Dr. Susan Choy, DVM

While growing up in San Franciso, California, Dr. Susan Choy knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian some day.  She graduated from UC Davis with a B.S. degree in Avian Sciences in 1979 and with her DVM degree in 1986.  During her collegiate years she was introduced to companion birds and worked as an assistant breeder at Sonoma World of Birds.  Here she learned much about the biology and behavior of many species of exotic birds.

After leaving UC Davis, Dr. Choy worked with Dr. Brian Speer in Oakley, California, who mentored her in the practice of avian veterinary medicine.  In 1987, she moved to Los Osos and became the primary veterinarian at Bear Valley Animal Clinic, treating dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, pocket pets and assorted wildlife.  Dr. Choy has been active in the community, providing services for Pacific Wildlife, cat rescue organizations, and has served on the Board of Directors for Woods Humane Society and the Mid Coast Veterinary Association.  Her greatest work reward is the relationships she has formed with her clients and pets.

She currently juggles work and raising her family with husband/veterinarian Dr. Richard Knighton and their three very active children and numerous pets.  When not at work, Dr. Choy enjoys attending her children’s sporting events, hiking with their dogs, tending to the chickens and the garden, practicing yoga, camping, kayaking and other outdoor activities.

Living from a place of joy that is truly heartfelt, practicing gratitude, compassion, generosity and acceptance is how she maintains balance in her busy life.

Client Testimonial

I will always be grateful to Dr. Choy and her caring staff for saving the life of my beloved beagle, Hero. Hero was critically ill with pancreatitis; Dr. Choy quickly diagnosed and treated Hero, as well as arranging for Hero's care during evening hours. She was candid and encouraging. She monitored Hero's recovery with meticulous care. The Cohen family thanks you, Dr. Choy!
