Nothing but the best....
Rick and Barb T. from Peoria

Since 1999, we have entrusted the care of our cats to the VCA El Mirage Animal Hospital. A more caring, professional, and competent staff would be difficult to find. We are especially grateful to Dr. Waltman (and to Dr. Bender, his predecessor) for their help. Dr. Waltman cares not only for our pets but expresses concern for the "parents," as well. He is everything we hoped to find in a veterinarian. Lady, Moustache, Buttons, Suzy, and Clyde all agree.
