Blue Cross Pet Hospital: Compassionate Veterinary Care

North Hollywood vet for dogs and catsA trip to the vet can be stressful for pets and owners alike. The skilled veterinarians and staff at the North Hollywood pet hospital understand this and work to put the patient and owner at ease by offering high quality, compassionate care. The hospital has been serving pet owners from Burbank, North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, and Toluca Lake since 1949. In 1988, Dr. Lowenthal and Dr. Walters partnered up to purchase the animal hospital and continue to provide compassionate care. A year after purchasing the pet hospital, the veterinarians invited Dr. Jones to join the clinic. Patients benefit from the knowledge and experience that all three veterinarians utilize to provide expert medical, dental, surgical, and emergency care in the animal hospital.

Dr. Lowenthal, Dr. Walters, and Dr. Jones are supported at the veterinary clinic by a caring staff of receptionists, technicians, registered vet technicians, and administrative staff. All members of the veterinary team work together to provide the best quality care for dogs and cats in North Hollywood and surrounding areas. The veterinarians and the veterinary clinic staff constantly strive to stay current on technological advances in the veterinary field and work to improve pet health by sharing information with pet owners.

  • "This is the only vet I'll bring my dog to. Their care and attention is amazing. They are upfront about pricing and will do what they can to work with you. They are always amazingly considerate of dogs with social anxiety and have treated both Scooby and me with respect. Best vet if you ask me!"
