Meet Our Staff
A Southern California resident and lifelong tortoise owner, Dr. Naito received her Bachelor and DVM Degrees from the University of California, Davis. She graduated in 1981 and completed an internship at Auburn in Alabama prior to founding Huntington Pet-Vet in 1985. The clinic moved to its current location on Beach Boulevard in 2001.
Dr. Benington received her veterinary degree from the University of Melbourne, Australia, in 2005. She then completed her ECFVG in the United States and has been a part of Huntington Pet-Vet since 2006.
After practicing veterinary medicine in Minnesota for 20 years at his own small animal practice in Golden Valley, Dr. Munson joined our veterinary clinic in 2008, after he and his wife moved back to California. Dr. Munson was raised in Alhambra, California, and enjoys the many unique challenges our practice affords him, along with those from his five children, two dogs, and three cats at home. In his spare time, Dr. Munson paints and plays racquetball and golf.
At our veterinary practice, full payment is required at the time services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept MasterCard®, Visa®, Discover®, American Express®, cash, personal checks, debit cards, and CareCredit®.
Scheduled appointments are preferred, though we do accept walk-ins. Emergency cases always receive top priority at our animal hospital. We'll be glad to assist you with scheduling your appointment; just email or call us at (714) 969-0211.
Leash & Carrier
For the protection of our patients and clients, we require that all dogs be on a leash or in a carrier and properly controlled throughout the entirety of their visit. We recommend that all cats be confined to a carrier, not on a leash or in a towel.
