The History of Irving Pet Hospital


Irving Pet Hospital, originally called Irving Street Veterinary Hospital, was built in 1964 by Dr. Roger Burr. When he retired in 1989, Dr. Dave Penny took over and modernized the facility with extensive remodeling. Dr. Penny’s interests led him elsewhere, and the hospital was acquired in 2007 by Dr. Joe Fong, who changed the name to the simpler Irving Pet Hospital. Being one of only a handful of native San Francisco residents practicing veterinary medicine in the city, Dr. Fong has a special connection with this city and its residents. As such, he plans to practice here far into the future with a focus on continuing and expanding Irving Pet Hospital’s established tradition of excellence.
