Dr. Christian Croquenois
Dr. Christian Croquenois was born and raised in Paris, France. After four years of studies and a year of internship in the world’s first and most reputable veterinary school (Maison Alfort, founded in 1765 by Louis the XV) he enrolled in a two year immunology research program and obtained his PhD with honors, all while working in a small animal practice where he developed a special interest for cardiology and dermatology.
After 10 years of practice, he started his own practice in the southwest of France where his dedication to veterinary medicine helped him expand his area of expertise to horses–particularly gynecology and reproduction.
He moved to San Diego to follow a unique work opportunity where he obtained the necessary credentials to become a licensed DVM in California.
More recently, he worked in the San Fernando Valley where he was in charge of advanced surgeries. In 2020 he acquired Cahuenga Hospital where he has been practicing ever since. He is a lifelong equestrian and shares a passion for all equine-related disciplines, all while his fast-growing practice has continued to gain in reputation within the community.
