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.

OUR DEEPEST GRATITUDE TO DR. KOODRICH AND STAFF
Aimee peck from palm springs

Our beautiful boxer/pit mix Sassy suddenly became ill with IMHA and we were faced with this disease overnight Dr. Koodrich did what she could but they were not equipped with doing blood transfusions etc... Thank god for Cora (one of the employee's) she suggested we take Sas to VCA All Care in Fountain Valley ... she was at death's door she remained there 4 days had her transfusion and then we were on our way to a long road of meds and doctor visits Dr. Koodrich was like a gift from god her bed side manner was amazing she genuinely cared and unlike most places that will just turn you away due to lack of funds she didn't turn her back on us Sassy's high cost of meds were taking there toll, but we were able to make payments on our doctor visits which were once if not twice a week. Unfortunately Sassy lost her battle after 5 mos of fighting and i don't think i would have emotionally survived had it not been for Dr. Koodrich and the wonderful people at VCA Desert Animal Hospital. Sometimes pure compassion is the one thing that will make the difference ~ people may forget what you do for them , but they will never forget the way you made them feel ~ Thank you for making Sassy and us feel like She was worth the fight.
