Once upon a time, back in 1978, Mannford Animal clinic was founded. We quickly outgrew our original location and moved into our current building in the late 90’s. A couple generations of doctors and a few million dog treats later, we currently have 3 doctors and 6 supporting staff to keep the doctors sane! Our staff is made of Oklahoma locals that gives us a unique blend of country values and high quality medicine. We offer up-to-date surgical procedures, boarding, and veterinary care all wrapped up in a classic Oklahoma accent!

Daisy & Abby
Daisy (left) is a 3-year-old Yorkie & Abby (right) is a 10-year-old Yorkie cross. Together they are affectionately known as the “town criers”. More effective than any doorbell, they keep us on guard for enemy intruders and alert the premises every time somebody enters. Don’t let their brave facades fool you though; their barks is much worse than their bite (they really don’t have a bite)!
Creede (to the right) is the coolest of our clinic pets. He is a Great Pyrenees – Labradoodle mix and is going through a bit of a rebellious phase right now but we are pretty sure he will grow out of it. It is almost time to celebrate his 1st birthday!
Kitana, or “Kit” for short, is the newest member of our clinic zoo. She is a mini Australian Shepherd. She is only 6 months old but she keeps up with the big dogs! She is very generous and is always willing to helps somebody finish their food (with or without permission). Creede and she are best friends and are usually causing a ruckus in the backyard.
Count is the only cat of our crew. He showed up one day at Dr. Boomer’s house and just became part of the clinic! Don’t let his cuteness fool you, he thinks he is a big dog. He enjoys chasing the clinic dogs around and generally wreaking havoc.
