VCA El Rancho Animal Hospital

Pamela Giam, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Kansas State University


Dr. Pamela Giam was born and raised in Singapore in a home that rescued orphaned wildlife and pets. Her parents had a huge influence in her love for animals and her career pursuit in medicine.

After graduating from high school in Singapore, Dr. Giam had the opportunity to explore her academic and life endeavors in Southern California. She began her tertiary education at the University of Southern California, but graduated with a Bachelors in Science in Biology with an emphasis in Neurology, Physiology and Behavior from the University of California at Davis. Soon after, she trekked across the country to Kansas State University where she had a blast and received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2007.

Dr. Giam enjoys the everyday challenges that veterinary medicine brings, as well as interacting with her clients and their family pets. In her spare time, Dr. Giam loves travelling the world and spending time outdoors doing anything athletic with her wonderful husband-to-be, and their neurotic Tijuana-special dog, Tia.
