VCA Decatur Animal Hospital


  • Hospital Administrator

    Kristine Wahpeconiah

    I was born and raised in Riverside, CA and moved to Las Vegas in 2003, shortly after moving I got a job at VCA Decatur. My job titles at VCA Decatur have been Receptionist, Office Manager, and Veterinary Assistant. I was promoted to Hospital Administrator in 2008. I am very grateful to have a job that I enjoy and to work with such great people who love and deeply care for our clients and their pets.

    During my free time I enjoy spending time with my 9 year old daughter Katelyn. I have 11 year old Siamese Mix named Keebler and an 8 year old Dachshund named Ginger.


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.

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.
