Our veterinarians provide all aspects of large herd dairy medicine and management, including but not limited to: routine herd health consultation, reproductive services, emergency services, milk barn assessments, employee training in English and Spanish and records analysis. Our clinic also runs a very busy milk quality laboratory. We provide an excellent mentorship program for new graduates to ensure your success as you begin your career. There are 9 veterinarians here with a wide range of interests within dairy practice so new graduates have ample experience to draw on.

We have mild winters and warm summers, and are located within 2 hours of the beautiful Central Coast region of California. The Sierra Nevada Mountains with endless outdoor opportunities are within an hour of our clinic, as is the gateway to Sequoia National Park. Los Angeles and San Francisco are both approximately 3 hours away. Fresno is 45 minutes away and has a very convenient international airport.
