We're here for you, your pets, and our community, by providing excellent and compassionate veterinary health care, in a clean and comfortable environment.
Dr. Phillips-Jenkins is originally from Tahlequah, Oklahoma - a town about the size of Levelland, surrounded by land and livestock. Her parents, retired teachers, encouraged her early loves of medicine and animals, leading her to pursue both a BS in Biology and her DVM from Oklahoma State University. Dr. Jenkins took over an existing practice in Levelland in 1996, and through the years has expanded CAAC into what it is today. She loves spending time with her three kids, pictured here, and she considers her employees and her clients family, as well! Her favorite veterinary procedures include chemotherapy and surgeries, and her favorite case has been the successful treatment of osteosarcoma in her own best buddy, Amos, a Bernese Mountain Dog.
Dr. Thomas grew up on a farm in Welch, Texas, where she began showing livestock and developed her passion for agriculture. She received her BS in Animal Science from Texas Tech, and has practiced veterinary medicine in west Texas since receiving her DVM from Texas A&M in 2009. Her special interests include orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, ultrasonography, trauma, and education. In addition to practicing at CAAC, Dr. Thomas teaches Advanced Clinical Veterinary Science and Honors Domestic Animal Anatomy at Texas Tech. Her favorite veterinary case was a Great Dane's rotated and strangulated spleen, and her favorite veterinary memory is performing pretend-surgery with her daughter on "Boss", a stuffed Hereford steer!
Having completed her DVM at Texas A&M in 2018, Dr. Middleton is happy to be back in Levelland, and at CAAC (where she's worked off and on since she was 16 years old!) She is a graduate of Levelland High School and holds a BS in Biology from Lubbock Christian University, where she competed in cross country and track. Her special interests include internal medicine, ophthamology, surgeries of all sorts, critical care and trauma, and daily growing her knowledge, skills, and abilities as a veterinarian. Her favorite case (thus far) was successfully coordinating critical care for a Rottweiler in severe anaphylactic shock from an Africanized bee attack.
Our technicians are simply the best! Their education and training combine to qualify them as veterinary surgical assistants, anesthetists, dental hygienists, phlebotomists, radiology technicians, physical therapists, laboratory technicians, trauma and critical care nurses, and more. You name it, our vet techs can get it done!
These are the friendly voices on the other end of the telephone, who'll take care of you every step of the way - from scheduling to check-out. We promise - they don't bite!
We couldn't do without our college students - they are our kennel caretakers, provide extra hands for our doctors and techs, and during Covid, have been our primary parking lot runners.
