Meet the friendly staff at Western Hills Animal Medical & Surgical Clinic!
Justus was born in Amarillo and lived there until moving to Houston in the 5th grade. Justus has always loved animals but decided to join the veterinary field after the family dog, Lilly, was attacked by a mountain lion or cougar. Watching the vet help Lilly recover from her injuries made Justus so happy and led to the inspiration to become a vet. This event has made Justus want to help other animals and be their voice.
As a kennel technician, Justus enjoys helping the doctor and assistants as well as feeding the animals. Justus is still in school and lives with parents, a brother, and a sister, as well as a cat named Zelda. Zelda is the nicest and clingiest cat you’ll ever meet!
Outside of working at Western Hills, Justus enjoys hunting, fishing, and watching baseball. A few years back, Justus caught a 6-foot-long water moccasin!
