  • First time

    -Brandon from Goleta, CA
    Pet Name: Buddy

    Pet Image Took our little man, Buddy, here today and really enjoyed the experience. Everyone was polite, kind and very helpful. Staff was very knowledgable and explained all the ins and outs of what I needed to know with a new puppy. I was very satisfied, and would definitely recommend you guys to anyone. Thanks a lot, and we'll be seeing you soon!

  • In Memory of my sweet kitty

    -Fred Calleri from Goleta, CA
    Pet Name: Tailes

    Pet Image A teary Thank You to the staff at Noah's Ark for their very sweet and compassionate care with me and my cat "Tales" during her final moments. She is no longer in pain, and very likely searching for some blankets to sleep under in heaven. The hugs given to me by the staff made it clear they understood and cared as well. I will soon rescue another kitty and I look forward to all of its love in Tales' honor.

  • In Memory of Nicky Luke

    -Mark and Dawn Luke from Goleta, CA
    Pet Name: Nicky Luke

    Pet Image Nicky was our wonderful, sweet companion for seven years. She gave us days filled with laughter and love. Thank you to the doctors and staff of Noah's Ark for your care and compassion. Nicky is now free from illness and pain. Every day will be filled with sunshine, lots of milk and chicken, and playing with new friends. Our consolation is knowing that we will see her again in heaven someday.

  • Out of Towners

    -Ron Entzminger from Vista, CA
    Pet Name: Pnut

    Our minpin got a foxtail this morning while vacationing at Refugio State Park. We are so blessed to have found Noah's Ark. They had an opening for us right away and were absolutely wonderful. They probably could have taken advantage of us and charged us anything to get that little monster out of his ear, but that sweet Dr. Shaff and her assistant got it out without sedating little Pnut, and the charges were minimal, to say the least. Thank you, so much. We now have a vet away from home, as we vacation here once a year.

  • In Memory of Bailey

    -Chris and Carol Bailey from Goleta, CA
    Pet Name: Bailey

    Pet Image We simply want to say thank you to all the staff at Noah for their extreme professionalism and sensitivity during our labrador's final moments with us. We highly recommend this hospital for those who want personal service when it comes to the needs of the pets as well as their owners. Thank you!

  • We're all Better

    -Patrick and Riley from Goleta, CA
    Pet Name: Patrick and Riley

    Pet Image My two puppies were diagnosed with Parvo last winter. All of the staff at Noah's Ark were so wonderful and caring about my sick pups. I'm happy to announce that with the care they received and the home care that was taught to me (which saved me a lot of money) they both survived and are growing up to be big and strong. They will be 8 months in a few days. Thank you! Keep up the awesome work!!! XOXO

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.
