What areas do you travel to?

We service most of Mendocino County. We generally work between Leggett and Westport to the north, and between Hopland and Sea Ranch to the south. Other places we service are Willits, Redwood Valley, Potter Valley, and Ukiah. Dr. Willson is located on the coast, so availability inland may be limited.

Can I bring my animal to you?

Yes! We see patients at the Redwood Riders Arena in Redwood Valley by prior arrangement. Or to Shoreline Rider Arena on the coast by prior arrangement. If you bring your animals to the arena, you won’t be charged a ranch call fee.

What animals do you work on?

Despite the practice’s name (Mendocino Equine) we enjoy working with:

  • Horses
  • Cattle
  • Sheep
  • Goats
  • Llamas
  • Alpacas

We will give ranch dogs a rabies vaccination but can provide no other small animal services.

I need some Bute. Can you send me some?

Prescription drugs can legally only be dispensed to established clients in the context of a valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship. With that being said, we are happy to provide prescription drugs by mail/UPS to our patients with ongoing problems or chronic conditions, such as bute for horses with arthritis or NuFlor to cattle operations with a history of shipping fever. Until the online pharmacy is up and running, send an email to with your request.

My neighbor just got some horses. Are you accepting new clients?

Yes, we are currently accepting new clients! Please call us to schedule an appointment.

What methods of payment are accepted?

In order to maintain our high standard of service, we require that payment is made at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, personal check, and most major credit cards.
