About Oakdale Veterinary Group

Oakdale Veterinary Group (OVG) was founded in 1979 by Doctor Cal and Robin Cadmus. In 2013 they were joined by Dr Ned Trathan, who later went on to purchase the hospital from them in 2016. Ned was joined by Dr Anita Zifer in 2018. Together they are passionate about delivering a quality service to the 7000 clients who bring their pets to OVG.

Ned and Anita are supported by a team of 12 full time support staff who take our mission of “caring for your pets and family as our own” seriously, and you can expect this to be evident in every staff member’s approach to both medicine and customer service.

They Love Us

After finding out my corgi needed CCL surgery. I did my research and found Oakdale Veterinary Group almost 1 hr away from where I live. I AM SO HAPPY I found them and chose them. The entire staff is awesome. Dr. Ned is the surgeon that specializes on CCL surgeries. He gives you options in deciding what type of surgery to chose based on fee. He is the best. He goes above and beyond in explaining every detail of the surgery pre/post.

I’m impressed with how thorough everything is explained, how the expected costs are given prior to treatment, and how caring towards our animals the staff are.

Debbie Savage

Great friendly staff and care! Affordable too :)

 

Carolyn Borradori

Dr. Trathan is one of the most caring vets we’ve known. Even our 18-year old cat, Oliver, immediately took to him–he articulated his affection very loudly and showed his appreciation by sharing something of a personal nature. Despite all of that, Dr Trathan called him a “good boy.” We love Dr. Trathan!

 

Fred and Barbara W.

I needed for my sweet Boxer to be seen ASAP and the nearest appt was 4 days away. I actually called at 8am on a Monday and they were able to take her as an Urgent need and had me in and out by 10:30am. As always their professionalism and compassion is extraordinary. Thankful for a staff that cares.

Leisa Westgate Seese

Thank you! I’ve used other vets but you are by far the best.

Dr. Anita treats her fur patients with love and respect.

Diane Korupp

I visited the clinic, today, with my dog. I’ve been chasing down an elusive issue with my dog for a few months and have received help from the veterinarians and staff at Oakdale Vet. I enjoy my time spent with them. Dr. Trathan, and Dr. Cadmus during his time, will always discuss ideas and options with me, giving me sound input. He has never tried to sell me on doing a procedure that may not be beneficial. We take the time to evaluate the risks and benefits; he will illustrate and explain thoughts and diagnoses, and it makes me feel so much better for it.

Marleen Ferguson

I can’t tell you how grateful we are that we have such awesome vets! Your patience, communication, and above-and-beyond care is just incredible, and I know Hammie and Bear are in great hands.

 

Jenna W.

I met the new owner. He is so patient and kind. Explained what was done to my dog, I was given a print out of her blood work and x-rays which is great. He explained all the blood work and the x-rays. While my dog was still in her procedure I received a phone call with an update. I am impressed with the Vets and staff at Oakdale Veterinary group.
