Dr. Tracy Stein was born in Los Angeles and grew up in San Diego, moving to Davis in 1995.  The thought of becoming a veterinarian has been top of mind since she was 8 years old.  She remembers having a parent come to her classroom to discuss what a veterinarian did and vividly remember the abdominal radiographs that showed a dog had eaten a rock.   At that young age, she knew she wanted to be able to help animals and found her passion and drive to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.

Originally, Dr. Stein joined Pet Emergency Center as a technician in 2000 and rejoined the practice in 2009 as an Associate Veterinarian, with a temporary relocation to Minnesota (2011-2014) to support her husband through a veterinary surgical residency.   Dr. Stein’s true passion is emergency medicine, and working with such a strong team to provide exceptional care for the pets that visit the hospital.
