Meet the friendly staff at All Pets Animal Hospital!
Dr. Clark graduated from Oklahoma State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, in May, 1986. He and his wife, Beverly, and two daughters moved to Wichita Falls where he worked at a veterinary hospital for five years. In April, 1991, he opened All Pets Animal Hospital. He and Beverly are active members of First Baptist Church. They enjoy spending time with their two married daughters and six grandchildren and their four legged family members, dogs Riah and Murphy. Dr. Clark also enjoys many outdoor activities including cycling and spending time with his German Shorthair Pointer, Riah.
Dr. Alix Buffing is a recent graduate of Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine, class of 2017. She was raised in western Oklahoma where her father raises stocker cattle and farms wheat. Her mother owns and breeds AKC registered Australian Shepherds. She has an enduring compassion for small animal pets and their owners. In her spare time, Alix enjoys training rope horses and playing with her two Corgis and Aussie, Annie, Sophie and Charlie. She looks forward to building a new home in rural Wichita Falls along-side her future husband, Curtis Hill.
Dr. Elizabeth Browning graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1981. Most of her career she owned her own practice, but she has also worked in emergency/critical care clinics and has been a clinical instructor for veterinary students. In 2013, she sold her practice in the Dallas area and moved to Wichita Falls, where she helps out on an as-needed basis. She enjoys playing her violin and riding bicycles with her husband, Gary. Together they have a beautiful standard poodle named, Naomi.
Mrs. Walker was born on June 30, 1952 to Foxie and Velma Bluford in Montgomery, Alabama. She traveled and lived many places with her family due to her dad’s military career, ending with his retirement in Wichita Falls. She graduated from SH Rider High in 1970 and attended a year of finishing school in Dallas. Karen met her husband, Bill Walker in 1971 and they married later that same year. They were married 32 years before his death in 2003. Together they had one daughter, Kimberly. While raising Kim, Karen became an active leader in Girl Scouts, 4-H dog obedience, 4-H Shooting sports as well as a leader at NWTF&S Gun Club. Mrs. Walker was a vet tech at All Pets Animal Hospital for 30 years. Karen was a gifted seamstress and quilter and an active member of the Red River Quilters Association and local guild. Karen was a believer and follower of Jesus Christ and an active member of the Electra Community Church. We are deeply saddened, beyond what words can express, by the passing of Karen Walker. Karen was a vital member of our All Pets family. She was with Dr. Clark since the first day that All Pets opened and has been the "face" of our practice for over 25 years. Karen was the glue that kept us together, the heart and soul of our practice. She provided an excellent example to other staff members both at work and outside of work. We do so miss her fun, pleasant attitude and especially the hallmark of her personality - her signature laugh.
Sally Perkins joined the All Pets Animal Hospital family in January 2006 as “temporary” part-time receptionist and liked her job so much she never left! A lifelong Wichitan, Sally is a graduate of Rider H.S. and earned both her B.A. and M.A. from Texas Christian University. She is a former public school teacher and, while working at All Pets, she juggled a second job teaching Business Communications at MSU and then English at Wichita Christian School. Now retired from teaching, Sally works at APAH approximately 25 hours a week. She considers herself a “people person” and can recognize and greet 90% of our clients by name when they walk in the door. She enjoys getting to know both the clients and patients we serve. When she is not at work, Sally is probably having a cup of coffee at Starbuck’s, working a crossword puzzle, cooking or sharing a meal with a friend, or reading a book for pleasure. She lives in a 90-year-old historic house with her 10.5 year-old-rescue lab named Brodie.
Jamie Foster has had the privilege of working at All Pets Animal Hospital since 2011. She enjoys spending time with her varied family of rescue animals and foster failures, including four dogs, Dandy, Leo, Spike, and Coco, and is occasionally tolerated by her lovely parrot named Molly, in whose house she is permitted to live. While her husband Thomas Foster recently left the team at All Pets to apply his skills to the more treacherous world of human medicine, in August Jamie will be leaving All Pets to further her education in the veterinary field and pursue a degree in veterinary medicine. In the meantime, she is honored and blessed to spend her time showering love and care on your pets and looks forward to welcoming you to the All Pets family!

Together, she and her husband raised five children, opened their home to numerous pets, and are now delighted to have grandchildren and grand-puppies!
