Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

I’m a Chicago native and University of Michigan alumnus. After graduating from veterinary school at the University of Illinois, I moved to Moorpark in 1981 and in 1990 opened Moorpark Veterinary Hospital. In addition to helping pets and their people, I assist various civic, professional and charitable organizations. I’m particularly honored to have been president of the California Veterinary Medical Association and the Association for Veterinary Family Practice. When not working, I enjoy being with my wife and daughters. Other interests include exercise, travel, photography and storm chasing in “Tornado Alley.” An interesting fact about me that would surprise everyone… I am an avid storm chaser.  Some of my photos can be seen at alschwartz.net I’m inspired by… The love pet parents have for their four legged family. My favorite quote is… “They live in the deeds done, in the lives they lived, and in the lessons left behind.”
