“Our passion here is keeping pets healthy and providing a loving and secure environment in which they are treated.”

I graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine with a Bachelor and Doctorate in 1994. My first position was in Castroville working with Dr. Dan McGrath at the old Tejas Animal Clinic. I purchased the Lytle Veterinary Clinic in 1996 and have been here ever since. Although we started out as a 50/50 mixed animal clinic, times have changed, and we primarily serve small animal patients, some exotics and sheep, and goats. We still provide house call visits for people who are unable to travel to our office. We understand every pet we treat has an owner. That’s why we strive to help owners keep their pets healthy through client education and excellent communication. Our passion here is keeping pets healthy and providing a loving and secure environment in which they are treated. We invite you to join our efforts in giving your pet the best quality of life possible.

“We strive to provide an excellent experience for our clients and their pets through our facilities, employees, and customer service.”

I am originally from Lubbock, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University. After college, I worked for 15 years in the oil industry. I met my wife, Dr. Trisha Broach while she was attending veterinary school at Texas A&M. We settled in Castroville, Texas, and I worked at Medina Electric Coop for ten years. In 2008, I had the opportunity to work at the Lytle Veterinary Clinic as the practice manager, making it a family business. We strive to provide an excellent experience for our clients and their pets through our facilities, employees, and customer service.

“My wish is that every day I can make another person’s day better.”

I have worked at the Lytle Veterinary Clinic for 15 years, with the exception of 18 months following the birth of my son in 2009. I have had the opportunity to learn most of the duties and procedures at the clinic over the years. What I enjoy the most is to hold a scared pet and be able to set their fears aside and give them a serene kind of peace that only love can give. I enjoy all kinds of animals, but I hold a special place in my heart for birds. My wish is that every day I can make another person’s day better.

“I felt God was leading me to pursue my passion for animals in the direction of veterinary medicine.”

I grew up in West Texas where we spent our weekends on horseback chasing sheep and goats and around 4th grade, moved to Devine. While attending elementary, Jr. High and High School, I joined the 4-H and later FFA to show breeder hogs. I also had the opportunity to hunt hogs and be around a lot of dogs too. Although my college career initially took me to teaching High School in Devine for a few years, my passion for working with animals has never left me. After much prayer, I felt God was leading me to pursue my passion for animals in the direction of veterinary medicine. I’m back in college in preparation for veterinary school and started working at the Lytle Veterinary Clinic in 2014.

“The best part of my job is helping to make sick patients feel better and helping to keep our healthy patients healthy.”

I was born in Waco, Texas in 1988, but became a resident of Lytle in 1992. I always knew that I wanted to work with animals. I began working at the Lytle Veterinary Clinic in 2007 and graduated from Lytle High School the same year. Knowing that I wanted to be a veterinary technician, I began my college career at Palo Alto Community College and graduated in 2010 as a Registered Veterinary Technician. While continuing to work at the Lytle Veterinary Clinic, I married my husband and moved to Devine where I currently live with my six dogs, six cats and a flock of chickens. The best part of my job is helping to make sick patients feel better and helping to keep our healthy patients healthy.

“I enjoy taking care of animals because all pets are family and deserve some like me to take care of them so they can live long, happy lives.”

I have lived in Lytle my whole life, and I’m a 2015 graduate from Lytle High School. I am now attending Palo Alto Community College to major in the Veterinary Technician program. I enjoy taking care of animals because all pets are family and deserve someone like me to take care of them so they can live long, happy lives.
