We provide veterinary services for every stage in your pet's life, from her first shots to a lifetime of preventive care to keep her happy and healthy.

Our services don't end at our hospital doors.  As a member of the VCA family, our veterinarians have access to extensive medical resources, not the least of which is the VCA knowledge base, which allows our doctors to tap into the collected knowledge of over 2,000 VCA veterinarians.

And if your pet ever needs truly advanced veterinary care, VCA Specialty Hospitals are ready to help.  These twenty-eight clinics provide state-of-the-art care in orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, advanced oncology, and even such cutting-edge treatments as stem cell therapy.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Desert Animal Hospital is made up of 60 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, and each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for you and your pet.

If things get very 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 the very first person you speak to, to the person who checks you and your pet out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.

Dr. Mindy, mans' best friend's best friend.
James Bahm from Rancho Mirage

After nearly thirteen year of exemplary care its hard to imagine anything but. Our Weimaraner, Gus (now 13 years) has been under the care of Dr. Byers actually since just prior to being weaned and coming home. Straightforward, no nonsense medicine, counseling and owner training, all delivers with the most genuine brand of concern and love for animals. Dr. Mindy has always been there for our family. Always. As testimony to the level of quality and comprehensive care, after Gus needed unexpected vet care while we were traveling the Dr. that we encountered estimated Gus's age to be 2-3 years. At the time, he was 11.
We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Mindy in our family. There simply is no greater care possible for your pet.
