John Kaufman has been my veterinarian for almost 20 years. It started with my Anglo-Trakehner “Sunday”, when he was 14 years old. Dr. Kaufman shepherded us until Sunday died at 26. He got us through the late teens and the proper supplements to keep arthritis at bay, then into old age and as “Sunday” was waning, John kept close tabs on his progress and helped me when the time was right to euthanize him. I was especially touched when Dr. Kaufman made a donation to UC Davis in “Sunday’s” name.John Kaufman has helped me buy 4 horses with pre-purchase exams, will always answer my emergency calls and get to the horse as quickly as possible. He’s smart, knowledgeable, caring and gives sound advice to keep costs at a minimum. He has referred me on to specialists when needed and spent the time conferring with those specialist to make sure my horse gets the best care possible. I currently have my horse “Armani” in Dr. Kaufman’s monthly maintenance program. He also does all his vaccinations, yearly power float and anything else we need. John Kaufman is a great all around Vet as well as a fantastic diagnostician when problems arise. He has the latest diagnostic equipment and continues to educate himself in emerging technologies and therapies. I highly recommend Dr. John Kaufman as one of the best equine practitioners in the Bay Area.
