La Jolla Veterinary Hospital welcomes Carrie Bone, DVM


“We are overjoyed to have such an extraordinary veterinarian as Dr. Carrie Bone join our team!” said La Jolla Veterinary Hospital (LJVH) manager Stephanie Coolidge. “Not only is Dr. Bone a seasoned and talented doctor of veterinary medicine, but she has local ties to both the La Jolla community and specifically, La Jolla Veterinary Hospital. We could not ask for a better addition to our team, really.”

Dr. Bone and LJVH owner, Julie Breher, DVM, attended The Bishop’s School together. Dr. Breher was Dr. Bone’s student assistant field hockey coach at Bishop’s and they are having a blast sharing memories with the staff and planning their future in La Jolla.

“La Jolla Veterinary Hospital is growing and we are enjoying the success,” Dr. Breher said. “Due to the demand and our extended business hours, we needed another veterinarian and Dr. Bone has found her forever-home here. We could not be happier to have a staff member who loves this community as much as we all do.”

After Bishop’s, both Dr. Breher and Dr. Bone went on to graduate from the University of California at Davis with their Doctorates in Veterinary Medicine; Dr. Bone in 2004, and Dr. Breher in 1997.

Dr. Bone prides herself on keeping up with the latest theories and techniques in her field and particularly enjoys researching difficult and challenging cases.

She said consistent wellness testing and early detection can help manage disease before pets get sick. She is committed to providing her clients with excellent care and that begins with taking the time to thoroughly discuss all available options and then tailoring a pet’s care to the individual animal.

These priorities are shared with all of the doctors and staff at La Jolla Veterinary Hospital and this is one of the many reasons, Dr. Bone says, she is here to stay. “I have found my match. All of the veterinarians here practice very similar medicine and we support one another in a way that increases the level of medical care for our patients. Along with the best veterinary care possible, there is an emphasis on hospitality that is unprecedented.”

Dr. Bone shares her home in North County with her husband, daughter, and terrier-mutt named “Larry Bird.” Her time away from work is spent hanging out with her family, enjoying the San Diego waves, and trying to catch as many live music shows as possible.

“There is more to me being here than filling a role as an associate veterinarian. This is my forever-home and I want to be a prominent member of this wonderful community. It’s good to be back!”
