Dr. Tom Finn, an Alma native, obtained his doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. Following this he returned to central Michigan and worked at a small animal practice for five years. Over this time Dr. Finn had the good fortune of meeting and working with Dr. Rousseau. Dr. Finn values the owner- animal- doctor team, fostered by open and honest communication in the decisions the owner and doctor make together for the pet’s health.

In his spare time Dr. Finn enjoys spending time with his family and friends, biking, following Purdue athletics, and walks with his miniature Dachshund-Beagle mix Cupcake.

Dr. Gruca has known Dr. Rousseau since she started job shadowing in the field over 20 years ago. She values open communication in the approachable environment in order to provide the absolute best care for the clients and their pets.

Outside of work, she enjoys outdoor activities and spending time with family, friends and her two dogs.

Digit is our office cat. He was found by one of our clients in their chicken coop and was in pretty rough shape. After fixing him up the plan was to adopt him out. However, we fell in love and decided that this was his forever home. You will most commonly find him in his basket up front taking naps or looking for his next snack. We are so happy he is a member of our team, as he brings so much life and love to our clinic.

We have many other helping hands that make our practice run smoothly. Come in to meet the rest of our team!
