Dr. Marc Malek, DVM
Foothill Farms Veterinary Hospital
Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist and Therapeutic Laser Clinician/ Level III Reiki practitioner and instructor/Certified Fear Free Veterinarian
Known as Dr. Doolittle by many clients, Dr. Malek (aka Dr. M) lives his dream everyday helping the animals he loves and the people who love them. He graduated from U.C. Davis with a B.S. in Environmental Toxicology in 1986 and in 1990 from the School of Veterinary Medicine. Immediately after graduating Dr. M began practicing with a mixed animal practice (large and small animals) in the Marysville/Wheatland area. When the owner of the practices sold the large animal component of the practices Dr. M moved to Sacramento and began a new challenge as the managing veterinarian for a fast paced small animal clinic in 1993. The opportunity to purchase Foothill Farms Veterinary hospital trumped a potential surgical residency in 1994.
Dr. M is an accomplished surgeon and internist having worked in solo and group practice for over 26 years. Over the last 5 years Dr. M has dedicated much of his continuing education to Integrative practice. Therapeutic laser treatment has been a staple at FFVH since 2011 due to Dr. M's early adoption of this rapid physical medicine healing therapy. He received his Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (large and small animal) certification in April 2014 from Colorado Veterinary Medicine Association's OneHealth SIM Acupuncture course. He and many of the staff have been learning and practicing Animal Reiki since 2012 and he received his level III Animal Reiki instructor certification in June of 2014.
