    Valerie V.

    Valerie has been working at VCA Almaden Valley since 2012.  She is currently attending college to become an EMT/Paramedic.  When she started here she adopted an orange tabby named Gremlin from one of our litters of kittens that needed homes and then recently adopted Peter Parker (seen in picture) from us as well.  The other animal members of her family include Dutchess (a 16 year old Beagle), and CJ (a 9 year old Shih Tzu).  Her future goals are to work as a trained veterinary technician as well as continuing her work training as an EMT/Paramedic.


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.
