This is a dreadful veterinary clinic ; overpriced and with very poor care and hostile and unpleasant staff. This is the second anniversary of our adored Cat ARTHUR's death due to their over-medicating him for a routine office visit, and no-one ever got in touch, no condolences, no cards , just a vile hostile and unpleasant staff. After we brought him due to their poor treatment a practically lifeless Arthur, he was happy to be home with us, even though he died a few hours later on the bed all wrapped up in afghans. Arthur's death was so sad and upsetting, and if the PMC people were less greedy, and better vet's his needless death would never have occured. The Pet Burial people were wonderful, and he is buried at a special Pet Cemetary in Gardena, and we visit him often. Months later when we were ready for a new kitten we got 2 special Kitties from a wonderful rescue group, and of course we had a wonderful new vet at another veterinary clinic, we got that referral from the lovely women at the Pet Burial Group.We still miss Arthur, we still visit him many times a year, and have his photographs up, and everyyear we write on this site or similar sites about PMC, and we always honor Arthur's death with Memorial Contribution to a very special rescue group. The only good to come of this tragic situation, and PMC's vile behavior was that we got 2 special kittens/ 2 sister kitties.

The time had come, I had to put my beloved cat down yesterday. When I called and spoke to the nicest guy (can't remember his name), as I cried on the phone, he made the appt time for me, had me fill out the form on line, as I walked in the door, he greated me, I didn't have to say anything, he took me into a room, for which he had the nicest warm blanket and and nice bed for my baby! Dr. Isaacs is understand and a very compassionate vet She lets you decided, when to give the last injection while they are sleeping. Dr Isaacs and nice guy I can not thank you enough for the compassion you had for my pet and me!
This is the most caring, comprehensive, experienced veterinary hospital on the westside! I've been a client for over 10 years and have brought all my dogs, cats and rats to the doctors here - all were treated exceptionally well! The staff has been there forever and know everything! Everyone is so caring and so obviously love animals. In fact, they have a hospital cat named Pablo and Robin's dog Frankie is there everytday sitting in the lobby greeting everyone. Go here! They rock!

The quality of the care my cat and dogs receive is second to none! I have always been given an estimate of the options I have for preventative and sick care. My only gripe is that it takes a long time to check out, but the emergency vets at Animal Surgery on Sepulveda say that the records the PMC doctors keep are the best they ever get. So, if I have to wait 10 extra minutes for really good record keeping, I guess it's worth it.
I have been a client of Santa Monica Pet Medical Center for over 15 years. The quality of their doctors is unmatched! Their management staff have all worked there for over 12 years. They have treated all 5 of my dogs, all 5 of my cats, my rabbit and my pet rats. The caring and compassion the doctors and staff have for animals is the best I have ever seen (whether in the Midwest where I'm from or the Valley where I used to live). They recently renovated their whole building (which was hard to live through), but the results are amazing! The hospital is clean and open and they bought a bunch of new equipment to better take care of my remaining 2 dogs and rabbit. I have and will continue to recommend them to all of my friends!

They are the friendliest people i have met. They love dogs and love their job. Johnny and Tyler have helped me out of situations when i thought i had no other choice. They watch my dog when i am away, walk my dog every day, and have actually become friends through the process. They are wonderful! And anyone would be lucky to have their pet taken care of by them.
The best veterinary experience in a long time. ALL the vets there have lots of real world experience and gray hairs - i love it. I received probably the clearest explanation of my dogs problem (spleen) and all the treatment options. No hard sell on anything. I went to a new vet in a pet store and was underimpressed with the medicine but a great show was put on. The older technician has been there 25 years and had some great stories. Thought all the serious pet owners who want quality care at a fair price should know about Santa Monica Pet Medical Center.
I have been a client of theirs for about 10 years, and have watched the changes. They are really doing everything right with new medicine, techniques, technology and staff. Their building is much improved after the remodeling and better.
The new Dr. Isaacs is great. She is old school along with Dr. George. I work long hours during the week for the last couple years and it has been hard to see Dr. George. So I have seen Dr. Isaacs on Saturdays. Very nice woman.

I'll be booking an appointment to take my cat, Spike, in to see Dr. Mary Isaacs DVM, right after I finish this review. I think she is the BEST vet, EVER!!! So, much so that for about 15 years I have enjoyed her caring for my pets...
I have followed her from Encino Veterinary Clinic to Veterinary Medical Center in Studio City (driving from & back to Venice - worth it!)... and, I just spent hours tracking down her new location at Pet Medical Center in Santa Monica. I must be doing something right... I found her! And, it's a shorter drive!! Lucky me!!!
So, my 5-Star rating is based on this extraordinary woman. You CAN trust her, I promise...
Thrilled I found these guys hidden on a side street. Discovered them while getting my brakes done nearby. Busy place, very clean and modern, I guess it has been there for 40 years or something. 5 doctors. Definitely not a corporate outfit, family owned and operated. Just what I have been looking for. Great staff with a sense of humour. They actually enjoy their jobs from what I saw. My dog was very comfortable there and had fun? He is normally not good in such a setting. Good karma I guess.

I've bounced around with different vets for the last two years. I go a free exam deal from VCA Petville and was unimpressed by be offered every product and service imaginable.
I went to Santa Monica Pet Medical and told the Doctor that I want basic care, I'm not interested in prolongingly my dogs life forever, I just was good basic help. He was more than happy to break it down into the essentiall category vs. the nice to have. I didn't get a lecture, just understanding. Thank you.
Service and attention was perfect. I didn't feel like they wanted to be my best friend, and I didn't feel like a stranger either, just how I like it.
If you want a place that is not the corporate sell you everything, than this is the one in SM.
