Dr. Kyle Crowson grew up in Chico and Durham before traveling to many parts of the U.S. and Canada for work and schooling after graduating from Chico High. He is a proud Clemson University graduate (Go Tigers!) and joined Chico Animal Hospital after practicing outside of Seattle.

Dr. Crowson found his calling to veterinary medicine after volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary and working as a field technician on a number of wildlife research projects. These projects all gave vastly different insights into what veterinary medicine encompassed, and after seeing how profound an impact proper and compassionate medicine can make to an animal’s well-being and quality of life, he set his mind to becoming a veterinarian and to make a positive difference in the lives of our four-legged friends. His veterinary interests include: endocrinology, behavioral modification, preventative care and client education, dentistry, and soft tissue surgery.

Having an affinity for fly fishing, backpacking, and hiking, the move back home to northern California was inevitable, but returning to the charming community of Chico is an exciting opportunity to give back to the community that helped shape him. When not exploring the outdoors, Dr. Crowson is a voracious reader, an avid record collector, and he enjoys cooking.
