  • Hospital Manager

    Kristin Fernandez

    Hello, my name is Kristin Fernandez and I'm the hospital manager here at VCA Mission. I've been with the VCA family since September 2008 and joined the VCA Mission family in March 2013. I've always loved animals and currently share my home in Silver Lake with my two dogs, Moxie and Mandie, and two cats, Skitty and Ladybug. I'm incredibly honored and humbled to join this amazing team of doctors and staff and look forward to contributing my part. I'm excited to meet all the clients that come through these doors year after year and making sure that they are cared for as if they were my own.

    Come in and say Hello!


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.
