Congratulations to Jaime and Erik on the birth of their son Thomas John! We can't wait to meet Tommy when he and Jaime come for a visit in May.
Dr Kendall Willson
To Our Clients, Friends and Family,
As many of you have heard, Dr. Willson was recently offered a job in her husband’s home town in California and she has decided to take it. This happened rather suddenly and things are moving very quickly. She’ll be leaving the second week of September and we are working hard to figure things out! Dr. Lehfeldt will be here to provide care in the interim and we will let you know the future of Sierra Nevada Large Animal Hospital as soon as we do.
We wish all the best to Kendall and Dave as they start this new chapter!
