Dr. McCormick graduated from WSU in 2013. She loves science and medicine and the puzzle pieces that make up disease. She is especially interested in internal medicine and ophthalmology, but every aspect of small animal medicine excites her. Her favorite thing about being a vet is waking up each day knowing it will be different from the last and that each day brings a new opportunity to make a difference in a pet’s life. Her goal with every patient is education and understanding for the client and a happy outcome for the pet. Alex’s family includes her husband (also a veterinarian named Alex), her young daughter Charlie, two dogs, Archie and Duke, and one cat named Mercedes.

Mr. Lenny has been with us since 2016. He was found wandering down by the Spokane Jail. Some kind men down at the jail put up flyers and used to feed and water him until winter came, then he was brought to us. We were looking for a home  for him but we all fell in love with his great personality and decided to keep him with us. Most days he hangs out in the back on the dryer or up front on the keyboard. One of his favorite things to do is make sure the girls are doing their job at the receptionist desk.

Henry’s story started on a cold, dark, and wet night. One of our loving clients found him on the side of the road under a pile of leaves and took him in. First thing the client’s wife said was no more cats, so Henry made a trip down to our office as a tiny little kitten that fit in the palm of our hands. He was so dirty and covered in fleas, after we cleaned him up we found a home for him and then he was off to the next chapter of his life, but he was too rambunctious for his new owner and came back to live with us. He is our junk yard cat that loves to eat anything he can find. Now days he’s either sitting at the front desk to greet clients when you come in or you may find him waiting in the exam room with you while you are waiting for a doctor.
