Dr. David Tentser
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine
Dr. David Tentser has always had a deep appreciation for nature, science, medicine, and animals, so becoming a vet felt like a natural choice for him. He’s been with the team since September 2014, after earning his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Oregon State. Throughout his career, he’s completed training in laser therapy and attended several CE meetings on a variety of veterinary health topics at local LA specialty clinics. He also received the ACVIM Student clinical Excellence Award.
Dr. Tentser has worked with animals in the U.S. and abroad; he spent time volunteering in Nicaragua, where he performed wellness and sterilization therapy for stray animals. He also did farm visits to help with livestock health.
With his years of experience in the veterinary field, Dr. Tentser believes the human-animal bond is a very important facet of life, and he feels that being a vet helps him to contribute to that bond. He loves providing the best possible care he can for pets while educating his clients.
When he’s not caring for pets at work, Dr. Tentser cares for his own pet: a dog named Lola (she’s the greatest). He also enjoys concerts and traveling, and spending time outdoors (backpacking, playing tennis, going to the beach, etc.). In fact, he recently hiked the Wonderland Trail in Washington, where he backpacked for 11 days, hiked 93 miles, and gained and lost a total of 22,000 feet in elevation.
