    Alicia F

    I love being a part of VCA Animal Care Hospital.  I have always had a passion for helping and taking care of animals.  I am a volunteer at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota in the mammal nursery, which I love. It has been a very rewarding experience for me. My dream is to one day have a hobby farm of my own.  I currently reside in South Minneapolis with my boyfriend, my dog Jinx, my cat Gracie, and my rabbit Ringo. Outside of work I enjoy biking around lakes and trails, traveling, spending time with my family and spoiling my animals.

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.

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.
