The History of Dearing Veterinary Clinic

Dearing Veterinary Clinic was opened by Dr Dearing in 1982. Dr Dearing enjoys the challenge of being current, competent, and innovative in the treatment of many species of animals. The clinic began as a small office for small animals and some pens for horses and cattle. The top was built over the pens in 1984. The Horse barn was built in 1985. The two story 6,000 square foot building that serves as the small animal clinic was built in 1987. Doctor Ueckert joined the practice in 1992. He became a partner in 1994. The equine surgical suite, knockdown room, ICU stall, and roomy treatment area was built in the year 2000. This completed the vision for a clinic that can supply first class care to all species. The clinic continues to expand and provide additional diagnostic, surgical, and medical care for all types of animals. The Dearing clinic has become a leader in Central Texas Veterinary Care.

The case load grew and additional Doctors were needed. The idea of a group of doctors working together and learning from each other led to our expansion to other clinics. Our practice philosophy of viewing each patient as an opportunity to improve the well being of the animal has served us well in each clinic we open. Big Country Veterinary Clinic was our first satellite clinic. We then added the Anson Veterinary Clinic. In recent years we added the Ridgemont Veterinary Clinic.

With a full staff of veterinarians and technicians, along with state of the art medical diagnostic equipment and one of a kind facilities (much of which was designed by Dr. Dearing and Dr. Ueckert themselves) , they lead the way in small animal and livestock medicine.

Our loyal customers and those who have just begun to join us can all say that the Dearing Veterinary Clinic is an honest and fair priced clinic, and we truly care for your pets and their well being.
