Hospital view

 

We at VCA Desert Animal Hospital pride ourselves in the experienced, knowledgeable members of our staff and the quality of care that we give our patients. Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other pet-friendly personnel are trained to the highest standards. Their knowledge of the latest veterinary medicines and procedures ensures that all our pet patients get the best in prevention and healing

In addition to our state-of-the-art hospital we offer an upscale boarding facility. Our extremely quiet kitty suites can expand from 1'4 bedrooms. There is even a playroom for our feline guests, with a TV for their relaxing pleasure. Our canine guests have a choice between glass-fronted boarding suites or you may try our upscale luxury suites, complete with TVs in each room and turn-down service at the end of the evening'complete with a Bones and Scones specially prepared bisquit.

We are very proud of our facility. Come schedule a tour with us so that you can see firsthand our extraordinary facility, and why we were awarded Desert Magazine's 2009 Best of the Valley Pet Boarding finalist.

Local Medical Issues

There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health, and that require your attention over the entire year. For example, there's heartworm, which can affect both cats and dogs. Since it's transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region, it's a serious cause for concern. But since the winter temperatures do not get cold enough here to kill mosquito eggs, it's a year-round risk.

Likewise for the potential for flea and tick infestation, or intestinal parasites, each of which poses a problem in any season.

And finally, contrary to what you'd expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears and scaly skin.
