Laura Schulte, Receptionist,
As the receptionist for three years, it is my job to receive and welcome clients and their pets. I address their needs and concerns regarding their visit. I enjoy seeing the pets bring their owners to the clinic.
I was raised on a ranch and farm. My primary responsibility was to take care of the horses, dogs, and cats. My family and I share our home with three adorable cats, ages 7 months, 5 years, and 18 years. I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma, with a B.A. in Art. Currently, the subjects are dogs and cats for my paintings. Since I see a lot of them at work this provides inspiration. I enjoy greeting clients and providing a comfortable atmosphere for the animals and their owners. I also like promoting good pet health and care at home. I’m grateful that I have this opportunity to expand my knowledge and experience by working with Dr. Moore and Dr. Benton at South Arlington Animal Clinic.
I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy reading, writing, watching movies, and playing with my cats.
Porter Lowery, Veterinary Assistant
I have been practicing veterinary medicine for the past two years. I recently graduated from Legacy High School in Mansfield. I pride myself on my passion for animals which has stuck with me throughout my entire
life. Some of my hobbies include drawing, playing games, spending time with loved ones, and taking care of my many pets.
Raquel Renteria, Veterinary Technician
I have been working in veterinary medicine for 14 years. I pride myself in creating a bond with the pet and their owner to provide the best treatment. In my free time, I enjoy embarrassing my daughters, hiking, and love being outside and cooking.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart Juan Carlos for 11 years and we have been a couple for a total of 19 years! We have 2 wonderful daughters, Priscilla and Alicia. I have 4 dogs – Penny, Peaches, Memphis & Diesel and 3 cats Trixie, Dobby & Zombie.
Mr. Big, King Cat
Mr. Big wandered up to the clinic about 4 years ago and he quickly stole the hearts of the whole staff. He likes to think that he is the “real boss,” and he is in charge! He loves his staff and long afternoon naps in his bed.
TJ, Clinic Greeter
TJ was born and raised at the clinic. He is the official cat/kitten greeter. He has not met a cat he does not love. He likes long naps wherever it is quiet. His favorite toy is a zip tie, where he tosses it under the shelves so the staff can continually get it for him. His favorite food is all the Temptations in the world!
