, comprehensive and effective (R.A.T.) training they have experienced. Uniquely we offer options of traditional e-collar as well as vibrate and spray options. Sign up at www.SnakeSafeDog.com
