Dr. Barney graduated from Colorado State University in 1971. He moved to Fairfield in 1975 and open his own practice with Dr. Russum in 1977. The most rewarding part of his career is saving animals lives. He is widely known for extensive experience with brachycephalic breeds such as bulldogs.
Dr. Barney is partially retired and spends one week a month in clinic performing the specialty surgeries he is widely known for. When not working he spends his time fishing, gardening, bird-watching and taking walks on the beach with his wife near their home in Oregon.
