    Krista Carlsson
    Veterinary Tech School: Foothill College

    Krista is a native San Franciscan and currently one of our Veterinary Assistants. She has always had a passion for helping animals. After the age of 13, she began working closely with all types of animals as a volunteer at the San Francisco Zoo; she worked her way up to Animal Keeper and loved it. She worked closely with the Veterinary staff to keep the animals healthy and enriched and she soon realized that being a Veterinary Technician was her dream.  Before coming to our hospital, Krista spent almost 5 years working as a Veterinary Assistant at a cat only practice. Krista has a special connection with our feline friends and understands their unique needs. She is our cat champion here and we are proud that we are a Silver Certificate Feline Friendly practice. Krista is currently attending Foothill college to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.

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.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. 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.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
