Dustin Henwood, DVM
As an only child I developed a passion for animal care, happily taking every orphaned creature under my wing. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a veterinarian. I felt compelled to understand each animal’s needs in order to give them a voice. I discovered emergency medicine early in my career and was immediately drawn to the high-intensity nature of the job. More than anything, I enjoy leading a team of people to achieve something meaningful and important: helping animals in dire need.
Becoming a practice owner of an urgent care clinic is a lifelong dream come true. It is a culmination of all the things I get most excited about: animal care, emergency medicine, entrepreneurship, and leading from the heart. It is my mission to help cultivate a work culture that inspires kindness, collaboration, personal growth, and a sense of purpose in each of our lives in order to best serve our community.
