About Our Clinic:

Chisholm Trail Pet Clinic, Inc. was newly constructed in June 2003. We serve the small animal population and citizens of Montague and surrounding counties. Providing metroplex quality veterinary care with client education and Fear Free principles in a rural environment, we limit practice to the care of dogs and cats only.

Clinic services include wellness care, routine surgeries, in-house digital radiography, ultrasound sonography, full laboratory and pharmacy services (in-house & outside), dental care (dental suite w/ digital dental radiography) and limited boarding & grooming services.

Clinic hours are limited to 45 to 50 hours/week and emergency calls are covered by Cross Timbers Veterinary Hospital. The Chisholm Trail Pet Clinic is privately owned. Dr. Winingham is an IVPA member and would like to see the clinic remain privately owned after her own retirement. We have a current need for a full-time associate with buy-in / sell options available. Part-time associates are welcome to apply and will be seriously considered, as well.
