Dr. Gary Adams is a Los Angeles native, born and raised on Santa Monica, CA. Growing up near the beach, there was no shortage of sick and abandoned animals for him to take home and nurse back to health. Friends and relatives always predicted that he would become a vet one day. During his first year of college, sick of lifeguarding, he got a job as a veterinary assistant at California Animal Hospital in West LA, and it was there that he developed his passion for veterinary medicine.
After receiving a BS in Biology from Cal State Northridge, he went on to vet school at UC Davis where he graduated from the School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. After vet school, he came back to LA and worked at California Animal Hospital from 1998-2005 and 2010-2014. From 2005-2010, he co-owned and operated Westside Animal Hospital in Santa Monica, the only 24 hour facility west of Sepulveda. He returned to general practice in 2010.
Throughout his career, he actively supported the rescue community, providing free and discounted services for these animals in need. He still lives in Santa Monica and spends as much time as possible at the beach with his 2 legged kids, Bowie and Layla.
