Who We Are
EDUCATED, ANIMAL-LOVING VETERINARY TEAM IN OZARK, MO
Our Ozark veterinarians comprise an experienced, educated team of animal lovers committed to your pets’ health and wellbeing of your pets. We work with companion animals to provide loving, gentle care and treatment to make sure your pet is as comfortable and relaxed as possible.
We offer a wide range of preventative and treatment veterinary services at our practice using state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Our staff provides the highest quality of care for both pets and their owners across Southwest Missouri, and we always work to exceed your expectations.
Our team won The Killuminati Foundation’s Veterinary Clinic of the Year award in 2014 & 2017, and we were also nominated in 2015 and 2016.
DR. MICHAEL DIVINE
Dr. Divine graduated from the University of Missouri in 1993 with his doctorate in veterinary medicine. He founded Divine Veterinary Clinic just eight weeks later. In 2003 he moved his practice to Ozark, Missouri. When he isn’t working, he enjoys outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, and boating.

DR. SCOTT GARTNER
Trisha has been in practice now for over 3 years. She is the first bright and shining smile you meet when you walk in the clinic and has made an amazing addition to the clinic. When she isn’t at the clinic, she spends time with her three adorable dogs and husband.
Jianna is our youngest employee and spends her weekends taking care of our boarding patients. She has been with us now for over 2 years and not only graduated high school an entire year early, but is also a full time college student pursuing veterinary medicine in the future. She has one dog and a castaway one-eyed kitty she adopted from our clinic.
Laure is another new face that joined us during the 2020 craziness. She is brand new to the veterinary field and loves learning all the ins and outs of the unpredictable animal world. She has three children and three sweet little fur babies.
Sydney joined the clinic in 2019 and has been a wonderful addition to our team. She is currently working full-time and taking on a full-time school schedule to work towards applying to veterinary school soon. She also has a wonderful senior dog who spends all her time and loves bits and pieces.
Crystal is the best practice manager the clinic could ever ask for. She has worked alongside Dr. Divine now for over 17 years! When she isn’t at the practice, she spends time with her husband and two wonderful sons. She has one puppy and two rescued kitties.
Shelbi is a fairly new addition to our clinic but not to veterinary medicine. She has been a Technician for six years and is a Texas native but has been in Missouri for the last two years. She has been an amazing asset to our team, and when she isn’t assisting in surgery or performing dental cleanings, she is spending time with her husband and their three dogs!
Natalynn is our newest and youngest employee. She joined the practice fall of 2021 and is currently a very dedicated AP high school student. She is working primarily on the weekends taking care of boarding patients but will be more involved when school is not is session. Of course she loves animals especially her own three, an adorable Boston terrier, a beautiful cat and a crested gecko
Emily is an important part of our team here at the clinic and has been with us for over five years now. She is currently a full-time student finishing an occupational therapy practitioner degree. However, this past year, she realized that her passion in life is staying here in the veterinary medicine field and hopes to enroll in a veterinary degree program in the near future. She is a huge animal person, and whenever she isn’t working or at school, she spends her time with her precious dog.
Abigale joined us this summer during all the chaos that the pandemic of 2020 brought. She has a passion for animals and has two dogs of her own. She is also a full-time college student and plans on staying in the veterinary field forever.
Stephanie joined us this year with 19 years of experience in veterinary medicine. She is a Registered Veterinary Technician and a native of Southern California. She and her husband, two daughters, and a small zoo of animals include two dogs, a senior cat, Panther Chameleon, Sulcata tortoise, and several Ball pythons. As a family, they enjoy adventuring outside and spending time with their extended family, who have relocated to the Ozarks.
