Danforth Animal Hospital began in 1981 as the "Downtown Animal Clinic," in a little red brick building at the corner of 3rd and Broadway in Edmond. The staff consisted of Dr. Ron Laughlin and his wife Nancy. By 1986 the practice had outgrown that small building and was moved to the current location at the corner of Danforth and Chowning. To better meet the needs of our clients and their pets, the new building was designed and constructed specifically as a veterinary hospital. It received a National Merit Award from the Veterinary Economics Magazine hospital design competition in 1987. Dr. Brian Hall joined the practice in 1991 followed by Dr. Donna Woods in 1997. During that period of time the staff has grown from two employees to fifteen

Our team philosophy is simple. We endeavor to treat every client the way we would like to be treated and to treat every pet as if it were our own.

Our mission is to strive for excellence in veterinary care. This involves a commitment to providing ethical, high quality, and compassionate medical and surgical services. We are devoted to fostering the human/animal bond. We are dedicated to excellence in client service by being present for our clients and providing care in an efficient manner. We aspire to be leaders and innovators in our approach to veterinary care. This includes providing a stimulating, challenging, and well-equipped work environment. We also encourage our staff to find fun in their workday while excelling as the professionals that they are.

Danforth Animal Hospital Staff Profiles

Ron Laughlin, DVM, Practice Owner

I grew up in El Reno, OK just one block from an animal hospital. I spent a lot of time there and eventually became an employee while in high school. My involvement with the veterinarians, patients and owners provided the inspiration for me to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. I have never regretted my choice. I love my job!

I received a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from OSU in 1980. My wife, Nancy, is an elementary school teacher. We moved to Edmond in 1981 with our daughter Lindsay and our son Adam. I have been in private practice in Edmond since that time. We have a tricolor longhaired Dachshund named "Dax" and a black boxer mix named "Jager". I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve the terrific people of this community and especially their pets.

I am a member of the American Veterinary Dental Society and have special interest in pet dentistry. I also have a variety of hobbies and outside interests. I am a private pilot and a member of "Angel Flight" which helps to transport patients for medical care. I am also a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association and am building a home-built airplane in my spare time. Nancy and I enjoy traveling on our motorcycle, as well as skiing and boating when we have the opportunity. We run and bike for exercise and participate in some local events. We also support OSU athletics and attend many of the games and events.

Oklahoma State University

Brian Hall, DVM

I graduated from Oklahoma State University and have practiced veterinary medicine in Edmond since 1991. I have a special interest in small animal surgery.

I have served on the Executive Board of the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association and with the Admissions Committee of the OSU School of Veterinary Medicine. I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association. My most rewarding service is serving as a Deacon at Heritage Presbyterian Church.

My wife Beth and I are kept busy with two girls, Molly and Sarah. Family time is often spent outdoors camping, fishing, and boating. Our Labrador Retriever, "Misty" often accompanies us.

Having owned and cared for a variety of pets, from hamsters to horses, my choice of veterinary medicine seemed a natural match. There are few things as rewarding as taking a sick or injured pet and helping to restore it to health.

Donna Woods, DVM

I have always loved animals and I knew I wanted a career that allowed me to spend a lot of time with them.

I have lived in Oklahoma all my life. I graduated from Durant High School and received a Bachelors degree with Honors from the University of Oklahoma. I graduated from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995 at the top of my class. I worked at a small animal practice in Oklahoma City for two years before joining Danforth Animal Hospital in 1997.

My special interest is cats, and I try to keep up on the latest in feline medicine. I seem to be able to relate with cats very well, even some that many people find difficult to handle.

I have five cats of my own, Sapphire, Tica, Q, Fudge, and Peanut.  I have a retired racing greyhound, Breve, a yorki-poo, Roy, and an adorable chocolate chihuahua named Godiva who has her own wardrobe.

I have one son, Noah, who was born in 1996. When I am not working I spend most of my time taking care of my own pets, keeping up with my son's activities, doing yard work, and going to Lake Eufala with my boyfriend.
