Janice Mallory, D.V.M

Practice Owner, Veterinarian

My name is Dr. Janice Mallory. Since my graduation from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1977, I have been in private small animal practice. Having grown up on a farm, I have never been without a dog or cat in my life and often several at one time. I love being a veterinarian and feel honored to be entrusted with the health and well being of your pets. I consider myself lucky to have the best staff of animal lovers to assist me.

Nicholas Mallory, D.V.M

Veterinarian

Hello, my name is Dr. Nicholas Mallory and I am an associate veterinarian at Rensselaer Pet Care. I received my Bachelor of Science and my Bachelor of Arts from St. Joseph College. I went on to study veterinary medicine at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. My wife and I have two cats, Cheddar and Bowie, and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Benedict Harold. When we are not spending time with family and friends, we love to travel and try local food and breweries. I have a passion for radiology, cardiology, and surgery. Being part of a family that loves animals has given me a desire to always be the voice for those who cannot speak. I am very fortunate to be a member of this wonderful team at Rensselaer Pet Care.

Lexi

Lexi

Veterinary Assistant

Hi, I’m Lexi! I recently joined the RPC Family as a veterinary assistant. I have always had a profession where I have cared for others. Even as a child I had a love for animals and constantly begged my parents for more. I have four dogs of my own now. Laynee, a Golden Saint; Wesson, a Lab; Sandy Jo, a Lab; and Magnolia, a Golden Retriever. I also love exotic animals, including rabbits. I own four rabbits and my family owns a rabbitry. I have learned so much over the years of owning pets through my life, but starting this new journey at RPC I get the opportunity to learn so much more. Besides animals in my life, I recently became engaged to my boyfriend of eight years. When I’m not having fun with my pups, you can find me going to country music concerts, camping, and spending time with my family.

Sarah

Sarah

Veterinary Assistant/Client Services Coordinator/Virtual Care Coordinator

You have seen me here and there at RPC for around ten years, wearing many hats (and hair colors!). I have a Bachelor of Science from St. Joseph’s College, and every day is still a great day to be a Puma! I began my journey as a receptionist part time while teaching. I grew up on a farm and have cared for many animals, and this definitely inspired my career change. I became a full-time employee, trained as a kennel attendant and eventually assistant. Life had me moving around the state throughout the years, but I remained in the veterinary profession and returned to RPC full force, taking on more responsibilities as we have grown. I have two cats, Luci and Raz, and continue to help on the family farm with lots and lots of chickens.
