Dr. Angele Blanton

In August 2019, Ohana Pet Hospital incorporated Santa Paula Animal Clinic into its practice and welcomed the clinic’s former owner Dr. Angele Blanton to the hospital’s general practice in Santa Paula.

Originally from South Louisiana, Dr. Angele Blanton fell in love with dogs one Saturday morning when she was nine years old when she met a shy little stray mutt hanging around the property. Shortly thereafter she read a book by Dr. J.Y. Henderson, “Circus Doctor,” about the adventures of the veterinarian for the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circus. That sealed the deal.

Her path to veterinary medicine however, wasn’t straight. As Dr. Blanton recounts, “First there was a digression into marriage and motherhood. Next there were various jobs in a bank, an insurance agency, a newspaper, and a degree in technical journalism. Then there were jobs teaching
English composition, yoga, and astrology, and a seven year run as a show dog breeder and handler.”

Dr. Blanton completed her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University in 1986.  She took over Santa Paula Animal Clinic in 1989 and there she remained until the clinic was incorporated by Ohana Veterinary Hospital in 2019. Dr. Blanton continues to work part-time for the Santa Paula branch of Ohana Veterinary Hospital.

When not caring for animals, Dr. Blanton enjoys playing classical guitar in the Ventura College chamber music orchestra. She has shared her life with various cats, Cocker Spaniels, Dachshunds, Dalmatians, Irish Wolfhounds, Dobermans, Maltese, and Yorkies. “I’m currently awaiting the next animal to appear in my household,” she commented.

Please help us give a warm welcome to Dr. Blanton the next time you’re in Ohana Pet Hospital Santa Paula.
