We Welcome New Patients
If you're looking for a Fairfax, San Anselmo, Corte Madera, Ross Valley, San Geronimo Valley or San Rafael vet center that can serve your entire Marin County menagerie with the skilled, compassionate care they need and deserve, look no further than your friends at Fairfax Veterinary Clinic. Our five-veterinarian team of Dr. Katie Kristensen, Dr. Aaron Wentzell, Dr. Mary Beth Goetting, Dr. Ryen Morey and Dr. Kelly Pipkin offer everything from routine pet wellness care to emergency pet hospital services, allowing to provide the full spectrum of veterinary care. We're also fully licensed to treat a wide range of companion animals -- not just dogs and cats, but also various types of exotic and pocket pets.
The first thing both and your beloved friend will notice when you visit your veterinarian for the first time is the sheer ambience of the facility itself. We maintain a calm, quiet, cheerful, kid-friendly environment that helps to establish the clinic as a positive and comfortable place for your pet to receive his checkups and treatments. We strive to establish close bonds with patients and their owners alike, because we know you want a trusted health and wellness advisor you can count on for life. You'll also notice our dedication to providing the highest standard of care possible through our skills, experience and attention to detail. We aim to meet your entire pet's health and wellness needs, but we're also perfectly willing to refer you to specialists or an after-hours emergency pet hospital as needed. Our first and only priority is the well-being of your pet!
Each veterinarian at Fairfax Veterinary Clinic aims to provide our patients with comprehensive care for every situation and stage of life. We place a strong emphasis on preventative procedures such as pet wellness exams, dentistry, immunizations, spay and neuter surgery (which helps prevent reproductive cancers and other health risks), pet boarding, microchipping and bathing/grooming services. By looking after your pet and keeping him as healthy as possible at all times, we hope to minimize his need for more extensive care throughout his life. Rest assured, however, that if and when your pet does require that extra care, Fairfax Veterinary Clinic is ready to respond with wide range of treatments, including lifesaving services from our emergency pet hospital. We use advanced diagnostic techniques such as ultrasound, lab tests, x-rays and endoscopy to help us identify the problem quickly and conclusively. We can then administer the appropriate medications, perform surgery under anesthesia and/or provide you with nutritional advice, lifestyle adjustment and other home care tips to help your pet manage or recover from a health challenge. We also provide end-of-life care for geriatric or terminally ill pets.
