    Mercedes Bradshaw

    Hi my name is Mercy and I have been at Metroplex for 5 years with a short break to have my three year old daughter Madisin. I am the proud dog mom to my schnoodle Matilda whom I adopted for our sister company Sound Eklin. We have a cat who is really named Abby but only comes to Kitty Kitty Meow Meow. I started out working in the kennel and am now one of the groomers. As the mom of a toddler I spend much of my free time having tea parties and playing dress up.

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.
