Wasson Memorial Veterinary Clinic

Wasson Memorial Veterinary ClinicOur goal is to help you help your pet to live a long, happy and healthy life.  We believe good communication is important. Our doctors will listen closely to your concerns and  questions and take the time to explain what’s happening and what should be done. We will work  together with you to reach a final decision and treatment plan. We have an open door policy – we’ll  take you anywhere in the hospital to show you what we can do and what’s happening to your pet.  You’re invited to watch us bandage your pet’s hurt paw, draw blood to run some blood tests, clean  your pet’s teeth, visit your sick, hospitalized pet, or scan your pet’s abdomen with an ultrasound.  We want you to feel comfortable and informed about your pet’s condition and needed treatments.  Your peace of mind is important to us.

Dr Chris S Holmes

After growing up and graduating from high school in Santa Cruz, I  headed to UC San Diego to get my Bachelors degree in Animal  Physiology. After graduation, I went to to UC Davis for Veterinary  School. The day after graduation I married Lori, left on a  honeymoon, came back and had to find a rental house in Lake  County within a week of returning so that I could start working as a  veterinarian in Lakeport. That was 1994, I have been here ever  since. I should point out that I had never heard of Lake County  before my job interview. It takes a while, but this place definitely  grows on you.

I would like to say that my hobbies outside of work include soccer,  surfing and wake boarding. But now that I’m over the hill I guess my  hobbies include Dr Holmes soccer coaching my sons’ and daughter’s  teams and being the boat driver for my kids. Through the kids, as  well as through work, we have met and become friends with many  wonderful people. We are proud to call Lake County home.

We treat our patients as they were our own pets and give  our best to offer you the service that you desire and deserve.

We practice all aspects of small animal veterinary medicine
