Main Content

Mid-Valley Veterinary Hospital was purchased by Dr. Jerry Aguiar on July 1, 1981. The staff consisted of a receptionist and one part-time kennel person. The first receptionist was the one who painted the four murals throughout the office. Throughout the years this office has had the privilege of employing some extraordinary people – many of which are still occasionally seen at our office.

Dr. Michael Karle started as an associate veterinarian in August of 2001 and became a partner with Dr. Aguiar in January of 2003.  Dr. Karle purchased the practice from Dr. Aguiar on September 1, 2013.  Our practice has evolved to serving our community needs in companion and dairy/beef animal medicine.  We try very hard to distinguish ourselves in the community as hard working, compassionate, clean, organized, fair, and on the cutting edge of technology.   We work hard but make a real effort to enjoy ourselves at the same time.


Jerry Aguiar, D.V.M.

Mike Karle, D.V.M.

Dr. Karle graduated from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 after completing a Bachelor of Science degree.  He then moved to Tulare, CA and joined a dairy cattle exclusive practice for two years before moving to Orland.  Dr. Karle specializes in dairy and beef cattle but enjoys working on any food-producing animal.

Dr. Karle is involved in many veterinary and non-veterinary related activities.

He has been the Chair of the California Veterinary Medical Association’s Agriculture Committee since 2005 and is a member of several of their other committees.  He is a contributor to the teaching programs at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and CSU Chico and enjoys having pre-veterinary and veterinary students during internships and externships.  He is a member of national veterinary and animal organizations including: AABP, ADSA, AVMA, NMC and SFT.

Outside of work, he is a volunteer leader in the county 4-H program and a local school board member.  He enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, especially doing outdoor activities and improving their property.
