Dr. Michael Whalen is a Thousand Oaks native, and is very excited to work in the community he grew up in! Dr. Whalen developed his love of animals at an early age, declaring he would become a veterinarian in 6th grade. He graduated with Bachelors of Science in both Biology and Business from UC San Diego, and earned his DVM from UC Davis. Dr. Whalen lives here in Thousand Oaks with his wife Lauren and their two pugs, Bugsy and Dolly. Apart from veterinary medicine, his passions include fitness, spending time with his friends and family, and all things sports – with a strong emphasis on the Dodgers and Lakers.
