Since 1986, Santa Ana, California area has known Alton Main Animal Hospital as the place for dedicated care for the other family memeber.
We try to approach every case with every patient as if that patient were our own pet. We also believe that prevention of disease is far better than treatment of a disease that could have been prevented. Therefore, we emphasize puppy and kitten care programs, annual exams, wellness blood profiles, and appropriately scheduled vaccines and parasite control.
We have a well-equipped surgery suite for general, orthopedic, and cosmetic procedures, with emphasis on pain prevention and control. We offer reasonably priced spays and neuters that include multi-system anesthetic monitoring, absorbable sutures, and post operative pain management. We also Emphasize good dental health for middle-aged and senior pets.
