  • "I began using Pacific Crest last year when we found out my Jospeh had lymphoma cancer. While I was gone on deployment for 6 months, Dr. Labadie and her crew came out to give joe check ups/shots even though I was not present and sent me emails on how he was doing. They are so kind and thorough with their job, I am so grateful to have found Pacific Crest. Thank you so much for caring for my Jospeh!"

    Clean and very efficient . I just love how each patient had his or her own examining room. Double door opens from the outside and they walk into their own examining room complete with everything you can imagine . I truly felt my horse was in good hands . I was very impressed of how the Vet handled the situation.She told me what it would cost and how to proceed . Answered every question . I felt it was handled very professionally and great compassion for my horse . I will definitely go back there again ."

  • "Recently, I referred an Arabian mare for an endoscopic examination of the upper respiratory tract, in search of a diagnosis, to a chronic and unilateral nosebleed (epistaxis). Since it was the first time I referred a patient to Pacific Crest Equine, based on a colleague’s recommendation, I decided to accompany the mare and the owner. Although it was a 7 hour round trip, it was a very positive experience. Doctor D. Anez and his team were highly professional, knowledgeable, and very attentive to the well-being of the patient. Both, the client and I, were highly impressed by the full process, from setting up the appointment with an effective and courteous receptionist, to competent animal technicians, in cleaned and well equipped facilities, and most of all for all the veterinary care the mare received during the visit. I will not hesitate to refer more of my clients to Pacific Crest Equine."
    Pierre Lessard, DVM

I am so grateful to have Pacific Crest Equine working on my horses. Because of the dedication of Dr. Doug Anez and his team, my horses are always ready for competition! Their free farm calls on Monday to the Fresno area has helped keep this care convenient and regular!"

Doug was always a great vet and very compassionate and friendly to work with. When he put down my old horse it was a really professional and caring experience overall and I know he treated my friends the Littlejohns with an old horse equally as well and compassionately.
