The History of Our Animal Hospital in Alhambra:
Serving the Community’s Pets for Over 37 Years

West Main Animal Hospital has proudly provided the Alhambra and surrounding communities with veterinary services since 1978.  In 1977 Dr. George Wilson transformed the building, which had then been known as Coutts Plumbing, into a veterinary practice. In 1994, Dr. Laszlo A. Frics, DVM, remodeled the entire building from a 1,500-square-foot to a 3,200-square-foot animal hospital.

“I have always admired how Dr. Wilson served his community and the relationships he had with the people here in Alhambra,” said Veterinarian and hospital owner Laszlo Frics. “When it came time to start my own practice, I knew that Alhambra would be a great place. Alhambra is central to the greater Los Angeles area and was a great place to be when Dr. Wilson was here, and even a greater place to be now.” Dr. Frics has seen many changes in the Alhambra landscape since taking ownership of West Main Animal Hospital 20 years ago.

“Aside from the obvious changes, such as city development and real estate, the Alhambra community as a whole has become much more progressive when it comes to their furry, beloved pets,” said Dr. Frics. “Pet owners have become more responsible and diligent about their pets’ health, making our role as animal health care providers that much more rewarding.”

What Sets Our Team Apart

West Main Animal Hospital is a full-service animal hospital that offers typical medical treatment and procedures for animals. They also offer pet adoption, pet boarding, grooming, laser therapy for pain management and arthritis, and much more all in one convenient location. West Main Animal Hospital’s staff has a genuine compassion for the wellbeing of both the pet owners and their pets. There are 10 employees working both part time and full time. Several of them have been a part of the team for more than a year and many have exceeded 10 years. They all share a common goal: to provide exceptional medicine, nursing care, and customer service.

“As a privately owned and family run hospital, we are better able to cater to our clients’ needs,” said Dr. Frics. “At West Main Animal Hospital, we understand your bond with your pets.”

Dr. Frics and his team are grateful to serve the Alhambra community. Their focus is on nurturing current clients and expanding new relationships. He said that each time they are able to help families and their pets, it is a success story, which means they have had many success stories over the years.

“The doctors and staff at West Main Animal Hospital strive for excellence,” said Dr. Frics. “We are dedicated and committed to providing you and your pets with outstanding service, high quality medicine, and compassionate nursing care. We aim to exceed your expectations and in doing so, continue to achieve superior standards.”
