VCA Arrighetti Animal Hospital

Pat McCreight, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Kansas State University


Dr. Pat McCreight earned her DVM from Kansas State University in 1979. Dr. McCreight practiced at Ark Veterinary Associates until she merged it into VCA Arrighetti Hospital in November 2012.

Dr. McCreight is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the New Mexico Veterinary Medical Association. She was on the board of the NMVMA from 1989 to 1994. She was president from 1992-1993.

The best part of veterinary medicine to Dr. McCreight is providing care to both the patient and their owner. She considers it a great privilege to care for an animal from the beginning to the end of their life.

Dr. McCreight enjoys being with her family most of all. She is married, has two sons, a daughter-in-law and (the best) a granddaughter with a grandson on the way.
