Local Medical Issues

There are numerous local and medical issues that can impact your pet’s health and that require your attention over the entire year. One example is heartworms. They can affect both dogs and cats. Because it’s transmitted by the mosquito, which thrives in San Antonio, it’s a serious cause for concern. And because the winter temperatures here in San Antonio do not get cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, it is a year-round risk. The same is true for flea and tick infestations and intestinal parasites, each of which poses problems in any season. And finally, contrary to what you’d expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears, and "scaly" skin.

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.
