Silver Leaf Animal Hospital was founded in 1972 by Dr. Robert Briggs, who provided his clients with compassionate care until he retired. In 2015, the practice underwent major renovation and modernization of all equipment, facilities and staff. The goal became to provide the area with the most cutting-edge medicine, surgical techniques and ancillary services in veterinary medicine in the most cost-effective manner possible. Dr. Scott Floyd, also of Moore, OK, became an integral part of the team in 2016. Both doctors are currently working diligently to further the vision of this practice and support the community.
Dr. Scott Floyd
Dr. Scott Floyd’s job is to diagnose and treat pets for a wide variety of illnesses, from itchy dogs and ear infections to major medical and surgical emergencies. He began working at Silver Leaf in Spring 2016. Scott decided to go into the veterinary field because of his love for a childhood dog named Ellie Mae and because his uncle owned a veterinary clinic in Moore, where Scott got to go behind the scenes. His uncle was very well-respected, and Scott wanted to follow in his footsteps. Scott applied to vet school as soon as possible and was accepted on his first attempt. He graduated with a 3.5GPA and passed the NAVLE (North American Veterinary Licensing Exam) on the first attempt. He tried a few vet clinics until he found a way to get back to the people of Moore. Scott and his wife have three dogs, a cat and two children.

She once assisted with a surgery to remove three golf balls a lab had eaten, and the dog survived! Jennifer and her husband live in Moore and have three little girls, and the older two are twins. They are active in their church and with their twins’ sports.
Sandi McLennan, Receptionist
Sandi joined the Silver Leaf team in February 2017. Before, she had worked in the insurance industry, but then she got a job as an office manager at a vet office and fell in love with it. At one time, a father came in with his children’s dog who was hit by a car, and he wanted to euthanize the dog because the cost of an orthopedic surgeon was too much. Sandie and the team convinced him to let the dog stay at the clinic, where they took care of him until he could walk again, and every day the children visited their pet until she could go home again. She loves working with pets and their owners. She and her husband are cat-lovers and have had many cats together.
