Jill Granite, DVM - Medical Director
Born and raised on the East Coast, Dr. Jill Granite obtained her BS at the University of Vermont, after which she spent several years working as a veterinary technician at a small animal practice. From there, she moved to California to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian. She attended Western University of Health Science, School of Veterinary Medicine, and graduated with her DVM in 2008. After practicing on both the East and West Coasts, Dr. Granite ultimately decided to plant her roots in South County and joined Dana Point Animal Hospital (formerly Golden Lantern Animal Hospital) as Medical Director in 2021.
Her passion has always been general practice and she enjoys building lasting relationships with clients and their pets. Dr. Granite’s primary interests are internal medicine and ultrasonography, although she feels strongly that preventative medicine and client education are equally important.
She takes pride in being able to serve the community in which her and her family live in. Dr. Granite resides in San Clemente with her husband, 4 children, a Golden Retriever, Gator, and rescue cat, Snoop. Their family enjoys spending time at the beach and the mountains and traveling whenever possible.
