AAHA accredited for over 50 years, VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital started as a small family run hospital in 1947 but has grown quite a bit to accommodate the growing pet community. This ever growing animal hospital strives to offer clients the best state of the art technology and specialty veterinary care that the county has available. Our staff members are dedicated to the care of animals and they are willing to do whatever is necessary to make a client comfortable.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
VCA’s goal is to help treat your pet’s cancer, giving you and your pet more quality time together.
At VCA Pet CancerCare Centers, our oncology teams design individualized treatment plans for each pet patient using the most advanced and effective treatments available—much like those used in human medicine. Today’s cancer treatments have fewer side effects, so most pets remain comfortable and happy throughout treatment.

As veterinary professionals, we know that the stress and anxiety associated with taking a pet to the veterinarian is a significant reason why pets don't always receive the medical attention they need. Fear Free℠ veterinary visits reduce feelings of stress, resulting in a better experience for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams. Having a Fear Free℠ Certified Professional can help alleviate your pet's fear, anxiety, and stress when visiting our hospital.
We harness the scale and strength of our global network while acknowledging each individual's contribution. We work locally to improve the lives of all who interact with our brand.

Alma maters are important, especially to Vets. Auburn University holds a special place in the hearts of the VCA Hollywood Staff in that from those hall, we were born. Recently, Auburn University did a piece on the Brother's Dee and the legacy that the Dee family has imparted on our community.
We are grateful for their contribution.

Retired K9 Officer Healthcare Fund
K9 Police Officers serve our city, our county and our state at our borders, on our streets and at our front doors. These canines are trained to act in situations that require stamina, physical agility and quick reaction time. They are fully accredited officers bearing the honor of their office during service and in death.
In retirement, canine officers are no longer financially supported by the department they served. Their handlers, or partners, often voluntarily 'adopt' these animals to live out their retirement in comfort. It is the belief of the Retired K9 Officer Healthcare Fund (RK9OHF) that the cost of healthcare should be supplemented. In accordance with that belief, a partnership was established with the RK9OHF and VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital with the mission to provide the best in wellness care to these officers and to cover a portion of those costs.
