After practicing veterinary medicine for many years, doctors Nori Warren and Tracy Wales knew what they needed to find fulfillment in their careers. It was really quite simple. They were doctors who wanted to practice up-to-date high quality medicine; they were women who wanted to compassionately care for their patients and clients; and they wanted a well-trained, intelligent and friendly support staff with the same goals. “We wanted to practice medicine without the distractions of boarding and grooming. We are doctors and want to stick to doctoring.” says Dr. Wales. Adds Dr. Warren, “We have great relationships with many grooming and boarding facilities in town to whom we are very comfortable sending our clients.”
As for caring for their patients and clients, Dr. Warren thinks it is important to know them personally. She believes it helps her assist them in making decisions concerning their pets’ healthcare. “It also makes our jobs more fun and fulfilling. We enjoy catching up with clients during their pets’ appointments.” says Dr. Wales.
Both doctors practiced in the area for many years before opening Four Paws Animal Clinic and drew on their prior experiences when planning and designing their clinic. The front areas are bright, colorful, friendly and clean. The hospital area resembles a physician’s office or human hospital with a fully loaded surgical suite, digital X-ray room, dental suite with digital dental radiography, and a lab with state-of-the-art blood analysis machines, microscopes and centrifuges.
The clinic offers appointments as well as convenient drop-off service at no additional charge. They are open 8 to 6 weekdays and 9 to 12 on Saturdays. The doctors are very aware of the troubled economic times and offer great care at reasonable and fair prices. They also offer discounts for military, senior citizens and multi-pet households.
Four Paws Animal Clinic is located at 23 Forest Lake Place, just off of Forest Drive behind Tuesday Morning.
