  • One of the Best

    -Anne from Los Angeles, CA
    Pet Name: Jake

    Pet Image Our visit was great. I appreciate the cleanliness of the hospital, the knowledge of the staff, and the warmth and caring of the doctors. They treated our pet like he was one of their own. It was a great visit!

  • Great Service and Care When Needed Most

    -Kevin J. from Encinitas, CA
    Pet Name: Stripes

    In short, I brought my 17 year old manx with acute kidney failure to VCA Bonita. Dr. Lane and the VCA staff treated my little girl for the next five days. She has since regained most of her health and is thriving again. Of course, Stripes was fortunate enough to have the health to respond positively to treatment, but I was impressed with the degree of care and communication provided by both Dr. Lane and the staff at a time when my little girl's health and life was truly in question. My many thanks to their combined efforts and for caring to make a difference. Stripes thanks them too!

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.
