Pet of the Month

Congratulations to Bumble our February Pet of the Month!

Congratulations to Suzie our January Pet of the Month!

Congratulations to Emerson our December Pet of the Month!

Congratulations to Lionel our November Pet of the Month!

Lionel is a service dog in training and hopes to someday be able to assist someone with a physical disability (other than blindness). He lives with his volunteer puppy raiser family, who besides loving and caring for him, will teach him 30 commands and socialize him in all sorts of environments during the 1 1/2 years that he will be with them. His family will send him off to "college" for 6 months where he will learn really cool things like turning on and off lights, picking up dropped items and opening doors. He will even learn to get something out of the refrigerator! When he is about 2 years old he will be placed with his partner, at no cost to them, and will fulfill his dream of helping someone live a more independent life. The non-profit organization that is helping Lionel realize his dream is Canine Companions for Independence and you can learn more about them at

Congratulations to Moose our October Pet of the Month!

Congratulations to Daisy our September Pet of the Month!

Daisy aka Daisy May, Day Day, Schmeagle, Naughty Pants, Daisy May Ness-Causey. Daisy, a tiny beagle, who is 7 years old has a lot of nicknames. She loves food, sniffing for food, bones, treats and anything food related. Her past-times include napping under her Moms clean and nicely hung clothes, waiting for scraps under our feet as we cook, hiding under beds and in the bathtub, and attempting to lick dishes as we load the dishwasher. Her best tricks are rolling over, "arfing" and waving hello and goodbye. Her nose often gets her in trouble and she can always be convinced to do something if the word "treat" is involved. She is spoiled rotten and we can't imagine life without her.

Congratulations to Rue our August Pet of the Month!

Congratulations to Boomer our July Pet of the Month!

Congratulations to Joey our June Pet of the Month! 

Joey is a sweet 8 year old border collie/aussie mix that has been the joy of our lives. We got him at Dumb Friends League when he was about 9 months old and have had the most wonderful time with this sweet dog. He loves playing in Cheesman Park, which is his back yard, and he loves to shake people down for treats. Joey got his "season pass" this year so he can hang out with his Daddy at Vail. We can't imagine life without Joey.

Congratulations to Woodson Lou our May Pet of the Month!

Congratulations to Simba our April Pet of the Month!







Congratulations to Leo our March Pet of the Month!


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. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

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.
