About Us

Results oriented preventative, routine and emergency medical care for your pet. 

Dr. Riehl and Dr. Thomas share a strong commitment to your pet’s health and well being. Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo (AVCSE) is a full service animal hospital providing routine and emergency medical, surgical and dental care. Whether your pet needs a vaccination to prevent illness, or a life-saving emergency surgery, the doctors and staff of Advanced Veterinary Care are up to the challenge.

We have hand selected our nurses to provide compassionate care for your family pet and to have the experience to skillfully assist in life and death emergency situations.

Our commitment to you is that we will offer the best medical care possible and always treat your pet in a manner that is kind, gentle, respectful and professional.
