Brookhurst Animal Medical Center has been providing care to the pets of our community for more than 10 years. The center is led by head veterinarian, Dr. Lopez. Growing up on a farm in a small town, he began riding horses around the time he learned how to walk. Eventually, Dr. Lopez went to agriculture school, and spent years learning about veterinary care for farm animals. Following his agricultural and veterinary degree, Dr. Lopez went on to emergency veterinary hospitals in Orange County and Los Angeles. He always knew that he wanted to open his own animal hospital, and in 2003, Brookhurst Animal Medical Center opened its doors.
Dr. Lopez specializes in care for dogs, cats, and exotics. His role in Nat Geo Mundo’s television show “Dr. Vet LA” allowed him to show his skills treating animals like tigers and elephants; at home at Brookhurst Animal Medical Center, the pets are usually tamer, but Dr. Lopez can adapt his knowledge to all different types of animals.
