My son Jack has an awesome doctor
Allyson M. from Citrus Heights

While our daughter Grace has required more extensive care due to hip dysplasia, our other baby Jack has also been to VCA for care. He's in good health and recently went for his annual checkup and vaccinations. Dr. Grinstead is just fantastic and she is so good with him. I am a very pleased dog mommy. Before Jack was a regular patient I brought him to VCA for emergency care when he had a mysterious bout of vomiting and dehydration. The vet on staff that night was just wonderful and very thorough and caring. He got my son hydrated, medicated and back to being himself. My husband and I are grateful to have VCA in our corner. Thank you, VCA for all the good work you do.
