Dr. Bob Yack, DVM

Veterinarian

Hi there! I’m Dr. Bob!

I attended Southern Illinois University, and received my Bachelors of Science in 1988, and then my Master’s in Animal Science in 1989. I graduated from the University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine with my doctorate of veterinary medicine in 1993.

After I graduated as a doctor, I continued my education and received my post degree Certifications in External fixation and Internal fixations specializing in plate reconstructions in 1994, Stifle reconstruction in 1995, Cosmetic plate reconstruction in 1996, and my Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy certification in 2002. If you can’t tell, I really enjoy the orthopedics!

I performed emergency medicine at Champaign Urbana Emergency Clinic in Illinois and Mueller Animal Hospital in Sacramento until my wife Lisa (who is also a veterinary internist and oncologist) and I purchased Jackson Creek Veterinary Clinic in 1996.  We wanted to do the best medicine we could and treat every patient as if they were our own. Our original clinic was on Jackson Gate Road next to Teresa’s restaurant and it quickly grew. We built our current location in 2000.

I was honored by the Morris Animal Foundation & Hills Pet Nutrition in 2010 as one of the top five veterinarians in the nation, taking first place for the western region, and am incredibly humbled that my clients nominated me for such an honor.

We have 2 children, Michaela and Dylan. There is a multitude of dogs, cats, and chickens. Some of my passions are flying Remote Controlled planes with my son, Miniature Armour modeling, weight lifting, and being with my family.

Dr. Stacy Pettigrew, DVM

Veterinarian

Hi, I’m Dr. Stacy! I received my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of California at Davis in 2002, and have been with JCVC ever since I graduated! I love reproduction and enjoy performing artificial inseminations, breedings, and cesarean sections.

I have French Bulldogs that I enjoy showing at conformation shows and Labrador Retrievers, a couple of cats, and a pig named Rosie. We also have a lot of chickens! My husband and our two daughters help collect eggs every day. As a family, we enjoy gardening and farming on our land, Prospect Farms.

Dr. Alli Duff, DVM

Veterinarian

Hi, I’m Dr. Alli! I received my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from UC Davis in 2015, and have been JCVC since I graduated. I love caring for all animals for any reason, but I really enjoy dermatology, ophthalmology, internal medicine, and surgery. I am also passionate about caring for pet owners, so please do not hesitate to voice any questions or concerns that you may have while you’re here.

I spend most of my spare time with family – my husband and my three daughters, 3 Chihuahuas, one Coonhound, and a cat. We like to go camping together, watch movies, and eat ice cream!

Dr. Mark Madden, DVM

Veterinarian

Hi! I’m Dr. Mark. I received my DVM degree from the University of California, Davis, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. I had a small animal clinic, with a specialty in treating reptiles, exotic animals and pocket pets in the Bay Area for 20 years, before moving to the Sierra Foothills and joining JCVC in 2001.

I enjoy doing chores around our property and caring for our many pets. My wife Fran and I volunteer with Golden Gate Basset Rescue in our spare time. We have two adopted Basset Hounds, plus a foster dog, or two. In addition, we have four cats, 10 chickens, a few finches, and two nearly 100-year-old California desert tortoises. The male tortoise, Neb, was found as an adult on a street in San Francisco in 1952.

Jeanette

Practice Manager

Hi, my name is Jeanette. I have worked with animals since 1982 when I worked for a veterinarian in the Bay Area, and have been with JCVC since 2004. My love for all animals is what made me want to work in the veterinary field. My favorite part of working here is helping and educating clients to care for their pets.

I had a Golden Retriever named Chico (pictured to the left).

I love helping all kinds of animals from furry to scaly!

Caitlin

Registered Veterinary Technician

Returning to veterinary medicine has always been a dream of mine and I am so excited to be back. I love working at JCVC!
