About Us

Welcome to Cardiff Animal Hospital & Wellness Center!

We are a full-service animal hospital dedicated to providing exceptional patient care and unparalleled customer service. It is our desire to earn your trust and confidence by providing your pet with the very best medical, surgical, and holistic care available.

To provide you and your pet with the best experience possible, we have taken extra care to create an environment that is both warm and inviting, and want to ensure that your visit is as pleasant as possible. Upon arriving at our hospital, you and your pet will be promptly greeted by our friendly staff. We have taken care to ensure that our entrance and lobby are welcoming, and we employ pheromone therapy in both our examination and treatment rooms to help calm and reduce our patient’s stress. For the comfort of your pet, you will find that our doctors perform many of their patient examinations on the floor, but when it is necessary to place a patient up on an examination table, special non-slip surfaces are used to provide your pet with a secure surface upon which to stand.

Also, to help reduce the stress of our feline patients, we have separate entrances, waiting areas, and exam rooms for dogs and cats. We are a Certified Cat Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners, and follow the most advanced guidelines and recommendations for feline handling and care in the medical environment.

To ensure that your pet receives the benefit of the most up-to-date practice standards, we follow the practice guidelines established by the American Association of Veterinary Medicine (AVMA), the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP).

Furthermore, our doctors attend countless hours of continuing education annually and actively seek out advanced training courses and instruction. Our support staff also undergoes ongoing training and education throughout their employment with the CAHWC. This ensures that everyone involved in the care of your pet is both knowledgeable and qualified. Every step along the way, you can be confident that your pet is receiving the best care possible.

If you are a current or prospective client, we welcome you to come by our hospital to meet the doctors and staff and tour our hospital. We want you to feel secure in our level of expertise, and comfortable with our facility, doctors, and staff.

We’re big on teamwork.
