Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Located in the heart of the Goleta Valley the health care team here at VCA Noah’s Ark is here to serve you and your pets. We believe pets are family and are happy to have been serving the families of Goleta, Santa Barbara, Isla Vista and Lompoc for the last 20 years. We have 3 doctors on staff to take excellent care of your pet and offer a wide range of services that include wellness exams, health certificates, dental care, digital radiography, surgical procedures, vaccinations as well as treating any ailment your pet may have. Not only do we treat dogs and cats, but we are also happy to see your bunny, Guinea pig,  lizard, snake, tortoise, bird or chicken. If you are traveling, or need to have a place for your feline companion to stay we offer boarding for your kitty in our Cat Resort as well.

New to VCA?

We provide veterinary services for every stage in your pet's life, from her first shots to a lifetime of preventive care to keep her happy and healthy.

Our services don't end at our hospital doors.  As a member of the VCA family, our veterinarians have access to extensive medical resources, not the least of which is the VCA knowledge base, which allows our doctors to tap into the collected knowledge of over 2,000 VCA veterinarians.

And if your pet ever needs truly advanced veterinary care, VCA Specialty Hospitals are ready to help.  These twenty-eight clinics provide state-of-the-art care in orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, advanced oncology, and even such cutting-edge treatments as stem cell therapy.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Noah's Ark is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this mission the hospital team relies on several individuals, where each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From the very first person you speak to, to the person who checks you and your pet out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.
