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

A Wealth of Veterinary Experience at Your Service!

At VCA Animal Hospital, we look forward to welcoming you, your dog, cat and other pets.  Everyone on our staff believes that the better we get to know your pets, the better we can provide the best possible health care for them.  In fact, when you come in, you'll see exactly why our veterinarians are praised for their kind and thorough care.  We'll give you and your pet all the time you need, and never rush through an exam. We'll also carefully track the course of your pet's care, which is so important to your pet's long-term health.

In every case, you'll be served by experienced, knowledgeable members of our staff.  Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other pet-friendly personnel are trained to the highest standards.  Their knowledge of the latest veterinary medicines and procedures ensures that all our pet patients get the best in prevention and healing methods.

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 Orchard Plaza Animal Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To achieve this goal, we have three full-time veterinarians with a combined experience of over 30 years to care for your pet. With difficult cases, our doctors frequently consult with each other and local specialists to provide thorough diagnostic testing and treatment options.

Additionally, our friendly support staff is here to help address any questions or concerns you may have. We have one registered technician and several staff members currently undertaking this additional training.

Together we strive to provide excellent client service and health care. Please let us know how we can assist you!

The BEST Vet in the World
Chau McAusland from San Jose

I am very fortunate to have Dr. J. Star Seward as our vet. To sum up my experiences with Dr. Seward, the only thing I can say is she is the only vet that you can find whom you will trust with your pet as much as you would if you yourself had a veterinarian degree and were treating them. My husband and I would not dream of taking our pets to anyone else due to her kindness, professionalism, and competence. These are qualities that are immediately obvious on your first visit.
