    “I have always known that I wanted to work with animals. As a child my first word was “dog” and my favorite spot was laying the dog's bed. I have a passion for pets and strive to make a difference in every pet and client’s life.  I have a very rewarding and fulfilling career that I love.  Dog and cat years are to short, I want to stretch them out as long as possible”


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet.

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.
