Who We Are

A few words about us...

Our pets are so much more than just animals that reside in our homes. They are special creatures that somehow find a way to tiptoe into our hearts, touch our souls, and change our lives for the better…and all without ever uttering a single word.

Our pets are a part of the family, and when it comes to family, we only want the very best.

At Veterinary Healing Center of Folsom, serving the Folsom and Orangevale communities, we understand the incredible connection you share with your animal family member. That’s because in addition to our roles as vets, technicians, and assistants, each one of us has our own furry friend that we cherish.

It’s the bond we share with our own pets, and the one you share with yours, that inspires us to always go above and beyond in everything we do.

We offer a complete line of comprehensive medical, diagnostic, surgical, and dental care services along with a wide array of Eastern medicine options to complement our care.

Our staff is friendly, approachable, and treats all of our clients and patients with respect and compassion. You can always expect to be greeted warmly and given our undivided attention whenever you’re visiting with us. Pets are handled with a gentle, reassuring touch and always treated with the same level of care as if they were our very own.

Your Folsom veterinarian believes pets deserve a good bedside manner just as much as people do!

Our goal with every check-up, treatment, or procedure is to become more than just your pet’s doctor, but a trusted friend. We want to be a valuable resource; a loyal partner that will be by your side throughout this amazing journey of being a pet parent.

From that first new wellness visit right on into the precious senior years – and every moment and milestone along the way – you can count on the team at Veterinary Healing Center of Folsom. We’ll be here to listen, answer your questions, discuss all of your options, and help you make the best decisions for your family.

Are you new to the Folsom or Orangevale, CA area? Have you recently adopted a new dog, cat, pocket pet, or bird? Perhaps you’re just looking for an experienced vet that you can trust with the care of your most cherished companion.

Whatever the reason, we invite you to come give us a try. We have everything necessary to help your loved one enjoy a long, happy, and healthy life! Stop in any time – we can’t wait to meet you!

    • Laura Lee RogersLaura Lee Rogers

      Dr. McKerney has been treating my cockapoo, Waldo, with accutpunture for a couple of months now due to a spinal injry that resulted in paralization in the hind area. Waldo can now walk, a little wobbly. When recommended to me we did not know if Waldo would ever be able to walk again. Dr, McKerney is worth our drive (50miles) and time. She was also very thorough in reviewing all of Waldo's medical records prior to seeing him. Waldo is never expereinces any anxiety about going - that says a lot!

      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!!

      The Veterinary Healing Center of Folsom and El Dorado Hills has been fantastic. They have been there through some of the most difficult decisions (letting our Oreo go) to just making sure our girls are healthy (annual checkups). They are loving to our Boston and Chihuahua even when the dogs are not willing to be touched. This is a very Caring place. If you want to go somewhere that is fabulous with your fur babies this is the place. ��

      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 💜💜💜

      We started seeing Dr Cahoon and Dr McKerney because we needed alternative health care for our 12yr old mutt. We specifically chose Veterinary Healing Center for their knowledge and experience with Eastern Medicine applications. Our family is overjoyed for our pet and the pain relief he is now experiencing since starting his treatment plan just a few months ago. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The prices are comparable to other veterinary offices. I highly recommend their services for your pets needs.
