Benjamin K. Espy, DVM, DACT

Dr. Espy is an original founder of SNIPSA that received his DVM from Texas A&M University in 1996 and completed a residency in Theriogenology in 2002 from Hagyard Davidson McGee, Lexington, KY – the oldest equine veterinary hospital in the world.  He is now an ambulatory veterinarian in San Antonio and the surrounding area specializing in sports medicine and equine reproduction. He is also licensed to practice acupuncture and uses this form of alternative therapy to complement traditional western medicine.

Dr. Espy is active on many professional boards and currently serves as an animal care consultant for the PRCA, an editor for the Horse Magazine, reviews journal articles for the Educational Programs Committee, and serves on the Ethics and Grievance Committee for the Texas State Board. He has been the head veterinarian for San Antonio’s Stock Show and Rodeo for the past 22 years.

When not crawling underneath horses, Dr. Espy assists SNIPSA performing countless surgeries at their Big Fix clinics, helping with various medical procedures for wayward animals, and supports his wife of 26 years and their four children.

Meet our Rescue of the Week- Braveheart! 🐶❤️

I came from Karnes County to SNIPSA a few weeks ago and though I am a little shy at first and unsure of what lies ahead, I sure do have a big heart! I’m looking for a family that will provide the love, snuggles and security of being a beloved pet – something I have never had. I am confident that with time, my glowing personality will shine through! I am happy to be an only dog or willing to take on a new best friend. Cats don’t bother me and while children are new to me, they sure seem like a lot of fun! Give me a chance and I’ll be your best buddy for life!

Apply for me today and let me show you just how awesome I am! Apply at SNIPSA.org!
