The East Montgomery County Improvement District would like to welcome Dr. Zach Stevenson and the Big Thicket Veterinary Clinic to New Caney by holding an open house at the clinic, located at 18403 FM 1485 West. The open house, which will serve as an opportunity for the public to meet Dr. Stevenson and his staff, will be held Friday, October 30 from 11 – 2 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.An Oklahoma native and graduate of Oklahoma State University, Dr. Stevenson has been in practice since 2003. After spending a year specializing in equine medicine in West Virginia, he decided to pursue opening his own small and large animal practice a little closer to home, purchasing the Big Thicket Veterinary Clinic in Cleveland, TX in 2004.
Eleven years later, he felt the time was right to expand. "New Caney is a growing area that needs a veterinarian. Why not go after the opportunity?" said Dr. Stevenson.
He looked to EMCID for financial support to help make his expansion possible.
"Whatever we can do to help," said Frank McCrady, EMCID President/CEO. "The medical field — whether geared toward animals or humans — is an area where services are lacking in our community, and we want to change that," said McCrady. "The Board has actively recruited these types of businesses. In the next couple of years I think you'll see many more attractive amenities."
EMCID has agreed to offset the public's cost of animal vaccinations at the clinic for a limited time. Look for a coupon for 20 percent off services in The Spotlight section of the October 21 print edition of the East Montgomery County Observer.
"I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone in East Montgomery County," said Dr. Stevenson.
