In 2001 Dr. Dalia Mathan extensively remodeled the old building that once housed Kinship Veterinary clinic, located at 1509 Wagstaff Road, across from Rite-Aid in Paradise. It had been sitting empty for more than 5 years and had been vandalized over the years; They did a complete makeover of the building and grounds to make it a prize winning establishment.

The hospital is now a bright warm and welcoming environment for you and your pets.

Fully equipped and staffed, we are prepared to provide quality veterinary care to your best friends. This practice has always emphasized personal service and individual care.

  • "Love this place. Love Dr. Mathan. She is very caring for animals. They see my 2 kittens and my senior dog. My dog normally hates visits, but since I've been going here, he loves it and doesn't give me a hard time. They treat my animals with love and respect. Very affordable place."
