Dr. Cloward graduated Columbia University in 1994 with a B.S. in chemistry and while pursuing his Ph.D in bio-organic chemistry at UC Berkeley he decided to pursue his childhood dream to become a veterinarian. "I am so blessed to be able to live my childhood dream". Dr. Cloward graduated Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 and has practiced the last 12 years in New Jersey and North Carolina focused exclusively on small animal veterinary medicine and emergency medicine. Dr. Cloward also spent 2 years working full-time as an overnight emergency veterinarian at a busy veterinary emergency service in New Jersey. Dr. Cloward is now the proud owner of Dal Paso Animal Hospital. "I am so excited to practice and live here in Hobbs and look forward to meeting all of you and your loving pets".
Update- I have now practiced here in Hobbs for 11 years and have loved every minute of it, I am so blessed.
"My name is Lisa Cloward and I grew up just south of Pittsburgh, PA. I am easy to spot with my Pittsburgh accent and love of the black and gold, Go Steelers! I started in this field in 1999 at a veterinary emergency clinic in dormont, PA as a veterinary technician and I have been committed to the profession ever since. I have worked with Dr. Cloward for over 5 years in the northeast and I'm thrilled to join him at Dal Paso Animal Hospital. I have been called “the cat whisperer" because I am all about cats. I have 6 of my own!! The oldest is my 18 year old Manx “Thumper” and the newest edition is a 5 week-old kitten we just rescued. I also have a dog that I love too, a giant blue-eyed white boxer we affectionately call “hop-hop”. A passion of mine is "everything dentistry" because it improves the health of the pet so dramatically. I can't wait to meet you and your pets!"
I have worked at Dal Paso Animal Hospital for 11 years now and still love it. I am the surgical coordinator and office manager. I have met so many wonderful people and their pets. It is just the greatest job ever. We appreciate you so much!!
I have been working as a veterinary nurse at Dal Paso Animal Hospital for almost four years. I love everything I do. I care for all the hospitalized animals as well as help with all of the daily walk in appointments and emergencies. Working with the animals is so rewarding I just love it. I have cats and dogs too and just got a corgi puppy as well. I am also in the process of getting a veterinary technician degree from college.
