A Wealth of Veterinary Experience at Your Service!

Everyone on our staff believes the better we get to know your pets, the better we can provide the best possible healthcare for them. In fact, when you come in, you'll see exactly why our veterinarians are praised for their kind and thorough care. We'll give you and your pet all the time you need, and never rush through an exam. We'll also carefully track the course of your pet's care, which is so important to your pet's long-term health.

In every case, you'll be served by experienced, knowledgeable members of our staff. Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other pet-friendly personnel are trained to the highest standards. Their knowledge of the latest veterinary medicines and procedures ensures that all our pet patients get the best in prevention and healing methods.

New to VCA?

We provide veterinary services for every stage in your pet's life, from her first shots to a lifetime of preventive care to keep her happy and healthy.

Our services don't end at our hospital doors.  As a member of the VCA family, our veterinarians have access to extensive medical resources, not the least of which is the VCA knowledge base, which allows our doctors to tap into the collected knowledge of over 2,000 VCA veterinarians.

And if your pet ever needs truly advanced veterinary care, VCA Specialty Hospitals are ready to help.  These twenty-eight clinics provide state-of-the-art care in orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, advanced oncology, and even such cutting-edge treatments as stem cell therapy.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Santa Monica Dog and Cat Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives.  To be true to the mission, the hospital team relies on several individuals, each equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.  And if things get complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board-certified specialists.

My Cats Love VCA and Dr. Weiss
Tanya from Santa Monica

We have been taking our cats to Dr. Weiss for close to 2 years. During this time we have only had great experiences.

Dr. Weiss has always been gentel and kind to our pets. One of the best things about Dr. Weiss is that he is the type of doctor that wants to make sure you understand why he is running the tests he orders, what the results will tell him, and when he reaches a diagnosis, all of the treatment options that are available. Through all of this he is always sensitive to cost and making sure he does not waste our time or money. Now if only I could find a doctor like this for myself!
