Cecilia Kong, DVM


Dr. Kong was born and raised in the beautiful city of Melbourne, Australia where she completed her Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees at the University of Melbourne.

Growing up, she spent a lot of time playing the piano and doing rhythmic gymnastics, and one day hopes to achieve the final and highest qualification in music performance in piano – the Licentiate in Music. She has had rabbits, budgies, and chickens throughout her childhood but is still waiting for the day she adopts her very own dog.

After graduating from her veterinary degree, she moved from small, quiet Melbourne to San Francisco, California to complete a small animal rotating internship. She spent the year developing her veterinary skills, meeting lots of cuddly pitbulls (Australia doesn’t have any), exploring the city, trying different types of food, and picking up the American accent.

Dr. Kong is excited to be working as an emergency veterinarian at ACCESS and being a tourist in Los Angeles. In her spare time, she’ll be doing some hiking, finding new restaurants to eat at, saving up to go traveling around America, and keeping her eyes peeled for a dog to adopt.
