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 specialize in holistic care, including acupuncture and chriopractic. We also offer stem cell therapy.

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

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Arroyo is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this 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. In a word: TEAMWORK!

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From check-in to check-out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.

ALWAYS THERE FOR OUR DOGS AND US
Dave and Franca from San Clemente

Our testimonial could be a novel, so we're keeping it short and sweet. Dr. Gordon has shown all of our dogs the best loving care, whether its basic wellness, acupuncture or surgery, we know our dogs are in the best hands. For us, Dr. Gordon takes the time to talk and explain everything and then answer all our questions, no matter when we think of them. In the end it comes down to trust -- and Dr. Gordon is who we trust to take care of our boys.
