Loomis Basin is moving into bigger digs.Â Formerly located in Loomis, the new location in Penryn will double the capacity of the Center to treat large animals, increasing it to 40 horses, cows, llamas, or alpacas, among others, at any one time.Â In addition, two barns and more land will allow for increased boarding of animals and rehabilitation services.Â Loomis Basin plans to add an additional three veterinarians on staff as well.
To celebrate their new location, the Center will be hosting a Grand Opening and Horse Fair on June 30th.Â The festivities will occur from 9 am to 2 pm and will feature a series of informative mini-seminars on equine health.Â Topics include a podiatry demo, MRI procedure, the equine heart, breeding basics, and the equine eye among others.Â There will also be informational booths from local vendors (including SacHorse.com!) and lunch will be available.
Loomis Basin has been open since 1975 as a veterinary clinic serving both farm and companion animals.Â The large animal clinic was established in 1991 as an independent practice with the equine hospital opening in 2004.Â The practice was officially renamed Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center in 2005.Â It is the only facility of its kind, offering hospitalization, surgery and intensive care for horses, between San Francisco and Reno with the exception of the facilities at the U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
The new Center is located at 2973 Penryn Road, Penryn, CA.Â Off of Highway 80, take Penryn Road heading North.Â The Clinic will be located on your right hand side.Â A map of the location is provided below.
