About us

Dr. Lynn Foster DVM, CVA is proud to serve the Whitehouse, Tyler, and East Texas areas in providing quality and compassionate veterinary care for your pet. Dr. Foster is experienced in diagnostic medicine and surgery. She is one of only a few vets certified in veterinary acupuncture for dogs, cats, and horses (that's the "CVA" after her name). She is especially interested in geriatric medicine and animal behavior and offers home consultations and farm calls using her well-recognized mobile veterinary clinic.


Our veterinary clinic, located between Tyler and Whitehouse, is bright, clean and colorful, and we know you and your pet will love the open and friendly atmosphere.  We never "take your pet to the back" for procedures--you are welcome and encouraged to remain with your pet to comfort and reassure you both.

We strive to provide quality care at fair prices. We offer only the highest quality vaccines, at low cost. We keep our prices for heartworm preventatives and other medications competitive with internet prices, while ensuring that the products are the "real thing" by purchasing only from authorized distributors or directly from the drug manufacturers.

Our veterinary team is enthusiastically committed to educating our clients in all aspects of pet health, including weight control, good nutrition, vaccination schedules, and preventive care. We will do our best to ensure that you and your pet enjoy many healthy and happy years together.

Dr. Foster was voted "Outstanding Participating Veterinarian" in 2018 for her dedicated work with area high school FFA students, and students of all ages train at the clinic and assist with low-cost vaccination clinics in surrounding communities.
