  • Such skill, love and compassion

    -Stephanie and Will Rainwater from Columbia, MD
    Pet Name: Sierra

    We've been taking our dog, Sierra to VCA Centre Park since we got her in 2000. Our poor girl was plagued with all kinds of crazy allergies and chronic ear infections, along with other various ailments. Each time we pulled up, there was a bit of reluctance in her leash pulling - but ultimately, she knew we were there to help her feel better. At times, we'd need to put a muzzle on her - and then the good folks there could do what they needed to do. Sadly, this morning, we took our last trip to VCA Centre Park to help get Sierra's transportation to the Rainbow Bridge. Dr. Holmes and April helped ensure that her trip was done so humanely, and that we were able to take our time to say goodbye. I cannot say THANK YOU enough to the excellent staff at VCA for helping our little brown dog through her health issues. Dr. Holmes, Dr. Springer and the entire staff are just absolutely top notch. We will keep coming back - but our other dog, Russia, is a bit of a nervous Nellie - so the challenge is on!

  • I Love My Vet

    -Shorty's Mom from Baltimore, MD
    Pet Name: Shorty

    I have been bringin stray animals to this hospital since I worked in Columbia in 2008. I recently was given a puppy for Christmas and knew exactly where I wanted to take him. My dog, who had been very shy and timid, came to life right before my eyes. Not to mention he has the biggest crush on his vet Dr. Springer. They entire team made me feel that I was doing what was best for Shorty and made me want to continue to be the best mom I could for him. Thank you all!!


    -Jeri St. John from Columbia, MD

  • Country Vet

    -Mary Ann Erlitz from Elkridge, MD

    My pets have been patients of the VCA Centre Park Drive for several years. With every visit you get the feeling of a country vet office welcoming you home. The service is professional, yet personalized. Receiving a friendly greeting means so much, especially when there are concerns about your pet's health. Drs. Holmes, Springer and Davis, along with their staff, are the best!

  • Jurnee

    -Michelle Sanders from Laurel, MD
    Pet Name: Jurnee

    Jurnee, my new rottie puppy loves to pull Dr. Holmes' beard. He takes it in stride. The staff make Jurnee feel like the little princess that she is. Dr. Holmes is very compassionate and sacrificed his Christmas holiday in 2011 to take care of my other rottweiler, Emily, who had to be put to sleep and subsequently crossed Rainbow Bridge. Ironically, Emily is an angel watching over her little sister, Jurnee, who plays with Emily's toys and not the ones that I purchased for her.

  • Emily

    -Michelle Sanders from Laurel, MD
    Pet Name: Emily

    Dr. Holmes is a great vet! He understands Emily, a diva of a rottweiler. Emily loves going to the vet because she is treated well by all the staff.

  • The Best Care

    -Henry Ziegler from Columbia, MD
    Pet Name: Zollie

    For almost 30 years, I have been bringing my pets to Dr. Tayman and now VCA at Centre Park. The staff at Centre Park is always very professional and courteous and there is never a long wait to see the vet. The care and love they showed to my Scottish Terrorist in a long term cancer treatment was wonderful and they made sure that he was always comfortable and happy - even when the treatments weren't very much fun. I recommend VCA-CP unequivocally.
