Our Veterinarians

Dr. Kothmann

The knowledge to heal your pet…

Even as a small child, Dr. Kothmann had a calling to animals. By the time he was in first grade, he had already acquired a reputation in his neighborhood as the kid who cares for pets. His gift was so apparent that his fifth grade teacher wrote him a letter at the end of the school year encouraging him to attend veterinary school at Texas A&M. So, it was only natural that he became a veterinarian. Over the last 2 decades, Dr. Kothmann has helped thousands of pets enjoy long, healthy lives.

  • B.S., Veterinary Science, Texas A&M University, 1983

Learning that never stops…

There are no shortcuts to the knowledge it takes to save a puppy from parvo or treat a tomcat for dogfight wounds. So, despite Dr. Kothmann's extensive experience, he still regularly exceeds the annual Texas state requirements for continued training to stay abreast of the latest breakthroughs in veterinary care.

Committed to growth and sharing…

Through professional membership, Dr. Kothmann meets with fellow professionals and shares the latest advancements in veterinary medicine.

He also takes great pleasure in sharing his knowledge with the community and regularly talks to school children about the joys of being a veterinarian, often opening his offices to students interested in animal medicine.

Dr. Bunting's professional interests include cardiology, wound healing, ultrasound, and preserving the human-animal bond.


In her free time she enjoys hiking, snowboarding, playing basketball, and Aggie Football. She is happy to be back in Texas and is looking forward to spending more time with her two nephews and niece.
