All About Pets

2010 Staff Picture



  • Dr.
    Lynda Zucca

    Dr. Zucca graduated from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1992.  Her dogs Dinny, Skylar, and Castiel come to work with her daily. She has a variety of other animals at home, which we have nicknamed the Zucca Zoo. Her whole life she wanted to be a Veterinarian, but instead married and had children. Three kids later she went to College and accomplished her dream with the support of her wonderful Husband. Her life is her family and the animals. She loves treating and working with Dogs, Cats, Reptiles, and Pocket Pets. She also treats the local Wild Life, anything ranging from Owls to Bats! She feels that acupuncture and Chinese herbs are another great tool she has added to her belt. The best medicine is all of it, Western and alternative.

    Two of her favorite sayings:

    'We can't change the entire world but we can change pieces of it.'

    'In Veterinary medicine we don't always take the Cadillac, sometimes we take the Volkswagon.'

Testimonial

  • "The best place I could ever take my animals. Everyone there from reception to techs to vets are kind, knowledgeable and professional. Dr. Zucca seems to have a sixth sense when it comes to treating our pets. All the veterinarians there are exceptional. This place understands people live on a budget and don't always believe the best treatment is the most expensive treatment. Love, love, love this place!"
    Lena F. / Citrus Heights, CA
