torsch.jpgDr. Andy Torsch grew up in Louiville Kentucky and attended the University of Kentucky. He came to Alabama upon his acceptance to the College of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University where he graduated with his classmate and current partner Dr. Shane West in 1984. Andy moved to Birmingham in 1993 with his wife Martha and their four children and practiced at Patton Chapel Animal Clinic and Vestavia Animal Clinic before opening Main Street Animal Clinic with Dr. McClure and Dr. West in September of 2003.

Away from work, Andy enjoys many outdoor sports and watching college sports, especially basketball (Go UK!), and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

Dr. Torsch likes all aspects of veterinary medicine particularly his time spent in the exam room with his clients and their pets.


frank.jpgGrowing up in central Kentucky, Dr. McClure spent much of his childhood on the farms of his relatives. He experienced working with the animals and knew then that he wanted to be in a profession that involved animals. He still dreams about driving a tractor some day.

Frank completed his undergraduate work at the University of Kentucky and remains loyal to "The Big Blue". He came to our clinic in 1991, following his graduation from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University.

Dr. McClure married his wife Lisa in 1991 following their graduation from veterinary school. His wife was a classmate and is also a doctor of veterinary medicine. They have two sons, Scott and Mark.. The entire family plays tennis and they frequently enjoy competitive family matches. His family enjoys almost any activity that involves the outdoors.

Frank enjoys the quality medicine and surgery that the clients and staff of Main Street Animal Clinic make possible. He has a particular interest in client education as he feels that an educated pet owner is better able to help him help his patient.



Dr. Vaughn Traywick was raised in Homewood, AL.  He attended  Mississippi  State University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree (2008).  Despite being an obnoxious Alabama fan, Dr. Traywick went to vet school at Auburn University where he graduated with Honors and received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2012.  Dr. Traywick was the proud recipient of the Small Animal Medical Achievement Award in his class.  He has a special interest in Dermatology, Internal Medicine, and Surgery.  When he's not working, Dr. Traywick loves unwinding at the lake with his 2 mutts.  He also loves to fish all day and work on the family boat.  He is also an avid homebrewer!
