Susan Mack DVM
I Received my first college degree in Physcial Therapy from the University of Oklahoma. In 1987 I obtained my DVM from Oklahoma State University. Before attending college I worked for my family on a custom wheat harvesting crew traveling from Texas to Montana every May through the end of August. My first job as a veterinarian was in Davis, Oklahoma. It was primarily a large animal practice (80% cattle & 20% everything else) and covered a 50 mile radius including Arbuckle Wilderness.
Reason for Becoming a Veterinarian: "I grew up on a farm in northern Oklahoma with cattle, horses, pigs, chickens, dogs, and cats. My dad did a lot of his own "veterinary work" but we did call out the vet on major cases. Our vet was Dr. Harry James, whom many of you may know. It was very fascinating to watch him work. He seemed to be able to just look at an animal and know what was wrong. I wanted to do that too. Thanks Dr. James. I have never regretted my decision."
Most Interesting Day at Work: "A tie between working on a baby black rhino for Arbuckle Wilderness and attempting to repair a pig with a uterine prolapse.
Specialties: "I don't see myself as having any specialties but I enjoy working cattle."
Pets: I currently have 5 dogs, 6 cats (2 are my mom's), 2 horses, and 5 cows with calves.
Michelle Moser DVM
I received a Bachelor's degree from USAO, a Master's Degree from OU, and my DVM at OSU. Before becoming a veterinarian I worked in medical research for human medicine at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. I worked on blood clotting, aging research, cardiac isclemia, and reperfusion injury. As a veterinarian I have worked at Banfield and Cimarron Veterinary Hospital before coming to Thunderbird Veterinary Hospital. When I'm not working I enjoy going on hikes, reading, and cooking.
Reason for Becoming a Veterinarian: I love animals and wished to help them and their people.
Most Interesting Day at Work: Coming Soon...
Specialties: Preventative medicine and Ophthalmology
Pets: I currently have 2 dogs, a Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix named Butters and a terrier/Schnauzer/Shih Tzu mix named Stan Lee, and a calico cat named Sushi.
I chose this line of work because I love animals. Growing up I would always say I wanted to be a doggie doctor. My first pet was a lab/chow mix named Bear. I used to dress him in baby clothes and push him in my baby stroller. Now I have 3 dogs; a lab/boxer mix named Gracie, and 2 Australian Sheperds name Dually and Moose. I have 2 cats named Rocky and Oliver and 2 ducks. In the past I have worked as a manager of KFC and a leasing agent. When I'm not working I enjoy playing with my dogs, being outside, and fishing.
I got into this field because of my love of animals. My first pet was a dog named Lassie. At home I have 8 dogs with which I share my love of the outdoors by taking long walks. I also have pigeons. In the past I have done nursing and I was a certified saftey trainer. In my off hours I work with the celtic Corgi Rescue.
I have worked as an EMT, housekeeper, and waitress before coming to Thunderbird. My favorite animals are cats. I currently have four. My most interesting pet so far was a buffalo.
My favorite animals are horses and I enjoy playing the guitar. So far my most interesting day at work involved a c-section on an English Bulldog. I live with an Anatolian Sheppard (Gunner), an Australian Blue Heeler (Shelby), three cats (Prince, Missy, and Bella), and two chickens (Sunny and Sassy).
I have two cats Finnegan a Siamese tabby and Winnie a dilute calico. Winnie is my most interesting pet because she is part dog. She likes to play fetch, have her belly rubbed, and sit with you when you're eating. My first pet was a golden retriever named Susie. She was the sweetest girl and a gentle soul.
My first pet is a cat named bugs and my most interesting pet is Catrick Swayze, he likes to spin in chairs. My favorite animal is the leopard. When not working I enjoy kayaking.
