She started working at a veterinary hospital in Columbus, OH when she was 15 years old, and was grandfathered in as a Veterinary Technician.

Paul S French, Jr. DVM

Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine

Dr. French is the newest doctor in the practice having been here since 1998. His duties at Northwest Veterinary Hospital include primarily large and food animal, but is also involved in small animal activities.

Dr. French grew up on a small family farm in south east Ohio with a younger brother. In first grade he had to write a short paragraph about what he wanted to do when he grew up. He wrote that he wanted to be a veterinarian and help animals. Dr. French showed numerous animals in 4H growing up. As a small boy he started to treat sick or injured wild animals and did his first surgery at the age of 10, helping the local veterinary repair an umbilical hernia on a pig. After that he really became interested in veterinary medicine. Dr. French attended undergraduate college at The Ohio State University and got a degree in Dairy Science. He then managed a large registered Angus beef herd that was one of the first practicing rotational grazing herd. During veterinary school at OSU he also worked in an influenza research laboratory. He studied influenza in horses and chickens and has had several published articles, helped to develop a new equine influenza vaccine and a rapid diagnostic test for influenza in horses and birds.

Dr. French moved to the area after graduating veterinary school. He has two children that attend Wauseon Schools. They are both active in 4H and have an interest in agriculture. His daughter has shown a gift for veterinary medicine.

Dr. French currently has many pets, most of which were abandoned or unwanted. He has several cats, a dog, goat, chickens, turkeys and a horse. The Boer goat, Sundae, was born with incomplete rear limbs. He could not euthanize her as a baby and gave her a good life for 10 years.

Dr. French enjoys different things within his professional life. His day may go from doing a herd check on a group of cows, then looking at a goat or deer, then back to the office to examine a dog or do a behavioral consult on a cat. Small animal medicine is also intriguing as Dr. French has a special interest in animal behavior.

In his personal life, Dr. French loves to be outside; hunting, fishing, gardening, watching the sun set and spending time with his kids.
