Away from a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the hot blueness on the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare feet, extending from his overalled legs, crackled versus the fallen palmettos. He leaped into your air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling over him.

North Springs Animal Clinic is a sister clinic to Vernon Woods Animal Hospital and Lenox Pet Hospital at Brookhaven. Meet the Business Owner Dr. Jay Empel grew up in Montgomery, Alabama. As a child he raised Manchester Terriers and his determination to take care of his puppies inspired him to become a veterinarian.
He obtained his undergraduate degree from The University of Georgia in 1966 and his doctorate degree in veterinary medicine from Auburn University in 1970. In 1973 he founded Vernon Woods Animal Hospital (VWAH) with Dr. Ray Dunahoo. Since that time he has enjoyed watching it grow from a 2-doctor and 1-secretary practice to a practice employing over thirty people, including seven doctors. He currently serves as medical director of VWAH.
He loves the personal relationships that he has been able to foster with employees, clients and patients. He has special interests in internal medicine, dermatology, dentistry, and some orthopedic procedures. Dr. Empel has been married to Elise for over thirty years. They have three children (Andrew, Ivy and Ashley)--two of which are also veterinarians!
