About Us

Dr. Martin was a associate and partner in Large Animal Veterinary Associates, located in El Cajon, California, for nearly 30 years before beginning Martin Equine Veterinary Practice in 2019. While the name has changed the person has not and the level of care you have come to appreciate from Dr. Martin will seamlessly continue for our clients.


Our hope is to grow MEVP into a multi-doctor practice within the year with the emphasis on including chiropractic and acupuncture therapy to the practice.

Mission Statement:

Our mission statement is simple. Treat our patients like they are our horses and our clients like close friends. We strive to provide quality, progressive and compassionate care to our patients. With all successful relationships, communication is Hallmark. We work diligently to communicate and educate our clients at every turn. We are committed to being caring and approachable.

Dr. Martin is a native of San Diego, growing up in the mountain town of Julian and graduating from Julian High School. From high school Dr. Martin attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Lincoln College New Zealand studying Animal Science. He then proceeded to U.C. Davis for his veterinary degree,

graduating in 1988. Following graduation Dr. Martin practiced in the rural town of Alpine in a mixed animal practice before joining Large Animal Veterinary Associates (LAVA) in 1989.
