What to Expect

When you are looking for a veterinary clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service.  We at La Costa Animal Hospital in Carlsbad CA have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet.  We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.  Call 760-944-1266 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

Twice a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up.  Dr. Michael Schatzle will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to La Costa Animal Hospital.

Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic.  It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts.  If you have something like this, share it with our team.  If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.  Dr. Schatzle can still work with whatever information you have. 

In some circumstances, Dr. Schatzle will refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
