It is with deep sorrow to inform you of the passing of Dr. Kirk Kothmann.

Dr. K was born on May 5, 1959 in San Angelo, Texas to Carleton and Barbara Rue Kothmann.

In 1994, Dr. Kothmann and his wife moved to Bulverde, TX and founded Bulverde Animal Hospital. At the age of five years old, he knew he wanted to be a veterinarian. He graduated from Texas A&M in 1985 with a doctor’s degree in veterinarian medicine. In the same year, he met his wife, Theressa (Powell) Kothmann from Sulphur Springs, TX. In 1995, they opened Bulverde Animal Hospital. Their motto was to treat their client’s pets as family.

Bulverde Animal Hospital WILL remain open. Dr. Wood will continue to be with us and we are working hard to locate another veterinarian.

However, our office will be closed from December 9 to December 14 to allow our staff to attend and mourn the passing of their leader.
