Client Services

  • Client Service

    Robert Villegas

    Robert recently found his calling in the veterinary field and joined our hospital in late 2012. With his winning personality he has established quite a bond with some of our clients and has recently been learning more about assisting the veterinarians with patient exams and proceedures. It's hard to say where you'll find Robert when you come into the hospital for a visit--in the front or back office but one thing is for sure: there will be a smile on his face! Robert lives on a 400 acre ranch and helps to take care of the llama, 6 chickens, 5 cats, and 3 dogs who also call the ranch home. He is depicted above with his dog, Willow.

    Kelly Short

    Kelly joined our team in 2013 after an extended employment history with Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Her previous positions make her a great addition to our team with her ability to keep her cool in a fast-paced, busy environment. Kelly loves all pets, especially her own dog Frankenstein.


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.
