Dr. Jill Christofferson has worked as a veterinarian in Contra Costa County since graduating from UC Davis Veterinary School in 1993. Dr. Christofferson has always enjoyed getting to know pets and their families as they grow, providing quality, compassionate care at every stage. Walnut Creek Veterinary Hospital is built on this foundation, and a desire to get back to the days where your veterinarian was there for you & your animal family, listened to you without rushing to the next appointment, grieved with you when it was time to say goodbye, and when you felt like your veterinarian was part of your family. Her dream came to fruition with the opening of Walnut Creek Veterinary Hospital in September of 2014.

In the age where veterinary practices are being bought by large companies, Jill is proud to be an independent business owner. She and her team offer the community both outstanding medical care for pets, as well as thoughtful customer service for those who care for them.

At Walnut Creek Veterinary Hospital, we proudly stand as a female-owned and operated establishment, distinguished by our unwavering commitment to exceptional customer service, compassionate care, and a deep sense of empathy for both our patients and clients. As a privately owned veterinary hospital, we prioritize personalized attention and a nurturing environment for pets and their families. Our dedicated team of professionals, led by passionate women in the field, combines expertise with genuine understanding to create a unique experience focused on the well-being of your beloved pets. With a cumulative commitment to empathy, we strive to build lasting relationships, providing not only veterinary care but also a supportive community for pet owners who entrust us with the health and happiness of their cherished companions.
