VCA Old Trail Animal Hospital


  • Kennel Manager

    Sheila N

    Sheila started her career at ourhospital almost 4 years ago.  Since beginning as an assistant to our groomer, she has moved up to be a Technician, our Cat Champion, and the Kennel Manager.  Sheila has been caring for animals all her life as she grew up at a local animal rescue. She currently has a large family of four legged kids that she and her fiance' adore, including cats, ferrets, a horse and their three rescue dogs:  Loki, Wiley and Wowzer.


    "I have been around animals all my life, and even though I tried different career paths, nothing makes me happier or more fulfilled than spending my days with animals.  As much as I love helping and caring for sick and injured animals and making them healthy again, the highlight is always getting to know who they really are.  During their stay with us, whether it is for surgery, medical issues, or boarding, pets will slowly show you who they are, what they do and don't like.  It is like being let in on a secret, one you can oly learn if they are comfortable with you, if they trust you.  That is why I do what I do, to get to know each of them, individually, as if they were my own; and to make them as comfortable, happy, (and spoiled) as possible while we have them."

  • Groomer

    Kim S

    Kim has been VCA Old Trail Animal Hospital's Groomer for 7 years.  She has lived in the area since she was 5 years old.  She enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and furry kids of dogs, cats and guinea pigs.


    "I have always been an animal lover and on my 11th birthday, I got Misty, a poodle.  we took her to the groomer who let me watch her give Misty a haircut.  I said when I grow up, that's what I want to do.  So I did.  I have been a groomer for 25 years.  I enjoy making my furry friends and their owners happy with their tubbies and haircuts."


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.
