VCA SFVS is pleased to announce that Winnie Ybarra, DVM, DACVIM, has joined our internal medicine department. Her first day at our hospital is tomorrow, July 2. We are very happy to have her on the team!
Here’s a little more about our newest veterinarian: Dr. Winnie Low Ybarra was born in Rangoon, Burma, and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. She worked as a veterinary technician prior to obtaining her veterinary degree from the University of California, Davis in 2008, and went on to complete a medical and surgical internship at North Carolina State University. Dr. Ybarra moved back to the Bay Area and worked as a general practitioner, emergency veterinarian and shelter veterinarian. She then completed an internal medicine residency at UC Davis in 2013.
Dr. Ybarra’s professional interests include immune-mediated, endocrine, renal, urinary and respiratory disorders, as well as endoscopic procedures and laparoscopy. Dr. Ybarra has always been an advocate for animal welfare and rescue. She shares her home with three four-legged dogs, one three-legged dog, and several cats that rule the household (all rescues). In her free time, she enjoys traveling, hiking and trying out new restaurants. She speaks fluent Burmese.
