Walking around the lake? Now you can stop and pick up your pet food or medications any day of the week!

Weekends have always been our busiest times, so we have expanded our hours so we’re available when you’re available.

Whenever possible, we recommend scheduling your Sunday appointment in advance. As always, appointments are seen in the following order:

  1. Emergencies
  2. Scheduled appointments
  3. Fit-ins (scheduled for sick pets when we are fully booked)
  4. Walk-ins (unscheduled)

Please take comfort knowing that if your pet should have a true emergency, we will drop everything to give them our full attention. On rare occasions, this may result in regularly scheduled appointments running late.


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.
