Dr. Alicia Findora, DVM
Dr. Findora grew up in Clarkston, Michigan, but spent as much time as possible in the barns of Oxford and Metamora, riding and driving horses. She decided at the age of 4 to become a veterinarian and never wavered from this goal. Dr. Findora graduated with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. After graduation, she completed a one-year surgery and medicine internship in Aurora, Oregon. She continued to practice for two additional years in Oregon at a high-volume small animal general practice. After three years away, the call of family was too strong and Dr. Findora moved back home in 2011. After relocating Dr. Findora took up the challenge of emergency medicine working all hours of the day and night seeing exciting medicine and surgery cases. After 4 years in emergency, she returned to general practice (and a more normal schedule) by opening Fox Run Animal Hospital in 2015. Dr. Findora focuses on high-quality medicine and surgery centered on the needs of the patient and their family. Her special interests include client education, soft tissue surgery, comparative ophthalmology (eyes), and backyard chickens.
Outside of the office Dr. Findora enjoys horses, hiking, camping, gardening and music. Dr. Findora has an Australian Shepherd named Jackson who spends most days in the office.

Public Relations Manager
Molly was born in 2005 and grew up as a pampered barn cat at one of our client’s farms. In 2016 Molly decided to retire from the barn life and become a house cat. Unfortunately, her owner was allergic to cats and could not bring her inside. Coincidentally we were looking for a new Public Relations Manager and she happily joined our team. Molly can be found most days supervising from her bed on the front counter. She specializes in sitting on checkbooks and drooling while enjoying her rubs. Molly has been diagnosed with a primary lung tumor. Fortunately, the tumor has grown slowly and she has been maintaining well on prednisolone, though this has made her even more plump.
Tyson was found as a stray kitten and presented to us in 2020 with ruptured corneas in both eyes and a severe upper respiratory infection. Dr. Findora has a soft spot for grey cats and eye cases, so took up the challenge to get the <1lb kitten back to health. The right eye was too damaged and required immediate surgery to remove it. Happily, the left eye responded to medications and healed leaving only a small scar that is still visible. Tyson is now comfortable and has adequate vision. Tyson now enjoys assisting all members of our team in their duties, as well as regularly greeting clients on the front desk. Tyson’s special interests include giving hugs, playing with toys and lounging in the sun.
