Our Veterinarians at Wooster Animal Clinic

Dr. Mike and Jane Yacapraro

In Memory of Dr. Mike and Jane Yacapraro

Dr. Mike and Jane Yacapraro opened the Wooster Animal Clinic in August, 1968. During the early months, it was just the two of them.  In fact, clients would often see several of their small children in a playpen tucked behind the reception desk!  Fortunately soon thereafter, they were able to hire some support staff, enabling Jane to spend more time at home with their growing family.  Both remained active with the clinic until their passing.

Though we lost both Dr. Mike and Jane in 2018, their memories remain with all of us at Wooster Animal Clinic.
