Dr. Maureen Rankin

Dr. Maureen (Mo) Rankin obtained her veterinary degree from The Ohio State University in May 2014. She grew up in California and Ohio, and practiced large and small animal medicine in Pennsylvania before relocating back to southern California with her two dogs, Trooper and Bruno. Her granddad, a retired veterinarian, inspired her to become a vet at a very young age, and she has enjoyed working with all types of animals, including cows, horses, goats, pot bellied pigs, and the occasional hamster or guinea pig. Her special practice interests include ultrasonography and emergency medicine, and in her free time she likes camping, hiking, winter snow-sports, and exploring new places with Trooper and Bruno.
