Progressive Equine Welcomes New Clients
At Progressive Equine, we take a whole animal approach to everything we do. We don't just provide medical care; we provide comprehensive, well-rounded equine care, taking the best from Western and Eastern medicines to give our horse patients the best treatment possible for their individual needs.
With combined experience of more than 40 years, our practice has focused on both performance horses and pleasure horses. Because we are an ambulatory service, we are able to visit our horse patients in their own settings, enabling us to see them where they live, which gives us a better view of their particular needs and how we can be of the best service to them.
We have three staff veterinarians who bring a wealth of experience to equine veterinary medicine. Dr. Kate Barber, a graduate of Ontario Veterinary College in 2019, completed an internship in southern California at San Luis Rey Equine Hospital. She focused on sports medicine and rehabilitation and loves preventative medicine. Dr. Brad Dygert graduated from the U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1986. He completed an internship and surgical training in central Kentucky, and then began practicing in Ventura County in 1994. Dr. Linda Rydgig also graduated from the U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1994 and, in addition to performing traditional veterinary medicine, is a certified veterinary acupuncturist with years of experience treating competitive sport horses.
