Kelly Palm DVM
Dr. Kelly Palm is a Northern California native. She grew up in Woodland, California and is the daughter of a pediatrician and a nurse. Medicine was always discussed at the dinner table. She knew she wanted to be a veterinarian since she was in the second grade and informed her mother she would attend UC Davis so she could come home for lunch. Kelly Palm received her BS in biology from UC Davis in 1986 and her DVM from UC Davis in 1990. Because of her special interest in the human - animal bond, during veterinary school she co-founded The Pet Loss Support Hotline. She served as president of the human animal bond club and started a local pet therapy program while attending veterinary school. She currently resides with her husband Jim and two sons Derek and David. The four Palms share their five acres with countless four legged furry friends who include three rescue dogs, four rescue cats, nine sheep, one llama, one pony, two goats and a turtle. Her hobbies include gardening, photography, baseball, walking, all genres of music, and is an avid SF Giants fan and Golden State Warrior fan. Her favorite player is Buster Posey. Together with her son Derek, as part of his senior project, she initiated an animal assisted therapy program in Vacaville with volunteers from the SPCA of Solano County. She works full time at Cal West Pet Hospital in Fairfield and is the Shelter Veterinarian for the SPCA of Solano County. Helping people and their pets is her passion.
