VCA Pacific Petcare Animal Hospital

Geoff Ball, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine


Dr. Ball has always loved working with animals. At 15, he started his first job at an animal hospital outside of Chicago, while also volunteering at a shelter, working with feral cats. After graduating from St. George's University in 2005, Dr. Ball did clinical studies at the University of Illinois, and then went back to St. George's to work with students at the Teaching Hospital, until 2007. As a practicing veterinarian, he continued to volunteer at shelters, while also taking on a Visiting Professor position in clinical skills at his Alma Mater. Geoff specializes in dentistry and has developed lectures on the subjects, as well as laboratory criteria on dentistry for veterinary students. We are extremely happy to have Dr. Ball join our team as he is very friendly, patients like him, and he knows his medicine.  When not at VCA Pacific Petcare, he likes to spend time with his three dogs at the beach, hiking, running, playing music and learning how to surf. Dr. Ball is always available to answer questions and meet your furry friends when he is here. Stop in and meet Dr. Ball. Don't forget your precious kitty or doggy.
