"We treat your pets as if they were our own"  and  "Our goal is to have the finest hospital in the area" 

Dear Pet Owners,                                

     Our main veterinarian, Dr. Edward Song, is the first American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) Board Certified Dog and Cat Specialist in Laguna Niguel. ABVP Diplomates in Canine and Feline Practice offer proven knowledge and expertise above and beyond other veterinarians and have earned the privilege to specialize in the treatment of dogs and cats. By this achievement, Dr. Song demonstrates a strong commitment to the best possible care for your pet. 

     Dr. Song became part of a small group of veterinarians across the country who has earned the title Diplomate from the ABVP Board Certified Dog and Cat Specialist. To become a Board Certified Specialist, Dr. Song made a choice to undergo a very long and difficult process that took several years to complete. He made the professional choice to pursue additional studies and examinations to achieve this outstanding goal.

     We would like to encourage you to forward our website address to your friends and family. South Coast Veterinary Hospital is one of the finest pet care facilities serviced by the Board Certified Dog and Cat Specialist in Southern California. We believe that the quality, compassion and knowledge we provide are the foundation for superior pet care and we strive to achieve these high standards at all times.

     Our goal is to have the finest hospital in the area. We are continually upgrading our facility so that we can have the best diagnostic testing, the safest anesthetic procedures, and the most advanced surgical equipment that can be found anywhere. Equally important to us, is that we have a friendly, well trained staff to make your visit to our hospital a pleasant experience.

     South Coast Veterinary Hospital is open 6 days a week, including all day Saturdays (Mon-Fri: 7:30 am-6 pm, Sat: 8 am-4 pm). We are close on Sunday. 

     We provide all general cares, as well as advanced pet care services by the board certificed dog and cat specialist, which include: tumor/bone surgeries, TTA surgery for torn ACL/CCL knee, endoscopy, laparoscopy, eye surgery, laser surgery, on-site digital X-rays, heart & abdominal ultrasound, non-anesthetic and anesthetic dentistry, needle/laser acupuncture therapy and herb therapy, and laboratory testing. You will see the reasons why we get many referral clients from our pre-existing clients. We also provide veterinary care for dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, pocket pets and reptiles.

     Please feel free to ask for a tour of our facility. We know you will appreciate our clean office, our caring staff and convenient hours and location.

    Very Truly Yours, 

    Dr. Song and Associates
