Talented. Caring. Driven. The team at Animal Care Clinic believes in creating a better life for you and your pet.
Dr. Brian was raised in Bedford. He attended Purdue University where he majored in Biochemistry, and continue on to study at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. He then graduated in 1983. That same year, he married his high school sweetheart. Returning home to open the Animal Care Clinic with Dr. Julie, he applied his experience and training to provide compassionate care for each of his patients.
Dr. Brian has an adventurous side and enjoys scuba diving and traveling. Some of his most memorable travels include trips to Ireland, Russia, and Caribbean Islands. He also obtained his private pilot’s license with several hours of acrobatic training. He is most proud of his two children, who are both now enrolled in their respective colleges and pursuing their own educational dreams.
His animal children include three cats and three dogs – two of which are very active Border Collies.

A native of Lawrence County, Dr. Julie has always had a heart for animals. She grew up showing Quarter Horses and enjoyed 4-H for many years. In 1985, she received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University.
Julie and Brian then opened the Animal Care Clinic. For a while, she took a hiatus from daily practices in order to home school their two children. When she returned to full time practice, she brought additional training and certification in Medical Veterinary Acupuncture to the practice, as well as Traditional Chinese Veterinary Herbal Therapies. Dr. Julie loves the opportunity to share her passion for acupuncture and herbal treatment options with her patients.
“I feel so blessed by the opportunity to share the additional treatment options available with acupuncture and herbal therapies. These treatments complement Dr. Brian’s training in physical therapy modalities and it’s exciting to bring these options to our patients.” –Dr. Julie
I was raised in Loogootee Indiana. I never had any siblings, and animals were always my best friends and play mates. I was always bringing home animals that I found that needed care. I was able to turn this passion into a career by studying veterinary medicine. I graduated from Purdue University with a bachelors in animal science. I then went on an adventure to veterinary school by attending Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. Ross University is located on the island of St. Kitts and Nevis, in the West Indies. I graduated from Ross University in 2018. Since then I have been practicing small animal medicine. During this time I felt that I needed to do more for my patients. This has led me to continue my education at the Chi Institute for acupuncture. I am very excited to start this journey to continue my education in Eastern medicine.
I still reside in Loogootee with my husband Jared. We have a large family of dogs, cats, goats and donkeys. In our spare time we enjoy spending time outdoors, cooking and traveling. Our favorite places to travel are Maine and North Carolina. We also volunteer our time at our local humane society, where we have adopted some of our animals from.
