Jill Hoffman, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, University of California, Davis


As a little girl growing up in Fremont, my sister and I would spend hours and hours catching and taming the feral cats on our property and taking them next door to Fremont Animal Hospital to be spayed and neutered . I would watch the surgeries as a kid, and then when I was old enough I starting helping and worked for Fremont Animal Hospital throughout my childhood. My love of animals led me to study biology and zoology at Humboldt State University and then Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis. I graduated from UC Davis in 2002 and have practiced as a small animal veterinarian in San Jose, CA  prior to joining VCA Forestville in 2013.

My husband and I have missed the North Coast ever since our years spent in Humboldt. We are excited to be in Sonoma County where we can enjoy the outdoors with our two dogs, Doja, a yellow Labrador retriever, and Makana, a German Shepherd Dog. Some of our favorite activities are hiking, camping, and going to the river and the beach with our dogs. We also enjoy travel to far off places and meeting new people or lounging on tropical beaches.

I am excited to be a part of the wonderful team of animal lovers at Forestville Animal Hospital, and I look forward to many new adventures here.
