Alhambra Veterinary Hospital is a full-service hospital specializing in state-of-the-art veterinary medicine. That begins, of course, with preventative care. We ensure your pets are protected from unwanted pests, parasites, and viruses. We help you understand not just what your pet needs, but why they need it. We also offer vaccines and vaccine titers to ensure we are not over vaccinating your furred children. In addition, we offer dentistry, soft tissue surgery, grooming, microchipping services, and senior wellness.
We’re not your ordinary animal clinic. Our owner, Dr. John Gil, is a skilled clinician, well-versed in all fields of veterinary medicine. He truly enjoys managing complex cases such as diabetes, gastrointestinal disease, epilepsy, ocular disorders, and kidney disease, to name a few. He stays current on the latest research and aims to provide the best and most up-to-date care for all his patients. He’s also bilingual and welcomes the chance to discuss your pet’s unique needs—in both English and Spanish.
Dr. Gil graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2009 with a degree in zoology. He then moved back home to Los Angeles, where he worked as a veterinary nurse in a busy ICU for two years. He graduated from Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015 (Go Hokies!). Afterward, he completed a prestigious, intensive one-year internship at The Animal Medical Center in New York City, the world’s most renowned specialty hospital. During this internship, Dr. Gil received advanced training in internal medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, dermatology, neurology, critical care, oncology, cardiology, and radiology. After this rigorous training, he moved to San Diego, where he trained for two years under a team of board-certified internal medicine specialists, ultimately expanding his diagnostics capabilities to include ultrasound and endoscopy. Since then, he’s worked at a large variety of hospitals over the past 15 years, honing his skills and keeping current on the latest treatments and diagnostics available.
Your pets mean the world to you. They mean the world to us, too. We promise to always treat them with kindness, compassion, and skill.
