Dr Ravn's Home Vet Care

House Call Veterinarian

Dr Ravn's Home Vet Care is a house call veterinary service in San Fransisco and the peninsula providing veterinary care to your furry loved ones in the comfort of your home.

About Me

I grew up in both Southern California and in Norway. We always had a variety of animals in our home. From a young age I knew I wanted to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. 

 

While competing for their women's NCAA basketball team, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Animal Science at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2007. 

I returned to Europe for vet school, and was awarded my veterinary degree in the United Kingdom at the University of Bristol in 2013. The first two years of my young vet career I spent working with small animals in Cardiff, Wales. 

In 2015 I moved back to my home state of California and started working in San Francisco and the surrounding area.

After witnessing the wonders of acupuncture and alternative medicine in practice, I completed the Small Animal Acupuncture course in June 2019 at the Chi Institute in Reddick, Florida. 

I passionate about providing the highest level of care for all my patients in a compassionate, stress-free manner. I enjoy most facets of veterinary medicine but am most interested in internal medicine and especially geriatric care. 

 

I hold a number of animals very close to my heart, but have a special bond with my geriatric, mixed breed dog named Mia.
