  • One of the Best

    -Anne from Los Angeles, CA
    Pet Name: Jake

    Pet Image Our visit was great. I appreciate the cleanliness of the hospital, the knowledge of the staff, and the warmth and caring of the doctors. They treated our pet like he was one of their own. It was a great visit!

  • My Cats Love VCA and Dr. Weiss

    -Tanya from Santa Monica, CA
    Pet Name: James and Maya

    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!

  • First Visit

    -Becky from Santa Monica, CA
    Pet Name: Totti

    I had my first visit with Dr. Nelson Weiss today and he was excellent. My dog gets very nervous at the vet and is not always the nicest patient. However Dr. Weiss and his staff took the time to make my dog feel comfortable and safe. It was one of the best vet visits my dog has had and I will continue to come back as a customer in the future.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
