Leigh McCracken

Office Manager

Leigh McCracken was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, and has attended the University of Cincinnati for the past 5 years (focused in communications and veterinary sciences). She has worked for Dr. Bob since May 2009 as a receptionist, assistant, and office manager and takes great pleasure in what she does. Besides her beloved time when she is at the clinic, Leigh likes to go on frequent walks around the city with her best friend, a rat terrier named Mr. Peanut Buttertons. She also enjoys watching films and reading.

Big Al

Clinic Cat

Big Al is actually a female feline, despite her name (that leads some to believe she is actually “a big man with a gambling problem”). Big Al is the clinic cat of Plum Street Pet Clinic, and she takes her role very seriously. She greets every patient at the elevator and makes sure they are where they need to be! Big Al lives in her fantasy that she really does control the ownership of the clinic’s second floor. In her off time, Big Al enjoys sleeping, watching birds, and harassing people for wet cat food. Dr. Bob’s nickname for her is taken to heart because, at the clinic, we believe Big Al was formerly the nosy Mrs. Kravitz from Bewitched!

Mr. Peanut Buttertons

Clinic Mascot

“Peanut” for short, Mr. Peanut Buttertons is a rat terrier mix and he works at Plum Street Pet Clinic full time. He is the clinic mascot and loves to welcome all new clients with a not-so-welcoming bark. Although he is less than 15 pounds, he carries the heart of a lion in his oh-so-tiny chest. Peanut’s time spent away from the clinic consists of walks, runs, and shopping (at the pet store, of course). Dr. Bob’s professional opinion is, “The only thing that overpowers his intelligence is his sense of self-worth.”
