Dr. Patti Maness (DVM) graduated Texas A & M 1981, and practiced in south Texas for 20 years. Dr. Maness' current practice is south of Oklahoma City, and consists of small animal and exotics which includes alpacas. She is a member of the American Association of Small Ruminant Veterinary Practitioners (AARSP).  Dr. Maness is licensed in both Texas and Oklahoma.  She is the owner of Bowtie Ranch and Alpaca Farm.   She has owned and shown alpacas since 2006.  She brings a unique perspective as both an owner and veterinarian.  Dr. Maness has pursued advanced education courses regarding alpacas at Kansas State with Drs. David Anderson and Meredyth Jones, as well as Oregon State with Dr. Chris Cebra, and just last year at U. C. Davis.  Dr. Maness is a TXOLAN supporter and member, and will be our on-site veterinarian in case her services are needed on a fee basis.  

Her services will be available on Friday in case of health certificate (CVI) or microchip issues.  Re-issuing a health certificate will be $25.00.  The ARI certificate and BVD by PCR results (lab and date info) will be required.  A Bio-Therm Life microchip can be implanted for $25.00 if needed.

In addition, she will will be bringing her ultrasound equipment and can perform examinations at a discounted cost.  You will need to contact her to make proper arrangements to access this service as there may be special times or requirements needed in order to avoid interference with event activities and rules.
