Who We Are

A few words about us...

Welcome to Veterinary Healing Center of El Dorado Hills – Your Trusted El Dorado Hills & Cameron Park, CA Vet!

Sharing your life with an animal is about more than just having a watchdog or a loyal feline companion. It’s about wet, slobbery kisses and warm, cozy cuddles. It’s being greeted by a furiously wagging tail after a long, hard day or relaxing to the sound of deep, throaty purrs.

These precious little moments are what make having a pet such an incredible journey.

Companion animals have an amazing way of working their way into our hearts and changing our lives for the better. They teach us about compassion, understanding, and unconditional love. They show us how to be better humans.

At Veterinary Healing Center of El Dorado Hills, we understand how much your pet means to you, and we are honored to partner with you in helping that special little guy or gal enjoy a long, healthy life by your side.

We are a full service small animal clinic serving the dogs, cats, and pocket pets of El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park. Our comprehensive services combine the very best of traditional medical, diagnostic, dental, and surgical care with a number of Eastern medicine options for a more well-rounded approach to animal health care.

We believe in treating each animal as an individual, focusing on their whole health, not just on the symptoms. The result is a happier, more balanced pet.

What truly sets us apart from other practices in the El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park area, however, is the way we treat our patients and clients.

From the moment you walk through our doors, you’ll notice a difference. Warm greetings by name; extra time taken in the exam room to answer your questions, discuss your concerns, and explain your options; and, of course, plenty of TLC for your furry friend – these are just some of the ways we try to go the extra mile.

This El Dorado Hills / Cameron Hills veterinarian believes that pets, just like people, deserve a good bedside manner. That’s why we always handle each patient with the same gentle, reassuring touch as we would our very own animal family members.

At Veterinary Healing Center of El Dorado Hills, our ultimate goal is not to just be your family vet, but also the trusted resource to whom you can turn for all of your pet care needs. Someone who will partner with you. Stop by and see what our El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park vet care is all about!

We want to be a teammate, an ally, a friend; a partner that will be there, by your side, through all the ups and downs, joys and sorrows, and special moments as they occur over the years. With us, you’ll get someone who will always have the best interests of your pet in mind!

Whether you’re new to the El Dorado Hills & Cameron Park area, recently opened your home and your heart to a new furry family member, or you’re just in the market for an experienced vet that will treat you and your loved one with the compassion and respect you both deserve, we invite you to come give us a try.

We’ve got all the services you’ll ever need to keep your pet happy, healthy, and whole. Come by today and see what we’re all about! We look forward to meeting you!

      The Veterinary Healing Center in El Dorado Hills is fantastic. My cat Marshmallow and I have been with them for a year. I brought Marshmallow there for a second opinion about his breathing problems because of asthma and upper respiratory issues. He was getting injections about every 6 weeks, and those many trips to the vet were very stressful on him. Dr. McKerney, took Marshmallow off the injections - steroids and convenia – and put him on a tablet of doxycycline. She felt that his main issue is upper respiratory. Marsh has not had any breathing problems for a year, and he is happy to take his pill in a pill pocket! I have such a positive experience when Marshmallow and I visit. Marsh is not the best behaved patient, and Dr. McKerney is wonderful and is always so patient and gentle with him, and the staff is patient and gentle with him, too – I am grateful, and thankful!!

      This place is full of the kindest, most compassionate people. Dr Mckerney is Zoey’s favorite and she has gone above and beyond to always give Zoey the best care. Even while Zoey is hospitalized, Dr Mckerney and the staff have checked on her regularly. It means the world to us 💜💜💜

      I'm always comfortable taking my pets to see Dr. Cahoon, whether it's my rats or my dog he has always shown compassion. He never overcomplicates a situation or problem which always makes the visit a little bit easier. He has been seeing my 10 year old epileptic dog since he was a puppy and recently performed a very successful surgery on my rat(yes rat💗🐀 )
