Fishers Veterinary Associates has an excellent team of veterinarians. We have the benefits of a large practice, with the ability for extensive consultations on cases and specialized care in many areas. We also have the benefits of the personal attention and continuity of care that comes from developing a "family doctor" relationship over many years. Our doctors share duties at the main hospital and at our outpatient clinics. Our veterinarians hold to high standards of medical care, cutting-edge clinical knowledge, ethics, and compassion. While all our veterinarians have outstanding medical and surgical skills, we certainly encourage you to choose the doctor or doctors you may prefer.
Dr. David Brown founded Fishers Veterinary Associates with the opening of Fishers Veterinary Hospital in 1979. He is a 1977 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and completed a one-year internship at South Shore Veterinary Hospital in Boston in 1978. Dr. Brown has a wide-ranging interest, knowledge, and skill in medical and surgical care. He has been very active in Fishers and Carmel for many years, including Hamilton County 4-H, youth sports programs, and the Humane Society.
