About Us

Pet Vets is a full service veterinary hospital started by Dr Joe Gachowski and Dr Rod Gilger.  Since opening our doors, on Riley street, in 1991, we have seen many furry companions from Folsom and the surrounding areas, some returning from as far away as Truckee and Marysville.

Our customers can see our compassion when taking good care of their loved ones.  Pet Vets practice grew and we have since welcomed Dr. Tish Starr to our crew of top-quality staff members. Pet Vets employs several Veterinarians, six Registered Veterinary Technicians, and other well-trained staff members to give you and your pet the highest quality care.

Throughout over 20 years of service, our goal has always been to provide the ‘best quality veterinary care at affordable prices’  to your pets.

In May 2010, we moved to 321 Iron Point Rd. In our larger space we can now offer many additional services.  Dog and cat boarding, day care, dog training, grooming and self-dog wash (and cats if you feel brave).
