  • Gary Reinhardt

    'I knew I wanted to be a Veterinarian since I was 8 years old'

    I began my career in a farm practice in rural Michigan and then moved to the busiest small animal practice in north Chicago. I relocated to California and was fortunate to join the staff of a specialty practice, awarded the honor of 'Practice of The Year' in the United States. I was then recruited to open and manage the first emergency and critical care facility in Berkeley where I treated over 20,000 patients.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I just moved here, and had appointments for my 2 dogs with Dr Gary. He is amazing with my dogs. They both were relaxed, which they have never been during vet visits! Dr Gary and his staff obviously know animals well, and gave me great suggestions for some behavior problems I was having. His suggestions have worked wonders. I am so happy to have found this vet, as I know my 2 dogs will always have the best of care with Dr Gary and his staff! Highly recommend!"
