Welcome to Santa Margarita Animal Care
At Santa Margarita Animal Care Center we do much more than care for pets who are ill or injured. Our mission is to provide services and products needed to keep your pet healthy and happy during it's lifetime. We pledge to do it in a caring and gentle manner.
We originally opened as Rancho Santa Margarita Veterinary Hospital in 1988, in the Plaza Empresa. Because of our dedication to client and patient care we were able to expand and open Santa Margarita Animal Care Center in October 2000. We are still committed to offering affordable pet care with the best customer service on which our reputation was built. Dr. Kelpe and his associates are backed by a knowledgeable and caring support staff with over 80 years combined experience in the veterinary field. This means your pets receive the very best medical attention from people who care.
Santa Margarita Animal Care is a full-service animal hospital whose mission is to provide the highest standard of veterinary care for pets. We provide friendly, informative, and supportive services for you and your pet, while maintaining a superior working environment for our employees.
Santa Margarita Animal Care offers the Rancho Santa Margarita animal community emergency veterinary services as well as medical, surgical, and dental veterinary care. With an in-house dispensary and access to specialists, our facility offers a one stop for your pet's health and medical care.
