Who We Are…

Dr. Deborah Smith and Dr. Joseph Pavlik, have a combined 50 years experience in small animal veterinary medicine.  They joined efforts in 1997 to acquire Hastings Animal Hospital and fulfill the dream of a full service hospital that still has the personal touch of a “neighborhood” veterinary practice.  Hastings Animal Hospital offers the most current veterinary knowledge and technology, unsurpassed tender and compassionate care for your pets, and the highest standards of professional customer service and respect for our clients. Our continuing goal is to be the veterinary hospital that best meets the needs of our patients and their owners, serving Sierra Madre, Hastings Ranch, Arcadia and East Pasadena.


Meet the Doctors…
