About The Clinic - Serving Noblesville IN for Over 60 Years!
The Noblesville Veterinary Clinic is celebrating its 61st year in practice. The original clinic was established in 1953 by Dr. James Fleck, 1953 graduate of the Ohio State School of Veterinary Medicine. The clinic began as a mixed animal practice with its primary focus on food animal medicine, including treatment of cattle, sheep goats, chicken and horses used on the farm. Also, small companion animals from the local community, including dogs, cats, ferrets and horses were treated.
Through the years, Indianapolis grew, the farms sold, superstores arrived and people with companion animals moved in. All the while, the NVC evolved by meeting each challenge with the great and small things – hope, faith and love, and a willingness to change.
Dr. James Fleck is still active in addressing the direction of the practice, helping us to look back on our experiences to draw mature conclusions about disease processes. In many ways, veterinary medicine is and will continue to be a reactive medicine – we react to disease or injury with medicine or surgery. However, we also know from our experiences the many reasons why we need to direct our newest programs towards preventative medicine. We want to look at factors that we have seen in certain disease states and direct diet and lifestyle change to help prevent these diseases.
In 1977, Dr. Tim Fleck, a 1976 graduate of the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine, became a partner in the clinic, and in 1986 became the owner sole practitioner. In 1992, he was certified as an animal chiropractor by the AVCA. He also received his certification in Veterinary Acupuncture by IVAS in 1995. That same year, he also received his Diplomat Certification from AVCA, a feat very few have achieved. Dr. Fleck is a member of the AVMA, AAHA, AAEP, IVAS, AAVA AVCA and IVMA. He spent 6 years on the Arabian Horse Association Judges and Stewards Education and Evaluation Committee, and is on the Board of the Arabian Horse Foundation. He was also the President and the Treasurer of the Indiana Arabian Horse Club.
We are excited to see what the future may bring and look at veterinary medicine through its past, present and future. Please feel free to contact our veterinarian of staff about our philosophies and practices.
