Please take some time to get to know us! Larkfield Veterinary Hospital's team is made up of professional and caring individuals with unique backgrounds but we all share the same compassion for high quality care for furry friends.
Dr. India McEvoy
Dr. India McEvoy is a graduate of the University of Delaware, where she received her BS in Chemistry, minor in Animal Sciences. Dr. McEvoy received her DVM from The University of California Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine which was followed by an internship with East Bay Veterinary Specialists and Emergency. She then joined Sage Veterinary Centers as an emergency associate working at the four specialty referral centers in the East Bay. She enjoys the many aspects of veterinary medicine but has a strong interest in diagnostic imaging, surgery, internal and preventative medicine along with emergency work.
When she's not treating patients, Dr. McEvoy enjoys riding and competing her horses Kalypso and Eloise, hiking, running and attempting to train her young Labrador, Oliver. Dr. McEvoy's interest in veterinary medicine started very early. She follows in the footsteps of both her father and grandfather as a third generation in the profession. She has enjoyed working with animals and medicine, and found the perfect profession to do both.
Dr. Kevin Sheehy
Larkfield Veterinary Hospital is very excited to introduce the newest member of our team, Dr. Kevin Sheehy. Kevin, originally from Los Gatos California, has been a valued veterinarian of the Los Gatos Dog and Cat Hospital for the past 19 years. He is joining us as an experienced veterinarian helping us continue to take the best care possible of your furry family members. To our delight, Dr Sheehy recently decided to relocate with his lovely wife Lisa (restauranteur & certified Sommelier) to Sonoma County to be closer to family.
Dr Sheehy is a graduate of the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He continues to expand his knowledge and give back to his Alma Mater by working as an Adjunct Professor at WSU wherein he teaches second year veterinary students in a case-based learning program, the Diagnostic Challenge.
Upon graduation, Dr. Sheehy elected to complete a 13-month internship in Emergency Medicine at Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital. Here he expanded his knowledge, gained valuable experience and worked with seasoned veterinarians in order to start his career with a wider knowledge base. Once completed, Kevin returned to his hometown of Los Gatos where he has worked as a dedicated veterinarian to his local community.
Kevin is delighted to be joining the Larkfield Team and looking forward to enjoying beautiful Sonoma County with Lisa and their two beloved dogs Baby G (Catahoula Hound) and Frankee (a "career change" white Labrador from the Bergin Institute of Canine Studies in Rohnert Park).
When Kevin takes time away from tending to his many patients, Kevin and Lisa enjoy traveling the world, hiking with their dogs as well as cooking for friends and family while enjoying fine wines.
&Please join us in welcoming Dr. Sheehy and his family! He is excited to be joining our team and cannot wait to meet you and all your furry friends in the near future.
Dr. Cynthia York
Greetings! I miss you all!!! As some of you know, I have been sick for many years, but still my tumble down into such an incapacitating level of bad health took me by surprise. I have worked so hard to stay involved with the practice because I love it so much. I did know this day would come, but hoped to delay it a while more by shortening my days. Unfortunately, suddenly even three hour days are too long, so I have stopped working altogether. I am sorry this letter is so long in coming - it has been an unhappy adjustment for me. What strength I had was aimed at taking care of my precarious hold on the new world. Well, life changes for all of us, and now I am rested and lively enough to say hello again. I miss you all (well, nearly all, but that is part of life too), and want you to now how much I valued being in your lives. Really, truly, a pleasure. I wish you all well, and each of you needs to scratch your various pets on their happy little heads, in my name, right not, today. If I ever get well enough to rejoin the part-time workforce, I will absolutely do it at Larkfield. They have been wonderful to work with, and continue to be my friends. I hope that even with he changes that inevitably come with staff changes, you will want to stay with them. I am very happy knowing Dr. McEvoy will take good care of you and even more importantly, your pets. The front and back lay staff is the same as it has been for some years, and I would not have worked with them if I did not know how dependably skilled, good and kind they are. Stick with them. So that is my news! If you need me or just want to say hi, my cell phone is 707 322-5848. Be forewarned that I often don’t answer, but I am willing, and I will try. I think I am going to enjoy the new state of affairs.
All my best, please be healthy, wealthy and wise,
Cynthia York DVM
