Tim Dalpiaz, DVM

Tim Dalpiaz, DVM graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2003, here he earned his DVM Degree of Veterinary medicine. Dr. Dalpiaz then completed his clinical internship at Louisiana State Univeristy, where he was able to work alongside several accomplished board certified oncology specialists with a wide variety of medical conditions. His professional interests include: oncology, surgery and dentistry. He confides, "The best part of practicing veterinary medicine is being able to diagnose and treat patients who don't have the ability to vocalize what may be wrong."

Dr. Dalpiaz opened Boones Creek Animal Hospital in 2008, designing the facility with his patients in mind. Since that time our hispital has grown from only 5 employees to over 15 employees today, while being recognized as one of the premier hospitals in the Tri-cities area. Boones Creek has been featured in various journals such as, 'The Ridges Magainze' as well as 'WJHL', the local news channel.

When Dr. Dalpiaz is not busy caring for his patients, he enjoys snowboarding, kayaking, hiking, traveling, and parachuting. He lives in the Tri-cities with his two daughters, Sophia and Harper, and their sphynx cats Joe and SJ.

Dr. Whitney Lemarr, DVM

Dr. Whitney Lemarr, DVM

Even as a child, Dr. Whitney Lemarr always knew that she wanted to become a veterinarian. “I couldn’t stand to see animals in pain or suffering,” said Dr. Lemarr. “And I loved to help people who loved their pets. So becoming a veterinarian was the perfect choice for me.”

Dr. Lemarr grew up in rural Harlan, Kentucky and confesses that she was always bringing animals home. “My parents were pretty good natured about it,” she said. “But they had their limits.”

These days, Dr. Lemarr has had to set her own limits. “I now have four cats and two dogs—I think that’s my capacity,” she confesses. “All of my animals have come to me through my career—either abandoned or animals with quirks that no one else wanted. But I have learned that I can't take them all home and I've found good homes for many other animals with needs.”

Dr. Lemarr graduated from Auburn University in Alabama with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. She loves to hike and really enjoys the local hiking trails. She also likes to bike and when she can't be outside, loves to read books on almost any topic. She is very involved in her church, Christ Community Church, and appreciates the friends she has made there.

She enjoys working with Dr. Dalpiaz because they share the same philosophy and ideas about veterinary medicine. “We both love to treat animals and help people,” she explains. “I’m delighted to practice at Boones Creek Animal Hospital, the staff is wonderful and our clients are happy.
