Lianne Chu, DVM

Dr. Lianne Chu is our veterinarian and business owner. She graduated from the University of California Irvine with a Bachelors's degree in biology and the University of California Davis with a Degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. She has been providing veterinary care at Ark since the summer of 2008.
Her hobbies include ultra distance running, swimming, hiking, cooking, reading, and world travel. Dr. Chu has two daughters- one is getting her masters degree at Stanford and the other is a senior at Northern Arizona University. She happily shares her home with her mixed-breed running partner named Charlie Mae and two precious cats named Midas and Apollo. Starting in the fall of 2021, she became a volunteer puppy raiser for Canine Companions, a national non profit organization that raises and provides service dogs for adults, children and veterans with disabilities.

Being a veterinarian has enabled Dr Chu to not only help our beloved dogs and cats but in doing so she also is helping the humans attached to them. “It’s the most rewarding career I could ever ask for”, says Dr Chu.
