Dr. Costuma

Born and raised in Southern California, I have been in the animal care industry since the age of 16, starting out as a Kennel Attendant. After receiving my degree in 2002 from the University of California, Davis, I have been fortunate to know and help many great pets and their beloved owners. I've practiced veterinary medicine in Los Angeles County, Orange County, and now Riverside County. At the end of 2010 my wife Megan and I (along with our three cats: Miss Meow, Bully, and Simon) moved from Orange County to Murrieta where I became the proud owner of Ark Animal Hospital.

Welcoming your new puppy or kitten is never routine and is always a joy for me. Equally, I celebrate the bond between our older pets and their families who seem to always have great 'tails' to share.

I am also very thankful to my staff and those that have continued to support the hospital. The transition from Ark's previous owner, Dr. Susan Anderson, to myself could not have been any smoother or more successful without you.
