From Dr Young
I grew up in El Paso, Texas and cleaned my first cage as a junior in high school. I received my doctoral degree in Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 1981 from Texas A&M, and gained my specialty designation in canine and feline medicine from the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) in 2000.
I started Harris Parkway Animal Hospital in 1985. 30 years later I'm still cleaning cages.
