Born and raised in Vancouver, Dr. Chris Tom was educated at the University of British Columbia and the University of the Philippines. Chris has enjoyed practicing small animal medicine since 2002 in both Vancouver and Victoria. Over the years he has developed a particular interest in dermatology and surgery. His strategy to continually build on his knowledge by exploring new treatment options has led him to being our go-to-vet when it comes to using the TTA surgery technique for repairing cranial cruciate ligaments in dogs’ knees. He is certified in PennHip testing and is also trained to perform TPLO surgeries. Chris enjoys helping people understand the underlying issues at play in the care of their pets and is always happy to answer questions. Outside the clinic, although there was a time when Chris could usually be found on his surfboard or playing football at one of the local parks, his 2 beautiful daughters take his time and attention these days.
