About Us

Hillcrest Pet Hospital Veterinarian

Hillcrest Pet Hospital, affectionately named for the mountains surrounding it, has been serving the greater Los Angeles area since being founded in 1959 in Glendale, California by Dr. Saya. Dr. Saya was Hillcrest’s beloved doctor for over 30 years. Dr. Fries was Hillcrest’s beloved doctor for over 40 years. Dr. Odet Kaspari-Chiriboga became the new owner of Hillcrest Pet Hospital in July 2021 and is beyond thrilled to care for Hillcrest’s adored pets. 

We feel blessed to have been grandfathered in to a residential area and are surrounded by fantastic neighborhoods such as Whiting Woods, Oakmont Woods, Sparr Heights and Montrose. 

We are conveniently located on the cross streets of Honolulu and La Crescenta close to downtown Montrose, right off Interstate 210. 


Our faith in Christ Jesus is the foundation of everything we do and we are proud to share this with our clients and team members. 

We are a family-oriented practice that strives to ensure that both it’s clients and employees feel loved and cared for. We are here to help in anyway possible - you are family to us. 

We truly want clients to feel at home when they walk in the door, knowing they have come to a place where they will get the best treatment for their pets with the transparency of care for their pets. We have no “secret” back treatment rooms. We want you to be treated just as we would want to be treated. 

We love our community and want to do everything we can to provide the best care. 

What Makes Hillcrest Pet Hospital Different? 

We feel that our faith in Christ Jesus sets us apart from other veterinary hospitals. We want our team, our clients, and our community to feel this as they walk in. 

As a privately owned, small business we strive to be anything but corporate. Our clients are not a number to us - you and your pets matter.
