A native Californian (with the exception of the four years she lived in Indiana
to get her medical doctorate at Purdue University), Dr. Evelyn Vega has been practicing
veterinary medicine in the Santa Clarita Valley since July 2000.
In addition to Purdue, Dr. Vega has also attended Loyola Marymount University and
Cal State Los Angeles, where she completed her Masters in Biology.
Prior to starting her own practice, Dr. Vega has worked with many animal hospitals
in the area, including several years at VIP Veterinary.
She has also run her own
in-home mobile veterinary service (Happy Pets Mobile Veterinary), performing veterinary
house calls from Santa Clarita to Palmdale for over five years.
In a reader's poll, Santa Clarita Living Magazine named
Dr. Vega Best Veterinarian.
She is a past member of the local Soroptimist charity group and a member of N.R.G.
(Network Referral Group of Santa Clarita) for the last 15 years. She is also a member
of various veterinary organizations.
Dr. Vega lives in Saugus with her husband John, their two dogs
Peanut Butter and Coco Butter and their cat Madame Leota.
