Edmond’s Visiting Vet

Dr. David NewsomeIt’s an interesting job being a
veterinarian. Dr. David J. Newsome spends a lot of time on the floor.  “Dogs and cats love attention, so I get on
the floor with them and relate to them as individuals,” said Dr. Newsome. “Each
one has a personality and temperament, and if they are treated right the first
time, that pet is comfortable the next time.”

Dr. Newsome fills a unique role
in Edmond as the Visiting Veterinarian. It’s a business he started 31 years
ago, traveling to homes to treat animal patients.

“I provide home service to
shut-ins, to people without transportation, and to busy parents who can’t get

provide state-of-the-art care while maintaining an old-fashioned, personalized
approach. Building relationships beyond the exam room is imperative to the care
Dr. Newsome offers. “I’m now treating third-generation clients—the
grandchildren of my original clients, so I really see myself as part of the

Having had great success with
his in-house service, Dr. Newsome opened the full-service All Care Pet Hospital

offers boarding for his clients, giving their pets a comfortable place to stay
with hands-on care while they are away.

Being a veterinarian is still a
dream come true for Dr. Newsome because he loves working with the animals. “I
don’t call myself a pet whisperer, but God has given me a sixth sense about
being with and reading animals. I do my best to put them at ease. It’s also
about establishing good communication with the pet owner.”

As spring approaches, Dr.
Newsome encourages pet owners to start thinking about preventing parasites that
emerge as the weather warms up. He also offers deeply discounted rates on puppy
and kitten vaccine programs in order to get animals off to a healthy

“Helping owners understand how
to care for their pet, and communicate with that animal on its level—that’s my
passion,” Dr. Newsome said. “I enjoy the rapport I develop with the clients who
invite me into their homes. I’ve worked in all types of houses and in all
rooms. I’ve coaxed animals out of closets…from under front porches…out from
under beds….” Yes,
