Jessica Fishman, DVM
Dr. Jessica Fishman was born and raised in Los Angeles. She was lucky enough to always know she wanted to be a veterinarian. All through her childhood her family referred to their household as the “Fishman Zoo” because of all the animals she rescued growing up. Dr. Fishman always had a desire to take care of all creatures. Even as a child she would rescue animals whether it was a bird that fell down the sewer drain, a toad from Topanga Canyon with a broken leg or a baby crow that fell from the chimney vent. Dr. Fishman considers herself lucky to have found a career that combines her love for animals and passion for medicine. Eventually having her own animal hospital was a lifelong dream that has come true with the opening of Larchmont Village Vet.
Dr. Fishman stayed local and remained in Southern California for her college and graduate education. She attended Occidental College while working at a small animal hospital in Los Feliz. Dr. Fishman attained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences. After veterinary school she enjoyed her time working at a private practice in West Hollywood. She was fortunate to gain extra experience working alongside an Internal Medicine Specialist, Surgeon, Dentist and Cardiologist. Dr. Fishman also started a company for in-home veterinary services and enjoyed seeing cats and dogs in their own environment. Her last career move before Larchmont Village Vet involved helping start up an animal hospital in Downtown Los Angeles. After leaving downtown Dr. Fishman decided she had finally gained enough experience and courage to start up her own practice. She is excited to finally have a location to call home where she can see all the wonderful clients and their pets that she has met over the years.
Dr. Fishman’s professional interests include preventative wellness care, acupuncture, dentistry, dermatology and geriatric care.
Dr. Fishman loves spending her free time with her husband, two daughters, and two dogs Baci and Jezabel. Caring for the pets of Larchmont Village and surrounding areas is a dream come true for Dr. Fishman.
