VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital congratulates Doctors Shadie Ghaffari, John Chretin, Nathan Peterson, Nicole Buote and David Bruyette on their recent publications. We have a great hospital with a wonderful staff and an excellent case load. It takes a lot of time and effort to translate that into clinical studies and papers that help advance the field of veterinary medicine and highlight the work we do here at our hospital. Great work, colleagues!

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.
