History

Dr. A. H Kleinfeld opened Ambassador Veterinary Hospital as a full-service hospital in 1938, caring for companion animals. His goal was to provide high standard of veterinary care and personalized service. In 1997, Dr. Krish Manoharan took over the veteran practice, and has been an integral member of the Union City community and its animal care for the last 20 years.
