Dr. Koten, Owner and Veterinarian, Lindale Pet Hospital

At Lindale Pet Hospital, I enjoy working with both small and large animals. I understand that it’s not easy when your family pet or farm animal is sick so I always treat my patients how I would want to be treated myself. I love the challenge of orthopedic surgery, and I am passionate about performing whatever type of surgery is in the animal’s best interest. Along with Joni Koten, my wife and the office manager here at Lindale Pet Hospital, I strive to offer the most up-to-date veterinary medicine and surgery available at an affordable price.

As a hard-working and ambitious veterinary doctor, I do my best to earn your confidence and trust. The well-being of my patients has always been my top priority and will remain so throughout my career. I am pleased to be a member of the Texas Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Joni and I are the proud parents of a son, and a two year old daughter. When we’re not at the clinic, we enjoy spending time together riding horses.

Thank you for allowing me to serve you and the animals you love.

Plus there’s the tree - which looks like an indoor bathroom to your dog.
