Within Our Community
Being a rural veterinarian involves more than providing care to livestock and pets. The rural practitioner needs to be an active member of the community. At CTVH we have taken this to heart and encourage involvement throughout Montague and the surrounding counties. Our team members are active in service organizations, the Chamber of Commerce, the local FFA and 4-H chapters, and our local Child Welfare Board. We mentor Junior High, High School and Undergraduate students across North Texas and help instruct the High School level Certified Veterinary Assistant training program. Our Veterinarians teach at Bowie High School, North Central Texas College, Texas A&M Stephenville and The College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M. We also provide presentations for the TSCRA and local breed associations. We volunteer at the Child welfare fair, the local sports concession stand and entertain school tours through the clinic. CTVH has integrated our veterinary student extern program into our care for the local shelter, providing discounted spays and neuters and preventative health care.
