Dr. Judy’s career in veterinary medicine started in 1979 after graduating from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. Having grown up in the Midwest, he ventured to Southern California after graduating to begin his practice which included companion animals in addition to exotic and equine medicine. Currently, he serves companion animals exclusively and holds membership to CVMA, AVMA, and SDCVMA. He also serves as Chair on the Board of Directors for Lions, Tigers, and Bears, a local non-profit serving neglected and abandoned exotics.
Dr. Judy has remained steadfast in his ethos – dedication to the well-being of animals – by frequently attending continuing education seminars beyond the required state board minimums and seeking out the latest technology to benefit his patients. Although he doesn’t plan to retire for a couple more years, Dr. Judy is looking to scale his hours back in order to spend more time with his wife, their cat Skunk, and four dogs, two Golden Doodles, Bugs and Lola, a Pom-Tzu, Georgie, and a Terrier mix, Tinkerbell, at their home away from home near Lake Tahoe.
Presently, he is taking guitar, bass, and vocal lessons, as once he retires from his day job, he fully intends to become a rockstar god.
