    Oscar Martinez
    School: Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology, 2007

    My name is Oscar and I have lived in the Coachella Valley most of my life. I graduated from Coachella Valley High School in 2004. I went to Long Technical College in Phoenix Arizona to study and become a Veterinary Technician. While in school I worked for Dr. Hirsch in Phoenix for a year and a half. I missed my family and decided to move back to the Coachella Valley with my six year old son and two cats (Fiona and Phelix). I have added two dogs to our family, a male mastiff mix (Ruphus) and a female pomeranian (zhu zhu). I have been here at VCA All Creatures for the past five years. The staff and clients have enriched my professional and personal experiences. I love being able to put the sparkle back into the eyes of our four legged family members.

    Ryan Whitlow

    My name is Ryan. I was raised in Palos Verdes and moved to Santa Barbara after high school. I have over 23 years working with animals and that is my passion. I moved to the desert in 2004 to be closer to my parents. They retired in Rancho Mirage. I thought it would be a good environment to raise my children. I have four beautiful boys, Robin, Nathaniel, Sammy and Louie, who are my life. I enjoy helping people with their animals and have really enjoyed joining the VCA All Creatures Animal Hospital team. The facility is amazing as well as the staff. I have an upbeat and happy demeanor. I look forward to getting to know the clients and being an asset to the hospital.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
