Dr. Limburg joined our team of talented doctors in 1992 after graduating from U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. She enjoys rabbit care and medicine, along with her love of all things canine and feline.
Dr. Limburg is passionate about helping pets and their people live their best life. As a young girl, she always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian and is happy to have had her dream come true.
Originally from San Jose, CA she now resides in Monrovia with her husband Mark and their two children, Alicia & Nick. The furry additions to their happy family include 2 young, handsome cats "Ray" & "Eli" who were adopted after being abandoned when they were tiny kittens. There are also 3 wonderful dogs who have all found their way into the family as strays. "Olive", "Clifford" and "Sophie" are each small and cute with personalities to match. "Danny" is a robust Guinea Pig who makes the family laugh.
Dr. Limburg has many interests outside of veterinary medicine which include volunteering at her children's school, and being creative with food, crafts, and gardening. She also likes to bring fun into the hospital and organizes our annual staff Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Please stop by the last 2 weeks of October to view the amazing creations and to vote for your favorite pumpkin!
She is looking forward to resuming pet assisted therapy again when her children have left the nest.
