With more than a dozen animal lovers on our veterinary team, including two veterinarians, Anza Animal Clinic takes great pride in providing you and your pets with the best experience.

Our very own Dr. Stephen Watase is an area resident who received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine with High Honors from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1985. After receiving his DVM from UC Davis he completed an Internship in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.  He then went on to purchase this very clinic from Dr. Michael Gordon in 1993, and has been proudly running it ever since.

Our other veterinarian, Dr. Melanie Spadaro-Goldstein, grew up right here in Westlake Village. Upon receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Molecular Environmental Biology in 2010 from UC Berkeley, she completed her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2014.
