Dr. McLin grew up on a ranch in south central Oklahoma. Before veterinary school, he enjoyed a successful music career touring in an award winning band. After being accepted to veterinary school, he traded his guitar in for a stethoscope. Dr. McLin received his B.S. in Animal Science at Oklahoma State University before completing his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. Dr McLin then began his new career in Decatur, Texas in a mixed practice where he was able to pursue his interest in equine medicine. In 2004 Dr. McLin was offered a position at a leading equine embryo transfer facility and moved back to Oklahoma. Later, he went on to establish a successful equine practice. Due to multiple injuries, Dr. McLin shifted his veterinary practice to small animals. After working a few shifts in a small animal ER, he was hooked and has been working exclusively in emergency medicine since 2015.
Dr. McLin lives on the family ranch helping manage a cow/calf operation and an equine embryo transfer recipient herd. When he is not working at AEHM or ranching, Dr. McLin also serves on the local fire department as the assistant chief. He also enjoys playing guitar, medical mission trips to central America, and spending time with his 3 children and lovely wife.
His professional interests include emergent treatment of snake bite envenomation, trauma and toxicities.
