Wolfforth vet known for helping animals, people

A love of people lured Christina Fletcher into veterinary practice, and love of a specific person lured her to Wolfforth.

“I love people, and when you love people as much as I do, you want to help their animals,” Fletcher said.

She has a talent with animals. “That was my way to help people. Plus, I love animals.”

Fletcher graduated from the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994 and bought a 50-year-old practice in Longview.

“I owned that practice for 18 years,” she said.

But then she met Lubbock auctioneer Bobby Fletcher, and they decided 500 miles between them would not work.

Since her children were grown and had come to the Lubbock area for school and internships, she made a decision.

“I was, like, ‘Let’s move West!’” Fletcher said.

Fletcher said since moving to the Lubbock area, she has grown to love the place and the people.

“It’s fantastic. The people are fantastic. Their animals are super nice,” she said.

The veterinarian has set up shop in a building Bobby Fletcher owns in Wolfforth at 821 U.S. 62/82, on the south access road.

Animal Medical of Wolfforth’s hours are Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“We have a wonderful doctor,” receptionist Kris Lopez said of Fletcher. “She’s very friendly.”

Fletcher said her clinic will serve small animals such as dogs and cats, primarily, but she said she can handle pocket pets, snakes, birds and even some horse issues.

“We pretty much do everything, but it’s primarily a clinic set up for small animals here,” Fletcher said. “We put an emphasis on preventative medicine here. We don’t want the animal to get sick.”
