We Love VCA Lakeside
Linda Q from Big Bear City

The staff and Doctors at VCA Lakeside are wonderful. They are knowledgeable and always helpful and honestly and truly love animals. Dr. Thomas compassionately cared for our senior dog for several years after we moved to Big Bear. She is now the primary vet for our puppy and showing the same compassion and level of expertise that we have come to expect from VCA. She takes the time to our answer questions and makes sure we are comfortable with the treatment. Thanks Dr. Thomas and everyone at VCA Lakeside!
