My kitty is elderly and a nervous person so vet visits are hard on him. Having learned about Fear Free I set out to find a practice that would help him and it brought us to Santaluz. Poor guy was having constipation issues and grooming problems and the wonderful humans at Santaluz took wonderful care of him and even gave him a new haircut. Now he looks and feels like a new man. Thank you all so much!

We’ve been going there with our pets for two years but also I’ve taken my clients dogs there for many more . Dr Johnson is beyond attentive and informed. The staff is also amazing!! Your animals will be loved and cared for at Santa Luz.

Dr. Laura johnson and all the girls/ vet techs are kind and capable. They take care of my baby girl, Joy, with ease. Vaccines are given with no notice by Joy. The wellness plan is the way to go because it spreads cost out consistently over the year and gives more veterinary care than minimum treatments

After a friend's recommendation, I decided to switch to Santaluz Animal Care for my 10-year-old Frenchie, who was struggling with a severe ear infection and UTI. This decision came after a disappointing experience with my previous vet, where I disagreed with the treatment proposed. From the moment we stepped into the clinic, I was impressed by their stress-free approach to care. My dog, who typically trembles with anxiety at the vet, remained remarkably calm throughout her visit, thanks to their compassionate staff. Gabby and the team were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable, taking the time to listen to my concerns and explain the treatment plan thoroughly. Dr. Johnson demonstrated genuine care going above and beyond to address my dog's needs. After completing the recommended treatment and attending a recheck visit, I'm happy to report that my dog's health issues have been resolved. I'm grateful for the exceptional care provided by Santaluz Vet Clinic and highly recommend them to anyone seeking compassionate and effective veterinary care.

Our pets are treated so lovingly at Santaluz. One of our dogs is elderly and is a bit afraid of vet visits. She has really thrived in the fear free environment Santaluz has carefully cultivated. She never enters shaking or anything like that, and this is probably the first time I can say that about her reaction to entering a vet’s office in the 15 years I’ve had her. Our other pets love it too, but the difference is particularly noticeable with her. It’s also wonderful for owners! The staff are so sweet, and Dr. Johnson is incredibly knowledgeable. Nothing ever happens without a full discussion of what the treatment plan is and why.

Easily the best vet that we’ve ever been to. We recently moved and tried another vet nearby and it was night and day difference. The Team at Santaluz Animal Care are very knowledgeable, friendly and loving with your pets. Couldn’t ask for more than that.

I 💯highly recommend this veterinarian for anyone who has fur babies. From my first phone call Sonia was quick, informative and scheduled my apt with no hassle. I came in with both of our frenchies to a clean, calm, loving atmosphere. Carol at the front desk greeted our frenchies with a smile and immediately connected to our frenchies with care. Inside the exam rooms our frenchies entered with a sense of ease and comfort. Little couches and a little bed was set up for them to be relaxed and comfortable in a calm atmosphere home setting. No scary metal table as it was at the old vet. The staff all ...What an Amazing, Caring, informative staff. Dr. Johnson wowoowowow.... Both of my frenchies just adored her. She is calm, very informative, she made our exam quick and easy. The staff really do make taking your fur babies to the vet here a Totally 💯 positive not frightening experience.
