Ocean Ave Veterinary Hospital
My 3 year old German Sheperd, Zohan was experiencing intense itching until I met Dr. Singla at Ocean Ave Veterinary Hospital. I took him to several different veterinarians, because no one could diagnose his condition. Someone was diagnosing food allergy, environmental allergy, immune disorder. They put Zohan on several different kind of foods, and medicine. I ended up spending more than $3000 in vet bills. One day I went to Dr. Singla, he did one blood work for thyroid panel, first I was thinking not to do blood work because of cost, but when he told me all the signs of the condition that was similiar to Zohan's symptoms, I agreed to test for Thyroid function. Next day Dr. Singla called me without any delay that my dog has hyperthyroid condition and we started on medication for this condition. Again Zohan is feeling great and enjoying his life. Dr. Singla is great, kind and compassionate. I will recommend Dr. Singla to everyone. Thanks Dr. Singla!!!

I've been a client here since 1997. The Doctors are very competant and compassionate and the staff is extremely knowledgable and helpful. Even though I have moved to Marin I wouldn't go anywhere else

I bought my pet, Jam, here and he is so happy with the result of the medication. I can tell that his energy was back and I can see that he loves to run and play once again.

Was worried with my dog's condition before visiting this veterinary clinic. I was happy that they did what they can to help my dog get back to health. Thank you very much.

Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
