All Creatures Pet Care Center has been a part of the Porterville community in one form or another since 1964. At that time, it was a mixed animal practice (companion animals as well as livestock). In 1975 Dr. Richard Merrill purchased the small animal portion of the practice and Westwood Veterinary Hospital was born. The hospital operated out of a small converted house from that time until 1992 when the new building was completed. We went from 2200 square feet to 6700 square feet, and became All Creatures Pet Care Center. Dr. Merrill retired 1 year after completion of the hospital, leaving it in the capable hands of Dr. Marcella Roan and Dr. David Imbach . All Creatures Pet Care Center was an Award Of Merit Winner in Veterinary Economics Magazine's design contest in 1994. We were a feature article in the September 1994 issue.
Dr Roan retired in March of 2012.
Dr. Imbach is a 1986 graduate of University of California-Davis. He also joined the practice right after graduating. Born and raised in Strathmore, he was employed by Dr. Merrill as a high school student.
