Meet the Doctors
David R. Carter, DVM
My Philosophy: “Your pets deserve the same comprehensive, dependable medical care as anyone else in your family. My goal has always been to provide exactly that, and to do this with a real sense of concern and caring. In the 21-plus years since founding this medical center, I still follow that same goal. I want you to be completely satisfied with the medical attention your dog or cat receives, but it’s really about helping your pet live a happy, healthy and active life.”

Dana M. Graham, DVM
My Philosophy: “My three-year-old asked me the other night why people want to become doctors, and I answered him quickly … I grew up knowing that I have a special connection to animals, and I love to help people. I knew from an early age that I wanted to be an ‘animal doctor’ and that has never changed. Pets play a special role in our lives, and their love and affection parallel to none. It is my commitment to you to keep your pet healthy and able to provide this love to you and your family for as long as it’s able, and to keep your bond cohesive.”
DVM: Ontario Veterinary College, Ontario, Canada
Member: American Veterinary Medical Association, Indiana Veterinary Medical Association, Central Indiana Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, past president of CIVMA (local veterinary association)
My Goals: “It is important to listen to you, the pet owner. We glean so much information from what you tell us, more so than your pet itself! I look forward to meeting and speaking to you about any pressing issues or concerns that you have for your four- legged family members!”
Special Interests: Geriatrics, nutrition and weight management, cardiology, behavior and endocrinology.
