Dr. Janice Thomas

Dr. Janice Thomas left Cleveland, Ohio, and headed south for warmer weather and less snow. She completed her medical studies at Tuskegee University, School of Veterinary Medicine (Alabama) in 2012.

Since then, she has practiced in Florida, where she adopted her dog Desi (Arnez) and now lives in North Carolina. She continues to work in a small animal, general practice hospital. Although a “big-city-girl” at heart, she has developed an appreciation for North Carolina's relaxed nature.

When not working, you can find Dr. Thomas rehabbing a vintage find, shopping for shoes, or meeting people, ready to share some good news!

“My passion for pets started when I was young, after I noticed a bird hobbling, in an empty parking lot. The wing of the bird was injured, so I ran home with the bird in hand, dedicated to nursing it back to health. At age 4, I told my family, ‘I am going to be an animal doctor!’”
