Dr. Joey Vest, DVM

Dr. Joey Vest grew up in the North Texas area and worked for Russell Equine Veterinary Services (which eventually became Brazos Valley Equine Hospitals – Stephenville) after graduation from Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. He eventually returned to TAMU where he studied reproductive medicine and surgery and achieved board certification in Theriogenology. While stationed in abroad with the Army, he also became board-certified in Equine Practice by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.

He and his family settled in Magnolia where he has built a solo ambulatory reproductive practice. He has steadily established himself as a leading voice on reproduction in the area and state and will allow Brazos Valley Equine Hospitals – Navasota to expand further the advanced reproductive services we offer:

  • Embryo flushing and freezing
  • Semen freezing for both domestic and international transportation
  • Oocyte harvesting
  • Management of subfertile mares
  • Management of subfertile stallions
  • Reproductive medicine
  • Reproductive surgery

Dr. Vest is not only a reproduction expert. He has several years as a general practitioner and for the last 3 years served as the Senior Medical Director overseeing multiple Animal Care Centers/Sanctuaries across the country. In this position Dr Vest oversaw the care of dozens of species and over a thousand head of horses and donkeys. He became skilled in not only restraint, but also in medicine and general surgery.

Dr. Vest has also managed a distinguished military career as an US Army Military Reserves Officer. His skills in managing people, complex and intense situations, and a greater understanding for planning and strategy has served him well in his veterinary career.

Dr. Vest married his wife Linette and they currently have two children in college and two girls at home. When not practicing veterinary medicine or leading legions of Soldiers, he likes to spend time with his family and spend time outdoors enjoying hunting and fishing.
