In addition to the traditional services you'd expect from a veterinary hospital, we offer pets and pet parents a selection of specialized veterinary services. For example, we treat exotic pets, including reptiles, pocket pets and birds. And we provide safe and comfortable boarding for your special companion, so you can count on us to meet all your pet's needs.

If you aren't sure if we offer a specific service that's important to you, please ask us. If we don't already offer it, we can refer you to one of our sister animal hospitals in the area or to one of our veterinary referral hospitals.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Crestwood is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this mission, the hospital team relies on several individuals, each equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

And if things get complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board-certified specialists. In a word: TEAMWORK!

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From check-in to check-out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.

For the Love of Pets and People
Sea Bleau from Ridgecrest

Crestwood is a wonderful veterinary facility filled with medical professionals and staff who care not only about the animals they serve, but their owners as well. I have been a client of Crestwood for 20+ years now and have seen the veterinarians change but the care, service, and love has remained. I have had doctors fight side by side with me to save my beloved pets, and have watched as they've shed a tear with me as I've had to say goodbye to those they have cared for because they too are sad to see them go. The staff are sensitive to the feelings of owners in such delicate situations, and they share in the joy of new additions as well. At Crestwood you feel like you are part of a family, not just taking your pet to the vet. You are taking your pet to friends who you know will care for them and will look out for their best interest, and yours as well. I hope they never change.
