003.JPG BRIAN S. BURKS, D.V.M. DIPL., A.B.V.P.                             Board Certified Equine Specialist

Dr. Brian Burks grew up in the San Joaquin Valley of California, where he was active in the 4-H club, specifically canine obedience and rabbitry. In an effort to realize his dream of becoming a veterinarian, he began to work as a veterinary assistant for Dr. Michael Stabbe at Clovis Equine Clinic. During this time he attended California State University, Fresno. Brian is a graduate of Oklahoma State University School of Veterinary Medicine. In preparation for a residency program, he completed an internship at Equine Medical Associates, outside of St. Louis, Missouri. After an internal medicine residency at the University of Georgia, he came to Fox Run Equine Center in 1998. He has authored journal articles and has been a speaker for veterinary continuing education programs. In 2006, he became boarded by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, in equine practice. The ABVP recognizes excellence in the practice of veterinary medicine, and is an arduous endeavor involving case reports and examination.

While Brian's primary interest remains in internal medicine, he is also quite knowledgeable regarding many orthopedic and surgical problems. He takes great satisfaction in diagnosing difficult cases and joy in a successful recovery. Although time outside of work is limited, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Amy, warmblood horses, and four dogs.  Nothing is more important to him than his patients' care and treatment.

Testimonial

Dr. Burks came out on a weekend when my horse had colic. He was very thorough and was great with my horse as well as decent conversation and didn't make me feel badly when asking questions. Thank you for looking at my boy with such short notice!
