Considering your pet's perspective every step of the way.
Our Fear Free® approach infuses key processes to ensure a safe, comfortable visit for your pet and you. We're providing everything from general wellness checkups to specialized dental care and vaccinations at our clinic in Carmel Valley, San Diego.
Now accepting walk-ins for urgent cases!
We do things a little differently.
Create an account and download the Papaya Pet Care app on your smartphone. Joining Papaya is free, but there are membership options available that offer a variety of perks for your pet. Once your pet is in the Papaya system, you will always have access to their medical records even if you move or change providers.
Care Plan Creation
After you create your account, we'll also ask a series of questions that consider your pet's personality and past experiences at the vet. Once we have this information, a Papaya Team Member will contact you within 48 hours to discuss how we can best serve your pet and review our Fear Free approach. We may suggest a Comfort Visit™, anxiety medication, or that you bring some of your pet's favorite toys and treats to their visit.
Papaya Comfort Visit™
We created a unique visit experience for our pets who may be a little more nervous. Our Papaya Comfort Visits are a non-medical walk through of our clinic for pets to explore the space, get lots of treats, and love from our team. Our goal is to help with positive conditioning, so your pet doesn't associate our clinic with fear, anxiety, or stress.
Compassionate Pet Care
When your pet and you experience Papaya, we hope you're surprised and delighted with how we approach pet care. From accessible telehealth appointments to how our staff is trained to interact with your cat or dog in our clinics, our goal is to create a pleasant environment every step of the way. We can't wait to meet you!
