Loren W. Noblitt, MS, DVM
Dr. Loren Noblitt received his D.V.M. degree from Purdue University’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. He is a Michigan native who has lived in Zionsville, IN since 2004. Dr. Noblitt was an avid volunteer and employee of the Humane Society of Genesee County in Flint, MI while working towards a B.S. degree in Biology from the University of Michigan, which he received in 2001. He received an M.S. degree in Veterinary Virology from Purdue University in 2003, where his research focused on genetically altering viruses to carry therapeutic genes into human breast cancer cells found to be lacking these genes.
Outside of work, Dr. Noblitt’s interests include following Michigan football, traveling, playing the drums and the guitar, white water rafting, training for and participating in triathlons, and occasionally—golfing. He enjoys spending quality time outside of work with his two children, Isabelle and Luke, and loving on their adorable and all white cat, Lily. Dr. Noblitt’s philosophy of veterinary care is simple: “I strive to treat each patient as though I am treating one of my own pets and to educate my clients to the best of my ability so that they can make good, practical, informed decisions on their pet’s behalf.
