  • Best Vet in the Area

    -Lorena Long from Cottonwood, CA
    Pet Name: Mandy

    I have been taking my dog, Mandy, to this clinic for the past 2 1/2 years. I cannot say enough about this place, the staff are the best, very compassionate and understanding. I have boarded my dog here on numerous occasions and she is always happy to see them. Trots off with the staff without a look back (very sad for me). Sadly, I am moving and must find a new vet. I only hope they will be half as good as VCA! Thank you for all your patience and care during these past 2 1/2 years. Keep up the good work, your love for your patients shows through every time!!

  • Gateway Animal Hospital

    -Jessica and Russ from Redding, CA
    Pet Name: Mozart and Moka

    Pet Image People often ask where I take my pets and I always tell them about VCA Gateway Animal Hospital. "Oh my, why go all the way to Anderson for a vet?" is what they say. "Because they're worth every penny in gas!" Dr. Sue was the first vet that saw my dogs over 10 years ago. Dr. Joy put my pet rat to sleep and cried with me. Dr. Tom did surgery on a friend's dog that broke her hip. Dr. Jean just spent over an hour talking to my boyfriend about his German Shepherd and how she is with other vets. Why do we drive out of our way to go to Gateway? Because not only are the veterinarians amazing, so are the vet techs. Kameron worked with our dog today and it was a great experience for all. The receptionists as soon as you walk in the door are always kind and friendly. A familiar face at the front desk is always comforting and Rachael has been there a long time. I have a friend that brings her dog 2.5 hours from Sacramento to keep going to Dr. Jean, Dr. Joy and Dr. Sue. My parents take all there dogs there. We work with rescue dogs and these veterinarians know that we cannot always predict how a rescue dog will react. Thank you to our veterinarians for taking such good care of our beloved pets. From our guinea pigs and rats, to dog and cats! We love you guys!

  • My Experience At Gateway

    -Jolene Shell from Oroville, CA
    Pet Name: Sierra

    Pet Image What a pleasurable experience Sierra & I had at VCA Gateway Vet Hospital. Sierra had knee injuries that required surgery. From the moment we walked in the door for the her first time until Sierra went home from the second surgery, we were treated like VIPs. I can't say enough positive things about this practice & all the staff. They are professional, polite, extremely courteous & compassionate. Dr. Tom Broaddus is the BEST in his surgery specialty. (KNEES) As anyone could imagine how it feels to have your pet go into surgery, well, I was a basket case. Everyone there made me feel calm & strong. In between surgeries Sierra had a small emergency & the staff was more than happy to work us in, they never acted put up on. We had an appt. that same day. I am so pleased to have had the best worry free care for her. Thank you all...

  • Compassionate

    -Melissa Cash from Redding, CA
    Pet Name: Sophie

    Pet Image Dr. Tracy Alexander was amazing with me and my cat Sophie. She was the one who talked to me about Sophie's illness and walked me thru each step, but when it was time to let Sophie go she was really sensitive to my feelings. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else there to help Sophie go to Rainbow Bridge. Thank you Dr. Tracy!!!!

  • Jen's the Best

    -Dena Zink from Redding, CA
    Pet Name: Rella Zink

    Pet Image I have the utmost respect for Jennifer in boarding. As hard as it is to leave my sweet Rella girl with VCA Gateway, I know that she is in the best care possible. I now tell Rella she's going on vacation because I know she gets spoiled while she is in their care! Thank you so much Jennifer and Gateway for making me feel so comfortable and confident in leaving Rella in your care!
