Longview Animal Hospital is pleased to announce that they have received the Texas Veterinary Heritage Practice Award at the 2017 Annual Conference and Expo of the Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) which took place in College Station in early March. The award recognizes practices of veterinary medicine in Texas that have been in continuous operation for 50 years or more.
“We are honored to be recognized by the TVMA. Our practice has a wonderful and rich history of providing quality care for animals since 1949”, stated Jill Foye, Practice Manager. Longview Animal Hospital is the oldest continuously operating vet clinic in the area.
The practice, originally named Longview Veterinary Hospital, was established in 1949 by Dr. Alec Sears. It has changed owners several times over its long history: Dr. Jack Clayton (Owner from about 1950-1952); Dr. Bob Terrell (1952-1994); Dr. Christina Odom (1994-2011).
In 2011, the practice was taken over by Dr. Brian Foye (Owner from 2011 to present). Located at 2500 Estes Parkway, just south of the location where Estes divides and turns into High Street and Mobberly Avenue, the clinic underwent a facelift and a slight name change to Longview Animal Hospital. Dr. Foye added a second exam room, and state-of-the-art medical equipment, fresh paint and new decor. He has since doubled the size of his team, added a third exam room, purchased an ultrasound and upgraded his x-ray machine to digital.
Dr. Brian Foye graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1991 and received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. A native Texan, having grown up in the Dallas area, he said he couldn’t wait to get back to his home state to start his veterinary career. Before taking over the practice in Longview, he worked at Westlake Animal Hospital in Austin, Texas and Marshall Animal Hospital. “We appreciate the TVMA honoring this historic practice. I’ve been blessed to have owned it these past 5 years and look forward to many, many more!” shared Dr. Foye.
