When Jed Rogers and John Faught met in 2011, they knew they shared a common vision: to provide advanced, compassionate veterinary care that is tailored to each human-pet relationship. They opened the first Firehouse Animal Health Center a year later in Austin.
Now, with seven Austin locations and counting, they continue to build the most comprehensive, service-oriented group of veterinary hospitals in Central Texas.
They are proud of the team they’ve assembled and the culture they’ve created – one that offers comprehensive care, unparalleled service, and a collaborative experience for people and the pets of Central Texas.
