Team Picture of VCA Kickingbird Animal Hospital

Our Team

The friendly, professional staff here at VCA Kickingbird Animal Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to the mission, each team member helps us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet. We are always learning and striving to improve our ability to provide quality services for your pets. If things get complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board-certified specialists.

Over the years, we have seen our staff grow from one to over 40, we have seen our facility transform from a remodeled strip mall to a state-of-the-art hospital, but the most remarkable change has been a state of mind - how we see our pets today. For most of us, our pets provide us with unconditional love and acceptance - depending upon us. Pets bring us comfort and enrich our lives in ways that cannot be measured. They can sense our low points and giving us what we need the most - their loving presence. Our patients and clients are the reason we are here. We are planning for the future and we will strive to continue improving and learning for the benefit of your pets and your family.
