Welcome To Santa Ynez Pet Hospital
Santa Ynez Pet Hospital was built in 1983 by Dr. Bob “Doc” Dean, and has been a pillar of our cozy valley for over 40 years. Together, he and his wife, Joanne, have created a legacy of phenomenal patient care and a family oriented workplace. In early 2023, Doc and Joanne wanted to secure the future and core values of SYPH as a family-owned hospital, so they chose to sell the practice to a local veterinarian, father, and husband, Dr. Neshan Sarkisian.
With over 100 years of combined experience, Dr. Sarkisian, Dr. Dean, Dr. Edwards, Dr. Parker, and Dr. Zekaria continue to cultivate their knowledge and expand the hospital’s scope and equipment so that we may handle even the most challenging cases.
Inside of our unique rammed-earth, sustainably-built facility, we offer cutting-edge equipment, highly experienced veterinarians, and a fun loving staff. We are a full service small animal hospital that welcomes all medical, surgical, dental, and emergency cases.
We are the only general practice in Santa Barbara County that offers Laparoscopic OVariEctomies (ie. “LOVE” Spays), as well as laparoscopic gastropexies and exploratory surgeries. Dr. Sarkisian holds special certifications of training in these minimally invasive surgerical techniques. These surgeries allow for minimal invasion of the abdomen with only a small camera and 1-2 instruments, allowing for quick outpatient procedures with a short and relatively painless recovery.
While your pets are with us, we will do everything we can to give them an exciting visit. If you are concerned about leaving your pet, please don’t hesitate to set up a time to visit our hospital and look around our boarding facility. We will be happy to discuss our boarding policies and answer any questions you may have.
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and has the potential to seep into your pet’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
At Santa Ynez Pet Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.
At Santa Ynez Pet Hospital in Santa Ynez, CA , we believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet’s health is vaccinating him or her against possible diseases. There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets, and other animals, so proper vaccination is vital to protecting them from many types of illnesses.
We are dedicated to providing the highest level of veterinary medicine along with friendly, compassionate service.
We believe in nurturing the human-animal bond and creating a harmonious relationship between people and pets.
