Dr. Michele Kim, DVM

Dr. Michele Kim, DVM, left this world unexpectedly in August of 2021. Dr. Kim’s quiet brilliance and endless compassion were her marks of excellence.

“Dr. Kim’s gentle kindness, knowledge, and incredible talent existed through all of the animals that she helped, all the families she made more complete through helping their beloved companions, her colleagues that she learned from and taught and inspired, and her friends and family who she shared her life with,” said Dr. Anne Martin. “I hold my cat close and remember how Dr. Kim cared for her when she was very sick—Dr. Kim lives on in her. And she amputated the injured toes of my rabbit, Trevor—Dr. Kim lives on in him. And with each of us who she taught and inspired—Dr. Kim lives on through us. May we continue to see her kindness, knowledge, and talent reflected back to us everywhere we look, and may it be a comfort that she will always be with us.”

In her loving memory, contributions to “The Linus Memorial Fund” are welcome at Chabot Veterinary Clinic to support community animal rescue efforts. Contributions may be sent to:

She had a wonderful generosity of spirit and was a true healer.

I’m sure she has stopped off at The Rainbow Bridge to check on our bunnies and other pets for us!
