Kelli Kopf
Veterinary Specialist DVM, MS, DACVIM (Neurology)

Dr. Kopf started her VCA Alameda East adventure over a decade ago. She has been providing top quality neurology and neurosurgery care for pets and their owners since the start.

Dr. Kopf has always been an animal lover. She was fortunate to recognize her bond with animals at an early age. Her genuine connection and empathy for animals is apparent in the gentle way she interacts with her patients.

Her true passion in veterinary medicine is to help foster the human-animal bond, and she recognizes the importance of that bond to pet owners. She strives to help her clients understand their pet's condition and is often seen mapping out the possible problems and options on a whiteboard in exam rooms. Along with the pet's primary veterinarian, she will work with clients to give their pet the best quality-of-life possible.

Outside of work, Dr. Kopf spends as much time as possible connecting with family, friends, pets, and nature. Alternatively, she can be found organizing – anything and everything.
