About Our Hospital
Welcome to our Ventura Animal Hospital
At Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group (VMSG) in Ventura, our experienced, compassionate veterinarians and board-certified specialists are an extension of your primary care veterinarian. We work together to provide the quality specialty and emergency veterinary care for pets in California.
Specialized Veterinary Care
We are staffed with highly-qualified specialists in many areas of veterinary medicine. Each of our specialists has completed at least three years of additional training beyond veterinary school and has passed rigorous examinations to become board-certified in their areas of specialization.
Any time you cannot reach your primary care veterinarian, we are here to help with emergency services. Our Ventura veterinarians are specially trained in emergency medicine, and our veterinary criticalist treat pets with life-threatening conditions.
Our Pet Care Philosophy
It is our mission to provide state-of-the-art medical care with compassion and exceptional service to cats and dogs. We proudly serve pet owners and veterinarians in Ventura by providing advanced-level services and procedures not typically available in general practice.
Dr. Kenneth Bruecker (founder and president) began providing surgical specialty care in Ventura County in 1988. The addition of other specialties has allowed Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group (VMSG) to grow to a staff of 85 doctors and paraprofessionals.
Founded with a vision of providing the highest possible standard of care in veterinary medicine and surgery, the VMSG philosophy has resulted in an unparalleled level of quality and medical treatment. Our doctors and technicians provide expert medical care to ensure your pet receives the treatment and care they deserve.
In April of 2005, VMSG opened the doors to its new 16,000 square foot specialty center in Ventura, California.
