Four Paws Animal Clinic opened its doors in January 2002. After working for several years as an associate veterinarian, Dr. McKelroy realized that true freedom to provide the highest quality medicine would only come by opening her own practice. Dr. McKelroy started with a staff of 2 in a 1,500 square foot shopping center space, but it was clear that the practice would outgrow that facility soon. In 2004, an already full-service Four Paws Animal Clinic became Four Paws Animal Hospital. As more technology was brought in-house, it became clear that “animal clinic” conveyed the wrong impression about a hospital that offered complete surgical and medical services including a complete lab, x-ray, endoscopy, ultrasound, and dentistry. In March 2007, we were able to move into our current, free-standing, 4,900 square foot facility and currently have over 20 employees. This move allowed for expansion of our veterinary services, increased our boarding capacity and created space for a full-time groomer. In the summer of 2013 we were happy to open our new 2,000 square foot boarding facility.
