Dr. Molly Gleeson

Diplomate, American College of  Zoological Medicine

Dr. Molly Gleeson is a board certified specialist in Zoological Companion Animal Medicine. She graduated from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. From there she completed a small animal rotating internship in Mesa, Arizona and then an exotics specialty internship at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Houston, Texas. She completed her Zoological Companion Animal Medicine & Surgery Residency at UC Davis and became board certified with the American College of Zoological Medicine in 2019. After practicing for the last 4 years in Southern California, she has moved back to the bay to expand the available care for exotic pet patients and collaborate with veterinarians in the area. When not at work, Dr. Gleeson is often at home spending time with her two cats and two guinea pigs.

Our goal is to provide high level medicine and patient care for your furry, feathered, and scaled family members.  We see primary cases and will also work with your primary veterinarian to provide comprehensive care. This includes referral for advanced diagnostics, dental procedures, surgery, and ongoing hospitalization.  

As this service is new to PETS, we are still working to bring in all our equipment so please bear with us as there are certain cases/procedures we are not yet able to accommodate.

Currently we accept appointments for all small mammals, parrots, backyard poultry, and most reptiles and amphibians. This includes:
•    Rabbits
•    Guinea pigs
•    Chinchillas
•    Small rodents (hamsters, rats, mice, gerbils, degus)
•    Hedgehogs
•    Ferrets
•    Sugar gliders
•    All sizes of parrots
•    Songbirds
•    Chickens
•    Ducks, geese, swans
•    Pigeons, doves
•    Snakes
•    Turtles/tortoises
•    Lizards/geckos
•    Frogs
If your pet is not listed, please call to determine if we can accommodate you. Our ability to see aquatic species (fish, axolotls) will be increasing soon!

If you feel your pet is having an emergency, please call the emergency department to determine if and when your pet can be seen prior to filling out an online request. The emergency department can accommodate mammal patients when Dr. Gleeson is not onsite but can only see reptiles/birds on a limited basis.

We request owners of avian and reptile species call the Emergency Department prior to arriving or checking into the online system, to make sure that we can accommodate your pet.
