  • Licensed Veterinary Technician

    Elissa Curtin, LVT

    Elissa has been with All Critters since 2000. Elissa and her other half, Kyle, welcomed their first child, Alexander in October of 2005. She started as a Customer Service Representative here but as talented as she is, she was quickly pulled in the back to work as a nurse. Elissa is the brainchild of the many fun and decorative things around the hospital. Elissa, Kyle and Alexander share their Black Diamond home with Josie, a Golden Retreiver/American Staffordshire/Mini Poodle mix (results thanks to the newly available Wisdom Panel), Carly, a Chihuahua mix, Henry, an African Side-necked turtle, and 5 cats: Timmy, Westley, Isabella , Jazz & Captain Jack. When she's not at work Elissa enjoys hiking, camping and family fun!

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.
