Hello, I’m Dr. Kathy. Welcome to PetPoint! I am the lead veterinarian, with 18 years of expertise in both conventional and integrative medicine in Southern California.

We are very excited to introduce RawCoo, our own line of fresh natural dog nutrition, created and prepared at PetPoint by Tamara, our Executive Chef. With hundreds of pet guests visiting PetPoint every week, we experience the essential benefits of a fresh and natural ingredient diet.  Building a commercial kitchen for the creation of a healthy nutrition line of delicious meals and treats came naturally to us. We are proud to be the first such center in the US.

PetPoint is a family owned and operated premier Pet Care Center that offers everything for your pet’s health and wellbeing including conventional medical and holistic care, nutrition, resort boarding, daycare, salon, and training.
