Dr. Betsy Gray, DVM
Dr. Gray has been with Slate Creek Animal Hospital since 1987 initially practicing both small and large animal medicine and surgery. In 1989, just 2 years into her career as a veterinarian, Dr. Gray purchased the practice from Doc Haley and was the sole owner from 1989 until 2020. In her 30+ years of tenure at Slate Creek she created a legacy of exceptional, compassionate animal care and left some PRETTY BIG shoes to fill! Dr. Gray sold the practice in 2020 to Dr. Vos and continues to care for small animals two days a week. During her 5-day weekends, Dr. Gray enjoys adventures in the Sierras with her husband Ney, two children, and of course, her dog Ande. When she is not at Slate Creek working, she is probably rock climbing, skiing, hiking or kayaking… and enjoying every moment with her husband and family!
Dr. Christina Vos, DVM
Dr. Vos has been with Slate Creek since graduating from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. After enjoying more than 20 years of large and small animal practice, she has taken over the reins as owner of Slate Creek Animal Hospital. Dr. Vos and her husband Paul have 5 children as well as 2 horses, 2 donkeys, and their beloved pups Cooper, Kai, Beau and Galley. When she’s not at Slate Creek caring for patients or handling the practice mechanics, you will most certainly find her on a beach somewhere or paddling into the sunset on the salty Caribbean Sea.
