Glynn Echerd, DVM

Dr. Glynn Echerd, doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM), is a native Texan and graduated from Texas A&M University in 1986. He has been the owner of Los Altos Veterinary Clinic for over 20 years. His interests are internal medicine, endocrinology, anesthesia, dentistry and general surgery for cats and dogs. Dr Echerd lives near our veterinary clinic in Los Altos with his wife, Margaret. They have three crazy house cats and a white cockapoo. Together, Glynn and Margaret enjoy biking and hiking in the Santa Cruz mountains, traveling and cooking. Dr. Echerd is a past president of the Santa Clara Valley Veterinary Medical Association. A frustrated musician, Dr. Echerd claims he is just doing ‘this vet thing’ while he is waiting to get his ‘big break in rock and roll’.

Dr. Echerd is a wonderful Veterinarian and we are fortunate that he has cared for and nurtured our pets for over 20 years. Compassionate, caring and a great staff!
