Signature pet care for your family

Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art, compassionate care to our patients and excellent customer service to our clients. Our doctors and staff are passionate about caring for pets—you and your furry family members are the reason we come to work every day!

We are a full-service veterinary hospital with 4 full-time doctors who see dogs, cats and rabbits. We have on-site lab and x-ray equipment, which allows us to expedite diagnostic results. We do everything at the hospital from routine vaccinations, to microchips, to orthopedic surgeries. Above all, we give your pet all of the love and care that we would give to our own pets.

Clients and critics agree. Sunset Cliffs Animal Hospital is one of the best veterinary hospitals in San Diego.

Pet Hospital Gold Medal Winner

Dr. Christy Berg purchased the practice in 1996, when it was located near the famed Sunset Cliffs of San Diego. In 2008, we relocated to the thriving, eclectic downtown area of Ocean Beach where we reside today. 


Our veterinary care is provided in an environmentally friendly facility, featuring energy-efficient windows, as well as solar panels that provide approximately 85 percent of the hospital’s power needs.

Hear it from our happy clients!

We pride ourselves on having the best and most satisfied clients. We encourage you to share your experience with us or online via social media or Yelp.

We have a springer spaniel who can be high maintenance. They give wonderful advice, you can see that they truly care, and always supply lots of treats. Our dog pulls towards the vets office!!
