Ron Tenney, D.V.M
I am the founder of Oasis Animal Clinic. I am a native of Arizona, growing up in Prescott. I grew up on a ranch and spent many hours as a kid riding horses and doing chores. I realized at a young age that animals serve many purposes and have a big role in our lives. I decided to become a veterinarian expecting to move back to a small town and join a mixed animal practice (large and small animals). While attending Arizona State University, I began working in some local veterinary clinics and found a fascination with small animal medicine and surgery. I was drawn to the client-pet bond and the awesome opportunity veterinarians have to affect the quality of lives of pets and their owners. I knew then that this was the area of veterinary medicine that I wanted to pursue.
I attended Washington State University and graduated in 1982. Returning to Arizona, I opened Oasis Animal Clinic in December of that year.
In 1991, we moved from our original location on Dobson and Elliot Roads to our present location, here at 812 W. Warner Rd. in Chandler, Arizona.
My professional interests include advanced courses on pain management and best practice anesthetic protocols. Since 2006, I have had the opportunity to learn from and teach many veterinarians about advances in pain management.
Watching this practice grow and develop is really amazing. I am very grateful to have such an awesome team of doctors and staff to provide care to so many patients and their owners. We have come a long way in the past 25 years!
On the personal side, I am married to Marilyn Richardson Tenney and together we have 5 sons. Marilyn is a Licensed Social Worker specializing in Marriage, Family and Addiction. We live in Gilbert, where we have a Jack Russell named Jamie, a Yorkshire Terrier named Riley as well as a cat, Don Juan. My kids love pets. You never know, but some day there may be a Dr. Tenney junior in Veterinary Medicine.
From time to time, some of you have met our kids working around here or at the vaccination clinic. Currently, Brandon, the youngest is working part time here while completing his first year of college at Chandler/Gilbert Community College. His interests are marketing and business. The next oldest is Trevor. He is attending ASU and is planning to become a veterinarian. Troy is attending BYU and he too is in a Pre Med major. Gary is the second oldest of our sons and he recently graduated from NAU with his Masters degree in Psychology. In the fall of 2010 he will begin his PhD studies in Psychology. He is married to Angela Winward Tenney of Tempe and they have one son, Dillon. Our oldest son, Rhett is married to Sandee Brown Tenney and they are living near Heber, AZ where he is teaching High School English. They have 2 daughters and a son. It is true about grandkids being so great. (As the bumper sticker says, “If I had known that Grandkids were so fun, I would have had them first!”)
My interests and hobbies include scuba diving, playing racquetball, video editing and computers. Don’t ask to see any of my underwater videos unless you have some time on your hands. I also enjoy reading (especially history) and volunteering time for our church and other organizations. All of our family members are certified scuba divers and we love to travel and dive as a family. We have been able to see many beautiful areas and create vivid memories thanks to this sport.
