"I have always loved animals.  When I was 10, I went to India and saw the desperate state of animal health there.  It inspired me to want to do my very best for them in whatever way I could.  But it wasn't until much later I discovered the beauty at the other end of the leash - the pet owners.  I have amazing clients!  Their love, compassion, and commitment to their pets warms my heart beyond words.  I feel so lucky to be part of the process of keeping these families healthy and whole."


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.

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.
