  • Angela and DR. Fox are great

    -Lee Benton from Temecula, CA

    This place is the best! Angela who spoke with me on the phone went out of her way to help me feel at ease; she is so gracious and kind. Dr. Fox, who also is compassionate and loving, as well as a very nice technician helped my cat as well as me to feel comfortable. I'm very grateful for their kindness and would go back happily when I have a new animal.


    -Eileen Rosenow from Temecula, CA
    Pet Name: Smudge

    Pet Image VCA staff and veterinarians are the best I have ever seen. After 3 years of their caring for my 2 cats and 1 guinea pig I recommend VCA El Rancho to all my petloving friends. Groomer Susan always is so friendly when I bring Creampuff the guinea pig in for a haircut. Dr. Giam was so supportive and compassionate in helping me through saying goodbye to my 18 year old cat, Smudge only this week. The sympathy card she sent me was so comforting. Thank you so much to all of you at VCA!

  • Best Vet in the Valley

    -Karen from Murrieta, CA

    Have been coming to El Rancho for years and they have the best vets and staff in the valley! I recommend them to everyone I meet.

  • Love Dr. Brennan and Dr. Ito

    -Margaret, Zynfyndel's Mom from Newport Beach, CA
    Pet Name: Zynfyndel

    Pet Image Although our beloved Zyn went to heaven on the last day of winter at the VCA in Spokane, WA on 03/19/09... It was Dr. Brennan who cared for her during the last two years of her life. Giving her the best possible tender loving care. She's an excellent doctor, and surgeon.

    I remember the last time Zyn saw Dr. Brennan and it still brings tears to my eyes. We were moving to northern Idaho and Dr. Brennan said good-bye to our Zyn last December. Dr. Brennan said how much she loved her and what a sweet pup she was.

    Every time we saw Dr. Brennan, I knew she really cared about our Zyn and all of our other "kids" too: Kennwood (Woof) and Chester.

    I can't recommend her enough!!! And Dr. Ito is wonderful, too if Dr. Brennan isn't available.

    We love you both and are glad to be home in California again... See you soon!!!

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist.

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.
