Dr. Merten Pearson, DVM

Dr. Merten Pearson is a ’93 graduate of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine.  His practice includes small animals and exotics so taking care of the zoo animals is a natural fit.  He has been actively involved in helping the Amarillo Zoo for many years and loves the challenge of finding answers to non-traditional problems (root canals on a lion are NOT a normal part of the veterinary curriculum!)  He is married to Dr. Tiffany O. Pearson, a ’95 graduate of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and they have two children, Cole and Annika.  His other interests include Beekeeping, gardening, astronomy and telescope making, and machining to name a few.
