Dr. Jennifer Taylor Partridge is the Less Stress Vet. She founded HouseCalls for Dogs & Cats in 2002 to help the many dogs, cats, and owners who have had stressful experiences at traditional veterinary hospitals.
Dr. Partridge (formerly Dr. Taylor) is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine (DVM, 2001) and of Marshall University (BA, Communications, 1992). She is licensed through the Veterinary Medical Licensing Board of the State of Ohio. Dr. Partridge is a member of numerous professional organizations, including the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association, the Central Ohio Veterinary Medical Association, the Ohio State University Veterinary Medicine Alumni Society, the Delta Chapter of the Society of Phi Zeta (Honor Society of Veterinary Medicine), and the Veterinary Information Network.
Dr. Partridge’s approach to veterinary medicine involves four important facets. First, she is committed to staying up-to-date with the latest medical information and advancements, so that her housecall patients will receive expert medical care. Second, she strives to handle pets gently and lovingly. Third, she recognizes that listening to owner concerns and questions is crucial to understanding the specifics of each patient’s unique situation. And fourth, she explains complex medical situations as clearly as possible, so that owners have all of the information they need to make the best possible decisions for their pets.
In her own home, Dr. Partridge loves her two cats, Lola & Rayman, and misses her late dogs, Delilah and Xavier.
Our HouseCalls staff is comprised of talented and experienced people who are committed to making your pet’s visit both pleasant and productive. They are qualified to answer questions, and skilled at handling dogs and cats gently and safely. Owners are not required to restrain their animals for examinations or procedures.
Chrissy Thomas began working with Dr. Taylor in 2004 during college. After graduating, she knew she couldn’t stand being stuck in an office all day, so she continued working with animals, which she has been doing since 1997. Chrissy lives in Clintonville with her husband, kids, and crew of cats, dogs, reptiles, and fish. She is active in TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) with feral cat colonies. Chrissy loves all animals, but has a special affinity for understanding and working with cats. She is frequently referred to as the “Cat Whisperer.
