At VCA Wilshire Animal Hospital, we've helped pets live long, healthy and happy lives since 1932. We deliver the best medical care for pets and the best experience for pet owners.

Located in Santa Monica and serving the greater West Side community, our veterinarians, technicians and pet-friendly support staff are trained to the highest standards. Their thorough knowledge of the latest procedures and medicines ensures that our patients receive the best in preventive and healing care.



VCA Wilshire Animal Hospital has been a Santa Monica landmark serving a wide community of animal lovers who have trusted the care of their pets to us since 1932. Generations of veterinarians and staff have welcomed all species of animals, from dogs and cats to all breeds of birds, lizards, tortoises, guinea pigs and other exotics.

We have a board-certified avian specialist and a board-certified feline specialist on staff and at your service.

We are open seven days a week for your convenience. Emergencies and walk-ins are welcome, but if you know your schedule, call ahead.

When you walk into our lobby, you will be pleased to find a friendly intimate environment where you and your pet will feel like family. In our hospital it is very common to see one of our nurses or doctors holding and rocking a pet wrapped in a warm blanket or sitting in one of our kennels, comforting a pet waking up from surgery. It's that kind of extra care that makes your pet's experience special and unique.

The staff and veterinarians at VCA Wilshire Animal Hospital pledge that your pets will always receive compassionate, gentle care as well as the highest quality medical services available. We also pledge to exceed your expectations with the best client service you can find anywhere.

Local Medical Issues
Fleas are a problem all year round in Southern California. When left untreated, fleas can cause serious skin conditions, hot spots and hair loss in your pet.

Watch out for foxtails in high grass. They can burrow into the skin, eyes and ears, causing infections and abscesses if left untreated.

Certain plants and food products are poisonous to dogs and cats. Lilies are deadly to cats. Grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs. Small mammals, turtles and reptiles require a specific diet and a controlled environment to thrive.
