Dr. Terry Ford - Veterinarian
Dr. Terry Ford grew up in the Dallas neighborhood of Lake Highlands, and was always collecting animals: horses, cows, raccoons, roosters, and dogs.
He constantly built and disassembled items, marveling at the internal mechanics and physics. He worked in the kennel for White Rock Animal Clinic from the time he was fourteen, given responsibilities and privileges beyond the scope of his job. His love of horses led him to join the high school rodeo team and to work as a wrangler at summer camps and on cattle ranches. He was never without a dog by his side.
Intending to study engineering at Texas A&M University, in 1976, he decided to answer the call of veterinary medicine and enrolled in Animal Sciences instead. Graduating Magna Cum Laude, he was accepted by Texas A&M Veterinary School into the class of 1984. Upon graduation, he married and began to practice in Carrollton where he honed his surgical skills, combining his love of engineering and animal experience. Four years later he founded North Dallas Veterinary Hospital.
After hours, Dr. Ford enjoys tennis, photography, and spending time with his wife and two sons. Coincidentally, while both sons attend Texas A&M, one son is majoring in engineering while the other is pursuing a degree in Animal Sciences!
