The Vets of My Zoo Animal Hospital

Dr. Debbie Leach, DVM

Dr. Debbie Leach, DVM:

Dr. Debbie opened My Zoo on the north side of Columbia in 2006.

A life-long animal lover (with dogs, cats, horses and livestock on her extended family's farm), she has wanted to be a veterinarian since childhood.

Her dreams materialized in 1998 when she got her degree from the College of Veterinary Medicine here in Columbia and in 2006 she opened My Zoo Animal Hospital.

Dr. Debbie's philosophy is that her vet clinic should be a happy, friendly and
pleasant place for pets and their owners. Prices are kept reasonable even though
she invests in the latest veterinary and medical technology.

Dr. Debbie was featured in the following article in the Columbia Business Times,
