  • Dr.
    Calvin G. Lum,
    D.V.M.

    Dr. Calvin G. Lum, a San Francisco native, was awarded the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the University of California at Davis in 1987. As a young child, I developed a strong curiosity and love for animals. My growing interests in teaching, biology, and physiology led me on a natural course to a career in veterinary medicine.

Testimonials

  • "“Dr. Lum is a terrific vet… took more time and care, and was more up-to-date on recent developments and research on kitty illnesses and treatments. Having him come to our home was a great convenience… it saved us a 100-mile round trip to our former South Bay vet and a lot of stress on our 3 kitties. Very highly recommended.”"
    CatFolks SF
  • "What a wonderful experience to stay home with your beloved, be present for her entire exam and treatment, and have a relaxed conversation with a very knowledgeable vet. Doctor Lum was great with us. He and my dog bonded. Dr Lum clearly understands and enjoys pets and people. He articulated what he was doing throughout our well pet check up. He examined in a non intrusive way. He was thoughtful of my pet’s comfort. He was thoughtful in his manner with me. He competently examined and advised."
