Best Advanced Animal Health care and Acupuncture Los Angeles 2010 

Advanced Veterinary Care Center

Most animal lovers would do anything for an ailing pet, and so will the cardiologists, oncologists, neurosurgeons and acupuncturists at Lawndale’s Advanced Veterinary Care Center. This regional-services clinic offers expert care to furry patients and compassionate support for the humans who love them. When somebody I know very well took her 16-year-old Persian cat in for an electrocardiogram, the doctor (who spoke with a charming Australian accent) comforted her as much as he did the long-haired kitty. Whether your pet suffers from respiratory problems, endocrine disorders, leukemia, lymphoma or another serious condition, there’s a doctor at AVCC who specializes in its treatment. Among the advanced offerings are acupuncture and chiropractic care for Fluffy and Fido. Animals with asthma, epilepsy, arthritis and other ailments can benefit from acupuncture, administered by a veterinarian certified in the ancient Chinese practice. This isn’t a kitty spa or an everyday vet practice – it’s for seriously ill pets in the greater Los Angeles area who need special care. 15926 Hawthorne Blvd., Lawndale. (310) 542-8018. advancedveterinarycarecenter.com. —Christine Pelisek
