Lathrop Veterinary Center is the first vet hospital in the city of Lathrop, CA. Our state-of-the-art facility was built in 2008, houses modern equipment, and has amazing staff and Doctors. Also there’s a large new apartment building being built right next door that’s pet-friendly, so our busy practice will just get busier as the years go on. If you’re considering relocating or doing relief in CA, please note that the CA state board exam has been eliminated!
