San Diego Pet Hospital was established in 1942 by Dr. Frank McKinney. After his death in 1969, the hospital was acquired by veterinarian Dr. Griffith Clark, who was joined in 1971 by his son Dr. Michael Clark. Known affectionately as Dr. Griff and Dr. Mike, they were the first father-son team of veterinarians to graduate from UC Davis Veterinary School. They practiced together for many years prior to Dr. Griff’s retirement.
