Brennan Pitard, DVM
Dr. Brennan Pitard, a native of El Dorado, has dreamt of becoming a veterinarian from a very young age and is thrilled to be living his dream. He completed his undergraduate work at Southern Arkansas University. Following that, Dr. Pitard received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2016 from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine, in Baton Rouge, LA. Dr. Pitard’s primary interests in veterinary practice include dermatology and soft tissue surgery. Outside of work, Dr. Pitard enjoys spending time with his wife, Gabby and their two children Mia and Beau. His hobbies include hunting, fishing, and anything else he can do outside! The Pitards have a chocolate lab and a mountain cur. They also added two cats to the family with the help of our local animal shelter, UCAPS. Dr. Pitard took over the ownership of Ward Veterinary Clinic in late 2019 and enjoys serving the pet owners of his hometown community!
Gabby graduated from Southern Arkansas University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. After graduating, she married her high school sweetheart Dr. Pitard and practiced as an RN in Baton Rouge, while he completed veterinary school. After returning to their hometown in 2016, Gabby stayed home to spend time with their two children, Mia and Beau. Once acquiring the practice, she took on the administrative duties of the clinic, while also working part-time as an RN at MCSA here in El Dorado. Gabby now spends her days helping the PAC run smoothly behind the scenes by managing administrative duties, handling everyday work flow and addressing client concerns.
