At VCA Pacific Avenue Animal Hospital, the Hospital Manager, Ben Kelley says that having a loving heart toward clients’ four-footed family members is a job requirement at VCA. “We look for a compassionate staff that cares about the animals. It isn’t about the money for the staff who work here; it’s about what they do to make (the animals) feel good and the contribution they can make to the animals’ lives and to their owners.”
VCA Pacific Avenue Animal Hospital is part of the national Veterinary Centers of America (VCA) network that operates more than 470 animal hospitals in 39 states across the country. These hospitals are staffed by over 1,800 fully qualified, dedicated and compassionate veterinarians to give your pet the very best in medical care. More than 200 are board-certified specialists.
Here in Tacoma, VCA Pacific Avenue Animal Hospital’s eight doctors and 35 staff members, each of whom have endeared pets of their own, are the type of warm, caring people you can trust giving medical attention to your beloved pets. Each member of the hospital’s extensive team of professionals keeps up to date on all the latest advancements in veterinary care through continuing education classes and by consulting with their VCA peers across the country.
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, VCA provides a full range of general medical and surgical services as well as specialized treatments for dogs, cats and smaller “pocket pets.”
VCA is active in its community, too. Last year the hospital donated $250,000 in services, products and sponsorships such as the Humane Society’s annual Dog-athon, which VCA staff attends every year to provide services like microchipping and registration for adopted dogs. Through city and county partnerships, Good Samaritans can bring strays into VCA and the hospital will take it from there.
