Education: TAMU class of 1977
TAMU class of 1977, Dr. Gochenour started WHVMA 30 years ago. According to his mom, Mark always wanted to be a veterinarian, saving the local wildlife and strays growing up. His vision of the future of veterinary medicine in prevention and wellness care makes him our leader in continuing to improve the quality of life for our patients through his creation of the Free Vaccines for Life and Healthy Pets for Life programs. He regularly attends continuing education meetings, ultrasound seminars, and performs most of our ultrasound and echocardiogram diagnostics. If your pet needs any of these procedures, you can observe through the glass walls of the special procedures room, and even see what’s going on at the same time through our second monitor! He has 4 dogs, Spotty Brutus the “unknown breed”, Precious the Sheltie, Moonie the Dachshund, and Mini Cooper the Powderpuff Chinese Crested; 5 cats, Britta, Kitty Gaga, E.R, Sox and Smokey; and 2 guinea pigs, Charlie and Peppermint.
