Welcome to the Venetian Pet Hospital in Stockton, CA

Call us at 209-477-3926


Whether you are just moving into the Stockton area or finally getting a pet after living in the area for years, the Venetian Pet Hospital can provide for all of your animal's health-related needs. Our veterinarian, Dr. Stephen Ayres, is certified and trained to provide a series of services, including routine treatments and emergency or surgical care. 

A Pet's Home Away From Home

Our qualified, friendly staff provides a home-away-from-home for your beloved animals. Comfortable facilities for exams, overnight stays, and observation, combined with familiar faces and caring attitudes will put your pets at ease while they are being treated. This reduces stress and aids the healing process. 

A Pet's First and Last Defense

Wellness exams, treatment for ailments or injuries, and treatment for life-threatening illnesses is just part of the services we provide. The Venetian Pet Hospital also provides educational and informative articles and nutritional guidance to empower you to make the most out of your time with your pet. 

Wellness exams provide a solid history for care and preventative medicine. They also help in the event of emergencies by providing doctors with vital information, such as allergies, previous illnesses, and genetic markers that would indicate the possibility of future problems. These are your pet's first defense in remaining healthy. 

Animals are regularly exposed to the dangers of parasites, injuries, and genetic disorders, making wellness exams an important part of routine care. Your veterinarian, using up-to-date medical practices, medication, and equipment, is your pet's last defense against heartworms, infections, and needless suffering from hidden diseases. 

Pay on Your Terms at the Venetian Pet Hospital

As a veterinarian that understands the need to make services affordable, Dr. Stephen Ayres has made PETLY PLANS readily available for handling the expenses of ongoing care. This effectively removes the main obstacle many pet owners face in caring for their family pets and provides animals with the benefit of regular veterinary care. 

The Family-Centric Veterinarian's Office

The Venetian Pet Hospital provides families with a child-friendly, pet-friendly waiting room that makes everyone comfortable while they wait for the doctor. This takes the stress out of the situation to keep children and pets (and parents) calm.

The pet and children will come to associate our office with a fun, safe experience, leading to pleasant visits and the right example for children to follow as they grow with their pets.
