Founded in the 1950s, Canadian Vet Clinic was established by local ranchers to bring veterinary care to the area. In 1964, Dr. Patrick K. Crouch came to Canadian as a recent graduate from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine, before serving over seas for three years in the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps. Upon returning stateside, Dr. Crouch worked in several veterinary clinics until ultimately returning to Canadian to purchase the practice in January of 1970. Dr. Crouch and the practice have been happily serving Canadian and surrounding communities ever since.
