Why VCA?

VCA is committed to continuously improving the standard of care for our hospitals and for veterinary medicine as a whole. We do it through our flagship Advanced Veterinary Care Centers, our National Medical Board and Chief Medical Officer, and through the compassionate, high-quality primary care we provide at our nationwide family of over 750 hospitals.

Why VCA?

VCA has 65 Specialty Hospitals with over 525+ Board Certified Specialists who provide services in oncology, dentistry, surgery, orthopedics, diagnostic imaging, stem cell therapy and more. VCA Specialty Hospitals attract some of the nation's most talented veterinarians and serve as a primary training ground for the industry's next generation of veterinary specialists. Our board certified specialists also provide training and resources that are open to every veterinarian in their communities, whether they work for VCA or not.

Together, the entire VCA Family -- from the front desks of our hospitals to our highly-trained specialists -- works with one goal in mind: to improve veterinary medicine for every pet. Especially yours.
