Dr. Michelle Thornberry

Medical Director

Dr. Thornberry has always had the desire to work with and around animals in some capacity which is what drew her to Veterinary medicine. Her favorite part of being a veterinarian is providing people with knowledge or comfort that they did not have before they brought their pet to see her. She enjoys forming positive relationships on a daily basis (with a pet, with a person, or with a group of people), and strives hard to achieve practical solutions for the cases that come to her. Her specialties include preventive care, dentistry, and soft tissue surgery.
