  • "Care Animal Hospital is wonderful and this is by far the best place to take your pet. I have been to several other veterinary hospitals and nothing compares to the friendliness of the staff and their compassion for taking care of animals. The staff is extremely knowledgeable on pet healthcare. The doctors are excellent and willing to answer all of your questions. After visiting care, I wouldn’t take my pets anywhere else."
    Danielle B. / Redding, CA
  • "Best vet/animal care facility I’ve ever dealt with. They were so accommodating when I had to put my 15 year old dog to sleep. Jaime and Dr. Tennant were amazing. I got his ashes back today in a beautiful cedar Urn, a ceramic plate of his paw prints with his name, and a very sweet poem � Thank you for everything you guys did for me."
