Pet Medical Center was founded in 1965. Our Chatoak facility has been in the same location ever since and is certified by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Our most important goal is providing excellent veterinary medical care for the dogs and cats in our neighborhood. We take that responsibility seriously.
It's rewarding to know that you and your pet feel comfortable and cared for when you come to us for veterinary medical care. Even though we are one of the largest practices in the San Fernando Valley, every staff member at Pet Medical Center will listen to your needs. We will involve you with your pet's veterinary care each step of the way. Our veterinarians and technicians take the time to explain treatments with compassion and empathy. We are delighted to teach you how to take the best care of your pet at home so that you have a long life together.
Our Mission is to provide a lifetime of quality, compassionate veterinary care to our clients, their pets, and our community, thus enriching the human-animal bond. We do this through a team approach that encourages the education of our staff and clients in a friendly, respectful environment.
Pet Medical Center is your neighborhood veterinary clinic, but we are not a specialty referral facility. We get to know you and your pet. Pet Medical Center emphasizes compassionate veterinary care. The professional staff at Pet Medical Center is a group of caring, knowledgeable individuals. Your dog or cat is treated like a member of our family. We always work with you and answer any questions to your satisfaction. We are your neighbors and look forward to being your pet's friend too.
