I am so honored to work and be part of the best veterinary medical and surgical care team anywhere. Their collective experience, skill
and caring are second to none..... Richard Lanier DVM
Warren Animal Clinic PC
I grew up on Detroit's East Side and went off to Michigan State University in 1960. I guess from early on I always wanted to be a
veterinarian. In 1966 I graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine with my DVM degree. Now it was time to get to work. The
problem was that I was only 23, so I had to do all I could to look and act older. For the first few years my skill set grew as I worked
in 3 practices in Suburban Detroit, finally landing in one that was the model for the practice I wanted to develop.
August 2, 1970 I opened Warren Animal Clinic. For the past 46 years I have operated with the goal, “To provide the best possible patient
care while the patient is under our direction” and “A righteous man cares for the needs of his animals. Proverbs 12:10”.
It has been
exciting and rewarding. Being in veterinary practice has allowed me to serve wonderful pet parents and patients in need. I also get
to work with dedicated and talented co-workers. You will never imagine how skilled and caring they are.
Finally, I wish to thank all
our loyal clients that have supported Warren Animal Clinic these 45+ years.

I am proud and excited to join the Warren Animal Clinic team! A Milford, MI, native, I grew up with pets and knew from a young age that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I studied Clinical Laboratory Sciences during my undergraduate studies at Michigan State University prior to veterinary school. I graduated from MSU, having earned a Bachelors of Science in Veterinary Science in 2009 and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2011.
My veterinary interests include internal medicine, surgery, and dermatology. My goal is to provide our pets with the best quality and happiest life possible. Outside of veterinary medicine, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my cat, Spencer. I also enjoy outdoor activities, traveling, and am an avid Michigan State fan. In my spare time, you can find me cheering on the Spartans at basketball and football games!
In 1977 one of the first Veterinary Technician national exams was offer to people who were endorsed by a veterinarian and who worked for that veterinarian for three years. I was one of those lucky people who qualified for that exam and passed it!
Becoming a Veterinary Technician was one of the happiest days of my life.
In 1992 I graduated from Walsh College with a degree in accounting which has helped me better understand the business of veterinary medicine.
Through the years I witnessed a lot of innovations in technology, drugs and diets that have dramatically helped to improved the health of our pets.
I appreciate being a part of veterinary medicine and look forward to seeing more improvements as we continue to better understand the lives of our pets and the important role they play in our human family.
As long as I can remember I have always wanted to work with animals. After graduating from Macomb Community College in 1999 from the veterinary technician program, I started working at Warren Animal Clinic. It gives me great pride and accomplishment being able to help clients and their pets. My husband and I enjoy coming home to our two dogs Hobie and Floyd plus Azriel our cat.
I was given an excellent opportunity to work at Warren Animal Clinic the summer before my senior year in high school in 2005. I've always been an animal lover and knew that working with animals was my calling. With the time spent at Warren Animal Clinic and seeing the compassionate care given by everybody I realized that being a veterinary technician is what I wanted to do. I graduated from the Macomb Community College Veterinary Technician program in 2010 and was licensed shortly after. I am excited to be apart of this family and of all the things we have to offer our clients and their pets.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and our new member of the family, Snoopy. Snoopy is a beagle who my family adopted from Veterinary Emergency Service. He was brought in as a stray and was believed to have been hit by a car. His injuries did include some orthopedic hip issues that required surgery that Dr. Lanier was able to repair. Snoopy was very shy at first, but he just had to come out of his shell. He now has the fun beagle running laps in the backyard!
