Passionate about helping animals and those who care for them, Dr. Hawkins looks forward to serving customers
Continuing on the legacy of customer-centric technical service, Valley Vet Supply is pleased to welcome Tony Hawkins, DVM, to its longstanding Technical Service veterinarian team.
Recently transitioning into his Technical Service role following years in practice, Dr. Hawkins said, “I am looking forward to providing more of a broad instruction to help those caring for animals, whether large or small, and continuing to use my knowledge garnered over the years to help others best provide for their horses, livestock and pets.”
A lifelong Kansas resident hailing from Silver Lake, Kansas, Dr. Hawkins attended Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. There, he placed focus on mixed-animal practice. Before joining Valley Vet Supply, Dr. Hawkins practiced veterinary medicine in Marysville, Kansas, where he was greatly involved in cattle health. He also is treasured by the community for his care of horses and pets, through wellness appointments and surgery.
“I enjoy helping the animals and taking care of their health issues,” said Dr. Hawkins. “I also enjoy helping people just as much. I just have a deep caring for animals, and I view them as part of the family. I also understand first-hand their importance from a production and herd health aspect.”
Dr. Hawkins met his wife, Carolyn, at Kansas State University while both were in pre-veterinary medicine. They have four children – Avery (7), Gavin (5), Rylee (3) and Brody (6 months). Both animal lovers, their family has two dogs, Reese (Australian Shepherd) and Fynn (Bichon Shih Tzu), a cat, and over the summer months, they run stocker-yearling calves.
Dr. Hawkins is an exciting addition to the longstanding Technical Service veterinarian team, the future of Valley Vet Supply, and the overall mission to best serve customers and their animals.
In 1985, veterinarians Arnold Nagely, DVM and Ray Shultz, DVM founded Valley Vet Supply to ensure animal owners everywhere had access to medications and other supplies to best care for their animals. Visit ValleyVet.com for more information and supplies to support horses, livestock and pets.
