New to VCA?

In addition to the traditional services you'd expect from a veterinary hospital, we offer pets and pet parents a selection of specialized veterinary services. For example, we have a Board Certified Oncologist and a Board Certified Ophthalmologist that come up from Albuquerque to care for our patients on a routine basis. We also offer Acupuncture to help alleviate pain and increase healing times for pets.

If you aren't sure if we offer a specific service that's important to you, please ask us. We may already offer it, or can refer you to one of our sister animal hospitals in the area or one of our veterinary referral hospitals.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Arrighetti Animal Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to the mission, the hospital team relies on several individuals, each equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet. And if things get complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board-certified specialists.
