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.

Thank you for making us one of the highest-rated veterinary hospitals in Lompoc, CA.

Absolutely fantastic!! We recently had a gas leak at our home and had to find emergency boarding for our little dog. Village Veterinarian & Boarding came to our rescue. Without exception, Every person working there always provides loving kindness to animals and their human “parents”! We would not trust our furry family to anyone else. Thank you Village Vet & group for your very personalized care!

Village Veterinary Clinic is such a wonderful environment. We have seen three different doctors and I honestly cannot pick a favorite. Everyone is so professional and thorough. We not only count on the tremendous support and information from the doctors but also use the pet grooming and boarding facilities. Our older dogs are very precious and we entrust Village Vet for our each and every need! Thanks guys!
