    Ashley Evensen

    Ashley has been a groomer for the past eight years. She enjoys grooming all breeds of dogs and cats and finds grooming can be an outlet for creativity. Ashley is recognized for her outstanding grooms on the Standard Poodle, and has grown very fond of the breed. Previous to working at VCA Animal Hospital of Santa Cruz she taught grooming as an academy instructor. When she is not pampering pets, she loves spending quality time with her family and friends, and finds fulfillment working in her garden.


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.
