Welcome to Paso Petcare Veterinary Hospital
Located in Paso Robles and opened in December 2000, Paso Petcare is the realization of a lifelong dream for our owner Ann Stacker, DVM. The clinic was a family effort and labor of love from its inception; Dr. Ann, her husband Greg, and her sister Debbie, worked together to plan, design and build our facility with the same attention to detail and dedication to excellence that continues in our commitment to compassionate, comprehensive and high-quality healthcare for the pets in our community.
As a full-service small animal veterinary hospital, our goal is to keep pets healthy so they can enjoy long, happy lives with their human companions. In addition to providing excellent medical care, we are dedicated to establishing and maintaining strong owner-pet-provider relationships based on mutual respect and consideration, communication, and compassion. We also maintain excellent working relationships with our local pet emergency hospital and veterinary specialists for consultations or referrals as needed to meet the individual needs of our pet patients.
In our friendly, informative and supportive environment, every member of our staff strives to treat each client as they would a valued friend and each pet as they would their own! We truly appreciate being entrusted with the care of these beloved pets and we understand the importance of their owner's participation in that care. Our passion and hard work allow us to enjoy an excellent reputation and a loyal clientele that expects and appreciates the best! We welcome every client with their pets to become part of the Paso Petcare family.
