Dr. Bone lives in Citrus Heights with his wife Pamela and his three daughters Sarah, Rachel and Laura. They have a golden retriever, two cats, and a pet rat.
Dr. Bone is involved in many school and local community activities including meet referee for a local swim club and more recently for the Capitol Athletic League Swim Championship. He is also the P.T.A. financial monitor for the El Camino High School Scholarship Fund.

He is especially thankful for the loyalty of his clientele and their acceptance of the VCA Greenback Animal Hospital’s commitment and dedicated services to our loved pets in their times of need.

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.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. 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.
