    Ricky Elam

    Ricky's love for animals started at a young age. He has had multiple types of pets, from dogs and cats, to pigs, goats, and horses. He does not have any pets at the moment, but he is always at a friends house playing with their dogs and/or cats. He has a strong passion for music and actually sings to the dogs and cats that are boarding here at VCA McCormick Ranch.

    Ericka Calderon

    Ericka was born in Arizona but moved to California where she lived 16 years.  She moved back to Arizona and joined VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital about 6 months ago.  She has two dogs "Stella" an Italian Greyhound and "Zoe" a Chihuahua-Dachshund mix.  Her love for animals made her change careers and become a groomer.  She loves grooming dogs and cats.  In her spare time, Ericka enjoys hanging out with friends, going to the movies and shopping.

    Stephanie Irvine

    Stephanie is an Illinois native and started her grooming career in 2003.  She loves grooming both cats and dogs. She moved to Phoenix from West Hollywood, California where she was working at another VCA Hospital.  She enjoys spending time outdoors, but Football season is her favorite time of the year.  Her second passion is music (she has a degree in Music Business) and spends most of her free time working with local bands and going to live shows.


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.
