VCA American River Animal Hospital

Dr. Gina Terpolilli, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of California, Davis


I graduated from UC Davis in 2012 and spent a year doing my internship at Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic.  I love everything veterinary medicine has to offer, from internal medicine to surgery, but my passion lies in the human-animal bond we have the fortune of seeing every day. I am so very lucky to be in a career that allows me to care for the beloved pets of so many families.  I currently live in Folsom with the loves of my life, Shelby (a black lab) and Mr. Kitty.


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.
