About Our Practice.
Once you contact us, our scheduling staff will coordinate your pet's appointment with you. It's important to our team that your pet receives the best possible medical care for their needs. We will carefully screen your appointment to assure that we can provide the care that your pet needs in a house call setting. If we feel that your pet may need advanced diagnostics (x-rays or ultrasound), or is too critical to treat in a home environment, then we will recommend that your pet receive the care that they need at a veterinary clinic.
We are able to perform routine diagnostics, deliver important medications, and treat most non-urgent medical needs for your pet in the comfort of their own home. We see cats and dogs only. We do not perform home euthanasia, and highly recommend PetHospice for end of life care. They can be reached at 510-7888-5550 or www.pethospice.com
Dr. Margo Reid is an East Coast native who grew up exploring the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania with the family dogs by her side. At the age of 14, Margo began work at a local veterinary clinic as a kennel assistant and dog groomer. Her passion for the profession grew as she went on to become an overnight graveyard technician at a specialty clinic in San Francisco.
Margo worked through the night and attended classes at CAL by day, where in 2001 she obtained a bachelors degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology.
Margo went on to pursue her doctorate in veterinary medicine at the University of California at Davis and graduated with the class of 2007. Since then, she has spent 11 years in clinical practice as a small animal general practitioner. Margo has a particular passion for wellness exams, senior care, and animals who are struggling with mobility issues.
Margo is certified in veterinary acupuncture, and has completed certification course work from the University of Tennessee in canine physical therapy and rehabilitation. She is an integrative veterinarian at heart, believing where one system fails, the other can often deliver a solution.
Margo spends her free time much as she did when she was a child; roaming the Oakland hills with her hound dog Travis by her side. She is an avid gardener, a weekend traveler and a self-professed foodie. Margo shares her home with her partner, their three precocious cats, and a sunbathing hound.
