Jeanette McClendon, Veterinary Clinic in Orange, VA

Dr. Jeanette McClendon—Dr. McClendon and her husband, Frank, have owned and run Orange Veterinary Clinic for more than 25 years. Dr. McClendon received her veterinary medicine degree from Kansas State University and found Virginia to be a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

Today, the face of the clinic has changed significantly, both externally and through major additions, renovations, and landscaping. Internally, the clinic has succeeded in building a compassionate and professional practice, which is well respected in the community.

Together, the McClendons have 2 grown sons, Colin and Rory. In their free time, they all enjoy horses and horseback riding and have many horses at home, along with other pets: 2 Jack Russell Terriers and 1 cat. Dr. McClendon also thoroughly enjoys gardening, which is evidenced in the beautiful gardens surrounding the clinic.

Leah, Monohan, Veterinary Clinic in Orange, VA

Dr. Monohan has had an ongoing interest in exotics and is developing a new interest in veterinary behavioral medicine. Her favorite aspect of veterinary medicine as a whole is client education, which allows her to meet and foster relationships with pets and their owners.

Outside of work, Dr. Monohan enjoys special time with her twin boys, Aidan and Riley (especially doing anything that is outdoors). She hopes to continue some home improvement projects, mosaic art, and watercolor painting in the future. She also enjoys traveling as much as possible. Sawyer is the 12-year-old cat that she rescued in Charlottesville.

Dr. Monohan is very enthusiastic about joining our team here at Orange Veterinary Clinic and is eager to learn more about Orange, Virginia, and its pets.
