About Us

Horizon Veterinary Specialists is a privately owned and rapidly growing, fast-paced emergency and specialty hospital located in beautiful Ventura, California. Horizon was founded in August of 2018 by five board certified veterinarians who want to inspire positive change in the veterinary community for their patients and for all the incredible professionals who dedicate themselves to veterinary medicine.

With a state-of-the-art facility and a focus on positive, inclusive, and educational culture, the Horizon Partners have built a team of kind-hearted, dedicated, and motivated professionals to serve each other, our patients, and the community members of beautiful Ventura, Santa Barbara and surrounding counties.

Horizon’s emergency and critical care team provides services 24/7 to small animal patients of Ventura and the surrounding counties. Our emergency department supports walk-in emergencies as well as referrals from the primary veterinarian community. We have a large, fully equipped, multi-unit ICU with a separate rooms for isolation, oh and a room just for cats!

Our hospital does more than just emergency medicine! We also have an internal medicine

department with three affable and brilliant, board-certified veterinary Internists.

With their collective experience of 52 years, our internal medicine veterinarians are a great, supportive resource for our emergency department, the veterinary community and of course the pets in Ventura and surrounding counties.

Our veterinary support team consists of a variety of administrative professionals, customer service representatives, doctor’s assistants, pharmacy technicians, registered veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants from all different backgrounds and skill levels. Our hospital is focused on the training and development of veterinary professionals and those aspiring to become veterinary professionals.
