About Us

Village Veterinary Clinic in Vandenberg Village was originally founded by Dr. Rick Zander in the early 1980’s.

Doctors Connie Ganter and Verne Thacker purchased Village Veterinary 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 clinic 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 veterinary care with Dr. Connie Ganter and Dr. Julie Deter; bathing, grooming and boarding.

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

Our clinic is open Monday-Friday 8am – 6pm and Saturdays 9:00am-12:00pm. Our phone number is 805.733.3548, or click here to email us.
