Our story began at a corporately owned veterinary practice. We had an instant connection and quickly developed a strong bond. We were both happy to be working in a career we loved, yet dreamed of something more.
We were the most recent hires at the practice, so we had time on our hands to learn, observe, and brainstorm how we might run a practice one day in the future. When the opportunity to buy a veterinary hospital presented itself, Lee was the first person I called. We found a hospital that we wanted to be a part of, with exceptional staff, doctors and clients, in a wonderful location. We haven’t looked back since. We enjoyed ownership so much that we could not pass up the opportunity to open a second hospital in Aledo.
We are different ages, male and female, at different stages in our lives, and we have had different life experiences that compliment each other. We each bring a unique perspective to the practice of veterinary medicine. These differences truly make our practice whole.
Dr. Lee Hampton
Dr. Lee Hampton’s dream began many years before he added the letters “DVM” to his name. At age seven, Dr. Hampton informed his parents he was going to be the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys or a veterinarian. His family is thankful he had a backup plan. Prior to becoming a practice owner, Dr. Hampton worked at the same clinic for over 15 years. He started in the kennel in high school, then worked as a technician while home on break from college and vet school, and he was hired as a veterinarian after graduation from vet school. Dr. Hampton has developed a special interest in small animal soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery, rehabilitation, and oncology. He is currently in the process of becoming a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) through the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine. He enjoys sharing his passion for the practice of veterinary medicine with his patients and clients.
Dr. Hampton was raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and he continued the family tradition of attending Texas A&M University. He graduated with undergraduate degrees in Biomedical Science and Animal Science in 2007, and then obtained his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. Dr. Hampton and his wife, Beth, have known each other since high school, when he made it his personal mission to help her have more fun in life. They continued dating through college and professional school, and they were married after Beth graduated from Baylor Law School. The Hamptons have one daughter, Mary Elizabeth, a golden retriever from Scotland named George, and recently have adopted a 10 year old golden retriever named Sofie. Dr. Hampton still loves watching football, along with caring for his small herd of black Angus cattle, listening to George Strait, watching the History Channel, hunting and fishing.
Dr. Tebbie Borgers
Before purchasing Parker County Veterinary Hospital from Dr. Jarrett, Dr. Tebbie Borgers had been practicing small animal veterinary medicine in the Fort Worth area for over 12 years. She worked for several VCA hospitals and most recently at Mellina Animal Hospital. Dr. Borgers has a special interest in pediatrics, dermatology, cardiology, internal medicine and small animal reproduction.
Dr. Borgers grew up in Dallas and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BA and JD degree. After practicing law in Houston for a few years, she decided it was not the career for her and went back to school to obtain her veterinary degree from Texas A&M University. Along the way, Dr. Borgers met and married her husband, Casey, and had three wonderful children, Luke, Charlotte and Noble. You may just see one of her future veterinarians helping out at the hospital! They also share their home with four dogs, Cannonball, Gypsy, Tatum and Kevin, and their cat, Tallulah. In her free time, Dr. Borgers enjoys spending time with her family and animals, being outdoors, doing yoga, watching sports, reading and doing puzzles.
