Dr. Jesse Skinner Joins All Paws Animal Clinic

All Paws Animal Clinic is proud to introduce its new associate veterinarian, Dr. Jesse Skinner.

Skinner was born and raised in Palm Beach County. A graduate of Lake Worth High School, he spent much time as a young man enjoying the area’s beautiful beaches, surfing with friends. After graduation, he decided to join the Florida Army National Guard and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2004. It was there that Skinner discovered his interest in medicine.

Upon returning home, Skinner combined his newfound interest in medicine with his love for animals and decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. He began pursuing this goal by working in a veterinary clinic. “I was lucky enough to work for Dr. Patty Forsythe at All Paws as an assistant, which only increased my passion for the profession,” Skinner said.

Skinner attended Florida Atlantic University and graduated cum laude with a degree in psychobiology. He continued his education by obtaining his doctor of veterinary medicine degree from North Carolina State University, one of the nation’s most highly ranked veterinary schools.

During his tenure at North Carolina State, Skinner received an award for excellence in junior surgery, as well as the American Animal Hospital Association award for proficiency in primary care. His professional interests include surgery, geriatric care, clinical pathology, ultrasound and internal medicine.

Skinner enjoys the diversity of the veterinary medicine he can perform at All Paws Animal Clinic, as well as the client interaction. His goal is to always keep the client calm and well-informed, so that the focus can be on the pet receiving the best care. He brings a keen insight and strong diagnostic ability to All Paws. Combined with Forsythe’s extensive experience in veterinary medicine, they both look forward to providing the western communities “quality veterinary care with compassion.”

Skinner is a family man and enjoys spending his free time with his wife, Nicole, and two dogs, Trouble and Namani. He also stays active still surfing, going to the gym and playing basketball. Depending on the season, he can be found rooting for Florida sports teams, such as the Dolphins, Hurricanes, Heat and Marlins.

All Paws Animal Clinic is located at 1011 N. State Road 7 in Royal Palm Beach. For more information, call (561) 790-9225 or visit www.allpawsanimal.com.
