Jade Vets was founded by Los Angeles natives Drs. Christine Fabregas-Arnau, Noosha Kohan and Julio López, who recognized that without great teams, providing exceptional pet care isn’t possible. This is why we aren’t just focused on caring for our patients, but also caring for their people, our team members and communities.

Our Story

At a UCLA chemistry tutor session is where Drs. Christine Fabregas-Arnau and Julio López crossed paths, realizing they were both on their way to becoming veterinarians. Shortly after that run-in, they worked together at a specialty teaching hospital minutes from campus.

After graduating from veterinary school and spending a few years in practice, they realized they had a shared belief- a thriving veterinary practice not only cared for pets, but also their people and the community. Sharing in this belief was Dr. Noosha Kohan, also a UCLA grad, and together they formed Jade Vets.

A passion for teaching has made them mentors to students, educators to their teams and a resource to colleagues with challenging medical and surgical cases. Aside from veterinary medicine, their commitment to communities and conservation propels them to provide support to local and global organizations making a difference. In keeping with this commitment, Jade Vets awards scholarships to team members that allows them to travel worldwide to take part in conservation efforts.


Our Name

It has symbolic associations with healing, eternal life, compassion, emotional balance, being in harmony with nature and helping people reach their full potential & higher purpose.
