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.
