VCA Wilshire Animal Hospital

Michelle Jack, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Ohio State University


Dr. Michelle Jack grew up surrounded by pets, from cats and birds to lizards and mice. As a result, she knew from a young age she wanted to be a veterinarian. She completed her undergraduate training at Mount Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts. She then obtained her degree in veterinary medicine from Ohio State University and completed an internship in avian and exotic medicine and surgery the following year.

Once her training was completed, Dr. Jack moved back to her home state of California and began working at VCA Wilshire Animal Hospital. In her seven years at VCA Wilshire, it has been her great pleasure to serve a large patient base, where all species are represented.

She attends various veterinary conferences to stay on top of all medical advances. In addition to canine and feline conferences, she routinely attends conferences in avian, small mammal (rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, rodents) and reptile medicine. Dr. Jack has also taken many specialty courses such as fish anesthesia and surgery, rigid endoscopy, bird fracture repair, rabbit and rodent dentistry, emergency medicine of exotics and several ultrasound labs in cats, dogs, ferrets and rabbits.

Dr. Jack is currently pursuing board certification in Exotic Companion Animal Practice.

She resides in Venice and enjoys spending time with her dog, Maggie and three cats, one of which has only three legs (don't tell him though, he has no idea!). She also enjoys surfing, rollerblading and riding her motorcycle.
