Welcome to Rita Ranch Pet Hospital, where your pet is always number one. Our veterinary team is pleased to welcome you to our modern veterinary facility. Rita Ranch Pet Hospital is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, or AAHA, maintaining the very highest standards in the veterinary industry. When you receive care from us, you can rest assured that you are receiving the most compassionate and dedicated care possible.
We understand that the biggest concern for many pet owners at the time of their visit is whether or not their pet will feel comfortable during their visit. We know that many pets experience anxiety during visits to the vet, but we don’t want those negative associations for our veterinary hospital. In order to eliminate all stresses for our patients, all of our veterinary staff are trained in the low-stress handling techniques taught by veterinary behaviorist Sophia Yin, to ensure that your pet is comforted during their veterinary visit here in Tucson. We make it our priority to ensure that your beloved pet feels calm and relaxed at our Tucson animal hospital.
We would love to work with you to ensure that your pet receives the most exceptional care possible. If you’re ready to get your pet started on a lifetime of good health, please contact us to schedule your first visit with our team.
We all know that it’s necessary to go to our dentist every 6 months for cleanings, but did you know our pets also need dental care? Periodontal disease, a preventable condition, is the most common disease of adult dogs and cats. Bacteria in the mouth attach to the teeth and secrete a sticky, protective layer of plaque. This builds up and the resulting tartar and calculus cause redness, foul odor, infection, bone loss and ultimately tooth loss.
Daily home care of brushing, rinsing or chewing appropriate dental chews can greatly reduce this problem. But just like with people, even with daily home care, most pets also need regular cleanings. We provide anesthetic cleanings, full mouth dental xrays, and extractions when needed.
