    Shalesa Kovash

    Shalesa has been an integral part of our reception team here at VCA Kent Animal Hospital since 2012. Shalesa grew up in Enumclaw, Washington and graduated from Ashmead School of Massage in 2007. She then went on to get her level one equine massage certification the same year. A self-described "country girl through and through" when not at work, she is usually out riding her horses and is very active with her drill team, Stirrin’ Dust. Besides her 3 horses, Poncho, Colt and Becky, Shalesa shares her home with 4 cats: Monsoon (aka Lulu), Itchy, C.B. and Tank (aka Tank weenie) As if things weren’t already crazy enough, we can’t forget about her awesome dogs Baylee and Chevy.


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.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
