    Joni Dysart

    Hi, ya'll.  I'm Joni Dysart.  I'm originally from Louisiana but I got to Dallas as soon as I could!  It has always been a dream of mine to work with animals and I finally got the opportunity in June of 2012 when I started at VCA Lakewood.  I have a beautiful white cat, appropriately named Lily.  I consider it a job perk to be able to meet all the pets that come into our hospital.  It is also a pleasure to see our clients and to work with our dedicated, caring staff.

    Sherry McNamara

    I have been with VCA Lakewood since Nov. 1st  1999.  Never in my life have I enjoyed a Job as much as I love my job here.  It's such a pleasure to see all of my furry friends everyday, and their parents feel like family to me.  I am the proud mother of 3 great children, 4 wonderful grandchildren, and  one grand dog by the name of Miss Foxxy.  I am without any pets of my own  at the present, but I know one day soon my next one will find me.  I have learned so much about this business from our wonderful doctors, technicians (past and present) and Bridgette, our Hospital Manager.  Our clients and their pets are the main reason I have been here as long as I have and will be here for a long time to come!

    Mark Soto

    I was born in San Antonio, Texas. Most of my life I was raised in the town of Rockwall, Texas. My legacy is to insure that all people are treated equally and that just because we are all different doesn’t mean that we can’t all bring something to the table (with a floral center piece of course). I also believe that we can accomplish anything in life if we always put our best foot forward, with matching accessories of course (just because you have a great chandelier doesn’t mean you don’t need the furniture and the drapes).

    My hobbies are to collect friends that I don’t know yet and to make sure that they are always happy, regardless of what the day may bring. My best friends are my mom and my dad, with out them I wouldn't be the person that I am today. The love of my life is Brian, with out him I would have no comic relief!

    I think I have the best dogs ever. Prada, my first, is the sweetest little girl.  Max can only be described as the most laid back dog you’ll ever meet.

    Behind my back my friends will say, "if God had not invented mirrors, what would he do?” If the truth be known……they’re right. I’d like to think of all the people in my life as diamonds, if I can’t wear them how would people know how they bring the sparkle to my life!!! I hope when I vacation in heaven I can stand before God and say I had used up all the talents he gave me!!

    Breelan Statham

    Hi there!  My name is Breelan and I am from Heath, TX.  In August I moved to Uptown with my childhood friend Brooklyn and we are enjoying every second!  My favorite pastime is spending the day on the farm with my parents and three younger sisters.  On the farm we enjoy riding our horses, Cowboy & Chief and taking care of our three brand new cows!.  I have two family dogs, a chocolate lab named Lily and a border collie named Blaze.  I also own a pup of my own, he is a border collie/blue heeler mix named Jack and he 's the happiest and most playful dog ever!  I have always had a strong passion for helping animals and I am super thankful to have received the opportunity to work at VCA Lakewood Animal Hospital with people who share the same desire.


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.
