Our Team

Professional staff

At Malibu Coast Animal Hospital we are proud to provide phenomenal client service and veterinary care. We place the utmost importance on offering the highest standard of care for our patients, which is why we require our doctors to be internship-trained. Our doctors, as well as our support staff, routinely participate in continuing education so that we may continue to provide the latest and most effective service and treatments for our patients.

Other top priorities are communication and education. Our courteous and knowledgeable staff is happy to answer your questions, provide you with information regarding basic or advanced care of your four-legged loved one and discuss all medical options so you are able to make an informed decision that is right for your family and pet.

The Malibu Coast Animal Hospital staff participates in local community service and charitable events including supporting Healthcare for Homeless Animals (formerly Malibu Pet Companions), Westside German Shepherd Rescue, Angels Bark Dog Rescue, the California Wildlife Center and many more.
