paw Team Spotlight
William Radovich
DVM, Washington State University Medical Director
Licensed in CA, MT, OR and WA

Dr. William Radovich grew up in Montana, where animals constantly surrounded him. He learned how to ride a horse at the same time he was learning how to walk. As far back as he can remember Dr. Radovich always knew he would one day become a veterinarian.

Dr. Radovich attended Montana State University to major in Animal Science. He also completed two minors in Endocrinology and Nutrition. After graduation, he was accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University. Four years later, he moved with his wife to sunny southern California. After working in Huntington Beach for five years, Dr. Radovich opened his own clinic, VCA Airport Irvine Animal Hospital, in 1978.

When Dr. Radovich first moved to California, there was only one other surgical specialist in all of Orange County. As a result, he is adept in all kinds of pet surgery—Dr. Radovich suspects he’s done more upper-airway surgeries than anyone in the country. He also likes interacting with clients and seeing generations of pet owners bring their four-legged friends to the clinic.

Dr. Radovich and his wife have two daughters. They share their home with Maggy, a cockapoo who likes to start playtime just as Dr. Radovich would like to wind down for the day.

In his free time, Dr. Radovich is an avid competitive shooter. He’s participated in many charity and benefit shoots, and has been lucky enough to shoot alongside famous individuals like Roy Rogers, Ed Ames, and Charlton Heston. Dr. Radovich also spends a good deal of his spare time astride one of his many motorcycles.

After 38 years as the owner of Airport Irvine, Dr. Radovich joined VCA, but continues as Medical Director at the hospital to care for his patients.
