My little dog got really sick this past New Year's weekend and, surprisingly, I could not find any vet open either on Saturday or Sunday in TJ. I couldn't believe in a city this size so near the border there were no vets open and I had to drive all the way to Rosarito.
A friend sent me to Rosarito to a great vet who is open on Sundays. My dog is has been there overnight. I was worried I would have to go to the U.S. and spend triple/quadruple.
It appears most vets even here in TJ are accustomed to treating only minor problems.

Well...my little Pekingese stayed at the vet for 3 days and had kidney failure so was euthanized. This vet has dogs for adoption if anyone is looking for one. I was going to San Diego to find another dog and luckily the vet had 3 really cute small dogs for adoption so I took one and I'm picking him up today after being neutered. If I was living in a house I would have taken all 3 of them.
I've was really impressed with this vet and the staff during a very difficult time for me.

I appreciate a fellow animal lover. I want to mention though that alot of time veterinarians are located inside "Graneros" rather than their own freestanding building. For this reason they sometimes go unnoticed by the Public, unless they are already savvy to that fact. I know this because I go to alot of the graneros to buy chicken food, or to sell my chickens,ducks,pheasants etc and other reasons.
It appears that you have found a vet than you are comfortable with so maybe this info is a little tardy. I wish good health for you and your pooch in the New Year!

Thanks Sugarpaws. I am aware of that as the vet in Rosarito is inside a Granero. I went to 2 vets; one near UABC and one in Otay who advertises they cater to Americans however they were closed.
So now I'm wondering if the majority of vets here in TJ only practice minor (less expensive) vet care and the better vets are in Ensenada or Rosarito where there are more Americans with $$$.
Most of these vets I've encountered here in TJ aren't experienced to deal with a dog with blood in the urine. So guess I'll now be driving to Rosarito for vet care unless I do find a really competent vet here in TJ.

You didn't mention the hours & days open which seems to be an issue here in TJ. Where is Pueblo Amigo for us newbies and which border?

Thanks Shelley for the recommendation. Dr. Ayala is very involved in the animal welfare campaign here in Rosarito. There is another great vet, Dr. Joaquin, that I highly recommend who does low cost spay/neuter.

I have Pekingese dogs (very high maintenance) so if anyone needs information/recommendations on medicines or supplements let me know. I buy most of my medicines (such as eye drops) and supplements such as vitamins at the Farmacia Similares. You just need to adjust the dosage for a dog or cat. If anyone needs help with that, let me know.

I have been very impressed with all the vets I have used in Tijuana and Rosarito. Unlike American vets who require $100+ in tests before they will even give a diagnosis, Mexican vets are able to give diagnoses with an examination; an art which seems to be lost with American vets.

This is good information, Mary Ellen. I reposted the relevant stuff on the Baja Animal Network Group, which is a good site for asking and giving information.
