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.

I Want to Share My Experience
Sandra Medock from Laguna Hills

I had a little wheelchair dog who was running out of options. Traditional vet care was no longer working. Dr. Gordon approached Barneys issues on a more holistic level. We started vitamin therapy and weekly acupuncture. The results were amazing. His condition became manageable. Barney was up and rolling for another 3 years. Barney has crossed the rainbow bridge and I am forever grateful for the care and compassion of the staff at VCA Arroyo Animal Hospital. I now have nine rescued furry friends and I totally entrust their well-being to Arroyo. This is a beautiful facility and the level of care your pet receives is beyond excellent. I will never go anywhere else.
