Dr. Appleton
Dr. Appleton

Dr. Appleton, a general practitioner, is not actually a native of California. Born and raised in Lexington, Nebraska, he spent all of his education east of the Rockies. A Dean's list, Biology major at both the University of Nebraska and Colorado State University, Dr. Appleton went on to earn his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University in 1979. It is no surprise that he was voted the Most Client Oriented as a senior veterinary student. A member of AVMA and AAHA, Dr. Appleton's professional interest lies with reproduction in addition to providing outstanding care to all of his patients.

When not at the hospital, Dr. Appleton is a proud member of the "Bear Backers", a high school athletic support organization. Dr. Appleton and his wife Chris have four children. While they are either graduated from college or currently attending school, the house is certainly not empty! Hoosier, a Golden Retriever, and Grey Kitty, are more than happy to take all the attention.
