Todd Jewell, DVM, Associate Veterinarian
I joined the team at VCA Pahle Animal Hospital in September 2006, where we are blessed with a very dedicated, knowledgeable and supportive staff that truly makes our job so much easier. I have really come to enjoy the close relationships that I have developed over the years with our clients and their family (pets).
I attended the University of Texas-Arlington for my Bachelors - studying architecture & biology. I attended Kansas State University for my Doctorate and then followed with a year of advanced training in a medical/surgical internship at Carolina Veterinary Specialists in Charlotte. Over time, I have developed a passion for various parts of my job including: imaging (ultrasound), dentistry, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.
I was born and raised in Texas, where most of my family still lives (whom I miss and try to visit often). My journey to get here has been winding, but I certainly couldn't have done it without the support of my family and friends. I am proud of many accomplishments in my life including becoming an Eagle Scout, becoming a Veterinarian and certainly my faith in God. Yes, I am a fan of the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers, but I have also come to love and support the Brewers and Packers, too. I enjoy just about anything outdoors including travel, camping, photography, beach volleyball, hiking/backpacking, fishing, running (when chased), or just relaxing with friends over a meal, a coffee, or at a beer garden.
I currently have two cats (down from 2 dogs, 4 cats & a rat). Charlotte is a sweet, shy yet talkative short haired kitty & Riley is a three-legged orange Maine Coon, who's not the smartest, but I love him dearly. Beyond my current crew, one of my favorite pets was my pet rat, Wheezie. She was such a sweet, entertaining character. The cats were scared of her. When she out of her cage, she would come to you when called.
