Hometown Care at VCA Coral Animal Hospital

VCA Coral Animal Hospital serves birds, cats, dogs, pocket pets and reptiles in Cape Coral, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Fort Myers, and Estero, Florida. Our veterinary practice provides exceptional pet health care and services to our patients and clients. Our staff always strives to provide the kindest, most respectful and best care for all our patients. We also treat our clients and each other with the same care. We adhere to the golden rule in all our interactions; with patients, clients, and fellow workers.

Our Philosophy:

  • Our clients are important to us, and we must do everything possible to make sure they are treated with courtesy.
  • To make our clients feel welcome, we must greet them by name, and let them know we're here to help.
  • We must provide accurate and helpful advice to clients who need information on pet health care.
  • Our veterinary hospital must be kept clean and uncluttered at all times. Clients measure us on the cleanliness of every part of our veterinary clinic.
  • We must attempt to solve all clients' problems so that we retain their goodwill and repeat business.
  • We must not argue or even debate with our clients. We will never win. We will only lose their support.
  • We must not speak poorly of our competition but instead speak positively about OUR qualities.
  • There is always something to do in the veterinary clinic, so keep busy. Above all, however, be alert to the needs of our clients.
  • Strive to learn as much about general pet health care so you can better help clients with their needs.
  • Maintain a professional appearance in order to make a positive impression on our clients.
  • Be courteous and helpful to other staff members and always recognize we operate as a team.
