OUR HISTORY

allen_and_roz.jpg

Our legacy begins with Dr. Alan Marks, Dr. Jeffrey Marks' father, who founded the first freestanding small animal veterinary hospital in the world in Detroit, Michigan.  Although there had been many mixed animal and large animal practices, there had never been a freestanding hospital devoted to dogs and cats. 

After 20 successful years in Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Alan Marks moved to Los Angeles in 1962 with his family where he took over as the owner of Washington Dog and Cat Hospital.  With the purchase of Washington Dog and Cat Hospital, Dr. Alan Marks set about to provide compassionate and effective veterinary care to the Mid City/Downtown Los Angeles area. 

As the practice quickly expanded so did the hospital.  In 1971, a major renovation of the facility took place which included a seperate, state-of-the-art surgical suite as well as a full service in-house laboratory.  In 1980, Dr. Alan Marks was joined by his son Dr. Jeffrey Marks, who became chief doctor in 1983.  Shortly thereafter Dr. Jeffrey Marks' wife Mari joined the team as hospital administrator.

Since then Washington Dog and Cat Hospital has been redesigned several times to accomodate an ever growing clientele with a variety of needs. The staff is now happy to offer new technologies such as, ultrasound and a video otoscope.  Washington Dog and Cat Hospital also offers emergency service, boarding and grooming. 

Dr. Marks and his staff at Washington Dog and Cat Hospital are committed to being the number one, full service veterinary hospital in the Mid City/Downtown Los Angeles area.
