Cynthia Kinney, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Western University of Health Sciences
BA, University of California, Riverside


Dr. Kinney was born in Colorado and moved to California several years ago. She attended the University of California, Riverside for her Bachelor's degree, and earned her Doctoral degree from Western University in 2007. She loves working with both small and large animals (there is nothing more fun than palpating cows all day!). In her free time, Dr. Kinney loves spending time with her family and friends. She has two dachshunds named Ernie and Winney-Frances. She also enjoys working on her home, reading, anything outdoors, and traveling. She feels strongly that working with animals makes her a better person, and is grateful for the love and strength animals give to their families.


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.
