Mara Franz, DVM
Dr. Mara Franz joined Madera Veterinary Center in July of 2011. Born and raised in Roseville California (just outside of Sacramento), Dr. Franz completed her undergraduate and Veterinary degrees at UC Davis. Shortly after graduating in 2011, Dr. Franz moved to Madera and joined MVC as an associate veterinarian. The best part of her job is getting to know the MVC clients and their pets, and giving all of them the best possible care. On a typical day Dr. Franz sees clients and their pets for wellness exams, treats sick or injured pets, and performs surgery. She enjoys every day at MVC because each day is different and a challenge, and she is always learning something new.
While growing up, Dr. Franz loved helping animals, and always had a stray or baby animal to care for. Dr. Franz can't imagine doing anything else besides being a veterinarian. Married to her husband Duskin, Dr. Franz has dogs, horses, cats, numerous chickens, turkeys, and goats (her favorite) . While not at MVC, Dr. Franz enjoys horseback riding, reading, gardening, and spending time outdoors.
