Stephen Hodgeson, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Hodgeson has been practicing veterinary medicine since 2008. During that time he worked in a high-volume general practice under two more experienced veterinarians which allowed him to gain valuable experience in general medicine and surgery. Dr. Hodgeson also opened a house call practice to serve the Inland Empire helping families and their pets in the comfort of their own homes. Additionally, Dr. Hodgeson provided relief services to many different practices in the Inland Empire, which allowed exposure to a diverse number of practice philosophies and different medical practice techniques.

Dr. Hodgeson is excited about hospital ownership and feels that with the partnership of Dr. Boshoven as well as the commitments from support team personnel, we will provide top-quality care to you and your pet family members.

Tyler Kelleher DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Kelleher was born in San Diego, CA. He spent most of his childhood growing up across the bridge from downtown San Diego in Coronado, CA. He knew he wanted to be a veterinarian from an early age and decided to pursue it as a career, with his uncle (also a veterinarian) encouraging and mentoring him along the way.

Dr. Kelleher graduated from the University of California, Davis with a B.S. in Animal Science, and then went on to attend veterinary school at Cornell University in upstate New York, after which he returned to his home state of California to begin his career as a veterinarian. He spent a few years practicing in the Chico, CA area while working on both large and small animals, until he decided to move back to Southern Californa and joined The Pets Place Animal Hospital in order to be closer to his family.

Dr. Kelleher enjoys seeing a variety of cases, with particular interests in radiology, cardiology and surgery. He is excited to meet you and genuinely looks forward to developing a treatment plan that provides your beloved pet with the best care possible.
In his time off, Dr. Kelleher enjoys spending time with his wife, being involved with the church, spending time in the great outdoors, playing softball, playing bass guitar, and playing some video games (when time permits).
