About Us

Hello! We are Montecito Animal Clinic. We are a small, privately owned, veterinary office offering Health Checks, Preventative Care, Vaccinations, Dentistry, Basic Surgery, Diagnostics, Micro-chipping and Radiography.  We have been in business and in the same location for over 30 years! Dr. Foster founded the clinic in 1970 and sold the practice to Dr. March in 2001 and stayed on staff until June 2014 when he retired. We have the great pleasure of having loyal clients who have maintained long lasting relationships with doctors and staff. We pride ourselves on having those client relationships based on honesty, respect, trust and compassion and work to bring new clients the same level of service.  We have two doctors on staff to see patients: Dr. Katrinka March, and Dr. Karen Shore.
