About the Hospital

La Costa Animal Hospital is a full service veterinary hospital specializing in the care of both cats and dogs. A fixture in the community since its establishment, La Costa Animal Hospital has been caring for your animal loved ones for over thirty years. While predominantly serving the Carlsbad area, it is not unusual for clients to travel from all over San Diego County to have their pets cared for by Dr. Schatzle and Dr. Ecker.

We are an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited hospital, and have been since 1988. Choosing an AAHA accredited veterinary practice for your pet's medical care assures you that it has the facilities, equipment, staff, and medical protocols that AAHA believes are vital for the delivery of high quality care. Further, voluntary commitment to the AAHA Standards and the Accreditation Program demonstrates that the practice has chosen to be measured by an outside organization against the most rigorous published standards in the industry.

We are also a Silver-Level Cat Friendly Practice, as determined by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP).  This means that we have proven we have taken specific extra steps to assure we understand cats' unique needs and have implemented feline-friendly standards. 

We pride ourselves in the high quality and personalized nature of our care, and we work tirelessly to strengthen and maintain the bond between you and your pet.
