New to VCA?

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.

My Vets Are My Friends
Adelaide from Ridgecrest

The wonderful Doctors and Staff at VCA Crestwood Animal Hospital deserve a much-needed pat on the back. They have taken care of all my pets over the years and I wouldn't consider going to anyone else. There have been lots of smiles and a few tears, but I have never felt anything but compassion and genuine care for both my 'kids' and myself. When it comes to top-notch medicine, loving care and knowledgeable professionals, the folks at VCA Crestwood take the prize. P.S. All my kids are so anxious to get into the clinic and say hi to everyone that they almost pull me over! That's how nice everyone is.
