At a Glance

My Pets:

Jordan - 12-year-old Husky
Flapjack - 10-year-old Chihuahua Mix
Dr. Kimberly Vu completed her undergraduate studies at Cal Poly Pomona where she earned a degree in Animal Science. She then attended Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona for veterinary school. She was born and raised in Orange County and will always consider Southern California to be her home. She lived in Arizona for 4 years but says it's nice to be back on the Sunny West Coast! Outside of work, she enjoys live music, food, traveling, the great outdoors, and taking the dogs along whenever possible! She also has no problem spending a whole day cozying up on the couch with her dogs watching TV shows and movies.
