Small-Animal Associate Veterinaria
Dr. Betsy Pratt joined the Hutto Veterinary Clinic in May 2012, as a small-animal associate veterinarian. She has wanted to be a vet since high school when she discovered that her original plan to be a human doctor was not really the right career path for her.
Dr. Pratt received her bachelor’s degree in biomedical science in 2006 from Texas A&M University, graduating summa cum laude. She went on to earn her DVM from A&M in 2011, graduating magna cum laude.
As a young student, Dr. Pratt, a graduate of Stony Point High School in Round Rock, worked at a local summer camp, teaching children how to take care of their pets. She also began working as a kennel technician at the Round Rock Animal Hospital, gradually working her way up to veterinary technician.
Dr. Pratt took a few months off after vet school to help with an ailing family member, then she began working at shelters and doing relief work in the Austin and Round Rock areas.
When she’s not working, Dr. Pratt enjoys spending time with her family in Round Rock.
She also makes sure her dogs, Riley, 11, a female shepherd mix, and her “newest” dog, Charlie, a 10-year-old shepherd mix, get plenty of exercise. Charlie was a client whose owners couldn’t keep him, so Dr. Pratt generously decided she needed another dog to fill the void left with the demise of her beloved dog, Autumn, a year or so before she met Charlie. Dr. Pratt’s 19-year-old cat died a few years ago.
Now that she’s been at the Hutto clinic for more than three years, and seen just about every type of medical issue, Dr. Pratt has developed a special affinity for wound management, soft tissue surgery and preventive maintenance.
Dr. Pratt enjoys treating the pets of all the established and loyal Hutto Veterinary Clinic clients. She also welcomes our many new folks. She especially likes seeing the brand new puppies and kittens and wants to help them grow into healthy, happy pets.
