We had the good fortune of connecting with Sally Everett and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sally, how has your background shaped the person you are today?

I am from a small town in West Texas, and I had the opportunity at an early age to be exposed to agriculture and raising and caring for animals. This played a significant role in my interest in animal welfare and husbandry.

I did not pursue initially the science classes that would be necessary to go to vet school, but the business degree I received was a perk in eventually becoming a practice owner. As a result, I did not have a direct path from school into medicine, working in a restaurant, Starbucks, a newspaper….all forming the business side of running a practice as well as practicing medicine.

Also, it is now trending to be less common for veterinarians to own their own business as corporations buy and operate clinics more and more. In addition, this is complicated by legally only a veterinarian or licensed practice manager can own a clinic, unlike in human medicine.

What should our readers know about your business?
Our practice was established 60 years ago when the area of Granbury was highly agricultural, and the business was mostly large animal, primarily cattle and horses. That has evolved into the demographic that we see today with Granbury’s popularity into more small animals.

Granbury has the amazing capacity to attract people who want to combine the lake with a small town feel and also be close to DFW amenities.

I love seeing dogs and cats as our primary clientele, but I also love that we have the capacity to see the cattle and horses to help local ranchers, pet owners with pot bellied pigs, and students with ag show projects.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth is such a gem of great restaurants, comedy clubs and the feel an older downtown you can walk around in. The rooftop on the Reatta Restaurant is one of my all-time favorite views of the downtown area. It makes a perfect evening to have a sunset cocktail. Follow it with a rooftop movie at the Worthington.

The Stockyards are a must-see, where they still have cattle drives daily. Follow it with award-winning restaurants, music venues, hotels, and great late night burgers.
