Dr. Becky Marks

Dr. Becky Marks graduated from Oklahoma State Veterinary  School in 1989. She was awarded the Iams Scholarship Award on hyperthyroidism. Most practitioners did not even know what the disease was at that time. She practices general veterinary medicine. Dr. Becky’s special interests include hyperthyroidism, internal medicine, soft tissue surgery and cardiology. She loves being a mom and being married to Dr. Merle. Her hobbies include orchestral clarinet, pep band, helping the school band, basketball mom  and vegetable gardening . She loves to take walks with their boxer Ruby.

Both doctors have traditional values-the patient comes first, the patient is treated as if they are our own and above all-do no harm. Sometimes in Veterinary  Corporate America the higher ups require monthly demands on how many labs, rads or products must be sold. Our doctors treat each patient and family on an individual basis. We want to know about you and your family and how to serve your needs.
