Our Story

For over 40 years, Travis Country Veterinary Hospital has provided comprehensive and loving care to Austin pets.In 1976, a local veterinarian started an animal hospital in the countryside just outside Austin. Located off of Highway 290, near Oak Hill, Travis Country Veterinary Hospital was a country clinic surrounded by open fields. True to his roots, he delivered honest and high-quality care to his neighbors' animals.

As Austin grew, so did the hospital. In 1984, Dr. Corky Trlica, A&M '73, purchased the animal hospital from his classmate and continued to grow the practice. In 2008, Dr. Lauren Buys, A&M ’08 joined the practice, followed by Dr. Chuck Clinton, A&M ’73 in 2010.
