Description

At AM/PM Animal Hospital, we strive to provide the highest quality veterinary services to our community in the Austin area. We know that your pet has a special place in your heart, because that is how we feel about each and every one of our patients. Our owner and head veterinarian, Dr. Leanne Parker, and the rest of our clinical team, prioritize the health and happiness of the pets we treat, as well as our ability to communicate with their owners. We want to understand your pet’s unique needs, and because they can’t speak, it is crucial that we listen to you!

AM/PM Animal Hospital stands out from the crowd because we offer our services 24 hours a day. We are open for both regular business hours in addition to overnight hours for emergency purposes. If you experience an emergency, please do not hesitate to call us.

The two pillars of a successful veterinary practice are preventative medicine and sick care. If your pet is our regular patient, we will advise you on how to keep them glowing with health. If they happen to fall sick, we have an arsenal of diagnostic tools such as our own in-house lab and radiology equipment, to get to the bottom of their ailment and have them back on their feet.

Our most important goal is to facilitate a lifestyle for your pet that helps them to wag, purr, or play with utmost happiness and health, over a long and happy lifespan.

Leanne Parker, Owner & DVM
Leanne Parker, Owner & DVM

Dr. Leanne Parker is the owner, president, and head veterinarian of AM/PM Animal Hospital. In 1994, Dr. Parker graduated from Texas A&M University School of Veterinary Medicine with the honor of magna cum laude. Her years of experience in combination with her compassionate nature and leadership qualities guide our hospital team in offering outstanding care to clients and their pets.

Her career in veterinary medicine began on the Texas Gulf Coast in 1994. After moving to Austin in 1996, Dr. Parker soon became the lead associate veterinarian at AM/PM Animal Hospital. Several years later, in 2002, she purchased the practice and has been dedicated to its growth and success ever since.

Dr. Parker realized she wanted to work with animals at a young age. She recalls, “My family’s dachshund had several serious illnesses when I was a child. I remember feeling so powerless and wanting to be able to help him. When he would come home from the vet, he was like new again and I thought, ‘what a great profession!’ What could be better than caring for pets all day and helping them get healthy? It seemed like an amazing job to me and it is.”

Before attending veterinary school, in 1990, Dr. Parker earned her bachelor’s degree in biomedical science with the honor of summa cum laude from Texas A&M University. While working towards her degree, she proudly received the Gathright Award for two consecutive years for earning the highest grade point average in her major.

With the dream of becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Parker started working with the kennel staff at a local veterinary hospital for her first job. One of the technicians sensed her enthusiasm and quickly took her under her wing. Dr. Parker explains, “She helped me learn how to run tests, prepare for surgery, and so much else. It was so interesting and she made everything fun to learn.”

An avid volunteer, Dr. Parker volunteers her time with P.A.LS. (Pets Assisting the Lives of Seniors) and she also supplies donations to support Austin Pets Alive. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and Texas Veterinary Medical Association and has professional interests in internal medicine and dermatology.

At home, Dr. Parker and her husband, Owen, share a home with their sweet canine companion, Darby. In her free time, she enjoys gardening and traveling.

At AM/PM Animal Hospital, Dr. Theis is grateful for the community vibe and the willingness of everyone to fill multiple roles to get the job done.

Outside of the hospital environment, she enjoys spending time with friends, traveling, thrifting, and water activities, like paddle boarding, kayaking, and boating. She is also a fan of trying new restaurants and, presently, El Alma and Juiceland are her top picks in Austin.

Dr. Theis favors the Shih Tzu breed, bird dogs, and nice cats. Her first forever friends were a black Labrador named Bailey and a Parakeet named Casper. Currently, she has a German Shorthaired Pointer named Scout, who despite her size, can squeeze into any space or bed no matter how small.

Sara Davila, General Manager
Sara Davila, General Manager

Have you ever had a boss that makes you laugh, feel very comfortable with everything, runs the place effortlessly (seemingly), is stern when necessary, super knowledgeable, incredibly passionate about her job and has the greatest taste in music? That is just the type of human AM/PM was blessed with as our General Manager with Sara. Sara is what we like to refer to as an O.G here at the hospital. She has been rocking the place along side Dr. Parker since May of 1999! That is before Dr. Parker even owned the practice. Her responsibilities range far and wide. She may be the boss but she is never above stepping into any and all roles in the hospital. Primarily she oversees all of the workings of the clinic but she is initially a technician and then fills in absolutely everywhere she is needed. Sara’s most unique and greatly appreciated attributes are her strength, in many ways, and the ability to ease stressful situations with staff, clients and even the pets. We call her “the cat whisperer”.

Sara is one that knew her calling even in her tender child years. The goal was to work with animals and there was no obstacle life could throw that would put a halt on that dream. Animal related jobs are the only kind that she knows. Since her high school years, she started in kennel positions and eventually trained to become a master vet tech.

Pets? Of course! There is the oldest of the bunch, geriatric “Gillestina” the domestic shorthaired cat, “Sioux Foote” the pitbull and “Junius” the german shepherd. She tells us, “Both dogs came from difficult situations and we were able to adopt them and give them a second chance to be terribly spoiled. The cat is just lucky because she runs the roost”. Her husband and her enjoy movies and taking the dogs out to the lake. Between the couple they have an army of siblings, nieces, nephews and family in general which they love to spend time watching sports with and just having a good time all together. But above all, traveling, when possible, is what the two lovebirds look forward to the most. Sara truly loves her job and the staff, which she refers to as “her babies” and boy, do we love her back. As a matter of fact, when is her next vacation day? Can we make that happen soon.
