  • Dental Surgery

    -Kelly from Wilmington, DE
    Pet Name: Angel

    Dr. Laurie worked very hard prepping my dog for dental surgery and did an excellent job! Within 24 hours of the surgery, she was eating, barking, and bright-eyed with no after affects. I'm most grateful and appreciative to the veterinarians, technicians, and staff for all they did to help Angel! Thank you.

  • Dr. Herrman

    -Leona V.R. from Abingdon, MD
    Pet Name: Bubblegum

    Pet Image I was looking for a vet before I purchased my mini pot belly pig. There were no vets in MD. that would see one. Then I found Dr. Herrman, that was 5 years ago. I did purchase my pig and Dr. Herrman has been her vet since she was about 3 months old. The entire staff has been wonderful whether its for a check up or emergency. I am truly satisfied with the services we've needed and that everyone just loves Bubblegum.

  • great care

    -Mary Ann Mclane from Wiomington, DE
    Pet Name: Sherman

    I was just at the VCA on Kirkwood Highway, very concerned about my cat Sherman, who seemed to be losing weight. Dr. Herman was very thorough, gentle, and compassionate at the visit. I left confident that we will find out what is happening with Sherman. Thanks so much!

  • Thirty Years of the Best Pet Care

    -susan good from wilmington, DE

    When we moved to Delaware almost 30 years ago, one of our first contacts was with Kirkwood VCA, for care and treatment of our new puppy. That was 5 dogs and 9 cats ago and we have experienced nothing but the best care along with love and compassion.

  • Compassionate Care

    -Frank from Wilmington, DE

    We recently faced the very difficult decision to put our dog, Emily, to sleep. She was more than just a pet, she was, after nearly 15 years, a member of our family. Dr. DeMarco and the entire staff could not have been more kind to us as we went through an extremely emotional time in our lives. From the time we walked in each member of the staff made us feel as if they understood what we were going through. I wanted to say thank you that day, but never got the chance. Today we received a sympathy card signed by the entire staff. Thank you all for caring and helping us through a very traumatic time.

  • over and above the call of duty

    -J. meeley from New Castle, DE
    Pet Name: Maximus

    I am so lucky to have found Dr. DeMarco and the wonderful staff at VCA Animal Hospital. The night before my puppy Max was due in to get neutered the lovely ladies at VCA called me and asked if I wanted to bring Max in that night cause the weather was going to be snowy, icy, and rainy the morning of our appointment. Free of charge too! Can't tell you the last time someone went above and beyond for my safety and Max's as well. So glad I found them!

  • Relief, then Delight

    -Rose and John from Newark, DE
    Pet Name: Gus and Dude

    We've never boarded our cats before. Satisfied with every other service VCA Kirkwood Animal Hospital has ever provided, we chose their boarding services. We did check other places, but none were special. But mostly, we trust VCA Kirkwood. We're so glad!The staff was as friendly as they were professional and informative! They answered ever one of the huge list questions we had. Our cats were well taken care of and looked fabulous when we picked them up. Thank you to the entire wonderful staff for taking care of our pets...and their "parents!" :)

The service of the staff is very good and the place is very clean. Hospital facility is good and the staff are extremely helpful and good!

  • Awesome Service

    -Monica from Newark, DE
    Pet Name: Oreo, Teddy, and Furdell

    I had a great experience at VCA Kirkwood Animal Hospital. The staff were all very professional and extremely friendly. I felt that they all really cared and took wonderful care of my three dogs. I am glad I choose to go there.

  • Excellent Care

    -Chrissy LaFrancis from Wilmington, DE
    Pet Name: Wolfie

    Pet Image In receiving care for our Diabetic Pomeranian, Wolfie, our expectations were always exceeded. We could not have asked for a more compassionate and knowledgeable staff during the 17 years of services provided by VCA Kirkwood Animal Hospital. They have definitely become part of our family.


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.
