Dr. Irvin Ingram, the founder of All Creatures Animal Clinic, graduated from the University of California with his DVM (1972) and Masters Degree (1973). He has practiced in Arizona since 1973 and in 1987 he started All Creatures Animal Clinic.
Dr. Ingram has served on many veterinary committees, including being the director, officer and president of the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association. He is currently an alternate on the Arizona Veterinary Medical Examining Board as an Investigation Committee member. In 2002, Dr. Ingram was honored as the Veterinarian of the Year by the Arizona State Veterinary Association. He is most proud of his marriage to his wife Shar and their three children: David, a University of Arizona graduate; Kris, a practicing veterinarian; and Wendy, a post-graduate PhD student at the University of California at Berkeley doing work in Peru. All three have traveled to Nicaragua as a part of the HERO organization to work with human healthcare personnel on medical missions. Dr. Irv and Dr. Kris also share their love of animals through travels to Africa, Tibetan refugee camps in India, and our own Hopi and Navajo Indian Reservation to vaccinate and alter dogs and cats. Although he is beginning to reduce his work schedule, Dr. Irv still loves the challenge of veterinary medicine.
