Dr. Tony Watson - Veterinarian

Dr. Tony Watson is a native of Tennessee, currently residing in Hall County.

He received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture with Honors and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Immediately after graduation in 1989, Dr. Watson joined a large companion animal practice in Las Vegas, Nevada. This busy practice served as a host clinic for specialists from varied fields and allowed Dr. Watson to experience a wider spectrum of veterinary medicine.

In 1994, he moved to Gainesville, Georgia, and joined a rapidly growing companion animal practice where he remained for 15 years. This practice has allowed him to perform surgery almost exclusively which is his greatest talent and passion.

Dr. Watson is also involved with the Western Veterinary Conference. He began working with WVC while working in Nevada in 1990 as a Chairman. He continued Chairman duties until being voted onto the WVC Board of Directors in 2002. Since his four-year term on the board ended, Dr. Watson has been serving on the WVC Scholarship Committee. In 2007, Dr. Watson took on a newly formed position as WVC Moderator Facilitator. He is currently on the ballot for vice president-elect.

Dr. Watson lives in Oakwood, with his wife, Lisa, and their two children, Alexa and Josh. In his off time, he enjoys going to church, boating, shooting, and speaking to various groups about the many aspects of veterinary medicine and pet care. He is a member of the AVMA, Georgia VMA, and the Northeast Georgia VMA.
