About Us

We Are San Francisco Veterinarians

We are at Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital for Compassionate Pet Care

Located in the Balboa Park/Ingleside neighborhoods of San Francisco since December of 1969, Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital has played an indispensible role in the San Francisco veterinary care of pets throughout the city. What started as a relatively modest, but skilled and compassionate veterinary animal hospital by San Francisco veterinarians, Al Chafets and Ted Freid, has become a state-of-the-art medical facility under the direction of doctors Parminder Aulakh and Jatinderpal Chahal.
