They’re here to guide you through the ups and downs of raising a pet and be a major source of information and support for you on this journey. Our Team To our wonderful, valued clients: We’re sincerely grateful for your support and understanding through the last couple of years, and we’re committed to continuing to provide exceptional care for you and your cherished pets! We love taking care of your companions and helping them enjoy longer, healthier lives with you. The challenges that arose during the Covid pandemic have, unfortunately, led to a dramatic increase in demands for veterinary services. Our hospital, like many others around the country, is struggling to accommodate these demands and the growing number of pets who need care. This struggle is creating burnout among our staff, something that is common in the veterinary profession, and this makes it even more difficult for our team to serve you and your pets to the best of their ability. In the midst of the pandemic, Damonte Ranch Animal Hospital adopted curbside service as a measure to continue serving the community, while also protecting the health and safety of our doctors, staff, and of course, our clients. While the risk of Covid has subsided for the most part, our hospital continues to operate in a curbside fashion so we can give our clients and patients our undivided attention and provide them with the best care possible. We strive to make the most out of every minute of every hour to serve you and your pets. We recognize that the curbside approach is not ideal for every pet owner. However, this approach allows our doctors and staff to maximize their abilities to see as many patients as they can, and reduce the need to turn clients away. We want to welcome more new clients and patients to our hospital and prevent animals with serious medical problems from having to wait for treatment. We can assure you that when your pets are in our care during a curbside appointment, we treat them like they’re our own. We do everything we can to make them feel comfortable and secure during their treatment, so our team can go above and beyond to care for them and provide for their every need. Dr. Baker and her staff greatly appreciate the trust you place in them to care for your beloved family members. We humbly ask for your continued understanding and kindness as we work to meet the increasing needs of the pet community, and give you and your pets the outstanding care you deserve. We are deeply thankful that you have chosen us for your pets’ care, and we hope to continue providing for their every need for years to come. Your support means the world to us, and it drives us to do better every day.
