Terrell “T-Bone” Buchanan, DVMReturn to Previous Page
Dr. Terrell Buchanan, better known as “T-Bone”, grew up as the youngest son of a farmer in Navasota, Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M with his DVM in 1966 and started his veterinary career working out of a travel trailer in the hardware store parking lot. The practice grew and expanded in many directions from that point.
In 1987 T-Bone founded Brazos Valley Equine Hospital as an equine only medical and surgical hospital in Navasota, Texas. In recognition of the care and expertise provided over the years, BVEH has evolved into a regional hospital for Texas and several other states. BVEH has grown tremendously since T-Bone started the business with the addition of three different hospitals and twelve different veterinarians in Stephenville, Texas, Salado, Texas, and Brazil.
T-Bone’s main interest is Equine Sports Medicine. T-Bone is a renowned practitioner and has spoken at numerous international Equine Sports Medicine conferences. He has been a mentor to hundreds of students and veterinarians. Many of the premier equine practitioners in Texas have learned from him.
T-Bone is married to his lovely wife, Cathy. They have five children all together. Two of their sons, Charlie and Ben, followed in T-Bone’s footsteps and became equine veterinarians, who also married veterinarians. T-Bone and Cathy are known as “Poppa” and “Sugar” to their grandchildren. When T-Bone is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and working on his property.
