If your pet requires the services of a veterinary medical specialist, we can help as we offer a variety of specialty services. Our advanced care resources are second to none. Our hospital is ready to help when your pet needs us.
The VCA LAVS hospital is located in the same building as TLC Pet Medical Centers, a 24 hour general practice. This location allows for 24 hour care of hospitalized patients, without the need to physically transfer your pet elsewhere after regular office hours. During the day hospitalized patients are monitored and cared for by the LAVS staff. During evening hours the TLC doctors and nurses directly supervise your pet's treatment and care.
Within the hospital there are two separate ICU units, thermally-controlled, oxygen-enriched incubation chambers, and all of the modern amenities that allow us to deliver optimum patient care and maximize patient comfort. A tour of the hospital facility is available to you in the event your pet needs to spend an extended period of time with us.
Pet owners are encouraged to call for updates for hospitalized patients. If the doctor is not available, a technician can give a status report and answer various questions. Visiting is also encouraged within specified visiting hours, although we prefer to limit visits to two times per day.
