Hospital History

history-1Douglas Blvd Veterinary Clinic was established in 1964, as a mixed animal practice by Dr. Wallace.   At that time, Douglas Blvd. was a 2-lane road all the way to Folsom Lake.  Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic bought the practice from Dr. Wallace in the 1970’s, followed by Dr. Wendy Shelton acquiring the practice in the early 80’s. After acquiring the practice from Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic, the practice evolved into a small animal practice. Drs. Ann Bittaker and Linda Nickens bought the practice from Dr. Shelton in 1995. In 2001, an extensive remodel upgraded the practice to its current condition. It remains one of the premier small animal practices in the Sacramento Valley.
