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 Peninsula is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this mission the hospital team relies on several individuals, and each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

And if things get very complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board-certified specialists. In a word: TEAMWORK!

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From the very first person you speak to, to the person who checks you and your pet out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.

Thank you on behalf of Bailey
Jo and Tom Lancaster from San Diego

To the entire staff at Peninsula Animal Hospital, Jo and I want to thank you for the kind and always professional care that you have given Bailey (and Mac before that). Pets are very special and you all treated them that way. You could heal when healing was possible and you were very tender when we had to say good by. While all of you were an essential part of our pet's care, Dr. Cammarata, Elaina, Shawna and Tami were the most understanding, up-lifting and understanding people we could have wanted to take care of Mac, Murphy and Bailey. Elaina said the magic words when we first brought Bailey, who was a rescue, in for a physical,- "Bailey, you just won the dog lottery".Thank you again for being so caring and good. Jo and Tom Lancaster
