Our Clients say...

The doctor came out to talk to me about my dog’s general health and I knew I found a place that truly cared about my dog and was also a caring and compassionate partner in keeping her healthy. I am so grateful to work with Dr. Holmes and her team.

David S.

My experience at La Cumbre animal hospital has been excellent across the board. We’re on our third dog under their care and very happy. Dr. Holmes has taken the time to have in-depth conversations with me about my pet’s health and ensure all my questions were answered, even when I know she had many other patients and things to attend to.

Jeff P.

I can’t say enough how much I trust the staff at La Cumbre Animal Hospital. They are like family. I am very grateful to have found them.

Shayla W.

They are very knowledgeable and extremely nice! I love this place. They are the best in town and have an easy parking lot to access. Very reasonably priced and great all-around.


La Cumbre Animal Hospital has gained my complete trust when it comes to diagnosing and solving health problems for my 5 yr old Chihuahua mix.

Jesus G.

I called La Cumbre Animal Hospital to see if they had room for a new patient. The person who answered the phone, yes, A Real Person, told me they were accepting a few new dogs and they were able to see our dog Billy in a few days. My old vet took 6 days to reply to an email.  We visited LCAH a few days later in their great new digs. Everyone there was friendly to both people and dogs. We waited a few minutes (I’m chronically early) and were seen right on time. The techs were great with Billy who is not an easy dog. Vet was friendly and knowledgeable. Billy got a few vaccinations and a blood draw all with a minimum of fuss but lots of liver treats.  I am a new fan of LCAH. They are great.
