As an independently owned internal medicine and surgery practice, Pasadena Veterinary Specialists can solely focus on the well-being of our patients and those who love them. Yes, we’re highly trained and talented specialists, but we take a much broader approach to caring for animals.
We’re a hands-on team, and regularly gain insight into new therapeutic options by participating in clinical research and attending continuing education related to small animal medicine and surgery.
And, we are inspired daily by the patients we care for, the people who give them a home, our staff who go out of their way to provide even the smallest kindness, the general practice veterinarians who share a commitment to extraordinary patient care, and finally, our entire community who supports our cause through the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation.
Dr. Jocelyn Mott graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1992. After graduation, she completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Oklahoma State University and then a small animal internal medicine residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Mott is board certified by the ACVIM in small animal internal medicine.
With a broad range of experience, Dr. Mott has worked in small animal referral practices in Massachussetts, Texas and Florida, and has performed clinical research in veterinary nutrition. She has authored several publications and book chapters in veterinary medicine and is an international speaker in her field of expertise.
Although Dr. Mott enjoys all aspects of internal medicine, she especially enjoys gastroenterology, nutrition and endocrinology. She volunteers with non profits to promote pet health and well being and is Past-President of the ACVIM Foundation to help further animal healthcare and specialty medicine. When Dr. Mott is away from work, she enjoys spending time with her husband Pete, a veterinary clinical pathologist, and her dogs, horseback riding, and synchronized swimming.
