Shelly Wilson, DVM

Veterinarian/Chief of Staff

"I can't remember ever not wanting to be a veterinarian! My wonderful Uncle George said racehorse jockey was my first choice, but after advising me I might grow too tall, I chose animal doctor!" Of course, when Dr. Wilson established her own practice here in Ventura  in 1995, she named it The Animal Doctor!


Dr. Wilson is one of the few veterinarians in our area to treat bunnies & pocket pets, as well as dogs, cats, puppies, & kittens! "I feel so lucky to have a career that I love. My patients bring unique & special relationships  to our lives, & sharing them with their people is the best!"

Dr. Wilson's passion is competitive horse jumping! You'll also find her at Mammoth skiing, or on a lake wake-boarding just to keep things interesting!
