VCA Aurora Animal Hospital

VCA Aurora Animal Hospital was established as an animal hospital in 1912 and has been part of the community ever since. Our hospital is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year and provides a wide range of specialty, critical care and emergency services as well as primary care. Our veterinary services and medical equipment mirror what you would find at a human medical center. We offer a team approach to veterinary medicine, where emergency veterinarians and board-certified specialists work together to provide the most advanced care possible for every patient utilizing the newest diagnostic equipment and therapeutic techniques.

We are honored and proud to be a VCA Pet CancerCare Center. Our multidisciplinary oncology team designs an individualized treatment plan for each patient using the most advanced and effective treatments available—much like those used in human medicine. Even better, today's cancer treatments are often much quicker with far fewer side effects, so pets remain comfortable and happy throughout treatment.

We're a team of highly trained individuals dedicated to the health and well-being of your pets.

Patients and Visitors

Visiting/Telephone Policy
Visiting hours for patients in our intensive care unit (ICU) are from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., 7 days a week. Visits may be delayed or shortened from 3:45-6:30 p.m. due to the transfer of patient care to our evening shift. We greatly appreciate if you call after 10:00 a.m. to check on the status of your pet, as this will give our staff the time needed to re-evaluate your pet and to transfer cases to our day shift. Phone calls are welcome until 10:00 p.m. Please be assured that you will be notified of a change in your pet's condition after that time.

Visits are found to be most productive for the patient when they last 10-20 minutes, and a 30 minute visit is the maximum allowed. Please do not take offense if one of our doctors asks you to limit your stay.

Please keep in mind that while you visit, you cannot touch the other patients under our care, and we are unable to tell you about the other patients.

We can have no more than two visitors in ICU at one time, and children under the age of ten are not allowed without special permission.

Thank you for you adherence to these policies. They allow our staff to take the best care of all pets in our hospital and to focus our attention on them!
