Sierra Vet Hospital provides year round care for our residents and appreciate the long lasting relationships we have with our local clients and their pets. We also welcome out of town visitors and want to provide comfort in knowing that while you are enjoying Tahoe, we are here to help you with your animals when you are in need. Our staff will work in conjunction with your primary vet to create a course of action to maintain the best care for your animal. We are here to handle unexpected emergencies and want to help to get your pet back to your regular veterinarian for follow-up care.

Our goal at Sierra is to offer quality care for our patients and help educate our clients. Please call us with questions, to schedule an appointment, boarding, or emergency care while vacationing in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
