VetCor Welcomes Its First California Practice

We are excited to share that Camden Pet Hospital in San Jose, California has been added to our growing family of practices. The hospital becomes our 331st partner practice and our very first location in the Golden State.

Camden Pet Hospital in San Jose, CaliforniaOriginally founded in 1969, Camden Pet Hospital was purchased by Dr. Walter Hoge in 1976. This full-service animal hospital, located in the Almaden Valley foothills, has been serving pets in the San Jose area for over 40 years.

Dr. Hoge first knew that he wanted to work with animals when he joined the Future Farmers of America while in high school. He went on to earn his DVM degree from Purdue University and became the owner of Camden Pet Hospital shortly after. He is particularly interested in surgery.

He works alongside his son, Dr. Jeremy Hoge, and Dr. Nora Szeto. The younger Dr. Hoge is a San Jose native who earned his DVM degree from Western University. Like his father, he enjoys surgery as well as taking on complex medical cases. A graduate of the University of Illinois, Dr. Szeto is the newest addition to the Camden team. She has special interests in dermatology and client education.

The doctors are supported by their longtime hospital manager, Nancy Itri, their head technician, Christina Filipek, and a small but mighty team of veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and receptionists who love what they do.

Camden Pet Hospital provides their clients with a variety of services, including wellness exams and vaccines, boarding, grooming, dentistry, surgery, and more. Their goal is to educate clients, so they can manage their pet’s care in the most effective way possible.

We are thrilled to expand into the great state of California. It is our pleasure to welcome Camden Pet Hospital to the VetCor family!
