Caring for pets... and their people, too.

A Wealth of Veterinary Experience at Your Service!

At VCA Animal Hospital, we look forward to welcoming you, your dog, cat and other pets.  Everyone on our staff believes that the better we get to know your pets, the better we can provide the best possible health care for them.  In fact, when you come in, you'll see exactly why our veterinarians are praised for their kind and thorough care.  We'll give you and your pet all the time you need, and never rush through an exam. We'll also carefully track the course of your pet's care, which is so important to your pet's long-term health.

In every case, you'll be served by experienced, knowledgeable members of our staff.  Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other pet-friendly personnel are trained to the highest standards.  Their knowledge of the latest veterinary medicines and procedures ensures that all our pet patients get the best in prevention and healing methods.

New to VCA?

We provide veterinary services for every stage in your pet's life, from her first shots to a lifetime of preventive care to keep her happy and healthy.

Our services don't end at our hospital doors.  As a member of the VCA family, our veterinarians have access to extensive medical resources, not the least of which is the VCA knowledge base, which allows our doctors to tap into the collected knowledge of over 2,000 VCA veterinarians.

And if your pet ever needs truly advanced veterinary care, VCA Specialty Hospitals are ready to help.  These twenty-eight clinics provide state-of-the-art care in orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, advanced oncology, and even such cutting-edge treatments as stem cell therapy.

Our hospital is located in North Highlands, California. We have been in operation for over 40 years and enjoy being a part of this community.  At VCA Highlands Animal Hospital we offer general medicine and specialty care.  We also have an onsite crematorium so that we can respectfully prepare your beloved pets remains to be returned safely back home to you  and your family.

The staff and doctors here at Highlands are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your pets.  We love caring for dogs and cats and  enjoy watching them grow and progress through all their life stages.  Please feel free to stop by and get to know us.  We look forward to seeing you and your pets.
