This week, we’re highlighting the cutting-edge cardiology team at VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital as they are one of the first to complete life-saving heart surgery for dogs.

When the cardiology team completed a new valve repair surgery in February 2023, VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital became one of only six U.S. locations—and the first private veterinary practice—to perform the life-saving surgery. A medical milestone in its own right, it was just the latest advancement for a team with a remarkable innovation track record.

Phoebe is a fun-loving dog who loves to play and run around! Unfortunately, hips and joint issues have caused mobility issues, forcing her to refrain from being active.

With the help of VCA Animal Specialty Group, Phoebe is getting a second chance (and a new pair of hips!) Even after four surgeries, Phoebe still manages to stay vibrant and golden.

Every pet deserves love, health, happiness and a forever home. So this week we’re celebrating the people who help make that a reality for National Animal Shelter Awareness Week!

We’ll be sharing stories from a handful of the over 150 animal shelters and rescues.

Our first Shelter Hero is the Humane Society of Broward County! On top of the amazing work they do to help pets find their forever homes, they know that the best way to learn about living with pets… is to live with pets!

They offer day and week-long youth camps where children and teens can learn about animal safety, responsible pet parenting, animal enrichment, and interact with rescues. They still have day camp dates coming up, so why not check one out?
