  • Worth a drive

    -Nia from West Sacramento, CA
    Pet Name: Heffalump

    Pet Image I was living close to the Elk Grove VCA the first time I brought my puppy in for his exam and vaccinations. Now, I've moved to West Sacramento, but still drive to Elk Grove when Heffalump needs to go in. All the employees know him by name and give him wonderful attention and care. They are patient and kind and attentive. I have no desire to go anywhere else.

  • Dr. Van Riper and her team are the Best in the Wes

    -Claudia Franson from Rancho Murieta, CA
    Pet Name: Codybear and Gabby

    I've been going to VCA Elk Grove Animal Hospital for probably 20 years. I LOVE everyone there. We've seen every employee at one time or another. They are the most wonderful kind caring professional people. I only have one regret-that is they don't treat people. They call the next day to ask how my dog or cat is doing after a problem or procedure. I've never had my MD do that!
    We love you guys
    Claudia (923) Codybear and Gabby and Grumpy (aka dad)

  • My cats love you

    -Tracey Smith from Elk Grove, CA

    My nine cats love Dr. Van Riper and the way she interacts with them. If my oldest, Cassidy, would leave me, it would be for Dr. Van Riper! Thanks from my crew to the VCA Elk Grove crew for all of your hard work!

  • You Rock

    -Peg Mike from Elk Grove, CA
    Pet Name: Pongo Maezie

    We have been with EG VCA since 2003. Since our first visit we have had nothing but an outstanding experience. First of all Dr. Benjamin Brault (our Dr. for all of these years) is a very thorough and competent Dr. He has treated both of our dogs with excellence from diagnoses to treatment plan to follow-up appointments. He truly has a very personable and caring side. Second: The entire staff is fantastic. Whether on the phone or in person they treat you like a special person. The staff is very knowledgeable and sympathetic with your needs and concerns providing prompt appointments as needed. Outstanding service. We have recommended your facility to many friends. We have never had a bad experience. Thank you all for caring.
