Dr. Knox grew up in the San Fernando Valley with her mom, brother, and the family dogs. After completing her undergraduate degree in Zoology, she stayed at UC Davis for her veterinary degree, then spent another year there completing her Master’s degree in preventative medicine. She worked part-time for a small animal practice while getting her Master’s degree, and loved private practice so much that she’s still doing it to this day!
Dr. Knox says her favorite days are those filled with a variety of cases—she likes the way it keeps things interesting and challenging. Her special interest is in exotic species, including rabbits, pocket pets and birds. She also loves interacting with people and appreciating the unique bonds they have with their pets.
At home, Dr. Knox lives with two pets of her own: Fiona, a labrador that Dr. Knox rescued at the clinic during her first year here, and Bogart, a 20-plus year-old Senegal parrot she hand-raised from 6 weeks of age. When she’s not spending time with her pets, Dr. Knox enjoys playing tennis, bicycling, skiing, hiking, and scuba diving. She’s also an avid traveler, and has visited Europe, Australia/New Zealand, Africa, South America and many Caribbean islands to date.
