  • I would recommend this business

We have frequented this veterinarian clinic for many years now with numerous pets. Doctors and staff are patient and caring people. They take the time to explain things thoroughly and always have the pet's welfare as their first interest. We would never go anywhere else unless the doctors here recommended a specialist for one of our pets.

Customer Testimonials

Where do I start? I have never written a review on anyone or anything prior to this. Now its time to thank everyone at Alta Rancho Pet & Bird Hospital. You are all incredible. I have been taking all my pets to Dr. Kathy for almost close to 20 yrs. (give or take). I know its been just about as long as she has been at Alta Rancho Pet & Bird Hospital. I have been through a lot with my
babies and Dr. Kathy has ALWAYS fought for every one of them. She never gives up & always has my babies quality of life put first. She has been my rock for so many years with so many of my babies. I trust her implicitly. I even moved out of the area in 2005 & I still won't take my babies any where else. I absolutely adore & trust Dr. Kathy! I want to thank you ALL & a Very Special THANK YOU to you DR. KATHY for EVERYTHING throughout the years & through all the ups & downs. As my sister Dr. Cindy Vaughn Barnes D.V.M. CEO of Prescott Area 24hr Emergency Pet Hospital & Founder/CEO of Shepherd Veterinarian Software told me...."how lucky I am to have Dr. Kathy". I already knew that but it meant a lot to me especially if you knew my sister. I will never be able to thank you enough for everything Dr. Kathy I adore you...THANK YOU


Dr. Schufer is very thorough and a great listener. I appreciate that he always makes himself available for phone calls. He even called to check on my dog the day after his appointment. All of the staff is friendly and helpful.


Squeezed me in for an emergency requiring surgery. The staff stayed with me until 7pm. They're all wonderful!

From Our Website

Alta Rancho Pet and Bird Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital treating dogs, cats and birds. Our hospital offers cutting edge medical and surgical diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. These range from preventive medical services; such as immunizations, nutritional counseling, and parasite control to internal medicine issues as well as bone, joint and soft tissue surgery. We are housed in a 3200-square foot facility. Our facility has three consultation/exam rooms, complete dental suite, surgical suite, laboratory, pharmacy, isolation ward, radiology department and boarding kennel.


Cryosurgery is used to remove minor skin lesions, such as sebaceous cysts, skin tags, warts and more by freezing them with liquid nitrogen or other cryogens. Cryosurgery is used all the time by human dermatologists and other surgeons. We are now able to offer this service at Alta Rancho Pet & Bird Hospital in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Cryosurgery works by rapidly freezing cells, causing ice crystals to form within those cells. The ice crystals break down normal cellular structures and cause the death of the cell.


Nutrition is one of the most important factors in maintaining good health for the pets in Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, Ontario, Claremont, Fontana, and the Inland Empire. Proper nutrients are necessary for every organ system in the body to function properly. Nutritional deficiencies as well as excesses are a major problem in veterinary medicine. When we examine your pet, we will evaluate their nutritional status and make specific recommendations regarding proper nutrition for your pet. We have a variety of prescription diets for each life stage and medical condition that we may be faced with.


If you have not made your first appointment yet, you can do so by calling our reception desk at(909) 980-3575. In order to speed up your first appointment, it is very helpful if you fill out our new client paperwork before coming in. Alternatively, you can bring them with you to your first appointment. When you come for your pet's appointment, please be sure to have your dog on a leash that will not slip over his or her head. Cats, birds, reptiles and pocket pets should be in a carrier or cage to keep everyone safe.


Having pets is great for companionship, but there are times when taking your pet with you when you are traveling is not a practical option. The same is true when you have house guests who may be allergic to your pet, or they just don't get along for one reason or another. It is during these times when you need to find safe pet boarding with access to a vet in Rancho Cucamonga. As an animal hospital in Rancho Cucamonga, Alta Rancho Pet & Bird Hospital is a great choice for pet boarding in Rancho Cucamonga, because we give you access to a veterinarian in Rancho Cucamonga CA that will provide your pet with the great care and attention they deserve, and will leave you with peace of mind that your pet is in good hands while you can't be with them.
