About Us


L.K. Knowles, DVM, is the owner, manager, and veterinarian for Veterinary Medical Care of Texas. Dr. Knowles received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A & M University in 1986, as well as a B. S. in Animal Science in 1984. Dr. Knowles attended East Texas State University (now Texas A & M at Commerce) as an undergraduate, receiving a B.B.A. in 1977.

Spending much of his youth in an East Texas rural setting, Dr. Knowles has experience owning and raising cattle, horses, and swine. He worked a mixed practice for 5 years and was the owner of Knowles Veterinary Clinic in Whitehouse, Texas from 1988 till 1999. Since the sell of that clinic, he has done various relief services and owned several locations of spay and neuter facilities. He began his current practice of low cost vaccinations in earnest in 2006. He now, and for the past 22 years, works exclusively on dogs and cats.

"Kip", as he is called by his friends, lives in the DFW metroplex with his red hairy dog, Ben, and his 20 lb. cat, Jonah. He enjoys helping people. He saw the need in the public for low cost alternatives for basic veterinary services and has found that supplying that need is very satisfying for everyone involved.
