Craig Verwers DVM

Craig Verwers

Dr. Verwers’ interest in veterinary medicine goes back to his freshman year at Western Hills

High School when he met a Fort Worth veterinarian and learned what a veterinarian did. He
started working for that veterinarian as a kennel assistant when he was 14 years old and
continued working with different veterinarians through high school and college. He received his
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A & M University College of Veterinarian Medicine.


Dr. Verwers lives on a small farm in the Aledo area. He raises sheep and currently has chickens, a chinchilla and of course dogs and cats. Mac is an Anatolian Shepard that guards the homestead protecting it from all unwanted four-legged creatures like coyotes and raccoons that might hurt the sheep or chickens. He has two black Labrador brothers-Todd and Jason. There is also a German Pinscher cross named Molly, and little Susie Q who doesn’t know that she is only six pounds.

Dr. Verwers’ desire is to partner with you to give your pet the longest, healthiest, and happiest life possible. He enjoys sharing the latest research and information on ways to make this goal possible. Important components to maintain good health are preventative lab work, good dental care, and quality nutrition as part of an overall preventative protocol. With a full in-house lab, digital x-ray, and radio and laser scalpels, he is able to do diagnostic procedures as well as many general surgeries.

In the past several years, Dr. Verwers has become an avid golfer; playing as often as three times a week when possible. His ongoing involvement with the Optimist and Rotary clubs is important to him because of the benefits they provide to the community and the friendships he has formed through them.
