History of Clinic:

Dr. Don McLeod’s Father, Dr. Tim McLeod started the clinic at it’s present location in 1954. Dr. Tim was one of 4-5 Veterinarians in Austin at the time he opened the clinic. Dr. Tim passed away in 2000 and Dr. Don has been Owner of the Austin Animal Clinic, Inc. since. The Clinic remains local, family owned and operated; built upon the foundation of compassion and customer service above all else. We pride ourselves in carrying on the family traditions set forth by Dr. Tim McLeod; who stood for integrity and personal care of every customer and their animal.
