    Cathy has been with VCA Orchard Plaza since 1993. She is a graduate of Foothill College's Animal Health program and is a Registered Veterinary Technician. Cathy says her favorite thing about working at a veterinary hospital is that every day is different, with new experiences and challenges, and lives by the motto "Don't sweat the small stuff." She enjoys managing our large staff and making sure patients receive the care they need.

    Her family includes her husband and grown children. Her cat and her "grandpuppies" Bella, Roxy, and Pickles help round out the family. During her spare time, Cathy enjoys gardening, spending time with her new grand daughter and making crafts.


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.
