The West Los Angeles Animal Hospital is one of the largest private small animal hospitals in the country. We have 3 equally important missions. We are a general practice for the West Los Angeles area, a referral hospital for veterinarians in Southern California and we are a teaching hospital providing post-graduate education for veterinarians.
We have a group of excellent general practitioners who are capable of providing the highest quality of health care for your pet. They bring a great deal of experience and breadth to our hospital and are responsible for overseeing the large general practice and walk-in caseload that we serve. Many clients enjoy the freedom of being able to walk-in without an appointment at times that are convenient for them and of course at any time there is an emergency. We are open 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365 days of the year to provide comprehensive care. However there are instances when waiting times to see a doctor may be long depending on the time of day and the number of emergencies that are being handled. To avoid unnecessary delays, especially if you don't have a medical emergency, you may wish to call ahead to determine if there is a wait to see a doctor or to schedule an appointment with one of our staff doctors at a time convenient to you.
