San Bruno Pet Celebrates its 70th Anniversary
Our hospital was founded as White and Morris Pet Hospital in 1947. Since that time our name has changed - first to White Ivie Pet Hospital, and then to San Bruno Pet Hospital. However, our commitment to our patients, our clients, our team, and to San Bruno have been constant.

We are proud to have been a part of the San Bruno community for the past 70 years, and we look forward to continuing to help the pets and people of the Peninsula as we move into the future.

Throughout the remainder of 2017 we will be celebrating our 70th anniversary by highlighting our history as well as our present and our future. We will be sharing stories from and about some of the patients, clients, and team members that make San Bruno Pet such a special place.

Please join us on our Facebook and Instagram feeds for updates as we celebrate through the fall.

Dr. Eric Barchas, DVM
Medical Director of San Bruno Pet Hospital



What to do in a Dog Emergency

In the June Newsletter, Dr. Barchas discussed a dozen of the most common and serious canine veterinary emergencies. If your dog suffers an emergency, there will be a period of time when you may be the one responsible for helping and getting your pet to a veterinarian.

This month, Dr. Barchas offers advice to get you through that often stressful time.

Assessing pain is a complicated challenge, especially in cats. Pain has two primary components: the sensory aspect (intensity, location and duration) and the affective aspect (emotional toll).
