Biography

Dr. Chretin, head of oncology at VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital, obtained his doctorate of veterinary medicine in 1994 from Colorado State University. He completed a small animal internship at North Carolina State University and then went on to receive board certification in the specialty of medical oncology after a three year residency at Tufts University. He has been a proud member of our staff since 2002.

Dr. Chretin’s four core principles are educating owners, providing progressive cancer care, advancing veterinary oncology and improving the quality of life for all animals. Dr. Chretin stresses client education foremost and has the unique first-hand experience of treating two of his own dogs for cancer. Dr. Chretin is an active participant in clinical studies and co-authored numerous publications during his tenure with us. In July 2010 he established our bone marrow transplant program for dogs with lymphoma. He presently oversees both medical and radiation oncology and is available for consultation Monday through Thursdays.
