Welcome to Wildwood South in San Jose! We are a privately owned, single doctor practice that specializes in small and exotic animal medicine. We offer a broad range of services including wellness exams, anesthetic procedures, dentistry, digital x-rays, boarding, acupuncture and chiropractic care. Our knowledgeable and caring staff are committed to providing your pet with the highest quality medical care while also comforting and soothing them to make them feel like family. *Dr. Welsh is highly allergic to rabbits and chinchillas, therefore we are unable to treat either at this location.*

Our sister hospital, Wildwood North, in Redwood City, specializes in and solely treats avian and exotic pets. Dr. Sanders and his staff are extensively trained and knowledgeable in exotic veterinary medicine, and have a real passion for these types of pets. This location offers exotic exams, grooming, laboratory testing, x-rays and acupuncture. This location also carries a large variety of nutritional, housing and enrichment products for birds, reptiles and other exotic pets.

We are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential to the ongoing success of your animal’s health. If you have any questions, call 408-265-8811 or email wildwood.sj@gmail.com and we'll promptly get back to you. Our veterinary hospitals are very easy to get to -- just check out the map below!
