DVM, Ohio State University


Holly Pappas, DVM was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. She decided to become a veterinarian when, at eight years old, she and her father took her beloved boxer puppy to the vet for the first time. She attended Ohio State University for 8 years, earning both her undergraduate degree in animal science and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. She then spent the next 10 years practicing small animal medicine in Chicago and the Chicago suburbs. When she is not practicing medicine, Dr. Pappas enjoys reading, working out, scuba diving and sky diving!  She is thrilled with the opportunity to live and work in Texas and warns the Aggies to watch out, there is a Buckeye in town. She has two lovely domestic short haired cats - Braveheart and Mullen.
