Beth Lorensen DVM
We are blessed beyond measure and ecstatic to welcome Dr. Beth Lorensen to the Community Pet Care clinic as Medical Director and head veterinarian. Dr. Lorensen is a 1997 graduate of The Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine and brings a wide scope of experience and education along with her. She has been an integral part of private practices, emergency medicine, and acadamia which has allowed to develop an unmatched skill set to benefit all the pets of Northwest Ohio. When Dr. Lorensen is not caring for the wonderful patients who visit us she dotes on her loving husband of 17 years and two young, energetic sons. As if that were not enough she also has a great menagerie of pets to help keep her sane; dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, goats, and alpacas. We have absolutely been given a gift in Dr. Lorensen and know you will feel the same way as soon as you get to meet her too!

At Community Pet Care Clinic we only let the best of the best take care of your pets, that’s why we are so happy to introduce Brittany to you as one of our elite technician team members. Brittany has been a technician for three years, starting her career in Pennsylvania and then coming back home to the shores of Lake Erie. She has shown a great passion for caring for and helping the pets entrusted to us, her enthusiasm is contagious, and her smile will brighten even the dreariest of days. When Brittany is not here jumping in wherever she is needed she generously cares for the pets at Island Safe Harbor Pet Sanctuary. On the rare occasion she gets some time to herself, she enjoys spending it in a boat on the lake with her three adorable canine kids. We are so blessed to include Brittany into our family and hope you will come find out for yourself what a wonderful soul and dear heart she is.
We are very excited to welcome Patti to our Community Pet Care family! She has jumped in with both feet and made herself invaluable with her quick wit, caring heart, and helpful personality. Patti brings over 30 years of veterinary assisting and reception work to our team. We wonder what we did without her. When Patti is not rescuing us she loves to spend time on her farm with her three horses, a pony, four rabbits, an amazon parrot, six chickens, four beloved canine friends and a couple kitties. She has a deep passion for horses and competing in Western Pleasure as well and English riding competitions. Many fortunate children have benefitted from her wisdom and encouragement as a 4-H mentor. Patti is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside and we can’t wait for you to come in and meet her.

Jen’s beautiful smile and happy face will greet you upon arrival and she is eager to assist you and your pet with your veterinary questions. Jenn brings along experience from her years caring for her best mate, Brian, a boisterous golden retriever, and Stewie, a loving senior long-haired kitty. Weekends and spare time finds Jen enjoying NCAA football games and her beloved Wolverines with friends and family. She is also an avid video gamer and loves to get caught up in saving other worlds and racing crazy streets- we think she is practicing to be the next great super hero. We are incredibly blessed to have Jenn as a part our family and know you will feel the same.
