Dr Abrams


Dr. Rebecca Abrams grew up in northern California and received her bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University. While there, she earned honors in Environmental Sciences for her senior thesis about invasive plants in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. She also studied Spanish and earned a varsity letter in cross-country running yet found time to volunteer at a small animal veterinary hospital. She was hired as a veterinary assistant where her interest in veterinary medicine grew, confirming her decision to apply to veterinary school.  She realized that becoming a veterinarian would allow her to combine her love of animals with her interest in medicine.

She was awarded her DVM from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010 and was inducted into the Phi Zeta honor Society for her academic achievements. Dr. Abrams moved to the Bay Area to complete an internship at East Bay Veterinary Specialists and Emergency and has been practicing in the area ever since. Dr. Abrams has a passion for general practice and forming bonds with her clients and patients, and she has a special interest in geriatric care and internal medicine.  

Outside of work, Dr. Abrams enjoys playing tennis, gardening, snowboarding, and spending time with her husband, two children, and labradoodle Gus, her constant companion and friend.
