Veterinarian Overview

Dr. Ransom was raised around the unconditional love of animals. His mother adored animals of all kinds and the family cared for a variety of dogs, cats, goats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, and llamas. His childhood Boxer, Nessie, and Maine Coon cat, Tom, inspired Dr. Ransom to become a veterinarian and are now permanent features of the Alona Animal Hospital logo. Dr. Ransom graduated from Western University of Health Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009 and has worked with animals for more than twenty years. Inspired by his passion for shelter pets, he spent almost seven years at San Diego Humane Society where he saved thousands of animals lives, many of whom were victims of abuse and neglect, before transitioning to private practice. Dr. Ransom also spent time volunteering with World Vets, the Humane Society of the United States, Veterinary Medical Association, and Maui Humane Society. He has traveled to Nicaragua, Guatemala, Peru, Tijuana, North Dakota and Maui to provide free veterinary care where it?s needed most. When he?s not caring for animals, Dr. Ransom loves spending time with his wife and son, hiking with their three dogs, Gracie, Finn and Angel, and watching LA Galaxy and Tottenham Hotspur games.

We followed Dr. Ransom from where he is was working to his new practice at Alona. He spends all the time I could've asked for to explain things. I felt so comfortable and trust all my pets in his care. I would not go anywhere else. It's obvious how much he cares about animals.

I thought he was really great! He did a big mass removal on my older dog. So I decided to take her sister that I’ve been battling kidney disease since Nov. I took her Saturday for urine test I’m so worried sick! Said they would get the results back in a day since it was Saturday I waited until today wednesday! I called 2 xs said the results were in he would call when he had the time! It’s now 7:30pm went home without even giving me the results!! So is it bad news and didn’t want to tell me or just not that important to him! It’s all about the money to them to me she is my child as I have no human kids! I can’t stop crying! I will not call them back! I guess I will have to take her somewhere else and wait longer! Oh why it was so important to me to find out is she has blood in her urine and a horrible bad smell! The sad part is I thought I had found someone who really cared for her
