He and his wife Kathy missed Southwest Virginia from their time in Blacksburg and were excited when an opportunity became available to become the new practice owners of the Pet Clinic in Rocky Mount.
Dr. Lorens enjoys developing a personal relationship with his clients and patients.  He has a particularly strong interest in surgery and has helped many patients over the years with the wide range of surgical services that he is able to offer.  He also works closely with local animal rescue groups and enjoys being able to see what a difference good care makes for these neediest patients.  Dr. Lorens sees primarily dogs and cats but has seen quite a variety of patients over his career including ferrets, birds, rabbits, rats, snakes, sugar gliders, lizards, goats, chickens, turkeys, pigs, and many types of wildlife.
