Meet Our Staff

 

 

Our Doctor:

   Dr. Bobby Cox is a 1975 graduate of Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. He grew up in a family of animal lovers. All during his childhood he had contact with dogs, horses and cattle. Dr. Cox had an interest in medicine that he acquired from his father who was an MD. His decision to become a veterinarian allowed him to combine his interest in medicine with his love for animals.

   Dr. Cox and his wife, Lisa, moved to Fannin County in 1978 and bought a practice in Wolfe City, Tx. In 1998 they opened a second veterinary clinic in Leonard, Texas. Leonard Animal Clinic quickly became the busier practice. The decision was made in 2004 to close the Wolfe City practice and focus on Leonard Animal Clinic. At that time, the facility in Leonard was enlarged and upgraded to provide for complete veterinary service for both small and large animals.

   The Cox's have two sons, Robby and Cody, plus four grandchildren. They live on the family farm in Ladonia. Dr. Cox's professional interests include continuing education, internal medicine, and medical imaging. In his spare time, he enjoys family and friends, fishing, traveling and riding his Harley.
