Dr. Edmund Meier, Jr
Edmund Meier, Jr. is the owner of Leon Valley Veterinary Hospital. Edmund knew he wanted to be a veterinarian from the time he was a small boy, raising a menagerie of animals from sheep and goats to chickens and pigeons. Growing up a half-mile from the hospital, Edmund brought all of his animals for treatment here.
It was no surprise, then, when he graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Science in 1988, and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. After obtaining his DVM, he went to work for the owner and eventually bought Leon Valley Veterinary Hospital, his home-away-from-home, in March 2001.
Dr. Meier tells us about his hobbies outside of work:
My interests include Indian artifact hunting, which provides good wholesome family fun. It is also calming and can be quite an adventure! I also take pleasure in hunting and fishing in the great outdoors. My favorite way of relaxing is tending to my homegrown garden, so my family and I can enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Dr. Meier describes his home life:
I've been married 28+ years now to my beautiful wife Susan. My 3 children are Trevor, a graduate from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s in science, who’s attending veterinary school, Brandon, a United States Marine, and Allyson, a sailor in the United States Navy.
Before my children graduated, we took pride in is raising pigs. We enjoyed competing together at the 4-H and FFA levels, and we showed pigs on the national level, as well. I still enjoy working with the FFA & 4H youth.
