We are huge supporters of the Austin Humane Society. Our hospital team has a strong partnership with the Humane Society in which we have agreed to provide free exams for every pet adopted from the Humane Society and up to an additional $500 worth of care for certain common conditions within 14 days of adoption. This has made a huge difference both to the new owners as well as the shelter as the pets medical concerns get addressed in a timely manner, reducing the number of sick pets getting returned. The Rags to Wags Gala is their largest fundraising event of the year and provides help to thousands of pets each year. We are very happy to have donated to and participated in this wonderful event. Together as a community we can keep Austin a No Kill City!

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.
