Is peanut butter safe for dogs? The short answer is yes! BUT it's important to always check the ingredients before sharing a snack with your pup. Always make sure that your peanut butter doesn't include Xylitol, which is a deadly toxin for your dog. Instead, try to provide your pet with dog-specific peanut butter!

Do you ever hear your pet singing when it's time for you to head to work? Some dogs howl because they're lonely - dogs are social creatures and they love to be around their humans. However, sometimes howling can be a sign of separation anxiety and, in these cases, should be treated to prevent it from growing worse. Give our office a call to learn more about treating your pet's separation anxiety - we're here to help! ๐Ÿถ

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 Barbaraโ€™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 ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ
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!! ๐Ÿ•
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
