Why I Do What I Do...

"Like many veterinarians, I knew at very young age that I was going to be a veterinarian. It wasn't until I started as a technician at VCA Newark in 1990 that I truly began to understand what veterinary medicine was all about. It is being an advocate for the pet, an educator, a friend, a confidant for the pet's parents, and a positive role model for the community. With my 23 years of past experience, I truly believe that the staff, clients and pets of VCA Newark are my extended family."


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.
