Jennifer Star Seward
Medical Director

Dr. Seward is our hospital Medical Director. She graduated from UC Davis in 1998 and has been working here since shortly after her second child was born. (That child is now heading to college, so you do the math!) Although she is not a specialist in exotic pets, she is happy to see rodents, rabbits, reptiles, and birds in addition to dogs and cats.

In her spare time, she loves to hike, bike, and Scottish Country dance with her husband of 26 years. She has another grown child who lives in Colorado, two adorable young cats that are hard to tell apart, and a small dog who is slowly getting older. To round things out, she has 3 snakes (a 40-year-old Ball Python, a 30-year-old Red-Tailed Boa, and a 30-year-old Sinaloan Milksnake).
