Welcome To Modoc Veterinary Center

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.

About Our Practice

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.

We will do our best to accommodate your busy schedule. Request an appointment today!

What Our Clients Are Saying


Lori L.

I cannot say enough about this practice. I drove almost 2 hours because my dog was severely ill. Dr. Russell and her staff performed the necessary tests to find out what was going on. I got an answer quickly and was able to make a decision. Not confident any of the emergency vets in Reno would have done such a thorough evaluation. Thank you so much! Keep up the great work!

Janie H.

It is reassuring that my puppy, Joey, is handled with care and affection while boarding at Modoc Veterinary Hospital in Alruras CA. We I love the staff and he appreciates the affection and clean environment.

Brenda P.

They actually CARE about my dog. Dr. Paul caught a couple of major things my other vet missed or didn't care about. I have already been telling everyone about this clinic. They are decently priced also.

Mark M.

Medicine done right. These doctors and their qualified team stay focused on the patient (:- -:) and guardian. Competent, capable, resourced. They have built a treasure of veterinary healing in the heart of Modoc. Thank you doctors and your amazing team. Forever grateful.
