Description

VCA Los Angeles Veterinary Specialists was founded with the principles of veterinary specialty practice in mind: expert medical care, state of the art medical equipment to deliver care, and medicine practiced with compassion and professionalism, often on patients with serious illnesses.

The staff at VCA Los Angeles Veterinary Specialists has had years of experience diagnosing and treating disorders that seriously affect dogs and cats. Our clients often arrive anxious and uncertain, particularly with pets that are very ill or remain undiagnosed. Our goal is to continue to provide first-rate services to our patients and clients in a friendly, reassuring and expert manner.

An integral part of successful Internal Medicine practice involves careful history taking and integration of this information with the tests that were performed by your family veterinarian.

The VCA Los Angeles Veterinary Specialists staff prides itself on processing this information, performing a complete and thorough physical examination, and then setting forth the most direct and appropriate diagnostic and treatment plan for your pet's needs.
