Our Team



Dr. Gail Bushur-Irwin grew up on a dairy and quarter horse farm and is the youngest of 10 children. She went to Lakeland Community College and graduated from the University of Illinois with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2003. Dr. Gail is known for compassion and building great relationships with clients and enjoys being part of a caring team that’s focused on practicing high-quality medicine. Over the years, she has found her favorite parts of practicing have been surgery, learning new methodologies, and bonding with her patients. Dr. Gail loves to volunteer to help less fortunate pets by donating her time and skills to give pets a second chance at a great life.

Dr. Gail has lived in Texas for two years with her husband, son, and her goats and quarter horses. She and her family love to share their farm with others, so they can experience livestock up-close – many, for their first time, and they ride and compete with their quarter horses.

Dr. Gail belongs to the AVMA, TVMA, and is licensed to practice in Texas and Illinois.

She's never worked any other job that felt so rewarding!
