A mobile veterinary practice, Wild Ride Wildlife Services seeks to provide medical and surgical care at no charge for free-ranging wild animals and migratory birds.
Sound practices for veterinary care of wild animals include the separation of wildlife from domestic animals that can be a source of numerous zoonotic diseases, some of which may have not yet been discovered. Any wild animals treated should be separated from all domestic species to reduce captivity stress, quarantine against possible transmissions of pathogens and parasites, and help prevent habituation of young animals.
Accordingly, wildlife will be treated by a California licensed veterinarian in a mobile setting that is the same as a “typical” commercial practitioner. This includes a veterinarian-client-patient relationship, maintaining medical records, and practicing in accordance with the prescribed standards.

In order to provide these services that include aseptic surgeries, the minimum standards must be met according to the California Code of Regulations, Title 16, Section 2030(g). Once the mobile practice has been purchased Dr. Pollard as an experienced veterinarian/surgeon will make her availability flexible to assist with injured wildlife. A call would be the best method to schedule and discuss need. We are relying on donations in order to provide services to wildlife in a mobile clinic that the law defines as being used for “small animal domestic pets” but applies to any animal.
Helping animals of all kinds
From surgeries to routine medical care

"My experience with Dr. Holly Pollard was absolutely awesome!! She was so informative, helpful, and thorough in her communications on what to expect prior, during, and after surgery."
Unlike the other surgeons that I had spoken with, I got the feeling that Dr. Pollard-Wright cared specifically about our dog. She focused on him, his comfort, and his recovery. The surgery was flawless.
We're so thankful that we chose Dr. Pollard. She immediately put us at ease and answered our many question thoroughly. Alice's surgery went better than we could've ever expected and more importantly Dr. Pollard carefully guided us through the rehab process.
You will not find a better surgeon for your pet than Dr. Holly Pollard Wright, and you will not find a more compassionate, caring, sensitive person for you as you go through this with your pet than Dr. Holly.
I just wanted to thank you for the great program you have of combining surgery and rehab together to fix both of Jade's legs. He is so much happier running, jumping and doing whatever trouble he can get in to.
Deciding to go ahead with the surgery for her luxating patella was a big decision for us but right from the beginning you filled us with confidence that it was the right thing to do to better her life. There is such a difference now between the way she is and the way she was before surgery and I am so thankful to see her enjoying life comfortably again.
I want to thank you very much for the way in which you performed the double TPLO on my buddy Domino after he blew out both ACLs. The manner in which you performed his surgery was not only professional but also extremely compassionate.
For me, what distinguishes Dr. Pollard is her personality, accessibility, focus on rehabilitation (in-office and at-home rehabilitative care), and sincere desire to do what is in the best interest of my dog.
