About Us

Our Veterinarians

Thank you for making us the #1 Veterinarian in the Waco, Texas Area (2016 Locals Love Us)!


The Hewitt Veterinary Hospital difference starts with you…the Hewitt and Greater Waco pet owner. You and your pets are what make our team at Hewitt Veterinary Hospital begin each day excited to come to work. You’ve heard the quote, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Well, the veterinary professionals at Hewitt Veterinary Hospital consider it a privilege to take care of your pets. We love what we do, and you’ll feel that love with every encounter.

Hewitt Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1983 by Dr. Layne Gregory, working by himself as the single staff member in a small facility on Hewitt Drive in Hewitt, Texas. The practice has progressively evolved over the past three decades into a thriving veterinary hospital that continues to focus on compassionately serving every patient and client with the highest quality medical care.

Recently, our longtime Associate Veterinarian, Dr. Kristin Dodson (Baylor Univ. BA 1999 / Texas A&M DVM 2004) became the proud new owner of the practice as Dr. Gregory passes the torch and begins to prepare for retirement sometime in the future.

Our goal, as we look toward a bright future, is that Hewitt Veterinary Hospital would carry out the vision and legacy that Dr. Gregory has built over the past 30 years, maintaining a strong focus on serving our patients, clients, team members, and community.

At Hewitt Veterinary Hospital, we treat your pets like the treasured family members they are.
