VCA Mountain View Animal Hospital

Brad Walker, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Kansas State University


Dr. Walker was born and raised on a farm in Kansas where he has been taking care of animals since he was 6 years old. He graduated from Kansas State University in 1980 walking away from there with his degrees in Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.  Shortly after he  purchased a hospital from his brother, who is also a veterinarian. He practiced in Kansas for 20 years before moving to Arizona with his family in 2002, where he began employment with VCA.

Dr. Walker's outside interests used to consist of lots of fishing but as he gets older he is finding himself spending more time at home with his family especially his grandkids. His furry family consists of his dog Mookie who is his buddy. On your visit ask Dr Walker about Mookie and he will more than gladly show off his picture and tell you all about Mookie and the lizards.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
