Our History

The South Towne Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1969 by Dr. Frank Powell and his wife, Judy. The practice began to grow quickly and in 1972, Dr. Tompsett joined the practice. He became a partner in 1974 and purchased the practice in 1989. It didn’t take long for Dr. Edward Gschrey to become a partner to the practice in 1992 and gained full ownership in 2002.
