Five local board-certified veterinary specialists have opened Horizon Veterinary Specialists, a newly established, 24 hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week small animal specialty and emergency veterinary hospital serving Ventura, Santa Barbara, and surrounding counties. The new veterinary hospital is located at 5280 Valentine Road in Ventura on the corner of Valentine Road and Sperry Avenue with easy on and off 101 freeway access at Victoria Avenue.
Dr. Nancy Scott and Dr. Sarah Gray, both board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, have transitioned their Emergency Veterinary Care practice to Horizon Veterinary Specialists and are joined by Dr. Amy Rhoades, Dr. Melissa Herrera and Dr. Theresa Ortega, all board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. The five well respected board-certified veterinarians have been seeing patients in the Ventura community for many years and bring over 50 years of combined internal medicine, emergency and critical care experience.
“We have built a strong team of caring and experienced veterinary professionals and are dedicated to serving our community with progressive, collaborative, ethical, and compassionate care,” said Dr. Theresa Ortega. “We are passionate about the pets and their families in our community and look forward to working with our local primary veterinarians to provide an extension of specialty and emergency care for their patients,” added Dr. Nancy Scott.
Working alongside the owners is highly experienced emergency veterinarian, Dr. Mary Ellen McLoughlin who has practiced emergency medicine exclusively for the past 12 years. She and the founders are joined by a team of dedicated veterinary technicians, assistants, client service representatives, caretakers, and practice managers who are all committed to excellence.
