Associate Veterinarians

Dr. Kristin Trott

Dr. Trott has been with Sunset since June 2013 as an Associate Veterinarian. She started out in the veterinary industry as a veterinary assistant at the age of 13! She graduated with Bachelors in Integrative Biology from U.C. Berkley in 2004, obtained a PhD in Immunology from UC Davis in 2012 and in 2013 she graduated from U.C. Davis Veterinary School with her doctorate (DVM). 

Dr. Trott works closely with our staff of doctors to deliver the most up-to-date medicine to our patients. Her special areas of interest in the veterinary field are Internal Medicine, Pathology (cytology and histology) and infectious diseases. If you have any specific questions about diseases or their processes, Dr. Trott is the person to see!

She spends her free time gardening native plants and vegetables. She grows all of these great veggies for her family; her husband Mike, her 5 year old daughter Sylvia and the newest addition Noah who is only 5 months old. The rest of her family are the furry and feathered ones; 2 very sweet pit bulls Sadie and Boris; 3 laid back cats – Scout, Algae and Bernie; and 2 pampered chickens Rosie and Poppy.

Dr. Trott’s favorite aspect of veterinary medicine is promoting the human-animal bond through practicing a high standard of medicine! She enjoys the challenge of working up difficult cases and the reward of watching the pet leave the hospital happy and healthy!

Dr. Lea Bové

Dr. Bové has been with us since May 2014, as a part time associate veterinarian. She comes to us with 30 years of experience in the veterinary industry! Her experience is in small animal medicine, surgery, spay and neuter, shelter veterinarian for Petaluma Animal Shelter and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and Acupuncture. She obtained her BS, at Cornell University and her MS and DVM, at Louisiana State University and has received a certification in veterinary acupuncture (CVA) from Chi Institute. She is on the board for Forgotten Felines and has dedicated a great deal of her time to decrease the number of unwanted animals through spaying and neutering!

Dr. Bové enjoys spending time riding her horse Lingot, more specifically 3 day eventing! She loves to go on walks and hikes with her canine companions, Marcello an Australian Shepherd and Buck, a Chihuahua (that was rescued from the Petaluma Shelter).  When Dr. Bové is not reading a good book, she loves to go biking on her road bike!

Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is doing surgery, because it is an immediate rewarding feeling to be able to restore an animal back to their original healthy and vibrant state! She also loves to watch the successes of integrating Eastern and Western medicine to yield a better outcome for patient care and client preferences.  

Dr. Brandon Cohen

Dr. Brandon Cohen has been with Sunset Animal Hospital since July 2016. Even though he is a new veterinarian, he has 3 years under his belt as a veterinary technician. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Minor in Chemistry at Cal State Hayward (now Cal State East Bay). Dr. Cohen received his BVMS (Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery) from Glasgow University in Scotland. In addition to his education, he has done several internships in the UK, United States, Thailand and Mexico, which in turn, gave him a broad range of experiences with veterinary medicine in different cultures. He continues to develop his special interests in Exotic medicine, Marine Mammal medicine and Emergency and Critical Care medicine through continuing education. Finally, to complement his education and experience he completed a rotating internship at Animal Specialty and Emergency Center in Los Angeles which covered Internal Medicine, Surgery, Emergency and Critical Care, Radiology and Cardiology.

Now that Dr. Cohen has finished his long journey of vet school and with the support of both families, he can focus on starting a family with his wife Leticia. When it comes to “me time”, he likes to read Stephen King novels, listen to music particularly rock, metal and his guilty pleasure Lady Gaga! To exercise his surgery hands, he loves to play all video games! Finally, to balance his life by getting outdoors he likes to run, hike and camp. The Cohen house is filled with a variety of “Pibbles” to love, starting with “Salma” who is a sweet pit bull that is daddy’s girl, “Patrick” a faithful pit bull that is momma’s boy, the protector of the house “Willow” a rescue kitty from his internship that never leaves his side, “Turtle without a name” a Red Eared Slider Turtle (yes, that is his real name) and two balls of furry Rat love “Talisker” and “Storr”.

Dr. Cohen’s favorite aspect of veterinary medicine is being able to help a part of this world that cannot always help themselves. "One Health" is very important to him and he can use that concept in this field as he treats pets, while experiencing the grateful attitudes from the people who love them.
