Dr. Jason Balara, DVM, DACVS

Dr. Jason Balara is a Massachusetts native who received his veterinary schooling and training right in his home state: he attended veterinary school at Tufts University, completed an internship at Angell Animal Medical Center, and finished his residency at both institutions between 2005-2008. Upon the completion of his residency, Dr. Balara went “in search of better weather”, where he spent several years working in the Carolinas and found his fiancée. They then moved to Houston, TX where Dr. Balara spent three years working for Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists; at the end of his tenure, they both heard sunny Southern California calling and promptly made their way west.

Dr. Balara believes in constantly improving the state of veterinary medicine, and therefore passes on his wisdom by teaching students, interns, and residents alike. Dr. Balara is also passionate about minimally invasive surgery and joint replacement.

When he isn’t at ASG helping our Surgery patients, Dr. Balara enjoys doing home improvement projects, running, and playing soccer. He currently resides in Woodland Hills with his wife and two dogs – a German Shorthaired Pointer named Deacon and a French Bulldog named Reese.
