To be true to this mission the hospital team relies on several individuals, where each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

Above and Beyond
Heidi from Romney

We have gone to DR. MILLER since our boxer, Julie, was just a puppy. She has always given the best care and called us personally with pathology results for all her mass cell tumors. She has always gone above and beyond the call of duty. Recently, we were able to meet DR. HEDGES and work with her on removing some cancer by amputating Julie's leg. It was quite traumatic for us and she was very caring and compassionate. She went above and beyond to make Julie comfortable and to keep us informed on her progress. Julie is doing so well and we owe it all to Dr. Hedges and Dr. Miller. I highly recommend VCA Lafayette Animal Hospital.
