Dear Valued Clients at Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic,

As the Covid-19 crisis continues to challenge our daily lives, we wish to say 

THANK YOU for your support!

THANK YOU for your trust!

THANK YOU for our relationship!

THANK YOU for your patience and understanding!

First and most important, we hope that this email finds you and those you love healthy.  These are the most challenging times and over the course of the past 5 months, we have seen many changes to what was considered normal.  We have been successfully following the City of Los Angeles and California Veterinary Medical Association guidelines.  As such, we truly have appreciated your patience and understanding as we have made and followed their suggestions.  We were hoping to open the office to a more personalized experience as before but due to the increased COVID-19 numbers, we are not able to move to this stage.  Below are the protocols that we are following:

Please refer to our website for the most up to date information.  www.ranchoparkveterinaryclinic.com 

Appointments are required.  We do not accept unscheduled walk-ins.  If you have an emergency, you must call us in advance so we can understand your problem and prepare to triage.

Please plan to park in the parking lot behind our building and call us when you arrive.  Our goal is to minimize your contact with our staff.  When you arrive:

Call our Receptionist 310-474-3398 to be checked in.  

We will be asking you to describe your car: color and model and your phone number.

You are required to wear a mask or our staff will not be able to retrieve your pet.

Having as much information regarding why your pet is being examined written down on paper along with your cell phone number and a secondary number will help speed things through.  Please make sure to keep your phone available at all times.

Please plan on staying in your vehicle until a plan of action is determined by our doctor and is authorized by you.  

This process may take longer than usual and we appreciate your patience as your pet is triaged through our hospital.

For example, a routine examination can take at least 30-45 minutes.

We are finding wait times on the phone are longer than usual due to this extended process.  We are very sorry for the delays and appreciate your patience.

We are being extra diligent in our COVID-19 world to maintain the safety of our staff and yourselves so we can continue to offer the level of excellence as we have had for the past 34 years. 

Stay safe and healthy,

Drs. Marks, Nicolayevsky "Nic", Choi, Gabriele, Pacifici, Soto and the RPVC Team


In order to keep the community safe, we will be CLOSING early to respect the city of Los Angeles' curfew.

Please check our facebook/instagram for current updates on our hours.

For over 35 years, we have worked along side every race, color and sexual orientation.  RPVC DOES NOT condone racism or prejudice of any kind.

Many people have reached out to us and we want to thank you for your continued support.

All our love, the Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic Team

Stay safe Los Angeles!

Call Us Today at


For over 30 years, our veterinarians, Dr. Jeffrey Marks , Dr. Lara Nicolayevsky ("Dr. Nic") Dr. Joanna Choi, Dr. Jennifer Gabriele, Dr. Sarina Pacifici and Dr. Ruby Soto  at Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic in West Los Angeles have been dedicated in serving your pet’s health and wellness.  We take pride in having the finest West Los Angeles veterinarian team, which has made us the premier animal hospital in and around the Los Angeles community.

As a full service West Los Angeles veterinary hospital, we offer everything from wellness exams, spay and neuter services, pet dental cleanings, surgical needs, vaccinations, and pharmaceutical medicine.  We also provide the community with daytime emergency and urgent pet care services.  Our state-of-the-art laboratory and in-house diagnostics team can run everything from routine tests and digital x-rays to more intensive ultrasound examinations.

General Pet Medicine at Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic

One of the most important services we offer is routine wellness exams because we want to help detect any problems that may be invisible to us, but are experienced by your pet.  These exams allow us to look for any signs of parasites, dermatological, otoscopic, or ophthalmological conditions.  Our team will do a head to tail exam, including listening to your pet's heart, examination of the skin, eyes, ears, and musculoskeletal system.  We may do testing of the blood, stool, and urine to assess organ function.  If your pet is due for any vaccinations or annual services, these can be updated during the course of the wellness examination. 

Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic offers routine pet dental care, such as cleanings and minor oral surgeries.  One day a month, we offer non-anesthetic pet dental cleanings by appointment only.  Other services we offer include spay and neuter surgeries, microchipping, a full-service pharmacy and a wide array of pet food and dietary supplements for animal health.

Surgical Services and Emergency Care

Our talented West Los Angeles veterinarians can perform more complex surgeries than basic spay or neuter procedures.  Some of our surgical procedures involve various soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries. Your pet is safely anesthetized and monitored in our high-tech lab throughout the procedure, whether they are routine or an emergency.  We have staff on hand for urgent care Monday through Saturday, and recommend calling or arriving as soon as possible, so we can begin administering immediate treatment.

We promise that we will treat your pet like they are our own, and you will feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door.  Take our Virtual Office Tour to see for yourself.  Schedule an appointment today with Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic in West Los Angeles by calling 310-474-3398. 

At Rancho Park Veterinary Clinic, your pets are our family!
