Dr. Stephanie McClure with her family.

Dr. McClure grew up in Delphos, Ohio where her parents were both teachers.  She graduated from the University of Findlay in 1993, with a degree in biology and environmental science.  After graduation, she worked for private industry and the state in the environmental field for a few years.  There she met her husband Mitch, a native from the state up north (despite this, she married him anyway!).  After a few years, she decided her true passion was working with animals and helping to enhance the human-animal bond.  She obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University in 2003.  Following graduation, she began working as an associate veterinarian at the hospital where she had worked part-time for 7 years.  After 5 years as an associate, Dr. McClure became a relief veterinarian and manager for Lighthouse Veterinary Services in Westerville, Ohio, an invaluable experience when it comes to being a business owner.  It also gave her a unique perspective on veterinary medicine and the veterinary community as a whole.

She and her husband have been residents of the Bexley community since 2003.  She has grown to love this unique community and all it has to offer!   When not in the clinic, she spends most of her time with her husband, Mitch and their 3 children, Kaelen, Delaney and Graeme.   When possible, the family enjoys spending time together and traveling to warmer weather and the beach!  They have a terrier mix named “Pogo,” a frequent neighborhood friendly face (except to other furry critters and the mail carrier) and a guinea pig.  In her free time, she enjoys running, watching movies, and most of all relaxing!

Her professional interests include dentistry, surgery, internal medicine, and animal behavior.  She strives to provide compassionate care and a straight-forward, honest approach with a trusted and gentle touch.  She understands the importance of client communication and believes in spending time on client education and involving clients in the care of their pets as much as possible.  Dr. McClure looks forward to meeting new clients and their pets and hopes to bring a valuable service to the community!
