Compassionately serving Denton, Krum, Ponder, Justin and beyond for over 35 years.

Ponder Veterinary Hospital was established in 1975 by Dr. Phillip Henderson the day after he graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine.  For many years he provided veterinary care to both large and small animals.  Today, the Hospital is owned by Dr. Chris Norwood focusing primarily on small animal medicine and surgery.

Our clients and patients are our friends! We enjoy providing excellent medicine and surgery with state of the art facilities and technology in our small town atmosphere
