Dr. White DVM
Owner & Director

In the field since he was 13 years old when his poodle Buffy was mauled to death by a feral dog, Dr. White has committed his life to our beloved companion animals. From kennel worker to dog washer to technician, and finally veterinarian, he's had the privilege to work at every level of the business to appreciate what a fine oiled working facility needs: high quality medical/surgical services with a bedside manner that has been lost by most of the veterinarian community. A local boy from San Pedro, his mother Marsha (a loving housewife) & father Harry (a longshoreman from ILWU Local 13) supported his dream with heart and soul, till he graduated, and moved back to his beloved home town back in 1994. For almost 20 years of practice he has built a philosophy that his clients' pets are his pets, and with them, bathes in the unconditional love they give, and suffers in their sadness when they have passed on. Loving all aspects of the veterinary field (his clinic offers surgery, hospitalization, complimentary therapy, internal medicine, dermatology, puppy/kitten wellness, flea control, dental hygiene, etc.), Dr. White complements his AAHA accredited veterinary center with a mobile house call service for in-home euthanasia services. When he gets time off, he loves going to Cabrillo Beach or to Royal Palms with his wife Sophia, and his children Christopher & Olivia. Feel free to call him anytime at his cell number if you have questions. (310) 968-8370 + Read more
