About Me.

Hello!!  Dr. Kevin here.

Dr. Kevin

Hey, photographs always lie.  In reality I look more like Brad Pitt but this is my stage persona.  The belle of the ball was my partner in crime for over a dozen years, my girl Brook.    Check out the picture below and you’ll see.

With over 30 years of veterinary practice and special interests in orthopedic and cancer care, I have devoted my professional life to helping pets live longer.  This website, and my interest in rapamycin, is a natural extension of that passion.

I graduated from veterinary school at UC Davis back in the dark ages of 1986.  Since that time I have lived throughout the western US — basically wherever there are trout or waves — and currently live in Cayucos, CA.

In my spare time I’ve been known to fish, garden, and sweat a little in Tabata workouts.  My favorite places are the rivers of Colorado, the coast of Maine, and a little place called the Chautauqua Institute.

I pride myself on being a healer and a teacher, and I’d love to partner with you in the holistic health care of your pet.

Combining my two favorite passions.  Bear Creek with Brook.

Kevin was recommended to us by my best friend, and when our kitty was sick, we decided to go to him. It was the best decision we made for our cat, Twisp.
He is a great vet, and was very gentle with her. He was also able to take care of a worm problem she had, and was able to recommend a diet for a skin allergy she had. The diet was the perfect recommendation, and since her visit, she has been a all around, happier cat.
I will always take her, and any pets i have in the future, to Kevin.

Kevin's incredible warmth and caring manner, and.... here's where their service is really different: they prepared a folder with printouts of her lab results, along with explanations of the lab results, Kevin's detailed letter summarizing the exam, the tests, the diagnosis, the treatment, detailed instructions for administering the meds and instructions for feeding her to help her back to normal foods, even a CD showing her x-rays.
Kudos to Kevin and everyone on the staff.  Thank you for saving my furry best friend!

They have seen my pets through diabetes , broken legs, and many other problems always offering the best service and competent care. They are always professional , caring and take good care of your pet and you. The only Veterinary practice that I will use. –

THIS IS THE REASON FOR FIVE STARS. Let me say, Kevin is the first vet I have been to that listened to all of my concerns, questions, needs, and thoughts and didn't rush me along. He took time to get to know the animal they were working with. When he did give me the "diagnosis" their first response was not to give my cat meds, but to try other homeopathic options first. I love that!!
