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

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

Dr. Ned is just the best! He is knowledgeable and compassionate, and I know my dogs Baxter and Zoe are in the best hands when we visit. We love you Dr Ned!!

 

Allison Bishop Lucas

Emily Cutchall

The Cardozas

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.

Brody usually is terrified of the vet, the second he walked in they greeted him with smiles, love and cookies, this was just the receptionists. The Dr and assistant were also phenomenal! They explained everything thoroughly and were very generous of Brody's needs. They treated myself & Brody with respect, they truly love animals and are absolutely amazing. I highly recommend that anyone with a pet goes to this vet! They aren't a vet, they are family. 

 

Jessica Wilson

Had some concerns about my dog and asked quite a few questions. Each questioned was answered in detail, and I never felt rushed as I listened, reflected, & made choices about my dog’s health. I left with 100% confidence that my dog received the best healthcare. I’d recommend Oakdale Veterinary Group to everyone.

Kelley Cummins Blanc

They saved my dog’s life. Mariah was losing weight, 20lbs, and having diarrhea daily. Dr. Anita took over Mariah’s case and worked with me to develop a plan to save her. I’m happy to say she’s gained back all her weight and more is that happy sassy girl I knew. I love all the vets. They are knowledgeable and compassionate and the techs and receptionist are amazing. I wouldn’t dream of taking my pups anywhere else.

Nancy Patton

Love Oakdale vet! Dr.Trathan is the best. We love everyone at Oakdale vet.

Rachel Marie Moorhouse Silva

Dr. Anita Zifer made what I thought was going to be very emotional day by having to put my dog down. But she was great and was very patient and explained to me how we could treat my dog and not have to put her down. I just can't thank her enough for everything she did for us today. And think she is an excellent veterinary! Thank you again!
