Ron Laughlin, DVMPractice 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', a black boxer mix named 'Jager', and a yorkie mix named 'Jack'. 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.
Brian Hall, DVM
Dr. Hall graduated from Oklahoma State University and has practiced veterinary medicine in Edmond since 1991. Brian has a special interest in small animal surgery.
He has served on the Executive Board of the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association and with the Admissions Committee of the OSU School of Veterinary Medicine. Brian and his family are members of Faith Bible Church.
Dr. Hall and his wife Beth are kept busy with their two girls, Molly and Sarah. Family time is often spent outdoors camping, fishing, boating, and playing soccer and tennis. Their Labrador Retriever, 'Max' often accompanies them.
Having owned and cared for a variety of pets, from hamsters to horses, his choice of veterinary medicine seemed a natural match. Dr. Hall says that 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 am a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners. I also enjoy treating dogs and spend a lot of my day taking care of them as well.
I have four cats of my own, Fudge, Peanut, Serena, and Mozart. I also have a yorki-poo, Roy, and an adorable chocolate chihuahua named Godiva who has her own wardrobe.
I have one son, Noah, who is at OU. When I am not working I spend most of my time taking care of my own pets, doing yard work, and going to Lake Eufala with my boyfriend.
Mendy Laughlin, DVMPractice Manager
I was born and raised in Woodward, Oklahoma where I grew up surrounded by horses, sheep, goats, and various assortments of small animals. From a very young age I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. Working in a veterinary clinic while attending high school fueled my passion even more. I was accepted into Oklahoma State University and received my B.S. in Animal Science in 2003 before going on to graduate with my DVM from OSU in 2006. Before joining Danforth Animal Hospital in September 2007, I worked at a small and mixed animal practice in Stillwater for a year. Veterinary medicine is a very rewarding career for me. I enjoy every day I spend with animals and their owners! You never know what adventures each day might bring!
We live in Edmond with our twin daughters, Renna and Reagan. We have a quarter horse named Payday. We also have two cats, and a Maltese named Laney. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, horseback riding, and spending time with my family and friends.

I was raised here in Edmond, Oklahoma. I began working at Danforth Animal Hospital in the summer of 2003 as a technician. I graduated from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2009. My wife and I reside in Edmond with our twin daughters Renna and Reagan.
Our pets include a Maltese named Laney, two cats, and our horse Payday. I enjoy working with companion animals and have had many rewarding experiences with them here in the hospital. My hobbies include carpentry, fishing, hunting and almost any DIY project that comes up around the house. My family and I take pride in our Edmond community. We consider ourselves blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve the community in such a capacity, and our hope is that our service will make it a better place.
