Dr. Liz Hanson was born and raised in Southern California. After completing a B.S. degree at the University of California at Davis, she attended Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation in 1995, she moved back to Southern California and has enjoyed practicing small animal veterinary medicine in Orange County ever since. Her areas of interest include internal medicine, dermatology, soft tissue surgery, and wellness programs. The bond that is shared between a pet and its owner is what inspired Dr. Hanson to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. “One of the best parts of my job is not only when a patient is cured, but also when I see the joy an owner has when their pet is back to health!” Dr. Hanson has two miniature long-haired Dachshunds, “Peanut” and “Butter”, two leopard geckos, African cichlids, and a cat named “Martini.” When Dr. Hanson is not practicing Veterinary Medicine she and her husband enjoy watching their four sons compete in swimming and golf. She also loves to cook, read, and most of all, travel.
