Dr. Mary Fluke

Dr. Fluke has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was a youngster. She thought she would practice on farm animals and horses...imagine her surprise when she ended up specializing in dogs and cats! She earned her BA from Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, and graduated from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986. She completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Purdue University before moving to Charlotte in 1987. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary practice but often finds herself focusing on surgery and behavioral issues.

Dr. Fluke is a charter member of the Carolina Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Club and enjoys showing her PBGVs. She does scent training and competes in hunting trials. She is also a board member of Samaritan House, a recuperative care facility here in Charlotte, where people who are homeless may stay to get well after being discharged from the hospital.

When not working or cleaning up after her dogs, she can be found in her garden, repainting her living room, or playing music with the Charlotte Folk Society.

Laurie Anne Walden, DVM

Dr. Laurie Anne Walden

Dr. Walden has been with Mallard Creek Animal Hospital since 1995. She grew up in South Carolina and received her undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina. She earned her doctorate in veterinary medicine from North Carolina State University and then completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Auburn University.

After several years as a full-time veterinarian, Dr. Walden now works at Mallard Creek part time and also works from home full time as a self-employed medical writer and editor. She considers herself lucky to be doing two jobs she loves: helping pets and working with words.

Dr. Walden lives in Charlotte with her husband, two children, and two dogs (one of unguessable heritage and one Walker coonhound who probably landed at the shelter because he doesn't like loud noises other than the ones he makes himself).

Merlin

Merlin has been with Mallard Creek since 2007. He loves playing host at the front door when everyone comes in. He has learned to bark with the dogs, meow with the cats, and "wolf whistle" at everyone. His very favorite noise is the fire truck. Please stop by and whistle a tune with him.
