About Sahuaro Vista Veterinary Clinic

Sahuaro Vista Veterinary Clinic (SVVC) is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical, dental care as well as alternative therapies. Dr. Andrew Carlton and his team provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of referral laboratories. We also work closely with local practices when special diagnostic procedures are required. SVVC includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-hospital x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and a separate closely supervised quarantine area for those cases in need.

At Sahuaro Vista Veterinary Clinic we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy. We believe in providing caring, consistent, and thorough clinical services to your pet. Whether you are visiting for a routine, affordable cost procedure or an emergency visit, you can expect the same level of excellent care- every visit.

Sahuaro Vista recognizes the need for alternative therapy for our four legged companions and our Managing Veterinarian, Dr. Andrew Carlton and his Associate, Dr. Rachel Temkin of Sahuaro Vista Veterinary Clinic, proudly announce the addition of K-Laser Class IV therapeutic laser treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing. “We are very excited to offer these treatments to our patients,” said Dr. Carlton, “Lasers have been used in Europe for dozens of years, but are relatively new here in the US. The K-Laser is an effective treatment for many conditions.” Conditions such as lick granulomas, stomatitis, snake, Gila monster, or spider bites, scorpion stings, sprains/strains, post-surgical incisions, cystitis, hip dysplasia, hot spots can be treated with the K-Laser. Dr. Carlton even used this treatment on his own pet that was suffering from acute disc disease and was amazed at her improved quality of life.
