Donna Brinck, DVM, Medical Director

Cal Poly

Biography

Dr. Brinck attended Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo where she earned her undergraduate degree in Biology. She moved to Germany where she worked in research for several years, then went on to study Veterinary Medicine in Munich at Ludwig Maximilians University. She worked with large and small animals in Germany before returning to the U.S. to practice in Florida.
In 2012, recovering from the loss of her husband to cancer, Dr. Brinck decided to move home to California with her son Alex and Pluto, her Bavarian Alpine Scent Hound to live in beautiful Santa Cruz. Her passions, besides animals, include travel, hiking, enjoying the Pacific's treasures such as otter watching to name just a few. She is excited to join the team at VCA Bascom and welcomes all the new furry faces to the practice as the new Medical Director.
