Alison Baileys, DVM, cVMA

Dr. Baileys is a graduate of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. She received her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Santa Clara University. While at UC Davis, she co-founded the UC Davis Radiology Club and was the recipient of the The Boyd and Dory Harrold Memorial Scholarship, awarded to a student with outstanding skills in animal handling, nursing, and animal care.


After graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Baileys received extensive training and experience in lameness and imaging at the world class Virginia Equine Imaging with experts Dr. Kent Allen, Dr. Cricket Russillo (US Dressage Team Vet), and Dr. Susan Johns (US Eventing Team Vet). Also as part of her internship, she spent the winter in Wellington, Florida, treating top level sport horses throughout the busy winter circuit. 

Dr. Baileys is a FEI permitted treating veterinarian and is certified in veterinary medical acupuncture. She is also a member of the International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP), an organization dedicated to the promotion of excellence in lameness diagnosis and treatment through worldwide education modules.

Alison grew up riding horses in San Juan Capistrano, California and competed on the ‘A’ hunter/jumper circuit showing nationally as both a junior and an amateur. She was fortunate to train with some of the best hunter trainers in the country, and went on to become the 2007 USEF National Junior Hunter Champion with Taché Rouge, a Selle Francais gelding she imported from France as a 5 year old. 



While she knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a veterinarian, her time spent on the competition circuit reinforced that desire. Her primary interests include equine sports medicine, imaging, rehabilitation and complementary medicine. In her free time, Alison enjoys painting and spending time outside with her two Labradors.
