In Loving Memory of Dr. Lynn RenoWe regret to inform you that Dr. Lynn Reno has passed away. He played a large role in all of our lives, so we want to thank everyone for their support and loving memories. Below is a note from Dr. Shane Reno, his son.

“Dr. Lynn Reno graduated from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1966, and practiced for a year each in Walla Walla, WA and Salt Lake City, UT, before moving to Bakersfield in 1968, when he purchased the Mt. Vernon Veterinary Hospital.

A total of 25 veterinarians have worked for Dr. Reno over the years, guiding many of them through the profession. I came to the practice in 1994, having graduated from Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He has guided me, taught me many things I would never have learned at a vet school, and helped me learn the importance of listening to my clients, and being perceptive of the nuances my patients convey to me in the tiniest ways.

I will miss him for the rest of my life, but I am pretty sure I will know exactly what he would say in just about any given situation. Thanks to everyone who played a part in our lives over the years.”
