Dr. Fielding attended college at Harvard University where he rode for the equestrian team (jumping). He attended veterinary school at the University of California, Davis where he was classmates with both Dr. Catherine Jacobs and Dr. Jason Errico. Dr. Fielding then completed a large animal internship at Texas A&M University. After returning to California, he completed board certification in both the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care as well as the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. Fielding began working at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center in 2003 and is currently one of the owners along with Dr. Diana Stolba and Dr. Catherine Jacobs.

Dr. Fielding has continued riding throughout his life. In addition to the college equestrian team, he completed the 100 mile Tevis Cup at age 17 and then again in 2010. Dr. Fielding currently rides a couple of days each week but always wishes that he could spend more time in the saddle.

Professionally, Dr. Fielding is dedicated to research and learning in the veterinary profession. He has over 30 research publications on topics including electrolyte and fluid therapy, emergency medicine, endurance horses, and neonatal foals. He is the co-editor of Equine Fluid Therapy, the only textbook focused on fluid and electrolytes in horses. Dr. Fielding is currently pursuing an MBA through the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Fielding’s goal is to bring high quality veterinary medicine to as many horses as possible.
