Welcome to Sierra Veterinary Services
Sierra Veterinary Services, LLC is a full service, modern veterinary facility. We are well equipped for both large and small animals and are here to serve the needs of Sierra County residents.
Dr. Danielle Dawkins purchased Hot Springs Animal Clinic from Dr. Cardwell in May 2012. At that time Sierra Veterinary Services, LLC was up and running continuing to serve the residents of Sierra county.
Our team is committed to providing our patients and clients with the most up to date and highest quality services. We strive to offer the best preventative, routine, and emergency care while being mindful of financial constraints. Our goal is to educate our clients in order to help our patients achieve the highest quality of life. We are dedicated to treating patients as if they were members of our own family while openly and honestly communicating with our clients.
Introducing Dr. Danks
"I have known since I was 6 years old that I wanted to become a veterinarian. I grew up in Northeast Ohio surrounded by wildlife and pets, including 2 parrots that are now 30 years old! Throughout my childhood I was routinely found catching frogs and toads in local creeks, collecting stray kittens, and being involved in different activities at the local parks.
I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Findlay in Findlay Ohio in 2010, double-majoring in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Biology along with minoring in Chemistry. I completed my veterinary education in 2014 at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts, West Indies. RUSVM is fully accredited by the AVMA.
I have a passion for caring for animals of all shapes and sizes, and I enjoy the challenge of veterinary medicine. I have 2 dogs, 2 Sphynx cats, 4 New Caledonian geckos, 1 desert lizard, 2 Fire Belly Toads and 2 Slider Turtles. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, running and playing the French horn."
