Our History


Dr. Bjork began his veterinary career working for Dr. George Muller at Muller Veterinary Hospital in Walnut Creek. Nine years later with the support of his wife, Kim, Dr. Bjork opened his own practice. Geary Veterinary Hospital opened it’s doors in early January 1979.

Dr. Bjork, the sole veterinarian, Kim and two other employees made up the entire staff. Our staff has grown to four veterinarians and a staff of ten, dedicated to working together with each client for the health and well being of every pet who comes in the door. It is mostly through word of mouth and client recommendations that Geary Veterinary Hospital continues to grow and flourish. Many clients have trusted us to care for their pets for over 30 years and we are now seeing their children’s and grandchildren’s pets as well.

Geary Veterinary Hospital provides high quality medical care, surgery, dentistry, radiology and laboratory diagnostics. We also have an excellent working relationship with many specialists in the area. Our staff is known for their compassion, friendliness, knowledge and professionalism. After all, we have our own furry friends that live with us and we know how much we love and want the best care for them. We do our best to offer each client the same quality care.

Geary Veterinary Hospital is a proud supporter of Golden State Greyhound Adoption. We provide veterinary care for many of the foster families who adopt these wonderful canines. In addition, Geary Veterinary Hospital is a supporter of ARF (Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation), Contra Costa Animal Services and the Contra Costa SPCA. For new kittens and puppies adopted from these groups, we offer a free initial exam.

The combination of a compassionate and dedicated staff that provide quality medical care to each pet and listening to each pet owner has proved to be successful for over three decades. All of us at Geary Veterinary Hospital look forward to continuing to serve our community far into the future.
