Dr. Lingenfelter

Dr. Lingenfelter was born in Pleasant Valley, Nevada, as a fifth generation native of the state. He was raised on a ranch working with cattle, horses, ranch dogs, and barn cats where he acquired his interest and passion for veterinary medicine. After finishing his high school education in Reno, he went on to obtain two Bachelor Degrees at University of Nevada and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State in 1987. He opened his first animal hospital in Sparks, Nevada in 1988 and after great success at this hospital, he started a small practice in South Reno in 1994. Through the combined success of both hospitals, Dr. Lingenfelter was able to design and build a larger practice in South Reno in 1997. Then in 2011, Dr. Lingenfelter merged the two locations into the new 12,000 square foot hospital that he and four other veterinarians operate out of today. With a strong work ethic, sharp business knowledge, and a resilient commitment to animal health care, he has developed a great relationship with his clients and their four-legged companions with state of the art care.

Dr. Lingenfelter enjoys spending time with his wife, Denise, who is a first grade elementary teacher. They were recently married in October 2006. He also enjoys skiing, biking, hiking, playing racquetball, and treating his wife to his delicious gourmet cooking. Dr. Lingenfelter can also be found volunteering as an auctioneer for the 4-H Club and the Nevada Junior Livestock Program.
