If you live in Laguna Niguel or the surrounding area in CA, then you have picked the perfect site to find a veterinarian. Dr. Pat Echolds is a licensed veterinarian, with a clinical focus on canine and feline medicine and surgery. Your pet's health and well being are very important to us and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care. Rancho Niguel Animal Hospital is a full service animal hospital and will take both emergency cases as well as less urgent, medical, surgical and wellness visits. Dr. Echolds is experienced in all types of conditions and treatments.

Dr. Echolds developed a vision of creating a veterinary facility with intimate customer service and a smaller "personalized" atmosphere for his clients and their pets. He believes that a veterinary practice can be state of the art with cutting edge animal care, but yet still go back to being a "good old fashioned family doctor practice." This vision was realized with the founding of Rancho Niguel Animal Hospital in 2011.

The staff here at Rancho Niguel Animal Hospital are excited about meeting your pet and developing a long lasting friendship with you and your family. We are available for second opinions. We value your feedback, and please, do not hesitate to tell your friends about the positive difference Rancho Niguel Animal Hospital has made in your pet's life.
