Marsha Birdsall
Staff Veterinarian DVM

Dr. Birdsall graduated from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1979 and has been practicing small animal medicine in the Sacramento area since then. She has been both an associate veterinarian and a practice owner. COVID forced her into an early retirement, and she missed her work so much that as soon as she received her vaccines she went to look for a par-time position in a very high quality practice. She found her perfect fit here at VCA American River Animal Hospital. It is wonderful combining her years of experience with the technology, therapeutics and advances of modern medicine. She also serves as a volunteer mammal veterinarian for Sierra Wildlife Rescue. Dr. Birdsall looks forward to helping you and your precious pet have a healthy, happy and long life.
