During Veterinary school, Dr. Kaya did an externship at the San Diego Zoo fostering his interest in exotic animal medicine.

His immediate family includes two dogs, Hunter and Kuromi, a cat, Pebbles, a leopard tortoise, Cheetah, and a handful of box turtles that roam the yard.
We recommend that dogs and cats receive vaccinations depending on their lifestyle and exposure. For puppies and kittens, we offer three sets of vaccinations each one month apart. Dr. Kaya, Dr. Sakamoto, and Dr. Ong will assess and recommend what vaccines, if any, will best protect your pet.
We offer regular annual and semi-annual physical exams for all dogs and cats. For puppies and kittens, it is important to detect medical conditions as early as possible. Yearly physical examinations reassures us and our clients that their pets are in good physical shape well into their geriatric years.
