Great place to bring your pet. The people are great and the veterinarians don't push for services you don't need.

Dr. Hall and the techs took really great care of my grumpiest of grumps cat Harley. She was really forthcoming with all the information we'd need for caring for Harley (has leaky eyes). Super affordable and I especially liked that they ran me through the bill early and wouldn't charge until after the work was done, assuming that Harley might be too stressed to have it done at all. Included picture of Harley being adorable for cat tax.

They have quickly become our new family vet. We bring both our dogs here. They never overcharge and are very fair with pricing.

This is a great vet. They treat my dog with care, communicate well and don't try to oversell you on treatment.

This is the only pet hospital that can see my cat in a week. Almost all other places don't take new patient. Dr Kelley did a thorough check-up of the 3-4 issues of my cat, and provided proper treatment. After the visit, she also sent me a detailed handout to understand the disease my cat is experiencing. It's such a relief to have my cat treated timely. Besides, the staff are friendly and responsible. Note that the parking is behind the building.

Pros: Doctors who care about animals, are willing to problem solve with you and consider what's best for your pet. Medical advice always on point. Cons: Rude reception staff who sounds like they're doing you a favor by taking your call. Really not what you want to deal with when already worried about a sick pet

The two doctors here are excellent. Dr. Hall has been my pet's doctor for 10 years. I have a friend that travels from Reno to this clinic. They always offer the least invasive and inexpensive solution first. The office itself is not fancy, but my dog does not seem to mind!

The staff at Peninsula Avenue Veterinary Clinic is the best!! They are so efficient and most importantly so great with our dog. They are the type of vet that legitimately cares about the animals that they care for, and are not simply running a business. I have gone in before and they haven’t even charged for a minor thing where they didn’t have to actually do anything but could have billed me hundreds at a different vet. I even have called before with a concern and they have told me it was minor and I didn’t need to even go in. They are honest and you should trust them with your loved ones!!

The team here is awesome. Even with the COVID19 issues going on, they took us in as new clients and did an excellent job with our pup. Super friendly and communicative. We couldn't be happier with the care our pup received.

The best vets around!! We were clients of Dr. Hall and Dr. Kelley when they worked in San Francisco. When they moved here, we followed. Wouldn't trust our animals with anyone else!!

Peninsula Avenue Veterinary Clinic has always come through for us. They performed surgery to save one of my cat's lives when he ate a hair tie. Routine care has always been clearly explained, no hidden costs, and as painless a process as possible. Their Covid protocols are sensible and haven't unduly complicated the experience. Recommended!

I've been here twice so far and I like them. Decent prices as far as I know. They were a bit pricey to trim cat nails, but that's ok cause I have a place for that already. The Vet even remembered my cat after a whole year on only 1 visit when he was a kitten. Of course though, everybody remembers Mr. Pumba. He's such a gentleman. Hehe

At night darkness, the bright white unshielded porch light shines directly in Peninsula east-bound drivers eyes, temporarily blinding them and damaging their night vision. Do they know or care!? Burliname PD doesn't! Guess I will call and try to inform them...

Very reasonable pricing and great service. Michelle was very nice and willing to discuss with me my dogs treatment. This will be our go to vet in the SM area for the foreseeable future.

Dr. Kelly is the best. She has helped on short notice with our puppy more than once and really cares for the animals. You can really tell that she treats them just like her children, which is so so appreciated. They are also open for some time on Saturday which has saved us more than one emergency trip! One downside - parking is tough. Even with the spots out back it can be a challenge to find a spot.

I took my dog , she was very ill they where concerned about the price . HOW MUCH the treatment was going to cost . I explain that my dog wasn’t eating almost anything next day I call explaining that she wasn’t eating and I call twice for her to subscribe my dog something that helps her eating make long history short my dog die a hour later . I spend almost $500 . My dog got a heart problem and she focus on her eyes . I spend over 100 on her eyes . Told me to take a x Ray of her heart but I told my husband let’s take her to a cardiologist instead of stressing her even more . BUT SHE NEVER told us that was a case of emergency MY DOG DIE Next day . All I know they all care about MONEY MONEY MONEY

I have had great experiences with both vets, Dr. Kelly & Dr. Hall. They are very caring and very knowledgeable. They take the time needed to explain what the problem is with your animal.

After having bad experiences at my old vet I went to Yelp. I found the vet and so far so good. Friendly and caring!

Dr. Michelle Kelley is gentle and patient when handling and caring for my large Rhodesian Ridgeback. She thoroughly explains any procedures or treatments clearly so I can make an informed decision on the care of my pet. She has performed surgery to remove a tumor on my dog's leg resulting in a full recovery of function. I trust Dr. Michelle Kelley for my dog's yearly physical exam as well as her recommendations for heartworm, flea & tick preventatives. We consider our dog as part of our family, and I trust Dr. Michelle Kelley with all of her veterinary needs. I have and will continue to recommended Dr. Kelley to my friends and associates.

I liked this vet at first. Until I had to get paperwork together to export our dog as we were moving out of country. The rate quoted for a rabies titer was near $400 and one of the highest rates quoted for the Bay Area, especially considering it takes only a minute and the fee for the test facility is only $90. That's a significant markup. I did have our dogs rabies vaccine updated here as this was our regular vet initially. I also had her install the new International Microchip required for export. However they refused to reply to a simple email stating that they installed the new microchip and that the old microchip was still valid, that both were functional. They asked that I bring the dog in again so they could scan her again, which was not possible. This is also despite the fact that the vet did scan our dog to locate the existing microchip before inserting the new one in a different location. Also despite them having full records and having seen our dog a few times in the last few months. Needless to say, I'm upset. I'm upset the vet doesn't remember us. I'm upset that this vet doesn't keep good records. And I am very upset to be denied a simple email stating that both microchips are valid.
