First of all, I would like to say thank you for looking at our website! We are really excited to bring compassionate, thorough, personalized veterinary medicine to you and your pets.
If you are wondering who Dr. Missy is, I can give you that background! Although I have only been back in the Valley for about eight years, I was born in Harlingen and raised in Los Fresnos. I graduated from Los Fresnos High School and went on to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Next, I ventured to College Station and received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M University in 2000. Some of you may remember me when I practiced in Brownsville and Port Isabel in 2000 and 2001 – at that time I was known as Dr. Denny.
Why did I leave, you ask? Well, you can say that I did it for love. My husband, CarlosBruce, and I were married in 2001 at Dolphin Cove. After that, we lived in San Antonio where I practiced at Henderson Pass Animal Hospital for 6 years, where I was the medical director. I really enjoyed getting to know my patients over the years and helping them to live longer, healthier lives by utilizing (at least) yearly thorough examinations coupled with biochemical (blood) testing. I instituted junior and senior wellness programs which helped me sometimes find abnormalities that we could correct before the pet was showing signs of illness.
During our time in San Antonio, we added 2 human members to our family. Our first son, Noah, was born in 2002, and our second son, Jude, came along in 2005. We have 3 Boston Terriers: Cracker, Pollie and Wacamole, as well as, one Golden named Bentley.
So, now you are probably wondering what brought us back to the Valley. That one is easy – our family and the constant support that they provide to us.
In addition to meeting me, you will also meet my technician Amanda Armenta. She shares the same compassion for our patients and their owners. I know you will enjoy working with her as much as I do.
We look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!
