Our Favorite Los Angeles Veterinarians

Our Favorite Los Angeles Veterinarians

by Rita Reimers

A Trusted Veterinarian is Essential for Your Cat’s Health

We are often asked to recommend veterinarians to people who are new to the Los Angeles area, or who just want a new doctor for their kitties.

There are two I recommend right off the bat, and who were my personal veterinarians when I still lived in LA: Dr. Gaetan Reina and Dr. Jason Rattan.

Dr. Gaetan Reina, LA Pet Clinic
Dr. Reina was a godsend to me at a time when I had a very special needs kitty, my late Sadie (for whom I wrote by book, Sadie’s Heart). Sadie had a severe heart problem, and I needed a talented veterinarian.

One of my good friends, Iris Goldman (our COO), recommended Dr. Reina.

Now, Dr. Reina’s office isn’t new and beautiful, in fact it is so small and unattractive that I nearly decided not to go inside. But that would have been a big mistake. I find myself wanting to call him Dr. Doolittle, for he is truly gifted in his ability to assess a problem, even before the test results confirm it.

He can be hard to get an appointment with, because his is so inexpensive and because he is so popular, but Dr. Reina is well worth the wait, especially if you have a cat with a mysterious or hard to treat illness.

Dr. Jason Rattan, Park LaBrea Veterinary Care and Pico Boulevard Pet Hospital
Los Angeles Veterinarian Dr Rattan
I first met Dr. Rattan when I adopted my senior cat, Pickles, from the Van Nuys Animal Shelter. I was given a free visit as part of the adoption.

I had heard of Dr. Rattan around town for years as he enjoys a reputation of being a caring and compassionate doctor. He lived up to all the lofty expectations I had about him, and became my second go-to veterinarian. He actually knows Dr. Reina, and had nothing but good things to say about him. Right there he won my loyalty, talking positively about a colleague and competitor, and asking me to extend his good wishes next time I saw Dr. Reina.

Another great thing about Dr. Rattan is you have two great locations to choose from, Park LaBrea Veterinary Care and Pico Boulevard Pet Hospital. Although he is a little more expensive than Dr. Reina, he doesn’t book up as tightly, so he can squeeze in unexpected emergency appointments.

Those are the two of the best veterinarians in LA, according to me and the many clients I have referred to them both. Please feel free to tell us about YOUR favorite vet! Los Angeles being so large, it would be wonderful to know of more exceptional doctors located in other parts of LA and the San Fernando Valley.

Dr Dean Gebroe at Culver City Animal Hospital is the best! He has taken great care of my animals and me for 15 years :).

I am moving to Los Angeles soon and I want to make sure I have someone ready and trusted to take my pets to. I like that there are customer reviews and people raving about Dr. Reina. Having good reviews makes it a lot easier to choose a veterinarian. I will definitely consider him when I get to Los Angeles.

Hi Dave,

Dr. Reina is wonderful, and very intuitive when it comes to the pets. I have seen him save some that others had said were hopeless. Three of us here at JFC go to him, and many of our clients do as well.

Please tell him we sent you!

And welcome to Los Angeles!
