A North Hollywood Vet comments:

North Hollywood Animal Clinic - catHere at Blue Cross Pet Hospital in North Hollywood, our veterinarian Dr. Peter Lowenthal and his veterinary staff believe that your pet's health services should be held to the same level of quality as your human health care provider. Our entire staff is comprised of animal lovers who genuinely care about your pet. Our animal clinic is open 7 days a week to dogs and cats.

Blue Cross Pet Hospital has been providing the communities of North Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Burbank, and Universal City with veterinary services since 1949 when the clinic was first established. Dr. Lowenthal and Dr. James Walters took over the vet clinic in 1988 and were soon followed by another talented veterinarian, Dr. Nahmi Jones. Our animal hospital keeps up-to-date with the latest technological advancements and has several veterinary affiliations including AVMA, CVMA, SCVMA, American Association of Feline Practitioners, and American Veterinary Dental Society.

Today we would like to present our new veterinary blog feature which will allow us to keep you updated on the latest news in pet health and general preventative home care. Please feel free to subscribe to our RSS feed above so that you can be automatically updated whenever we post a new topic to our blog.

  • "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!"
