He started his career path attending Occidental College and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry. He then pursued his veterinary education at the University of California, Davis and was awarded his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1981.

Upon his return to the U.S., Dr. Wolf continued his professional career in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has been caring for pets in the greater tri-valley area since 1985.
Dr. Wolf’s love of animals since childhood led him to become a veterinarian. He strives to provide the best care for each pet and help strengthen the bond between owners and their pets. He enjoys working with clients and their pets each day and is glad to know he is improving their lives. Dr. Wolf has special interests in internal medicine and avian, reptile, and exotic animal care.
Dr. Wolf and his wife Linda are proud parents of two adult sons, Aaron and Josh and share their home with several pets including three dogs, “Lyka” (papillion), “Sherman” (cairn terrier/pomeranian mix) and “Jasmine” (springer spaniel mix), two cats, “Nikita” and “Lando”, and an amazon parrot, “Donovan”. During his leisure time, Dr. Wolf enjoys taking kung fu and tai chi classes with Linda, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, reading, travel, and watching sci-fi films.
Dr. Wolf is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the California Veterinary Medical Association, the Contra Costa Veterinary Medical Association, the Association of Avian Veterinarians, and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians.
Dr. Godfrey graduated in 2005 from the U.C. Davis Veterinary School. Her first veterinary job was in Palm Springs working with horses (focusing on Polo horses) and small animals. During this time she broadened her veterinary skills by treating pot belly pigs and goats. A lover of all creatures, great and small, Summer also treats exotic pets such as rabbits and reptiles. She has been a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) since 2008.
Summer lives with her husband, her beautiful baby daughter (Stevie Raye) and a houseful of dogs! When she isn’t treating her four-legged patients, Summer can be found spending time at home with her family and dogs. She loves to visit her in-law’s ranch in Gold Country or her parent’s home in Palo Cedro.
Summer and her family are quite active and enjoy swimming, hiking and playing with the dogs outdoors! Summer’s love and compassion for all animals began as she grew up; her parent’s always rescued and/or fostered animals. Growing up in this animal centric environment paved the way for Summer to create and follow her dream of becoming a veterinarian. Her entire family has pets and Christmas time is especially fun and rambunctious – there can be up to 15 dogs at any given time!
