A LETTER FROM DR. KEITH BERKELEY:

Dear Valued Clients:

Thank you for your many years of trusted friendship and support. It has been a privilege to be your vet and friend for the past 39 years. Thank you for many years of providing Valley Equine the opportunity to provide for your animals. Our relationships have been my lifelong dream. Due to health issues and some limited mobility, I am retiring from equine veterinary practice. My current health is good and I'm doing well now, but it's time to do something a little different.

As you may know, Valley Equine is being sold to Dr. Benjamin Dubois and he will be practicing as Finish Line Equine Surgery, PLLC at the same physical location and with the same phone number as Valley Equine.

Valley Equine closed its billing as of September 27, 2023 and statements were mailed today. For billing questions or to make a payment please call our new billing line at 681-261-3607 or email us at [email protected]. You may also pay via PayPal on our website of www.valleyequine.net.

Any veterinary service performed by Dr. Dubois from September 28, 2023, forward will be billed by Finish Line Equine. Clients continuing services with Finish Line Equine will need to set up payment arrangements directly with their office.

Again, let me thank you for your understanding, friendship, and trust in treating your animals. Best of luck in all your future endeavors.

Sincerely,
Keith B. Berkeley, DVM

An update on Dr. Berkeley from daughter, Nell Berkeley:

We just wanted to give everyone a brief update on dad and say thank you so much for the constant prayers and love. Dad remains in the hospital for the time being and his left leg continues to be non-weight bearing. Your Dr. Berkeley hasn’t lost his sense of humor or positive attitude and has been in good spirits through it all. At this time, our family is blessed to share that all our immediate needs are being met. A special “thank you”to those who are feeding our livestock and helping on the farm. Another gentle reminder that any veterinary related inquiries can be directed to Valley Equine Associates. Thank you all for everything you’ve done to love on my family. ❤️

12/05/2022

To our clients and friends from Dr. Keith Berkeley's daughter, Nell Berkeley, on behalf of their family:

On Thursday, December 1, my dad, your Dr. Berkeley, was admitted to the hospital and subsequently had emergency surgery due to a blood clot in his calf. Dad is currently recovering from this operation and will remain in the hospital for the next several days. The healing process for this procedure is long and intensive. At this time, Dad does not have his cell phone or iPad for communication. All veterinary-related inquiries may be directed to Valley Equine Associates, and any cards or well wishes may also be delivered to VEA. Updates on Dad's medical recovery will be posted periodically on this page. My family would like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who has stepped along side us and provided support as we enter this unexpected season of life. We are overwhelmed by your love and thoughtfulness during this time.

Please join us in welcoming our new Associate Veterinarian/Equine Surgeon, Dr. Ben Dubois!

Dr. Dubois is originally from France and obtained his DVM degree with honors in 2015 from the National Veterinary School of Lyon, after a clinical training at the University of Montreal. He went on to the United Kingdom, completing an internship at the equine hospital of the Royal Veterinary College in London. After returning to North America, he was a surgical intern at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, Kentucky, prior to his surgical residency at the Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center (Northern Virginia). In addition to his surgical training in Virginia, Dr. Dubois spent time back in Kentucky and Maryland to refine his expertise in juvenile and racehorse orthopedics, as well as upper airway surgery. He also carried on research and published manuscripts in oral surgery and angular limb deformities. At the end of his residency, Dr. Dubois moved to Southern Ontario, Canada to work at the Milton Equine Hospital as a surgeon for a year and continued to work with Thoroughbred and Standardbred racehorses. He then returned to the US and joined Valley Equine as a surgeon in March 2022.
Dr. Dubois is board certified in Large Animal surgery with the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.

He is excited to join the Valley Equine team and we are thrilled to have him! 🩺
