Joyce Wong, DVM
As a child, Dr. Joyce Wong always wanted to learn everything she could about whatever animal she was interested in at the time. As she got older, her love of science started to bloom. She chose the veterinary profession because it allows her to exercise her passion for the sciences while working directly with the animals that she loves!
Dr. Wong was raised in the Los Angeles suburbs and attended UC Davis to study animal science. She worked as a veterinary technician for two years after graduation, then returned to UC Davis for veterinary school. Dr. Wong has special interests in ophthalmology and small furry exotic mammal medicine (rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, chinchillas, and ferrets). She is also passionate about animal behavior and loves strengthening the bond between pets and people by improving mannerisms and mood.
When she isn't caring for pets here at Family Pet Clinic, Dr. Wong can be found playing Ultimate Frisbee, traveling, spending time outdoors, or hanging out with her terrier mix Noodle.
