Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Joan Evinger is a Southern Indiana native. She has been associated with veterinary medicine since 1958 when she started volunteering at a local veterinary office. After graduation from Our Lady of Providence High School, she entered the pre-veterinary curriculum at Purdue University. In 1967, after being elected to Phi Zeta (a scholastic honorary society), and earning her D.V.M. degree from Purdue, she returned home to practice. After 12 years of practice, she took a 2 ½-year sabbatical to study small animal internal medicine at Purdue. Her solo practice started in 1985 when she returned home from Purdue. Care-Pets Animal Hospital and Wellness Center has been at its present location since 2001.

In 2004, Dr. Evinger's husband brought their first bird home. This started an avian infatuation that has lead to expanding the practice to include birds. Avian medicine, surgery, and behavior take a large portion of her continuing education time. In addition, Dr. Evinger attends the national Association of Avian Veterinarians conference every year.

When not engaged in professional pursuits, Dr. Evinger enjoys traveling, canoeing, hiking, camping, hunting, reading and singing in the church choir. She also enjoys spending quality, quiet time with her bird, Aurora, a Patagonian Conure.
