Dr. Doug Hardy

I am originally from Joplin, MO and therefore I consider Southwest Missouri my home.  I am married and I enjoy canoeing and hiking although I never seem to have the time.  I started James River Animal Hospital in the summer of 1985.  We were the first practice in the region with a true interest in caring for birds as well as dogs and cats and soon expanded to other exotics.  I greatly enjoy caring for pets and value developing bonds with them.

I was raised on a working farm in Southwest Missouri.  My earliest memories are of interacting with cows, horses, and puppies (a present from an Uncle).  I enjoy bike riding and knitting in my free time.  Over the last 15 years, while working at James River Animal Hospital, I have bee privileged to care for a vast variety of species.  I believe prevention is the key to a healthy animal.

I was born in St. Louis, Mo and grew up in Springfield and the surrounding area.  My fondest memories of my childhood were living on our family farm.  I am married and have 2 wonderful children.  I love spending time with my family and traveling as well as camping, hiking, and baking cupcakes.  I have always had a passion for animals and feel very blessed to be able to work in the veterinary industry.  I look forward to meeting you and your pets.

Hi, I'm Emily.  I've worked at JRAH for approximately 7 years and have loved every day.  There's always something new to learn, which I adore.  I have a Chihuahua named Apollo, whom I love more than anything.  I am a photographer and cinematographer and a huge nerd when it comes to space and astrophysics.  My favorite movie is Apollo 13, which my dog is named after.
