Dr. Ruth's Vet 2 Pet Mobile Holistic Veterinary Service
I have been raising hunting dogs and best friends for over 50 years and have had the opportunity to meet several wonderful veterinarians through the years. I must say Dr. Ruth is absolutely by far and away the best I have known in that time. She is totally no nonsense in her approach and will not lead you through the multitude of unnecessary tests to fatten the bottom line. Dr. Ruth is Holistic in her approach when possible but when knows where to draw the line in my humble opinion. She is just the best, so caring and loving to my pets (children) and is a bargain in comparison to what is available out there. I believe she has cut her overhead in her mobile approach and prices her services accordingly My wife and I just love her to death. We give her 5 Wows. Thank you Dr. Ruth !!!

Caring Hands Pet Clinic
Dr. Cynthia Massey is a great veterinarian. Santa Maria's best veterinarian is compasionate, caring, thorough, and communicates very well. The staff at Caring Hands Pet Clinic is excellent and are very committed to great customer service and genuinely care about my pets health. Everytime I am there they run an efficient, on time, very clean facility and are always seem to be under the estimated cost. Dr. Massey does a great job and should be your Santa Maria veterinarian of choice. Caring Hands Pet Clinic is the best clinic I have ever been to.

Caring Hands Pet Clinic
Wow! Dr. Massey was so very kind and caring to offer to help us with our 14 year old baby, Chibi. Dr. Massey could have sent us to the Emergency Pet Care center 20 minutes away being that it was after hours on a Saturday evening. Our baby bled profusely from her nose, and we were freaking out. Just the thought of someone there to listen immensely helped us and calmed OUR nerves, even though we know at our babies age the outcome isn't favorable. Thank you so much for living up to the clinic's name - Caring Hands!

Dr. Ruth came to our house to ease the pain of the end of life for our best friend Kelly, our rotty mix. She was at our house quickly. She helped Kelly out of her pain and going over the rainbow bridge. I would recommend her any time. She is a bit pricey in comparison to vet offices. But that's the trade off for a Mobil vet! It's much more kind and calm than dealing with a yawning cat and whiny dogs in the car? I recommend this vet highly!

I've taken several of my pets here and always received good care. There was one receptionist who wasn't very friendly or helpful, but she is no longer there. Dr. Brenda is very caring and considerate. The only negative thing is that there is no weekend coverage so if your animal gets sick on Sat.., you can't have him there overnight.

I had to put my beloved companion to sleep yesterday. Dr. Ruth came to my home so I didn't have the added stress of carrying my pet in the car to a cold, sterile, vets office. She was very compassionate. Her attitude made things so much more bearable for me. I will recommend her to all my friends with pets.

Dr. Ruth's caring treatment restored my paralyzed dog's ability to walk. She is skillful as she is caring and highly educated. Definitely your best bet for personal vet services.
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
