  • Thank you Dr Vick and VCA

    -Kimberley from Santa Cruz, CA
    Pet Name: Elizabeth, Rex and now Jesse

    I've had two cats treated over a number of years at VCA, and Dr. Vick and staff have been a super caring, kind part of our pet experience. Dr. Vick and team guided and were really supportive as we said goodbye to her in her final illness, after our cast passed away at age 19. Dr. Vick and team were just amazing throughout our cats lives and right to their end days. I can't thank them enough for the many years of assistance, and have just scheduled an appointment to bring our new adopted puppy in for it's first exam with Dr. Vick.


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.
