We’re committed to keeping clients and staff safe during COVID-19 with NEW admittance and check-out processes. Learn more.

Effective immediately, client visits will be seen on a walk-in basis, with limited appointments available to be scheduled. Specialty referrals and consults are not affected.  

We will continue to manage our curbside service, only allowing clients into the building under special circumstances.

For non-urgent medication refills, food sales, retail items or if you need your pet's records, please visit our online store at store.vcametroplex.com or please download our new myVCA app from the Apple app store or Google Play.
