Our Story

Since youth, Drs. Owens and Snead have had a keen curiosity in the health and wellness of animals that started with their very own pets. With a strong understanding that pet health care goes beyond providing food, water, shelter, and a comfortable bed, the doctors decided to fully commit to the veterinary profession, despite the odds being stacked against them.

In an industry that has a representation of less than 2% of the African-American male population, the doctors were determined to be your pet’s voice of reason and understanding.

Through excellent client communication and nearly 2 decades of collective veterinary experience, Drs. Owens and Snead partnered together to co-own 3 animal hospitals throughout the Las Vegas Valley and Henderson Communities.

Inspired to create a community focused on a higher level of pet care, the doctors co-founded Animal Focus Vet, Inc. Animal health care is their top priority, and they are focused on educating clients on their furry loved one’s unique health concerns to provide the best health care options throughout their pet’s life stages and transitions. The difference between living and existing is predetermined by your pet’s quality of life. Animal Focus Veterinarians are here to guide pet owners through difficult conversations to make the best health care choices for their pets in their time of need.
