We at Linda Mar Veterinary Hospital are dedicated to providing the very best in veterinary care. We embrace the special bond between people and their pets in an atmosphere of caring and compassion. We are proud to be the only animal hospital in Pacifica to be awarded the Checkbook Guide’s top rating for both quality and price.
Our main facility and our exclusively-feline sister hospital, Coastal Cat Clinic, are both in beautiful Pacifica – conveniently located for pet owners in San Francisco and the northern peninsula. At Linda Mar Veterinary Hospital, we offer weekend and extended evening appointments, as well as a dog vaccine clinic every day of the week during business hours. We do recommend that you call ahead of time & schedule an appointment to help minimize your wait, as we will take patients with appointments before walk-ins.
Our primary facility is Linda Mar Veterinary Hospital, located in the Linda Mar district of Pacifica. Linda Mar Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer comprehensive medical services for dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, and pocket pets such as guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, rats, and mice.
