Description

South Davis Veterinary Center has been a part of the Davis community since February 2003, and we can't thank you enough. We love being your vets! We appreciate that you are educated, compassionate, and care for your pets with abundant love and concern. We have enjoyed meeting so many of you and look forward to helping your families in the future.
Our philosophy is based upon personal attention and education. During our 30-minute appointments we strive to give you the information you need to make the right decisions about your pet's care. We individualize treatments, vaccination schedules, and recommended preventatives based on what you do with your pet and where you live. We believe that this minimizes risk to your pets, while maximizing their potential for robust health and longevity. Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy, comfortable and playful, so your bonds can grow and grow.

We have equipped our hospital to handle anesthesia of geriatric or critical patients, and the healthy patients benefit as well. Each patient is unique, and our approach to anesthesia and perioperative pain control reflects that. It takes extra effort to train the staff in the use of monitoring equipment, the use of in-hospital blood chemistry analysis, and the use of different anesthetic agents and pain control medications.

Dentistry: Probably the most overlooked problem affecting dogs and cats in America is proper oral care. Just as in our mouths, bacterial populations produce a film that binds to the enamel of the teeth. That film mineralizes into hard tartar which holds the bacteria right next to the gums. As more bacteria grow, they fill the gaps between the gum and the tooth, creating larger gaps and loosening the attachments to the tooth.

Dr. Mike Yackey
Dr. Mike Yackey

Dr. Mike Yackey grew up in a suburb of San Diego, CA. After graduating from UC San Diego in 1992 with degrees in Biochemistry and Psychology, he worked at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla studying neuroscience. He moved to Davis in 1994 to start veterinary school, bringing his 3 cats with him. While at UCD, he focused on small animal medicine with special interests in surgery, anesthesia, and radiology. He worked on a couple of research projects including one that sent him to Africa. He worked in Sacramento for 5 years before opening South Davis Veterinary Center with his wife, Dr. Bradley. Outside interests include surfing, snowboarding, kayaking, and backpacking- none of which he gets to do now. He also helps in the garden, scoops the litterboxes and takes out the trash.

Dr. Cara Bradley
Dr. Cara Bradley

Dr. Cara Bradley was born and raised in Los Angeles. She went to UC Berkeley for her undergraduate education in English. She started vet school at UC Davis in 1992. Her focus was on small animal medicine with special interests in internal medicine, radiology, and ultrasound. She worked for 7 years in a progressive practice in San Ramon while it grew from 4 doctors to 11. She is very excited to work at her own practice in Davis. Her hobbies include kayaking, gardening, hiking, and reading.
Mike and Cara live in downtown Davis with their dog, Noodle, and their cats, Marina and Wadude. We are always happy to hear about your pet's issues- as we have likely faced similar ones at home. Jack, one our beloved kitties, used to put us such a struggle that it would take three people to restrain him in the veterinary hospital. And our dearly departed, Penelope, who was easy to work with at the hospital couldn�t be given a pill by three veterinary professionals working in tandem at home.

Dr. Cameron Collins

Dr Collins grew up in the Bay Area and attended UC Davis for both his undergraduate degree and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He graduated UC Davis’s School of Veterinary Medicine with honors in 2009. His focus was small animal medicine with special interests in emergency medicine, oncology, and surgery. He worked closely with Dr. Michael Kent and collaborated on cancer research projects while a student. Before joining the South Davis Vet family he worked at a large regional specialty veterinary practice allowing him to bring a wealth of experience and skills back to Davis. In his free time Dr. Collins enjoys being outdoors- hiking, snowboarding (yes, he can land 360’s), and skiing. He also enjoys hanging out at home with his wife, Staci. She is a nutritionist, so Cameron also watches his diet. He can help make good recommendations for your pets as well. His four legged family includes two cool dogs, Gracie and Colby, and two cats, Wiley and Tink.
