Catherine Loughner, Medical Director

Dr. Loughner grew up in Elk Grove, California, where her desire to become a veterinarian came after she had the unique experience of seeing a two-headed calf during a field trip to a local veterinary hospital. She was only eight years old at the time.

Dr. Loughner completed her undergraduate program at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Illinois- College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation Dr. Loughner returned to California, practicing in different areas of California, including Elk Grove, Pacific Grove, and Sacramento before coming to VCA Greenback Animal Hospital in the fall of 2007.

Dr. Loughner is owned by three spoiled cats: Madi, Nash and Clark. She thoroughly enjoys being back in her hometown and is looking forward to taking care of your precious pets.
