VCA Pacific Petcare Animal Hospital offers comprehensive animal care — with the personal touch


By Karen Billing

When you walk into VCA Pacific Petcare Animal Hospital in Carmel Country Plaza, it’s possible that one of the two hospital cats, Spiccoli or Jacks, will be there in the lobby ready to greet you. Friendly faces are a specialty at Pacific Petcare, as much of the staff has been there for eight to 17 years.

“It may sound cheesy but you don’t often find a hospital where every single person is that invested in the clients and animals and they genuinely care,” said Dr. Leah Smith, medical director. “I’m amazed because that hasn’t been my experience at other places. I can honestly say that their hearts are just in it.”

The hospital, decked out in beachy décor, offers a full menu of care for dogs and cats, including typical annual, doctor, sick and wellness exams, full surgery, spay and neuters, arthroscopic surgeries, ultrasounds, digital x-rays, emergency care, endoscopy, in-house lab work and diagnostics, grooming and boarding.
