    Athena Acosta

    Athena has been with VCA Wingate for seven years as Assistant Manager. Clients love Athena's compassionate nature and problem solving skills. Wingate could not do it without her.

    Outside of the office, Athena has been happily married to Bobby for 10 years and has a beautiful baby boy named Apollo, along with one dog named Lexa and two cats named Ren and Precious. She enjoys watching live professional boxing and frequently travels to Las Vegas to attend matches. She also loves attending pro football games (Go Broncos!).

    Athena recently had to put her beloved dog, Drako to sleep after he fell ill with osteosarcoma which is an aggressive bone cancer. It pleases all of us at Wingate to honor his name here on our website. He lives in Athena's and the staff's hearts each day.

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.
