Lompoc Vet & Animal Hospital Serving
Lompoc, CA for 30+ Years

Village Veterinary Clinic in Vandenberg Village was originally founded by Dr. Rick Zander in the early 1980s.
Doctors Connie Ganter and Verne Thacker purchased Village Vet Clinic in October 1999. The original building (across the street) could not contain the growing practice.

The current lot at 3883 Constellation RD was purchased and over a 5-year period, a new building was designed and built. In July 2007 the doctors and wonderful staff moved the animal hospital across the street and the clinic as you see today was established.

Dr. Thacker continues to offer ambulatory large animal services to the surrounding communities. Our in-house small animal service has grown to include full-service vet care with Dr. Connie Ganter and Dr. Julie Deter, as well as bathing.

We continue to have a growing dedicated and trained support staff to help take care of your family’s pets.

“…It’s worth the 20 minute drive to get the best care for our pets”

Our dog was diagnosed with a sarcoma on his spleen. We called several specialists and veterinary clinics from Paso Robles to Ventura and after getting the run around, we finally found Village Vet. Dr. Deter and her team are amazing! They not only saved our dog but identified a heart condition he had from the food he was eating. He is like a whole new dog thanks to Village Vet. We switched our other dog to Village Vet and couldn’t be happier. It’s worth the 20 minute drive to get the best care for our pets.
