Modoc Veterinary Center's mission is to provide our clients the best value in veterinary service and ensure our patients receive the highest level of comfort and care.  Founded in 1947 as a one doctor practice serving the Modoc County area, our mixed animal practice located in Alturas, CA has evolved and expanded into a multi-doctor veterinary hospital. Our satellite locations in Cedarville and Adin service the extended communities of Surprise Valley, Big Valley, McArthur, and more.   Our experienced veterinarians and staff offer a multitude of services, including 24 hour on-call emergency service.

Small animals, horses, and livestock compose the variety of patients seen at our veterinary practice.  Clinical services offered are examinations, vaccinations, health screens and in-house laboratory testing as well as state-of-the-art radiograph technology.  Routine surgical procedures, extensive dentistry, and certain orthopedic repairs are performed Tuesday through Friday.  We also offer special procedures such as artificial insemination and ultrasound.
