    Manuel Tovar is a Registered Veterinary Technician with over twenty two years of experience working in veterinary hospitals in the Los Angeles and South Bay area.

    Manuel's father was a banker in Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico and his job took him to local farms to inspect livestock. Growing up Manuel always loved animals and he often travelled to the farms with his father. These visits inspired him to attend the Universidad de Antionio Narro where he received his Medico Veterinary Zoologist (Doctorate in Veterinary Zoology).

    Manuel has lived in Lomita for many years and considers it his hometown. He enjoys working out and keeping physically fit. He and his son are also avid sports fans; football and baseball are their favorites.

    Manuel has been working at VCA Brentwood as the Surgery Technician for the last eleven years. He particularly enjoys educating and developing relationships with the clients at VCA Brentwood.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
