Cornerstone Animal Hospital has been part of the Joplin community under the leadership of Donald Loden, DVM, and Rebecca Conrad, DVM, since 1985. The doctors decided to name the clinic to reflect their value system. After much thought and discussion, the name that was selected was Cornerstone Animal Hospital, because Jesus Christ is the Cornerstone of their lives.

January 1,2013, Dr. Linda Shilling Scorse of Joplin Veterinary Hospital merged her practice with Cornerstone. Joplin Veterinary Hospital had been on 7th street for 42 years. The three doctors had worked in separate practices since 1985 but had consulted with each other. This merger worked out well for all the clients and future clients because the three doctors contain a wealth of knowledge in different fields within the compass of small and exotic animal medicine. The combined years of practice is greater than 100 years.
