Dr Matthew Sumners comes to VVI with a ton of practical experience!

Originally from Georgia, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Animal and Dairy Science from University of Georgia. I completed my DVM at Tuskegee University CVM and graduated in 2013. Following graduation, I moved to CA and practiced in Tulare for 9.5 years before joining Valley Veterinarians in 2024.

Growing up on my family’s farm, I developed my love of cattle from my grandfather and have many fond memories working cattle with him. I enjoy working with dairymen and being a part of the team that keeps their herd healthy and profitable. My professional interests include reproductive management, heifer development, and recently embryo transfer.

My wife, Jamie and I have two kids, Luke and Madeline. We enjoy the many outdoor activities that CA has to offer.
