Our History

In 1960, Dr. Bill Clark founded Clark Animal Hospital as a single-doctor, house-call practice. In the1970’s, Dr. Clark was joined by two of his younger brothers, Drs. Thom and John Clark. With three veterinarian brothers in the practice, the tradition began to refer to the doctors by their first names. Over time, the hospital grew to five staff veterinarians.

In 1997, longtime associates Dr. Tim Pennington and Dr. Jeff Coggan purchased the hospital and made it what it is today. Dr. Coggan is still practicing part-time, but Dr. Pennington has retired. Dr. Cole is currently the managing veterinarian on staff.
