TLC Pet Medical Centers was founded by Matthew Krieger and Howie Baker, DVM in June of 1999. Matt and Howie set out to create a special veterinary practice; one that provided cutting edge veterinary medical care with heart and soul.
Both Matt (as a consumer) and Howie (as a veterinarian)
This marriage produced TLC Pet Medical Center which opened for business in August of 2000. Shortly thereafter, Mark Hiebert, DVM joined the team and all three partners worked to fulfill TLC's Mission Statement.
After more than a decade, Matt, Howie and Mark enjoy watching the interactions between their clients, staff and patients and feel honored to serve the residents and pets of the South Pasadena and surrounding communities. Although Howie and Mark are still affiliated with TLC South Pasadena, they practice primarily at VCA - TLC Animal Hospital in West Hollywood.
TLC has chosen each of its staff veterinarians based on their demonstrated academic excellence, training and kind and caring hearts. At TLC, we pride ourselves on the fact that most of our doctors have been employed with us for greater than 5 years, which shows their committment to our clients and patients.

"TLC saved my dog after he was hit by a car. They were incredible in their care. They have a super modern hospital. Thanks TLC!"
"24 HOUR CARE! I love that I can take my dog and 2 cats for all of their needs to TLC- I have been at 1PM and 1AM and I get the same quality care. Dr. Wallace, Dr. Lu and Dr. Scott are wonderful."
"I have been a client of Dr. Tesauro since 1996. I continue to take my pets to her, even though I now live in the Inland Empire. She has gained my trust and I don't trust just anyone with my pets. The care my pets have received over the years has been excellent. I know I can contact her any time by phone or by e-mail and I will get a quick response. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a vet.The TLC staff is always helpful. TLC also has pet adoptions. If you would like to adopt a cat, ask for Nancy at the front desk. I adopted my cat from there 7 yrs ago and it has been a happily ever after story for both my cat and me.Good job TLC!"
