Dr. Weininger has been a part of the Banfield family since 2009, and feels lucky to thoroughly love her profession. She grew up in the Bay Area and started volunteering and working at shelters, veterinary offices and the Oakland Zoo. She earned her biological sciences degree at UC Santa Barbara and knew she wanted to dedicate herself to advocating for animal health, so she immediately started the road to a veterinary degree at UC Davis. Dr. Weininger fell in love with the region and ultimately started her professional life here. She has an amazing husband and feline child.
