Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Kira Didkovskaya


Our fabulous “Dr. D” received her DVM degree at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing in South Bay for over a decade. She approaches both her clients and her patients holistically, accounting for the needs of her patients AND their families; both her patients and her clients appreciate the time she takes with them – and the pets love the snuggles!

Dr. Sarah LaMoyne


Although Dr. LaMoyne grew up in California, she received her DVM degree from Oregon State University School of Veterinary Medicine and has also been practicing in South Bay for almost a decade. She takes pride in getting to know the individual stories and personalities of both her patients and clients. Dr. LaMoyne will make you feel right at home with the care she takes of you and your pet. Don’t be fooled by her “soul-dog” Kodak, she’s also a bonafide cat person with her two rescue kitties at home.

Dr. Michael Handley


Dr. Handley grew up in Michigan and received his DVM degree from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. An internship brought him out to the South Bay area over a decade ago and he decided to trade the snow for sunshine!

His passion is to educate pet parents so that they are as informed as possible about their four-legged companions to make the right decision for their family.
