About VSH

The Veterinary Specialty Hospital of San Diego (VSH) is proud to provide the highest quality specialty care to pets, and the highest customer service to owners in the San Diego community. VSH is truly a unique facility, with some of the most advanced equipment for pets found anywhere in the country. Simply put, we are committed to be leaders in providing the best quality specialty medicine possible for pets.

We work closely with family veterinarians to provide comprehensive care for our patients. Our staff of doctors, technicians and client service representatives has exceptional training, motivation, and compassion for the pets we treat. We have the latest equipment, including MRI, CAT scan, radiation therapy, digital radiography, a state-of-the-art intensive care unit, ultra-modern surgical suites, endoscopy, ultrasound, and much more.

We also have an association with the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine to bring unique programs and treatments to the San Diego area, including hemodialysis (artificial kidney machine), cardiology, pharmacy, and clinical nutrition. We are also proud to offer a working environment for our dedicated staff that allows them to contribute to our core values, progress in their careers, feel valued, and work in an enjoyable and productive atmosphere.

We provide a level of sophistication that can only be found in the most advanced human medical facilities. We also strive for exceptional client service and compassionate care for dogs and cats. Since most of us have pets of our own, we understand the strong bond that our clients have with their pets, and realize that they are part of the family.
