Dr Bennie Zacek has been practicing veterinary medicine and surgery since beginning Kingwood Veterinary Clinic in 1973. In 1979, he had the present Kingwood Animal Hospital facility built and continued as a private practice until 1998 when he joined the corporate veterinary world and became VCA Kingwood Animal Hospital. This move enabled him to spend his time more efficiently with medical/surgical practice and less with management, which is done by his hospital manager. He loves assisting his clients with their pets' health issues while promoting the human/animal bond. Away from practice, he looks forward to spending a week every summer being a 'beach bum' at a Surfside Beach Home with his family including his wife Tracy and 7 grandchildren. He also loves golf, fishing, and the hill country. He has Paddington, a golden retriever, and Prizzi, a shihtzu/maltese, who enjoy going to work with him.
