Dr. Locke earned his DVM degree from Michigan State University in 1970. Previously, he was on the board for the South Suburban Humane Society and helped establish Emergency Veterinary Care South Associates in Crestwood, IL to service pets' needs after hours. Dr. Locke is also a member of American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Chicago Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association (ISVMA), and Cornell Feline Health Center. Although Dr. Locke recently retired from full time practice, he often helps us out when the need arises.
"I like people; and I especially like people who consider their pet a part of their family. Pets are not to be put in a run or cage; they are part of the family structure, and should be treated with dignity and respect. I enjoy helping people build a lasting bond with their companion animals and seeing that bond develop through the years. It's a rewarding experience."
