Lorrie Meranda

Read Bio

Lorrie is one of our vet assistants and has been with us since 2006, and has been in the veterinary field for 30 years, with several of those 30 years with an internal medicine specialist. She enjoys taking care of our patients and helping to educate our clients about their pet's health. Lorrie is from Oklahoma and attended OCCC.
Lorrie says, "I have 4 pit-bull terriers and one little mixed breed terrier that has come to work with me every day that I have been at Schrag Animal Clinic. Each day at 5:30 on the dot, he howls out to let all of us know it is getting close to 6:00. I have an old black cat who deserves an honorable mention. He has helped raise all the animals in our house for the last 15 years and has done a wonderful job of keeping everyone in line! I almost forgot Theo, my very lazy turtle."
When asked what her favorite species is, Lorrie replied, "I love all species of animals. I am partial to large breed dogs. If I had to pick a favorite breed I would just pick one of each!"
Lorrie's biggest hobby is her new business adventure. She creates Cremation Pendants for people who have lost their beloved pets and would like to be able to keep their pet close to their heart after their passing. Having said goodbye to many of her own pets, she said she knows the pain felt in our hearts when they are gone. So, inspired by the love of her own pets and the love our clients have for their pets, she started Unique Cremation Pendants. Each pendant is special and designed especially for each individual person and their pet. Whether a person chooses hair or ashes of their beloved companion, it is a beautiful way to remember the precious little soul who passed through our life. Lorrie would like to remind all pet owner's that yearly exams are one of the most important things we can do for our pets, especially as they become seniors. Screening our senior pets for potential health issues early helps them lead healthier, happier, longer lives. Her top tip for all pet owner's is to microchip you furry friends! Remember to keep your information updated with the microchip company at all times. She also reminds us to keep a collar with ID tags that have a current phone number on our pets at all times. Also include your veterinarian's number on the ID tag so the vet can keep your pet safe if you aren't immediately available to pick up your lost pet. Knowing that every day, the employees at Schrag Animal Clinic do everything they can to keep their patients as healthy as they can be is Lorrie's favorite part of her job.

Sarah’s hobbies are being a mom to her beloved Atlas who is an American Staffordshire and boxer mix and her 2 cats, Kamora and Pan and let's not forget her diva ferret Kahlessi.
In her free time, Sarah does geometric origami and enjoys spending time with her family and friends. When asked to describe herself, she answered “I would describe myself as compassionate and easy going with a big heart who is a sucker for bottle feeding kittens and puppies back to health for one day to be adopted out to a forever family.”
Sarah would like our clients to know the importance of preventive care including vaccinations, heart-worm, flea, and tick prevention and doing blood profiles when your dog is healthy to help detect certain diseases early, like kidney or liver failure, and getting your pet spayed or neutered, and living by the motto adopt don't shop. She also Stated “Another thing I would like to tell my clients is the importance of working with your animal to get them used to vet visits. Some tips would be getting your animal socialized with other people and animals flipping over their ears checking teeth and playing with their paws.” What she loves about her job is the experience she gets working with all types of animals and being able to help animals in their time of need. And being in a facility where her coworkers and clients are a big family.
