The VCA Big Pet Project


At VCA Animal Hospitals we want to work with you to help your pets maintain a healthy weight, so they can live a long and happy life with you!

Being overweight can be very dangerous for our pets - even a few extra pounds can potentially shorten their lifespan. Pet Obesity has become a national epidemic for our cats and dogs, and we’ve decided to help do something about it with our pet weight loss initiative called the
Big Pet Project.

It’s a national program created to give pet owners the information and resources needed to help their overweight or obese cats and dogs lose weight and shape up for healthier lives!
Visit our hospital for an evaluation, and if it looks like your pet might need to lose a few pounds, we’ll discuss the steps you can take and provide the tools you need for successful pet weight loss. And we’ll be there every step of the way offering support and encouragement!

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.
