He received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University. He has a special interest in advanced dentistry and is a member of the American Veterinary Dental Society. His dad, Chad Clark, DVM was his role model. It was working with his Veterinarian father that he learned to serve others and care for animals. After graduation he worked with his father doing mixed animals (large and small) for 8 years. Veterinary medicine was advancing so quickly that he decided to limit his focus to strictly companion animals (cats and dogs). This has given him the opportunity to provide the level of care he knows is available. His primary objective is to add years to your pet's life and life to your pet's years. He truly believes in keeping healthy pets healthy. He is very active in the community.

Shelly Clark, Practice Manager
Shelly has worked with her husband, Dr. Keith Clark, in the Veterinary Profession for over 25 years. Prior to that she worked with other professionals such as dentist, physical therapist, orthodontist and oral surgeons. She was raised with a menagerie of pets including; squirrel monkeys, pigeons, horses, cows, chickens, rabbits, goats, snakes, mice, hamsters and of course cats and dogs. It was natural to marry a man who loved animals too. The Clarks purchased Central Valley Animal Clinic in 1995. We changed the name, remodeled, computerized and haven't stopped making changes since then. The original clinic was built in the 1970's. Many of you may remember the Old Red Barn that use to be next door. A lot has changed over the years but not the quality of the individuals and the families in this area. It has been a pleasure to live and work here. We are so proud to call this home. As you can see this is a family business. We hope that you and your pet will always feel welcome and part of our Veterinary family too.
