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 has worked in many different practices since graduating including Oklahoma Veterinary Specialist as an Emergency Veterinarian under the guidance of surgical and internal medicine specialists. The arrival of his first child guided Scott back to Moore to serve the community from which he came. Scott spends the majority of his time with his Family, Lyndsie, Barrett, Weston, and their pets.
