About Me

Mark Klinefelter, DVM

I am persistent, determined, hard working, dependable and my faith sustains me.  Oh, almost forgot, I am also a veterinarian.  That was a long journey.  That journey continues with the creation of PetVetOasis- a site created for YOU!

My main goal is to provide as much practical information so that you can make prudent decisions and enjoy life with your pet.  There is one thing in life that is true.  It is not what you say but how you say it.

Phrasing medical care the right way alleviates much of the hand wringing of pet ownership.  It is this style of communication that I hope you will enjoy and benefit from.  Life is not easy and I don’t think it was meant to be.  We wouldn’t appreciate the good things in life as much.

My undergrad was done where scarlett and gray are king- The Ohio State University.  I spent four long and hard years of professional training in the Dominican Republic.  My life was never boring.  I bought land in Ohio in 1984 with just a rusting muffler sitting on it.

After years of hard work, Northtowne Animal Clinic became successful.  I sold it in 2006.  One chapter in life ended and another began.  My medical practice was like raising a child.  Sooner or later, you are going to have to let it go.

My wife and I reside in Miami, FL.  I retired from practice half way through 2014.  It was the right thing to do.  It has been a true joy creating and designing PetVetOasis.  Living in a year round warm climate has allowed my green thumb to flourish in orchid culture.

Music has always soothed my soul.  I have been playing soprano saxophone for almost 9 years now.  Playing along with the pros on my ipod® gives me great satisfaction.  I hope PetVetOasis provides you with that same type of satisfaction.  The new journey begins.  Let it blossom and flourish for all of us.
