VCA Village Animal Hospital

Robert Bauman, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, University of Prince Edward Island


Dr. Robert Bauman has been with the practice since 2005. He is the proud papa of two Golden Retrievers, Soleil and Siren, as well as a senior feline named, Blackbeard. They keep him quite busy. His off time interests include mountain biking, scuba diving, camping, and aquaculture. He sets the standard for the highest caliber medical care practiced. He assures that our hospitalized patients receive the best of care which means you will often find him here checking on his patients on his off time.

As a young child he developed a strong interest in the lives of many types of animals. That interest grew into a career. As a veterinarian, he is able to put forth his knowledge to both  employees and  owners of pets, helping  them understand what each pet may need so that they live long happy lives.

Each day he comes to work knowing there will be a new challenge, a new opportunity to help add quality of life to a pet that is part of a family. One of his favorite quotes is " Good Veterinarians talk to animals. Great Veterinarians hear them talk back"


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.
