Local Medical Issues

Heartworm disease is a malady that both dogs and cats need a preventative for year-round. This disease is transmitted to our pets by mosquitoes. Typically, our winters don't get cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, so a once-per-month preventative is needed to ensure protection. A simple blood test is required once per year, and VCA West Mesa can provide your pet the diagnostic and the preventative! The Center for Disease Control is advising that the frequency of diagnosing endoparasites is increasing in the western states. Many of these internal parasites can be transmitted from pets to people! An examination and preventative can be provided by our hospital to keep all members of your family safe from this very real danger!

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.
