About Us

Thank you for making us a preferred Santa Barbara Veterinary Hospital.

Pet care is our top priority. Here’s what sets us apart and makes us a trusted veterinary care provider in Santa Barbara.

Dr. Caitlin Kelly

Dr. Caitlin Kelly

Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Kelly graduated from the undergraduate integrative biology department at the University of California at Berkeley (Go Bears!) and from the veterinary doctorate program at Oregon State University. Dr. Kelly had the drive and desire to become a veterinarian since she was a child, but the dream was cemented while volunteering at the humane society and working at a pet emergency clinic during undergrad.

Dr. Kelly, formerly of White’s Pet Hospital, has been practicing in the Santa Barbara area since 2014. In 2019, Dr. Kelly became a Goleta veterinarian with the purchase of The Goodland Pet Hospital – La Concepcion. Dr. Kelly has special medical interests in dentistry, surgery, and preventive care medicine of dogs and cats. She enjoys collaborative medicine and working together in a team approach to get the best medical care for our patients. She is best known for her warm and thorough client communication and her love of golden retrievers.

Outside of the veterinary practice, Dr. Kelly places the utmost importance on family life. She believes that people and loved ones (including fur babies) are what life is all about! You will see this kindness and compassion when you meet her with how she treats your fur family. She spends her time at home on the family ranch with husband, young child, and the grandparents, at the beach with the dogs, or snuggling her ragdoll feline on the couch. She enjoys photography and being active in many outdoor activities: skiing, hiking, kayaking, camping, or exploring new places. She is always involved in some DIY project and working on learning something new.

Dr. Peter Mangravite

Dr. Mangravite is a wonderful veterinarian with many years of experience.  He is very well established in the Santa Barbara area.  He has been practicing veterinary medicine since 1982.  He spent many years as a boarded general practicing veterinarian under the AVBP.  Dr. Mangravite has a wealth of knowledge and very much enjoys passing on his knowledge to our clients.  He kindly offers his veterinary services on Fridays.  Dr. Mangravite is very professional, respectful, and will offer your pet excellent care. 

Outside of the office, Dr. Mangravite is involved in our community with search and rescue.  We are very fortunate to have Dr. Mangravite as part of the team.

Michael Kelly

Practice Manager

Michael Kelly is a southern California native. He spent his early years in San Diego very active in the sailing community and to this day maintains an active membership with the San Diego Yacht Club. He went to university on the central coast attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Michael gained valuable experience in customer service, human resources, and management while working at the Hilton in Corvallis, Oregon. Michael’s aspirations are to create a hotel welcome in the veterinary clinic and lead the team to the Hilton / Ritz Carlton level of customer service.

When not at work, Michael can be seen riding his mountain bike all over the Santa Barbara hills or visiting the Moxi and Santa Barbara zoo with his family. Family life is very important to Michael; in his words being a dad is “the best thing ever.” He has a special love for golden retrievers but has hopes of one day being a doggy dad to a Newfoundland or a German short-haired pointer.
