In 1984, Dr. Rusty Tracy graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A & M. A year later, he established Tracy Animal Hospital and set out to provide dedicated and quality care holding fast to the idea that veterinary care should be accessible and affordable in order to help as many patients as possible. Over the next 36 years, Dr. Tracy stayed true to these values and as the veterinary field grew, he developed a loyal and trusted following of clients who knew he would only recommend what their pet needed. His commitment, dedication, drive, and work ethic were passed on and nurtured in his children. His son, Dr. Tanner Tracy, chose to follow in his father’s footsteps and has worked alongside him at the practice for the last several years.
The number of lives Dr. Rusty Tracy has touched and the patient’s he’s saved since he began practicing cannot be quantified. After years of devotion, Dr. Tracy will be stepping down from practicing on a day-to-day basis. We don’t call this retirement as Dr. Tracy will still be a big part of the practice and will continue to help with surgeries and surgical consultations. He will now have the opportunity to spend more time with his lovely wife, Karen, his children, grandchildren, friends, and fur-babies. He’ll also be spending more time on his ranch tending to cattle!
Please help us thank Dr. Tracy for the countless moments that have made up the last 36 years. From sharing the joy in a client’s life when a new puppy or kitten would join the family, to solemnly sitting and mourning alongside you all as a beloved pet crossed the rainbow bridge, Dr. Tracy expresses his privilege and honor to have been able to be a part of each and every one of your lives and for trusting him with your fur-babies.
Please help us in also wishing Dr. Tanner Tracy well as he takes the reigns in his father’s stead and continues to provide the care that you all have come to know and expect of Tracy Animal Hospital.
To Our Dear Clients,
Over the last few days, our clinic took in about 2 feet of water. We're thankful that we were able to evacuate our patients and get them home to their owners, and we're thankful that our staff and their families are safe. But due to the damage sustained, our practice will be closed throughout the rest of this week and possibly the next. We will keep everyone posted and will be working our best to be able to open our doors again in order to help our beloved patients.
If your pet needs medical attention, consider these two practices for their care:
Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners
Routine Exam & Vaccination
Grant Road Animal Clinic
We are heartbroken to know that many people and friends in our community have lost so much, but are encouraged by the love and support we see all around us! We feel blessed to be part of this community and will continue to do our best and work hard to help rebuild. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Dr. Rusty Tracy
